We stayed at ShivSagar farm house for 3 nights. It was really good experience -
Pros -
Reasonable rates, very good and spacious room, very clean, farm around is great for relaxing, easily accessible with car, friendly staff and owner, lawn for relaxing..overall very good experience. Good facility of milk for children, fresh cooked food (mutton/chicken)
Cons -
Average taste for food, breakfast is same every day, no play area for children, no road map/guide available for the places to visit
Verdict - Very good..!

Room Tip: New rooms on third floor are great with bath tub

I came to know regarding this farm house thru trip advisor and decided to stay there. We stayed here on 4th May for 1 day only but it was a great time to spend here..though it is a small farm house having only 12 rooms, they have all facilities for comfortable stay here..The room photos shown on the websites are exactly same what u will get at the place..Rooms are clean, Spacious, with very good ventilation. They provide very good n tasty food both veg n nonveg. Hotel Staff is very polite & the owner Mr.Sagar is a kind & helpful person..HE just booked 2 rooms for us on telephone without paying any single rupee in high season time there.

Bathrooms are good too..We stayed in room no. 203 n 204. I will recommend this farm house for every one who want sum relaxed n peaceful time in bazaru mahabaleshwar..

Only one thing I will recommend to travellers that dont book room here through any website or agent..just contact Mr.Sagar, the owner and he will do the rest...

We travelled during end of Mar'14 from Pune. Pune was scorching hot so we had our apprehensions on how hot Mahableshwar / Panchgani will be.. but it was really pleasant. Coming to Shiv Sagar Farmhouse, it is located in Panchgani, run by Mr. Sagar. The best part about this farmhouse is the super friendly and helpful staff! We had booked a suite room and it huge. We never expected such a huge room for the amount we payed. More than VFM I would say. Food was pretty good as well. So double thumbs up the Mr. Sagar and his team. Cheers and keep up the good work.

Dear Guest,

It's always nice to read reviews where a guest has enjoyed all that we offer - the ambience at the Farm House; the Room; the service levels; the Room Size. I do appreciate your very kind words and am delighted to read that you had a great stay with us.

Yes Our Room Size Is Too Large, As You Mention Our Room Rent Is Also Moderate As Per Our Room, No One Can Say That We Charge More, Its Challenge.....

Thank you also for your kind words on our Farm House, Lavish Rooms, and service staff who looked after you while at the Farm House

I had stayed this place from 3rd May to 5th may in Suite room and trust me the view, Ambience, Food, Service of this farmhouse is just superb! all staff people are very polite and co-operative and well mannered. Owner of the hotel Mr. Sagar is also very kind and gentle and co-operative as we had reached hotel early morning 6am and checkin time is 11am but they gave us one room to stay till our check-in.

I wish really great luck to Mr. Sagar and thanks alot for making our trip very memorable !! will again come soon for a stay :)

This beautiful farmhouse is located at a serene nice location having strawberry farm in Panchgani. Best thing about this hotel is their staff behaviour. You will not feel like you are at an unknown place and you will find a homely treatment in farmhouse. Mr. Sagar key person behind this farmhouse and all the staff members are very helpful and humble. They helped me a lot in making my trip memorable.
Tip for travellers-Do remember to take left turn towards Bhilar. It’s hardly 1-2 minutes driving distance from the left turn toward Bhilar main road (while going) and many other hotels are in the same row so its not a secluded area also. Overall this is a nice place to stay in Panchgani for a small family/couple trip to Mahabaleshwar/Panchgani.
One small tip for Mr. Sagar that I could not resist, Plz get some new set of bed sheets.Thank you for your hospitality and I would like to stay again at your farmhouse.

Right from booking procedure to checkout, everything has been awesome at Shiv Sagar Farmhouse. The owner himself will help, assist and guide you throughout your stay. Nevertheless, the staff is always prompt on their toes to cater to any of your needs. The best part is the personal touch in every needs you have and they put in their best efforts to fulfill it. Good rooms, excellent interiors, wonderful environment, prompt service, sit-out balcony, strawberry garden, away from the huss-buss of the city or the typical noisy environment, etc.... and the list goes on... I stayed in the executive suite for 2 nights and it was worth the money and most important 'my time'... I would recommend shiv sagar farmhouse without any hesitation.
Quick feedback to the owner/management:
Consider having Air Conditioning. (thought it is a cool climate but notorious people like me definitely need A/C.)
24 hours hot water supply is a must. (hot water supply until 12 noon is fine but when you have bath tubs then it's a challenge to enjoy the amenity provided and people back from their tour the entire day would definitely need a hot water bath.)
Slight upgrade in Food will be great... (It is good to see that you serve homely cooked food and I would recommend you to keep it the same way but just few additions and a bit of improvement in taste will be great.)
But all these three feedback's do not stop me from visiting you again...

Room Tip: Executive Suites are good ones with a slightly elevated view... But the owner will help you get the...

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Shivsagar Farm House!

Such encouraging comments from a young reviewer like you are so inspiring for a new entrant like us. It makes us strive to do even better and at the same time provides an insight into the things desired. Taking a cue from your comments, we are speeding up the process of adding more Facilities. Hopefully, next time when we have you around, we are better prepared on this front.

It is always satisfying to know when those who stay with us feel that they got much more value than what they paid for.. and the same thing happened with you.
The team here strives to deliver a service which is genuine, discreet and at the guests pace.

Thanks and warm regards!

It was a family trip for us and we wanted to stay in a decent place with basic cleanliness and hygiene and well cooked food. We chose this hotel after seeing the reviews of Tripadvisor. Honestly this was a good choice and we did not repent. Few things: Keep in mind that this is in Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar is a good 16 kms away. Hence it would be great if you have your car. The property is very close to the Mapro farm, around 3 kms before Mapro, The rooms are very spacious, clean and well kept. As soon as you reach you will be greeted with the freshly grown strawberries. The warmth you get here is very nice. Do not expect a lot of varieties in the food.Order the basic maharastrian or Kolhapuri chicken. Do not order fancy items. The points are at a fair distance. The hotel is basic but very well kept and is run with a lot of warmth and good heart. Try to book the hotel from their site or agoda. Rates are quite attractive and at that price this is a steal. Great work keep it up.

Room Tip: Chose accordingly: If you intend to take a decent room with no frills (since you intend to use the...
