Cane Bay mill description

Come to St. Croix and stay on this historic 80 acre property! This dramatic property is perfect for a unique getaway available no where else on St. Croix. North Star is a lovely and rare property with historic buildings and runs dating before the 1750's. There are two separate remodeled buildings with the old thick walls, colonial-era ruins, a large beautiful pool, and 80 acres. It is quiet and peaceful - the perfect place to relax while gazing at the incredible views of the Caribbean Sea and coastline. North Star is located very near the popular beach, Cane Bay, where there is swimming, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, and restaurants.

The old sugar mill has been remodeled for comfort. There is a bedroom and bathroom upstairs, with a sweet balcony where you can sit and sip a cool drink. The view is fantastic! Downstairs is a full kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom, and a TV room with a twin hide-a-bed. There is a large patio space for lounging. The numerous windows and sliding glass doors bring the outside in.

The cottage is a one bedroom, one bathroom building with a kitchen - great room. There is a nice covered patio off the kitchen and bedroom where you can enjoy a quiet morning cup of coffee listening to the local birds.

The large pool is on an upper level of ground, just up some steps. It's a great place to swim, sun, or lounge. The view of the ocean and coastline are expansive - from Cane Bay to Hamm's Bluff!

The historic colonial-era ruins were where the crushed sugar cane juice was boiled down into molasses. Although the Danish Government purchased the island of St. Croix from the French in 1733, and began to settle it in 1734, the parcels of land that were to become North Star existed only in the plans of the Danish West India and Guinea Company, and do not appear to have been sold by the company before 1753. The plantation was owned and developed by many people over the years. A short history of the property and an artist's rendering are in each of the buildings.

                      The island has many historic sites, mostly from 1700's Danish plantation days. The two cities and forts are from that time period. The old sugar mills are all over the island. We have the USVI's only casino. There are also many cultural events, annual agricultural fair, Mango Melee at the Botanical Garden, and many holiday related events. Whim Plantation hosts art fairs and candlelight concerts. The Christmas Carnival lasts two weeks, with music nightly, but what's really amazing are the two parades the first Friday and Saturday of January! We even have a miniature golf course! St. Croix is a place where you can be busy all day, or just sit on a beach.

                      About: Christie and Chris Powers of Calabash Real Estate are the Property Managers of this wonderful historic property property.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Mill:
                      North Star comprises two historic buildings, ruins, large pool, and 80 acres. The views are amazing, and the feeling is of tranquility. It is a perfect place to get away from it all, relax, explore, hike, and yet, it is very close to popular Cane Bay. There really is no place like North Star on St. Croix!
