Evergreen County Reviews
Firstly, Thank you 'Evergreen County' for coming out with a different concept. This is my first sight to observe this kind of theme based county, though I had travelled different places prior. Had a pleasant stay with my buddies and rocked the trip. I felt so adventurous in plantation trail, getting knowledge of different plants and trees practically and walking with lanterns in dark nights with a scaring sounds of animals and visiting of scary house in mid of walk made us inquisitive and adventurous which left us on thinking regarding it till late night. I felt so adventurous during night drive hitting the speed of 90km at offroad condition. Had a homely food which tasted good. And many fun activities like camp fire, zip line ride and even more activities made us to enjoy. Stay in wooden houses was different experience to me as it's first time for me to be in such, those gave us a feeling of homely stay with their hospitality and caring to us. Thanks to our cab driver Ashok bhai who always made us happy during journey and made us thrilled by his driving and trust worthy person. Thank you "Evergreen County team " a nice team work. Love you people. Wish to be there again for long time stay.

Evergreen county made our trip most memorable : For kids or youngsters or families or even educational trip students they do with the same enthu and make us feel it. ADVENTUROUS It was a family trip with 65+ aged grannies who hardly thought they could visit the place just for a change in routine, 45+ aged aunts and uncles who wanted a rest out of mobiles, computers and tv. Also 30+ aged who wanted a relaxation from the daily routines of their kids and also 3-12 years kids who wanted best adventures. ECG, YES you MADE IT ALL TO HAPPEN. FELT WE WERE A FAMILY OF KIDS ONLY But the best part was all of us felt it was an adventurous trip. I never knew our family could run 10 year old kids so fast to win all competitions. ECG you brought down all our ages down to 3-12 years. HOSPITALITY The staff there are to be praised and respected truly. They are Soo true to their job. They are always happy and eager to service us. ECG you HAVE TO BE PROUD OF YOUR staff. LONG LIVE AVINASH and GANESH Avinash thank you so much for carrying this resort so beautifully. Ganesh our family can never ever forget night adventures with you. Boz of you it was so adventurous and funny too. You made that Zipline too adventurous. BE THE SAME FOOD and SERVICE ECG provide s all what you ask for to the best. They understand we are new to the environment and make us get a home-feel. The food was very good. With few restaurant foods, we thought a rasam rice in ECG could have been too good. RESORT and ROOMS: The last but beautiful part was the rooms. We stayed in Tiga Tiger cottage. We were 12 members. But had almost double the space required. The duplex type was the best idea and kids loved it. Thou they look little old at 1st sight the rooms carried us to a beautiful world out of this busy apartment styles in rushing cities. WORTH FOR THE PRICE. There are new rooms recently done with more beautiful looks, but this older one was perfect for an adventurous trip. SAFE, SAFE and CLEAN It was fully safe with no insects or mosquitoes or any uncomforts. We still wonder how you maintain it so safe. Great JOB. WILL VISIT AGAIN and RECOMMEND
Staying here is very different kind of experience with wooden houses, homemade food, fun activities, night walk ,.. I enjoyed the night walk, it was scary but now it is one of memorable moment ... Staying in the wooden cottage is great experience. This is very good for nature lovers ..
We are group of 5 people visited the resort few days back.. It was an amazing experience from starting to ending... The crew was so friendly and hospitality team was excellent.. Plantation walk was adventurous.. Special Coorg coffee which makes you to drink once more.. Camp fire activity makes us more energetic.. Totally it was a different experience.. Willing to visit the resort again.. A special thanks to Avinash, Kokila and entire crew especially our driver who made our trip most adventurous and a safe trip...
The destination of the hotel was nice. The hotel was conveniently located. The appearance of the hotel was nice. The booking and front office was good in the hotel. There was no delay in check in and checkout. I had booked this room by online. The allotted room was spacious with clean. The restaurant was available in the hotel. The complimentary breakfast was provided by the hotel. The parking facility was available at the hotel. I would recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers. I dont have any suggestion for this hotel.
