Plantation Trail is one of the most relaxing places I have ever experienced in Coorg till date.
The property is surrounded by lush green farm and forest. There is a natural pond amidst the property which is relaxing with a hammock and stone benches. This place is great for bird watchers. You can easily spot kingfisher, Asian green bee eaters, sparrows, doves, and other variety of birds.
Mr. Vittal is the owner of the property; he says the property is more than 100 years old! He has retained several items which were used by his ancestors for display. He has ensured to preserve the beauty and heritage of this place. He is one of the humblest persons I have met in recent times. He made sure we spend our stay with utmost comfort and suggested sight-seeing places as per your taste.
The rooms were clean, very comfortable, and the staff was amazing. They went over and beyond to help make our stay enjoyable. Do not expect luxurious rooms, they are clean and tidy, rustic and give you a feel of being connected with nature.
The food was delicious with special mention to Rasam (the best I have had till date). You can just keep sipping it again and again. Dosa and akki rotti were equally delicious. They serve you different varieties, though we were veg and non-veg group of 3 people they ensured everything is served at its best. The food is very simple yet tasty. The host even offered us to provide packed food if we are going on full day sight-seeing.
We had planned for a 2 night stay and could not cover many places due to rain. The day we checked in we visited Honnammanakere which is 7km drive from the homestay. It is calm devoid of people and a scenic beauty.
Next morning, we visited Malhalli waterfalls (an amazing falls) which is an hour drive from the homestay, this place had many tourists due to heavy rain could not spend much time. Around 3 pm we visited Gavi betta despite the rain. I was skeptical in the beginning and had thoughts of cancelling this place due to rain and the google review did not amaze me. After visiting this place I was totally blown away by its beauty. Google definitely did not do justice to this place. This is a must visit place. The Jeep ride to Gavi Betta was the most amazing experience I have had in Coorg. If you get to see the sun set consider yourself luckiest one. It was a full paisa wasool experience.
Great ambiance. Delicious food and great place to relax with family or friends. Very good place and feel like you are staying with nature.

It was a great stay at Plantation Trails. The team at Trailroot arranged everything in a superb way. The property owner is very welcoming and both the food and accommodation is just wonderful.
Our entire team loved the experience and stay.
Very good ambience and caring host. Food was awesome. Cant find any blemish on the treatment. We were 2 families stayed there for 2 nights. Will recommend to my friends too.
Apart from the homestay and its ambience, guests need to understand this place is bit far away from the main tourist spots.
Food was good. Host was very warm and kind. Homestay was clean and neat. We travelled with two infants, so we were very particular about hygiene. Satisfied with food, hygiene and their hospitality.

Kids had the best time with pet birds and the swing.
The nearby pond is scenic.
We visited in August when it was raining Continuosly and hence couldnt enjoy much , summers might be the best time to visit.
Also there were few mysterious bites on us. Could be bed bugs in the rooms. not sure.
Rest of all the services are perfect and many thanks to host and the boys to provide everything that we asked for.
Plantation Trails is one of the highly rated homestays in Sakleshpur. All credit goes to host and his team who does everything to ensure guests are comfortable. The property is beautiful and well maintained. We, group of 6 friends had a fantastic time.
We had a very good stay. It was comfortable, clean rooms, and good food. Lot of activities also for family and individuals to indulge in.

