We just returned from a 10-day Jamaica vacation and Lime Tree Farm was the highlight of our trip. Although the journey up the 5 mile “road” to Lime Tree Farm was a bit daunting, it certainly was well worth the effort! For the faint of heart, the hosts will make arrangements to pick you up down the hill. Lime Tree Farm is an eight acre working mountaintop coffee farm with unsurpassed spectacular views of the Blue Mountains in a peaceful and pastoral setting.
The hosts Charlie, Susie, & Roger warmly welcomed us and oriented us to some of the possible activities (various hikes, bird watching, botanical gardens visits, coffee factory tours, etc.) and offered to assist in any way possible, either by guiding hikes or providing transportation.
The food at Lime Tree was by far the best we had in Jamaica! All the meals which were custom prepared by Susie and Keisha were savory, extremely flavorful and “oh my God” delicious…and they were included with the room, along with a complimentary bottle wine with dinner)! But, the best past was that Charlie, Roger, the other house guests and sometimes Susie would all share the fabulous food family style around a large harvest table and warmly exchange stories about their fascinating lives and the Jamaican culture. Talk about embedding yourselves into a foreign culture!
Our cottage was extremely comfortable and well appointed. Each cottage has a front porch to enjoy a morning cup of coffee and absorb the views. Everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable night’s stay is provided.
In short, Lime Tree Farm is a precious gem that we cannot wait to experience again!!
