Day 355 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – See the Royal Accommodations at DeMontevin Lodge

DeMontevin Lodge

Built in the parish of Portland in 1881, this lodge displays a mix of Victorian-style architecture, lots of gingerbread details, and decorative ironwork that was designed and manufactured in Scotland. The Honorable David Gideon built the house; he became Custos of Portland in 1823. It is now operated as a guest house, and among the many distinguished visitors who have stayed there was Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, Duchess of York, and ”The Queen Mother” in 1923. Queen Elizabeth II stayed here in 1954 and 1966. The room occupied by Queen Elizabeth II was named the “Queen’s Room” in 1953.
