This is the finest home stay that I have been to, and this resort can set bench marks on how a homestay can be.
First of all Superb location in the woods , makes it an ideal place, and add to the luxurious maintenance of the resort by the owners. It Makes it an ideal location to spend a day or two. They have a lot of other recreational activities as well, like Mini TT, chess etc for kids to be busy.
There is small trekking route up into the mountains and a small waterfall nearby which adds to the flavor.
They serve homemade food, so it cant be compared to what you get in restaurants. We loved all the food they made, and it is very reasonable priced as well.
Overall a Superb Stay and we would like to visit the resort again. The owners of the Resort Mr. Nischal took good care of us and was more like a friend at the resort. The memories that we had are etched in our mind forever.
