If we start writing about our experience in this beautiful abode all the pages of this visitors book will be covered. We have seen this house being built for last couple of years and the final avatar is absolutely brilliant and portrays the love and care which has been bestowed upon it. Your hospitality Vidya and Sir has been unmatched and we with whole heart recommend this experience to all we come across.

This is the place to go for beautiful surroundings, the warmth and friendliness of home and the comfort of a luxury hotel. We spent four days here over Divali, waking up to a cup of tea on a verandah overlooking the lush tea estates and misty hills of Kotagiri and going for walks through the hills. The staff was wonderful, feeding us excellent south indian dishes for breakfast and dinner and laying out tea with homemade carrot cake ! The owners have spared no effort to make this a great place to stay.

From the moment one puts his foot past the gates of Raven's nest it only gets better. From the setting, to the landscaping, to the unending tea estates, to the awesome house the Srinivasan's have built. The attention to detail and above all the generous hospitality the experience at 'Raven's nest' with one of life's most memorable experiences. A place you would have to leave  and would simply love to come back Heaven....

We were utterly charmed by your beautiful bungalow done up with impeccable taste. We had a very relaxed stay and found it to be a perfect gateway from our crazy city life. Our children enjoyed themselves thoroughly as they could run around freely in the vast and safe confines of your beautiful garden. Your staff Rani, Mahesh and Deepak were very hospitable and ensured that our stay here was comfortable. We wish to come back here again and will definitely recommend this place to our family and friends.

Our 3 families stayed here for 3 days. A chance entry on the net caught our eyes made us come here. Out of many high class resorts we have stayed in the last 3 years, this is the best. Why? The location, layout of rooms, ambiance, facilities, food and support by staff are excellent. The library is out this word – not caraway books donated by various people but new books of contemporary authors and dozens of new comics for kids. Thanks for a wonderful stay and wish you all the best.

“This is a lovely getaway spot in Kotagiri, not too far from Kodanad View Point. The area is nice, though there's perhaps not a whole lot to do. Luckily, the house itself is full of diversions, with a shelf of books, a pile of board games, a basketball hoop and badminton net, and very comfortable desks with wifi. It's a stellar place for a family or friends' vacation. Joseph, the gardner, took me on a little walk in the forest, pointing out trees and birds and the gates to fancy European bungalows. The food was delicious. Vidya, Anita, and Suresh were all extremely helpful before the trip, and were completely flexible when I had to reschedule. Thanks for a great trip!”

Congrats on a beautifully run homestay. We were visiting Kotagiri primarily to see a sick Uncle, but having a night here made it also a special ‘holiday’. It was a little quiet with no other guests and the hosts away, but the team provided for all our needs. The place was immaculate & the food delicious! Especially enjoyed the delightful garden & views, especially on our early morning walk with mist over the valley. Hope you get rain soon.

A Big Thank You for Raven’s Nest. If this isn’t heaven then where else. Coming from hospitality background & Hussle city mundane life, this was a real gateway for all mental baggage to leave behind. Talking about these amazing courteous assets like Deepak & Rani & Mary others, couldn’t ask for more. Every corner, room is tastefully done & we loved it.
