What is it all About?

A little charmer located in the midst of a dense oak forest in Bhimtal, Fredy’s Bungalow is a cosy British era property restored and maintained with the same old world class to provide you a unique yet comfortable sojourn. From here, you can enjoy panoramic views of the Bhimtal valley and beautiful Kumaon hills while listening to the sounds of Whistling Thrush or Spotted Owl and smelling the deodar and cypress trees. Observe the famous butterfly collection on the common area walls, sample the books at the small library or feel the warmth of a fire place on a cold night- it’s all there at the bungalow.

Things to Keep you Busy

A 20 minute walk through a 2 km trek down from Fredy’s Bundalow will take you to Sattal lake where you can enjoy boating and relax in the serene surroundings. A slightly longer walk will lead you to terraced fields laden with local fruits and vegetables and tiny hamlets. A big attraction here is the close by Butterfly museum maintained by Peter Smetacek, brother of Late Frederick Smetacek Jr, who previously owned this bungalow. You could also enjoy paragliding, bird watching, nature photography, history walk, jungle safari or even a visit to the markets in nearby Nainital.
