It was a long time after we decided upon Sakleshpur as our next holiday destination. Sakleshpur is an under-rated hill station which is about less than 250 kms away from Bangalore. Once we finalised the location, next comes to the place of stay. Searched online for various accommodation available listed few of them and finally decided on Forest Homestay, Gowdahalli after a neat interaction with Mr. Jeevan. The journey from Bangalore to Hassan was an uneventful journey on 4 lanes roads, from there till Saklespur 2 lane and from there single road about 30 km to homestay. Host had called us on the day of stay to help us with the route and suggested other tourist spots on the way. The route to homestay was pretty confusing but the route details he sent with directions was quite helpful. Stay and food, this is where we were treated to best of malnad hospitality.The rooms were quite well done. There were 2 rooms in cottage and each room has 2 double bed with comfortable space inside. The property is new, very well maintained and clean. The food was very good, kudos to the chef and his team there. Every evening, we were treated to a campfire with some snacks and good music before heading to dinner. Definitely will come back with my family in 2 months, thanks to Jeevan and Dileep :) :)
