Pepper Trial Home Stay is a brain child of Mrs. Ashwini Karumbaiah. We have started it on June 2012. Our guests have always admired our interest in taking care of the place and the facilities we provide. True to its name ‘Home stay, ‘Pepper Trail’ is not a commercial establishment. Its a Home away Home. Very opt for the families, who prefer to stay amidst of the nature and the sounds of the birds.

Had a relaxed vacation after a longtime! Perfect place for those who wants to keep themselves away from busy life and stay amidst nature. As we planned the trip suddenly, one of our family friend suggested this homestay, just dialed-in our host Poovanna and booked it right away!! And the decision proved right, the homestay located at a very excellent location. Cool breeze with lipsmacking homely snacks, filter coffee :-) tasty hot starters, dinner, bonfire...ensures you get warm sleep😴 Who wouldn't like to wake up to the birds chirping..go on a walk to the estate... Kids who hardly get to hear different melodies of birds in the city love this place for sure. Also my daughter was very happy at the sight of well with pulleys to pull water, sunny sun hidden behind the clouds☁️, coffee beans everywhere🤩 Cute little kittens and love birds kept my daughter busy here 😊 The homestay is just 2-2.5 kms away from Iruppu falls, a must visit falls I say...icy waterfalls to get drenched with 😁 and Nagarhole Safari just about 15-20mins drive.. On the whole I would recommend this stay to all my friends and families.... Thanks to Poovanna & family for the nice hospitality, traditional food, being friendly and approachable throughout our stay. Also thanks to Pradeep for being supportive....

My wife and I selected Pepper Trail with recommendations from a friend. Was travelling to Coorg for the first time, with two kids and two senior citizens. You can select this place if you have any of the below on your short vacation list : 1. Authentic Kodava Cuisine 2. JLR Safari at Nagarhole National Park 3. Iruppu Water Falls 4. Stay amidst nature with cicadas and cricket chirps through the night 5. Zero or limited network connectivity 6. Misty mornings and cold nights 7. Wake up call by the chirping of birds We stayed here for two nights on 13th & 14th Jan and thoroughly enjoyed all of the above. Poovanna (host) ensured we were comfortable, despite the glitches in both the restrooms. Each room can accommodate 6 pax, though we had requested and got two rooms for stay. For some of our family members who were having difficulty with coconut flavour in the cuisine, Poovanna prepared dishes without coconut still trying his best to maintain the authentic local cuisine. Iruppu falls is within a jogging distance (2.5 km) and Nagarhole safari a 20 mins drive. We had our own vehicle, so no problem in reaching these places. Walking trail is small - 250 meters approx, but for adventure seekers - you can make your own trails in the coffee estate. Both the geysers were not working - though Poovanna could finally sort it out for at least one restroom. An alternate wood fired geyser (as back up) could be helpful in such Situations since repair work takes time due to remote location. A cute pet cat kept my daughter busy throughout, though my wife despises cats. I was told that this one was vaccinated annually. Airtel works here in a limited way. Vodafone, Jio didn't work at all. It was a blessing in disguise - helped us to stay away from our cell phones. With such huge space available, few indoor game items like carrom, table tennis, chess, badminton etc will help family bond when they are not exploring nature. Just a suggestion. An excellent place for family stay. Thank you. Will visit again.
