“True to its name”
Reviewed May 29, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

This property, no Home, is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at and is as true to its name as you can imagine. I like my peace and quiet and this place ticked all the right boxes.
Off the beaten path and tucked away from view this has just the right mix of homely and hotel with an extremely courteous staff.
This place is perfect for those who want to get away from the daily grind and just relax. The views from the bedroom windows are unbelievable and looks as if a poster has been pasted there. You can spend countless hours sitting in the balcony reading your books or just chatting it having tea or coffee.
Although Shimla is about an hours drive from here, you would not want to leave this place.
We travelled as a family and my 3 year old daughter named this place the "bhalo house" bengali for Good House. We enjoyed our stay here extremely and are already planning our next trip here.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed May 13, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We stayed in this beautiful homestay for 3 days and it was truely amazing experience. Arathi the owner provided us all the needed tips before hand. Quality of food was very good. Dilshad the caretaker made sure that we get whatever we asked. He had to struggle to get mushroom but somehow managed to get it. Rooms and bathrooms are very clean and have very good quality furnishing. We followed the tiny little tips Arathi has written on the wall/mirror . Solar heater is good enough to give hot water to 6 people. Surprise for me was the library. I finished few short stories and some gazals by Galib. Imgine you sitting in a nice beautiful house surrounded by deodar trees, reading books and sipping coffe and the temperature is pleasant 15℃. Isn't it wonderful ? Thanks for your arrangements. I will surely plan for one more visit in few years.

If u want to be in the best of the Himalayas in Shimla.. This is the best place to be... It is an understatement to rate the place as 5... Absolutely perfect..

I have booked this place for my parents in April. The owner Ms. Arati had been very helpful and kind while providing the stay. After my parents come back, they had been completely satisfied about the hospitality received. The food had been awesome and the caretaker Dilshad was very sincere and hard working all the time. The food had been hygenic at all times. I once again extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to Ms. Arati for her kind efforts and excellent hospitality.
Would definitely consider availing the the place again in future.

“Heavenly!!”
Reviewed March 22, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

What can you say when you have the best views, Perfect sunrise and sunset views from the baywindows and the best food. It is truly amazing.The absolutely perfect design of the house is such that the sunlight hits you all day and you can bask in the suns rays. The place has solar heating. We lost power for a few hours and you could not even tell - It was lit by solar power. All rooms had light, the power outlets worked and we even had hot water in the Geyser!!
My hats off to you Raja and Arati! - I am highly impressed.
The chef is very good and can fix the best dishes on demand.
It has big rooms and very clean and big bathrooms that always have hot water.
I got up every morning and curled up on the sofa to watch sunrise
