I went there with family in the April of 2013 and couldn't find it listed in TripAdvisor at that time for review. It is pleasantly surprising that it is now and that too on the top. It is a beautiful small yet big-at-heart property with sweet owners. The best part about it is that it is almost sunrise facing. The food is awesome. We would definitely recommend it and would stay there for sure if we go to Mukteshwar again.

Room Tip: There are 6 rooms and they all are good. But the ones near to the reception are better.

Mystic Lodge is one of the best places i have been to with my family. this was the second time we visited mystic to celebrate New Year. This place is owned by Mrs.Manju Sharma whom we lovingly call Manju aunty. Manju aunty makes you feel as if you are visiting your own home. she is amazingly sweet and motherly that you fall in love with place. She gives personalised attention to even the minutest details. Food is amazing and the staff is more than helpful. Even the location is enchanting. Therefore it is the perfect getaway with your family.

Waking up to views of the snowy peaks, lush green valleys and blooming flowers, sitting by the bonfire and gazing at the star studded sky, enjoying delicious "ghar ka khana" in the cosy dining room, and being pampered silly by Manju aunty and the helpful staff; these are just a few of the experiences at Mystic Mukteshwar Lodge.
Whether you are travelling with family, friends or a loved one, you are in for a real treat! The place spells beauty, comfort and warmth, all at an affordable price.
Having come from a metropolitan city, my boyfriend and I were looking for a change from the hustle bustle of city life, and we got exactly what we wanted.
Looking forward to going back to this gorgeous paradise soon!

Mystic lodge was not just an accommodation, it was an experience. If it was not for my job, i would have never left. The lady who owns the place, is amazingly sweet and courteous. We ended up talking to her all the time. The staff makes you feel pampered. They literally gave us a private bonfire right outside our room. Also tea and coffee are on the house. Me and my girlfriend overstuffed ourselves every time we ate. The food was wonderful. TIP: please try the chilli pickle, its sweet and hot.

The lodge is literally a mystical place. Its tucked in a peaceful corner amidst the hills. the sky was clear and filled with stars, also a powercut at night revealed the edge of milky way. The decor and windchimes really take you away from the hustle of city life. If you like dogs, you are in for a real treat. The guard dogs are huge and fuzzy. i could pet them all day. Simply Beautiful Dogs.

Generally speaking, we find a place to go and then look for accommodation. But this is an exception, I think you could visit mukteshwar just to be at this amazing place.

Room Tip: All rooms are equal. if you go in a group than the last room is good as its very close to a hangout...

A small and very pretty boutique hotel, run by Mrs Sharma and her son Vivek, Mystic Mukteshwar provides the comforts and feel of being at home, or an aunt's house. We stayed there many times when our own house was being built close by, and the memories are lasting. Mrs Sharma is a natural genius at growing beautiful plants, and one is amazed by the variety and profusion of flowering and non-flowering - in fact, even fruiting - plants in her pots and planters. And I haven't yet said a word about the food, which is sumptuous and worth staying extra days for. A must if you are visiting the area. Vivek is a storehouse of local information, be it on trekking routes, sights, or the best places to spot a leopard!

Room Tip: The rooms are in a straight line, nothing to differentiate really, but if you want a bit more privac...

Picture a Victorian writer describing a quaint, sleepy village in medieval England in one of his novels, the one where people go to reflect, recover and rejuvenate. Stone houses with sloped tin roofs, trees clinging to the precipitous mountain face, billowing smoke, the odd ruminant, an almost forlorn church, small talk at the town square, clouds moving languidly over the valley below as if there’s no other place they’d rather be. Now imagine this in the Himalayan foothills instead of an English county. That’s Mukteshwar.

Mystic Mukteshwar Lodge is a B&B run by a charming lady from Delhi who upped and left for Mukteshwar one fine day 10 years ago and labored to set up this lovely place which comprises of 6 bedrooms, 1 dining, a sit out area, 3 dogs, plenty of plants and a general air of oneness with nature. Whilst there is abundant greenery around with amazing views of lofty Himalayan peaks, what sustains this place is Manju aunty’s love, affection and zest. From the moment you check in, to the moment you wave goodbye, she will keep you enthralled with stories of many lives – her own and of those who have provided anecdotes which can sustain endless coffee fuelled conversations. There isn’t a whole lot to do in Mukteshwar - which one assumes is precisely the kind of holiday that you are looking for given you are reading this page – but this lodge will provide the sort of warm comfort that will keep you engaged even on the dreariest of winter evenings. The rooms are fairly simple, but the rest they will provide will rival the most luxurious of settings you would have stayed in.

A description of this place will not be complete without a mention of the food. Home-like is what’s been repeatedly used to describe it in many of the reviews below and its my lip smacking pleasure to confirm that they are all spot on. Each meal seemed carefully prepared to ensure the guests enjoyed the one thing that most commonly tethers one to home even when thousands of miles away – food. We over ate on almost every occasion which is a testimony to the quality that emanated from the kitchen. You can order tea/coffee as many times as you like, its all on the house, and the staff will ensure they make it to your liking. While we’re on staff, they will literally run to your room every time you press the calling bell and will do their utmost to make your stay a pleasure – definitely one of the best support cast I have come across.

I understand there are treks and trails around which unfortunately we couldn’t go on, although we took a few walks around including the 5 km walk to Mukteshwar which took us through the lovely IVRI forest. Nainital is also about 45 kms (1.5 hour journey by car) and the staff will help arrange a local cab which you can hire for a day tour to Nainital.

It was by accident that we stayed at the Mystic Lodge. We had initially thought of staying at the Mountain Trail (which turns out is next door) but upon reading the owner’s aggressive, almost violent replies to every negative review on Tripadvisor, we decided to look for other options and what a happy accident it turned out to be that we chanced upon this place. We will definitely return and I hope most if not all of those reading this review also get to experience Manju aunty’s hospitality at least once.

Room Tip: Pretty much all six are the same.
