The magical surroundings make up for the small rooms and the lack of luxury feel...the food is mouth watering, it shares the kitchen and dining room (really cosy) with the Jungle Lore birding lodge. All in all it is a great place to spend a weekend and to unwind in the lap of nature. One can view the corbett jungle...

We stayed here for 2 nights in September 2015... Rooms are little small but very neat, clean & comfortable... Food served was with local touch... Simple & tasty.. verandah offers good view... Only issue is no proper road... A narrow trail from village to this place which is uneven..

Got a chance to spend a night at Kafal House this month, the location, setup and ambience is fantastic. This is not a luxurious hotel but believe me you'll not need any of those hanky panky amenities. Put a chair on the porch and keep looking at the valley and the mountains you'll it. Though food was good but not...

We have visited kafal house in april 2015. It was pure birding trip and this place is well suited to all of us. Food was homelike but with very restrictive menu. Rooms were plain and clean. Bottomline - we were there for birds and there were birds everywhere. Early morning we travelled to vinayak and then cheer point for cheer...

While my first choice was to stay at the Jungle Lore Birding Lodge, due to shortage of rooms, we got a room at the Kaafal House. But I don't regret it one bit. The rooms are...

“1. Note that the Mobile Network will be available on an on/off basis so is the Mobile Internet. 2. The way to Rooms from Parking is Narrow and through fields so try to reach before the dark to avoid any troubles especially with kids. 3. Keep your doors closed at night as a lots of flies can enter your room and trouble you!”
