Set amidst dense cedar and pine forests, Spirits Unplugged!!! is a peaceful, relaxing and photogenic farm retreat with a mesmerising view of the Himalayas - far from the hustle and bustle of city life. We are a newly setup organic farm and fruit orchard in the himalayan countryside, an hour and 15 minutes drive from Shimla on the Naldehra - Basantpur - Rampur road.The newly built stone cottage at the farm sits perched on a hilltop overlooking a majestic valley ... with breath taking views of pine forest slopes, a waterfall and organic farms. Ideal for couples, nature lovers, families and adventure enthusiasts alike, it allows one to get away from traffic and noise of our modern lives. The cottage is available year round with each season showering its own delights - but the cold period from Jan-Feb is not recommended for our older guests.At the cottage, you can catch up on sleep in one of the 2 spacious and tastefully decorated bedrooms, or relax in the hot tub in its attached modern bathrooms. Refreshed and rejuvenated, you can enjoy your favorite beverage gazing out at the amazing valley vistas from the large living room windows, or catch up on your favourite TV serials / movies on the large LCD in front of a roaring fire. The master-chefs amongst us can work on that perfect entree in the ultra modern kitchen - replete with a microwave, grill oven and coffee maker. Or If you are the really adventurous type in the kitchen, you can bake a pizza in the wood fired oven or grill on the BBQ pit. Happily fed - you can lazy away the afternoon napping on the hammock and spend the evening enjoying the cool breeze huddled around a bon-fire in the patio.If the above does not sound like you - feel free to pick from the list below or invent your own activities around the farm - the possibilities and endless.Things to do in the area:1. Relax in the middle of nature with beautiful scenery and birds around you. 2. Pick local produce from the farm and have the caretaker cook them for you into a delicious meal. 3. Enjoy a picnic next to a majestic waterfall - located at a 5 minute walk from the cottage. 4. Enjoy a day trek to Shali Peak - the highest peak in the Shimla region, enjoying majestic views of the himalayas. 5. Enjoy a round of golf or horse riding at Naldehra Golf Course - an hour drive away from the cottage. 6. Enjoy rafting and soak in therapeutic sulphur springs at Tattapani - an hour drive away. 7. Many other places to discover.You will have the services of a full time caretaker to whip up delicious meals from the local produce, and ensuring you are well looked after. Any reasonable special requests for facilities and cuisine will be cared for to the best of our abilities. Oh - and for the likes of us who can't do without FB status updates, the cottage does have wireless high speed internet connection - but its reliability depends on the mood of the local linesman.
