This place is about 2.5km from the main lake area and consists of a few individual rooms which are spread out in a garden-like area. The rooms are neat and clean and are equipped with whatever one would require for a peaceful stay. Special mention of the washroom area as it has 24x7 hot water and a nice and big shower area. A very cozy room I'd say. We had the complimentary breakfast and I have to say that the items were delicious. I'm from Bangalore so I'm not unfamiliar with what a great dosa tastes like, but the dosa here pleasantly surprised me. Full marks to the folks manning the kitchen. The service was also very warm and I can say that staff went over an beyond to help us with our requests. Only drawback - since it's a tent-like structure, the walls aren't solid and hence our sleep was disturbed a bit due to dogs barking well into the night.

We stayed at The Fern Creek from 31 December to 3rd of January .. 2 adults and one infant were completely taken care of by Mani/ Parthiban/ Xavier.. we needed a packet of milk every morning for my kid and it was arranged without any fuss .. Food was perfectly prepared according to our preference as delivered promptly in our rooms hot and fresh.. breakfast was delivered to us even after 10:30 am without any fuss by mani which was a very nice gesture The rooms / tents were nice and cosy and completely off beat to d traditional hotel rooms.. though it is tent type it has all modern amenities .. d only drawback is d noise from nearby buildings/ dog barking can be a bit disturbing.. The place is a 15 mins drive from the market .. but car was readily available at d resort to pick up and drop us .. Xavier was really helpful when we had to buy chocolate/ spices.. The atmosphere around the resort/ boutique is really fresh and has greenery all around because of which it gets a little nippy but d bonfire was arranged as a special request just for us on 2 nights with a smile ... The send off by Mike was so touching as he was kind even to wait by our car till we finished our photo session n kept enquiring if we had enough water bottles for our return journey and stuff .. A small slide or a swing for little kids to play would be d perfect icing on d cake on an already beautiful spread ... New Years beautifully spent with amazing set of people where everyone greets u with a smile .. wil definitely visit again..
