It’s far away from the maddening crowd of a popular hill station and pushed away somewhere in a quaint little village called Satkhol is a gorgeous 04-Bedroom Farmstay aptly called “Hushstay x Woodhouse”. 

As you walk towards the house through a blissful setting consisting of peach, plum and apricot fruit garden, it almost feels as if you are leaving behind what’s real and stepping into a Claude Monet painting(capture reality and analyse the ever-changing nature of light and colour.) like : 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.  

The stay

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 Rooms

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 02 Bedroom Unit called Hushstay x Meraki (has to be booked separately) which is apt for smaller groups of up to 04 guests or can be used for additional rooms if you are coming in a bigger group.
