The all wooden buildings, perched on the hillside in the Blue Mountains 3500 ft above sea level with the river below, is known as Mount Edge Guest House. We are featured in Rough Guides and Lonely Planet travel guides to name a few. We are located about 30 minutes from the Reggae capital of the world, Kingston.

The main building has two private rooms with shared bathroom, spacious living and dining room. There are also three cottages all with double beds and own bathrooms and another building with bunk beds for four. Both have an adjoining bathroom and hot and cold water with breathtaking views.

There is a small roadside bar, a trail to the river and a hot tub in the garden which all allow for some on-property recreation. We have mountain bikes for the more adventurous. A day trip can take you to the small white sand Cay 60 minutes away with a 15 minute boat ride, not to be missed.

Prices are per person per night.
