There is something magical about Lord's. You don't realise straight away but it creeps up on you. Don't expect plushness or luxury in the material sense. But there is a luxury in the character , the timelessness and the tranquility here - the wonderful warmth of the hosts, the Lord family who have been running the place for generations, the monkeys on the roof, the verandah with it's dusty books and magazines and a cool Kingfisher beer,the watchful lizard on the wall, the badminton court, the view of the valley, the homely dining room with all meals included.. I fell in love with the place. Matheran is a beautiful place and Lord's is ideally situated and is the perfect home while you are there. Highly recommended.
