THE TWO CHIMNEYS,GETHIA
A Cosy old House soaked in myth.
Two chimneys build in 1890 by the lovely wife of a British Army officer, who fell I love with the village of Gethia.
The delightful cottage has a beautiful living space, a home away from home. Somewhat a cosy bed & breakfast or a lodge where one can spend a few days de-stressing. Well situated near Nainital, but comfortably away from the clutter.
The house has numerous little corners where guests can rejuvenate mind and soul.
The eleven beautifully-crafted and elegantly-furnished guest rooms at Two Chimneys overlooking the serene valley and lush landscape of the Kumaon. Each room is distinct in character and style, and exhibits the history of this century-old house.The rooms come with a seating area. Every room also features a private bathroom with all modern amenities.
How to Get There
The drive takes between 6 to7 hrs from Delhi, so an early start is recommended.
There are 2 routes:
A. Delhi – Hapur (take the bypass here) – GarhMukteshwar – Gajurala – Moradabad bypass – (this is our preferred route) – turn left after the bypass (to catch the Jim Corbett park route) then cross Tanda, Do Raha – Bazpur-Kaladungi- Haldwani, Jewlikote and to Gethia. Check in time is 2 p.m, pl let us know if you are delayed.
B. From the Moradabad bypass continue to Rampur turn left here via Bilaspur, Rudrapur, Haldwani, Kathgodam and up to Gethia via Jeolikote.
– Take Note of the `Pilot Baba Ashram’ – a landmark most locals are familiar with, that is visible from Jealikote. Two Chimneys is a couple of km ahead.
Buses from all parts of North India come to Haldwani. Apart from the State transport buses, private operator – Heena Travels operates overnight air conditioned buses that start from Connaught Place straight to Nainital. Private taxis will bring you from there to Two Chimneys.
Ranikhet Express starts from Old Delhi Railway station at around 10.30 p.m and reaches Kathgodam (last station).by 5 a.m. It is a comfortable overnight journey but you need to book well intime to get confirmed air conditioned births. Taxis will come up to Gethia readily.
