Inchara Homestay
Ranked #8 of 21 Shimoga B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 January 2017

Set in the midst of arecanut plantation, this is a property with natural beauty at it's best. Easy access from the highway.

Clean and neat rooms with all required amenities barring of course the urban luxuries (actually it's a good detox therapy!).
Fantastic malnad cuisine on offer. They have a large sheltered party area with bonfire arrangement too.
And yeah, they do have recreation activities including TT, carrom and badminton.

Overall it was a pleasant homestay experience for us.

We stayed there for New Years at end Dec 2016.

Inchara was recommended by an acquaintance when we were looking for a weekend stay near Shimoga, and this turned out to be an excellent getaway amidst luscious greenery.
It is simple to navigate to this place and well laid out, the host is very welcoming and helpful, making our stay so easy. The cottages are clean with all the amenities, 24*7 electricity with backups, bathing and eating facilities well catered for and all of the above topped off with friendly care from the host and the staff. You request them for a particular dish (This place caters to South Indian vegetarian cuisine only) and they will serve it to you in their own special way. Coffee/Tea, breakfast, lunch and dinner were always ready and available when we needed it and every meal came with delicious dessert and healthy-tasty fruits.
The stay has many relaxing activities like TT, carom, Badminton, short treks and is super safe (with always energetic retrievers: Sindhu and Bindhu –on charge!!).
It is a perfect place to unwind with family and friends, we would definitely revisit and further recommend to people looking for similar experience.

We visited the homestay during last week and words are not enough to describe the beauty of this place. We were a family of 4 with 2 kids and they loved the place.
From the time I called the owner till the time we checked out, owner has provided fantastic support. We were extremely happy about the way every single thing was taken care of.
Food was simply awesome. Being south Indians, we loved the simple south Indian food. No complaints whatsoever in this regard. Tea, breakfast, lunch and dinner were always ready and available when we needed it and this is what we liked the most. Every meal had some or the other kind of sweet and fruit! Totally awesome.
Cook and the help are so warm they would make anyone feel welcome. My kids loved the attention given and the food provided. They were so accommodating with regards to our delays or demands! Simply incredible twosome.
Inchara is one homestay which you shouldn't miss visiting!

1. I was here recently. The property is nice.
2. But the owner, who is an aged person is extremely cold and indifferent.
3. I felt that his only concern is to get the money and shoo you off.
4. Even though we were not there for 24 hours and did not have lunch and even though he had agreed to reduce the fare on account of this, he asked for full fare when we were about to leave. I had to remind him to reduce the price.
5. He charged an exorbitant 1000 for the driver. First he told me that 'the driver can sleep in the car'. When I refused, he told he would give him one room and charge 1000. It is inconsiderate not to have a sleeping place for drivers in such a big property.
6. The food was very average. Not much options. For the kind of food he provides, the pricing is just too high.
7. The rooms are ok, nothing great. He gave us one near the dining hall. Big room but hardly any sunlight or fresh air. Since there were no other guests, I asked for other options. 'Rooms are yet to be cleaned' was the response.
8. The owner took the money and was off. Never came out when we were leaving. In fact, you can hardly see the owners.
9. Since I have stayed in other home stays, I can confidently say that there is nothing homely about this stay.
10. We felt unwanted in this place. Just wanted to scoot.
11. I am sure that there are better home stays nearby. If you can, please avoid this place.
