Home in the Hills, near Solan, is the getaway that you never knew you needed. Nestled over 5000 feet high, beside the small, sleepy town of Barog, this Unhotel brings much needed relaxation, warmth, and happiness. Sit back here with a cup of chai on a chilly morning, break a rack of pool with your friends, cook up some delicious barbeque, or simply watch the birds fly by. Time seems to come to a stop. So step through the doors of this lovely hourglass.
The stay is deeply inspired by Scandinavian minimalism in its design.
It is both refreshing and cosy, without being overtly cluttered and overwhelming. The chic decor gives the impression of secluded modernity, equal parts convenience and comfort.
There are five bedrooms for your friends and family to occupy and make your own. Waking up to a cutting chai in the morning, or sitting by the window with a book – or a pair of binoculars – is, in fact, as easy said as done.
Some of the upstairs rooms also come with a private deck for you to enjoy fresh air in seclusion. You can see a mesmerising view of the sunset in Kasauli hills, painting the sky orange over the Dagshai town in the distance. A great place to enjoy some snacks or play some board games!
The common areas are just as welcoming as the rooms. On those chilly winter evenings, find yourself in front of a crackling fireplace and a nice glass of whiskey.
Perhaps snuggle with a warm throw on the squishy couches and bond with your loved ones, or other guests who are enjoying the place just as much as you are!
There is also a nice pool table, and an outdoor seating area for those looking to break a bit of competitive sweat.
