    Staff is very courteous, food is good as well. But the rooms are very claustrophobic. We booked this place for 2 nights and couldn’t sleep at all the first night. Eventually we had to leave the 2nd morning even though we had already paid for the stay.

    Great location with valley view. Good for a short, peaceful stay. Liked that room has heater and electrical heating for mattress. Would recommend to go in May for Cherry and Jul-Sep for apple harvest. Only reco would be to have a board near property for quick identification but is super close to bus stop. Travel is bit long Gurgaon-Shimla 9 hours + Shimla to Narkanda 3 hours (bus) but 6 hours from Chandigarh.

    My stay was so good that we even extended it by one day. Vipin was an amazing caretaker and he did everything that was needed to be done calmly, never making it seem like a task. The property is beautiful and we felt right at home. Definitely going to visit again

    Damini’s place in this small village of Thanedar is beautiful and well kept. It has a homely and a very warm feel to it. Rooms are well equipped with oil heaters & electric blankets which make the cold nights and mornings very comfortable. Extra points for Vipin for making yum dishes each time!
