The songs of the birds, the sway of the daffodils, the murmur of the forest and the call of the Himalayas – the perfect recipe for peace. As you walk up to ‘Hideaway in the Hills’, all these will unfold to you.
From its stunning exterior, to its plush interiors, delicious food and the resident Flying Squirrel, this Unhotel is a haven; a restful sojourn right in the lap of the Himalayas, ideal both for reunions and solo escapades.
Hideaway in the Hills is a delightful, environment-friendly three-storeyed cottage built from locally sourced hand-crafted stone with four bedrooms that offer uninterrupted views of the Himalayas. Each bedroom has a chic yet homely feel and is named after a bird endemic to the area – the Woodpecker, Jungle Fowl, Whistling Thrush and Parakeet. All come with private sit-outs and en-suite bathrooms complete with luxurious shower cubicles. Double-glass windows keep you warm in the winters while providing views to die for.
The cottage features natural wooden beams, skylights, handmade wooden furniture, original artworks, parquet floors and ramps right from the parking to all the rooms for differently-abled and elderly guests.
The food here is home-cooked and delicious, keeping the guests’ preferences in mind although the cook will be more than happy to whip up some local Kumaoni fare like the chicken curry and (vegetables which are grown in the backyard!) The cook is trained in continental fare as well.
This Unhotel offers free parking for guests. All rooms come with heating and ramps for the differently-abled and elderly guests. Although the property practices rainwater harvesting, guests are advised to conserve water since it is scarce in this area.

Explore the beautiful surroundings, go birdwatching and organise a picnic hamper by the riverbank.
