“Great place to do nothing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

We stayed over the XMas Hols at Linger with a friend's family. As the name suggests, Linger is a great place to essentially do nothing, and catch up on some quality time with your family. If your idea of a vacation is getting up early for another day of action packed sight-seeing, well, Linger is not the place for you.
If you intend to slow down, spend time relaxing, drinking endless cups of coffee (my friend proved their website right that they do serve endless rounds of coffee :-) ), playing a game with your kids, reading a book, strolling around or just catching up on your sleep, Linger is the place.

The kids loved it, we loved it and overall it was a great getaway for us.

The only downside was the exceptionally cold weather in December, but you cant blame the resort for that, can you?

Located towards Bhagamandala, just off the main road, this village theme stay is a great experience. Not meant for folks who have a list of 'must-visit' and 'to do in Coorg' in terms of sight-seeing. They are better off staying towards Siddapura or some other such location.

Linger is meant for a leisurely getaway from the daily rigors, spending time with firends/family in a rustuc setup - mud-houses, paddy fields, a hilly horizon and a quick 10 min walk to the Cauvery. Cups of tea/coffee as you request them, sumptuous breakfast, lunch and dinner and lip-smacking snack in the evening.

A bonfire on request, you can shoo away the chills and then nature willing, see a sparkling display of the stars on beautiful sky in the nights. A well stocked library - comics, fiction and non-fiction, board games and some raquet games. All is fun!

Go ahead and experience it, let the memories linger on...

I spent this past weekend at Linger along with seven other friends. When the folks at Linger say that it is the best place to do nothing, well, it is correct!

The place has a warm, rustic charm to it and you will notice it within the first 15 minutes of stepping inside the house. The cottage overlooks a vast lush green field with mountains cordoning it off at one end and the rest of Chettimani village at the other.

There is a well-stocked bookshelf and a huge bunch of board games to choose from. For those just wanting to put their feet up and do 'nothing' grab one of the full length chairs in the verandah, and help yourselves to the never ending stream of chai/coffee/lemonade and delicious Coorgie food. Those who love nature photography are in for a visual delight! The sunset for one is pretty spectacular (will share some pics soon).

Last but not the least; the attendants are kind and gracious and always around for anything you might need/want.

If not for the lack of time could've very easily spent another week there.

We went on this short trip for two nights and came back wanting to linger longer. :) It's not any typical place, but a wonderfully relaxing, non-intrusive, be-yourself, do-nothing home. Very well thought-out and executed. The hosts are a friendly, unassuming, and helpful lot.

The facilities are comfortable, but yet simple and non-intimidating. The place is accessible, but still private. If you're someone who wants relaxation, time to be yourself away from the synthetic world, who likes to hear about and experience new places, languages, environs, food, etc., this is the place for it.

Best Experience:
* Early morning chirps of birds
* Entire family felt like themselves away from the ritualistic, monotonous city-life
* Home-cooked Coorgi food

Room Tip: If you get a chance to go as two families or an extended family, booking one full cottage will be a...

We had a wonderful day spent at linger at their coorg property. It is all well arranged and perfect quick getaway from Bangalore. Though visited coorg lot many times this stay was really different and would suggest linger as destination for anyone with a eye towards serene nature and a well maintained place to stay!
