“Good place to spend a nice weekend.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

This place seem to have a beauty of its own. It was nice stay in this place

As this is a house as well so there are restrictions but the location, hospitality, friendliness and a kind approach was nice.

“Vinay” the caretaker was a absolutely obliging to us. Took good care and did not charge us for the jeep drive to the Falls that is in his property.

The guys whom you need to contact were a bit misguiding ”Who are the middle men” and they did not provide us the information that we needed accurately.

OTHER THEN THAT THE PLACE WAS AWESOME....LIKED IT… WORTH SPENDING A WEEKEND THERE..

Room Tip: Room on the first floor was good..

We were 2 Families consisting of 4 Adults and 2 Kids visiting Chikmagalur and decided to stay at Doopadcool Homestay for 3 Nights from Sep 01, 2013.
We were impressed with the Cleanliness and tidy manner in which the Bungalow was kept.
We had visited the Small but cute Waterfall inside the Estate!
This is a place worth visiting.. and is Value for Money!

Beautiful home with modern amenities (power generator, hot water etc.) and nice view. Good food and great hospitality. Definitely recommend for anyone looking to get away from busy life and relax on a serene setting.

1) Getting there - Its around 25 Kms from Chikmangalur town, easy to find with GPS.
2) Place - It has everything you can ask for. Amazing location, comfortable, clean and spacious rooms, breathtaking views with loving and hospitable host (VINAY).
3) Food - Tasty home cooked South Indian delicacies. If you want to eat according to your liking, you must mention it to Vinay, and he'll get it for you. Also, if you want to drink alcohol, one can drink in the veranda, overlooking the beautiful valley.
4) Overall - Icing on the cake was the bonfire Vinay arranged for us in the night, which was probably the best part of the trip. Definitely going back!

Room Tip: All rooms are really the same.

Great view, great location, good food and prompt staff...... what else you want from a place...... Worth every penny spent. Must visit the waterfall in the owner's estate. Make sure you spent atleast two days there to enjoy the serene beauty of the place.

Room Tip: Take the room with the balcony on the first floor.

I travelled to this slightly - difficult - to - access homestay with my in laws for a night in May. Since it is some way off the main Chikmaglur town, it took us some time reach there in the pitch darkness. Once you reach there you are immediately impressed by the big bungalow located bang in centre of the huge courtyard. The homestay owner, Vinay is extremely friendly and takes extra efforts to ensure that your stay is comfortable. Since it had been raining for a few days, the weather was extremely pleasant and the location at top of the hill is just awesome. We then had a nice small bonfire seated in the courtyard overlooking the valley with some delectable snacks. Morning introduced to us the valley in all its splendour and thats when you realise the magnitude of this location and the greenery all around. Just for that view i would not mind travelling there again! By afternoon we had packed up and left with some serenity in our hearts....

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Doopadcool, 18km from Chikmagalur, all of 150 acres of coffee plantation, beckoning woods, shimmering views of the Western Ghats, nestles naturally in the environs. It’s a bewitching region that is characterized by rolling hills populated by coffee shrubs, stately silver oaks with pepper vines snaking around its barks, dense jungle and the fragrance of cardamom ripening, and rich in meandering streams: Isolated, peaceful and staggeringly beautiful rustic landscape that swells and dips with valleys and peaks. And right in the midst of all this is Doopadcool Six bedroom bungalow. If ever there was a Homestay that had its fill of heaven-this is it. Rain land (Malnad in Kannada) is the region’s name and you know why. And through summer, winter and monsoon, the climate is sublime and fit for royalty. ... more   less
