The Homestay

It is a British Era Cottage built in the late 1880s and is located right in the middle of Bhimtal town. It is converted into a heritage homestay by Manas Bisht, a local resident of Kumaon. Manas is pursuing MA in Ancient Indian History and came across this beautiful historic treasure and felt sad to see how our heritage is crumbling. So he along with his father decided to restore it and convert it into a heritage homestay for those who can appreciate the legacy. 

The homestay has a beautiful mix of British and Kumaoni architecture. It has 6 rooms for the guests, of which 4 are double bedrooms, 1 triple bedroom and a dormitory. There is an in-house Café, private parking, lawn, workstation, fiber optic internet, TV with TataSky connection and 24/7 power backup with the solar heating system. The recreational area has indoor games, a projector, and a small library which will help you to understand British Kumaon.
