A BRIEF HISTORY
This estate has a rich heritage that dates back to Colonial English times. Originally belonging to Colonel William Tippetts and his wife, Mrs. Winifred Tippetts, Magnolia has been preserved as a working coffee plantation for a century.
The original plantation house, a perfect example of the harmonious blend of Colonial and Coorgi architecture, is still standing, and currently houses Magnolia’s restaurant, Peppervine. Other precious heritage buildings include the reception, formerly the warehouse, and the first set of guest cottages, which used to be the labor quarters.
THE NAME MAGNOLIA
A fragrant white blossom perched on a tall tree, the blooming magnolia flower is the perfect symbol for the open, welcoming, peaceful getaway that the estate offers guests. It is also a favorite flower of the owners.
Magnolia Resorts are nestled in a lush, 100-acre coffee plantation. The ideal place for a tranquil, socially distanced holiday, Magnolia offers you infinite space to explore. Recommended hideaways around the estate are the two natural lake features. Follow the signs to find your way!
Along the trails, you might spot any of several species of exotic birds, including kingfishers, drongos, and even hornbills. Keep an eye out also for cascading blooms of dew-tipped orchids, spilling from the branches of tall, moss-covered trees.
