About Bara Bungalow Gethia, Nainital

Every old house comes soaked in myth. So a century-old home has its fair share. In the 1890s, the beautiful wife of a British army officer fell in love with the village of Gethia and decided to put out roots. The entire hillside belonged to her, and she chose the best spot to site her house. This is today Bara Bungalow.

A retinue served her well. She was a statuesque woman who wore breeches, rode horses and was never seen in public without her double-barreled gun. The locals – in awe – dared not cross her line of vision. After her demise in 1940s, she left the house to her faithful retainer whose descendants sold the house in 1999.

Legend envelops the place. It is said Gandhiji had tea here in 1936 while on his way to the Bhowali Sanatorium to see Kamala Nehru; and that the hunter-conservationist Jim Corbett was a friend of the lady of the house and often came visiting.

We have converted this charming cottage into a beautiful living space, a home away from home, for you. A place that has history woven into every tiny corner, a place that serves as a retreat from the humdrum of daily life. A place where you can relax and rejuvenate.
