“Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.”- Gary Snyder

In the midst of our bustling lives, we often find ourselves seeking solace in the arms of nature, yearning to reconnect with the earth from which we have emerged. And in nature, we find a respite from the noise and chaos of the modern world.

Nestled deep within the embrace of the Kaudia Range at 7200 ft, Hushstay x Garhwal is an exclusive 02 bedroom stone cottage that invites you to forge a deep connection with the natural wonders that surround it. As you embark on the short 5-minute uphill walk towards the cottage, leaving the hustle and bustle behind, you enter a realm of pure serenity: The air feels crisper, the scenery more enchanting, and an indescribable sense of tranquillity washes over you. 


Time slows down at this intricately refurbished century-old house that is an architectural beauty in itself. Set in the midst of terraced wilderness, at just about 40 km from Mussoorie and 70 km from Rishikesh, this place feels like a different world altogether.

At Hushstay x Garhwal, you will find more than just a place to rest your head; you will discover a profound connection to nature, a home away from home that rejuvenates your spirit and rekindles your love for the simple joys in life

Hushstay x Garhwal is a sanctuary for the soul. 

Every facet of its space is a masterpiece in harmony with its awe-inspiring surroundings. The architecture and design of this 02 Bedroom mountain cottage effortlessly blend traditional charm with modern comfort, creating an enchanting haven that captivates the senses.

Built upon the foundation of a 100-year-old traditional mountain home, The Garhwal showcases the timeless beauty of laying flat stones upon each other, forming walls that exude rustic allure. Within its cosy embrace, you will discover a meticulously crafted interior, where traditional architectural elements intertwine with contemporary elegance. The large French windows frame panoramic views, inviting nature's magnificence to seep into the living space gracefully.

Split across terraced fields, the outdoor spaces beckon you to shed the trappings of modern life and find solace in the embrace of nature's wonders. A gazebo sits on the lower level and is ideal for a hearty breakfast with a view or to unwind in the evenings. 

The charming rustic ambience transports you to a bygone era, while the comforts of a mountain cottage envelop you like a warm hug.



Each of the two rooms of this minimalistic but snug house is designed for quietude and comfort, marked with understated elegance that blends in with the sights and sounds of its surrounding forests. Massive glass windows usher in plenty of natural light, while stone and wood trap the warmth indoors. One of the rooms overlooks the majestic Sarkanda Devi Temple while the other room offers vistas of snow-covered Himalayas on a clear day.

The ample stone work carries on into the bathroom, and compliments its contemporary fittings.

Beautifully crafted wooden furniture including floating beds and tables shaped from driftwood, handpicked copper jugs and flasks, cosy bedspreads and rugs, the warm glow of lamps, and world maps that adorn the walls to fuel your wanderlust, all enhance the feel-good factor of your stay at The Garhwal.
