We had an excellent stay at Idyllic Haven, Gaunap Village, Binsar. The hospitality was beyond expectations and food was superb, particularly the yoghurt... It was a unique experience... staying in a village home with buffalo, cows, goats, dogs and cats ... giving us company apart from the ever-smiling faces of Mr Narayan Singh and his wife JankiDevi.. their son Sunder Singh accompanied us to the place through a steep downhill climb from KMVN-TRH Binsar and all along the way, he told us about the forests around.. during our short stay we got to watch the village lifestyle and enjoyed the Kumaoni food. Unfortunately the weather being not so cooperative, we could not get the panoramic view of the peaks, which is otherwise expected in October.. however, different kinds of birds amused us with their chirps while we sat in the balcony relaxing or sipping tea... this place definitely needs some improvement. The rooms could be a bit bigger with some shelves and the bathroom could be a bit bigger too. There should be a provision of solar lamps in the rooms and a small solar geyser could add to the stay. Also, some alternative route for accessing the place may be explored... since the uphill climb back to Binsar may not be very easy for people above 50. Overall, the place is ideal for a relaxing holiday - a good break from the fast-paced city life.

Village homestay

Well, this one is near Binsar, a 4km downhill trek from the KMVN Rest House Binsar. Check this page http://www.bharathomestay.com/homest...-india-gaunap/

Recently we stayed in a village homestay in Munsiyari - again a great experience...
