The December opening of Belle Mont farm sets a new bar for organic dining in the islands. The hotel, part of the new Kittitian Hill Community, has one-bedroom guesthouses and four-bedroom farmhouses spread out over 400 acres of working farmland. Pick me signs signal when the fruit is ripe to be plucked by guests. Original crops have been preserved as natural obstacles on the “edible” 18- hole golf course. The heart of Kittitian Hill, an area called the Village, will offer visitors a chance to mingle with locals at food stalls, restaurants, and a weekly farmers’ market when it debuts next year. Guesthouses from $800; farmhouses from $7,500.
