A great place to stay in the form of homestay - in the land of red soil and Kabiguru Tagore. Mitali Home stay is one of the finnest experience not only in terms of stay but its food, people and ambiance. We stayed in early November in their only suite at annex building which has a private terrace to feel the golden rays of early sun in the morning and a rich wind blowing on your face in the evening. Sip your cup of second flush Darjeeling tea (get your own and make in the attached kitchenette) in the morning at the terrace amidst green Katchapa, Eucalyptus, Rongona and many other trees hearing the birds chirping. Breakfast at the terrace in the main building is another lovely experience. After vising places of interest in and arround Bolpur we made sure to return at Mitali for a mouth watering Bengali lunch. Their well trained cook and also the caretaker (Bijoy) took a good care for each and every of our concerns. The lush garden and well manicured lawn added a good flavour on our 3 days stay. Vegetables, fruits and flowers growing in their private garden were music to our eyes which especially my wife and 10 yr old son liked most during the stay. The quaint, quiet and peaceful stay at Mitali made it more charming during the dinner time when the owner Mrs Dey prepared continental dishes (our family favourites baked prawn and ratatouille) for us with great care. A casual chat with Mr Roy on the dinner table on various subjects around the globe before a goodnight sleep made it worth finishing the day. You cannot retire to bed without turning the pages of one of the numerous collection of books oderly stacked on the bookshelf in your own room. Wake up next morning for a new day a new life at Mitali...I would definetly come back again.
