A ’boutique' village mud house painstakingly and beautifully restored with all modern amenities, the 4Rooms is for those who crave to be away from the hustle and bustle of tourism, yet not totally out of the way. Situated in the village, Gunehar, 2 KM from Bir and 4 KM from the busy, main tourist junction, 4Rooms is your home away from home, not an all-inclusive ‘hotel’. Our concept of alternative hospitality allows you to relax and rejuvenate. NOTE: the rooms don't have TVs or room service!

The space
The 70 year old merchant’s house is an oasis with 4 comfortable double rooms and a garden. It is set right in the middle of the non-touristic village, 1 minute from the quiet market place and 10 minutes walk from the river. There are excellent walks around and beyond the village, plus our highly praised restaurant and modern art gallery, the 4tables Cafe & Gallery is right down the street. Being close to the paragliding centre Bir-Billing, and with a number of sight-seeing attractions in the proximity, the 4Rooms makes for an excellent base for your activities without having to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the emerging and chaotic tourist infrastructure.

The 4Rooms is not run as a hotel or guest house but is your home away from home. It is your own private space to linger, enjoy and feel comfortable, your base from which to undertake activities, including those offered by us: art and cooking courses, guided walks etc..

The 4Rooms is a whole experience: waking up in the middle of a village in an aesthetically beautiful and comfortable, carefully restored mud house, walking around the village which is the venue of a contemporary arts event organised by us, having great fusion cuisine at the the 4tables Café & Gallery’ or a carefully prepared picnic at the riverside or during a trek, paragliding in nearby Bir-Billing, visiting local Buddhist and Hindu temples… or simply spending a laid back day on the terrace watching villagers walk by, writing those final notes you always wanted to finish.

Where you’ll be

Gunehar (Bir), Kangra Valley, Himachal Pradesh, India, India

Gunehar is predominantly a village of Gaddis and Bara Bhangalis, whose original homes are further in the interiors of the mountains, beyond the Dhauladhar Range. Since most of these people are semi-nomadic shepherds, and since the extremely cold winters cut off their villages from the Indian mainland for more than half a year, they have traditionally had winter dwellings on the southern slopes of the Himalaya such as Gunehar.
Today, this traditional way of living and trading is still quite intact in Gunehar. Most people still move between their original homes in the interiors and the Jandher, keeping old traditions (and the old routes) alive. Also, Gunehar still retains its old-time charm and especially its unique culture.
Gunehar can be the base for some great, other-worldly treks to the untouched Himalayan interiors.
Gunehar is also venue to our biannual contemporary arts event, ShopArt/ArtShop. Traces of our last exhibition (2013) can still be found all over the village, plus there is a gallery of this above the 4tables.

I run The 4tables Project, comprising of The 4rooms GH, The 4tables Cafe, a natural design and architecture studio and other local projects. All this is located in in the middle of pretty Gunehar, a non-touristy village close to, but away from Bir-Billing.
I want to share this 'space' with selected and curious people interested in meaningful and creative living.
The 4Rooms/4tables is managed by Suman and Sakina, who are extremely lovely and lovable hosts... and Suman is a wonderful chef of western-fusion cuisine.

During your stay

I like meeting like-minded people and me and my small team takes good care of our guests without being intrusive. We do everything ourselves and I myself take care of my guests, including introducing them to the village and surrounding, to our arts projects, as well as cooking and serving in the restaurant.

I also have a 10-year old child who loves having other children around. I feel children can learn a lot in places like these and my son is a great guide and companion.
