    "A heritage bungalow near Lake converted into a typical Neemrana non-hotel style offbeat experience. Verandah is the best place to arrive for a "do nothing" or "read a book" kind of traveller. Its also a kind of place where one can keep walking in the woods in complete solitude or enjoy a nice conversation with family."
