The space
Travelers are welcome to stay in the cozy and private bedroom with attached private bathroom, kitchen and peaceful garden in my home located 3 km from the centre of town. Close to restaurants, public transport hubs, Russet homestay has everything the visitor needs as a base to explore Shillong and the surrounding traditional communities that remain largely unexposed to tourism.
I am happy to be your host and share with you my tips for travel around the towns and villages of the culturally and geographically diverse state of Meghalaya.
I have been a working for many years in the state's rural development and I have travelled and worked with community people in even the most remote parts of the state. Nothing would make me happier than supporting my guest to develop itineraries so that they can experience the unique natural and man-made wonders including our matrilineal societies, suspension bridges made of plaited vines(living root bridges) and other wonders. I can help guests to arrange transport and accommodation for a reasonable price in this area in which tourism services remain undeveloped.

(Website hidden by Airbnb) have a lifelong commitment to supporting the development of rural communities in my state. I love to research and share the traditional cultural stories associated with communities and places throughout Meghalaya as well as ponder the changes taking place our society. Having travelled widely in India and other places myself-I have had the opportunity of meeting many travellers and sharing stories and laughs. This has motivated me to set up my own B&B so that I can in someway return the easy and relaxed hospitality I have enjoyed from other hosts and meet new people.

During your stay

Your privacy will be completely respected but I like to invite all my guests for a chat and a laugh. I would like to provide an orientation to this most diverse State of Meghalaya for new visitors, and swap stories about our culture and places with those who have perhaps travelled here before. I'm keen to help you to put together detailed or loose itineraries, source transport and accommodation and access to community events and activities through out the State at the best possible price.
