Excellent property, I stayed here for 4 days with my family and had a fantastic vacation. The estate is located amid the peaceful surrounding on the hathi paon road overlooking the valley with snow-capped mountains forming a beautiful background, and that too just 10 minutes’ drive from the rush of the mall road. The resort provides pick and drop to the mall road, you place a request and just in minutes you are back in the business hovering and shopping on the mall. Company garden is just 5 minutes’ walk from the property and again is an excellent picnic spot specially to enjoy sun bath in winters.
The rooms are spacious and have all the amenities. The rooms in the new wing have individual balconies and the ones on the first floor have very good views, whereas the rooms in the old wing have a common balcony with an excellent view. The deck has great views and a good option to unwind on a pleasant day. I did missed binoculars while on the deck, as wanted to see enhanced view of the snow-capped mountains (Yamunotri peaks as told by the staff at the estate).
Staff at the estate is courteous and offers an excellent service. Food is yummy be it Indian or Continental , though the breakfast menu specially for vegetarians has got limited options but you can tell them whatever you wish to eat and that would be made and surely you would relish it . The only thing not operational during the winter off-season was spa but steam bath was available to detoxify oneself.
In addition to the different activities offered, the estate has plenty of open space around to enjoy the nature and charge you with plenty of oxygen and freshness to last till your next trip to the mighty Himalayas.
Thanks to Mr Rakesh and the team for providing a perfect holiday that we were looking for

- The Amber Vermont Estate is a boutique retreat in the Himalayas. Vermont Estate was originally built in the latter half of the 19th century by a Britisher and is one of the oldest estates in the Himalayan town of Mussoorie.

The location, and the mix of modern comfort, old English charm and personalized service make The Amber Vermont Estate a treasure in Mussoorie. In the early 1800's, Vermont Estate was part of a grand estate called Logie Estate owned by the well-known Dr. Hugh Falconer. Dr. Falconer was a Scottish geologist, botanist, and paleontologist.
