I stayed with my family for 3 nights in the Cottage Nigeen , which is located in the peaceful part of Kashmir and is very close to the lake, golf course and other places of interest. The stay was fabulous - comfortable rooms, neat toilets , lovely front lawns, rich kitchen garden, delicious food and above all " The welcoming and warm hosts" in Shakila and Riaz .
The Cottage Nigeen is by far the best home-stays that I have been to, this far. And I have traveled quite a bit including some amazing places abroad and in India. While it is not justifiable to compare all these places, the home stay at Nigeen stands out as a forever memory because of the wonderful hosts and the beautiful, well kept and homely cottage that we stayed in. Shakila, the lady of the house is a well read, gracious and talented person who will go out of her way to make your stay memorable. Her knowledge of Kashmir's history, her home cooked food and her simple conversations enriched our stay and gave us wonderful insights in the places we visited. She had quick and helpful suggestions for our itinerary too. Overall the place gave us a very relaxed, happy and content feeling. We could see the Himalayas from our little bedroom window, read any genre of books from the little library in the reading room and order home made food when we felt like staying indoors and enjoying the lovely flora and fauna in her well kept garden. I do want to visit this place again and again and God willing we shall.
Vacations can be a bit hectic when travelling with the entire family, but The Cottage Nigeen definitely made it a lot easier for my family. Every room is so unique with such brilliant furniture that one is able to see true Kashmir simply by sitting in a silent corner, Our hosts, Mr. Riyaz and Ms.Shakeela Qazi helped us absorb the beauty of the food they served and made our stay extremely comfortable. We all are left with such brilliant taste in our mouth that my kids keep asking me when we shall return to that Haven, to that Cottage Nigeen.
We stayed at The Cottage Nigeen on the last leg of our Kashmir 2016 holiday for 3 nights! The four bedrooms we occupied were on the first floor of the quaint bungalow, so tastefully furnished and decorated in traditional Kashmiri style. Clean linen and toilets added to the homely feel. The hosts Shakila and Riyaz were wonderful, like long lost friends. In spite of the Ramadan month having begun, we got their unstinting attention in planning our meals and guiding us through daily plans and shopping. The duo in the kitchen Tahira and Sanju were so polite and soft spoken. They took great care of us too. We got to eat food made from organic vegetables grown right there in Shakila's kitchen garden!
The Cottage Nigeen was a wonderful find. Our experience at Srinagar would have been truly disappointing if we had not stayed at the cottage. The hosts were extremely warm, hospitable and the home stay was efficiently run. The rooms were spacious and well decorated.The local Kashmiri food served to us was outstanding. The garden was a delight especially with the home grown fruit and vegetables. Our experience was enhanced with tips about sightseeing, shopping and general discussions about lifestyles in Kashmir by our hosts. Highly recommend this place to all.
