GREAT FOR

    Perfect for a small group of friends/ family looking for a weekend getaway from Delhi in the midst of nature surrounded by the hills and lakes of Uttarakhand.

What we love

  • This is one of those perfect hillside cottages that’s been built and created with a whole lot of love and an immaculate design sensibility! It’s one of those places that will immediately transport you to another world, a place that reeks of beauty, charm and happiness with its rustic wooden interiors, colourful potted flowers, cosy shaded areas under the tree, all this and more along with modern state of the art amenities!
  • The cottage has 3 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, 2 rooms have a cozy loft space with double-beds, several comfortable sitting areas in the form of balconies, verandahs and gardens and a fully equipped kitchen!
  • We love how the sunlight streams in here illuminating every little space and providing warmth while you’re in the hills!
  • We love the uninterrupted view of the lake from the cottage.
  • The cottage has a few interesting visitors too! Meet the pretty birds of the Kumaon region and if you’re really lucky, you could even spot a leopard during your stay!

What to know

  • The villa comes with a fully equipped kitchen with a microwave, stove, fridge, tea kettles as well other white goods such as a washing machine and an ironing board with iron. The rooms also have heaters to keep you warm, just incase it gets a little cold outside.
  • The manager of the villa doubles up as a cook. There’s a basic menu available and you can place an order of stuff that’s on it. Please do inform the manager well in advance incase you’re having any meal in the villa so that he can buy the necessary ingredients and prepare.
  • Good news for small pet owners! You may take your pet along as long as he/ she is small and you’re willing to clean up of any mess.
  • We’d recommend buying and carrying your own liquor/ beer or any other food stuff that you may need during your stay.

Awesome Things to do nearby

1

Lakes of Uttarakhand

You’re in the lake district of Uttarakhand! Take a walk to the pretty lake of Bhimtal which is quaint and still off the tourist trail or better still, visit Panna Tal which is a beautiful lake hidden behind pine trees.

Once there, set up your picnic lunch or take a swim in the lake. The place is pretty secluded so avoid going after sunset.

Bird Watching in Uttarakhand

This place is a paradise for bird watchers! Step just outside your cottage and you’ll see them or hear them chirping away.

During spring and summer, the place is swamped with beautiful birds but pheasants and other local birds can be seen through the year.

Some other birds that you may see are the Yellow Billed Magpie, Red Vented Bulbuul Bengalenisis, Blue Whistling Thrush, Oriental White Eye, Black Headed Jay, Barn Swallow, Himalayan Bulbul or the Wedge Tailed Green Pigeon.

Find a spot that you like, get your cup of tea and sit back to enjoy the true delight of the Himalayan birds. The experience is utterly calming and soothing to the senses. Sights that are so tough to otherwise find in a city.
