Cardamom House

Dindigul, Tamil Nadu, India

Cardamom house is an experiential lakeside homestay at Athoor near Dindigul offering offbeat and experiential traveller a cut off lakeside stay. Cardamom House overlooks the monsoon dependent Kamarajar Lake. This family home stay nestles in the unbelievably beautiful foothills of the Western Ghats. It provides Western comforts in a rural setting. British physician, Dr. Chris Lucas established Cardamom House in 1996. Here, you can retreat into nature, away from the bustle and noise of Indian towns. Spend your days relaxing; swimming in the flower-surrounded pool; reading; being creative with your camera, paints or pens; watching birds; or exploring the valley or further afield. At Cardamom House we have a wide range of visitors.  Kumar and the rest of the staff team are always alert for new visitors  .Here are some of the most recent visitors.  We have so many bird books to check out the names of the birds. It is good to see that many of them have been attracted by a full Lake.  The painted stork is an exotic visitor, which roosts in colonies on the far shore.
