“A trip that one will always cherish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

if you are wanting to have a break from your hectic lives and I would say, Farmer's Den is the perfect stress-buster for everyone. Farmer's Den has everything, the greenery, the pool, good rooms with all facilities, the best food, the stream with a good waterfall and more importantly the Best HOST Mr. Arun Alvares.

We were a group of 21, we played volleyball in the pool, rink football in a grassy-muddy field, and enjoying the waterfall provided by the mother nature herself.

I won't write a big essay as it would spoil the element of surprise, thus end it short and sweet, I would say,

"Visit Farmer's Den and add a wonderful memory in your life".

Thank you Mr. Alvares for your hospitality. We had a wonderful time.

Mr. Alvares just wants you to have the best, while you are within his 'Den'.
Everything taken care of. I must mention his provision for feet-washing as we just arrived.

How we love it, when we get to a spot owned by a friend, and we need not worry about anything; the experience was like that. Mr. Alvares, we'd never experienced a host like you & now you have left us wanting to have all our friends have at-least one experience of your hospitality.

Food: well-cooked, tasty & plentiful; and what a spread! really vow!
Clean dining area, well-stocked with chilled drinking water.
Rooms: spacious, clean, self-sufficient, well-kept
Washroom: super-clean, all-working fittings
(well, not found the above at pricey-er resorts, so..)

Plenty of out-door space.

Oh maan! you must get into this farmer's pool. It's surely like he says,
"just step in once and you'll not want to step out"
That's because its (1)amazingly fesh & clean, (2)sheltered, and (3) cosy :)
'all this and all we needed' ----- for just that refreshing getaway we were looking for.

Folks, here's -------- 'a Host with a Heart'
The 'Farmer's Den' a ---- A Sure Recommend!
........ our 5yr old wasnt wanting to leave.
........ the rest of us did leave,
but will surely look for the next opportunity to revisit with more friends.

Mr. Alvares, you've made us proud!

It was a wonderful experience. It was a business trip, we were 36 people in all. This was our first overnight experience and proved to be worth and sheer fun. The highlight of this place is the swimming pool which is filled with natural rainwater which adds to the beauty. You can spend hours and hours in the pool with no impact on the skin as it has no chlorine mixed. Another positive about this place is the Food. We were vegeterians and cook over there is specialised in cooking Non veg items. But thanks to the efforts of Mr. Arun, the owner of the place, who made it possible for us to have veg food and the food was very nice and delicious.
Feedbacks: 1.The pool could be a little bigger to accompany a huge crowd like 30, 35 ppl.
2. The approach road is real tough for the vehicles in the rainy season.
3. The waterfall near the place, outside the premises is very small, but the force is tremendous.
Overall , this place is sheer fun and it gives more than moneys worth. Family , business trip, friends, social get together will all be a better idea to have in such a place, i.e FARMER'S DEN.
CHEERS!!!

The quaint little cottage, amidst lush greenery and sprawling acres of greens , makes you nostalgic of this destination. The flowing river in the back yard is serene and beautiful. And the stream running at the other end is a view to behold . We enjoyed bathing in the stream as well , well now the stream fascination can be availed only during the monsoons. The food was good . And yes , Arun is very hospitable and ensures his personal attention.

Away from the madding crowd and located in the middle of nature surrounded by river, its a fantastic place to chill out. The staff is extremely cooperative and helpful. Food was above excellent and yummy. Arun-owner- personally supervises the service. Awesome...

good place to chill out weekends. nice and cosy amidst nature at it's best. we had travelled when it was pouring heavily and we could really enjoy the climate out there. nice river, greenary, small but force flow of water.
if you are a nature lover then a must visit destination, we really enjoyed and are planning to revisit by this month end again.
