Places To Visit In Chikmagalur

Popular Homestays Destinations

This homestay is at the top of the hill and a maximum of 12-15 people can be accommodated at a time . You feel at one with nature and can sit watching the hills for ever . The couple who host this place are very warm and make you feel at home. Extremely clean and tasty food add to the experience. I would love to go back and recommend this to any one who wants a calm get away with their family and friends.
"it was an awesome experience, Stay was good and Karthik arranged trekking,visit to less known water fall and and a hill station view and shooting point... Everything was awesome. the Time we choose to visit chikmagalur was just perfect (Aug 31 to Sep2). it was cool weather there with slight raining and drizzling. They Serbia malnad style food which was tasty and good for the that kind of climate."
"Amazing place. But the 5 star is specifically meant for the extremely courteous staff. Really loved it. "
"The place is awesome. Its a nice homestay with nice people, the owner himself is so humble that you can't make out that he is the owner. In this budget you can't expect more, in this monsoon the place is a delight to be experienced. Now few things to know before you come here,\n\n1. Its actually in Mudegere, a village which is at the hill top, not in the heart of Chikamagalur. \n\n2. The road to the homestay is very curvy and narrow, in Google map you try to search Girisiri Homestay, Aramane, get the location and from there its 2 Kms up. The homestay is called Bomrukallu, but it won't show up in map, you can ask the local people if you find any.\n\n3. Only Airtel worked, no jio, Vodafone. You won't find any network there.\n\n4. it's only one night stay, 2 days one night means 24 hrs.\n\n5. If you like having snacks in room, better to get them early coz you won't get anything there in the hill top.\n\n6. Please get all your daily products for your daily use, because it's not a hotel that will provide you everything. They are normal people and welcome you normally. Its a simple room which they will be providing.\n\n7. Its a first come first serve system, means they have 4 rooms and whoever goes first gets the best room, I am saying this because there are two rooms which has a shared bathroom. But yaa, you have a huge dining area and sofa set there. Rooms are having 3 beds, so if you have a big family, 4- 5 person can easily use them, sufficient pillows are there. Couple can use only one bed and use the other beds as a dumping spot.\n\n8. If you have an idea to book ? tent, please throw it out at once. Because you will be highly disappointed. The tents are there, but it's not in the Forrest, the tents are there where they also park there car most of the time.. Yaa and it's in the ground, of course you will get pillows and matress but litches can be your partner while it's dark. I think you got the Idea.\n\n9. Food is fine, but who will come here to have food, Its the nature which is important. Nature is so amazing that you will not waste any time sleeping or just sitting inside the room. Its a buffet what they will serve, and both veg and non-veg will be there. Omlete and rotis are easy to get. The food is like Ghar Ka Khana.\n\n10. They will provide a guide to show you the falls and the valley, don't dare to miss it. It is going to be one heck of an experience. You will love it. Parking can be a problem there, so please check the place carefully before you park, coz you have to come back using the same road. Don't try much reverse thingy because there will be no one to help you out in the jungle. \n\n11. Please get your football, badminton rackets and playing cards if you love to play because they have a shortage of it and there is a big lawn available for your use. \n\n12. Mosquito, I couldn't find one but suggest you to take a repellent and coil or liquid or something, coz they won't provide you that.\n\n13. Free evening snacks and bonfire, you will love it. Tea and coffee whenever you ask, actually you don't have to. They are already pretty humble.\n\n\nHugh.. That's a lot of information. Hope you guys got the idea. I will be giving few pics, you can get to know it more. Lastly this is a nice place to visit, you will enjoy it for sure... Thanks for reading..\n"

Picture perfect! The place to spend some equality with nature. I accidentally discovered this place during a random search on the internet for Home stay in the Chikamagalur hills and trust me it turned to be one my most memorable stays. This home stay is on the top of the hill and the drive to the house is itself an interesting experience. The first impression you feel is being one with nature and can sit watching the clouds settling on the hills and cold misty air hitting your face. The couple who host this place are very warm and make you feel at home. Food served definitely has to be one of the highlights of the stay. I can vouch, this is the place I've had the best coffee till date. I would love to go back and recommend this to anyone who wants a calm get away with their family and friends. The stay also includes a cozy bonfire,a trek to the nearby peak and a waterfall located en route. We traveled in the monsoon months stayed for 3 days and left the place with vow to return back in the winter months. Every season adds its charm and blends perfectly with nature. There are some good places to explore nearby like the sunset point, Hornadu & Kalasa temples and the Kundremukha National park. A word of caution while driving to this place, the Google maps co-ordinates are not accurately mapped. I would recommend following the instructions given by the house staff and follow the landmarks listed. The path to the house is narrow and winds up the hill, avoid taking the road after dark.
"We were 3 couples with 2 kids staying 3 D/ 2 N. Mind-blowing experience. Out-of-the-world hospitality and lip-smacking food. "

My family along with my friend's family had visited Chikmagalur for 3 days trip. The stay in your estate was very good. The food you served was extremely good in quality. My two year old baby had the same food what we had and she was very comfortable with the same. The only thing which needs attention is geyser. It took more time to get the water heated. Other then that, the rooms, washrooms etc., are all very good.
"Stay was very comfortable and kudos to Arun and Dinesh for their hospitality and patience. estate manager Mr.Jayaraju is very cordial and cooperative.\n food is amazing and cooks were very friendly and prepared taty food. Rani khati waterfalls visit is must and enjoyed the most. overall recommend the property for long break from routine to take rest in serene and peaceful environment. 2 kms stretch is very narrow and need some guidance otherwise everything is fine and we are happy with the stay."
This home stay is one of the best homestay we stayed in chikmagalur. For couples and family this is the best choice. Excellent location, Excellent hospitality, Excellent food, very clean and neat place. Jairaj and his workers provide excellent hospitality, they treat us as their own relatives. Again to mention that the food they provide is excellent. I believe this homestay is the best
