The location of the property is its USP. Amazing views of snow capped mountains bang opposite the property with paragliders completing the frame so perfectly! The peace with melodious birds chirping around while inhaling that fresh mountain air is unparalleled. Our room was basic yet v.spacious with amazing views & a connected front deck/common seating area to soak in the valley. The meadow & Khajjiar lake is walking distance from the property but I won’t advice anybody to visit in winters as the grass of the meadow is all brown & not that lush green as seen in pix on d net. U might get a different more beautiful white frame though, if u get lucky with snow, which we cudnt witness but again with snow comes other challenges of immobility. The caretaker Raju was of great help in

Dear 752arpitt, Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Glad to know that you liked the location, views and the fresh mountain air. I appreciate your feedback in terms of getting the mattresses changed. This was the first winter when we opened, typically we are closed during winter and moving forward we will be closed for the winter. Thrilled to know that you enjoyed Roger's company. I understand that the blowers can make the air dry, but they have proved to be much more effective in terms of heating the rooms. The option of oil heaters is there, and as per Raju that option was offered to you. Raju went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that extra blankets/comforters were provided to you. A bonfire for you was made available starting 4pm in the evening, going all through the late hours during your stay. It's just basic knowledge that in winters the meadow is not lush green, for that matter its not lush green anywhere in the winter time at this altitude. Raju informed that the reason you did not extend your stay was snow, despite a forecast of snow the day you were leaving. And for the record, there was heavy snow just the day you left. The primary reason/ essence for guests to visit Deodar Manor and that includes a vast majority of our repeat guests is the Mountains and it's certainly not to have a chat with me. I respect the privacy of my guests, and I don't like to be intrusive. You are here to enjoy the mountains, that is the essence for us. We can only do so much. Raju, who was your attendant and is like family to me, has vast knowledge in terms of what there is to do. While we are a homestay, it is not possible for me as the owner to always be present on the property. Our staff, Raju is thoroughly knowledgable about the local area and he is like family. I am sure that Raju would have gladly given you all the information that you needed. With warm regards, Hanut Bal

Deodar Manor is a perfect property to stay if you are visiting Dalhousie/ Khajjiar . With the magnificent views of Pir Panjal , this property has an old world charm which makes the experience even more delightful.

Dear DiveySetia, Thank you for your kind words, I am truely delighted to know that enjoyed every aspect of your stay, and found the old world charm to be delightful. It's old world charm and character that has been appreciated by many of our kind guests. The rooms are very spacious and our top floor has solid old wooden floors and ceilings. Each of the rooms has a fireplace, which due to safety reasons are not being used. Glad to know that you enjoyed the unobstructed views of the mighty Pir Panjlal Himalayan ranges. Again thank you for sharing your feedback, we look forward to welcoming you back soon. With warm regards, Hanut Bal

Dear AmitKumaC11, Thank you for your kind words, I am deeply touched. Glad to know that you found the location to be of convenience, we are close to the meadow, yet tucked away in a private forest estate. I am delighted to know that you enjoyed all aspects of your stay, from the stunning snow covered Himalayan peaks, spacious heritage rooms and the home cooked meals. I enjoyed my conversations with you and look forward to welcoming you back soon. With warm regards, Hanut Bal

Visiting a place during covid times makes us rethink about our decision so many times,but trust me staying in Deodar Heritage was a blessing.The staff is supremely caring and super cautious for cleaning and sanitizing things. The view and food is amazing, no other hotel can beat that.It’s a wonderful place to rejuvenate yourself. Our decision of staying in Khajjiar instead of Dalhousie was perfect.
