We have named this room because of its enormous dormer window that looks out into the open skies and tree tops. It is on the first floor and has twin beds, a desk, wardrobe, full length mirror, and attached bathroom with WC and rain shower. It also has tea and coffee making facilities. Paintings done by tribal artists, and nature studies done by Sheema’s father, adorn the walls. This room is suited for those who want more privacy, since it is the exclusive accommodation on the top floor. It faces the expansive Salban library, and would be ideal for writers and book lovers.
Situated on the ground floor, it has a private veranda overlooking the Sal forest and the kitchen garden. This room has an antique queen bed, a desk and wardrobe. It showcases our collection of tiger paintings from all over India. The attached bathroom has a transparent portion in the roof that allows the light to stream in. Like upstairs, it has a WC and rain shower, as well as tea and coffee making facilities. This is the larger of the two bedrooms and makes an ideal family room, since we can accommodate extra beds for children. At the same time, it is good for elderly guests who do not want to climb the stairs.
Although our rooms ideally accommodate two persons each, they are very spacious and we can put in an extra bed for a third person. The rooms have coolers and no AC, since we want to be as eco-friendly as possible. The thick walls and stone floors keep the interiors very cool in summer, and warm in winter. Guests have complete access to the other spaces in the house, such as the living room, kitchen, library and veranda.
