Nestled in a lush tea garden, Raven's Nest is a guest house surrounded by silver oak trees and flowering plants. The lawns are the perfect place to breathe in the pristine Nilgiri Hills air, while the dappled shade of the deck is a cozy corner to curl up with a book. Its recycled teak wood floors and doors have stories to tell of faraway lands. The three-bedrooms with orthopedic mattresses will help rid you off your big city stress.
This bright-and-cheerful Bed-and-breakfast, which somebody called a bird’s nest, is perched on the Aracombai road, in Tanthnaad, just off Pandian Park in Kotagiri. The deck and large picture windows give you a spectacular view of the valleys and hills of Kotagiri and beyond.
Surrounded by tea bushes, Chalet Mon Ami is 5-kilometers from Kotagiri town and a two hour drive from Coimbatore airport.
This is a fictional narrative based on real events at two ends of the spectrum, playing out concurrently:
a) Living in Mumbai and trying to build a house in the Nilgiris
b) Facing the prospect of the house one is living in being demolished
People without any experience in house construction would be considered foolish to try and build a house in the mountains thousand kilometers from where they live.
