What We Offer
Coorg has been variously described as, ‘the Scotland of India’ and ‘Kashmir of the South’. Officially known as Kodagu, it is one of the most accessible and popular hill stations in South India.
With its rolling mountains and spectacular waterfalls, this land is a nature lover and trekker's paradise.
Located in Karnataka, Coorg is a popular coffee-producing hill station and is associated with perpetually misty landscapes, forest-covered hills, wildlife, coffee and spice plantations, and breath-taking scenery.
Here are a few places near our homestay that you can visit. They will certainly make your trip memorable.

Madikeri to Bengnaad House (Cherambane)
This scenic drive is approx 24 km. When you reach Madikeri town limits continue driving till you reach General Thimmaiah Circle. Proceed to Bhagamandala road (it is also the road that leads to Mangalore). Go down this road for about 3 km and at Thalathmane you will come to a steep left hairpin bend. Take this bend to the left and you are on the way to Cherambane. The same road also leads to Talacauvery. Madikeri to Cherambane is a 35 minute drive. You can look out for these villages as you drive to Bengnaad House: Appangla, Bettageri and Kargunda.
One kilometer before you get to Cherambane, you will see a bus shelter on your left. A "BENGNAAD HOUSE" sign board will also be visible. Next to the bus shelter, you will see a grey and black gate with the name "PS POOVAIAH" on it. Open the gate and drive through the coffee estate for around 200 meters to reach your destination.
