About Fagunia Farmstay

Literally hand built stone by stone by a Kumaoni farmer and now lovingly rebuilt and expanded by a Pahadi-Telugu couple, Fagunia Farmstay is a special mountain homestay to experience and an epitome of subtle charms and understated luxury. With one spacious suite and two cosy rooms, the sprawling home is perfect for a family or a large group wanting complete private access to the ~2 acre farm estate. Surrounded by a beautiful forest and a seasonal waterfall on two sides, farms on another side and with spectacular views of the mountains of Pangot and Nainital in front, we are sure you will fall in love with the place like we did. Nestled in a quiet little hamlet and accessed by a beautiful but adventurous drive through an enchanting forest that is full of birds and British era arched bridges over seasonal waterfalls, this little piece of heaven is about 15 km from Nainital.

This is a perfect place for discerning travelers who are looking for something off the beaten track, literally. Go on long walks in the surrounding sun dappled forests in search of colorful birds and butterflies. Lend a helping hand on the farm. Observe the unhurried pace of village life. Write your next great book or come up with a life changing idea. Or just find a quiet corner, put up your feet, stare at the beautiful vista, relax and slowly let go of all your worries. Fagunia Farmstay is an oasis of bliss and peace amidst verdant greens and earthy browns. The villa is situated on a verdant farm estate with banj, pomegranate, kafal, malta, lime, bhimal, peach, apricot and other trees in abundance. Hope your stay at this labor of love of ours will help you make memories for a lifetime.

Please note that we are an ecofriendly home, serious about reducing our footprint and living sustainably, and not a resort or a hotel or a villa. We are an owner run and managed small operation. Fagunia Farmstay is a registered homestay with Uttarakhand Tourism.

Layout

Uniquely built across different levels, Fagunia Farmstay has one spacious suite and two cosy double rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. None of the rooms are interconnected. The layout of the homestay expands on but largely follows the original layout of the Kumaoni house that existed on the site to minimize our construction footprint and also reuse most of the original stone and wood. There is a common kitchen and a semi al fresco communal dining area on one side that overlooks the adjacent forest and a large common garden on the front side with an outdoor BBQ station and a wood fired pizza oven. There are also extensive garden and other outdoor relaxation areas with private nooks and niches where you can leave the world behind and imbibe the peace and quiet.

Rooms

Fagunia Farmstay has three rooms, a spacious suite: Barbet and two independent rooms: Starling and Sparrow. Each of the homestay’s rooms are specially curated around a theme and luxuriously appointed and furnished with handpicked antique furniture, furnishings and art pieces to make your stay comfortable and memorable. The homestay is fully solar powered and also comes with many eco-friendly and special features such as solar water heating, sustainable waste management, farm to table produce for cooking and more, which we hope will enhance your stay even further.

Barbet Suite-Middle Level

Located on the middle level of the homestay, the Barbet Suite-our flagship suite consists of an expansive drawing room with a distinctive fireplace and a bright master bedroom with an ensuite toilet and an attic. The master bedroom has an antique queen sized four poster bed. The cute and cosy low height attic sleeping area is accessed through an internal wooden staircase from the drawing room. The attic comes with 2 floor level mattresses and has beautiful views of the pine forest on the opposite hill. Please note that the low height entrance into the attic has no door. Both the master bedroom and drawing room of the suite open out onto an expansive private balcony that offers glorious views of the mountains in front and the valley below. This suite can sleep 4 people maximum including children.

Starling Room-Lower Level

The comfy Starling Room features huge picture windows offering beautiful views of the garden and the valley in front and which also let in ample light. Located on the lowest level of the homestay, the room comes with 2 single beds, an ensuite bathroom and a seating nook. A patio in front and a large common garden on the side offer ample space to laze about. This room can sleep 2 people maximum including children.

Sparrow Room-Lower Level

Located next to Starling Room, the cosy Sparrow Room comes with 2 single beds, an ensuite bathroom and a huge picture window. A patio outside, with views of the mountains and forests and a large garden on the side, is the ideal place to get lost in a book. This room can sleep 2 people maximum including children. Please note that this room may have some dampness during certain times of the year.

Do note that we kept the size of Starling and Sparrow rooms similar to the size as the original farmer’s home rooms that existed in the same location, and therefore these two rooms are smaller in size. This compact size helps them remain naturally cosy and warm during the long mountain winters and cool during the summers.

Pricing

The final price for the entire homestay will be inclusive of all veg meals for the booked number of guests. The base price shown to book the entire homestay is for 4 people with all veg meals included. There will be additional charges per night for each guest beyond 4. We can host a maximum of 8 people in the entire place. Please note that we may require a minimum of 24 hours notice to host guests due to our remote, off the road location. See details below.

  • Fagunia Farmstay is our dream home which we worked on for years to give it its present shape. While we have done our very best to equip the homestay with the best fittings and furnishings to provide a luxury hotel like comfort we request you to be considerate and treat it like your home and not as a hotel. Given its remote location and close proximity to nature, there may be inconveniences that you may face but rest assured we will do our best to offer you a memorable experience.
  • There is strictly no smoking inside the rooms. We will impose a non-negotiable cleaning fee of ₹25,000 if you or your companion(s) smoke inside the rooms or in common areas. A designated smoking area is available in the garden.

  • We use a solar powered inverter for power backup which provides basic light and internet backup for about 4 hours in case of a power cut. In case of longer power cuts, once the inverter runs out of battery, please bear with the power disruption until mains power comes back.
  • We use a centralized solar water heater for providing running hot water in the bathrooms. In case there is no sun during your stay, hot water through a backup heating rod will be provided every morning (8-10 am). To help us save water, please consider taking bucket baths instead of using the shower.
