Peak-a-View: Your Next Getaway in These Mountain View Villas

If you’re anything like me, your daily grind probably involves a lot of screens, schedules, and “Sorry, I can’t, I’m swamped.” But every now and then, a part of us yearns for an escape, a pause button on the relentless fast-forward of life. What if I told you there are some places where the only deadlines are the sunsets, and your biggest meeting is with the horizon? That’s right, I’m talking about the magic of retreating to these mountain view villas.

These aren’t just holiday spots; they’re cocoons where the only thing towering over you is the majestic beauty of nature. With SaffronStays’ collection of some of the best mountain view villas, you’re not just booking a stay; you’re unlocking the door to a world where the mountains makes you home, and the skies paint new masterpieces every evening. A journey where every day is a breath of fresh air, literally and metaphorically.

A Trilogy of Charms: SaffronStays Edelweiss Estate, Ranikhet

Ever felt like escaping to a place so quiet, the rest of the world can’t reach you? Where you can turn off your phone and just watch the sky, undisturbed? Yes, that. When the humdrum of city life becomes too loud to bear, come here. Here, the villas aren’t just pet-friendly; they’re practically begging your furry friends to come and chase their tails in delight, with two 3-bedroom villas (check, Edelweiss Estate: Bluebell House & Edelweiss Estate: Primrose House) and a suite that’s perfect for couples (Check: Edelweiss Estate: Amore). It’s like choosing your own adventure in the Himalayas, except the dragons are friendly, and the treasure is the view – the gorgeous Nanda Devi and Trishul peaks of the Himalayas.

Throughout the year, this beautiful home dances to the rhythm of the seasons. Winter brings a snowfall so magical, you’d half expect to see a snowman winking at you. Spring and summer paint the surroundings with vibrant colors, a sight so beautiful it could make a grown man weep (or at least pretend he’s got something in his eye). And then there’s autumn, wrapping everything in golden hues, making every leaf look like it’s been dipped in honey. Oh, and did I tell, you can also book both villas and the suite for your big corporate retreat!

The Himalayan Hug: SaffronStays The Clairmont Cottage, Dhanachuli

View from The Clairmont Cottage | Mountain View Villas

Just a stone’s throw (if you could throw a stone through a picturesque 10-minute drive!) from the elusive charms of Mukteshwar, The Clairmont Cottage in Dhanachuli offers the kind of peace usually reserved for monks and hermits – but with WiFi! You wouldn’t need it though – except, maybe to post your picture perfect vacation on the gram! It’s positioned perfectly, ‘close enough to civilization to not feel lost, but far enough to forget its noise.’ I would say this home is nestled in the mountains, but that would be an understatement. This home is cradled by them like a mother holds her child. The gazebo is the highlight, though! This home is pet friendly, has food that will have you licking your finger and views that will make you wish you never leave.

Living here, even for just a few days, feels like being held in the arms of the mountains—a gentle reminder of the majestic calm and profound beauty that the world holds, far away from the clamour of city life. Open the curtains not just to let the lights in but to see live picture frames of the most beautiful thing the world has to offer – nature. Not to forget, Mukteshwar is just minutes from this place. It’s like the best of both worlds are given the shape of this beautiful cottage.

A Sky-high Experience: SaffronStays Zephyr by Naukuchiatal

Zephyr by Naukuchiatal isn’t just about the stay; it’s about staging your own grand performance with the Himalayas as your backdrop. Picture this: a do-it-yourself bonfire where you’re the director, the crackling flames are your stars, and the panoramic mountain vistas provide a scene-stealing performance that no Broadway show could match.

Then there’s Naukuchiatal, a mere hop away, acting as the perfect set for serene lake scenes, boating adventures or the starting point for your own aerial stunts. Yes, paragliding here offers plot twists that thrill as you soar, with the landscape rolling out beneath you like the world’s most majestic carpet. Imagine the wind as your co-star, lifting you to heights where the views are not just seen but felt. Just a little distance from this lake is Bhimtal. Do not forget to explore that beautiful town while you’re here!

So, there you have it—our tour through three of our Kumaoni mountain view villas, where the only thing thicker than the walls is the air (thanks, altitude!). From Edelweiss Estate, with its mix-and-match charm, to The Clairmont Cottage, where peace and quiet have a summer home, and over to Zephyr by Naukuchiatal, where you’re literally on cloud nine, each place offers more than just a stunning view. They’re your base camps for adventure, sanctuaries for those much-needed digital detoxes, and front-row seats to nature’s greatest show. Pack your bags (and maybe a sweater; it gets nippy), and set your out-of-office. The mountains are calling, and they’ve got your reservation on hold.
