Was thinking of visiting the Tholpetty wildlife sanctuary and so chose this farmhouse.
The reviews were good..the place decent enough and the surrounding breath-taking. The best part it is not commercialized. Since, there were 4 of us travelling we chose the log cottage. The place is very well connected to the main road. The owner had sent us the directions for the place ,but still we had to use our google maps to locate. There is complete privacy ,since the place can accommodate few guests. It is surrounded by coffee plantation and they have an open farming field on one side.
Food is good,authentic kerala cuisine. The room's are comfortable and clean. The service is good. They also have a machan where you can sit around and watch the chittals and langoors in the forest right in front of it. Also, a beautiful sit out area where you can find pictures of the different wild animals present in the area. They also arrange night safari's and you can find animals on the road's itself.
Overall a beautiful experience.
