Nestled in the heart of Shimla yet away from the hustle bustle of the city, the press house has the grandeur and simplicity of a home away from home. Designed entirely out of up-cycled wood, the homestay is ideal for a family outing or a group of friends. The Press House offers not only comfy beds for 8 , two well-equipped kitchen, and bathrooms but also a breathtaking panorama of the majestic Himalayas. Pets are welcomed, too!

The space
Wifi + functional Kitchenette / upcycled wood furnishing / Amazing deck + Himalayan Vantage / Bonfire + Library + TV and a Game center /King size double beds + futons / 2km from Mall / Safe and Quite Neighbourhood / Pet friendly.

At the Press House BnB you will have private access to two bedrooms with two additional futons and a common living room. The space is suitable for 8 adults and 2-4 kids. Extra guests can be accommodated at an additional charge (please check listing details)

We offer a combination of studio/suite and a bedroom unit with attached separate kitchens and bathrooms, and an exclusive sitting area with a vantage, all done up in upcycled wood by me. Airy with plenty of sunlight, all the rooms have a king size double bed and a futon with enough space for extra bedding.

Enjoy a quite evening in the common living room fully equipped with a bespoke library, board games, and a play station. The living room opens up to a huge deck with a breathtaking panorama of the majestic Himalayas. A perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee on chilly winter mornings and a drink or two besides a bonfire and barbeque (don’t forget to give us a heads up to make arrangements). Our doors are open for your pets, too.

In case you are a smaller group of friends or family, do check out our separate studio and suite listings.

A foodie at heart with a knack for cooking, I am photography enthusiast who enjoys mounting biking and practice permaculture. Professionally, I am a social entrepreneur and have been associated in the development sector for the last 8 years. Prior to taking up the homestay project, I worked for a youth-led NGO, Swechha as the Business head of their fair trade arm. I continue to volunteer for various NGOs and WWF community activities in and around Shimla. A proud Cottonians who strives to be a good host, if you choose to visit us! That's all about me!! And, for Neha.. well she is the latest addition to my life and still figuring out what to write in her bio. In short.. an LSE graduate, environmentalist, and the force behind our library collection.
