#16 of 120 Speciality lodging in Jim Corbett National Park
Placid mornings, still afternoons and star-studded nights make the recipe for rejuvenating, reinventing or simply taking a break.Tucked away between the North-East periphery of Corbett National Park and the Foothills of Nainital, lies the less traveled area of Kotabagh where the private Foothills nestles.This delightful and refreshing enclave is, so as to speak cradled by the jungle on one sideand the hills on the other.With its gravity fed irrigation channels and bountiful climate, Kotabagh is a paradise for cereals and fruits.Splendid farm patches and orchards dot the undulating landscape.With its proximity to the last great Sal forest of the Himalayan foothills in the bhabar, one can indulge in the gentle but beautiful countryside with long walks and for those wanting more adventure, take day trips along with a local guide into the neighbouring jungles that harbours diverse wildlife. The jungles surrounding Foothills makes it unique as these were the very jungles where Jim Corbett learnt “Jungle Lore” and hunted down dreaded man-eaters and passed on his wisdom through his immortal work.Foothills-Ideal as a retreat, for relaxing, meditating, getting away and perfecting the art of doing Nothing. So when the business of life calls for getting away, from the crowds, the noise, the glamour and its hectic pace … Then its time to Getaway to Foothills.

The place is nestled a lil outside the city and amazingly peaceful. You can gaze the stars play with pets and retreat into your cottage room never wanting to get out except for the delicious meals rushil makes . As a host rushil makes sure your comfortable , also takes you to nearby treks and fishing in season. This place is a gem both in summers and winters for a much needed break .

Our family needed a quick getaway out of Delhi in pandemic times and Foothills was an absolutely beautiful refuge. We arrived as guests and left as family. Our nearly 5-year-old son was swept up and pampered by the team, all meals were excellent and if there's anyone you want to explore this part of Uttarakhand with, it's Rushil. Foothills is now home for us and we can't wait to go back.

Foothills Himalaya was a breath of fresh air. There is so much to love about the property: the hosts are extremely hospitable and friendly, the food is delicious (made mostly with homegrown ingredients), the rooms are comfortable and one feels like they've been transported into a space of tranquillity and peace. It is a great place to land up with a group of friends and from walks, to a swim in the waterfall, to a wildlife safari, to just lying under a sky full of stars, there's something for everyone! If you are a pet lover, you will go back having made some lovely furry friends.

This was our second time here. Warm hospitality at a homestay on the border of tiger country. Rushill and his dad are amazing hosts, with lots of knowledge about the ecosystem and terrain of the area. Rushill is a fabulous chef and his handi mutton is just perfect! Their gentle giant dog Simba and the ever playful Rani were a great hit with the kids. Rushill took us to a beautiful river side setting and recommended a secluded waterfall nearby which were memorable experiences for the family!

This home stay is the best one I have ever been to. The very friendly hosts and their even friendlier dogs were great company. Every day, you can go for long relaxing walks through the mountains and take in the lovely scenery and fresh air. The food there is heavenly and the essence of home-made, with love poured into it. Rushil, the host, is a wildlife expert from everything from being a master at falconry to knowing every animal and bird you see. This place really is the best and I really recommend it.
