At 800 feet above sea level, The Hermitage slumbers on several acres of stone terraces. Its pastel guest cottages are scattered among fruit trees fringed with tropical flowers swaying quietly to the sounds of songbirds and doves in the daytime and a chorus of tiny bellfrogs and crickets in the soft evenings.
The great house of The Hermitage offers serene hospitality and peacefulness with a sense of calm that comes from years over 350 years of history. Each room is uniquely decorated with antiques. The buildings are scattered throughout the garden giving one the feeling of being in a special little village, almost lost in time and tucked on the side of the mountain.
The beautiful, uncrowded beaches of Nevis are less than 15 minutes drive away with all the heat and sun one expects of this perfect Caribbean island. But, in the afternoon and evenings it is blissful to enjoy the cool highland breezes in your cottage where you will never think of needing air conditioning.
