Services were too good. The staff is very nice and do care for their guests. The food was delicious with the homely experience. The room was warm, equipped with all the needed facilities. They have an activity room and attic space that kids liked.
It is a place for people who want to stay away from concrete and crowd. This is very close to nature and we loved the place. We also went for short walks around the property and it was an amazing experience.
I was little sad to see many upcoming properties coming in the area which may make this place crowdy as well. Also, remember the best time to visit is summers. We went in Jan timeframe and it was little uncomfortable with kids.
Summary: one of my best stays with excellent support team and mouth-watering food.
Best Service ever...
on Jan 16, 2018
The service experience began a day prior to us checking in to The Mahasu House, when Lalit called to inquire about our check in time and meal requirements. That itself was so pleasant.
Lalit was an absolute star, he along with the rest of the team ensured that they completely make up for the lack of snow(the real reason we went to Shimla) with some delightful service. When we decided to take a stroll to the houses below, he actually walked along with us, explaining to us the place and telling us about the current situation there. He stayed with us for almost an hour.
He doubled up as an advisor, telling us exactly what to do in Shimla, during our stay.
The speed of service was also good. They were there for every need that we had...
The food was personalized, homely, sumptuous and fantastic. The experience of having your breakfast and dinner on the large dining table was super nostalgic. Especially the candlelight dinner that we had along with another family. The hot phulkas and the tasty fish curry were out of this world....
The room with the mountain view is something and I could imagine that if it were to snow, it would be even more breathtaking. The electric blankets, radiators and heaters kept us warm. Great idea to have the radiator in the bathroom as well. I only wish there was a bath tub in that room. They may want to upgrade some of the old furniture that's breaking down or need repairs like the side table and the TV unit table.
The recliner sofa is great idea.
Like the games room and the attention to detail in the lobby room.
In only wish that they had some better quality toys in the attic play area. It is a great set up, however the toys are all broken down. Though it didn't make a difference to my daughter...she enjoyed that room.
I will definitely return to this property again. With a larger group...
Please note that this place is cut of from the main city so pack accordingly. There is another 40 room hotel coming up next door. So this place will now have to compete even more. No work on the service...but maybe a little more on the infrastructure and facilities....without compromising on the quaint nature of this hotel.
Family Stay at Mahasu House
on Jan 5, 2018
Comfortable, cosy and beautiful experience with amazing staff and facilities.
Rooms with heater, thermostat and all facilities. Ask if you need something of your choice. Limited food menu but you can request previous day whatever you want and they will prepare it.
Luxury in the Himalayas, Mahasu house is an experience.

Before booking with Mahasu House, I was extensively searching for a property near Shimla which is away from the crowds, in a quiet location, in the wilderness, luxurious and a place where we can relax. Mahasu House was exactly what we needed. I visited this magnificent property with my wife in December 2017. To be honest, I can't describe how satisfied we were with Mahasu House, be it location, service, food, housekeeping, cleanliness, room decor and size, etc. Everything was so perfect.
When in/around Shimla, I would always stay with Mahasu House.
Amazing place. A Must Stay!!

We stayed from 20th to 22nd Dec 2017. No Snow at this time (at least this year). DO NOT think twice and if visiting Shimla then do stay at Mahasu House. We recommend at least 3 night stay and day trips to Kulfri (25 mins by car), Naldera (25 mins by car) and Narkanda (2 hours by car but worth a visit to see snow and Hatu temple) from Mahasu house. Everything about this place is fantastic. Rooms are good, spacious and view from the room is amazing. The best part is the home made food which is out of the world. The people here are very courteous, helpful and ready to do anything to make your stay memorable. 10 mins walk from the hotel there is a Forest road which is good for a morning or evening walk. The hotel also has an Artic (kids play atrea) which is small, nice and cozy. We were the only guest in the hotel during our stay but we loved every moment. The hotel arranged a Bon Fire and barbeque to make our stay even more memorable. The hotel Owners Mr.Anil (Local resident of Shimla) also paid us a visit and you can certainly take some advise from him regarding places to visit.
OVERALL DO NOT MISS MAHASU HOUSE IF VISITING SHIMLA!! The true beauty of Shimla is not in Shimla but the places in and around Shimla. Shimla is good for its historic reasons.
