These notifications come anytime, disturbing our mental balance day and night, right? Don’t you crave for a weekend where you don’t want to click and upload Instagram perfect shots, and just be at your ease?

An old, yet so fresh, smell of wooden floors gives you sweet comfort inside your room. This 100-acre estate has organic farms, livestock, pine and oak trees, a small dam, exotic flowers like gladiolus, a small automatic flour mill, and river Kalsa graciously flowing through it. Adding to this, the scrumptious pahadi meal, a huge mango tree in the compound and an adventurous Bhotiya dog which would not stop trekking with you, are the other delights of coming along for a vacation to this place.
