We spent a weekend in April at Skanda Homestay. After a scenic but bumpy drive, we arrived at the charming estate house.
Room - Large, with an antique feel. Bathrooms are large and adequately appointed. We were not the only occupants of the room - several tiny black bugs (harmless) appeared in the night, apparently very common in the rainy season.
Food - Excellent!! Healthy, tasty, and homemade.
Activities - 1) Must do: watch elephant feeding at a camp 3 KMs away 2) Excellent biking route to Pollibetta (around 25 KM roundtrip) - manager was kind enough to arrange the cycles 3) Iruppu Falls (44 KM from estate)
The only major downside was that the estate house is right on the highway. A big disappointment for people looking to get away from vehicular noise.
Overall, a very satisfying experience and the staff is very hospitable.