MARUTHI UJWALJun, 2019
Well, We (Family) stayed in PlantationTrails from 27-29th May 2019. We had an year old kid with us and were really worried about her food as this was the first time we were taking her out. Chirag from Trailroot suggested us this place. This was a risk which we took and moved on with our journey.
To my surprise, Host called me a day in advance and provided me a detailed route and google maps link. And it was spot on. We reached Plantation Trails homestay around 01:30PM on 27th. We were received well by the host and his team. One more thing we had in mind was we needed an extra bed and we had not informed them in advance. But the room allocated had extra bed and sufficient place for our baby to sleep and play. I too had the luxury to sleep well on separate cot with mattress. Our baby was very happy seeing the location. Room was clean and tidy. They provided us with well maintained and clean towels, soaps and tooth paste. Each bathroom has gas geyser fitted so hot water is regularly available.
Food : This was what we thought as a challenge specially for our baby. However, food was so good that we did not face any issues. We did not have to prepare anything extra for the baby as she had whatever was available and stomach full. It was tasty, fresh and great. Cook is really good. We were served delicacies like Shavige (sweet) with coconut milk. Coorg style Kadubu or Kadambuttu which was really tasty. Hot chapatis, great sambar and spicy rasam made us feel very comfortable and homely. Im not sure of Non-veg food as Im a vegetarian. Im sure since location is in coorg, non-veg will definitely be tasty. Akki Roti and Dosa were amazing. Veg food in Coorg tasting so well was a surprise for me. Evening coffee/tea and snacks like bajji is available.
Location : it was a nice location with coffee estate all round you. However we wanted to relax and did not move around much. Its really a nice place, you can travel to nice locations like Jain temple [non-functioning] (4Kms) from estate. Other places are little far ranging from 25-30 kms. Its really good place for people in groups as well as family. You can trek around the estate and host or his team will take you around if you wish to. He also has some birds like Emu, Peacock, Hens etc.... There is turtle as well. House surrounded by garden with good variety of flowers. You have small man made pond with ducks and fishes. For nature lover this is a paradise.
Games : There are variety of games and activities. You can play cricket, shuttle. They also have archery and shooting. Tried my hands on both it was really nice.
Host :Host is a very generous man. He has a good team members. Mr Ranjan and Darshan. They both helped us specially with food for baby. My wife, kid and myself were present. Only one of us could eat at a time as we one of us had to manage the baby. Both Ranjan and Darshar we so patient in serving us. They made sure they served us food in proper quantity there by making sure we eat well and no food is wasted as well. They also washed our babys vessel voluntarily. There is no time limit here for dinner and Mr Vittal is very co-operative with it. He knows the mindset of people who wish to party. Unlike other homestays, they do not force us to finish off the dinner soon. All of them are polite. We had good conversation with Mr Vittal, Ranjan and Darshan. They were really happy to host us.
There is also Fire camp available during party with nice cement benches. There is also a place only to party and food will be supplied there.
Thank you Chirag for suggesting my place. Thank you Mr Vittal, Ranjan and Darshan for being so good and genuine. Will visit with friends once again whenever possible. Best part about stay was our baby enjoyed a lot. She still isnt walking if she had, then it would have been amazing for all of us. Thank you once again.
This is the best homestay you can ever get in Coorg. This will be my regular hangout going forward. Amazing host and his team is fantastic. Cheers, Chetan
Finest day we had in Plantation Trails. Ambience, Food, Cleanliness 5Star. Vittal and his Staff are very professional and know how to take care of Guests
Definitely would recommend family outing.
First of all I thank Trailroot for suggesting us Plantation Trails. Host was a perfect and made our stay very comfortable. The resort is in natures wonderful scenery. The nearby spots of bislecghat, basveshwara temple, pushpagiri, malhalli falls was best places we visited. I would rate 5 stars for hospitality, delicious food and cleanliness for Henchinamanne. Excellent team of Vittal Sir and his boys.

First of all I would like to thank Chirag for suggesting such a wonderful place for vacation. Its been three years he has always planned good location for me according to my requirements. Thanks again Chirag.
Now regarding homestay a awesome home-stay words fall short to explain about the location, host Vital, food, rooms and employees working there. It is 217kms from bangalore and very good drive to reach the spot. It has complete road connectivity to reach there and google map to show the path.
Property is very well maintained, rooms are spacious and clean. Toilets and beds are maintained neat and clean.
The food was very good and tasty and severed hot always. They never compromised with quality and quantity.
About Vittal you ask anything to him he never says no or cant do, he has learnt the art of keeping customer happy during stay, very interactive person. Vittal Sir I liked your positive attitude.
The employees are always smiling well trained and ready to help attitude. Special thanks to Abhi for his service.
I rate 5 out of 5 to Plantation Trails homestay and suggest to all people who are planning to spend a quality time with family or friends away from bangalore life.
Supper accommodation and food. The staff and the owner - Vital are so cordial and caring. Will visit again. Surrounded in the middle of the coffee estate, you will get to see some lovely pets like Emu, Turkeys and ducks swimming in the pond.
GURUPADA RAYDec, 2018
The expectations were beyond what we expected. we had wonderful weekend. Big big thanks to owner Mr. Vittal and team.
Only one small suggestion, this property can have few activities for kids, so that we can plan for family get together too!
Thanks to Usha mam of Trailroot for suggesting this place.
I would recommend everyone to go through trailroot.in. The co-ordination, selection of the place direction to the place is so precise. Chirag goes out of his way to assist traveller and provide them information abt the place and what to see and expect. Mr. Vittal the host at cowcody was simply fantastic.. the food was simply wonderful and he ensured that our every need was fulfilled hospitality really speaks here . A must go place for all... .

