We had our trip to Rose Hall on Wednesday, December 11, 2013. We scheduled this excursion through Carnival and our only choice was to go during the day. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. As you walk up the staircase to the front door, turn and look out to the blue carribbean ocean over flowered brilliant shrubs of fuschia. The blue sky and ocean meet and you feel the trade- winds blow and image yourself back to the 18th century. The plantation home has been restored. The dining room, chandeliers and the staircase are exquisite. For this beautiful home to have so much dark history attached to it, the tradewinds seem to be a breath of fresh air. Our tour guide was sweet and told a little of the history that only made us want to research more of the past of this sugar plantation and its former owner, Annie Palmer. The secret staircase and the coral tiled floor on the bottom floor were intriguing. The grounds are well kept. A Dogwood Tree so massive two men could not wrap their arms around it, and the Copper Bark Tree where the bark shears off in paper thin sheets, amazing!! Rum punch, at the end of the tour, was sooo good. We would book this again.
