#11 of 164 B&Bs / Inns in Mussoorie
The Cloud End Bungalow, built by Major Edmund Swetenham in 1838, is one of the first four finest buildings of Mussoorie. Four generations of the Swetenham family lived in this estate, which the Major received as dowry for marrying a local village girl "Gulabo nee Rose". Mr D.R Agarwal, a far-sighted visionary, bought the estate in 1965 but visit it a year later after making the access to it motorable. He was the first Indian owner of this private 400 acre forest estate. His youngest son Mr Digvijay Agarwal inherited the estate and registered it as a resort in the early '90s. This resort has undergone major upgrade for over a year now.'It was pay back time!' Says Mr Digvijay Agarwal, the owner of Cloud End. A new chapter has been added to the history of the hill station with creature comforts of our times mingling gently with tradition. Our inventory includes 4 Heritage Deluxe suites in the (Swetenham block), with 6 deluxe rooms in the (annexe block), an independent log cottage with 2 cabins, and 10 huts (still under renovation). We have a forty cover restaurant Rose's Diner offers a breathtaking view of the snow capped Himalayan range to the East; the Doon valley to the south; the Winter Line to the west and the Benog wildlife sanctuary sprawled to the north. Our 400 acre private estate has numerous nature trails of its own as well as hikes all around us. Popular among these are the Benog hill ( a Wildlife Sanctuary), Dudhli village, Bhadraj temple, Everest house and the Wishing Well. Cloud End Forest Resort is a small family run business in a 400 acre private forest estate. It offers solitude, calmness, peace, closeness to nature, adventure and wildlife to its guests.

I visited this place with my entire family for 02 nights from 08 to 10 April and it's a worth experience. Starting from early check-in , arranging special bonfire and candle night dinner for the entire family till late check out they just bombarded us with the best of their services. I will highly recommend this place specially for the family outing.

Never stayed in such a beautiful place which was perfect for our requirements of Covid safe place as well as forest hotel. The host 2 sisters were very polite and hard working girls who are managing this property very well. Let me be fair for future traveller to this resort. Food is a big issue here as it’s less in portion and no taste. On top of it no variety as u hv to eat the same on Lunch and dinner. The first hotel which do not provide free breakfast. We spoke to the management they say they will improve as nothing is available in next 5 -10 kms and no delivery of zomoto. In all beautiful place and likely to visit if they improve the food.

The best thing about the resort is its excellent location.Far from the maddening touristy crowd of Mussoorie you can try sit back and enjoy nature at its best. Few tourists venture out this far and you can enjoy walking along the curated trails in peace. The food at the resort is awesome and so is the service.

While I was staying at some other place in Hathipaon, I trekked to Cloud End Forest to have lunch and also to visit bird sanctuary situated close by. The property is such a delight. It covers a very large area with lots and lots and lots of greens and nature next to you. The property is very well maintained and gives out a clean and pure smell around. I had lunch at their restaurant and surprisingly they had bharwa karelas in their menus. Dont miss out on this if you like this bitter vegetable. Next time I am definitely going to stay at Cloud End! It really is Cloud end.

The Cloud End Forest Resort is a forest bungalow/ private property cocooned by the hills on every side. It is easily (and sadly) one of the few places left in Mussoorie to enjoy spectacular vistas of the hills (and the Himalayan mountain peaks, in the right season), unmarred by strident human noise. The property also has the double advantage of stunning sunrise and sunset views. The ideal itinerary would be complete sightseeing in Landour and downtown Mussoorie, and then arrive here to rest in the lap of the verdant hills. The stillness is musical, rejuvenating the mind and spirit. We lost count of the rapturous hours we spent on the bench outdoors, held spellbound by the tranquil hills and the temple yonder. Leisure here is a throwback to the times of yore – be it with indoor games like chess/carrom/ludo to choose from or revisiting vintage Reader’s Digest issues going back to 1960s! Breakfast and dinner can be ordered. And the cooks stir up a meal which is flavourful and fairly priced. The Agarwal sisters are kind and gracious hosts, who ensure you have a comfortable stay and left in want of nothing. A getaway in every sense of the word, the Cloud End Forest Resort is a paradise for nature-lovers, trekkers and those looking to spend quiet, family time. Happy Tip to Traveller – You can ask Deeksha for a private spot for sunset views. We promise you – It will be the best evening of your vacation!

As a westerner I could not bring the usual meaning of Resort to this specific area west of Moussoire .  Indeed some reviewers have referred to is a being ‘famous’ for its activities and or its museum.  We came by taxi to here today to view the location as a possible place for us to spend 4-5 days.  What I met was to say the Very Least quite unexpected.  The location Is bordering on remote which has pluses, thus I was not taken aback by a guarded Gate.  I was told to wait a minutes after which i indicated I wanted to view the facilities to see if we would make a booking.  To this I was told it was Not possible “all Booking have to be made online.” Pressing the point that I could hardly book when I was being prevented from viewing what it was I should anticipate. The young lad reconsidered and said I could enter to view for Rupees 50.  Most unusual standard for a ‘Resort’.  I complied and entered. This was followed by my next perception, that being the beautiful Silence BUT not a singular human to be seen, save an elderly gentleman who tucked in some distance behind me.  I assumed he was the backup or secondary Guard.  Two very large dogs encaged on the roof announced my arrival, should there be anyone about to hear their alarm.  I walked past and below the westerly facing rooms, all of which had the bedding hung over the rail, perhaps for airing and / or drying.  At the end of this building I noticed another behind it some distance back but as it did not look very inviting, and there being no one about I thought it best to press on ahead towards a sign indicating Restaurant.  As I headed up the steps the elderly Gentleman began talking to someone In Hindi (?), it turned out to be me. I quickly viewed the empty restaurant (wish I could have gone in as it looked inviting) turned and departed , which by this time some young lad appeared.  He indicated the View Point was “That Way”.  I followed his instructions and headed off down the path.  I began to think that perhaps my 50 Rps was meant to be used only for a tramp down this path, though I distinctly made my wishes , my intent known to the Guard.  The path to the View Point is nothing spectacular or glaringly more so than some other locations along the Moussoire Ridge. Indeed there are points along the road to Dhanaulti which would rival this quite easily.  After my return back from the path all human presence had disappeared and not seeing anything particularly inviting about this location I chanced one quick look into a room via the front window.. I really wanted to  meet some Receptionists, to help me here.  All rooms appeared empty.  Below this entry path facing west are what I can only assume to be small cabins, huts, rooms, whatever for rent. Again I decided not to press my luck and headed up towards the Gate. I had amassed sufficient information to make my decision on Clouds End Resort.  Given some of the reviews I had read I must assume this is surely Off Season for this ‘Resort’.

Went there... drive was through dense forest with narrow road but it was beautiful. Sweet smell of trees and group of clouds made the drive more interesting. Resort was almost closed as there was no guest. Paid Rs 50 per person as entry fee. I loved the place in spite of the fact the lawns were poorly maintained.View from the resort was picturesque and divine. Variety of flowers and plants enhancing the beauty. It was very peaceful place and good for nature lovers.
