“Serene and Blissful Stay!! Wonderful Hosts”
Reviewed 31 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Me and my husband went to Darjeeling for honeymoon and chose "Auks Farm" as our place of stay with doing a lot of research on Internet.
Nevertheless the reviews did not disappoint us. This place is about 2.5hrs away from Bagdogra Airport and 2.5 hrs away from Darjeeling. If you are looking for a calm, secluded place to stay in midst of the woods, Then this is it.
Hosts Sushmita, Bijaya and Ashish are just perfect hosts.It feels like home and nothing less than that.
The food is freshly prepared with freshly grown veggies of the farm and are served. Absolutely delicious, healthy and it feels so light on stomach.
Do not miss the night view since it is perfect for star gazing.
We went during monsoons and we were not privileged for a Kanchenjunga view.
The rooms are extremely clean, hot water is available since each room's bathroom has a geyser set up.
We stayed at "Laughing owl", the first cabinet and trust me the view is amazing.
There is a separate dining area with a small library set up within.The collection is quiet good with English classics and few Indian Novels. Hammock is also available for the book worms to relax on it with a book.
Overall it was a beautiful experience to stay in a place like this.
I will surely go back again and again.

We went to stay at Auks farm in March 2018. The location was lovely amidst the mountains.
We loved the simplicity of the place. Hosts were lovely, they cooked such delicious meals for us.
My kids loved the small pond with fish and their dog.
We went for a small trek.
Everything was lovely about the place.
Hope to return to just have the lovely meals ;)

Very peaceful stay in a lovely farm with driving distance to kalimpong, gangtok and dargeeling. Food is excellent and hosts (Sushmita & Ashish) are very helpful with itinerarys. Some of the recommended activities are fishing & rafting in nearby river.

“Lovely honestly in the middle of hills”
Reviewed 4 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We were a party of 12 with kids and adults. We had booked all the 4 rooms. Rooms are spacious and nicely done.

We are all vegetarians and Ashish and Vijaya prepared such delicious dishes for us (though Ashish mentioned that non-veg items are their specialities).
They prepared north indian dishes, italian and continental dishes. All the dishes were delicious and authentic and were prepared using fresh ingredients from the farm.
They had a huge buffet spread for dinner everyday that we couldnt stop over eating.
Ashish was also very excited that we had small kids in our group and catered to their needs.

Vijaya also gave us recommendations for shopping in the Kalimong area. We got many cute antique and curios from there.

Bablu was very helpful running up nd down to bring what we need.

Domino the lab mix was very friendly and the kids were especially thrilled to see her month old puppies.

The hill views are amazing from the farm. They also have lots of place for the kids to run around and go for walks. Wish we had time for some trekking to nearby places.

The only concern for us was there were too many insects that entered the rooms and dining area during the late evening attracted by the lights. Ashish told us it happens during hot and dry months. This was a bit uncomfortable especially for the kids. If not for that I would have given 5 star rating.

Thanks for your hospitality. Hope to visit you again sometime.

“Peaceful surrondings, wonderful view”

Auks farm is in the Soreng Hill area. This hill has mostly Buddhist households. Our stay coincided with Buddha Purnima, so we were treated to a colorful procession, and chants echoing in the hills (ps: for us it was just that one day. However, if you're looking for silence in the hills, do check in advance for marriage/ festival season).

The accommodation is tastefully done up. We had booked the whole place. There's an isolated cabin with a balcony. Ask for it, if a private balcony view is important for you.

The dining room, has a collection of books, and a sound system.

Non-veg is the core competence of the Auks Farm kitchen. If you're veg, have a chat in advance, so that you have a sense of the meals that will be prepared during your stay.

We missed doing a bonfire. And that's to do with the unpredictable weather in the hills. On the other hand we had a few hours of a splendid view of the Himalayas. The view from Auks Farm is unique as you view the Himalayas above, alongwith the meandering Teesta (Valley) below.

The charm is to stay at Auks farm and do activities around the farm. Though, Kalimpong is close (c. 1.5h), and Darjeeling is (2.5h) - but account for long traffic snarls in Darjeeling.

Strongly recommend the walk to the Monasteries. It's a good quality road, that has local houses and schools, giving a peek into the local culture.
