Honeypot homestay is situated at approximately 250 Kms from Bangalore the state capital, on the ghat section leading to Madikeri (the district headquarters of Kodagu also known as Coorg.). At our Coorg homestay we intend to redefine the Coorg homestay experience. Our aim is to provide all modern facilities and comforts amidst a jungle setting. If your stress buster or rejuvenation means a rural backdrop – a holiday with an idyllic setting in a cozy cottage- that has all comforts and luxury in the midst of coffee plants, rows of aracanut trees with vines of pepper, cardamom and vanilla climbing up around them. “Honey Pot Homes lives up to its Commitment”.
Madikeri is the picturesque town of Kodagu (also called Coorg), the land of coffee, cardamom, colonels and the Cauvery. The headquarters of Kodagu district, it is located in a beautiful hilly setting surrounded by the forest slopes of the Western Ghats. Here, time seems to have stood still. Dotted with a cluster of red-roofed dwellings and a bustling bazaar, the town, situated at an elevation of 1,525 m, has a charming old-world look. Not much is known about the early history of Kodagu. From AD 1600 onwards, the Lingayat Rajas ruled over Kodagu and established their capital at Madikeri where they built a mud fort. The Kodavas, as the people of Kodagu are called, troubled the Mysore rulers Hyder Ali and Tippu Sultan through sporadic rebellions. Finally, in AD 1785, Tippu marched into Kodagu with a large army and devastated the little kingdom.
