3 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 12
Yercaud, Salem District, Tamil Nadu
Our cottage which is a new construction is built as a holiday home in Yercaud hills with breathtaking views all around. There are three round bedrooms with attached bathrooms. There is another common bathroom in the ground floor. There is UPS backup for some light in all the rooms in case of power shut down which is relatively common in in Yercaud. Kitchen may be booked for use at an extra cost or the caretaker can provide simple meals at home. If you prefer gourmet meals some good restaurants are there in town.

There are two terraces to sit out and enjoy the views, including a covered area in the terrace in front.

There is a childrens slide along the side of the property suitable for small children only.

Please note that voltage fluctuations are very frequent in this area and hence microwave may not function at all times.
