Retreat to a quiet corner of Nainital district, into the arms of Naukuchiatal, which has the deepest lake of the region and as yet very laid back and peaceful. No jostling crowds, no Mall road, no Traffic jams. Near enough to all usual attractions of boating, zorbing, canoeing, Paragliding, dirt racing, ziplining, horseriding and far enough to be pin drop silent after sundown. Go trekking in forests, fishing, witness village life right next door or just LAZE!

The space
Nainital was my birthplace and my grandparents home, hence RAABTA = an old connection or old love. This is not a hotel but our cherished home. Situated deliberately 900 metres from the lake. Our personal bedroom(on first floor) is locked and rest of the huge property ( 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms/ kitchen(with electric chimney)/ drawing/dining/ huge porch/1 lawn and 1 mini farm/ kids play areas on both floors/ garages/ huge Yoga/ meditation or conference/meeting room on the mezzanine floor is open for use as if it's your own home. Please be responsible to the property and to the local environment and forgive any lapses since we are not professional hoteliers. Please conserve water and electricity. The maid will do the room cleaning everyday and tea and basic breakfast will be served in the common area(drawing room) at around 9 AM. Do not expect Hotel like menu choices/Butler/laundry/ room services. Maid is considered part of our family and we expect you to do the same ! Use of Mezannine floor and parking is free. Lunch, dinner ARE ON YOUR OWN. Please see the house rules in your room(s). Food can be ordered for home delivery also. Menus/names and phone numbers pf local restaurants have been kept in common areas. Please do not demand for anything separately from the caretaker. She will not be able to accommodate any food/menu requests. DO NOT TIP HER. You can cook in the dry stocked kitchen by yourself since all amenities are available at an additional charge of 300 Rs a day to cover for the gas, condiments/spices,Fridge/RO/Chimney/ utensils/crockery/basin/soap etc. Fresh consumables like milk/butter/tea/jam/atta/daal/ghee/
bread/vegetables etc you have to get yourself. Alcohol and cooking non vegetarian is strictly not allowed. Do not hurry or worry and relax !

Guest access
Last 500 metres off the main road are tricky and steep. Do not take low slung big luxury cars but high clearance, small cars/SUV types. Turn by turn description you can get once booked. GUESTS HAVE TO CLIMB UP 1&1/2 FLIGHT OF STAIRS TO THE GROUND LEVEL. Old and handicapped persons may find it difficult/tiring. (PLEASE SEE PICS OF STAIRS).(The garage and mezzanine floor are below ground level).
All tiles and stairs marble is rough/anti skid.
Last 100 metres to property is a gravel road where construction activity of homes is going on( debris on road).
Garage parking is covered and of 2 cars capacity. And lots of open spaces for more cars nearby.
Lots of trekking tracks right behind our house.

Other things to note
Use of Mezannine floor and parking is free.
No strict Hotel like check out timings but do maintain decorum and consider giving way to the next incoming party please.
The maid does not live on the premises and will not be available round the clock( just like your home in the city). Please be courteous to her and her family. Her kids play regularly in our gardens.
Do carry a photocopy of your IDs since there are no xerox machine nearby ! It will be needed at check in.

Location

Nainital, Uttarakhand, India

Lake view from bay window and balconies and all rooms. Village on the backside with real cows,roosters, hens, farms, fruit trees and a Buddhist monastry. Distant giant Hanuman statue mandir, early morning faint strains of Bhajans and shlokas can be heard in the silence. On clear days, sky full of Paragliders can be seen in the distance. Unmatched views of surrounding hills and view of hills of Bhimtal and Nainital ( Camel peak/Lariakanta). At the backside of Raabta is visible the religiously important CHHOTA KAILASH PARVAT( long drive away in the distance!)
Law & order (safety) is not an issue.

Senior Cardiologist in NCR, with a passion for Kumaon Hills . Likes to host like minded people who share similar thoughts about leisurely holidays in quiet and calm natural surroundings. Amateur trekking, book reading by the bay window, lazing in the sun, feet dipped in the lake , fingers running through the dogs fur, complete silence except for the cool breeze rustling in the trees on the farm... my idea of bliss !
