The Brook at Karjat!

The entrance to the farm house

Nestled in nature's lap, 3 hours away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai, in the wilderness a midst a flowing river with lush greenery and pure oxygen in the air is situated The Brook. Wow what location!

WHAT WORKED FOR ME:

The Brook is a warm cozy home of 5500 sq feet area owned by the very enthusiastic, talkative and world traveller Mr Raman Khanna and his wonderful wife, an ex-film actress Swapna. The place has 4 bedrooms with attached bathrooms and one living room plus one dining area with one indoor and one outdoor kitchen so definitely it was comfortable for me and my family (we were around 7 of us) and not to forget, Swapna also made sure that we get enough mattresses, pillows, sheets and blankets to feel comfortable.

This place as promised had an in-house cook, a caretaker, maid and a servant boy to run errands hence making it more like home and 24 hours supply of food, drinks and snacks.

The wilderness of Karjat Village with picturesque mountains all around and a free flowing clean, fresh river through the farm wherein you can go and have a bath was something extraordinary experience. The only hitch is the market which is 8km away, so getting something in emergency was a little task.
There aren't any pick up or drop facility by the farm, so get your own transport.
