Inchara is 30 kms away from Shimoga towards Tirthalli. I guess it is one of the very few home stay away from hustle-bustle of city in serene and peaceful environment. If you are in Shimoga for tourism, it\'s a good location as there isn't anything great in main city. I saw Shivappa Naik palace and Sacred heart church , both... More

We stayed at Inchara for one day during a 4 day trip. Reached there by evening on one day and left by around 11am on next day. It is a fairly large(15 acres) and well maintained property and you have lot of space for roaming around inside the property. Rooms were quite spacious and clean. We were given a room... More

I am a traveler who largely depend on recommendations and reviews before choosing a stay option. In this case I solely went by trip advisor reviews, but looking at more positive reviews I thought it would be a good experience. This is not the first time I am booking a home stay and in the past we have done a... More

Of course, I may not be the target demographic, or maybe I am the picky traveler. My review is totally out of line with the other reviews. Let me structure the review in sections. When: We traveled in the monsoon season (July). Short summary: It was an okay stay. But I felt like I was an unwanted free-loader in a... More

We (2 families) stayed here for 2 nights in July'14. The experience was so good that I would go back here again on my future future trips to Shimoga/Thirthahalli. Pro's: 1) It's located almost midway between Shimoga and Thirthahalli, ideally placed for anyone trying to explore the northern part of western ghats. It's a 17 acre farm, nicely spaced out... More

We were there for a weekend. The place is inside a 17-acre farm and therefore surrounded by lot of greenery. Rooms are quite big, neat and clean. Some rooms are unusually big, sufficient for 4 adults and 2-3 kids. No TV in the rooms so that you can spend quality time with your group and enjoy the nature. There is... More

We ( a group of 3 families ) stayed at Inchara Homestay. This place is on the road from Thirthahalli - Shimoga. Nicely nestled in the greenery it was a very welcoming experience right as our Tempo traveller pulled into this place. I had called up Mr. Ramesh (The owner of the property) to let him know that we were... More
