Landour is Mussoorie’s calmer counterpart, often preferred by those who'd rather be away from the throngs of tourists to enjoy the peace and beauty of nature instead. Located conveniently in this town, Deodar Estate is a 20 acre property consisting of two cottages that are offered to guests. Surrounded by lush forests and equipped with modern amenities, this stay gives guests the best of both worlds. Walking along a nature trail and bumping into Ruskin Bond is a usual occurrence here! The Space: Let us walk you through the space. BEDROOMS - The cottage has 2 bedrooms – 1 on the ground floor and 1 on the first floor. - They are called Blue Umbrella and Island of Trees inspired by Ruskin Bond’s books. - Both rooms have double beds. - Heaters are provided in both rooms. - Both rooms have at...Landour is Mussoorie’s calmer counterpart, often preferred by those who'd rather be away from the throngs of tourists to enjoy the peace and beauty of nature instead.

Many Ruskin Bond fans, however, choose to walk around outside, in the hope of bumping into the man himself! HOME TRUTHS While we do promise you a welcoming home and a great stay, here are a few things we’d like to mention so as to ensure there are no unpleasant surprises later! - A single bonfire is charged at Rs. 1000. A maximum of two bonfires can be lit up simultaneously. - Barbecues are only provided for groups of 4 or more. - There are unpaved paths you might have to walk on, and some steps must be climbed to access the rooms, hence this stay may not be suitable for those with mobility challenges. - Although pets are allowed, they need to be supervised at all times for their safety, as it is a forest area. - There may be other guests occupying the other cottage in the same compound, roughly 200m. away. GUEST ACCESS The guests have access to their cottage and the lawn.
