Greetings from the Cedar Hill Lodge

Greetings from the Himalayas!


Upon a quaint hilltop Cedar Hill is our Bed and Breakfast/Homestay property (3Kms. before Kufri). Like all B&B owners we take pleasure and honour in servicing fellow travellers from India and abroad.

A 25 minute drive from Shimla town; 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.


Our New (3) Bedroom Cottage with (2) Bathrooms and a Kitchen now avaliable.




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 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 babies or aged 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. 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.


Cedar Hill provides all meals in our own home menu as well as a menu from a nearby restaurant (veg and non-veg meals). We offer candlelight dinners; heaters in winters, thermos tea/coffee for night, emergency lights, toiletries and fresh linen in rooms. We provide travel assistance, internet access, taxi bookings, and holiday packages for other areas in Himachal Pradesh also.

Cedar Hill Lodge rests on a hilltop at 8200 ft. & is situated in the heart of the Indian Himalayas — 12 Kms. of a picturesque drive from the packed hill station Shimla. Cedar Hill Lodge (an apple orchard once) resides in a tiny village named ‘Chharabra’ which is mostly a pit stop for foodies heading towards the popular sightseeing option of Kufri. The hillside provides a pleasant mix blended with a rural, rustic charm with an enchanting view of the ‘North-Western Himalayas’ at the background.
