Ending up at Lakeside after a week of fast-paced travel throughout Tamil Nadu was the perfect respite. The things that are unsurpassed are the views, the serene ambiance, and the warmth of the staff and owners (and dogs!). It is completely unlike any other place I'd seen in the country. Next time (and I plan on there being one) I...
