About Starling Room
A cosy and comfortable room that is perfect for couples, this room has been named and themed after the Starling family of birds, which can be seen frequently around the cottage. The room features huge picture windows offering beautiful garden and mountain views. An extensive patio area in front and a common garden on the side offer ample space to laze about. The Starling Room has an ensuite toilet and comes in a double bed configuration.
Special Note:The Starling Room is located below the Barbet Suite and as there is a wooden floor/ceiling separating them there will be sound transfer between the rooms if there are other guests staying in Barbet at the same time. If that will be an issue for you then please do not book this room. Check out our other rooms here.

Things to Note
- This 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 villa 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.
- Our meals are served as per a fixed menu and at designated times in the common al fresco dining area. Our food is a blend of local Pahari cuisine with northern and southern Indian cuisine influences.
- Lunch on the day of checkin is not included unless requested by guests. Please confirm a day before your checkin date if lunch on day of checkin is required. This lunch will be a simple vegetarian meal.
- Since we are an eco-friendly homestay located in close proximity to protected forests we request you to carry back whatever plastic waste you bring with you as we have no non-biodegradable waste management system on site.
- We provide shower gel, shampoo, towels and house slippers. Iron and hair dryer are available on request. Umbrellas are provided. There is a fridge if anything needs to be cooled.
- Please note that there is no TV or room service
- We do not maintain any stocks of packaged food items like bottled water, soft drinks, snacks etc nor do we encourage their consumption.
- Do note that the village where the villa is located is a bit remote and has only a couple of basic shops which stock bare essentials. The nearest town market is in Bajoon which is 5 km away while the nearest city market is in Nainital which is about 15 km away so please pack accordingly.
- Bookings can only be done by an individual aged 18 and above. Anyone aged below 18 years of age will need to be accompanied by an adult to stay at Fagunia.
- If you would like us to arrange a pickup or drop for you from the Kathgodam train station, then please let us know at the time of your booking.
- Please note that you will need to walk just under a kilometre down a village path from the parking area to the villa and the villa itself is not accessible friendly so if you or anyone in your group has mobility challenges then we do not recommend booking with us.
- The room can accommodate upto 2 people.
- Do note that only Jio 4G and BSNL mobile phone networks work at Fagunia Farmstay.
- We have a range of board games like scrabble, chess, darts, poker, taboo etc available for use on request on a first come first serve basis. Check out all of our little extras that we hope will enhance your stay experience here.
- We will impose a non-negotiable cleaning fee of ₹25,000 if you or your companion(s) smoke inside the cottage or in common areas. Designated smoking areas are available outside.
- Early checkin or late checkout can be considered upon request. Please inform in advance. While our checkout time is normally 11:00 am, we are happy to consider a 24 hour checkout provided we have no other bookings that day.
