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.

Blue Ridge is amazing homestay, away from the hustle bustle of the main town. You will be living between tea gardens with fantastic view on all the sides. The owners have been thoughtful in providing the amenities. They have equipped the home with basic necessities like TV, Cable Connection, WiFi, kitchen equipments. Hair Dryer, Press & Heaters are provided in the room cupboard. Charles, the caretaker, has been very accommodating, made sure we were very well taken care of. He makes delicious South Indian food. Just make sure to give him exact instructions, if you have some particular preferences. All in all, the place is perfect to sit back and relax. You might not even feel the need to go out sight-seeing.

Great place for a secluded excuisite vacation with family and friends. The wooden cottages are designed aesthetically with every need And comforts. Loved the simple yet elegant interior of the house with so comfortable beds. The property is well maintained and very clean. So close to nature that we were lucky to spot deers in the morning. Now coming to the most important factor- hospitality, we were made feel so homely by caretaker Charles and Rita. Special mention to them, always carry smile and ready to serve. Charles is a great cook, loved his food, hardly felt to eat outside. Altogether great experience and definitely would go back.
