About this listing
Nestled in a small basti near mussorie, we are a boutique B&B place surrounded by pine and deodar trees and himalayan forest. We have long walks/hikes, peace, solitude and rich bird life to offer apart from basic tastefully done rooms n running cafe
We are away from the busy mountain town on mussorie but not so far that you feel isolated. The mall road can be reached in ten mins by car and about 35 on foot.
For those interested in history, we are part of the famous park estate where sir george everest first established his house and began marathon work on the survey of india. He went on to measure circumferance of the earth and height of everest peak. We are so proud to be part of this estate and sir george everest house is accessible by foor / road.
Guest shall have access to the common cafeteria on the ground foor, common verandah and common deck (meant only for house guests and not for cafeteria guests)
Library on the cafeteria ofders great reads for those interested in exploring india and guests shall be permitted to use these books while in the premises.
Cafeteria also has toys and board games for kids and adults which shall be freely used while guests are in the premises at the lodge.
Interaction with guests
We generally shuttle between mumbai and this mountain home so we may or may not be available at all the time. Though our caretakers would take care of entire housekeeping and cooking at additional costs.
Stay at the lodge would be incomplete without walk to the whishingwell and a visit ti the historic george everest house on hill top. For those who love the night life - stepping out of the lodge at night - one could be rewarded with calls of mountain scoops owl and collared owl (rare visitor)
We are 4 kms from mussorie mall on the library side. This side is popularly known as library chawk side. Drive upto mussoorie modern school and just ask for hathipaon. We are on the junction of hathipaon and there r frequent boards guiding you to 'seegreen'.
For those coming by public transport, pl get down at library chawk and then there are taxis at the union stand getting you to hatbipaon for 300 rs per taxi (carrying capacity 5 pax)
There is no public transport beyong library chawk.
For those coming from dehradun airport, can hire a taxo for approx 1400 inr to the lodge or take a bus to library chawk and then use local taxi. For those coming from dehradun railway station, there are regular 'shared taxis' to library chawk and they typically charge 140 inr per person.
Please appreciate that we do not have too many house rules but here are a few that we would like you to appreciate while you stay with us-

- We do not have any ‘room service’ and we do not permit eating/ cooking in the rooms. Tea, Coffee and other beverages are served 'on order' and you can enjoy them on the veranda and the deck.
- In these mountains, water in your tap travels almost 30 kms before it reaches you. IT IS PRECIOUS! Pl try and save on the same.

- We prefer you not blasting music in the room / veranda
- During winter time (Dec 15th till March 15th), coil heater is provided in the room and the same is not charged separately. If you wish, you can avail of electric blankets (subject to availability) by paying extra charge @ Rs 300 per night and Wi-Fi is charged @ Rs 250 per day. Please bear in mind that like everything else in Mussorie, internet is also slow and moody ~ therefore not dependable :)
- We request you to speak softer in the rooms as our walls are porous and the quiet area that we live in ~ your loud voice is capable of disturbing neighbor and owner occupying the adjoining cottage :)
