What our Guest Say
We stayed 6 nights in this home stay with very pleasant clean rooms with en-suite. The views from the balcony were stunning and the home-cooked organic fresh food was a highlight. We only had to mention a food we liked and the wonderful Tulsi included it on the menu! The family members embraced us with warmest love and became like family to us. It is quite a journey through the mountains to get to Gopeshwar, but worth it for the scenery and the authentic Indian experience. Loved it!
