Built in the late 1950’s, the house belonged to Gellong Netuk Lama, an executive counselor to the then Chogyal (Monarch). Tibet Road, as the name suggests was the principal route for travellers and traders heading up to Tibet. Most of the commuters were silk traders involved in the historic Silk Route Trade. This Heritage House began offering hospitality and provided a transit point for these travellers. That marked the beginning.

Even with the inevitable changes in geography, history and politics, the Heritage House still stands today as a home-stay for those seeking the traditional hospitality with an opulent accommodation and food.
