Fernhill Cottage, was originally built as a holiday home for the owners, Dr George Paul and his wife Dr. Bini George.
The house was inspired by the model of old English cottages of Yercaud built in the early 20th century. The house is built out of rough hewn granite stones furnished with a modern kitchen and toilets. The house has a wooden loft accessed by a spiral staircase and can be used as a bedroom/ recreational area.

The space
Fernhill Cottage is so named because of the abundance of wild ferns on the hillock atop which the house is situated. The hosts would like to rent the home stay facility with friendly folk, looking for a peaceful holiday in the hills.
The house easily accommodates 4-6 adults. The house has a patio that overlooks a verdant valley of silver oaks and coffee plantations. Sitting on the veranda with a cup of coffee, one can see a breath taking sunrise that makes a colourful display in the sky every morning. The house is surrounded by a flower and rock garden, two acres of coffee (just planted) and fruit trees. In the late evenings there is a crepuscular aura of silence broken only by the cry of crickets and the sounds of the wind in the trees.
The climb to the house is about 400 metres of paved roads through the small plantation.
The kitchen has a well-stocked larder for a simple breakfast of bread/ toast, eggs, cereal and coffee. However, should guests want an Indian Breakfast or other meals, it can be ordered through the caretaker who is resident in his quarters.
There is a separate cabin with toilet for drivers which is not inclusive of the tariff.
The Kitchen is equipped with gas stoves, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and heated water. Drinking water is available through the Aquaguard filter attached to the kitchen tap. The water is a clean source and has a purifier ( RO) and it is not hard water. The host offers complimentary breakfast which is either English I.e. two loaves of bread , Butter, Jam and a dozen eggs per day which will be stocked in the larder or a set Indian breakfast of Idli/ dosa/ poori, sambhar, chutneys or sabji etc. The caretaker will provide additional services like getting provisions, food etc for an additional negotiated cost. The family cooks hygienic and tasty food which is priced modestly.
