Every old house come soaked in myth. So is this century old house which 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.
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.

The Goat Shed
It was originally where the goats were tied – an adjunct to the main house to keep them safe from the panther. The name’s the same, but the space has been transformed into a warm glowing suite, allowing in pouring sun, looking on to greenery everywhere.
The Olive Room
This room gets its name from an olive tree brought as a sapling from Italy. A cozy double room with a pristine white bathroom, and mother of pearl lights, and the shimmer and splash of water outside.
The Oak Suite
A luxurious suite, with a private lawn and a bright sun-room, a happy family place.
Lie on the bed and watch the sun set or the twinkling lights of the Jeolikot valley. Bathe in the old stone-walled bathroom or walk down the private steps to the path leading to Land’s End. Perhaps the best sited suite in the lodge.
The Study Room
Originally planned as a study, this quaint room has an old cottage charm, with a fireplace and a private sit-out that has a scintillating view of the valley. A lovely all-stone bathroom with a fig tree in it and glass walls gives the feeling of being out in the open. Just the room for a happy couple.
The Deodar Suite
A capacious suite with a bedroom, a sitting room, a sprawling bathroom overlooking the Bhumiadar valley, and a gorgeous sun-kissed loft. Outside the windows of the sitting room stands the 200-year-old deodar.
The Willow Suite
Running a span from the heart of the house to its outer edge. Its bedroom overlooks the Olive Court and The Deck while the sitting room provides a grandstand view of the Bhumiadar valley. A small, cosy sleeping loft, accommodates two children, while a private balcony offers sun and breeze. Perfect for a family of two or four.
The first lived-in room in the house, all wood, with royal beds. A huge, stunning loft with stand-up windows with a view of Nainital and The Deck. Lie in the tub in the finest bathroom in the house and overlook the Jeolikot valley.
