Chengappa Estate Homestead

Coorg, Karnataka
Chengappa Estate Homestead

Story

Chengappa is a Homestead, somewhere between being home and beautifully short of being a rural farmstead. The doors open to a wide-angle view of a meadow that extends to the nearby forest land. An evening under the starry sky with the sound of Chengappa's water stream might make you want to get a sleeping mat out. Vinu who is a local Coorg boy hails from Bangalore where he ran his local Coorgi restaurant successfully for a decade before it was perhaps time to come back to his roots. The initial lot of travellers to Chengappa were none other than the foodies who were regulars at his restaurant. Vinu is an avid enthusiast of car racing and rock music and lives with his two helpers in the Chengappa homestead, where the feeling of exclusivity stays with you throughout your stay.

Notes

Mobile range is patchy in and around the property. Make sure you download the directions to the Chengappa Homestead before.

Chengappa has three very well-sized and placed rooms all in the main house where your host lives. Two have a front view of the fields and the water body. The third, a bigger room has a verandah and opens to the plantation on the entrance side of the property.

Chengappa Homestead is full of character. His lounge area includes an in-depth display of all the F1 car racing heroes, and a well-laid-out sitting area with old rock music vinyl records.

The Water body is unique to Chengappa which even after giving out half its irrigation capacity has a steady 5 feet depth of water for a quick swim on a warm afternoon.

Will be displayed soon.
