Cabin 1

 

James with the help of Valariena, built Cabin 1 in 2011 before we had any electricity on the property, so all with hand saw and tools.  It is set off on its own with a double bed on the main level and a single mattress in the loft.

Ideal for a family and children – if there are 2 small children we can make it for 2 to sleep in the loft.

It has an attached bathroom and toilet; we still encourage a bucket bath to conserve water.  You also can go to the Shared Solar Shower room for a nice shower.

 Rs. 2450. for double occupancy.   Extra Person: Rs. 380. inclusive of Taxes and Complementary, if taken before 8:30am

Children who are under 5 and use same bed as parents (no extra charge).

 ** Complementary breakfast is given before 8:30am.  If you want to laze around and have a late breakfast it will cost each person 200./person for that service.

 

Cabin 2

 

Built by James with the help of Pynskem, who often wondered about the construction methods, when it was finished decided one day he might build one for himself.

It is in the main compound in line with the ‘Twin Cabin’, built with an attic dormer giving a cozy upstairs to sleep in or just laze the afternoon away and read a book.  It has a double bed down and up.  Giving room for a small family with 2 or 3 kids.

It has an attached bathroom and toilet; we still encourage a bucket bath to conserve water.  You also can go to the Shared Solar Shower room for a nice shower.

Twin Cabins Room 1 and 2

 

Built by James with help of Pynskhem, using a Canadian Barn roof style.  These are smaller rooms that look exactly the same thus, the name Twin.  They are in line with Cabin 2 and have a main entrance with each room opposite to the other.  Toilet and sink are separate for each room within the main entrance.

The rooms are smaller but still have a double bed on the main floor, with a  single bed in the loft.
