A house up in the Himalayas for you to tuck yourself away

-- Mountain Retreat, Mukteshwar

Up in the hills of Uttarakhand, in the town of Mukteshwar, lies a home that is in the middle of a fruit orchard. Surrounded by Deodar and Oak trees, in the heart of Kumaon, is our Mountain Retreat. With crispy cool evenings and warm summers, and snow capped Himalayan views and warm bonfires in the winter – this cottage-style house is a wonderful place to drive up to all year round. True to its name, it’s a place to retreat to and immerse yourself in a wonderful, woodsy world. 

What to Expect At Your Stay

  • Six stone-and-wood cottages that can house multiple people, each with a private sit-out and garden to enjoy nature.

  • The bedrooms are comfortably furnished, and very homely in their decor.

  • The common lounge and dining area are a great place to interact and hang out, as well as the deck which faces the Himalayan vista.

  • The gardens and orchard are great for summery afternoons spent outdoors, or even a little fun in the snow during winter.

  • Local, Kumaoni food which is served in the common area, and cooked with the freshest of ingredients (all sourced from the region).

  • The fruit orchard has its own charm, with the fruits hanging ripe in the summer – enough for you to pick out yourself. 

  • The surrounding forest area is easy to hike in, and you can enjoy a nice walk in the evening or early morning. If you enjoy the trek, you can even try more adventurous trails. 

  • The cottage is close to some interesting spots, only a twenty-thirty minute trek from a gurgling stream, that you can enjoy a picnic beside.
  • There are also day excursions possible to the nearby village, as well as the other known towns of Uttarakhand, such as Almora, Binsar Forest, Ranikhet, Nainital, and Mukteshwar Proper.
