This typical Victorian chalet bungalow located amidst oak and pine forest on the Pontrey hill reflects best what the cottages of Kipling's Dull-housie can offer.
The warmth of the winter sun, the whistling pine needles, the musical rain patters, the cold whiff of winds, the misty fog against windows, the sound of silence, we bet the place has covered all. Let you all be here for every season and every reason to be enthralled by the spectacular setting of the cottage.
Your rejuvenating retreat.

The space
Built in 1935 Malhaar has overhanging eaves embellished with gingerbread trim and a huge hollow attic that makes rain patter musical. It is a double storey chalet. The entryway to the property is a wooden bridge by the retaining wall. The upper portion has two bedrooms with attached baths, a common baithak , a dining hallway and a fully equipped modern sunlit kitchen.

>One of the bedrooms that faces the east is called sunrise. Watch the rising sun snuggling in the bed .

>The other room is on the west. Just a stone's throw away in the pine jungle watch the sunset over Ranjeet Sagar lake. We'll have your coffee and cookie covered watching sunset.

>The chalet is south facing making the front facade always sunny. The chalet has two lawns one being kerchief and the other standard. One could bask in either lawn or the bridge. Equal availability of the lawns for arranging bonfires on request.

>The victorian encaustic floor atop wood is a rarity that adds regality to the cottage. No wonder the road it's located on is called the Rajmahal. There is ample parking space just on the road and the car reaches the main entryway. However we advise you to reckon the road as it has a steep incline. We could arrange for a driver on request .

>The whole chalet has ample heating appliances, fresh linen, ample books, fully stocked kitchen (with all amenities, confectioneries and groceries)*.

>You have complete freedom to cook all you want.

>The space is regularly cleaned and the linen changed each day.

>There are beds for 4 and 2 additional floor mattresses could be provided on request


> A Ministry of Tourism recognized BnB




* stocked just once depending on number of persons booked for. Amount/quality depends on the rate booked at.

The entire upper floor that includes 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a baithak, a balcony , a bridge, a dining area , a kitchen in addition to the kerchief lawn . This whole portion has an independent access and can be locked.

Other things to note

>Please be considerate, this place is our home and not a hotel. We do not approve any indoor smoking. Do try and keep the place clean and tidy. Any unruly, hostile, destructive, or demanding behaviour would lead to intervention in form of penalty or removal.

>The chalet is connected with the main bungalow which is a private property. Please do not trespass.

>The drive to the door front is a steep incline. We advise you to reckon the road first and only if confident of your driving proceed. Other wise you could request us a driver or rather park your vehicle 150mts away on the municipal road

>The last 150mts approach to the property is a downhill descent. It's a hill station after all. While easy to walk down may be strenuous while walking up. This while sure to get you in shape and trim the flab may not be very comfortable for elderly. In such cases we advice you to consider a driver/taxi drop/pick-up.

>The curios on the property are a personal collection. Please be extremely careful with them.

Location

Dalhousie, Himachal Pradesh, India

The place is locate below the pontry mall road which today is called the court road. It is as close and as far from the bustle of the town. Either drive up or walk nearly 150 mts to be mainstream. There you'll have the DC Khanna stores , civil hospital, SDM's offfice. Other time you have your calm surreal setting.
