Description of Good Hope Plantation :

18th Century country house on 2,000-acre plantation high in the lush landscape of Cockpit Country 10 air-conditioned bedrooms privately located in 3 buildings ... plus 3 more bedrooms nearby stables -milrs of rivate riding and hiking trails through untouched forests hard surface tennis court lighted for night play (racquets and balls provided, lessons available) beautiful river for swimming, tubing, picnicking hite sand beach, beach bar and more wonderful swimming 19 minutes downhill bnfire nights at the beach every week (good food and drink ... magical evenings) favorite location for family reunions ... wonderful for children ... heavenly for yoga retreats ... wonderful for weddings Sitting high in the lush landscape of Cockpit Country stands an Eighteenth Century Great House named Good Hope. On 2,000 acres 600 above sea level, Good Hope is framed by dramatic blue-gray mountains and renowned for its excellent food, outdoor activities and country trails. Its grounds are fertile with papaya, oranges, ackee, breadfruit, bananas and coconuts as well as fields of flowers and grasses where cows and horses graze. The country road up from Falmouth weaves by 200-year-old stone fences past fields and orchards, cattle and horses ... gently leading back in time to a quiet era of a more peaceful, healthy and idyllic lifestyle. This magical perch commands sweeping views of the Queen of Spain Valley, endless acres of plantation land and the refreshing Martha Brae River that wanders through thick bamboo forests below. The entire panorama takes in 20,000 acres of softly rolling mountains whose velvet texture changes with the light hour by hour. While extraordinarily private, this remarkable site is only a 45-minute drive east of the Montego Bay airport and 19 minutes from the beach. Built in 1755 in classic Georgian style, the Great House was owned by the Tharpe and Tenison families in past centuries. Its current owners have lovingly updated the buildings while retaining many original features, including the first hot water bath in the Caribbean made in late 1700s and 14 tall Palladian windows trimmed with plantation shutters. The floors creak, the tall windows squeak, the feeling is a magical trip back in time. Yet, todays guests enjoy modern comforts and gracious service in this unique home atop a working plantation. Rooms are appointed with antiques. Polished rare wood floors are throughout. Guests may enjoy tennis, hiking through the luxuriant unspoiled grounds, and horseback riding (100 miles of trails, different trail rides possible each day from mountaintop to cool riverbed through untouched bush country). Good Hope has hosted countless ambassadorial parties and fashion shoots (Vogue, Guess, Mademoiselle, Travel & Leisure, Elle) ... and has been beloved as a perfect setting for weddings and family reunions.

Rental Notes:

Sunrises and sunsets from this remarkable vantage point are beautiful beyond description. It would be remiss not to mention the sounds of Good Hope. To stand still for several moments invites the sounds of horses neighing across the valley, the braying of a distant donkey, perhaps the bawling of a calving cow, the chirping of birds and merely the wind. Stopping quietly to listen is part of the magic of Good Hope. Here is a tranquil, spiritually uplifting retreat. Food at Good Hope is extraordinary. Chefs Philip, Shernette and Jackie rank with the best. Favorites are grilled tenderloin, curried shrimp and blackened snapper as well as homemade hors doeuvres, soups and desserts. Mealtime at Good Hope will be one of your fondest memories.