Had a great time in evergreen county. It a best place to enjoy the nature with friends and family. Activities, rooms and food was awesome. The Jeep drive and adventure games was very good. And thank you so fr making our trip memorable specially Avinash and Ganesh.
I arrived at this exotic place with my family and experienced something beyond my expectation. The warm welcoming and caring attitude of everyone at Evergreen, made us all feel at home. The lantern walk, jeep ride coupled with the entertaining anecdotes by the team made it absolutely thrilling and left us all rolling with laughter and joy. The rooms are clean and exceptionally fun to stay at. The huts, tree houses and tents make it a dream come true place, sure to bring naughty giggles and games of the childhood alive. The food was excellent and offered much variety. They really make food with love and laughter! One of the best memory we made on this trip was our stay at Evergreen County. Thank you team!
It was great experience staying at Evergreen county, will plan to visit again .. Food was awesome and it was a pleasant drive close to nature. Enjoyed staying with my family. Staff was very good and co-operative and friendly. Met our old friend Bhajan, thanks to him for spending time with us and hosting us personally.

In one word - OUTSTANDING. We have been organizing team outing for more than two years now. Every time it's the same old stuff with slight variations. We badly wanted something different - and thank god came across this one. This is an amazing place in a beautiful location, brilliantly customised for team outings. Place/resort : Now, as they have already specified - this is not a typical resort. Don't expect any 4-star/5-star luxury. But I tell you, it's BETTER than the luxury you can get. They have a beautiful landscape and interesting bamboo house concept. We were around 21 and we go options of staying in bamboo cottages, tent house, tree houses. The rooms were neat, tidy, cosy. We had no problems and every single one of us got a nice, relaxed sleep amidst nature. Concept/Games/Adventure Sports: Everything has been arranged by a team of like minded youngsters who are very nice, polite and helpful. We had no problem in the booking, coordination. Best part all the team activities, sports are arranged by them which comes in the package (we opted for Package-5) so basically, you can go there care-free, no-prep and just enjoy. I personally liked the night-estate walk with lantern - reminded those olden days. Such a soothing and wonderful experience. Also, take the herbal bath they provide - it's a pleasant experience. Staff/arrangements: As I said - the staff were very nice and helpful. We had no problems at all throughout our stay. They were with us on call/in person as and when applicable throughout our journey. Food: Food was excellent - for the package you cannot expect too many items. But we were pleasantly surprised. Very good breakfast, good BBQ, great dinner (Loved the mango dish which was brilliant!) In short - if you are looking for a team outing - JUST GO FOR IT. This is the best place in best location with the best price. Total value for money.
My team members and I had been to Evergreen County Resort which was the best ever resort I have been. Our Team members had the best hospitality ever given by any resort. The Evergreen County crew was the most Amazing team I have ever met. I did not find any crew member who did not have a smile on face. We were greeted by Mr. Avinash who turns out to be amazing organizer, who helped us in every query we had and made sure we did not even have to frown a bit about anything The Crew was awesome team who never said or gave a negative feeling/atmosphere, all were very friendly as if were known to each other ever since. Especially Chiru, Sharin, Avinash. They are no longer just crew from evergreen county, but Cool buddies ïŠ, even after checking out of resort. Best Buddies. This is NOT a LUXURY Resort this is resort of Adventure and Fun. This is place for Nature Lovers. This is the place for people who want to have time away from Technology. Please don't expect WiFi. The Jeep ride with Mr. Avanish and Mr. Bhajjan was amazing, especially during Night Jeep Rides, I had so much of adrenaline fun with these two amazing Jeep drivers. The Plantation walk with no lights guides by Sharin was superb and thrilling. The fun activities hosted by Ganesh is super fun. The Food is Best Koorgi style home-made I ever had, simply Delicious, which was prepared by Shivani, Nagaraj, and other members which was headed by none other Mr. Bhajjan's mom. Mr. Bajjan's involvement and entire team made our journey worthwhile and full of enjoyment, something that all of us loved. Looking forward to meet you guys soon. Thank you Team County.
