About Our Eco Stay

Escape to our premium Kumaoni Boutique Homestay, a two-room fairytale house nestled in the heart of Mukteshwar, Uttarakhand. The first room, adorned with two queen-sized beds and an indoor wooden fireplace, accommodates up to four guests, while the spacious second room with a queen bed is perfect for two, both offering breathtaking views of the valley and oak-covered mountains from the connected verandah. Our property is situated on-road, you just need to take 10-steps downstairs to enter the place.

Built by local artisans using Koti Banal architecture, this sustainable accommodation spans 5 acres of private land, allowing guests the freedom to explore and experience the slowness of the place.

Committed to environmental preservation, we minimize electricity usage, plant 100 oak trees annually, and employ traditional methods in our kitchen, using clay pots for cool water in summer. Indulge in a farm-to-table experience with Kumaoni meals, crafted by our chef.

Our commitment to sustainability extends to sourcing 98% of spices, pulses, vegetables, and dairy from our own farm. Basically, you can pick your own food from the farm. Immerse yourself in the traditional lifestyle of Uttarakhand, from village tours to engaging with the local communities. For thrill-seekers, paragliding centers are just hours away, while Mukteshwar offers awe-inspiring views of snow-capped peaks within a half-hour’s drive.

Perfectly situated for birdwatching, stargazing, moonlight treks, our boutique stay is a scenic 3-hour drive from Pantnagar Airport and 2 hours from Katgodham Railway Station, offering one of the best road trips in the Himalayas. Book your stay for a harmonious blend of nature, tradition, and adventure.
