A Peaceful – Relaxing – Photogenic – Retreat surrounded by a Cedar Forest Sanctuary is the setting of our tiny retreat with a mesmerizing view of the Himalayas.
The lodge sits perched on a hilltop 8200 ft. (an old Apple orchard once) lying in the lap of the Middle Himalayas. The lodge is ideal for hikers, photographers, writers – for people looking to seep in nature or just fill the body, mind and soul with a positive energy through meditation, yoga or simply just being yourself. Close to Shimla (25 min.), yet far away from the traffic and noise of our modern lives. The village is ideal for couples, nature lovers, bird watchers, adventure enthusiasts – for guests looking for nature and time to self. For long stays the lodge is ideal except the winters (Jan-Feb) our cold and not recommended for older guests.
Cedar Hill Lodge is registered under the ‘Himachal Homestay Tourism’ initiative provided by the state to provide a genuine experience to travelers: a hygienic, comfortable stay with Homestay owners (many) like me who can provide you with an authentic experience based on your requirements for a holiday.
All Family Suites or Individual Rooms have individual access so guest privacy is not affected.
Guests are welcome to join us for early morning walks and meditation free of charge. If required we provide the assistance of basic Yoga instructors at a charge.
For longer stays or a group looking for Yoga and Meditation retreat experience, please do contact us to make the necessary arrangements from Shimla. We would be elated to be a part of this experience.
