We had one day off during a recent 'work vacation' in Kingston and hoped to see something beyond the downtown sights. I found a link on the web for bike tours from Mount Edge and called up at the last minute not really expecting much. But the Fox family made everything happen - with virtually no effort on our part....

I just got back from a fabulous stay at Mount Edge. Not sure where to begin and haven't come to terms with the fact I have left :/. One day is NOT enough. Went with some friends to get out of Kingston for a day and it was just what we needed. First off, Robyn is delightful ( owners daughter)...

Mount Edge is one of the best guest houses I've stayed in the world. The owner's daughter offered to pick up my friend and me from Kingston for an affordable amount. The guest house itself has a beautiful view. The chef cooked delectable meals from ingredients from the nearby organic garden. Oh, and the view was spectacular!

It's 5am and I'm sat on the veranda with Yam, Robin's new puppy. The only sound is the river below and the jungle all around. If you're after action then move on, if you're searching for culture, laid back people & vibes and some of the best views in all Jamaica then you have arrived! Rooms are shabby certainly but...

Mount Edge is a collection of wooden cottages hooked on the side of the hill, up in the blue mountains 40mn from Papine, Kingston. The view is breathtaking. They are very welcoming and nice people, and the food is so good. A very special place that shouldn't be missed !

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Mount Edge with one exception. The bathroom in my little cabin was not what I consider acceptable. The shower is also the bathroom floor and the sink was barely acceptable. I didn't want to walk in the bathroom until the floor dried from the shower. Small renovation would make that bathroom much more tourist...

I don't think Mount Edge is especially addressed to backpackers, but they arranged something for me, a solo female traveler in Jamaica during the off-season, for a very good price. The place is stunning, the panorama breathtaking, the food very tasty (some of the best I had in 3 weeks), the room was super clean, and the semi outdoor bathroom...

Took a long weekend and highly recommend it to all who want to escape the city. Incredible experience staying on the side of a mountain. The food is all local organic food, cooked up by masterful chefs. Pleasant and knowledgeable staff, AND less expensive than other nearby hotels.

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed this place a lot. When we arrived there was some confusion about our reservation (although we had paid weeks ago and we had the reservation papers with us) but we we're settled in another room and after moving a extra bed in the room all was well, the balcony of rock room...

Staying here was definitely a lot different than anywhere I've ever stayed. It is so peaceful and quite and the views are breathtaking. I would definitely reccomend here to anyone who just wants to get away, relax and clear their mind. Also EITS Cafe is right there and the food is amazing. You can't go wrong with choosing Mount Edge
