I spent almost a month here, hiking to different villages and exploring this beautiful valley. Everybody at Saur Cottages was super friendly and I was lucky to be able to spend so much time there. The food and tea was also delicious! The room was comfortable as well. Thanks everyone at Saur Cottages!

Saur village was this tiny place tucked away for soul wanderers. It's intimate and far away from the world. Mud cottages, green fields, mountains, a few faraway abandoned huts, temples and a tiny village at a distance, winding paths which take you into the being of the forest....it all adds to the mystique. Just the kind of place i wanted to be in. We travelled in a group, a Capoeira workshop, so it was perfect for us. The stay at the cottages was insanely refreshing. The humble home cooked food is something which left us wanting more.. Must mention the excellent service by the staff there. The bonfire, the starry experience... Simply, a beautiful stay. Can't wait to go back.

Beautiful 4 room cottage with little or no connectivity, great food and absolute calm. A must visit if you are looking for a short break away from the city. The night sky is nothing like you would have ever seen. The services is great, rooms and toilets are clean and the evening bonfire makes the entire experience complete. String your hammock, get your favorite book and get lost here or take a small trek in the surrounding area for a unadulterated experience.

We were 2 families and stayed at DueNorth for 3 nights. The best part of this place is that is it extremely cut-off and there is simply no vehicular traffic. You are unlikely to hear more than 4-5 cars go by in a day or see anyone from outside the village. The road ends about a km or so after DueNorth and hence this place is so peaceful and quiet - absolutely no tourists at all. Not even the day-visit variety. This restored property has 2 parts - the old house with a few rooms and 2-3 new rooms. We stayed in the new ones and that was a big mistake. The rooms are tiny, not small. And the washroom was almost falling apart. The sink was about to fall down, the cistern has hanging by a few hinges and the mirror was resting uneasily on a few screws. Every bath led to water getting clogged in the drain and the whole bathroom getting flooded. Moreover, the cleaning every day was appalling. Someone would come and use a broom to rake up a whirl of dust. I have no problem at all with basic places and have stayed in many that have even lesser. However, hygiene is a different thing altogether. This was a common theme throughout. We went to the kitchen very often (there is on person taking care of everything at the property and he usually hangs out in the kitchen) and the level of cleanliness/hygiene was simply sub-par. For instance, i happened to open the windows of our room and was hit by dust, cobwebs and dead insects lining the window frame. Its a great place if you want to be cut off from the rest of the world, enjoy the silence and peace, experience a typical village home (which is what this restored property is), and eat tasty, locally grown food. Some of the walks are really nice, from simple ones to a strenuous one. We really loved our stay but I would not go back.

Thanks for your review and feedback. If we're not mistaken, you stayed with us over a year ago in early October 2015. In the last year we have worked hard to address the issues, around cleanliness and maintenance, that you mention in your review and strengthened our on ground team. Appreciate your objective review of your stay and glad you enjoyed the quiet at Saur. It would be great if you'd consider returning at some point to see the improvement we've made.

Coupla hours away from D'dun and a sub 8 hour drive from Delhi, Saur Cottages turned out to be quite the hidden gem. We discovered some amazing trails dotted with a rivulet, ate some incredible fresh food cooked (by their staff) with veggies freshly plucked from their very own garden, and absolutely adored the peace and tranquility- which was conducive to some great conversation. Great cottages- after all the hikes and the food, we slept like babies- only to be woken up to freshly cooked eggs! Staff was fantastic- they displayed the highest standards of hospitality! All in all, a great eco-tourism retreat.

Stay in a restored pahari (traditional mountain-style) home high in the mountains of Tehri, surrounded by terraced fields, small streams, and views of pine-covered mountains. Around 3 hours drive from Dehradun, Saur is a village - it's gorgeous, but remote and rustic in the truest sense of the words. Go here if you love being in the midst of nature, but don't go here if you need the trappings of city life to enjoy your vacation. You'll stay in a traditional mud and wood structure that is comfortable, clean, and charming, but by no means is it "lavish". Food is wholesome, simple and oh so good - Indian curries, rice, roti and dal is what you'll get. There is no wifi and no tv. When it rains (and it pours), there may be long power cuts. But that's where the charm lies - to watch lightening slash the sky, to see millions of stars, to hear the thundering rain lash the valley and breathe clean mountain air. Simple charms missing in city life. We went on long hikes in the mountains, sat on terraced fields amidst the pines, dipped our feet in icy streams, and had more goats than humans for company. Plenty of bird and animal life around. This is a village with no shops or restaurants so take what you'll need. Look out onto valleys, be woken by the sound of birds and cattle, and savour the joy of not seeing more than a handful of humans and cars during your stay. The road leading to Saur is surprisingly good (it's fairly new), and as such it is still an untouched location, so for those who want to truly get away, it's a better idea to go here than crowded Mussoorie and the like.

An amazing place with a view to match. You can go for treks or just sit around in the sun reading with no one around to bother you. Was amazed to see so many different species of birds, if you're lucky you can spot an animal bounding up a hill side oh and the goats are very friendly! The food was simple and tasty, there are no shops in the village so carry everything you think you'd need. Would definitely recommend the place to people who want to get away from the city and go somewhere without tourists or any sort of commercialization. Also getting there is pretty easy from Delhi.

An ideal place in a remote village amidst nature and away from the hustle & bustle of city life is what I can say about this unique destination. One can just unwind..be it the early morning trekking around the cottage or having a stroll in the nearby fields. The chirping sounds of variety of birds early in the morning and an air of calmness gives you a heavenly feeling. Friendly staff to take care of all your needs and offering sumptuous food. If you are looking for a mall road or a shopping paradise or a cyber cafe ......this is not the place for you. If not, just go and live to experience...

Being a wildlife buff, I specially liked saur village for the abundant birdlife and wildlife it has to offer. I spotted atleast 15 different bird species from the window of my cottage alone. Other then that, its a great place if you just want to chill and do nothing. Much much better then overcrowded hill stations of India. Its not a hill station, its a experience . You wont find herd of tourist flocking this place, ugly structures being erected every where. Its utarakhand in its true form. Strongly recommended for avid nature buffs.
