Proper home food and great service.

This was booked through one of my known referrals without knowing much about the place. However, Rittam made sure he spoke with me, let me know on advance about the facilities, how to reach the place and made sure he was in touch with me until I reached the place safely. I would surely recommend this place for both workation or purely for relaxing. The food here is just too good, proper home food and great service. Walkability: Need to talk a 15-0 mins hike/ trek to reach the place however, host is there to help you.

It gives an authentic feel of homestay!

This property is exactly the way it is shown in the pictures. It gives an authentic feel of homestay! Rittam bhaiya and his family made sure that we feel at home throughout our stay. If you want to live in Himachali culture and eat organic himachali food, this is the place for you. Right from pickup & drop, bike rentals, nearby hikes and activities were arranged on demand. The internet connection was also good enough to enable a seamless workcation for us. Pics don't do justice to Laida's beauty, peace, and simplicity. This time our stay was for a week, next time it will be for a month for sure. Rooms: Rooms are very clean, tidy and well maintained. Nearby activities: Plenty of small hikes nearby with amazing views. Walkability: It is a 15 minute hike through the village from the main road towards the top of the hill, but the host will help in carrying all the luggage. Food & drinks: Pure authentic and organic himachali food is served here. Very tasty, healthy and cooked with love.

The place has amazing views

This place has a very homely vibe and the people here are so kind and deeply rooted to their culture that you will feel like you are around your Family. The place has amazing views, Short treks, all facilities and to top it all the most delicious local Himachali food I’ve ever had. I’m so glad that I got to meet Rittam bhaiya and his family, he is such a helpful person he also made sure we reach and depart from the property safely and also helped us with bus booking, cab booking, booking stays at diff places and many moreee he is just an all rounder. They welcomed us with Himachali topi and Buransh juice(local flower), bhabhi also made me wear pattu(Himachali attire). The property itself is so beautiful and with cold nights in bonfire, food made with love and best vibes around non -judgemental people you won’t feel like leaving, which made me come back again before leaving for mumbai :p celebrated new years at this awesome stay with the best people
