What's Unique About It?

Just like its name, this almost 13 acre farmstay is nestled inside dense flaura, next to the calming sounds of Kundalika river.

If you’re the kinds to unwind and embrace all that’s there in the nature, then this one is for you. The stay has two rooms at offer, that can accommodate eight people at the maximum. They have a river room {which is the farmhouse}, and tent in the woods {basically a permanent tent just metres away from the farmhouse}.

They’ve got hammocks hung in the yard, and there’s a lot more that you can do here. A few fun activities like trekking, walking on nature trails, photographing the flaura, cycling around or even go fishing.

And of course, with its proximity to Kolad, there’s always an option for you to go river rafting in the river {we’re telling you, this is the getaway you need}.

They offer two packages: INR 3,500 per person {inclusive of all meals}, or INR 2,800 {cook your own meals}.
