“Home away from home..”

Piglet - "How do you spell love?"
Pooh - "You don't spell love, you feel it."
And that is precisely the vibe you get while staying with the delightful Sarin family. This was my second stay with them. I felt the warmth and welcome right from the moment I walked in. The room was very comfortable, beautifully located. The aalo paranthas at breakfast are to die for!!. For this a special mention of their wonderful chef.
In a nutshell, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there and would definitely return.
A note: While staying here don't miss the trek to Triund. Its a 7km, 4 hour tough trek but totally worth it. The view from the top is spectacular (have enclosed a couple of pics of the same)
“Loved staying at this home away from home”
After a much exhilarating ride all the way from my hometown which is like about 1700 kilometers away from McLeod Ganj, we wanted a place to crash at which should to say be good enough to relax our butts. Our booking at Homestay was a 11th hour decision. It looked decent and cozy in the pictures.
Reaching Homestay almost in the middle of the night, the owners from the very first minute made us feel that we were meeting a family we've known since ages and not some inn keepers and that we should feel at home.
Sahil and Bhushan, the two lovely chaps who run this place have stories to tell, advises to share and are absolutely fantastic at cooking leaving you smacking your lips and if you are an Asian who doesn't mind getting the fingers messy, then it will be finger lickin' good :P
Their mother will treat you with some good home cooked breakfast every morning that is nothing short of sumptuous and delicious.
We stayed in one of their cottages that was appropriately small and cozy. The bathroom was clean when we came in and had a small geyser to suit to our needs for warm water to bathe with. You get a nice adequately spaced closet to keep your things in. The bed was comfortable and the chilly nights are saved by the soft quilts they give you. The cottage opened to a picturesque view of the valley and the Himalayas. You might want to sit outside your cottage in the morning with a hot cup of coffee in hand and enjoy the view and the brew.
Overall, my stay was fantastic and would definitely recommend lodging here.

My sister and I recently visited McLeod Ganj and had to good fortune to have stayed with the very gracious Sarin family at the Flourishing Flora homestay. For us, this place had great appeal; simple, clean and cozy lodgings nestled mountainside on Dharamkot Road, we enjoyed the walk to and from the town square. The Sarin brothers were extremely courteous and helpful, while their mother Nisha's cooking was delicious! It was delightful to sit in the little outdoor dining area and take in the view of the mountains amid the flowers and plants dotted about the property. I found the location a calm respite from the bustling town square - and the nightly performances at TIPA just up the road provided a pleasant soundtrack for our adventure! :-)
