Versha Is a cottage run by the Khanna family in the region of Nainital. My family (my wife kids 3 & 5 and parents 70 & 75 along with a friend and his 5 year old) visited them during the Diwali break in 2017.. The location is very nice as it is a comfortable 30 min drive from the Naini Lake and Sattal ...They have 13 rooms in all....they have living/dining space both at the lower level as well as the upper level...The rooms are comfortable and modern with clean toilets.
There is ample space around in the property to sit around and relax/ read a book and generally vegetate.
The food and hospitality we experienced at the property was top of the line. I have visited many other air bnb and bnb properties elsewhere in India and abroad but the hospitality we got here was the best ever.
Property is kid and senior citizen friendly ..there isn't much walking involved to get the rooms from the driveway which makes it great for elderly people in the hill, something which has been a problem in the past in the hills.
Both the hosts are lovely people and are there to oversee that you're comfortable during your stay. They have a beautiful garden and a sun room at the lower level which is great if you have kids . Their property is not dangerous for kids to run and play around with ample space at 3 levels for the same. In face the 3 kids with us had a great time with their bicycles which we had carried there.
I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend time away in the hills with their family and be away from the hustle and bustle of Nainital while still being close enough. Can't thank the family enough for having us over. The hosts also arrange pickup from Kathgodam station which is an hour away. Do checkout the My Heart Cafe a 15 min drive from the property.
An amazing stay for the old and young alike!!! It was a serene and tranquil experience !!
The hosts were lovely to say the least!!! A must visit in the next long weekend!!!
Truly a home away from home. We had an awesome stay. It was an amazing experience....an excellent combination of a warm homestay with the comforts of a hotel, amidst the most quiet, serene and picturesque location. Far from the maddening crowds yet very centrally located.
A great place with very cozy and comfortable rooms. The food was fantastic. I strongly recommend this place for families. The hosts leave no stones unturned in ensuring your comfort. Lots of places for kids to play. Totally rejuvenated post the stay and missing the tranquility of natures' work around this place. Absolutely thumbs up!
Wherever you go , that place becomes a part of you somehow.We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.
Versha- literally meaning rain, rain that brings the first whiff of the “ geeli mitti”. Beautiful and serene yet having the capacity to devour you!!! Similarly this beautiful and quaint home away from home is beautiful and serene and devours you in its own beauty!!!
I had never heard of this little town called Bhowali before i visited Versha!!! From the warmth of the old couple Mrs and Mr Khanna to the lovely staff which has been personally groomed by the couple, everything speaks of love , warmth and kindness!!!
Whether you want to trek, read a book, just laze on the grass grounds, or simply vegetate!! This is the perect place for all and more of this !!!
Every bit of my stay was a moment to cherish!!!
When Khanna Aunty is supervising the kitchen for the dishes to be out on time for breakfast ,lunch or dinner, you get the feeling its your Mom who is doing it for you!!! When Khanna Uncle is talking about his plants, his trees, his Versha, you can see how much has gone to bring the place up to what it is !!!
Its a tribute to their daughter Versha , whose touch you can see in every nook and corner of this home!!!
Till we meet again .....
The warmth of home and views to die for.. accompanied with serenity in the air ! Loved every bit of it..from the warm cozy rooms to the open verandahs ! Just what I needed !!
Had a wonderful experience here at Versha homestay !!
The property is huge and beautiful , the rooms are spacious and very clean .
Would strongly recommend this place !!!
