We stayed here for two days during Dasara holidays. The place is very close to Jog falls. Approach is decent with 100 mts of mud road at the entrance. The cottages are big n nice, whereas the rooms in the main building are small and not the beat. The food is basic vegetation food. You get dry chapati , rice... More

Homestay was nice and the stay was pleasant. It was more like a farm stay, as the place is nestled inside a well maintained farm. I dont have any opinion on the food since i did not get a chance to have the Breakfast or lunch over there. The Cottage is Clean and spacious. If you are coming from Sagara,... More

We stayed at the Mattuga home stay on our way from Goa. Close to Jog falls, it offers good accommodation. The food was excellent, all home cooked. What impressed us the most was the staff was extremely courteous and pleasant to deal with. They go one step beyond to make your stay comfortable. We had to leave early morning, although... More

We stayed there to attend a friends wedding in Sagar. We took the cottage, and it was spacious, clean and comfortable. The cottages give the privacy you desire as it is surrounded by trees. The food is what set this place apart. You get authentic malanad veg food. The spread is quiet huge and I actually ate few dishes that... More

The best thing about this place is its location. Very near to jog falls around 8 kms. The place was very clean. The food was very tasty. Everything was very well arranged. Vignesh the care taker of this place was super fast and arranged everthing properly. Nice location. You can listen only nature here.

The rooms are a bit small but well decorated(You can check out my photos). The Cottages are bigger. Since there are not too many choices, you need to book... More

This is our 3rd visit to Jog Falls (2008,2013 & now) and y second to this homestay. The owner is good and helps with the planning and reservations. The care takers are down to earth. If you are expecting a resort type experience, then you are mistaken. This is a homestay, basics all the way - food (veg only), facilities,... More

Its been nice place to stay which is close to jog falls. It has been surrounded by farms and jungle so one can enjoy scenic beauty. Walking to near by fields provide soothing feeling. Cottage is quite spacious and well maintained but you can find insects as it is close to jungle surrounding. Food is not good and options too... More

We stayed at mattuga last weekend from 29-31st Aug. When we reached there we were really happy to see the lush greenery and simplicity of the place. This is not the place for those who are looking for room service and scores of recreation facilities but for the ones who want to experience a first hand experience of a home... More
