Left a big chunk of my heart at the lovely homestay that is Deodar Manor. The property is beautiful, perfect for nature lovers and those seeking peace and quiet. A forest right outside, and the Khajjiar lake, a stone's throw away; the location of Deodar Manor is amazing and boasts of splendid views. I especially loved the glass verandah, where I would often read and chill with a hot cup of coffee and occasionally gaze out to the mighty Himalayas. The property is amazing, no doubt, but what really made my stay there amazing were the hosts: Hanut and his mother; the staff: Nitin and Pooja and the dogs: Napolean and Roger really took care of us and made us feel like we were at home amidst family. I would 100% reccomend Deodar Manor to anyone seeking some peace and mountain

We wanted to get away from the gloominess and madness of Mumbai and while our research was on to find a "Perfect getaway" we stumbled upon this place. And what a find it is. Deodar Manor is not just a property - it's a package. It's a package of all things that one should cherish in life. Good food, warm people around you, snow-clad mountains to endlessly look at, peace around, and love in every detail. And a special mention to Roger (A full-grown Doberman) and 2-month-old Napolean. There's nothing more that we needed from our "perfect getaway". The room is thoughtfully decorated with intricate artworks on walls that you'll end up staring at for hours appreciating their beauty. Hanut has made sure that the property has all the modern equipment to ensure a safe stay and also

Dear Amritesh B, Thank you for visiting us at Deodar Manor and for taking the time to write such a kind review. I am very happy to know that you enjoyed all aspects of your stay, from the snow covered mountains, the home cooked meals to our dear Roger and Napoleon, our canine ambassadors who formed a close bond with you. It was a privilege for me to host someone like you with so much talent in Yoga. I look forward to hosting a yoga retreat here in the not distant future with you at the Lead. I will be sure to pass along your kind comments to our team, I know they will be thrilled to hear all this. With warm regards, Hanut Singh Bal

We visited this property on 27th March 2021 - 30th March 2021. We were a total of 8 friends. Fortunately this property has 4 bedrooms,so it was a perfect fit for us. The property is mind blowing. The rooms are well appointed and very tastefully done . Reminds one of a colonial British era Manor ! The beauty is everything is so well taken care of,the furniture is polished and shining,the brass ware is shining, all the artefacts are carefully placed . The house reflects that it is well cared for and loved. Thanks to Hanut and his Mom ,a quiet dignified lady. The staff comprises of Raju,Charan and Pooja. They are ever smiling and ready to assist. Pooja specially came in handy for a foot massage after a 3 hour trek turned to a 7 hour trek! Location of the property is so beautiful

Dear ShakunNewDelhi, Thank you for composing this beautiful poetry, we are all deeply touched. I immensely enjoyed my conversations and the walk through the forest with you. We are all delighted to know that you enjoyed your stay. In order to serve you better, we now have a new chef with a menu that offers much more of a variety, one that includes jelly and custard for sure :) In addition we have added local items to our menu and look forward to welcoming you back soon once things normalise. With warm regards, Hanut Singh Bal

I had booked the property in January and was waiting eagerly to be there .......We were a group of 11 people which included my parents as well as my children. Once i stepped in the property it was a home away from home. Mr. Hanut, the owner , not even for once made me feel that i was an outsider. I was in the lap of nature in my own Bungalow. Everything was just perfect once you sit in front of the Pir Panjal Range and sip your coffee you simply forget the hustle and bustle of the city.. Hours seem to be like minutes and you are totally lost in nature. The only sound that comes is the birds and thats it.... Evenings are beautiful too ... sit out in front of the barbeque sip your drink and watch the stars over your head. We were lucky to get a clear full moon night with the Pir
