Ghosts.

You have to go at night. It has everything -- ghosts, ghosts with chains, prisoners, music, people in windows -- it covers the whole gamut. Nice house.

The legend of the White Witch, Annie Palmer,who allegedly murdered three white, European husbands, and romanced her Jamaican overseer is what hangs over this great house. Johnny Cash wrote one of the last songs of his life in her honor.

This is not a stop you should make if you are looking for history in Jamaica. The tour consisted of a well spun tale of murder, sex, and a sprinkle of Haitian voodoo which was very well done if that is all you are looking for. We were a bit disappointed in the little that was offered by way of... More

It was restored years ago with period furniture and is well kept. The tour lasted about 1 hour and then you could stay on the property to look... More

Our tour was a combo that started with the Luminous Lagoon and ended at Rose Hall. By far Rose Hall was the highlight of our excursion. We went on the last tour of the night so we thought we would get a less than enthusiastic guided tour. Boy were we wrong! Our guide was personable and full of so much... More

Not a working plantation just a tour of the house and grounds Great tour guide telling a gruesome history of the place. Worth the the time if you like historical homes
