This beautiful home stay is located in Mukteshwar. Built with a beautiful mix of stone and pine-wood, the property offers spectacular views of the snow capped Himalayan Range. The property is right on top of a plateau in the midst of peach and apple orchards. The rooms of the property are beautifully furnished and the view from every room is beautiful to say the least. Fresh fruits from the orchards are served to all the guests and this property manages to give that home away from home feeling. The in-house restaurant offers cuisines such as Indian, Chinese and Continental.
The place had a restaurant so it was extremely convenient and the rooms were no less than the hotel rooms. Perfect.
