We have found what feels like our own personal heaven in Kodai at Misty Cove. The homestay feature, not to miss mentioning its most amicable hosts giving it the personal touch, and the sprawling lush lawns and beautifully chosen flowers, overlooking the Kodai lake, has given Kodaikanal a new meaning for us. Just the perfect blend of coziness & modernity...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mistycove is an exclusive homestay option situated on a prime lakefront property at Kodaikanal. It has got 5 cottages, scattered over 3 acres of lush gardens with beautiful views. Mistycove is equally suited for a romantic getaway or an action filled family vacation. All cottages have two large bedrooms both with attached bathrooms and a walk-in wardrobe area, one living room with a fire place. All bathrooms have hot water facility. At Mistycove you need to order food 24 hours prior in case you wish to have food on the premises. All cottages are adequately furnished without being flashy. There is a Television with cable connection in every cottage at Mistycove. We take pride in our beautiful award winning gardens which have sprawling lawns overlooking the lake and rose gardens, flower beds, and mature fruit and shola trees. Mistycove has just 5 cottages and the caretaker quarters. Being spread over 3 acres, this makes it very exclusive. Mistycove is a 100% vegetarian homestay and even outside non-vegetarian food is not allowed on the premises. It is also an alcohol/tobacco free facility. Mistycove is so strategically located that you do not need to worry about local transport for most of your needs. Walk time to some of the important locations are as under:Lake - 0 minute, Bryant Park - 2 minutes, Boating - 1 minute, Horse riding stand - 1 minute, Bicycle shops - 0 minutes, Tibetan market - 0 minutes, Coaker's walk - 5 minutes, Bus Terminus - 5 minutes, Seven Road Junction & Bazaar - 5 minutes, Boat club - 5 minutes. While being in the midst of all the action, the compound itself exudes serenity and peace. A rare combination... ... more   less
