“Red Apples, Red House and Rain...”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

There's a red house over yonder, that's where my baby stays.
There's a red house over yonder, baby, that's where my baby stays.
Well, I ain't been home to see my baby in about ninety nine and one half days,
'bout time I see her.

True to Hendrix lyrics...Yes its about time you see this.

Location, Location and Location....Its perfect..top of the hill yet accessible by auto/taxi.
Although, eventually you will have to climb 40 steps :-)

Rooms are big and spacious.
All rooms have good view of snow capped mountains

Cable DTH TV is nice.
WI-FI is a bit flaky at times.

Bathroom was clean, although they need to clear the clogged showerhead
Jumbo Geyser in the bathroom, so you won't get out of hot water.

Food was good. Coffee, Tea and Stuffed Omelets were nice. paranthas were doughy though :-(
Yogi was a good host and eventually became a friend.

The inn is surrounded by apple orchards and overlooks the lovely waters of Manalsu river.

Also there are small nice pathways around wanting to be discovered.

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time for this review.

We'd like to also share that we've changed the composition of our parathas to make them delectably sinful.

Hope we see you folks again soon!...the 1st round of parathas is on us :o)
Best always,

First thing you notice as you approach RedHouse Rooms and Cafe is that this place is right in the heart of the small town atop a small hill nestled amidst apple orchards and great views of the river Beas, the Deodar forests and is surrounded by mountain peaks on all sides ( some of them being snow capped). The small unassuming RedHouse Cafe sign board says sit, surf, laze, lay, eat, play, read, drink, sing, think, dance or dream..
The people managing the place are welcoming, very hospitable and always happy to help you around. Huge clean rooms with equally huge windows gives you the feeling of lots of space and a complete getaway. Some rooms have windows on 3 sides and an attached small kitchenette ideal for those looong stays.

RedHouse cafe serves lip smacking food all day long with fresh seasonal supplies plucked straight from the kitchen garden and neighborhood farms. On request you could get lucky with off the menu local specialties such as Siddu which is kinda like a steamed or pan tossed whole wheatflour muffin stuffed with walnut and poppy seed paste and to be dipped in ghee ( clarified butter).. yummmm!!

There's free to use in house Library, WiFi, Telescope, Computer printout's, Music collection, Guitars and Board games. Most evening's have live jamming sessions around the bonfire with nice conversations that go on till late. Saturday evenings the bonfire starts as early as 6.30 pm.

The most difficult part about being at RedHouse is leaving from there.. sigh!

Redhouse is perched above a gorgeous stream that fills the air with music at all times of the day. There are beautiful views both from the window, and the balcony.

The food and the coffee is delicious. I still think of their Didi's Sandwich. Yum!

The inn-keeper, Raj, is great to talk to, and makes you feel completely at home. I was in love with the music he played on his system throughout the day.

Oh, talking of music... there's often a bonfire at night, which is the ideal place for you to pull out your guitar and get singing!

I highly recommend Redhouse to anybody travelling to Manali, who'd like to stay in a place surrounded by breathtaking beauty, and managed by people who become friends, even before you know it. :)

Room Tip: The 2nd floor room has the best views.

We were so glad to find this place. We spent more than a week there and will certainly go back when we are next in India. Raj the owner is a great guy (and now a great friend). The rooms, food and price are fantastic as are many other things which you will discover if you stay there! Oh and I was even given a guitar to practice with! If you are in Manali and what to meet some lovely people and stay in a very comfortable place in a great location then the Red Guest House is the place to go to. Oh.....one more thing I forgot to mention......I was so happy staying there I proposed to my girlfriend in the bedroom!!!!! And yes she said "yes" !!! :)

The redhouse cafe is such chill and relaxing place to stay! If you are looking for a spot that is also surrounded by nature and hosted by kind people than this is where you want to be. The owner Raj is a great guy who will make you feel at home straight away. If you are in luck, the travelers and the guys from the Redhouse will play music at night around a campfire. Great experience! So, when you travel to Manali, it's not complete until you pay the Redhouse a visit:)

My experience at redhouse was incredible. The location gives you the feeling of a countryside house, and has privileged views over snow painted mountains.

Food is also amazing, and the people there made me experience the Indian hospitality at it's best.

Danyavad!
