“UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 16 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

people found this review helpful

I was looking for some off beat location to spend some quality time and came to know about this Home Stay. The fact that it is over 100 years old with traditional architecture itself was attractive.

I reached there in the morning around 7 am. Normally hotels give rooms only by noon. Here, Mr. Ajay, son of Mr. Upredi, the owner of the home stay was waiting at the road itself to take us in. They served us with nice masala tea, which was so great on that chilly morning.

The highlight of the trip was being with this wonderful family. They just treat us like their own family member. There is no question asked or said about money. Whatever requests we made, was provided without even a single word. Cooking our own food along with the madam was a wonderful experience in learning their cuisine.

There is a river flowing down below with crystal clear water. A great place for a nice dip. You walk through their organic farms to reach the river. A real village experience is that they have everything a village have in their own property. The class by Mr. Upredi on bee-keeping was very educative. Seeing cows reminds me about my young age.

Mr. Ajay took me also for a trek to Karkotak, a very hilly area. The trek was awesome. Having packed lunch at the summit was a wonderful experience before descending the hill. I feel descending was much tougher than climbing.

Overall, this place is a HEAVEN and everyone should visit the place and experience the warmth hospitality and love of Mr. Upredi and family.

Oops, my review cannot be complete without mentioning BLACKY....a pure black loving dog who is soo brainy to understand who is the guest and who are not!!. He was with me all the time, wagging his tail, showing his love. Love you blacky!!!

Planning frequent visit to this HEAVEN

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND "SILENT VALLEY" TO ALL

“Amazing stay, wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 15 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is a great homestay to feel the pulse of Kumaon and its wonderful people. We were a group of 6 adults and two children traveling to see hills during monsoon. We reached pretty late due to road blockage and the owners were so generous to escort us from Bhimtal! Next day our vehicle got stuck and the back up arrangement was provided by them at very short notice. The hospitality was very homely. Would love to go back again.

“Very relaxing vacation”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

If anyone wants to get a break from busy hectic schedule, this is the place where you would want to be. Silent valley - the name says it all. Location of silent valley is very apt where you have scenic view of nature from your window. It makes you feel so refreshing when you see yourself so close to nature. Upreti family made very good arrangements for us during our stay including neat and clean rooms, home made authentic food, rental vehicle with driver. Head of Upreti family also spent few hours with us giving us information of places around, his farms and about silent valley. They also took good care of Senior citizens in our family by providing them assistance. Staff of silent valley is very friendly and caring. Places we visited around were nainital, bhimtal, saattal, mukteshwar, jageshwar. There are many other places which we could not visit but will try to make it in our next trip :)
In all it was a very relaxing and energizing experience.

“Beautiful Place away from the hustle bustle of the city”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Its a beautiful home stay which is far away from the chaotic city life. The sounds that you hear is the river, the waterfall and the chirping of the birds. The clouds and the mountains are magnificent when you wake up in the morning and open your eyes to see the natures beauty. If you aren't afraid of the pet dog. he is a charmer and would just greet and accompany you every where on the property.

“We lost ourselves in the lap of nature”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Staying at the silent valley was an amazing experience of both natural beauty and warmth extended by the hosts. The place is truly for the nature loving without too much expectation. The stay in silent valley is home away from home comfortable, homely and caring hosts.
We normally eat very less outside so make only small trips. The food was made to our liking. We extended our trip by a day.
