the space

The property, nestled in a beautiful heritage Himachali village, an hour away from the bustling town of Manali is surrounded by apple orchards and deodar forests. Designed typically to offer guests the feeling of a typical pahadi feel, the hospitality of the host’s family truly make it feel like a home away from home. Built with stone and wood, the Deodar Pahadi home overlooks deep valleys and majestic snow-capped Himalayan mountains.


The property has various options available for stay including double rooms, a loft studio and bunk beds. Tastefully and traditionally constructed with wood, the rooms have large glass windows with views of the mountains that let in air and light all day long. Nights are usually quiet and starlit. The bathrooms are large and private, recreated to fit the needs of today. The property is functional all year.


Enjoy Himachali style meals made from fresh, organic vegetables picked straight out of the in-house garden or from the local markets. Each season offers a different fruit or vegetable! Non-veg meals available on request.
