Deodar Manor is probably one of my favourite places to go in Himachal . The Manor has a beautiful Tibetan inspired decor that gives the house its unique charm and a spiritual vibe and this along with great views of the mountains from the glass deck and the feeling of living amidst the forest is really something special .. Rooms and Bathrooms are large and well appointed with a well trained staff . Food is home style and great . They have a menu but I hardly referred to it . they were very flexible in the kitchen and I asked the cook to make what I wanted for every meal and they prepared it fresh and served hot ...it really felt like home ! Their Paronthas were superb ! A special mention about the owner who is very passionate about running this homestay is the sweetest host one can meet ! I really enjoyed his company through the forest Walks and some excursions ! I also want to make a special mention of aunty ( owner's mum ) . She is the sweetest and she went out of her way to prepare homestyle chicken curry for kids and it was superb ! Very sweet to talk to and motherly . she offered to lend her shawl to me since I wasn't carrying much woollens .Very warm and personal ! I loved every bit of the stay and will definitely come back to enjoy the mountains , deodar forest, chicken curry and the hot Paronthas !

Left a big chunk of my heart at the lovely homestay that is Deodar Manor. The property is beautiful, perfect for nature lovers and those seeking peace and quiet. A forest right outside, and the Khajjiar lake, a stone's throw away; the location of Deodar Manor is amazing and boasts of splendid views. I especially loved the glass verandah, where I would often read and chill with a hot cup of coffee and occasionally gaze out to the mighty Himalayas. The property is amazing, no doubt, but what really made my stay there amazing were the hosts: Hanut and his mother; the staff: Nitin and Pooja and the dogs: Napolean and Roger really took care of us and made us feel like we were at home amidst family. I would 100% reccomend Deodar Manor to anyone seeking some peace and mountain tranquility, and warmth amidst the cold Himalayas.

We wanted to get away from the gloominess and madness of Mumbai and while our research was on to find a "Perfect getaway" we stumbled upon this place. And what a find it is. Deodar Manor is not just a property - it's a package. It's a package of all things that one should cherish in life. Good food, warm people around you, snow-clad mountains to endlessly look at, peace around, and love in every detail. And a special mention to Roger (A full-grown Doberman) and 2-month-old Napolean. There's nothing more that we needed from our "perfect getaway". The room is thoughtfully decorated with intricate artworks on walls that you'll end up staring at for hours appreciating their beauty. Hanut has made sure that the property has all the modern equipment to ensure a safe stay and also ensure that a 190-year-old property maintains its heritage. While the rooms are amazing, there's a show-stealer - The 270 degree view of Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar ranges. The food is divine here. It's simple and delicious. It's made with utmost love and care by Raju ji, who's a craftsman in his own way. He'll make even a modest Daal rice taste awesome, he's that good. Nitin ji is here to make your stay as comfortable as possible and will understand your likes and dislikes really quickly and ensure that everything is as per your liking. Hanut is an exceptional host, to say the least, he guided us on things we should do there that are experiential and not touristy. He always tried to better our experience in whatever form possible. And when he asked us " Are you guys feeling at home" we could only reply "a little too much, can't believe we have to go back to Mumbai soon" :-) We stayed here for 6 nights and there wasn't a dull moment. There's so much to look forward to here: the food, the view, the people at the property, and two lovely canines. Can't wait to get back for a much longer stay.

Dear Amritesh B, Thank you for visiting us at Deodar Manor and for taking the time to write such a kind review. I am very happy to know that you enjoyed all aspects of your stay, from the snow covered mountains, the home cooked meals to our dear Roger and Napoleon, our canine ambassadors who formed a close bond with you. It was a privilege for me to host someone like you with so much talent in Yoga. I look forward to hosting a yoga retreat here in the not distant future with you at the Lead. I will be sure to pass along your kind comments to our team, I know they will be thrilled to hear all this. With warm regards, Hanut Singh Bal

We visited this property on 27th March 2021 - 30th March 2021. We were a total of 8 friends. Fortunately this property has 4 bedrooms,so it was a perfect fit for us. The property is mind blowing. The rooms are well appointed and very tastefully done . Reminds one of a colonial British era Manor ! The beauty is everything is so well taken care of,the furniture is polished and shining,the brass ware is shining, all the artefacts are carefully placed . The house reflects that it is well cared for and loved. Thanks to Hanut and his Mom ,a quiet dignified lady. The staff comprises of Raju,Charan and Pooja. They are ever smiling and ready to assist. Pooja specially came in handy for a foot massage after a 3 hour trek turned to a 7 hour trek! Location of the property is so beautiful and serene, overlooking snow capped mountains and para gliders passing by. Staff organises bonfire every evening. Food is simple and home cooked. Would request Hanut to look into the food aspect. A little variety in the menu ,with a few additions in the dessert section, something as simple as custard n jelly would really add to the experience at the manor. The beauty of the place inspired my husband Ashok Mandal to pen a poem which has been shared by Sahana ( thanks to her we visited this property)in a previous post.

Dear ShakunNewDelhi, Thank you for composing this beautiful poetry, we are all deeply touched. I immensely enjoyed my conversations and the walk through the forest with you. We are all delighted to know that you enjoyed your stay. In order to serve you better, we now have a new chef with a menu that offers much more of a variety, one that includes jelly and custard for sure :) In addition we have added local items to our menu and look forward to welcoming you back soon once things normalise. With warm regards, Hanut Singh Bal

This is a property,I am visiting for the 3rd time,along with a group of friends.This is Deodar Manor in Khajjiar,Himachal Pradesh----- "My home away from home"! I have written reviews about this property before too....never seems to Amaze me everytime !The beautiful serene place, the owner ,Hanut Bal and Auntyji( his mother), his staff... Raju,Chain Singh, Pooja and Sapna have become family for me! I am so much at peace🥰 Without me writing anymore,I will post a poem penned by our dear friend Ashok Mondol! He has beautifully captured the essence of this place. Enjoy! KHAJJIAR ⭐⭐⭐ Finally we arrived with our winding dreams in tow! The constant stream of the Paragliders zooming by in a flamboyant attempt to touch and kiss the snowcapped mountains! " Lucky" the horse is all set for his and his master's tryst with luck today ! The tall and dark Deodar trees overlooking the green and vibrant meadows soaked in dewdrops from the last night's offerings- while keeping a watch on the trickling human faces which will soon turn into a storm to be again sweeped away to their monotonies as the day ends ! While the cumulonimbus clouds descend on the unsuspecting valley, the old man with his scarred face bravely assures me of the eventual silver lining! In the stillness of time amidst the howling of wind and despairs of hungry hyennas , the white-robed presiding ghost just took his midnight stroll ! While with her lovable scars, the full moon is in her pristine glory, my dear, that's Khajjiar for you- Switzerland delivered " Mini" ! 💐🌕🌈 ASHOK MANDAL 07/04/2021

Dear Sahna M, Thank you for posting this fabulous review, the poetry composed by Mr. Ashok Mandal has described the experience that no words could describe better. I am proudly going to display this outstanding review. Additionally, I want to extend my sincerest gratitude to you, we immensely enjoy your company, and we love the title "My home away from Home" The Holi celebrations will remain unforgettable, although we missed your Mother and Bulbulji. Sending our warmest regards to them. We look forward to welcoming your family back again, your home away from home. With warm regards, Hanut Singh Bal
