Offering the most stunning views and landscapes in the Himalayas - Magpie Retreat is better than the best boutique homestays in Bhimtal. It is located in a quaint and picturesque village of Bhimtal in Nainital district. A luxury homestay nestled within the mountain ranges of the lower Himalayan regions of Kumaon hills. Our boutique homestay in a paradise for nature lovers and those looking to travel away from the hustle and bustle of city life for some quiet time of unwinding in the mountains. You will wake up to clean crisp air, fresh mountain breeze that carries the scents and stories of mountains beyond and the lyrics of nature carefully crafted by the visiting unique variety of birds. A lake to behold and mountains behind us that beckon the explorer to go connect some with the forests ...Offering the most stunning views and landscapes in the Himalayas - Magpie Retreat is better than the best boutique homestays in Bhimtal.

A lake to behold and mountains behind us that beckon the explorer to go connect some with the forests that lie within. For the birding enthusiasts, there are ample birds that come to the property thanks to the watering holes made especially for them and fruit trees planted to give back to nature a bit. We are an eco-friendly homestay and take the utmost pride in living with minimal carbon footprint and in complete harmony with nature. We believe in green and in giving back to nature more than what we consume from it. Planting trees and protecting the environment is not an annual occurrence but a way of life with us and our people. We are proud to say that we are one of the selected boutique properties in the Nainital district that is constantly involved in activities that help us make our communities stronger at the grassroots levels and actively protect our environment and it’s wildlife.More
