#WeekendGetaways: Pet-Friendly Places In Coorg For Your Next Quick Holiday

    While Coorg’s scenic beauty, coffee plantations and local cuisine are tempting enough, we know how difficult it can be for pet owners when it comes to taking a vacation. Which is why we went ahead and picked out some pet-friendly homestays and cottages across Coorg. So now you can happily plan your getaway, without stressing about your pooch! Thank us later.

    The Road’s End

    Coffee Cottage Stay

    Scenic surroundings, plenty of coffee and your pet by your side, what more could you need for a perfect holiday? Offering a comfy three-bedroom cottage ideal for family trips or even getaways with your friends, Coffee Cottage Stay lets you enjoy the simple things in life. Whether it’s spending a morning lazing around on their beautiful sun terrace with your dog, or going for a refreshing walk, this is where you can enjoy it all.

    Price: INR 3,000 upwards

    The Road's End

    Blending rustic ambience with modern amenities, The Road’s End has riverside cottages with balconies that look out onto the lush green expanse outside. While their clubhouse with its array of activities {think indoor games and match screenings} and food {a bar counter to a daylong tea/coffee station}, adds to its appeal, what we love is that they welcome your pets with equal warmth. Even when you’re busy at a game of pool or off river rafting, your pooch can play around in the garden or just take a nap. While you’re at it, you could even plan a fishing trip with your dear pet!

    Price: INR 4,490 per night {weekdays}, INR 4,990 per night {weekends}

    Silent De Coorg

    We’d happily pick the Luxury Premium Studio here, just for the nice little balcony area, if not for the spacious room, homely food or conveniences {like a mini fridge, Wi-Fi and coffee maker}. With the breathtaking view it offers, it’s the perfect spot to sit back with a cup of strong coffee and a book, while your pet can curl up near your feet, snoozing in peace. However, being quite a small place, they might not be able to accommodate more than one pet.

    Price: INR 2,600 upwards {per night, including breakfast}

    D & D Orchards

    Ever wondered what it would be like to live in the midst of an orchard? Book yourself a room at D & D Orchards and you’ll get to know firsthand. There’s even a coffee and pepper plantation, just a short walk away! A villa that’s perfect for a complete family get-together or a group of families, the rooms here come with spacious verandahs, complete with sofas and hammocks. The best part? You can take your pets along as well {provided they aren’t more on the mischievous side}. While you have campfires and treks to add to your must-try list, there’s plenty of opportunities to go fishing or walking, if you’re hoping to spend some bonding time with your doggie.

    Price: INR 1,800 upwards {per night, including breakfast and lunch or dinner}

    Rare Earth Estate

    Whether you decide to go sightseeing in Madikeri with your pooch or just lounge about at this homestay, soaking in its oldworld charm, Rare Earth Estate is bound to be a great choice. When you’re done admiring the charming decor and surroundings, there’s local cuisine to sample {with specials for your pooch, available on request} and tourist spots to check out. Or just sit back and enjoy the view from your verandah while your pet does what they do best – be their good old, lazy selves.

    Price: INR 4,990 upwards {per night, includes breakfast for two}

    Sanjose Holiday Home

    Surrounded by deep forest, this homestay might feel like you’re a world away from the city {although Virajpet town is just 5 kms away}. Don’t be surprised if you wake up to find the hillside view all shrouded in mist here. We suggest you settle in to a cosy spot and enjoy the morning with a cuppa in hand and your pet beside you. Make most of their spacious ground to play around with your doggie or even enjoy a game of badminton with your buddies.

    Price: INR 1.600 upwards {per night}

    Carpe Diem Stay

    Looking for a homely place where you can unwind with your pooch or kitty? Carpe Diem keeps it simple yet manages to be charming enough to lure you there. While Coorg’s tourist attractions aren’t too far, we would happily spend our day in the expansive garden, playing catch with the pup. With breaks in between to tuck into some homemade food, of course. The folks at Carpe Diem will also provide food for your pet, on request.

    Price: INR 3,000 upwards {per night}
