Stayed at this awesome property at Ratnarri. Its very tastefully done and is in the middle of the orchards. I pigged on the sadoo local delicacies among st other scrumptious home cooked meals. I was spoiled by all the pampering one gets from the house staff. Got a chance to pluck apples in the season. Every corner of the house is done beautiful and it has many such corners where you want to just sit and relax or read or enjoy the views. The host Sanjay makes sure the moment you enter you have a stay to remember with all the fine details he has done from the amenities he has put in which are very special.

“Rural solitude and luxury”

Meena Bagh Ratnari is a golden opportunity to reconnect with the pastoral life. This house is ensconced in the midst of an apple orchard. The structure of the house itself is amazing. Parts of the traditional old Pahari home built by the host Sanjay's own grandparents have been retained. The old plastering on the walls has been painstakingly removed to reveal beautiful stone set in place for decades without cement or mortar. Abandoned logs of wood and wooden panels give a distinct mountain character to the decor. Two lavish bathrooms (complete with shower cabinets and huge bathtubs) have been added to cozy bedrooms from the old house. The bedrooms open to three big lounging areas that each frame the valley with a range of glass windows. This rural paradise also has modern amenities - USB charging points tucked away in each area, good wi-fi, extremely comfortable beds to sink into, the works... The house also has a grand new sun-deck. Akin to a glass house, the deck is a great space to while away idle time looking at the apple-trees, listening to the birds and inhaling the wonderful scent of fresh food being cooked in the adjoining kitchen. (Special thanks to Deshraj ji and Mahavir for cooking such delicious food for all the meals including the traditional Sidu.) Sun streams in from every angle in the morning and so does the moon at night. It boasts of a telescope to stare at the moon. Luckily, I stayed over on a full-moon night and another nearly full-moon night when both the orchard and the house were bathed in moonshine. The valley is so quiet during those times one could hear a pin drop. It is ideal for writers and thinkers and generally those looking to spend a quiet time. I was fortunate enough to go there in apple-picking season. The most luscious, succulent, deep-red-colored apples hung from every branch of every tree in the vicinity. Interspersed between the royal red apple trees were the golden apple trees - also the pollinators. Since apple season was in full progress I got a chance to pick some. It is a great time to unleash the little child, climb trees and scramble around on branches picking apples. But apple-picking requires nimble fingers. It has to be twisted and plucked just so. Or else the entire bunch can come crashing down and a fallen apple is lowered in quality and grade. Since the host Sanjay was around I got the chance of meeting his family and watching his packing unit sort and grade the apples. But my favourite activity by far was just setting out a dari under an apple tree (some of them are really old having been planted by Sanjay's grandparents) and reading. Go here if you want to experience the joys of rural solitude and luxury...
