Property Description

CedarRidge Lodging is an ideal family home atmosphere for travellers seeking safe, informed, cultural immersion.

Ideal for writers and wellness practitioners - great outdoor and indoor spaces for yoga, massage and other holistic healing, quiet contemplation, reviving, recouping and recharging. Clean comfortable, caring – woman run, welcoming single female travellers or families.
Nestled on a steep, hillside-shoulder with an expansive view of the Caribbean sea and the fertile greens of the interior, Cedar Ridge Lodge-Inn, is a must stop for travellers.
The Lodge is an architecturally designed, five bedroom, open-plan, split-level home, with an internal garden. It is colourful, artistic, airy, and clean. Rooms/beds are functional and welcoming. The owner, a woman lives on property. A housekeeper also lives on property. All staff at CR are knowledgeable and experienced at advising new visitors about travel around the island and things to do. They value and nurture a welcoming, genuine, and safe environment.

CR is about fifteen minutes from most amenities and services in the City - beaches, airport, shopping, historic sites, however, to be fair - sometimes there is traffic.

This location offers the visitor choices to either stay in to read or meditate or to have the information to move around the town/island/the Caribbean. The owners are also attuned to opportunities for volunteer work or community groups who would welcome visitors into their spaces.

Staying at CR is more than just a place to stay, its a Jamaican experience in itself.

    What a wonderful place to stay. Super cozy, filled with plants, and up in the mountains. We fed kittens, chilled all over the house, and enjoyed breakfast with a delightful view. Arlene was very helpful, and she made us feel like family!

    I was only at Cedar Ridge for one night, but it was a lovely stay. It was away from the touristy side of Montego Bay which was perfect for me. It was close enough to the city center, but secluded enough to feel special. I came to Jamaica with loose plans of what I wanted to do, but Arlene helped me solidify those plans and ensured that I had a good time. She even set me up with a tour guide for a morning in the city center. I highly recommend staying here!

    I can't imagine a better place to stay to explore Montego Bay! Arlene is a superb host and the place is extremely welcoming. The view is impossible to beat. I spent every evening in the balcony enjoying live reggae and the gorgeous sunset. Access to the city/beaches is a short route taxi ride and it only costs you $2. Arlene is very knowledgeable about everything you will possibly need. A wonderful place with a character. Perfect for solo travelers. Especially safe for female travelers!

    Arlene is an amazing host. From the welcome email to the infinite knowledge about Jamaica. She will help you find good deals on day trips and has amazing suggestions on what to do. If you want to know anything, ask her. I could not ever fully put into words how great she is. I called her my Jamaican hostel mom

    Arlene was an amazing host, she is very welcoming and gave us a lot of tips and advices for our trip. She is located in the hills a little bit outside of downtown but it was fairly easy for us to find a way to get there back and forth from the main restaurants and attractions. The view from the house was amazing. The facilities are minimalistic but we had everything we need.

    Pretty nice hostel, no one else was staying there when I went so it was very quiet. Transportation is relatively easy from here, you can grab a cheap route taxi from the bottom of the hill (you just have to walk maybe 5-10 min). The owner was very kind and accommodating. Keep in mind, there's no food really close by so be prepared for that.
