First of all, the cover image on this page is not of Somerset, it's another lodge downhill, owned by a relative, so if you want this cottage, ask specifically for it. I think it's called Oak Chalet. Secondly, if you are looking for solitude, or mountain views, this is not the place. It is surrounded by multiple other resorts, cafes,... More

Food is simple and delicious having distinct local flavours. Staff is very friendly and full of hospitality. The lodge is very pretty with exotic flowers and plants everywhere, a garden and lawn with a grand view of the... More

Did not realize that November is the best month to travel to Mukteshwar, less traffic on roads and you get personalized service in resorts. Having said that, my trip to Mukteshwar was one of my best short breaks. We started at 5am from Delhi and arrived at Mukteshwar around lunch. We had no prior booking, this was my 3rd trip... More

I went to Mukteshwar with my family and guests from Mumbai! Had a great time at the lodge. Your get a panoramic view of the himalayas from the garden. The rooms are comfortable and the food is just perfect! Mukteshwar and Somerset is definitely a better option than the over crowded Nainital!

Fantastic place to stay in. The new property.. Gahna resort is also a good place to stay in. .. good rooms and good food..lot of fruits to eat. His cook and his staff is most helpful. Most people are unaware of the rap,ing and rock climbing activities ahead of the temple premises.

We visited Mukteshwar in Oct 2012. It was a perfect time to go as flowers were in full bloom and the weather just right, on the colder side. We loved the resort the moment we entered. It has a big garden in the front which gives a good valley view and plenty of sunlight till 12-1 pm. The flowers bed... More

Mukhteshwar is one of lesser known destinations in Uttranchal but is spectacular with its wide 200 mile view of the Himalayan ranges starting from the Kedardome to the Annapurna. Somerset Lodge is a great place to stay with a super view of the hills and valley. Very nice people to take care of you and Raju Mehra has great knowledge... More
