We, as a family decided to set up MaplePine Farm Bed and Breakfast as something a little different and new for Meghalaya. We decided to struggle for a couple years and do it ourselves to build it ourselves. We started out living in tents in the middle of winter here at 1680 metres elevation, cold freezing nights but beautiful sunny days. Many people did and still do not understand what we were trying to do and what we are hoping for.
Now some 8 years later we are at a place that we want to be. In a position to accept the guests we want.
A PLACE TO RELAX
MaplePine Farm is somewhere between a camping, bed & Breakfast, home stay experience and a lodge. We do have comfortable rooms and beds, but we are not going to bring your food to your room; we have a dining room for that, where all can eat and meet.
We do have toilets and a sink for the room, Cabin 1 and 2 have attached bath, that we turn the 25 litre geyser on in the day time. We also do have a Central Bath (with a Solar Water heater) and Shower room. We are completely off grid and could not manage hot water heaters in every cabin.
Nothing to do but the Outdoors
As for the nature of the property, that is exactly it, it is about nature. We certainly don’t mind a little drinking and a good time. We do mind and others may mind loud music and somebody just coming to party. Imagine if you went someplace for a quite tranquil time and somebody else had some loud Hindi music on and singing and dancing, not really what one would wish for. We are basically a getaway, your mobile network might not work too well, and you might not get fast internet connection. But you will get a break from all that might have been stressing you out.
We expect mutual respect, for person and property. We do not have a large full time staff to run around for your orders. We treat the workers we have very much like family and ask that our clients treat them so as well.
As for food, we can do a lot of things and give you good food. But we cannot have you arriving and order this and that on the spot. Given enough time we can do it. So please don’t expect that you are coming to a resort where when you arrive you can just have this and that, there and then.
If you read the above and understand what MaplePine Farm Bed and Breakfast is about, and you feel comfortable coming, Then we are here to host you and give and enjoyable experience.
