La Villa Bethany
A restored century old English Cottage that offers breath-taking vistas of the Doon Valley and the twin town of Mussoorie with a backdrop of snow-peaked Himalaya in a serene and quiet environment.
Nestled in an acre of wooded area, La Villa Bethany, is an old English Cottage, located in the serene environs of Landour that has just been renovated and restored back to its original glory. Just as Landour is steeped in history, so does La Villa Bethany take you back in time to enjoy simple life. Being run as a boutique home-stay, each of its 7 tastefully done up rooms is a tribute to the founders of Landour. Capt. Young's Dining Hall and Mackinnon's study recreate the magic of the Colonial Era.
Away from the hectic life of the city, enjoy the bliss of doing - 'nothing'. If idyllic walks amidst a ridge of Deodar and Pines overlooking snow peaked mountains or curling up on a hammock with a book or spending long overdue 'family time' is your idea of holiday, La Villa Bethany beckons you....
