Head out on a trail with your pet during your stay at SaffronStays Elysian

Try this pet-friendly villa in Dehradun if you’re looking for a peaceful staycation. Sitting on the outskirts of the city, you and your pet can enjoy hours of quiet solitude with only the chirping birds as your company. You’ll find comfort within the sleek interiors while your furry friend can curl up in the ample sunlight streaming in from the glass windows. If they need to stretch their limbs, the villa’s lawn has more than enough space for a quick sprint. 

Need a dose of adventure? Head out on one of the numerous trails and treks winding through the lush green hills with your pet. Sahastradhara Small Waterfall point, for example, is a super fun spot, and it’s only ten minutes away! Later you can always rest by a bonfire on the lawn, munch on barbecued veggies, and stargaze together. This is one of those Uttarakhand cottages where your holiday dreams come true!
