The cottage, a 120 year old bungalow is so beautifully done, with pretty sunny sit outs, magnificent view of the snow peaks...it was sheer bliss. Richard and his gracious wife Elizabeth are so warm. and the home cooked... More

I have stayed here twice and wish I could have stayed longer and more frequently! It's an atmospheric, colonial home that it's owner Richard Wheeler and his gracious wife have opened up to visitors! The views of the Himalayan peaks is to die for, the bird life around is amazing and the meal times are something to look forward to... More

Richard and Elizabeth Wheeler are the most wonderful hosts you can imagine. Their beautifully preserved 150-year-old stone cottage is cosy and comfortable with lovely little homely touches and all the comforts of modern living. The food is absolutely terrific --Elizabeth is a gourmet cook, and it's hard to resist any of the ample delicacies on offer. Be prepared to gain... More

We stayed at the Deodars Cottage this past weekend (7-10 Sept, 2013). As there were no other guests so we basically had the cottage to ourselves. The hospitality is genuine and the food served is simply awesome (specially the continental dinners). We enjoyed every bit of our stay and it was indeed rejuvenating. Hats off to Elizabeth's culinary skills. We... More

We stopped here for one night en-route to Leti 360. We received a genuinely warm welcome from Richard and Elizabeth. The views from their garden are spectacular and I cannot think of a prettier place to enjoy the very ample and tasty breakfast provided. Dinner was excellent, a real tribute to Elizabeth's cooking skills and the portions were very generous.... More

From the moment we stepped on the property we knew we were somewhere very special. We were genuinely cared for by two kind ,caring people. The food was excellent, we all ate way to much home made wonderfully fresh bread and oh yes, the tea, another treat. The actual treat are Richard and his wonderful family, we felt like we... More

we found this place on trip advisor and with very limited knowledge of the place, we went there as a family by faith. And boy was it good!!! It's a beautiful home and you are taken care by beautiful people. If you love the peace and quiet of the mountains - this is the place. The way you are cared... More
