 This Farm House was set up by Mr. and Mrs. Chhabra who invite you to share their joy of living simply, close to nature and taking back a good experience. It’s a quiet getaway amidst lush green, perfect for a relaxing weekend just a 110 kms away from Mumbai. 
 
The farm house basically has three types of accommodations; The Mud House, The Eco Cottage and the Brick House. It has another fantastic option of camping outdoors as well...
 
Guest can relax during the lazy afternoons on swings and char-paayes placed under a cool and shadowed tent. Guests are requested to carry their own sheets/ blankets. 
 
Savour the taste of gently spiced food, slow cooked over a wood fire, served in hand-thrown, hand-painted pots. The food here is simple and delicious. Breakfast served includes poha/upma, fruits, herbal tea, regular tea and coffee. Lunch/Dinner includes dal, 2 vegetables, roti, rice, salad, pickle, chutney and curd. Food is prepared mostly from the vegetables grown in that season. They serve only vegetarian food at the farm. 
 
Day Picnics 
The hosts also organise day picnics to the organic farm. Take a trip to the waterfall, enjoy a walk around the farm and join the host for Breakfast, Lunch & tea. 
 
Visiting the potter's or blacksmith village 
For those who don't have their own vehicle, a cab can be called for to go to the village or one can also travel by the local transport. The villages are about 5 kms away.
