We have stayed at Cinnamon Bay Campground for many years, but due to the hurricanes needed an alternative. Liz and Russ's Cottage was absolutely perfect for us. We love the Coral Bay side of the island, and Salt Pond, Ram's Head and the Lameshur beaches are all close to this cottage. The cottage itself is clean, bright and has a beautiful breeze most of the time. We found everything we needed, as well as books to read and music to listen to. There is a great view of the surrounding national park, and it is a very quiet setting. Despite our flight delay and late arrival, Russ was out on the road when we arrived to get us settled in the cottage. They were great hosts, and only wish we could have stayed longer!
Perfect Tropical Getaway!
We had the perfect weekend getaway at the cottage! We loved everything about our stay here. The cottage provided the ultimate tropical feel and we felt super cozy tucked in the hillside. Also, couldn't have asked for better, more friendly/helpful hosts. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back!
Lameshur Studio Paradise
The studio was a fantastic place to stay for the week. With sweeping valley views, I couldn't wait for sunrise each morning! Super clean and comfortably cool from the breezes... Quiet and away from it all, yet easy to get to and close to Salt Pond Bay... The owners, Liz and Russ are very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend the studio for those who love the nature of the island and appreciate a quiet, cozy and comfortable place to call their base camp while on St. John.... I look forward to going back!
We were looking for a Caribbean experience that was authentic, and we found it! We would go to sleep at night looking out at the hills and valley, and then have coffee on the deck next morning, watching the hummingbirds. It was peaceful and beautiful, and we can't wait to come back next year.
Charming & Lovely
We had a fantastic stay in Saint John. The cottage was cozy and quiet, just what we wanted. I'm glad we were on the quieter side of the island, even if that meant we did a lot more driving than expected, to explore the northern beaches. I loved the amount of outdoor space. We really looked forward to getting back to the cottage after long days of sun and exploring. Every single restaurant and activity recommended in the welcome note was fantastic. We appreciated having that insight.
The bed felt a bit small for the two of us, but we didn't mind. There are definitely mosquitoes, but not sure that can be avoided in Coral Bay.
Definitely recommended if you are looking for a cosy place to call home while in Saint John!!
Naturally Peaceful at Lameshur Cottages
Our stay for 9 nights at Lameshur Studio Cottage was absolutely stunning! The awakening each morning to a gorgeous mountain view while listening to all of nature's sounds was very peaceful. The cool cross breezes made it perfectly comfortable sleeping conditions. This cute & cuddly studio offers complete privacy on a side deck with awesome relaxing views and private dining area to enjoy grilled dinners, read, relax and take an open air siesta! The caretakers/owners of this property are always attending to the beauty of the cottages and grounds and ensure that your stay is enjoyed! Thank you Russ & Liz for another terrific vacation in paradise at Lameshur Cottages. We will return again as we have in the past. It is always difficult to choose between the cottages, both are amazing and affordable!
We are 'last house on left' literally and popular spot for hikers and those who wish to go to beaches and coves you can only get to by boat .
