Ashton Great House & Hotel (US$75), located just outside Black River along Central Road in Luana, has 22 rooms with hot water and air-conditioning. Meals are cooked to order for guests. The only negative is the dated linoleum floors in baths. Otherwise there are wood floors throughout, gorgeous views, and a sizable pool near a spacious covered area used for parties and functions. The house was built in the late 1600s by a sea captain, Earle from England, who married a Jamaican woman and raised hogs and cattle.
