I had an amazing experience right from the booking to leaving the place. Due to work constraints I couldn’t book until very late and the owner Atul was always prompt in responding even late at night. The cottage is located in a beautiful Estate in Thanedar offering one of best views around. The place itself is a short 16 km drive from Narkanda and offers much better views and unparalleled peace and tranquillity to the weary city dweller. Though my stay wasn’t very long but I couldn’t help but notice how nicely the place has been kept. The wooden interiors of the house have been done up tastefully and the bedrooms have a lovely feel to them too . There is a huge terrace out at the front where one could spend hours just gazing at the mountains. The hosts go out of their way to make you feel at home, in the limited time I was there they made me feel like family. The food is amazing too and aunty especially prepared a himachali specialty for us. If you’re a dog lover like us you’re sure to enjoy here, they have a gorgeous tibetan mastiff, Alsa, and if you don’t like dogs as much Alsa would sure win you over in a jiffy. All in all it was a lovely experience and I regret not spending more time there and would definitely head back at the first given opportunity. Although I had some trouble locating the place, but it was primarily due to my own mistake, though some signage on the way leading to the cottage may have helped.
If you need hazel free and amazing experience to cherish, Mountain Travelers are the ones to look at. They are simply good in the service and support they provide while travelling. I had travelled with them to Leh on a road journey; the experience I had was great and will definitely travel again with them.

I ventured out with Atul and 15 other snow drive junkies in January 2015. The way Atul conducted the entire drive scene was really exceptional. Leading the team himself, he was always ready with his wench-integrated Gypsy to rescue.
I was at Deodar Cottage to welcome the New Year 2015. The cottage is more like a home. The serene surrounding, well maintained orchard and the fantastic party is something I would be back for this New Year’s Eve too. Thanks guys for all the hospitality.
Deodar Cottage is a place to find inner peace and to feel the nature at its best. Forest around the cottage is mesmerizing and the walk through it is something which you will always remember.
Last year I planned my summer holidays with my best friend to Shimla. I never had an idea how much fun I will be having in this trip. Initially we planned out journey till Shimla but there we met few friends who were travelling to Chitkul with mountain traveler. So we planned our journey further into Himalayas with them. This was one of the best times I ever had. It felt like I was travelling with my family and the amount of thrill and joy I had with these people can’t be described in words. I will make sure that this summer also I plan my holidays to kotgarh and much further.
