A brand new upscale guest house in Bodden Town has opened.
The Retreat at Lookout Farm was formally opened on Friday 23 November with a ceremony for around 30 family, friends and local officials, said a press release.
The eight-room guest house represents the realisation of a vision by Caymanian owner/operator Harvey Stephenson to offer a unique and intimate Caymanian experience to visitors in the eastern districts.
During the ceremony, each room was blessed by Father Devon Nash and brief remarks were given by the Minister of Tourism, Charles Clifford, and Hugh Stephenson, Harvey Stephenson’s son. Also present was the third elected member for Bodden Town, Mr. Osbourne Bodden. Minister Anthony Eden was unable to attend the opening due to an unplanned meeting.
Minister Clifford commented that the property is a perfect example of what the Government hopes to achieve with the Go East initiative. ‘Lookout Farm is a scale appropriate property run by a Caymanian family who can share a little bit of our heritage and culture with each and every visitor who stays at the property.’
The property is set in five acres of open plantation filled with indigenous landscaping. Guests will have full access to the main house and surrounding farm.
