Leaving home should not result in another battle. Adventure is best enjoyed when it is sought, not when it’s thrust upon you in the form of a trying and tiring place of rest. We understand the value of your time and money, and so offer you engaged and empathetic hospitality that is worth it.
We aim to provide an experience that delights with its warmth and comfort. We aspire to be as approachable and accessible as possible. We hope to surround you with an aesthetic that inspires. We will ensure that nothing we do interferes with your experience. We desire that you leave us feeling satisfied, and excited to return.
We are neither a five-star, nor a boutique hotel. We simply believe that there is no replacement for a comfortable, stress-free holiday. As a part of our promise, we strive to serve you delicious, wholesome food, and maintain a high standard of hygiene.
For those seeking adventure, we are familiar with the terrain around Bhimtal, and are more than willing to help you arrange hikes, fishing trips, golf games, mountain biking excursions, picnics, and other such ventures. Please inform us in advance of any activities you’d like to plan, so we can put you in touch with high quality service providers in a range of prices.
We have twelve bed rooms, a large living room and a dining room. The cozy living and dining spaces, with fire places to keep you warm, have been designed to give you space to bond with friends and family. We have kept in mind those childhood holidays in large family homes in Nainital and Srinagar.
Enjoying time off with the family is an experience many of us had, but are unable to provide our children and grandchildren. We hope we can recreate some of that life. Family picnics, card and board games, a book and movie library, and a varied collection of music are all available to enhance your holiday.
The deck is another asset. With its view of the lake hemmed in by hills, it is a great place to soak up the sun or sit under the stars, breathing in fresh mountain air. And in spring, it is a riot of flowers.
In the warmer months, you can opt for morning yoga on the deck. Private, indoor sessions can be arranged by appointment, as well.
Food is our strength. We can do an old fashioned breakfast, with our special baked eggs or mushrooms on toast, old family recipes inherited from our grandparents’ kitchens.
We understand what tea-time means to some, so we make sure they are special. We serve a fine collection of teas, including Darjeeling, Assam, Earl Grey, Masala, Elaichi, Lemon etc., and home-made cookies. Any special requests that you have can also be accommodated.
We offer you delicious and wholesome, home-cooked meals, and welcome requests for favourites.
Our pantry is another feature inspired by past experience. We understand that travelling with kids comes with certain challenges, and want you to have the option of making your kids the food they prefer. Our pantry gives you access to a kitchen space of your own. Feel free to walk in and make a sandwich, pasta or khichdi the way that your kids like it. Our cook would be happy to take special instructions for the same.
Bhimtal’s weather is pleasant through most of the year. Summer temperatures peak at around 25 degrees Celsius, but in winter, temperatures can dip below zero. Bhimtal’s climate depends on the lake, which causes rain nearly every afternoon. We recommend guests carry some sort of warm clothing year-round. Even in summer, evenings can be quite cool.

Leisure, adventure, and religious tourism play a prominent role in Uttarakhand's economy, with the Corbett National Park Tiger Reserve nearby, along with a number of well-frequented hill-stations, including Nainital, Almora and Ranikhet. The state is also home to several peaks that are of interest to mountaineers, although Nanda Devi, the highest and best-known of these, has been off-limits since 1982. Other national wonders include the Valley of Flowers, which, along with Nanda Devi National Park, forms a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Uttarakhand, traditionally known as Devbhumi, or "abode of the gods", houses numerous Hindu shrines, which pilgrims have visited for over a thousand years with of hopes of purification and salvation. Gangotri and Yamunotri, the sources of the Ganga and Yamuna rivers, respectively, are located in the upper reaches of the states mountains and, together with Badrinath (dedicated to Vishnu) and Kedarnath (dedicated to Shiva), form the Chardham of Uttarakhand, one of Hinduism’s most auspicious pilgrimage routes.
The state houses an abundance of temples and shrines, many dedicated to local deities or manifestations of Shiva and Durga, references to many of which can be found in Hindu scriptures and legends. The architecture of most of these temples is unique, and typical of the region. The ancient temples at Jageshwar are among the most prominent because of their distinctive architecture.
In addition, Rishikesh, near Haridwar, is known as the pre-eminent yoga centre of India, and the spectacular pilgrimage to Hemkund is of special significance to Sikhs.
Tibetan Buddhism has also made its presence felt, especially with the recent reconstruction of the Mindroling Monastery and its Buddha Stupa, touted as the world's highest, southwest of Dehradun.
Uttarakhand has a total geographic area of 51,125 km of which 93% is mountainous and 64% is under forest cover. Most of the northern part of the state is covered in the peaks and glaciers part of Greater Himalayan ranges. The lower foothills were densely forested till denuded by British log merchants and later, after independence, by forest contractors. Recent efforts in reforestation, however, have been successful in restoring the forest to an extent.
The unique Himalayan ecosystem is home to a large variety of animals (including bharal, yeti, snow leopards, leopards and tigers), plants and rare herbs. Two of India's mightiest rivers, the Ganga and the Yamuna begin have their sources in the glaciers of Uttarakhand, and are fed by myriad lakes, glacial melts and streams in the region.
Uttarakhand lies on the southern slopes of the mighty Himalayan ranges, and the climate and vegetation vary greatly with altitude, from glaciers at the highest elevations to tropical forests in the lower reaches. The Western Himalayan alpine shrub meadows eco-region lies between the elevations 3,000 and 5,000 meters; tundra and alpine meadows lie above, and shrublands dominated by Rhododendrons lie below. The Western Himalayan sub-alpine conifer forests lie just below the tree line at altitudes between 2,600 and 3,000 meters, and the Western Himalayan broadleaf forests lie between 1,500 and 2,600 meters. The western end of the drier Terai-Duar savanna and grasslands belt, known as Bhabhar, and the moist deciduous forests of the Upper Gangetic Plains, lie below 1,500 meters.
National Parks in Uttarakhand include the Jim Corbett National Park (the oldest national park in India) at Ramnagar in the Nainital District, the Valley of Flowers National Park and Nanda Devi National Park in the Chamoli District, Rajaji National Park in the Haridwar District, and Govind Pashu Vihar National Park and Gangotri National Park in the Uttarkashi District.
