Blue Ridge cottage is your home away from home, a cozy serene retreat nestling in the Ketti Valley of the Nilgiris. Our twin cottages blend into the natural beauty of the Ketti Valley, while retaining an elegant Victorian hill station charm.

The space

The "Ooty Stone House" ("Kal Bangala"), known to be the first ever bungalow built in Ooty, was the inspiration for our cottages. We have tried to incorporate some of the architectural elements from Sullivan's Kal Bangala. Our cottages blend into the natural beauty of the Ketti Valley, while retaining an elegant Victorian hill station charm. The cottage is furnished and decorated in the same theme, with raftered ceilings and fireplaces. The drawing rooms and bedrooms have spectacular views of the Ketti Valley. From your drawing room window, you could spot the Nilgiris heritage trains chugging along a ridge high above the cottage! Reproductions of English landscapes by Constable, and some of the French impressionists add to the ambience.

From the solid teak beams to the furniture made of real pinewood, the cottage is built and furnished from the very best of materials, with emphasis on high quality and comfort.

Guest access

Both the cottages, the private lawns and tea garden. We have also an open plan kitchen with basic facilities, should you like to prepare anything yourself.

Interaction with guests

A property manager locally available 24/7. A caretaker present on the property will take care of housekeeping and will provide high quality nutritious Indian meals.

Other things to note

Smoking is strictly prohibited. Guests are requested to avoid alcohol if possible. Breakfast is included in the package. For other meal requirements, we provide a very flexible option in that you can order to prepare food of your preference (subject to availability), and pay actuals. We charge a nominal INR 200/- per day as a service fee. This gives more freedom to pick and chose your own menu while minimizing the boarding expenses.

An absolute must for those who want to escape the busy and crowded Ooty town area! The scenic beauty complementing the beautifully designed house will surely make your stay a memorable one. Lastly, if you do decide to stay in this property then do not opt to order food from outside or dine in another restaurant- you "have" to taste the culinary expertise of the caretaker-Charles (a must!!) there was Kumar and Stalin to provide you with assistance with anything around the place. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone planning a trip to Ooty

Great location and super house. The bathrooms could have been a little better stocked - atleast with basic soap/shampoo. Similarly atleast 1/2 pots/pans in the kitchen. Super hosts, and Mr Charles made us very yummy food for both dinner and breakfast. Great great location, and tasteful house. Mr Vanniarajan was very helpful in coordinating. Only advice: if you are driving there, would suggest the main road from coonoor instead of lovedale road (its become bad cos of the rain). Great stay overall, and will definitely go back! Loved it :)

Stayed at tho property for 2 nights for my wife's budday ..... This is a great location with great views right outside our door .... the cook Charles and his wife were so helpful and gave us delicious food ..... They don't charge on food ... the charges are only for the groceries used for our food .. so the food was very pocket friendly ....I would strongly recommend you to stay at this Propert again and again as I will surely visit again

The house is very accurate to the Airbnb post. Location: it's secluded yet not very far from civilisation. You will need a car to get in and out of here. However, we wanted a house that was not in the commercial area, which was perfect for us. The house: its a beautiful house! Very comfortable. The caretaker: Charles was amazing! He cooked us some meals which were wholesome and delicious. I would highly recommend this house and will stay here again if available.

Pro's 1. Scenic View, the cottage is at a great location. Peaceful and away from city hustle bustle. The property has been maintained really well and the ambiance of the cottage is superb. 2. Driver - Rakesh was very helpful and prompt. Much recommended, if someone's is visiting ooty Con's 1, Room Service needs to be improved, waste needs to be clearly and disposed on daily basis. Fresh towels should be provided to guest on daily basis, without even guest asking for it. Wifi should be enabled. 2. Food quality and quantity need to be improved, breakfast should be provided on time. Charles is a great cook, considering he was unwell on the second day a alternate should have been provided or take away should have been arranged for us.

Cottage is perfect. Located nicely. Close to Ooty and Coonor but nested away nicely in a small tea estate. View from the cottage is fantastic and the place itself is very modern. The glass windows are great for the view of the estate/ hills. Don't miss out on the local cuisine. Charles is a superb cook. Highly recommended for a family get away!
