Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Perched atop a quaint hill, this house recently celebrated its diamond jubilee(yes 75 years!). It is a mix of traditional Himachali house which we refurbished to modern interiors while keeping the essence of archaic life alive.
If you love mountains, hiking, and seeking a peaceful getaway close to nature, while being just <5 km away from the main market, then this house is the right choice for you. The house offers a panoramic view of valley filled with paragliders flying from Billing to Bir.

The space
It's a gated property with a big patio overlooking the Bir town (separated by a stream) to sit, relax and enjoy the beautiful mountain view.
The house comprises a master bedroom and a study/kids room with an en-suite bath, which has a hot water facility. Both rooms offer stunning sunset window views. The house is equipped with an indoor common/family space with Bukhari (a wood stove fireplace) which opens up to a ready-to-cook-in kitchen with a drinking mineral water supply. Yes, mineral water runs through all the taps of this home! This common space housing dining and kitchen is made out of stone and mud and is a century-old structure. We have renovated it with modern amenities and made it a comfortable space to cook, eat, work and chill! Be prepared to be amazed by the beauty of vernacular architecture!

This home is equipped with all sanitary needs to keep you calm when you are under pressure (toilet paper, trash bags, napkins, towels, etc). Bathrooms, as well as kitchen, are equipped with hot water geyser, sanitizers, dish-washing soaps and hand wash. The Master bedroom has a hot water kettle with tea and black coffee options(included in room rent). The kitchen has basic items required for cooking, like salt, sugar, spices, and LPG gas connection over a twin burner stove. Pots,pans and other utensils are at your disposal. Just bring your preferred veggies and you are good to go. We do have some basic emergency packed items available at the property like Maggi/Soup/Rice/Dal/Rajma. You can use the same and it'll be charged to you at a nominal market price.

The house is equipped with a powerful, secure wi-fi connection. The laundry facility is available with a 24hour turnaround time.

This is a pet-friendly home! If you plan on bringing a pet, please let us know in advance.
