Description from manager

Craigston Great House is the last Historic Plantation Great House property on Carriacou, dating back over 230 years. It sits on a commanding, breezy, site with great ocean and nearby island views. There are over 10 acres of landscaped grounds attached. The property has been in the Kent family for almost 90 years and It's history goes back to Scottish ownership in the 18th century, when the plantation produced mostly cotton.

The house has recently been fully renovated in 2013 with added sundeck, outdoor whirlpool Jacuzzi , barbecue, and outdoor pantry and bar. An enclosed outdoor shower for sand removal after sea bathing is provided.

The house comprises 4 large screened en suite air-conditioned bedrooms, central great room/living room, north and south facing verandahs, verandah dining for 8, large fully equipped kitchen, library and TV room. Stereo with docking port and WiFi are also supplied. A local cell phone with $ 20 EC credit is supplied for your use.

Front and center as one drives up to the house is a 50 thousand gallon water tank dating back to 1785, which collects rainwater for household use, and has very thick walls and an arched roof. There is a walled courtyard with flagstone paved floor which used to be a cotton store, and the remains of an old fort with an intact powder store building still existing--- as do a couple of cannons and old memorial headstones of ancient British soldiers.

There is a large enclosed kitchen garden and plant nursery providing herbs and vegetables in season for the kitchen and flowers for the house. There are a housekeeper/cook and 2 gardeners who have been with the property for many years and who normally work 7 hours a day Monday to Friday. Faithlyn our housekeeper works every weekday excluding public holidays, and is available on weekends by special arrangements. She is an excellent cook and will help you enjoy the local specialties.

Included in your stay is a welcome drink or two, and a home cooked Caribbean meal your first night at Craigston Great House.

Please Note - Two small dogs are located at the property, housed and fed outside and are trained to not enter the house and cottage. The dogs cause no disturbance to guests, who usually adopt them for the duration of their stay.
