Fernhill Cottage, was originally built as a holiday home for the owners, Dr George Paul and his wife Dr. Bini George. The house was inspired by the model of old English cottages of Yercaud built in the early 20th century. The house is built out of rough hewn granite stones furnished with a modern kitchen and toilets. The house has a wooden loft accessed by a spiral staircase and can be used as a bedroom/ recreational area.
“Fernhill cottage - George's place has amazing views and purely functional from the time we checked in. We had a great time having extended conversations relaxing in the patio and my toddler was excited about the spiral staircase and mezzanine floor setup. Definitely a great choice for Yercaud stay - Thanks!”
The homestay is set in the midst of a coffee plantation. Quiet and serene, the setting is just right for a weekend getaway.
“Shalom gardens is a lovely peaceful space. If you're looking for a private weekend getaway then this is your place. Situated literally in the middle of a coffee and pepper plantation, the rooms open out into a large open garden overlooking the plantation. It's approximately half an hour away from Yercaud lake by car, but the drive is very scenic. Once at the place, Manigandhan the caretaker takes very good care of his guests. Since he lives on the same property, he is easily reachable. He is more than willing to rustle up a nice South Indian meal on request. The rasam he made for us was to die for! The dining area and the garden are nice and spacious with enough place to play football, cricket, frisbee etc. The rooms are elegantly designed with very homely interiors. A special mention for the enormous and modern bathrooms. They were probably the highlight of the entire room. Warm water too was available round the clock. The only difficulty we had here was not having network at any point during the entire stay at Shalom. The property has a wifi network but with power cuts, we weren't able to make much use of that either. Overall a very good stay and a great property!”
The Jubilee bungalow and houses are built in the middle of a sprawling estate property. This unique property offers the opportunity to live as the early coffee farmers lived but with modern amenities. Stay in old stone houses fitted with modern bathrooms and beds. Guests can take a walk through the coffee estate, go on treks or sit around a bonfire at night singing songs.
“What a great place in the middle of the mountains! It's a great place to spend a weekend with proper arrangements made for entertainment of the guests. Shiv was a great host. 100/100 will visit soon again”
