Evergreen County is a resort located in Virajpet, Coorg. You cannot call it a lodge, hotel or homestay. Basically, it is a themed based place for folks who love adventure, nature and young in spirits! The concept of this resort is unique. You have to ”Disconnect to Connect Yourself ” to enjoy this space. Evergreen County is 240 kms away from Bangalore. It was started in December 2009.
On entry into the county, you will see a banner “if you are looking for luxuries – keep yourself out of here”. Coorg Evergreen County is NOT THE TYPE for luxury holiday seekers expecting A/c, TV, Swimming Pool, Concrete Rooms etc.
When we reached the county, we were allotted a Cottage named “Yellow Yarrow”. Our cottage with ground and attic turned out to be very helpful because we could accomodate our luggages and car driver as well.
The cottages are constructed based on the 7 heavens concept. Each cottage is named after the rainbow colors. They have 5 types of cottages – tree top (“Jack N Jill”, “Wicked-Nest”), wooden (“Tiga Tiger”), bamboo (“Eva More”), tribal (“Mellow Yellow”) and cane (“Wicked Frills”). Tree Top cottages do not have attached washrooms. All other cottages will have attached western restroom along with the camper’s restroom from outside. There are around 13 cottages in total. I like the funky names given to cottages like “Indigo Indeed”, “Violet Vintage”, “Green Grass”, “Orange Olive”, “Blue Bubbles”, “Red Rose” etc. In addition to these there are “Traumwelt” Couple Cottage, “Taksh Kutira” The BiGGGG Boss Cottage and “County Wanderers” Camping Area. All rooms are smoking free. No Liquor will be served at Evergreen County, Guests can carry it from outside. The hay grass roof will keep the rooms cool. Evergreen County uses natural mosquito repellents like sambrani and lemon grass sticks to keep away mosquitoes and insects. Toiletries and towels should be carried by the guest. Cottage stay is ideal for 150 people. With adventure tents they can accommodate upto 180 people.
The cottages are set amidst the Coffee, Silver Oak, Pepper Plantation, Fruit Garden, Vegetable Garden and Pet Zoo. All rooms are of different interiors. The donkey is named as ” Lucky” and the horse is “Agasthya”.
There is a set-up called “Vibgyor” Stage with open ground for events and outdoor games. There is “County Game Zone” for Activities and ”Hunt Smart Shopee” for shopping.
They host all type of age groups. Kids upto 8 years are not chargeable. They also provide tented accommodations if you are interested in a camping experience. (Man v/s Wild )
Accommodation in the wooden cottage is itself an experience. All rooms are clean & tidy including Washrooms. The view from the rooms is great and the beds are comfortable enough to sleep well. You can get warm water for bathing! They steam to heat water in their “herbal bath” area.
The entire crew at Evergreen County are very courteous and extremely helpful. The hospitality is just great and one gets the comfort of our home here. The team is well committed.
Evergreen County is pet-friendly. Many pets are there inside “County Mini :Pet Zoo” at the property like birds, dogs, horse, donkey, and rabbit.
The Kodagu Homemade Cuisine buffet food is very tasty. There are Veg and Non-Veg options. Food is simply the best here. The cafe/ In House Kitchen is named “County Pit Stop”.
There are so many fun-filled activities and games like dance, cricket, badminton, campfire, barbecue, gun firing, trekking, plantation walk, jeep rides, treasure hunt etc.
We got to spend some quality time at night along with Bonfire and music. I stayed at Evergreen County for 2 days. Time was short and honestly, I couldn’t participate in many of the activities. An early morning fog covered walk through the resort was refreshing. It was nice to smiling faces all over. Evergreen County gave me a relaxing, stress-free and peaceful experience free of gadgets, mobile and other nuisances. I took many photos to remember my memorable moments at EverGreen County. Team Evergreen County is undoubtedly the best people I have ever met so far.
Parking is free but in open space. One need not worry about security as they have arrangements like CCTV coverage.
Evergreen County property is private fenced with no access to trespassers, with addition to the CCTV installed along with a security in charge to safeguard the guests safety. One of our members forgot important documents like driving license, cheque book along with debit cards and Rs 10,000 cash. The owner Bajan was kind enough to inform us immediately and he couriered the same to us. You can really trust this team !!
This place truly provides a wonderful holiday experience in Coorg. I met Tamil Serial Actor Venkat & his wife Nisha during my stay at Evergreen County.
Evergreen County is apt for travelers who want to escape for a while from their routine busy lifestyle and would like to explore the real beauty of nature and the culture of Coorg. Evergreen County also organizes many team outings and events for corporates. This place is also apt for a weekend getaway to experience some thrill without emptying your pockets. Evergreen County is the best place to hangout with friends and colleagues too apart from your family.
