House By Lake - Muhamma

Secluded; tucked away; far from the madding crowd; tranquil; serene; bathed in quietude, held secret; are all synonymous with the House by the Lake, yet what's so special about this lakeside property is the fact that no other place perhaps, provides you such an idyllic ambience to read a book and forget everything!

Yes, everything disappears, even the wonderfully built house you stepped into fades into the background and while you immerse yourself into that paperback you always wanted to finish, you will be interrupted only by the occasional `kawkaw' of a crow or the sound of waves, gently slapping the lakeshore when a lone boatman wades across the expansive waters in front of you. Never has doing nothing been so enervating!

That's only one of the few moments when you are reminded of where you are, right on the lake front of Kerala's largest lake, the Vembanad Lake, far away from the usual tourist spots and situated in a quiet village in the middle of `God's Own country'.


Easily accessible from the main arterial road, NH 47 (tucked 6 kilometres away), the village of Kaipuram where the Lake House is located has a temple, a Hindu shrine, Chinese fishing nets, coir making cottage industries, a bustling local market and a host of `inconsequential', non tourist, interesting places, all within cycling distance. Now that's `to do' during the break between books!

So this time round, have a holiday for your heart, for your soul and be our guest!
