Located over a landscaped green hill in a village called Majkhali, a peaceful personal retreat and a splendid escape near Ranikhet, at just 8 hours drive from Delhi, 2 hours drive from Nainital / Bhimtal. A 50 Km drive further takes you to hill stations like Kausani, Binsar, and Almora

The Space: A beautiful duplex Chalet overlooking a gorgeous forest covered valley, and tall Himalayan peaks. The entry to the Chalet is through a dazzling entry foyer, with a sun soaking bench. The main entry door opens into a resplendent double height Living room, with huge french windows and bay windows, to let that morning sunlight brighten up the whole Chalet. The Chalet has 2 marvelous rooms, the first bedroom - located on the entry side of the Living room overlooking the entry foyer and the lawns, and the master bedroom - located on the other side of the Living room, overlooking the lawns and the hills. The Master bedroom has an exquisitely decorated Queen Size Bed, a mini library, and a fun lounger next to a huge bay window, giving breath taking views of the hills from any corner. The Master bedroom has a cute attached bathroom with all modern fixtures. The First bedroom is a double height room, with wooden roof, an aesthetically decorated double bed, and french windows on both sides of the room. We have also given a dressing table in the First bedroom, for the ladies who wish to carry their accessories. There is a common bathroom between the First Bedroom and the Living room. The Living room has a beautiful bay window sitting, and a comfortable lounge sitting for upto 8 guests. The Living room is fitted with a 32" LED TV for recreation, and has a Wifi internet accessibility through a 3G dongle device (the network in the hills is a problem, and we cannot guarantee accessibility). The Living room also has a fully functional fire place for those chilly winter months, to keep the entire Chalet very cozy. Adjacent to the fire place, is a small yet beautiful rosewood writing table, if you wish to make some notes, or write some poetry sitting by the fire. Across the fireplace is cute open kitchen with all modern amenities and equipment including a microwave, refrigerator, RO water purifier, Toaster, and Electric Kettle, and the required cutlery, crockery and cookware to cook a sumptuous meal. A wooden stairway next to the kitchen leads to the Attic on the upper level. The Attic is a beautiful wooden platform overlooking the Living room below, and the bay windows in front. The attic is decorated with Sun Loungers, which can be taken down to the lawns if required, to soak in some hot sun in the cold weather. Next to the Attic is an additional room, which serves as a recreation room, or an extra room for a larger group, and houses another fire place, a futon, and a small diwan single bed. The recreation room has a balcony overlooking the lawns, and offers views of the valley and the peaks from a floor above. The Chalet has power back up through UPS system, which will power the lights and fans, however heavy electronics like kitchen equipment, geysers / water heaters, room heaters, electric iron, and hair dryers cannot be used on power back up in case of a power outage. We provide fresh linen and towels at the time of every check in. Linen & towel change is provided every fourth day, in case the stay is longer than a week. Housekeeping is provided every alternate day for cleaning the Chalet between 10 AM to 12 PM. Utensil cleaning service is provided daily between 10:00 A. M. To 11:00 A. M. And between 3:00 P. M.

The neighborhood: Watching the sun rise over the mighty snow covered peaks, or an afternoon beer sitting under the bright sun, lounging on our sun beds, makes our Chalet a blissful experience. The neighborhood is a beautiful, non commercialized, mountain village, with few residential cottages, and resorts. If you are lucky, you may hear the leopard growl, sometimes at night, from the forest below. The place is a heaven for Artists, Photographers, Bird watchers, and Star gazers
