I visited the place on 21-Sept-2019 for 1 night. The place is really nice and calm. The staff behaviour is very nice. The food is like very homely. The room and attached bathroom are neat and clean.
This place holds the natural beauty of rural area. One who wants to spend rural calmness and beauties, must visit here.
I have chosen the time to see the Kash Flowers beside the Ajay river bank and the place have not failed me. Lot of local birds are seen in the morning which seem missing these days from nearer to urban area.
I find only one drawback though that cannot be a reason for avoiding the place. The final 500 meter’s (May be even less than 500 meter) road condition is terrible. I hope it should be improved pretty soon.
