The space
Escape from the grind of daily life, relax and unwind at the Lakeside Homestay @ Krishnakunj in Bhimtal, Uttarakhand. The cottage is part of an ancestral house overlooking the lake, bang in the heart of Bhimtal town. We, your hosts, Hari and Kumkum, hail from Kumaon. Living in the salubrious climate we procure organic vegetables and grow greens we endeavour to live LIFE WITHOUT MEDICINES and propagate the same. Consequently, our guests not only come here to enjoy the hills but return richer in experience to lead a healthy life style.

Surrounded by mango, leetchi, walnut, guava, and plum trees - the cottage is a favourite haunt of myriad birds. Wake up each morning to spy the red billed Blue Magpie, the purple Sunbird or the great tit as you sip your morning tea. Sit under the leetchi tree and read, count the boats on the lake or simply watch the clouds roll by. The kids can read books from the library or potter about the land and try their hand at digging out onions or cutting salad leaves for dinner.

The guest house itself is a private apartment with a large bedroom; a bright lounge space; an attached bathroom with both western and indian style toilets; extra bedding, a small library, and lockable storage containers for luggage.
