At Bir, we stayed at the LaMaison for 2 days and had a lovely experience with the hosts Preeti and Ranjit, taking good care of us. We were actually booked into another homestay and had to change suddenly and Preeti came to our rescue at a moment’s notice in the night. The B&B is about 2+ kms from the Tibetan market and the rooms are neat and clean, not to mention the whole house exudes a charm. Every time at the dining table, the hosts took out time to sit and chat with us and we never felt rushed to leave and that stood out. Preeti was always up for a chat and her cooking is something to look forward to. While we asked for an extension by a few hours on the last day which they obliged, they were very mindful not to charge us for lunch, tea or the car ride, We highly recommend the place and left hoping someday we might come back and enjoy the dham (himachali cuisine) and their hospitality.

Preeti & Ranjit open up their home and hearts for every guest at their homestay! La Maison Bir is a centrally located, well designed with great sunlight home. They have kept a family like atmosphere including the passionately cooked breakfast they serve to the homestay guests. We loved our time in Bir and at La Maison. The sunset from their terrace is most memorable!

La Maison is a peaceful, vibrant & tastefully decorated abode nestled in the lap of nature. Duration: We stayed for 4 nights. Holiday: Leisure, Couple Location: 1-1.2 Kms from Landing site. (Landmark Learn Well School) Transport: Parking Space is Available + You can rent a bike/Scooty on a daily basis for local sight seeing. Food: Home cooked vegetarian meals prepared with love. Ambience: Perfect to calm your mind, body & soul. Occupancy & Comfort: Attached Toilet Bath with essentials & Basic amenities during your stay. Bonus : Excellent Wi-Fi & network coverage. Things we loved: - We loved the Breakfast! The use of home grown and organic ingredients were used for cooking meals ( Local dish-Sidhu, Chutney, Rajma, Aloo Puri, Palak Saag, paranthas, sandwiches, choley, paranthey) and served to us with love. - Beautiful decor of the house, interiors or outdoors, there is an eye to detail at La Maison. - Homely atmosphere yet private, so occasional catch ups, singing, humming, or just self musing on their porch alone. - The chirping of birds, you might as well get lucky & see some rare birds :) - Refreshing fragrance, Cool & comforting linens & bedding in the room. - The positive vibes of the house, spacious sitting areas, indoor games in case you make friends on the go :) - Their adorable pet Buddy, the plantation in the backyard. - Their ambience was perfect for a family or people who would appreciate no nuisance or disturbance. They are particular about their house rules, because they care about you and your stay just like anyone else’s stay at La Maison! - The hosts are very friendly, they helped us with reliable support of pick up & drop. Guided with local sight seeing and made special local cuisine as a surprise! P.S. We were touched by their sweet gesture of ordering a cake for my hubby on his birthday. Thank you Preeti & Ranjit Ji for hosting us & making our stay memorable!

La Maison has a very calming and soothing vibe. The hosts are a very warm and welcoming family with a friendly dog named Buddy. The decor and the collection of books give a very homely and comforting feeling. The highlight of our stay was the breakfast spread - a large variety of dishes ranging from continental to Indian to traditional himachali, accompanied by fruit juice, milk/tea/coffee/corn-flakes, jam and butter. The hosts also helped us arrange for paragliding tour, taxi and two-wheelers. Additionally, they helped us plan our daily itineraries to the nearby attractions and recommended good cafes and restaurants. Taxi drivers at the bus stand didn't understand the location at first. However, they were quickly able to coordinate with La Maison to get proper directions. We liked the place so much that decided to extend our stay. Very highly recommended for those looking for a calm and comfortable homely stay.

Everything is so well planned here that by the time you leave this place you start loving the owners. Choice of each item is perfect. The accesories in toilets to the books available at each place... Simply superb. The food too is fantastic. It's not hotel so you need to be disciplined and need to follow the home rules. For example... you can't carry your shoes to your room. Just go ahead and book with them you will be very happy with them. They will plan your itinerary and guide too ..

