Spread over a few acres of greenery/plantations, the cottages are large, well designed and comfortable.

Great place, big rooms and nice home cooked meals with a lovely local flavor. The caretakers are very nice and accomodative. Good base to see Jog Falls and the nearby sights. Loved the morning walk to the fields.

No televisions and other such facilities but the cottages come with all comforts including bathtubs in the well equipped bathrooms. True to its name, the homestay is built in... More
