Built in 1860, this property has very well retained its atmosphere. Thanks to owner and management one would presume. Massive wood everywhere, cast-iron spiral staircases, some extremely spacious rooms (others quaintly half octagonal shaped with excellent views) and a well kept garden from where one gets very good views of the Himalayas.
The place is in a densely forested part of the cantonment area, where one feels like being in the middle of a vast jungle (although only 2 kms or so from town). Wildlife and birdlife seems to feel the same. The garden and forest teem with birds and I was told that on a short drive at night chances are that leopards cross your path.
In short, a place to stay for several days with a stack of books (or e-reader) and a pair of binoculars.More
