In two very private cottages in the woods are three rooms to choose from. Each of the two rooms in the main cottage has a large bed, and a very attractive attic space with an additional bed so a family of 4 can easily be comfortable in there. A common verandah connects both rooms, and there are individual sitouts for both as well. The Red Cedar cottage which is in a more wooded part of the property has a large bed that can easily accommodate 2 adults. Add in beds can easily accommodate one additional adult in each room.

In true sense rooms/cottages are amidst the woods. In between the coffee plantation they have maintained other spices trees, climber etc. Lush green. Care taker is a nice person and was prompt in service. Since it was during Covid times there was scanty of staff, yet the person (i think Krishna) along with his wife made sure to serve us with authentic Coorg delicacies. Neat and clean rooms. Overall enjoyed the stay.

Finally, we did the "vacation" this year. This was supposed to happen in August. All we wanted was to go, with our dog, be pampered with yummy simple local food and peace and quite. This is exactly what we got. The caretaker Roshan and his wife did quietly and super efficiently whatever we wanted. Even a birthday cake was arranged. The campfire, barbeque, every meal - though within limited options, always chosen by us, the timely coffees and snacks. We enjoyed the walks, long and short runs, visiting non tourist empty picnic spots, sleeping on the grass and on the adventurous side, thanks to Nivar - fed some leeches, the dog fed many more, took some macro shots of non-venomous snakes, observed so many birds. Over all, we entered a peaceful bubble for an extended weekend and came out rejuvenated. Thanks Linger and Team.

My husband and I visited the Three Wooded Acres with our two doggos to escape the Diwali crazies back in the city. We drove down from Bangalore via the Hassan road and reached in 6 hours, with all the necessary stops. The moment we took the left from the dam into the Monnengeri Village, we knew we had stepped into a parallel universe. The road leading up to the property was lined up with trees and shrubs along a narrow road, which opened up to a beautiful farm. Our host, Kishan was waiting for us with his signature warm smile, and helped us move our luggage and showed us the room. We stayed in the Red cedar cottage (single floor, spacious, slightly secluded, clean big loo with private sitout, ideal for couples and small families of 3) for 2 nights and preferred this so that our dogs wouldn't cause any inconvenience to other guests staying there. Our cottage was surrounded by tall, looming trees and we could hear the sound of the mountain wind through the soft rustling of the leaves. There was a hammock nearby where we would go to simply lose ourselves, either with a book or without, with our music or without. It was the perfect place to unwind, detach ourselves from all the worries of work etc. and simply be in the moment, without a care in the world. One could go for long walks within the property, and outside it - into the neighboring village roads and farms; it was a blessing for our doggos as they thoroughly enjoyed every walk. On our walks, we spotted some beautiful and rare-looking insects that we wouldn't even have noticed if we weren't in the frame of mind that any Linger property puts you in. We also experienced one of a kind hospitality, thanks to Kishan and Uma. Kishan is the one man army, managing the place and is forever ready to help out with a smile, no matter how busy he is or how outrageous your request is! Uma fed our stomachs and souls with absolutely delicious warm home food - Coorgi pork curry, sambar, rasam, palya - they even prepared and packed food for us for our return journey so we wouldn't have to stop at some random eatery on our way. The lovely black coffee that we would wake up to, truly set the tone for each day and should not be missed. We spent one night at the Jackfruit cottage, which is right next to the Indian aspen. This Linger property has a very strict policy of keeping the room empty for 24 hours post sanitization before allowing any guests in, hence the need to shift rooms. This cottage is also beautiful, with an attic. Kids will definitely love it. There were books and board games, to keep yourself occupied as well. Our stay at TWA was absolutely dream-like - we saw fireflies in the night, we danced around the bonfire, we connected with Nature like never before - and cannot wait to return. Would recommend this place to every Nature lover who wants a spiritual escape from the chaos of modern life and revel in the joy of doing nothing. The Italians have a phrase for it - Bel far niente (the beauty of doing nothing) - and it truly can be experienced at TWA, Coorg.

We are so glad that you and your doggos had a great time and were able to stay in Red Cedar as well as in Jackfruit. While firefly season is in April but you were lucky to spot them in Oct. Looking forward to hosting you again in the near future.

