Fodor's Expert Review Mountain Club

Chinnakanal, Kerala, 685618, India

Fluttering eucalyptus trees frame an alluring resort of tile-roofed cobblestone cottages, some of them two-story. The cottages are well-spaced in this family-owned property, allowing each enough privacy; stone-lined pathways connect them. Even though you are 5,600 feet above sea level, the management has thoughtfully provided a pool. The views of Mattupetty Lake from your cottage veranda are memorable. Blond pine furniture adorns each of the rooms, and the overall decor is a mellow green-and-white, with eucalyptus trees etched on the walls. The family cottages with a living and dining area are more attractive but cost extra.
