“Indeed a "Home" Stay”
Reviewed May 29, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

A lovely property high on the hills facing the valley. That sums up the perfect weekend getaway to a serene location.
The owner, Mr. Kamal Mehra, stays there with his family and rents out 4-5 rooms for the guests. The hospitality is amazing and you feel at home. The view from the rooms viz. valley view, lightning over the mountains, sunrise etc. are a life time experience. Rooms are big enough with wooden architecture.
The food is cooked by his wife from the vegetables grown in the garden. Hence you get home food taste with fresh unadulterated veggies. Even the chicken is awesome for the non-veg lovers. Don't forget to try the home made apple & plum chutneys sans any chemicals.
The resort is a bit off from the main road and google doesn't route you to the hotel, but Mr. Mehra calls you up on the day of arrival and guides you. He even suggests places of interest and special routes for an amazing experience.
Had an amazing stay & would love to go back again.

“Great homestay!”
Reviewed January 16, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

From the moment you arrive you are welcomed with tea/coffee and excellent views. Can see Panchachuli mountain range from your bedroom window. Kamal and family will make sure you are well fed with great home cooked meals using local ingredients with large portions!

Kamal and his wife speak good English and can help with any requirements.

“Would Love to come back !”
Reviewed October 22, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

I chanced upon the listing for this property online and after spending the diwali long weekend I am so glad that I found this hidden gem. As other members have rightly said, this is in fact a home away from home. The list of positives is long, so let me share some of these (in no particular order)
1. Mr. Kamal and his wife are extremely warm people. Their hospitality is unmatched. He will himself call you in the morning of the day of your arrival to check if you are on the right road. He will offer detailed route info. Once you arrive, you just sit back and let him run the show for you. He is a one man army helped wonderfully well by his wife and their helping hand Rakesh.
2. Food is homely and delightful. They grow most of their vegetables on their own. You can cook your own food, their kitchen has an open door policy.
3. The location is perfect. Just 200 meters off the main road, in an idyllic setting that offers plenty of sunshine (straight into your room) that starts as early as 6 in the morning till around 4 in the evening. The property is East facing so you can enjoy the Sunrise from your Bed sipping on your morning cup of tea.
4. The Lawn. Lay back, sit around with a cup of coffee in the Lawn and let the magic unfold.
5. Cleanliness is top notch.

Overall, I would definitely go back again and would love to recommend this to others who would prefer a homestay over a typical hotel. Well done Kamal Ji!

“Home at the lap of nature”
Reviewed October 6, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This property is truly a home- your home at one of the best, peaceful, not so commercialized hill station Mukteshwar, around 300 Km from Delhi. This could be first choice if you love to stay at peaceful, tranquil, homestay/ guest house facilities, soaking the environ around. This could be very good option if you want to have a large family tour with complete privacy as this is 4-5 bedroom property.
We booked 2 bedrooms for extended family. A few meters of non- mettled strip off the main road, this is beautifully built house. We loved the setting of the rooms, vast window panes in every room looking directly at Panchachuli range, scenic Ramgarh valley view, and well maintained plants and flowers around.Rooms can easily sleep 3, and you can get a proper extra bed on request/ charge. Neat and clean rooms.
Owner couple Mr and Mrs Mehra are true Pahadi hosts, for whom guest's comfort is of utmost priority. They are very flexible to fulfil any request from the guests. Even the support staff is so well mannered and polite. There is always a prompt yes to any request. Lady of house along with the kitchen staff cooks all fare as if for her own family.
So concerned they are for every guest's privacy that they politely requested to a group of boys staying next room enjoying, even though we didn't have any complaint.
It's a new property and hence you may see some minute improvement areas, which owner would be happy to know.
It was a great stay, fully satisfactory for whole family- from kids to elders. Great view, delicious food, personalized service, serene environment, and above all excellent hosts- what else we look for in a vacation!

“Excellent place in lap of natural beauty”

We, a group of six, had visited Mukteshwar, Uttarakahand, India for 2 nights and 3 days (12th Aug - 14th Aug 2017) and pre-booked 3 rooms in Panchachuli House without knowing much about the location - we had very brief idea. To our pleasant surprise, when we reached the place we were greeted by the owner Mr. Kamal Mehra and he showed us the rooms. The first sound came out was WOW.. such a lovely place with quite sizable bedroom with attached bath. The view from the rooms were simply superb and amazing - right from the bed we could get 180 degree view of mountains and valley through the huge wall-to-wall glass window.

The services from breakfast to dinner were excellent and the food was terrific. Additionally the hospitality of Mr. Kamal Mehra, his wife and daughters was really touched our heart. We liked the place so much that we are planning to visit again in the month of December to watch winter from Panchachuli House.

I will definitely recommend this place to stay with 100% satisfaction.

“Home away from our home. Best family stay in Mukteshwar. Excellent Hospitality.”
Reviewed June 26, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed from 9th June to 12th June at Panchachuli house. The best hospitality with all warmth of home. Food quality is superb. Never felt need of anything more. Location is excellent with mesmerising Himalayan range view. Rooms are with all the comfort and luxury of a hotel. Felt like a worthful escape from the usual.

Mr. Kamal Mehra (Owner) is an awesome host and very helpful with a pleasant smile, He guided us better than google maps for the perfect way to every location at mukteshwar. Rakesh (Service boy) is also very helpful. I recommend this home to everyone specially families and couples.

“Perfect weekend getaway and spot on location”
Reviewed June 8, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

So on my birthday in June, we planned to go to Mukteshwar. Of course, it is the peak season and so the hotel prices and availability was an issue. My friend cam to the rescue and saw this beautiful homestay and instantly booked it.

This place, although only locals will be able to tell you, is suitably located where all the local buses go. From the main road cuts a kachha rasta and after a 10-15 minute walk, you spot this wonderful house, seems as if situated on the edge of the mountain with a big porch.

We spent two nights and wish could spend more, super impressed by Kamal Ji, his wife, two children and caretaker Rakesh Bhaiya. They are very warm and welcoming and always happy to talk to.

I can't thank them enough for their excellent hospitality and yum food. They even baked a special cake for me on my birthday night. Not to forget the lovely chutney and pickles and simple yet delicious food. (We bought plum chutney and pickles for a very nominal price)

The rooms were clean and maintained. We were lucky that we got the best room with a huge window where you see the sunrise and sunset from your bed. For a fun evening, you can play carrom and cards as well.

I spent an entire evening on the second day outside in their garden, where it also started drizzling and spoke so much with Kuhu. Kamal - if you are reading this, give her my love and tell her I miss her. She's lovely.

Also, if you are fit enough then, you can easily move around the market. Else, suggest to via your own vehicle so that it is not hectic enough.

Such a peaceful and pleasant time it was.
