The former abode of the British hunter, conservationist, naturalist and author - Jim Corbett is called Gurney House. The charming colonial cottage, located near the Nainital Lake, has a tiny museum with the achievements and life story of Jim Corbett. A quaint little nursery is also housed in the premises with a variety of shrubberies and plants. Even though the Gurney House is a private residence, tourists are welcome to visit by prior permission. The lovely owners also give a complimentary house tour to the Corbett lovers.
Located in the picturesque Ayarpatta hill slopes, the Gurney House continues to maintain its colonial charm and vintage aura. Corbett's writing comes alive here, in the house hiding his possessions and furniture. The Gurney House was sold to Mr Sharda Prasad Varma in 194 by Jim Corbett's sister. It is currently owned by Mr Varma's grandaughter Nilanjana Dalmia.
