“It was great to visit uncle (Ashwani) and aunty home in Cheog who make a great couple and a wonderful host. The view from the window can not be explained in words and we were lucky enough to witness snow during our stay which made the view even better. The house is a modern one with amenities like heated floor in the rooms and washrooms. They offered us lip smacking hot food including some of the local himachali dishes prepared by aunty. The best part of the stay was the barbecue arrangement by uncle on the open terrace with great lighting and snow on the turf (the terrace has turf). I would definitely recommend this place to families looking for some relaxing time away from the hustle bustle of cities and myself look forward to visiting them again.”
Rarely do you find a retreat that is embodied by the essence of nature, taking your mind off everything that is apparent. In a place like this, the chirping of birds, wind blowing in the trees and star-studded sky put forth an experience which is unforgettable. The property is built for relaxation, and is suitable for those who want to get away from the city chaos. It is a perfect blend of village life, apple trees .

“We loved our stay at the property. Avinash is an amazing host who's a good example of a Superhost in Airbnb's global community. Right from the check-in to check-out, Vikas, the manager, was available to help us with anything we needed. The cottages are in a very remote location, far from the crowd, literally in the middle of the forest, but is best for people who're looking for solace from their day to day jobs and businesses. The property is beautiful with greenery, birds chirping during the day and with a picturesque view. The cottages are uniquely built with wood and stones and with very less use of cement and other stuff, mentioning this because we are very particular about having a stay which is different than usual! Now, the food was average and not as per our expectation but the good behavior of the staff and their effort to arrange for everything that we asked for during our stay, in-house and from the nearby market, specially staff member Deepak, filled that empty block and kept us happy during our vacation. From their attitude one can figure out how passionate they're about hosting and to ensure the guests are having a pleasant stay. Would recommend this property to our friends, family and to everyone who's reading this review.”
The Living Woods- Rich Red Wooden Bide This is a retreat in the middle of an apple orchard, 25 km beyond Shimla. Our cottage and Villa are newly built in Cheog, Himachal. It's a perfect blend of village life, apple trees, the whistling pines. The only sound one could hear is of the chirping of birds, an occasional vehicle & barking of some one and a half dogs. Summers are pleasant though winters are cold. It can snow anytime from Mid December- March. Snowfall can be mild to heavy.
“We had booked Manoj's place for a couple of nights around the new year's time following our spontaneous plan to be outside our home town. Though it was last minute, we were able to quickly shortlist Manoj's place based on photos and reviews, and also the fact that it is an isolated place surrounded by nature. And I can say confidently that it turned out to be much better than expected. Even before we arrived, Manoj sir were very helpful and transparent in sharing all the relevant details about the place, roads, etc. Upon arrival we were just mesmerized by the beauty of the place. The beautiful cottages are built surrounded by apple orchard, which was in the pruning season at the time we were there. The cottages are spacious and interiors are modern with all necessary amneties - we did not have a single problem during our stay. We got to relish home food and were really humbled by the hospitality of entire Manoj's family. During new year's eve, we had a fun barbeque and bonfire session, and welcomed new year in the chilling night, content with the setting we were in and with the comfy warm cottages awaiting us when we were ready to rest. All in all it turned out to be a wonderful spontaneous trip, thanks to the place where we stayed, and the fact that on our last day of return, we got to witness year's first snowfall. :) Living woods is highly recommended in case you are looking to get away from city life and be amidst nature. Manoj sir and his family run the place entirely on their own, and with no stones unturned in the quality of service they provide. I was happy I spent my new year at Living Woods, and would love to visit again, possibly during the blossom season when the orchard is flourishing green!”
