When i decided to see Jog falls i ended up looking at places about and ran into Inchara home stay.. called up Mr Ramesh , and the brief talk just reinforced my that to go stay at this place . Its a lovely quaint place of 15 acres quietly sitting in the forest stretch of Mandegadde bang near the bird sanctuary (though there is nothing except cranes out there ) . The couple is very warm and friendly,.,, in some senses it feels like a relatives place.. more so since i was all by myself.The food is a typical Malnad food but lots of variety in terms of veggies and i loved the river fish fried.The caretakers cum cooks are so loving and i feasted as i spoke in my broken miserable Kannada. The rooms are simple and basic but the entire setting of the place is enchanting, bettlenut trees, mango trees, lots of pretty flowers. The lady of the house loves to do bonsai.. and the entire place is filled with small planters with arrested plants :)... the stay there was the best i had during my week long trip to the north Karnataka .If you are the sort looking for a quiet homely place with bird and insect sounds, freshness n home cooked meals this place wouldnt disappoint you.
Ps- There is no TV in the room, though u wouldnt need one. There is one in the lunch area.Also no network if you are using Vodafone! :).I would say its a break much needed for your over social busy city lives.
Best Time to Visit- Post monsoon. when the freshness of green would engulf you!..check some of my pics here.. happy breaks.

It was a very good experience and the best part were the long nature trails surrounding the resort. The flora was at its very best and the silence was deafening only broken by the birds.

Best Experience: The nature walks and the trip to Jog falls.

Worst Experience: Nothing but the car parking approach road should be clearly marked. First timers, the very first time... kindly remmeber to take the first gate for car parking.

The overall experience was good and hastle free.The staff at the reception was cordial and quick. The rooms were just okay for the price.He helped us in booking the Taxi for our next day\'s visit to Jogfalls & Sigandhur temple.

Best Experience: The location of the hotel is ideally suited for us as it is close to the railway station. The staff were responsive and the service was good.

Worst Experience: We were to leave early in the morning the next day. But the hot water was not available in the shower. We have to make several requests to the room service and finally they managed to supply us the hot water in the bucket. I think the hotel should make arrangement for 24 hours hot water.The food in the attached restaurant was not all that great.

I zeroed on Inchara after a lot of googling and my first hand experience with Mr.Ramesh on phone was good enough to know that we were in good hands. The place is rustic and raw. nature at its best. It is a 15 acre estate plantation of arcaenut, Mango, jackfruit and a milion variety of flowers. The weekend was a family outing of 5 members, my parents, sister, husband and I.

We had booked 2 rooms and they were super clean. The food was homely and delicious. Mr & Mrs. Ramesh were always there to help. I have to specially mention the staff Sujatha and Susheela who cooked for us and cared for us. Extremely helpful staff and very courteous.

There are so many places to see around and so many activities to do inside the estate but i just chose to relax on the jhoola and hammoks :) I recommend this place to everyone. Truly worth every penny.

Best Experience: The place, the host, service and food. Overall it\'s Awesome

Worst Experience: None that I can think of
