Bara Bungalow, Gethia, Nainital has a rich historical foundation and various legends have contributed to making it famous. A quaint little cottage that has been renovated into a living space, Bara Bungalow truly is a home away from home.

Every old house comes soaked in myth. So a century-old home has its fair share. In the 1890s, the beautiful wife of a British army officer fell in love with the village of Gethia and decided to put out roots. The entire hillside belonged to her, and she chose the best spot to site her house. This Nainital resort is famous today as Bara Bungalow.

A retinue served her well. She was a statuesque woman who wore breeches, rode horses and was never seen in public without her double-barreled gun. The locals – in awe – dared not cross her line of vision. After her demise in the 1940s, she left the house to her faithful retainer whose descendants sold the house in 1999.
