The property is located in the middle of a jungle so in order to reach our cottage you will have to cover an off road of about 3km. People who should definitely come are light budget travellers who love to get lost in nature, love sunrise, want to know how fresh vegetable directly from Farms , fresh water tastes like and who are fond of bonfire. So don't wait time just say hello😁 And I will be happy to assist you Vartika Chauhan
“If you want to be far away from the population in a forest on top of the hill then this is the place for you. 17-18 km ahead of Chail and then an off roading for 2-2.5 km by car. Or if you like to hike then climb up the hill from the main road!! Vartika is a great host keeps you guiding till you reach her place. The family is really friendly and if you are lucky you might get to meet their three loving dogs. They don't bother till the time you don't want them to come and play with you. Food is simple yet delicious home cooked dishes. Also veggies are direct farm fresh as they grow their own vegetables. You have an entire forest area around to go hike and some places around Chail to visit. Also enjoy nights star gazing the clear sky or light a bonfire. For rooms you can book a private room but with shared toilets for now. All in all a good experience! Will visit again. 🙂”

“The place is serene and beautiful. It is simplistic yet feels complete.The location and the hospitality of Gulab Singh ji (his family is care taker of the property) are awesome. You will fall in love with the place. Though the location is remote but all logistics is well planned and taken care of. Also , there are absolutely no safety issues for couples/ladies. Aninder Ji is very warm personality. He will guide you throughout right from the time of the booking and is always available on call/message. One can go on hiking trails nearby or can simply stroll through nearby villages. Local Villagers are very welcoming and interaction with locals is always a delight. Sitting besides Bonfire at night and simply stargazing is most relaxing experience. The food is prepared fresh on the property and is homely and delicious. There is a kitchen for your own use and it is well stocked. Plan this trip for long/extra-long weekends, as 1-2 days will feel like too short here. The way to reach the property can be little tricky (tricky means hike can be short or little long) which depends on weather and road condition of the day. So be prepared for it in advance and take regular updates from Aninder ji about the weather and all. In all situations, there is no need to worry as you will be well guided and other logistics taken care of. In nutshell, one of a kind Airbnb experience and worth coming again, kudos to the Host and Gulab Singh ji.”
A 100 year old heritage home revived and refurbished maintaining its traditional kath Kuni architecture, surrounded with apple orchard creates an inspiring environment in which one can relax. Come and be a part of my this new endeavor and discover the unimaginable possibilities of a special kind of holiday, a holiday that engages all your senses and you can count on leaving with refreshed spirits . It's 60 KM's ahead of Shimla in a place called Kotkhai .
“We were a group of 6 students who stayed for 2 nights at this homestay, and had a wonderful time. The Airbnb in itself is beautiful, quaint and clean- the most adorable place we've stayed in :) There was a little Christmas tree in the hall and an angeethi and heaters were provided. It is situated in a quiet area, about 2-3 hours from Shimla and is ideal for a relaxing getaway. We took long walks, enjoyed the breathtaking views and relaxed in the garden with uncle, Shadow (their cute and completely docile dog) and also a fluffy little cat which ran past sometimes. The marketplace is a 5 minute drive from the Airbnb and Digvijay uncle was nice enough to take us there when required and provide us with whatever amenities we needed. Suresh bhiaya is an amazing cook and took care of all our meals. He prepared delicious paneer, chicken curry and parathas which we all enjoyed immensely. Uncle and Suresh bhaiya stay on the first floor so they were always present to help us out whenever required. Bashita ma'am was also available via phone and called to make sure that we were comfortable. Due to the snow, we faced some issues in terms of road blocks and transport- buses were not running. But again, Digvijay uncle really went out of his way to arrange transportation for us. He was on his phone for several hours, reaching out to his contacts and made sure that we reached back safely, no matter how inconvenient it was for him. He could have easily asked us to make our own arrangements, but he chose to help us out and for that we are very grateful. I would recommend bringing your own vehicle (during winter) to avoid these issues with transport. Having said that, despite the road blocks, we got to see and play with snow in Kufri (which is on the way) and witnessesed snowfall in Kotkhai on the first night. We had not seen snowfall before and it was the most magical experience. We truly had a great time and we owe it all to the incredible hospitality and consideration on their part. We will definitely stay over again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet time away from the city.”
