Our property is managed by Hostie - an operations management company for boutique travel homes in India.

Our care taker - Chandan stays nearby to the cottage, and is available to take care of our guests. Chandan can assist our guests for helping them in chopping / basic cooking if you so require during his working timings. A small charge of Rs. 500 per day is payable to him for seeking his help in chopping / basic cooking. However, Chandan might not be able to cook full meals / meals for larger groups (so please do not ask him to do so).

About the neighbourhood
Watching the sun rise over the mighty snow covered peaks, or an afternoon beer sitting under the bright sun, 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.

Our property is located on Digoti - Majkhali road, near Vimoksha Valley I & II townships, and Woodsvilla & Vimoksha Resorts. The property is easily accessible by car, and we have a dedicated parking bay for our guests. The access to the parking bay is through a non paved stone road. Private and Shared Taxi's are available from Majkhali to Ranikhet. A ride in a shared taxi to Ranikhet costs only Rs. 25 per way.
