Whitfield Hall is a must do if you hike the peak but it is also an awesome place to get out of the Jamaica Rat Race while on the island. No hustling or hassling just peace and quiet. Talk about a cup of Jamaican Coffee, it doesn't get any better than Whitfield Hall. Rustic to say the least so if you're looking for the Ritz it ain't for you but then again if Blue Mountain Peak is your destination you don't have many choices. One of my favorite places in Jamaica.
P.S. The view from the Peak, priceless!!
