“An Awesome experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

An excellent place to be.. We actually went on a "Royal Enfield" ride to this place. We were aroung 10 people and we were surprised to see that the place does accomodate that many people. Very clean & well maintained, with an awesome view of the valley. Food is rocking good and good enough to keep your stomach full.. An awesome place to be with family as well and the best part if, that the entire place is booked for the group..
The organizer Nandu rocks.. he is very customer friendly and good to talk person..

Please don't miss this place, if you guys are planning to travel there :)

regards
Ganesh

I had been to a bike trip to Belur from Bangalore and got to stay in this place since Wild hogs leader suggested it. He had it on top of his mind as soon as we zeroed in on Belur.
Only after the visit, I knew why...the place is amazing for stay whether you are friends or family (extended family). The food was amazing..can never complain and the hospitality was great.
The place has some things to play like chess, brainvita. All things are maintained spic and span.
Very few places come to this standard. Nandu, Ramesh and team showed great hospitality and helped us feel at home.
The view from the room was great and the sunset view amazing. You have to plan and go up hill to see the sunrise...on a clear day it is a treat.

Room Tip: If you are large group of min 10 people, it is good. Otherwise they are just building a good room o...

Being a employee working for Luxury Resort, i had already set my standards high for evaluating the stay......but to my pleasant surprise .........it went beyond my expectation.

The home stay is well located.....not too close to chickmangalore town...not too far also.....
the view from the accommodation is amazing........you are instantly carried away to another world ............
The biggest star of this entire experience was Mr. Nandu who runs this place. He has understood the real meaning of "Athiti Devo Bhava" ......

From the time of booking .........and throughout our stay.....he was in constant touch with us .....to see to it that ....our stay was comfortable .........!!

The food was amazing......they have a in house cook.....who prepared some relishing local dishes....many of which ...i tasted for the first time...and they were finger liking good........ i particularly liked the shredded mushroom curry....which was out of this world.

i was traveling with my friend .....and we were two families ...... the accommodation was just right for us...with two bedrooms and a big general area....... if the crowd was bigger ...we would have enjoyed it more....

what made the stay memorable was ......the small surprises which the host family gave us....!!

A nice bon fire was arranged for us in the evening.........we wanted some music....and the wish was granted.......we wanted some hot snacks for the cold night .....the helpers got us nice bajjis and hot soup.....and the soothing music made our evening enjoyable....

the host was very caring......they were like a family.

We visited the property..during Ayudh pooja...!! the host family was kind enough to wash my car and flower decorate it....and performed a full fledged pooja,...... more elaborate than i would have done it at my home.......

Mr. Nandu...personally took us for a guided tour of their 50 acre plantation......which was quite adventurous.........

what i can say is ....we were well taken care off ........and never felt away from home......

This property is highly recommended ....... simple yet elegant...!!

Would definitely visit this place again........ All the best Nandu.

We were scouting for options for a fun filled getaway in Chickmagalur. Nesting grounds had good reviews online. I spoke to Nandu and finalized our holiday ..

The Drive :
We were a group of 9 who drove down for a 2N/3D getaway to Nesting Grounds, Chikamagalur from Bangalore. Good roads all the way . Few bad stretches after Belur, but very much manageable. Nandu had given me the directions to micro details, which made our journey to his resort hassle free.

The Stay:
The moment we entered the gate and climbed the small road, we knew, its going to be 3 days of fun in an amazing place. We were not disappointed. The home stay has 2 rooms, and a spacious hall with wash rooms in both rooms. The resort overlooks a valley and the early morning sight is simply amazing. No wonder most of them were up so early both days and sitting out in the balcony.

The Fun :
The rain walk at night down the resort road, would remain the high-point of the trip. There is a huge courtyard used for drying coffee seeds, which doubled up as our cricket pitch in the morning. We did speed boating at Yagachi Dam, 30 kms away from the resort and also visited Halebedu temple, an architectural wonder by itself. The cold foggy night gave a great opportunity for a Bonfire accompanied by a super BBQ.

The Hosts:
The food in the resort is absolutely amazing, and they take special care to ensure you are provided with variety with every meal. We became fans of their home made wine too.
To put it simple, we felt we visited a friends home over weekend, and never felt we were in a homestay. Thanks Nandu & Family and their staff for being such great hosts.A special thanks also to Parikshith for dropping by to make our evening more pleasant. We for sure are coming back soon !!

For All of us @ Team Grassroute,

We had a splendid time at the homestay. Clean , homely and a perfect weekend getaway for family and friends . We had a memorable stay. Barbecue was the topping of ice. Hosts were people who knew what is hospitality .... Would definitely visit again ...
