Dune Barr House – The Verandah in The Forest

Matheran, near Mumbai, is a tiny forested hill station and is known for being vehicle free. Situated in this sleepy little hill town is a British Mansion, some 170 years old. This mansion has been serving as a heritage retreat (we are advertently not calling it a hotel or resort) for a long time. So, staying here is like enjoying the richness of forest and hills and exploring a small page out of the colonial past.

Earlier it was called “The Verandah in the Forest” while under different management. Today it is Dun Barr House, however, their restaurant carries the same name. Each room has a private outdoor sitting, and is furnished with colonial-style furniture. However, there is no air-conditioning.
