The Valley View Homestay, Ranikhet

Homestay or hotel for tripper is completely one’s own choice. Homestay is exactly like B&B i.e. Bed and Breakfast. In Home stays you are accommodated as a guest in a private room with an en-suite bathroom and all sorts of luxuries. They are usually run by the homeowners who enjoy welcoming and interacting with people. Homestay does offer some advantages over hotels along with comfort. One gets to know more about the local tradition and culture as compared to staying in the hotels.

At Ranikhet all types of accommodations are available and for the first time, I choose Valley View Homestay Ranikhet over hotels to have a different feel. The gesture offered was up to the saying Athithi Devo Bhava which means the Guest is God. The staff and homeowner both considered an honor to have us as a guest at their place and they made all efforts to make our stay cozy and comfortable.

  1. Your accommodations is very relaxing and homey. I really like that it is surrounded by lots of greens! It’s like you are vacationing with the nature.

  2. Beautiful residence. I am sure the food is delicious especially since it is made from local produce. I would LOVE to get lost and unplugged in this place for about 1 week before going back to reality. This is also my first time hearing about Ranikhet. I looked up the homestay, and I will add this location to my list of places to go when i visit India!!

  3. Wow! A place worth spending a day or two… may be even more. like the interiors and their porcelain display by the window. Such a good thing that they use local produce for food.

  4. Ranikhet is beautiful. The homestay looks amazing. The fresh produce would taste so amazing. Moreover, you must have got to know a lot about the place. Definitely calls for a couple of days of getting away to this picturesque place.

  5. This looks like a perfect home away from home Suruchi. I am thinking to visit Ranikhet sometimes soon. Will check it out. Was wondering where to stay when I go there.
