“Warm-hearted welcome to India!”
Reviewed January 5, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Quite stay upon arrival to India in this colonial style villa south of Ernakulam in a christian neighborhood. Feel completely at home and share the company of the lovely couple who run their house: they will make your stay as confortable and delightful as possible. Kerala meal is wonderful and generously served. Much appreciated.

“Kid-friendly Heritage Home”
Reviewed January 9, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We were really very lucky to come across such gracious hosts. Our daughter (less than two) fell sick and the head of the home personally took to caring for her, making sure she had fresh bananas and other clean fruit everyday. Also, she gave us great recommendations for sight-seeing and purchasing saris only found in Kerala. We only wish we had more time and were feeling better so that we could enjoy the famous beach about an hour away by car.

“Beautiful property + Awesome hosts = Great memories!”

We stayed here during a family get-together. There were 10 of us, including a toddler and a baby.
After a long drive from bangalore, i was looking forward to a good night's sleep, and that was easily achieved thanks to the quiet and peaceful surroundings. All the bedrooms are air conditioned, and the bathrooms are clean.

Mr and Mrs Sebastian, were just the best hosts we could've hoped for. Neither intrusive nor elusive. They stay in a separate building on the property, and were always available when we needed them, whether it was for menu requests or to answer our many questions about the house, which has a lot of history to it. Very pleasant people.

The house itself is quite large and spacious. My 2 year old son, who was just learning how to run, had a great time being chased by his grandparents, aunties and uncles!
The meals were mostly homecooked, (except for when we were out or came back late and ended up getting takeaways) and were in traditional kerala style, which is what we wanted. The food was really good, and we really enjoyed quality time at the table.

All of us had a great time at Lake County Heritage Home, and i'd choose to stay here in a heartbeat as soon as an opportunity arises. I'd whole heartedly recommend LCHH to anybody looking to get some peace and quiet while not staying far away from the city. Especially if they're travelling with family or a large group.

Liked best: Our Hosts. They're really polite and soft spoken. Felt like we were staying over at a relative's place, not a rental.
Liked least: If i really had to nitpick, it would be the mosquitoes that seemed to come out in the evenings. But we easily overcame this with some repellant cream. There were no mosquitoes inside though, thanks to screens on every door and window.

“Loved the poetry of nature at Lake county”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air,, trees, people. I thought, This is what it is to be happy. Our family get-together with 10 members of our family was most entertaining, yet private and warm in the beautiful surroundings. We are still enjoying the delightful sweet days and it will remain with us for long time to come. The food was delicious and inviting. Love to visit time and again to refresh our experience.

“A delightful experience...”
Reviewed August 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our stay at the Lake County Heritage Home was an experience like no other. The quintessential 'home away from home' experience. The building itself reeks history and the walls echo of happy family memories. Large corridors and open spaces..perfect for a family holiday, especially a large family that wants to stay under one roof !
Well maintained with yummy homely food and the convenience of being in the heart of a city yet away from it all..

Perfect place to create some memories of your own :)

“Relaxing stay at Heritage home”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here for four nights in July 2016 with our two teenage sons. We had a very enjoyable, relaxing and memorable stay at this heritage home. Liked the quiet area, clean rooms with air con, good food, internet access and received a warm welcome from awesome hosts. Would like to come back again here and highly recommend this place to anyone planning to visit Cochin.
