House on the Rock

Majestically perched on top of a Rock, amidst a well anchored "Ship House" and natural barrier of deep "River Cauvery". "HOUSE ON THE ROCK" is a perfect peace haven on earth.

Just being there to witness the nature wake up to its glorious sunrise will be a sure thing to keep the hustle and bustle of the of the world outside at bay. The sunset in the evening and the silence of the moonlit night lets you to rest in peace giving you a feeling of being born again to the face of a new day.

This structure is designed and built by the owner who has a passion for building unusual structures within his own little kingdom. The Ship House used to cater to guests from abroad 15 years ago when home stays were not heard of in this county. Personally built by hand picked craftsmen this HOUSE ON THE ROCK gives you an ominous presence of love and care for the people who come to stay here.

Nearby, the surrounding coffee bushes, pepper vines, and the cardamom gardens beckon you with an early morning or a late night stroll. Don't be surprised if a wild hare brushes past your feet on one of you walks and don't be taken aback by the sheer size of Golden Masheer that might jump out from the deeps to greet its guests old and new alike. This is one place that will surely make you friends with nature