Hats off to the CEC Team... For coming up with such a unique holiday concept! The kids had lots of vacation time and I had managed to get a week off... So we were looking to drive down to a place where the kids could really enjoy their stay instead of being cooped up in some A/C room or in a swimming pool. After checking out several properties, friend's suggestions etc we hit upon CEC which on paper seemed to fit our requirements perfectly. We needed to see how it was on the ground. The pleasant experience began when we connected with Kokila for enquiries and the bookings. Kokila was very helpful and understanding. She was also candid about the weather (being last week of May) bit humid, some rain and set our expectation about the weather up front. When we reached the property, we were quite impressed by the set up and cumulative experience over 2 nights. Complete with the rural homestead cottage theme, the cheerful, enthusiastic team (Shivani, Ganesh, Devaiah), the multiple activities which Ganesh conducted which the family loved, the bon-fire, Night Plantation Trail, the adventure Jeep ride by the inimitable Bajan be and the family dancing by the bon-fire. The stay in the cottages was extremely comfortable and pleasant. Took me back to the days of my stay in mud brick/cane walls, cow-dung floor, thatched roof dwellings when I used to visit my grandpa in the village. It used to be very cool inside even in peak summer. So, similar was my experience here in the CEC cottages. Apparently lot of thought has gone into bringing the concept alive. The hospitality was great. Shivani who welcomed us on the first day, is such a genuine individual, we felt as he was welcoming us to a home and not a place which we have rented for a couple of days. In fact, Bajan Bopanna - the property owner was personally seen greeting and interacting with each and every guest over the 2-3 days we were there. Very down to earth but very passionate about his work, Bajan shared his vision for CEC and where he wanted to see the enterprise in the next 5 years... Lots of new ideas and innovations are just waiting to be introduced promising exciting times in future for all the guests. Bajan's mother is the full time custodian of the property otherwise and she runs the kitchen with her Coorgi special cuisine. We also took time off to do some sight seeing around Madikeri, Virajpet and Keisha Nagar... Bajan was kind enough to lend his driver - Devaiah for driving us around in our car. Devaiah was one wonderful driver who was sensitive to the varied passenger's needs be it food, water, discomfort due to giddiness etc. He carried the CEC signature ethos into our car as well. When the stay was over and it was time to leave.. The entire team incl Bajan, Shivani, Kokila etc made it a point to see us off as well as all the other guests individually. It was almost as if we were leaving a friend or relative's home and not some holiday home/resort. The family is extremely happy with the overall experience... And is keen to return at the earliest opportunity during the winters.
To all those who have a bucket list in mind, my sincere advice is to include Evergreen County in it. The place is as rustic and as close to nature you can get. Coming to the title of the review -Zulu is the Labrador at the county and the man is Mr Bhajan Bopanna, who owns the County and runs it - a perfect example of ''Live young live free''. He has built it from 5 years ago and believe me the commitment is visible. The accommodation provided is a variety of thatched huts, tents and log cottages in which we, a group of 4 boys stayed. A camp-fire every night and barbecue is something you will cherish. The food is excellent, literally its home-made cuisine. Food and accommodation done, let me tell you that there is no dearth of fun and group activities. We did enjoy some like plantation trail and a trek to the nearby hill and falls. Mr Bhajan arranged for fun activities including air firing and sports but I had to cut short my trip of 2 and half days by half a day, due to an emergency back home. All in all it's a memorable experience and would love to return as many times as possible. My sincere regards and best wishes to Bhajan, his bro Nixon and his team of boys- Shivani, Devaiah, Raju and I think its Ganesh. Sorry if I have missed out on any other guys who provided us an excellent stay. And yes the notice at the entry says " If looking for luxury-keep yourself out from here ". Pay attention to it because the county means it.
Stay with a local Coorgi family, learn how to pluck and process coffee while exploring pristine wilderness, this is what a weekend in
