History of our Home-away-from- Home in Nainital
Every old house comes soaked in myth. So a century old house had its fair share. In the 1890s the beautiful wife of a British army officer fell in love with the area and decided to put out roots. The entire hillside belonged to her. She chose the best spot to site her house – which is today Two Chimneys.
A retinue served her well. She was a statuesque woman, 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.
When she died in the1940s, she left the house to her faithful retainer. It was from his descendants that we got the house.
Legend envelops the place. It is said Gandhiji had tea here in 1936 on his way to the Bhowali sanatorium to see Kamala Nehru; and Jim Corbett was a friend of the lady of the house and often came visiting.
We have converted the dainty cottage into a beautiful living space, a home away from home for you. Treat it as a bed & breakfast or a lodge where you can spend a few days de-stressing. We are in Nainital, but comfortably away from the clutter.
