It is really very nice experience to stay at The Lodge. Mr Arjun Belliappa is maintaining the property wonderfully. Mr Chinnaya & Ms Lakshmi taking care very well and nice people. Instead of staying in the regular Lodge it is really really wonderful to stay here with homely atmosphere. My kids are enjoyed lot to stay there.

The Lodge is situated very conveniently in a quiet neighborhood just off the bustle of Madikeri town, yet close enough to be easily accessible (even on foot). It is a beautiful and quaint old home whose heritage charm has been perfectly maintained and wonderfully fused with basic modern amenities. It’s really hard not to appreciate the how picturesque it is... More

The charm of this vernacular style, British era house bowls you over with its antiques.The backyard garden is a very good place to spend you evenings. Location is also very convenient for anybody to reach. The hosts &... More

We have stayed 2 days at this place. The place is right at the entrance of Madikeri town. Easily reachable. The home is a very old one, neatly renovated without changing the ancient charm. The breakfast was tasty. Overall, a good, calm home stay.

The Lodge has been around since 1898 - as the signboard proclaims. If you love the charms of the old world with its huge rooms, ample open space, and quiet surroundings; you will love The Lodge. And the caretaker Mr. Muthanna with his two boys in charge make sure that there is no room for complaints. There is hardly the... More
