we ( a group of 4) went during June10,2012 - June15,2012 to visit Jog Falls. we decided to stay at Matthuga and in the end it proved to be an excellent decision. The rooms were excellently maintained. An homely environment, the food was great, though it was of the local style. the tariff is economical too. but, to visit nearby places you should only hire for a cab which can be arranged by them on request. better go for pick up and drop up facility at sagar / shimoga. Lots of temples can be covered as we have done. Some Must visit places are Kollur, Sirsi, Keladi, Ikkeri, Jog Falls, Bheemeshwara, Murudeshwara, unchalli falls, vardahalli, etc.
there are not much staffs in the homestay. a family is taking care of it which gives us a feel that we are in our own home. the food is served on buffet style.
