If you’re in Coorg, it only makes sense to go a step further and look for gorgeous homestays instead of hotels for your stay to make it extra amazing. We’ve done the job for you so that you can go get your bags packed and your tickets booked. You’re welcome. By Shubhanjana Das

1. 27trees Homestay

We understand if you don’t want to be taken away from the coffee plantations. And so, we have found you a cosy, wooden homestay bang on the foothills of the Brahmagiri, with coffee estates on one side and the hill on the other. Suites and private gardens, anyone?

2. Woodland Bungalow

Even though this Bungalow is well-known to the locals, it may have required quite a bit of asking around for you to find this beautiful haven, which is a cottage situated at 3000m above sea level. Quite a few tourist attractions in Coorg are its neighbours, but the interiors of the place will make it difficult for you to leave Woodland Bungalow.

3. Hilltop Heritage Homestay

Located amidst imposing mountains in Karnataka with a perpetually misty landscape, Coorg is the place to be in to soak in the bounties of nature.  Misty hills, lush forest, tea and coffee plantations, orange groves, undulating streets and breathtaking views have made Coorg an unforgettable destination. Coorg, officially known as Kodagu, is the most affluent hill station in Karnataka and you'll see streams cutting right through the beautiful green hills. It also stands as a popular destination because of its culture and people. The Kodavas, a local clan specialising in martial arts, are especially known for their keen hospitality. This is the hanging bridge inside the Kaveri Nisargadhama Forest Park.

When getting to your accommodation takes 4km’s worth of off-road driving amidst silver oak trees, you know you’re onto something. And Hilltop Heritage Homestay is no ordinary homestay. The advantage of being perched on the hilltop? Panoramic views of the forest and the nearby Tadiandamol peak that one would kill for! The five rooms of the homestay make enough space for as many as 19 people and the interiors have a rustic yet authentic south Indian home feel to it.

4. Casa Coorg Homestay

This homestay is ideal for couples and small groups, especially those who don’t shy away from trying their hand in adventure sports. The Coorg Institute of Adventure Sports is just 100m away and the property itself sits amidst coffee plantations. The hosts offer lovely, home-cooked food for an experience truly blissful.
