The Nubie is one of four private rooms in the family home. it was a study room full of books and serious brain work, however, it was hardly used for working and I decided to convert it to a medium size bedroom to accommodate four at maximum in two bunk beds. The bathroom is on the lower level. It is a cute little room with a tremendous view. It is called 'Nubie' because its the newest room in the house.

The space

Cedar Ridge Lodge Inn is a home hostel, it is located approximately 10 / 15 minutes from the centre of the town and is serviced by ROUTE (shared taxi). It is off the beaten track, a little away from the town, but easily accessible. It is close to a large shopping plaza with all services. It is an art space, reading space, ‘lying-in-a-hammock chillin space. It is family run and is a space in which to be comfortable, safe and cared for. We are very experienced and knowledgeable as we all work in tourism and will ensure that all questions are answered honestly, in order to guide & support our travelers moving around the island.

Guest access

Travelers are at home on the balcony, under a tree, in the garden; in fact anywhere a space can be captured and personalized to meet the mood and moment. Guests are not encouraged to bring other guests into the space, because it is shared and everyone leaves there stuff around. It is safer and the system works for us to have the privacy and interactions positive for the home.
Guests are allowed access by the front door, someone is always on hand to let them in or an arrangement made for key collection. The house is fully alarmed and monitored by the local security company.

Interaction with guests

Cedar Ridge Lodge Inn is a ‘home’ hostel. It is located approximately 10 / 15 minutes from the centre of the town, the beaches, shopping and even the airport if the traffic is not too bad. The general area is serviced by a ROUTE (shared) taxi system. Cedar Ridge is the name of the road on Bogue Hill, it is off the beaten track, a little away from the town, but easily accessible.
It is close to a large shopping plaza with all services. It is an art space, a reading space, a ‘lying-in-a-hammock chillin space, most of all it’s a no-stress space.
It is family run and is a space, in which to be comfortable, safe and cared for. Our Housekeeper Ms. Madge is experienced in what she does and Lisa is knowledgeable about things to do and places to go, it is important to ask for whatever is needed. Both persons support me in guiding travelers and providing answers with honesty, clarity, accuracy and integrity for travelers moving around in this new environment.

Other things to note

We recommend that travelers move around with a cell phone, preferably bringing an old unlocked one so that they can purchase a local SIM card to make calls for onward bookings or otherwise. We have wifi in the house so communication is easy.
We provide the following listing for travelers to bring:
•own toiletries
•favorite dried cereals
•nuts and grains
•cheese if you love it
•mosquito repellent, sun block, any medication you use or may need
•and a fold up raincoat.
These things can be expensive here and almost all our guests engage with them.
Cedar Ridge is also a part of a community of Rastafari and we often make donations to their development: Guests often ask what to bring for donations: the response is "art and craft making stuff" we also say: first-aid stuff bandages, scissors, gloves etc. or agricultural tools or organic seeds, and we also say...bring whatever you feel would be good to donate to community development - pencils, paper, crayons etc.

Cedar Ridge is more than just a hostel and Arlene is more than just a host. It's a great place to meet travelers and Jamaicans and the accommodations are so friendly and homey, you might just forget to leave. Arlene is one of those magical people in the world that seems to be able to manage just about everything with complete grace and ease. Really smart and interesting lady with a big heart.

Cedar Ridge is a family home converted into a hostel, (everyone grown up and moved away so now we have space!). The house nevertheless, if always full of young people passing through and sharing their lives, experiences and perspectives with guests - its usually quiet, but never a dull moment.
My son started the hostel as a way to assist with expenses for the house. We have a lot of fun with guests as we have lots of information about touring the island, lots of networks to connect folks to and there are almost always events to recommend. You host, Arlene is Jamaican with lots of international experiences, the community is a quiet cul de sac with only a few houses on a hillside not far out of town. The culture is Rastafari, Vegan and artsy, we look forward to sharing.
We are bringing on stream cottages at the Rastafari Indigenous Village, they are not up officially as yet but we are managing three of them for a trial period. So if you are specifically interested in natural, outdoorsey, rustic and completely ITAL. Please ask
