Seating Living Room Fredy's Bungalow

Living Room

Cool off at our lounge and experience the 300-year-old architecture. The large and airy living room boasts large windows, a two-story wooden ceiling, and a fireplace with a Franklin stove. An elegant wooden staircase in the center of the living room leads up to the bedrooms. There is a cozy step-down den to satisfy young travelers with a number of board games and children’s books.

The renowned butterfly collection adorns many walls of the common areas. Much of the furniture is old and has been proudly restored and re-used. Many of the artifacts are antique and each has a story to tell.

The local cuisine in this region is the distinct Kumaoni food which is mildly spiced, highly nutritious, and very appealing to the palate. At Fredy’s Bungalow, you will sample some popular mouth-watering recipes of this cuisine, prepared using fresh ingredients. Besides Kumaoni food, a wide selection of regular Indian and Continental dishes are served.

Lush greenery outdoors of Fredy's Bungalow

Located in the midst of acres of dense oak forest, this is a peaceful haven where only the sounds of nature break the silence: the wake-up song of the resident Whistling Thrush, the sharp call of a Barking Deer in the distance; the hoot of a Spotted Owl signaling dusk.

This part of the Kumaon Lake Region, home to a large variety of flora, fauna, and aquatic life, has always attracted bird-watchers, butterfly collectors, and nature lovers as well as writers in search of solitude and city-dwellers seeking to renew their spirits.
