Nainital is a place we all know from our childhood in India. Most of us have spent quite a few summer vacations here. But as we grew up, we rejected this beautiful hill station in favour of other destinations such as Kasol and McLeod Ganj. While there is no dearth of places to explore in India, sometimes my heart wants to go back to Nainital. If you are like me, and want to experience the charm that this place had, without the crowds, you would want to consider Woodhouse Farm.
This property is located in Satoli village, 34km away from Nainital in Uttarakhand. Nainital is just 300km away from Delhi, making it an ideal quick-getaway destination for the weekends.
Because the beauty that this place exposes you to is like no other. From the spectacular views of the snow-clad northern Himalayan ranges from its window to the terrace farm set up on the contours of its roof, everything is perfect. The view of the night sky full of stars will forever stay etched in your memory. The entire house is tastefully decorated with contemporary furniture, bringing the comfort of a luxury hotel with the peace of a village together. The house has four bedrooms and one guest room. The freshly-cooked Himachali food is served in the dining room illuminated by natural light and views of the candy clouds. This village has traditional Himalayan houses all around giving you the chance to witness the local way of life in a mountain village.
