Guest access
Guest have a free and frolic access to the following spots in our Homestay-

1) Our beautiful terrace where they can sit and relax the whole day gazing at the beautiful mountains and feel the melodic chirping of dozen different birds around. And to specify- on a clear day, our terrace is a remarkably beautiful sunrise point, the kind of for which travelers travel long distances early in the morning in the hills. Over here, you can cherish it just by moving a few steps from your bed to our terrace. You can see the real pics of it in our listing photo gallery.

The wake up alarm at our Homestay is the sweet melodic chirps of dozen different birds in the surroundings which gives a new energy for the day ahead.

2) Our garden cafe having appealingly lazy and relaxing seating with a hamock. We decor and enlighten the beauty of it by some beautiful scintillating lights in the evenings and melodic soft music. You can sit here and relax/work/read a book and also cherish our delicious hygienic and organic home made food.

3) Our common area to watch big screen smart TV.. You can watch movies, matches or any other "socially acceptable" stuff of your choice via your Netflix/Hotstar/Amazon Prime subscriptions on the common area TV whenever it is free.

4) Our common area again having a mini library which has an interestingly selective collection of informative and inspirational books and to enjoy the amazing board games we have for you like scrabble, chess etc.

Other things to note
Few other points of interest and info to make your stay really comfortable and memorable with us-

1) In house food facility- It is rightly said that a healthy outside starts from healthy inside. Food is the most vital ingredient for anyone and while traveling it becomes even more vital.! We have for our guests purely fresh, hygienic, healthy and delicious home cooked vegetarian food which is made from less spices and more love and care- cooked non other than my Mom who has been an expert cook by her hobby and passion since her childhood. The ingredients used by us are of the most premium quality and the best categories such as Olive oil, pure desi ghee, most refined Dehradun Basmati rice etc.

Breakfast- There is one Indian and one Continental breakfast as per the menu of the day and it changes everyday among the 5-6 varieties we have. It can be ordered at as low as just Rs 125/plate.
For Lunch/Dinner- there are three types of Indian full coarse meal platter (starting at Rs 140) as well as a few of our exclusive a-la-carte dishes in dal, curries and vegetables etc.
Apart from that we also have some other really delicious Indian and International cuisines in snacks as well as mains (Our specialities- Pakodas, Macroni's, Sandwiches and Pizzas), some light and local home made dishes like Dal Khichdi / Veg Cheela etc, different variety of local teas and other fresh home made beverages.!

Our food prices are the most economical compared to any decent restaurant in town despite we using the best quality of premium ingredients.
All our food is prepared completely fresh, therefore it is requested to order well in advance (atleast 1 to 1.5 hr) for Lunch/Dinner to allow us time to make it the best for you. Tea and Snacks will always be instantly available.

NOTE- For guests preferring to have non veg food, you can order the same from outside (all online ordering platforms like Swiggy and Zomato deliver at our doorstep) and have it in our open lounge on the terrace provided you make sure to properly and neatly bin all the left overs. Also there are dozens of good restros / cafes / food trucks serving non veg in walking vicinity of our Homestay.

2) Location of our Homestay and ease of accessibility and travel for any traveler- Our Homestay is fortunately very strategically located at a perfect point for any traveler in the Doon valley. Along with being in the hustle free calm and tranquil surroundings, it is also in very close proximity to the travel destinations of Dehradun such as the Robbers cave (4.5 km), Sahasthradhara (5.5 km) etc. Being on the foothills and route to Mussoorie, Mussoorie is just a tea break distance from our Homestay (45 mins ride/20km). You can easily do a relaxing day trip to Mussoorie and be back to our Homestay by the evening. Public transport is easily available for local Dehradun as well as Mussoorie at 1 min from homestay. Also OLA cabs ply here very regularly. And we also arrange for cabs for Dehradun local travel/Mussoorie/Haridwar/Rishikesh at very competitive prices than all private cab providers.

Another Important connectivity to our Homestay- There is one bus terminal just 2 kms from our Homestay (5 mins ride)- that is Dekyling Bus Stand on Sahasthradhara Road, Dehradun. Volvo buses to Delhi, Manali, Dharamshala ply from and to this bus stand every night. You don't have to travel all the way to ISBT for that.

NOTE- Based on the above if you are coming via bus to Dehradun from any of the mentioned places, while booking your bus on redbus/any other portal- select the dropping point as Dekyling in the filters and book the bus appearing post this filter. You will be dropped very close to our Homestay saving the higher Auto/Taxi prices from the main ISBT.

Apart from that, trains are the best mode to travel to Dehradun if you are coming from some short distance within 500kms. Railway Station is 9-10km from our Homestay. You can get autos from the station or OLA cabs. The destination to be told to Autos is near "Sai Temple on Rajpur Road" (we are just 1min from Sai Temple). The prices vary from Rs 200 to Rs 250. Anything higher than this can be bargained well. OLA cabs are always the best options but for catching an OLA, you would have to come out of the main exit of the Railway Station as the OLA Cabs signals don't catch up inside the station.

For Long distances travel to Dehradun- There is direct air connectivity from all major cities.
To reach our Homestay from the airport- you can take a prepaid taxi from the airport authorities government prepaid taxi counter on the airport exit and again tell the destination as Sai Temple on Rajpur Road. The Dehradun Airport is 40km from city centre but our Homestay is connected via a short lush green scenic road to the Airport at a distance of just 25km. It is a 50 mins drive and the prepaid taxi would charge approx Rs 900-1000.

3) The breathtaking view from our terrace- This is really eye catching. You can laze around on our terrace the whole day gazing and cherishing the mesmerizing and enthralling nature around having a exquisite harmony of mountains, sweet melodic birds and the magical pleasant breeze of fresh air totally free of even a minuscule stint of pollution and noise.

4) The extracurricular facilities we have- our additional interesting facilities such as the mini library having the highly selective collection of informative and inspirational books, interesting board games such as scrabble and chess etc, FREE WIFI in the house and our beautiful garden cafe with a refreshingly lazy and relaxing ambiance are the other things which will impact the stay and make it memorable.

5) This is a request and a don't at our Homestay- The aura of our Homestay lies in its serenity and it would be really charismatic and truly meditative if you try and inhale the magical breeze here BEING SOBER. Still, if you wish to consume the vicious syrups called "Alcohol", we request you to kindly refrain it in the Horizon Homestay premises. In case, if you are a silent drinker and you are 100% sure that your drinking won't be noticeable and visible to any other guest or us in the Homestay and it won't disturb the calm and peaceful decorum of the Homestay- you may do that in your room.

Smoking is allowed in the open areas of the Homestay such as terrace and garden which are just next to all rooms.

6) We have self wash laundry facility in which the guest may use our washing Machine and required surf is provided by us. This facility is available at a minimal utilization charge of Rs 150/lot. Guests may please use this facility for doing their laundry.
