We spent 4 nights and 3 days at the Resort and after spending Chilly Nights in Tents in Chopta, Misty's Oak Suite with electric blanket and heaters with all the facilities was a bliss and Wife was super elated to be there.

The Oak Suite being located at the highest point in Resort has the most Amazing view of the Himalayan Range. The Suite interiors and the furniture are top notch.

Being situated in the midst of the Jungle, an offbeat location, Madhur and staff ensured that we had best home-style meals which were finger-licking good.
The Staff was always ready to listen in to our request and were very humble.
Did a Trek to Lamkeshwar Mahadev and Vishnu Mandir from where the view is breathtaking. The Sunset point we could visit only once due to the cloudy weather, but it was worth it.

Madhur has really put his heart and soul in the property and it is visible when you notice the different Suites, which are built with so much passion and patience over the years.

Madhur, you were excellent host and would love to come back to Misty as soon as possible. Thank you for helping us make some good memories to last for our lifetime.

Date of stay: November 2020

Dear Prashant,

In between your review and my very delayed response, you have already been here again. :) Such are the times!

It was fun hosting you and I am sure that we will get to see you again sometime soon. Late autumn and early winter would be interesting with its beautiful balance of great weather and fantastic views.

Looking forward to seeing you.

regards,

Suroohi, Ambika and Madhur

We spent 5 night at this beautiful and quaint resort amidst the COVID crisis. Initily we were a bit apprehensive about travelling, but found comfort here due to it's offbeat location and huge space (spread out across ~1,000 acres) which makes it perfectly suitable for social distancing. The property is based in a lush green forest with beautiful Himalayan views from every cottage in the property. Ambika was hands down a brilliant host. Besides doing all she could to make our stay comfortable, she personally cooked exquisite dishes for us incl. a fancy anniversary cake for us. The staff was also very friendly and courteous, and never said no to any of our requests. They also took us for 2 amazing hikes including a sunset walk, and Lamkeshwar walk. The property is also equipped with an activity room where we spent some time playing TT, carom and badminton. Last but not the least, we were served a great variety of food during our stay including a special local Kumaoni lunch, and desi mutton. Overall, we will highly recommend this place for its beautiful ambience (himalayan views), reasonable pricing (inclusive of meals), food and hospitality, and more so during the current pandemic.

Hi,

Yes. You were amongst the very few guests we were able to host, amidst the chaos that befell all of us.

Lately,, we have had quite a few guests stay 4 -5 nights, and have had good feedback from them. We are also working on a completely refreshed menu this Autumn. We are pretty excited about that too!

Thank you fro taking time to write this and apologies for responding so late. Covid really derailed all our processes and we are just about getting back to most.

Look forward to hosting you again sometime.

regards,
Dear Rajesh,

Thank you for your short and to the point review. We are glad you had a good time and would be happy to host you again.

The stay at The Misty Mountains was a totally relaxing one. The hospitality and overall arrangements were great. Considering the off beat location, the team had taken care of minute things and gave the customers a memorable experience. The food was excellent and the spread was also decent. We met people who have been coming here since last 10 years and always found the place better than their last visit.The trek to the Lambakeshwar Mahadev temple was a 3 km trek, with a great view and gave us a chance to enjoy the snow. Overall, its a great play to relax for a few days and enjoy nature.

The Misty Mountains Retreat is part of the 1000 acre Jhaltola Estate and the cottages, rather log cabins are amidst pine, oak and rhododendron forest.
Part of the estate is now home to Madhur and Ambika and they have developed the surrounding areas as a resort, rather, a home stay. Aided with an excellent team of most friendly staff, they made this place home for us for 5 days or so.

It is a collection of wood cottages or what are traditionally log cabins. Except that the cottages at Misty Mountains are not austere. They are fitted with comfy beds, sofa, dressing area and a top floor with extra beds as well. They have heater and geyser and even electric blankets to cope with the cold weather. Mind you, there is no television here, or anywhere in Misty Mountains. But when the windows open to the grand view of the gorgeous Himalayas or star studded dark blue night sky, who needs gadgets?
The first morning, when we removed the curtains from the windows, our jaws dropped.
We do not have words to express our awe. All we can say is that it seemed surreal – like a dream. We just could not turn our eyes or cameras away.The mist had completely transformed the mountains we could now see the justification behind the name, The Musty Mountains.

Owner Madhur would ask us what do we want for or breakfast / lunch etc. and our specifications would be prepared correct to the T. All the elaborate but home-style meals were accompanied by endless varieties of tastiest jams, marmalades and pickles made in-house by Ambika from organic local produce. There was no way one could fall sick with the food here. The dinners were beside crackling bonfire and digestion aided by the excellent honey-lemon-ginger tea from the kitchen.
A special shout out to the Kumaoni meal which was the best that we have had!

The staff here are like Santa’s elves. You don’t hear them – but every request is complied to the T. The whole staff always stood in yes to all our silly demands. Given that it’s a mountaintop where the nearest small market is 13 km away and nearest biggish town is 25 km away, providing the level of service they deliver is anything but easy!

Some of the staff here accompanied us during treks and village walks. They kept supporting us while maneuvering narrow paths and filling us with jungle trivia and leopard stories all along the way.

The Misty Mountains organises treks, village walks or even night jungle tours from their property. They provide trained escorts and naturalists to aid the guests.
Time just stood still here. It was slow travel as they say – an ideal way to finish the year.

Dear Delhifundoos,

Slow travel it is! The Misty experience is all about forest walks, lazy breakfasts, hikes and soaking in the 1000 acres of pure bliss around us.

It was so much fun hosting you. It has taken me a while to write back on your review, since all of us in the industry were completely derailed.

Hope to see you here again sometime.

regards,

Madhur
