We (2 families) stayed here for 2 nights in July'14. The experience was so good that I would go back here again on my future future trips to Shimoga/Thirthahalli.

Pro's:
1) It's located almost midway between Shimoga and Thirthahalli, ideally placed for anyone trying to explore the northern part of western ghats. It's a 17 acre farm, nicely spaced out cottages, dining hall, indoor games hut and the plantations. Once can easily spend 2 days just relaxing in this place
2) The food was exemplary, both veg and non-veg dishes are cooked in traditional Malnad style.
3) The pricing is all inclusive and very very VFM.
4) The hosts and the support staff are very pleasant to converse with, and make you feel at home right from the go

Con's
1) The beds in cottages are little uncomfortable. Also, with little more effort they can easily make the cottages more visually appealing

We were there for a weekend. The place is inside a 17-acre farm and therefore surrounded by lot of greenery. Rooms are quite big, neat and clean. Some rooms are unusually big, sufficient for 4 adults and 2-3 kids. No TV in the rooms so that you can spend quality time with your group and enjoy the nature. There is one TV in the common area. Food is homely and very tasty. Mandagadde Bird Sanctuary is at a walkable distance (2kms) and worth the visit during the season (June-Sep).

This place can also be used as a base for visiting several scenic and pilgrimage centers in Shimoga and Chikmagalur districts.

Suggestions:
1) Plan some activities for the tourists in the farm.
2) Give tourists a few options to choose from local specialities for lunch/dinner/breakfast

We ( a group of 3 families ) stayed at Inchara Homestay. This place is on the road from Thirthahalli - Shimoga. Nicely nestled in the greenery it was a very welcoming experience right as our Tempo traveller pulled into this place.

I had called up Mr. Ramesh (The owner of the property) to let him know that we were really hungry and we would like to have our lunch straightaway. and there it was waiting for us. The ladies who help Mr. Ramesh churn out truly Malnad cuisine. One week after the trip our family still keeps refering to the food we had there. This was certainly one of the best food we had on our week long trip to Karnataka.

It is a huge property and has a lot of options of outdoor games, right from shuttle, tabletennis, a tennicoit and volleyball/throwball courts.

A walk around the property in the wooded trails is a must if you have the energy and time

A very warm and welcoming experience overall. Felt right at home.

Good location but very bad & worst behavior, This home stay owner is a aged fellow, He don't have good human being. We booked home stay in advance & we came to home stay on the booked date.After check in the owner said about food and facilities we got tension, that owner did't follow his words. Simply cheating.Kind request to all please don't go to this home stay in your lifetime.

Beautiful place .Had a family vacation ,Had a cottage room ,very well organized.Lots to do for a extra activities like tricking( its a huge property around 14 acres) ,,TT,many more..Food was very delicious and unlimited.The host were really good and kind.We had a nice homestay experience.We have visited many homestay 's but normally all homestay 's are equal to hotels,but INCHARA which is different,we felt like its our close relative house,away from hotels.And food and accomodation is very reasonable.
Its summer but in INCHARA very chilled ,we slept without FAN /AC with thick blanket because of more trees and huge garden.
Hates of to Mr.Ramesh for creating such a natural and beautiful homestay.
