This year on 2nd and 3rd Jan, we stayed in McCluskeyganj in a wonderful accommodation of Mr Sekhar Bose, named Gulmohar. The entire booking had been done by Mr Rajesh Chowdhury on behalf of Mr Bose. I got full cooperation and assistance from Mr Chowdhury regarding selection of property in McCluskeyganj and the booking of that. Not only that, he also helped me by providing information on Netarhat and Betala, whenever I asked him.
Regarding Gulmohar, it’s a huge area in which the Gulmohar has been built by Mr Bose last year. I am a frequent traveller, but till date I hardly have seen such a nice personality, like Mr Sekhar Bose. We had 4 kids altogether, among them 2 were less than 3 years. But we never felt anysorts of inconvenience for a single moment. We never felt that we are away from home. Food was also delicious, cooked by Madam herself for every single guest. We celebrated our son’s birthday there in a wonderful manner, which we will never forget and that credit also goes to Mr Bose.
McCluskeyganj is a wonderful place. One need to feel the essence of silence of nature there. One need to know the past of McCluskeyganj. The peace heaven is waiting for his guets to come.
My best wishes for GULMOHAR ! May it flourish more and more !
Thank you McCluskeyganj, Mr Chowdhury and Mr Bose afterall.
I have stayed in Raja Bungalow.The area is beautiful and peaceful.The staffs are courteous and helpful. This place is highly recommended.
We had been to MCcluskiegang and stayed at Mr. Rana’s Country Cottage for two nights (26th & 27th January,’20).
We are fortunate that still such a serene place exists on earth. Mr. Rana is not just the owner but a true well wisher and ready to extend all possible help, if needed. Mrs. Rana is the pivot of the cottage and looks after the guests like an aunt/elder sister. She always keeps a close eye on everything. The cuisine she offers are excellent, whether it is Indian or western.
Bajrangi and Shyamsundar were always at beck and call and ever smiling. We also thoroughly enjoyed the company of Murphy,Caesar and Teddy (pets of Mr. and Mrs. Rana).
Now, the ambience of MCcluskiegang. It is still holding the old charm of the British era. Though many of the cottages have become almost beyond repair. But, you can, perhaps, still feel their presence.
We simply rested at the cottage, chatted, dined and strolled around and tried to breathe the fresh air, as much as it was possible.
Last but not the least. We must thank Mr. Rajesh for suggesting and arranging such a nice place at MCcluskiegang.
Those who love nature must visit MCcluskiegang.
Thanks and happy travelling.
Journey is the best part of reaching the Destination. Visiting McCluskeygunge was different. Adventure started once we reached the place. I will thank Rakesh bhai for guiding me through the journey. Being a remote place whatever we received was luxury. Identifying tourist and getting a traveller, is a different thing which Rakesh bhai has very well judged. I went with two senior citizens 70+ and found the place as one which provides happiness for all age groups. A serene and calm place will be enjoyed a lot by nature lovers. Will love to visit when the Palash blooms. Thank you. Jharna Panda
We planned a short family trip to Mcluskieganj this time….inspite of the negative attitudes of friends and relatives about this place. What a treasure hunt it was with nature unfolding its beauty at each end of the serpentine road from Netarhat to Mccluskiegunj. For nature lovers this is an ideal place to sit and enjoy the lush green meadows in the midst of silence . Added to this was the warm hospitality of Rana uncle and auntie …and the delicious cuisines prepared from their kitchen. The homestay was much better compared to Jharkhand tourism hotels at Netarhat and Betla. We are again planning to visit very soon.
I visited Mr. Rana’s Cottage and simply felt like it was like my home. I had my extended family of In-laws, mother and my own family with and we all were in complete awe of the place. One cannot expect anything better here and we are truly thankful to Mr. Rana and his wife for the hospitality they had extended during the stay. I would also sincerely than Rajesh for planning and arranging my entire trip which started in Netarhat and ended here. It was truly amazing how Rajesh gave details of everything that one needs while travelling and staying in home comfort. Thank you Rajesh once again.
Mr.Rajesh had planned a trip for us. After spending a day each at Netarhat, Maromar, and Betla, we reached McCluskieganj.
McCluskieganj was suggested by Mr.Rajesh primarily as a place to relax after the hectic trip, before we return to our busy lives. He had booked a room for us at Rana’s Country Cottage.
The moment we reached the Home Stay of Mr.Deepak Rana (more popular as Uncle) and his family, we were bowled over by their hospitality. In addition to the cozy accommodation, we also enjoyed the delicious dishes prepared (or, supervised) by Mrs.Rana or Aunty, as she is fondly called. Besides, the family’s assistant ShyamSunder was also prompt with the services for the guests.
The foods were fresh and tasted really good. When Aunty came to know that it was our wedding anniversary, she specially prepared an amazing pulao and chicken for us. Besides, the paranthas for breakfast as well as the pakoras for evening snacks were mouth-watering as well.
We also had the opportunity to talk to Mr.Deepak Rana’s mother, the 97-year young lady Mrs.KanchanPrabha, who comes from the Tripura Royal Family. She explained to us the history of McCluskieganj and also of the cottage – how she had bought a dilapidated bungalow inside the forest in 1962 and turned it into this amazing cottage.
A walk around the place in early morning was refreshing. We came across a number of birds and even a fox in the woods. If you’re there for just a day (as we did), you might find yourself appreciating the beauty of Rana’s Country Cottage and its amazing guests – the birds and the butterflies – and find the day pass by in no time at all.
The trip was so amazing that I would again like to thank Mr.Rajesh and LittleWings for arranging it in such a flawless manner.
we were at Mr.Rana’s Guest house for two days through Rajesh. It is an eye opener for us to stay with a vast land of greeneries rather than a so -called star hotels. The hospitality that we got from Rana’s family is beyond of language from welcoming to food and obviously on caring. we have very much enjoyed the noiseless vast land of saal that make a heaven piece of eyes. we were awaken by a lots of birds tune and went for sleep with the light of full moon through saal. The house of Mr Rana is not only heritage but giving us a new art & culture. we hope to come again.
Excellent Hospitality by Mr. & Mrs. Rana and their team. Special thanks to Mr. Rajesh for his detailed guidance for the entire tour.
Its a very nice place to rejuvinate from the city life. If one is travelling in a group, a couple of days at Mr. Rana’s place is just a wonderful experience.
The food is great, absolutely home made. We even had a excellent barbeque.
There is a small rivulet nearby the place. Very calm and serene. Definately a place to visit if you have 3 to 4 days in hand and want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
One final thanks to littlewings and Mr. & Mrs. Rana
Where to begin…
Little Wings helped us decide on Mccluskieganj as a holiday destination. Mr. Rajesh (LIttle Wings) was really helpful in providing us intricate details and places of special interest in this quaint yet beautiful hamlet even before we visited. This made our Holiday all the more enjoyable.
We spent two nights (24th & 25th September 2017) and it was wonderful. The place had just been renovated.
We chose Rana’s Country Cottage not only for its location, amazing gardens, staff and atmosphere but for the sheer ease of every aspect regarding the planning and execution of the days we were there.
The hospitality was simply outstanding. Never did we hear a NO from RANAJI and his team. The entire team could not have been more helpful, especially dealing with the number of requests we had. We were treated to fresh fish, chicken and mutton for lunch and dinner over the course of our stay. The owners were so welcoming, lots of lovely homely moments and memories.
The rooms were amazing and just off the main garden and it offered amazing serenity.
Thanks again to TEAM RANA’s COUNTRY COTTAGE & Little Wings. Rest assured we will be back soon.
