Kopargaon is a small place. The Halt here is only for Shirdi pilgrims....Just outside the station you get plenty of share taxies to take you to Shirdi.

Shirdi has many hotels and lodges, so finding accommodation will not be a problem. However, If you are going on public holidays/Weekends it will be expensive.

During my last visit we stayed at Sai Tulsi, near Sai Udyan Building. It's a small new hotel and is near to the temple. It's run by friendly Gondkar brothers.

4 days are enough for this journey. Do not forget to visit Shani Shingnapur......
