““Peaceful & Tranquil””
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Getaway from the city to a pleasant outdoor short picnic or a night stay. Quiet countryside, away from all commercial hustle & bustle in the city. Delicious food(loved Mutton curry the most), very hospitable staff. Entire family can enjoy their stay partaking in activities such as short walks around the garden property, or enjoy sports such as cricket, football, badminton, carom, Swimming etc Or just put up your feet, sit outside your room on the family swings or in your own private veranda sipping on drinks. You can even enjoy the natural swim in the fresh waters given the lake near the farm house. Great place for R&R. The rooms are very spacious, we were a group of 10 office colleagues who stayed in a double room in comfort.

Will definitely plan our next visit in Monsoons!!

This is the only place in the world I have visited TWICE in three weeks.
While the first time round was a neighbourhood picnic, but we loved the place enough to return with complete and extended family, pets et al for 2 days.
Had a blast as expected!!
Swimming in the river to cricket in the open ground, pool games, hammocks, rope ladders and ofcourse Arun's not to miss barbeques. My daughter was seen climbing trees, rolling in the mud and wading in the river.. Pretty good for city slickers like us..
Arun's food and service is outstanding.. With Vinod and gang always ready to provide whatever you need from beer to blankets.
We're surely going back to jump into that river and am gonna ride a bullock cart next time.

We visited the place on 9th March13 and had the best of the time in a long time.Its located perfectly close to the river facing the mountains.The food was excellent and so was the service and the rooms were the best in terms of location and cleanliness.
I happened to have droped my wallet in the room and returned home and then I realized the same and called Mr. Arun to check about it and the response was a positive one and Mr.Arun confirmed that the wallet was there and that I could collect the same from his home(which is at Mahim-Mumbai).I would recomend the palce to all my friends and family and would also want to revisit the palace which would be a record for our group as till date we have not gone to the same place twice.

Your search for the ideal picnic destination stops right here! Having read and heard rave reviews the staff (36) of National Society for Clean Cities-India went for their annual picnic to Farmer's Den on 19th February. It is unimaginable how in the middle of nowhere Arun's Farmer's Den is an oasis of greenery overlooking the picturesque mountains and sparkling waters of the river flowing by.

The Art Teacher's comments, "Agar jameen par kahin swarg hai, toh yahi hai, yahi hai, yahi hai! Jyoti, Pre School teacher remarked, "the vegetarian meal was a wedding feast"! Amita our Social Worker says, "never had so soft rice 'bhakris' before! Deepa swears by the cutlets which were a hit and the plate swipped as soon as it reached the table. Be it the cutlets or the gulab jamuns... there was always more . Vasudha, Pre School Helper, "In all my 25 years, this was the best place I've ever been to for a picnic".

As usual, Arun went out of his way to give us the best time of our life. The arrangements were spot on... music....spacious rooms...clean toilets...drinking water....swimming pool.... hammocks for relaxing...he personally attends to all your needs! Teacher Clara says that most of all it was Arun's personal touch that made the picnic a grand success. He treats everyone like family and asks for everyone's suggestions for improvement. To me, I have found the perfect destination for an outing. Have you????

A group of 20 people from our society in chembur decided to head for farmers den which we came to know from internet.We took a little risk as there was no direct reference and we had visited most of the nearby places.
It turned out to be a great place.The owner Mr.arun alvares was more then helpful.He took care of everyone.Even small member of the age 0f 5 yrs were also taken care of by providing them food of there choice (not discussed in the menu). Non veg food was delicious specially chicken bhakri.Veg food need more delicacies though muttor paneer(fresh)was awesome.
Place has a riverview and we spotted a flock of migrated birds as well as few rare species of birds in the farmhouse itself(12 hours).There were few banana,chikoo,and guava plantation.Highlight was fresh water pool though small but enjoyable.
scope for improvement-1)Name board at the gate

I know its little late but i want to share my experience with all. We'd been here many times. and every time we get good service. Food was excellent. fantastic Barbeque.... Rooms are clean n neat. We celebrate our Diwali and Bhai-duj (Whole family) here couple of years back. Also we'd been here for 31st DEC. Mr. Arun the owner is very co-operative. He arranged crackers for children. The property is big you can play cricket or football..
Swimming pool is actually a small tank but children loved it.
Perfect for families who wants to enjoy nature but don't want to go far from Mumbai.

Room Tip: There are only two bedrooms with large passage outside.
