HUSHSTAY X WOODHOUSE
Satoli, near Mukteshwar
Up to 12 Guests
5 Mins Walk from Parking
"The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness."
At just about 45kms from Nainital and 12kms from Mukteshwar, far away from the maddening crowd of a popular hill station and tucked away somewhere in a quaint little village called Satkhol is a gorgeous 05-Bedroom Farmstay aptly called “Hushstay x Woodhouse”.
As you walk towards the house through a blissful setting consisting of peach, plum and apricot orchards, it almost feels as if you are leaving behind what's real and stepping into a Claude Monet painting: Colourful Scenery, clear blue skies, cotton clouds and virgin mountains for as far as the eye can see. Walk a little further and the striking wooden cottage rises against a majestic backdrop of snow-covered peaks of the Himalayas.

Kumaoni cooking lesson with our Chef
Pluck your own vegetables, gather the raw materials and let our chef teach you how to prepare one of those delectable Kumaoni dishes.
Located at 6,500 ft and clad in locally sourced wood “Hushstay x Woodhouse" has been designed by Matra Architects. It comprises a 01 Bedroom Log Cabin (Kamet) and a 04 Bedroom cottage (The Main House) which is an architectural marvel in itself.
The unique layered design of the Main House blends in perfectly to match the existing terraced terrain and the peaked all-glass-roofline mimics the mountains beyond while allowing daylight to flood the interior arranged over stepped-levels.
The interiors of our boutique wooden cottages are just as unique as its exteriors. All rooms are spacious and have been carefully decorated with chic interiors. The large windows offer vistas of famous Himalayan peaks such as Trishul, Nanda Devi, Chaukhamba, Neelkanth, Nandaghunti and Nandakot.
The interiors of our boutique wooden cottage are just as unique as its exteriors. As you enter the house, you will find a large living hall spread across different levels comprising a kitchen at the top, a dining area one level below, and a lounge on the lowest step. The large window wall of the lounge area offers vistas of Himalayan peaks such as Trishul and Nandakot.
The 04 bedrooms of this boutique vacation home are laid out below the peaked glass-roofline on 02 floors. The 02 bedrooms on the ground floor open up to the garden while the other 2 bedrooms offer a glimpse of the beautiful starry night sky through their glass roof.
Besides the 04 rooms of the main house, there is an additional independent one-bedroom log cabin right next to the main house. The Kamet is a 01 Bedroom Log Cabin at the Woodhouse that combines quaint décor with all modern amenities while offering you the privacy you need. There is also a private outdoor seating area that acts as the perfect place to read a book or enjoy the sunset.

HUSHSTAY X WOODHOUSE
“Best place to stay in Mukteshwar. We had one of the most memorable stays at Hushstay x Woodhouse. Absolutely loved it. The staff is very warm and welcoming. The walking trails are beautiful. The mountain views are beautiful. Food is so so delicious. The place has many elements, or if I may say 'Magic', which makes you feel at home. We went on the weekend of 15th Aug during the pandemic for 4 days. We were a group of 13 friends. It was one of the best experiences of our lives. Will plan a visit again someday.”

“Photos don't do justice to this place. It's a beautiful cottage with a stunning view. The timber structures, long windows, the bedrooms with skylights, and the living room split over three levels, are a few of the many interesting elements. Windows in every room look out on the surrounding gardens and the valley. It is evident that the house is built with much thought and imagination. A rare find! A delight especially for architect and interior designer travellers! A perfect place to go to in a large group. There are treks and a few board games and books to keep you busy. It's the place to be if you want to spend a peaceful time away from the city and especially if you're a photography enthusiast. There is such an abundance of natural light in the house that we don't require lights until sunset. The staff is really sweet and a lot of the vegetables are grown there itself. I would definitely recommend this place for 'away from city' time, if you like travelling in a group.”

STUNNING. - The COTTAGE! I am out of words to describe this incredible cottage. One of the best I have ever been to around the globe. It is so thoughtfully designed. Incredible. - Full marks to the staff, extremely warm, welcoming and humble. Superb food as well.”
