Frequently Asked Questions
Are there many activities for children?
The Mudhouse Marayoor is a serene destination where your child (or inner child) can immerse in the nature through hikes, treks, cycling, forest baths etc. Kindly do not expect room service, TV, playgrounds etc as thats simply not what we are. Let your child run barefoot in the mud, help with farming or go firefly hunting. Let them see the world and love it for its beauty.
Will there be insects, mosquitoes or wild animals?
The Mudhouse is located in a 3 acre land that borders with the forest. Our staff are very stringent with their cleaning but changes in weather and the general ecosystem can result in the presence of occasional insects, moquitoes, lizards or frogs. Kindly let them be. Please be mindful of the same before you make a reservation with us.
Our property is also home to chickens, a rooster, a cow and its calf, 4 dogs, squirrels and a wide variety of birds. All of them are friendly and will not hurt you in anyways. We urge you not to feed them but if they let you, you are free to pet them as much as you want.

Are you pet friendly?
While we are all avid animal lovers here at The Mudhouse, our cottages were not constructed with pets in mind. We have since then understood the error of our ways. We are coming up with two brand new cottages where you can stay with your furry friends and have a relaxed holiday. Stay tuned for the same!
