This homestay is one of the pioneers of home stays in Kodagu, the name Hillyside has its origin from the British and has been around for over a hundred years. The cottages at Hillyside were originally built for a swamiji as it is a perfect setting for blessed people to become one with nature as they pursue higher spiritual goals.
