Luxury Farm Stay in Tapovan, Dharamshala.

Set in a forested neighborhood of Dharamshala, The Owl's Nest™ is a chic cottage with all the modern amenities and lots of open spaces. Ideally suited for small families and groups of friends traveling together. Set on a 1-acre farm, this charming cottage boasts of classy yet minimalist interiors and plenty of natural light all day long. The property comes to life every morning with hundreds of bird sounds, and the beautiful starlit sky at night.

The space
I would encourage guests to take a few minutes and read the detailed description and some guest's reviews of my farm stay before booking.

A completely private farm cottage stay experience in Dharamshala, close to all tourist spots yet tucked away in absolute serenity. Here the only sounds you will hear are bird sounds. This is a readers' and bird watchers' paradise.

The small contemporary and vernacular fusion cottage stands on an acre of land surrounded by forests. Guests staying at the farm have the entire place to themselves giving them unrestricted privacy and serenity. The caretakers stay at the gatehouse and are just a call away to help guests with anything they need.

Besides the cozy dining area, sunny and beautiful living area with a fireplace, bright sunroom with French windows, the guests have access to the several sitting areas outdoors beside the fish pond, and more.

The main bedroom suite has a king-size bed and closets and an attached bath. This bedroom suite also has a large study with French windows that overlook the front garden and the forest. This room also has a second sleeping area with a single bed in the loft.

The 2nd room is a large loft space above the living room and has a king-size bed, sitting area & yoga area.

There are two bathrooms. One is attached to the main bedroom suite and the 2nd bathroom is not inside the cottage. The 2nd bathroom is located outside, next to the BBQ area. Both bathrooms have running hot and cold water and showers.

MIND CAVE - Attached to the main bedroom suite is a loft that we call the "Mind Cave". It's a small cozy loft space ideal for those who would like to disconnect from every distraction and spend some time meditating or reading or practicing mindfulness.

We have a Broadband high-speed WiFi connection that covers the entire cottage and most garden areas.

>>>>>>DAILY CLEANING AND LINEN<<<<<<

~ Fresh Linen is provided at the time of check-in and then changed after every 3 days for long-stay guests.
~ The cottage is cleaned and serviced once every morning after breakfast, by the farm staff who stay at the outhouse on the property. Note - Cleaning the cottage, dishes, and other items multiple times a day will not be possible.

>>>>>>FOOD OPTIONS AT THE FARM<<<<<<

A) The kitchen is fully equipped so guests can cook for themselves. The care takers will help get ingredients. Just provide them with a list of things you need and cash. The caretakers will clean the kitchen once every morning.

B) Guests can ask staff to serve COMPLIMENTARY breakfast and Dinner. They prepare simple homemade Indian VEGETARIAN food at the farm kitchen and bring it to the cottage. We don't have a menu, and the days breakfast and dinner options depend on what we've harvested recently from our farm.

Note - We don't serve lunch, snacks, teas or coffees etc. during the day. Ours is a fully functional farm and the caretakers are busy working with plants during the day. We request guests to help themselves in the cottage kitchen for such things.

C) Guests can order via Zomato, Swiggy or through local eateries that deliver to the farm.

Remember to take nothing but memories and leave nothing behind but footprints :-)

IMPORTANT NOTES -

1) STRICTLY NO STAGS ALLOWED
2) Basic Driver accommodation available on the farm. If driver accommodation is required, please let us know in advance so we can make arrangements accordingly.
3) Outsiders and Visitors are strictly not allowed. Only guests booked on Airbnb have access to the farm and the cottage.
4) This is a cottage on a farm, in a village setting. We do not allow loud music or loud noises after sunset. We have village neighbors and we request our guests to maintain the peace and serenity of the farm and its surroundings.

Simple, sustainable, uncluttered and connected with nature and community. Wishing Safe Travels to All :-) Peace & Love! Honey
