Inchara Home Stay is more than home stay. I was under the impression that it is another cramped home stay like some available in Coorg and Chickmagalur. The location is perfect with a walkable distance from Mandagadde Bird Sanctuary. Although it is called home stay, it is in fact a mini resort. The host Mr Ramesh is a retired electrical... More

We were looking for a perfect family holiday and we chose Inchara home stay. We are glad we did it ! 'inchara', secluded, nestled in greenary is a perfect getaway from the hustle bustle of city life. True to its name 'Inchara' which means sweet voice ,the only sound you hear here is the sweet sounds of birds and rustling... More

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.
