Middleground Mini ResortBasic but comfortable accommodations high up in the mountains of western Jamaica
High up in the Nassau Mountains
Middleground Mini Resort is in Accompong, a small farming community high up in the Nassau Mountains of western Jamaica, about 2 hours from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. Located between two mountain ridges (hence the name) Middleground boasts spectacular views of the lush mountains and valleys of Jamaica’s Cockpit Country – the island’s largest remaining contiguous rain forest.
In Maroon country
Accompong is a separate, sovereign state within Jamaica governed by its own chief. Its residents are friendly, warm, welcoming, and eager to share their hospitality as well as the peculiar, courageous, and still vibrant history of their ancestor Maroons – communities of runaway slaves who negotiated their independence from the British. A nearby cultural center traces the history of their freedom from British control in 1738 and highlights cultural traditions that remain alive to this day.
A very welcoming community
Accompong is a simple farming community but one that is very aware of its culture and heritage. Middleground’s owner, Clive Dunn’s hospitality goes beyond providing comfortable accommodations and good service; a maroon descendant himself, he will regale you with stories about his childhood and the history of Accompong.
Dining at Middleground Mini Resort
A continental breakfast is included in all bookings; other meals are available for guests who prefer to dine in. There is a kitchen as well as green grocers and mini marts throughout the village for guests who’d like to prepare their own meals but there are several restaurants and cook shops in close vicinity.
Accompong is in ganja country
Weed is widely grown and easily available from scores of small farmers. And visitors are free to buy, smoke and carry any amount at anytime anywhere because. Accompong is a sovereign state and not subject to the laws of Jamaica. However, Middleground strictly prohibits smoking in the rooms.
