5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We stayed here in the last week of May. Hotels in Mahabaleswar proper are pretty expensive, so we were looking for an economical but comfortable option. We were traveling with a young child, so we wanted to make sure the place we pick was hygienic and child-friendly. We chanced upon Shivsagar farm and though there weren't that many reviews at that time to guide us, we decided to go with it because we liked the pictures we saw. And we were not disappointed. The proprietor asked us to call him once we were nearing a particular spot and he arrived there on his bike and guided us to the farm-house which is situated in a small lane. This was a very nice gesture. The rooms don't have A/C but even in May, the weather was very pleasant and the fan was more than sufficient. The room we were given was on the ground floor and had huge glass windows which faced a small garden patch on the back of the farm. Our daughter was delighted with it! May is the end of strawberry season but she got a chance to see many other vegetables growing like brinjal, okra, tomatoes etc. Not to mention the colourful flowers!

The farmhouse does not have a menu but you have the option of going for a Punjabi or Maharashtrian thaali. If you are particular about other food items, you may place a request and they might prepare it if it's possible. We were quite happy to go with Indian options and the food was really hearty and tasty. Not to mention, very cheap! The slight disadvantage is that it takes time to prepare as everything is made afresh. In the morning, we woke up early but couldn't get tea because of this. However, there is a small teashop nearby and we made a trip there...all part of a good holiday, I guess. The farmhouse also accommodated our request of giving hot milk in a flask for our daughter and in general, the staff was very courteous and friendly to us.

We've decided that this is the place we'll pick to stay in if we go to Mahabaleswar next.
