Stay In A Sugarmill at Estate Belvedere
Nestled high in the hills above Cane Bay, Estate Belvedere offers a unique guest experience 250 years in the making. The Main House, a comfy three-bedroom/three-bathroom dream of a villa, was lovingly constructed around an old Danish sugar mill. The year inscribed in its beautiful arched mahogany doors: 1763. Any home, villa, or building that incorporates an ancient sugar mill carries quite a bit of romantic historical cachet with me, but the bigger reason I say the Main House was lovingly constructed is because it has the only sugar mill I’ve ever seen anywhere that’s actually stuccoed and painted in the fashion traditional of all Danish sugar mills in their heyday. A sundeck atop the sugar mill affords sweeping views extending all the way to Culebra, Vieques, and even mainland Puerto Rico
. Stately ruins of the old Estate Belvedere Plantation line the property’s lush and ultra-private four acres, which are also interspersed with trails that wind into the surrounding rainforest.
