This wonderful gem, just 300 Kms from New Delhi, is the perfect weekend (or more) getaway. It is around 9 Kms before Nainital but we didn't feel the need to leave the place at all.

It is more of a homestay with a wonderful chef preparing spectacular home cooked meals. All three meals are lavish with ingredients used from the orchard.
We helped ourselves to the Kitchen all the time and even made some sangria with fresh peaches taken from the orchard.
This place, with all its raw beauty is like manna from heaven for photographers. We got some amazing pictures ourselves.

You can walk around the orchard and trust me when I say you will see colours you didn't know existed. It's a beautiful walk and the weather is much cooler due to the greenery and elevation.

The host Rati Singh is amazing and has the most wonderful stories to tell. We were completely captivated by her passion for and knowledge of the estate and every little thing that calls it...

I run a small little tiny company. I brought my team here for our first company offsite. We had such a lovely relaxing time. Working in a city takes a toll on the mind and being here is just the perfect escape. It brought the team closer together.

Rati Ma’am was absolutely brilliant as a host. She was so full of knowledge and stories and mind bending truths. THE FOOD! As city bred people I don’t think we really know what organic means or tastes.

The fibre content is so high that it makes the texture incredible. We trekked, farmed, slept in a forest, cooked, played music, Played Jenga had a quiet drink and relaxed.

The beds are comfy, the house is cozy, the vibe is incredible.