We were two families (three adults, two kids) on a workation in Himachal. We moved from Dharamsala to Palampur to Bir over a span of 2 months and stayed in four different homestays. This is hands down THE BEST experience we had. 1. The property is gorgeous. The photo gallery you see on google is accurate. The interiors are exactly as you see in the photos - the home is tastefully done, there's art in all corners, and the place is squeaky clean ALL the time. 2. The food is to die for. The simplest of dishes taste exquisite just because the ingredients are fresh, the spices are light, and they feed you with a lot of love and care. 3. The two helpers seem very happy with their job, which reflects in their smiles. They never say no, no matter what you ask. 4. The steady wifi, power backup, and the cosy little workspaces they've got made it super easy to work. There were no interruptions at all to our work schedule. 5. During our stay, there was once a water crisis (as we found out later), but as guests, we never felt anything at all - Preeti managed it all behind the scenes. 6. The hosts are THE MOST gracious people I've ever met. Never saw anything other than a smile on their faces despite the fact that we had two rambunctious kids who were constantly yelling and running - they could've razed the place to the ground but the hosts would not even flinch. All in all, this was the best part of the two months. I'm definitely going back there, and staying much (much) longer this time.

Home away from Home | Beautiful Location | Warm Hosts | Unforgettable Experience Before completing the booking, I talked to Ranjit and enquired about the property & other details. It was humble & satisfactory conversation with Ranjit that convinced me about my decision to stay at La Maison. As soon as we reached La Maison Home Stay, it was that warm welcome by Ranjit and Preeti which made us feel super comfortable & excited for our upcoming stay. We were overwhelmed with the beautiful interior decoration, spotless living area, wonderful wall paintings, superb books collection and relaxing furniture The rooms were also very clean, and again the best quality products in the entire room including the washroom. The best part is the view from the rooms and the rooftop, we could look all day around and not get tired. A vivid Dhauladhar Range, lush green fields all around and parachutes in the air taken of Billing, this serenity will make your mornings lovable. As the stay is located around 1.5-2 kms from the Landing site (which is actually a plus point), there was no disturbance and it was a very peaceful place. The evenings & post dinner conversations made everyone staying at La Maison feel like a bonded family and all the credit goes to Ranjit & Preeti for arranging these memorable times. We really appreciate the delicious Himachali food prepared by Preeti with so much love and hard work. Not only did Ranjit & Preeti take care of us like family, they also arranged one of the best Trainers for Paragliding (very important to have an experienced pilot) and recommended a visit to Bhattu Monestry (around 20 Minutes from Landing Site) and a day trip to Barot Valley (one of the most beautiful valley I have ever seen - around 50-60 Kms i.e. 3 hours one way from Bir). It was very hard to say goodbye it was a soulful experience. We had a very relaxed and yet a very exciting trip to Bir and I would like to give all that credit to Ranjit and Preeti who are exceptional hosts. For those of you, who want to book at La Maison, I would strongly recommend that as you would come back from Bir with fascinating memories and a graceful experience. I can write on and on but I don't want to steal your thunder. Here are some additional facilities in the stay: Car Parking Area Bonfire for the wonderful evenings Bookshelf & a good collection of Books Hanging Swing in the balcony for enjoying the book reading or having a cup of tea Awesome Food .......... and many more things !!

It's beautifully built boutique house where each wall is decorated with a painting and each corner is decorated with a beautiful piece of art. I fell in love with the place when I entered. Another best part of this place is its amazing hosts who made me feel so comfortable that I by the end of spending 3 nights felt this place is going to be my vacation home forever.

#1 - The hosts. They are typical himachali hosts who will welcome and take care of you as a family. #2 - Place. It is best place in entire bir billing. It has bonfire, beautiful paintings, breathtaking views, big terrace, awesome home cooked food. #3 - Bir Billing. You should defintely do paragliding here. It is not at all scary and you will have an expert with you so need not worry about safety. You can try cafes, food, music, monastery nearby.
