The Cottage dates back to the Victorian times when Jeolikot became a part of Vergomount Estate. Sir Vergomount prudently chose to locate his estate at an 'all-weather' location, where the climatic conditions would not make it necessary to move from 'hill-stations' to the plains, and vice-versa. Originally established as a health resort, the Cottage was, till independence, run by a Scottish lady and her daughter.
In 1994, Bhuvan Kumari, the present owner realized her childhood dream and made this cottage her holiday home.
