We had a great time here. Ishaan is a wonderful host and we met some friendly people at the place. The views were a delight to wake up to and the home cooked food was delicious too. They also accompany you for a forest walk which takes you through woods and to a river bank. The meadows are also a walkable distance from here. It was nice to meet Mowgli, the pup, who was in a feisty teething stage.09/03/2023
The moment we set eyes on this place, we fell in love with it. The warmth, the aesthetics, the serenity, the magnificent nature surrounding this place, the authentic Himachali food that's difficult to find elsewhere, the team that pampered us to no end and last but not the least, the host who made us feel right at home, Ishan. Ishan has put in a lot of love and labour to make this place the way it is and it shows. He gives his guests full attention, just like a family member. We will always remember evenings spend with beautiful himachali music in background, having wonderful conversations with him. His taste in music is exquisite and that adds to the aura of this place. Thanks so much Ishan and team for providing us with another place we can call home in Himachal, can't wait to be back. We wish you nothing but the best, sending much love your way.11/10/2023
Oh wow. What an experience. Had an opportunity to stay at this place for one day earlier this year. What a wonderful host Ishaan is. The place is an experience - lovely cosy rooms, amazing local delicacies. For us we were lucky to witness snowfall - and the talks we had post dinner till late night will be itched in the memory for years to come. Would definitely visit again. Thanks Ishaan, you are an amazing host.08/11/2023
It is the place if you want to go somewhere for peace and to find solitude. The room was super cozy, the food was delicious and the views are to die for. Also the host and staff are sweet and friendly. Its like a home away from home.04/08/2022