SURESH REDDYJan, 2018
Stay was very nice and Mr vittal owner received us like family members coming home... Checking everything and keeping everything ready on time...food is awesome coorg style/malanad style especially mng breakfast was too good...home is in the middle of the big coffee estate looks splendid... Its great experience tx to.. Mr vittal and Usha ji(trail root)..
It was very nice place and good food. We enjoyed it. Thanks for all.
Henchinamane homestay is extraordinary. Better than what we expected. Their receiving, food, facilities, maintenance and everything there is awesome. We thought to stay there only in our next visit. But trailroot staff Mrs/Smt/Kumari Usha is provided us far away homestays to the places we want to visit. She was not guided us well. You can give near Dubare elephant park not that much far places at Madikeri... Or she has to explain very clearly about the places and distances to these places. If possible on google route map with places and distances.
Beautiful offbeat location
value for money
GOPINATH SSep, 2015
Awesome Place. Vittal is very helpful. Very good food. Simple and best. Good place to relax and rejuvenate. I would love to go again...
Torfenster Systems (India) Pvt. Ltd.Aug, 2015
We were not quite sure about the level of hygiene and quality of the food. After reaching there, first impression was a feel good and as the day enhanced it was really a place where one deserves to be for a home stay completely isolated from the busy traffic. Home stay covered with thick plantations around and the whispering birds and the chilled weather makes environment more pleasant. Excellent service from all the staff who were friendly and helpful at all times.Food and snacks was just yummy. Service and quality is more then expected !!
Special thanks to Mr. Vittal who was a shining light during our stay. PlantationTrails Homestay is a beautiful property, maintained by him.It has lovely greenery around with traditional style cottages with modern comfort amenities. It was truly a memorable experience! Absolutely brilliant and highly recommended!
Really worth staying.
Great experience , I ever seen Mr.vittal kind of person he is very helpful and excellent care of us definitely we would recomended this homestay to my friends and family
PAVAN SAIMay, 2015
Absolutely wonderful place. Very peaceful. The hosts Mr. Vittal and his wife are such lovely people. Food is delicious and amazing. Took excellent care of us. We went as a family. Arranged a person to take us to all places around. The cook was just so happy to feed us with anything we asked for. Excellent preparation. Good for a peaceful family outing sit and relax. They arranged bonfire in the night to make merry. Also it is a nice place if a group of friend would like to go. Cheers Mr. Vittal.
I had totally forgot to mention that the day we arrived there was a local get together organised in this homestay. And every other person who owns an homestay in this are were amazed to look at how beautiful this homestay is. Really worth staying.
The homestay was very clean and neat. Mr. Vittal and his staff were very friendly and treated us with smiling faces always. They even cooked us food which was not part of their menu. Even though there was another group at the homestay, we never heard them or saw them as the 2 cottages are spaced in such a way that we are completely away from the other group. I would definitely recommend this place for a medium to large group.
Plantation Trails Homestay has been pleasant experience and specially appreciate hospitality extended to us by Mr.vittal and his staff. they were eager to/obliged all our request. location is good an
The place was awesome and maintained very neat and clean... hospitality was exceptional and they made us feel at home... Mr. Vittal and his staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay... food was great and served in a very hygienic manner... i would definitely recommend this place for a family/ friends outing....

Definitely, Mr.Vittal is the man !!!!!!!
1.DIRECTION TO THE DESTINATION TO BE PUT

PlantationTrails Homestay was fabulous and we are very much impressed with Vittal and his team members there.
Their hospitality was ecstatic and phenomenal. 100/100 scores I will give them.
Tirtha GuhaJun, 2014
The bad things.
1. It is required to put mosquito nets in the windows. There are no mosquitoes, but there are a lot of bugs.
2. The generator facility is not available in the night and powercuts are long and freqent, nobody wakes up to run the generator, and its hot and stuffy in the rooms.
3. The directions to this place can be confusing. This place can be reached from Channarayaptna, or from Kushalnagar, or from Mysore.
The good things.
1. The owner of the estate, Mr. Vittal, and his team will do anything to make you comfortable.
2. We got our choice of food and other arrangements.
3. The rooms were beautiful wooden structures and exceptionally clean and hygienic.
We would love to visit this place again.
We had an enjoyable stay @ PlantationTrails. The staff were attentive & catered to all our needs. Nilesh needs a special mention, he took us around everywhere with such genuine joy & enthusiasm...may his tribe increase!...some good local food too. Wished there was an xtra bathroom in the cottage we stayed & a ceiling fan....we would definitely recco the place!

This trip was a long pending with my friends since 2 years we finally made it happen. The PlantationTrails Homestay is really serene, peaceful and beautiful. The staff and Mr.Vithal are very nice and their hospitality was no less than any 5 star experience all of them are so simple and down to earth which made our trip even more pleasant and one to remember for ages.