A holiday at Three Wooded Acres was in our agenda for March 2020, but thanks to the spanner thrown in the works by Covid, we had to postpone all plans until later. With things seeming to ease, we took the opportunity of leaving home after many lockdowns to spend a few days in October. Three Wooded Acres is the fourth Linger property we were visiting and it lived up to the growing expectations we had gotten accustomed to when it comes to visiting a Linger managed home. Though simple and basic, their standards are pretty high when it comes to comfort, cleanliness and food. The property, around 10 KMs from Madikeri, is tucked away nicely in a coffee plantation, well hidden under the tall trees around. The sound of flowing water at the Kootu Poley dam marks your exit from the beaten path to the less trodden road which leads to TWA. This road itself would be a good walk early in the mornings and in the evenings, where you just listen to the calls of birds and listen to the noise of the insects (not to mention the occasional smell of Elephant dung). We were invited to our rooms by the chirping of the Cicadas located in the trees outside. Though we found it loud initially, you realize that it adds to the natural ambience of the place. Surprisingly (and thankfully), they seem to be active only during the day. Visiting after the effects of Covid left some apprehensions on how safe the place would be but we were assured that cottages were isolated for a couple of days after each guest checked out. Subsequent to this, they were cleaned before being allocated to other guests. The room (as always with any Linger property) was spic and span with a clean loo. The air in the room smelt of an oil based incense, giving a warm feeling to the whole place. Accommodation is through two cottages, one that is slightly isolated and private in a corner of the property with a single room and another that houses two rooms with an attic space, named Indian Aspen and Jack Fruit. We chose, rather, were recommended Indian Aspen. It did not disappoint. An area between the two rooms doubles up as a laid back lounge with a small library holding some interesting books on the Western Ghats and some board games. More importantly, it’s spacious enough to seat guests of both rooms comfortably. In addition to this, each room also gets another dedicated sit out. Whoever thought of the attic space is a genius. It can comfortably sleep two adults, gets cozy and warm in the evening, complimenting the cold weather outside. Needless to say, this was the preferred location for the kids to set up base for the four days we were here. Food is served in the dining area that also serves as the quarters for the (excellent) caretaker host, Kishan and his family. Dining area is in an open space overlooking the trees which enables you to spot many birds flying around. In fact, the small open space around this building serves as a very good surrounding for bird spotting. Food served is mostly local Malnad cuisine with a mix of few dishes from Mangalore and Udupi. It’s always served hot, Kishan quickly sets up things after you’ve arrived at the dining are to ensure that the food is always hot. He also checks on your preference for the next meal and tries to keep variety in the food that is served. In the four days we were there, we didn’t have any course that was repeated. There was enough choice! The area around TWA has a lot of options for hikes and walks, but given the effects of the pandemic, locals were not very enthusiastic about movement of visitors and hence most of these were closed. Nevertheless, the property has much to give if you are the type who enjoys listening to the sounds of nature while doing nothing or just reading a book. We enjoyed the time at TWA and we look forward to going back sometime. Our children, aged 10 and 7, took an instant liking to watching and spotting birds. The small booklets giving an idea of the trees and birds around was very helpful towards this. One rainy evening, seated in the rocking chair reading a book, I fell asleep in the silence of the surrounding. I woke up to a periodic, unusual chattering and fluttering noise. Upon opening my eyes, right there, in front me, perched on the tree was a Malabar Grey Hornbill. I couldn’t spot it immediately, but their movement helped and it was not just one but a whole clan of 5 or 6, fluttering around in the trees! They hung around for a few minutes flying about while we watched them in awe. A priceless feeling and memory to take away after a good break from the mundane routine. Some points, if you’re considering a trip up there * Carry a binocular (I did and it helped) * Carry torch lights to enable movement outside after dark. * It’s a small hike to the cottage from the parking space. It would be easy if you pack light and reach there early, before dusk.

With the world not becoming any better, what a time to be alive just now! And what better place to get engulfed in this feeling than Linger! This property will take you back to those lazy afternoons and serene evenings that slowly faded away from our city lives. From the secluded cottages to amazing local cuisine to those authentic cups of endless coffee, this is a place to surely connect with you in a different way. Wake up in the morning surrounded by bird calls, listen to wind rustling in some seriously tall trees all around and end the day listening to the sounds of cicadas and crickets. So do nothing and let nothingness absorb you in itself, because time stops here!

We stayed at this place for a week and really loved our stay. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful , secluded stay close to Bangalore to soak in some nature. The food cooked by the caretakers (Kishan and Uma) was absolutely fantastic. I will definitely stay here again in the future!

This is a long pending review... Though I wanted to write this review in March itself, COVID prevented me from doing so... When we were being encouraged to stay at home, didn't think it would be appropriate to write about how much we enjoyed TWA. We went to TWA to celebrate our wedding anniversary and wow! What a memorable anniversary it was!! The best part about TWA is that you can sneak into Madikeri town in an auto for 30 rupees! No no.. that's not the best part, best parts are the ambience, excellent hosts, amazing food... And the list goes on... When Linger claims that they are a " do nothing vacation", it's so very true.. you really don't require a television, your cellphone, nothing... Just sit back and relax as Kishan and his family ( the caretakers) spoil you with their amazing hospitality... Unlimited coffee, to me at least, it seemed like unlimited food! It was really like staying at my mom's, being waited upon hand and foot.. We had the opportunity to interact with the neighbors too, and understood what true kodava hospitality means. But for the lockdown, we would have probably extended our stay! So go on,a do nothing vacation, or now that they are offering workations, stay for a month and enjoy working in the lap of nature.

The pandemic for a lot of us has meant that our home has become our world. With no access to any of the hustle and bustle of regular holidays, this seemed like a great escape. And it truly was one of the best decisions this year. The serenity this stay provides is therapeutic. It's green, quiet and beautiful. I would spend my days working in the balcony area looking at the trees (yes, the wifi works just fine), and walk around the winding roads in the evenings. The food is divine. Uma cooked us a spread every meal, and we def gained an extra kilo post this trip. All in all, this is an experience worth trying out.

From to cosy cottages to scenic views of waterfalls and jungles, this trip to Coorg has been wonderful. Kishan the caretaker with his wife cooked us yummy food. His pork and fish curry is a must try for anyone who comes here. As the name suggests, doing nothing here never got boring. We enjoyed exploring the property and checking out the kitchen garden which has a variety of fruits and vegetables. Didn't want to come back! Kudos to the team.

Second visit to a Linger property. Booking and checking in was a breeze. The reservation desk, owner and the care taker Kishan were constantly in touch to assist Place is just 2 KMS off the main road just outside coorg but looks like settled deep inside forest Clean and spacious rooms. Nothing to do except laze and lounge and rest Food is homemade, simple and good. One tip on the food though - Kishan and his wife are the only caretakers available and it's a stretch to make food on demand, so plan the menu bit in advance. Kishan was very always around and did bonfires every evening well into the night A very good place for a 2 night trip
