O&G GuesthouseA warm and friendly guesthouse at the southern end of Jamaica’s Cockpit Country
In Maroon country
You’ll find O&G Guesthouse on a mountaintop in the Maroon Sovereign State of Accompong – a small, friendly and very safe village on the southern end of Jamaica’s Cockpit Country (the island’s largest remaining contiguous rainforest) about 90 minutes from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. The Accompong community is warm and welcoming with residents that are eager to share their hospitality as well as the peculiar, courageous and still vibrant history of their ancestor Maroons – communities of runaway slaves who fought and won their independence from the British in the 18th century. A nearby Cultural Center traces the history of freedom from British control in 1738 and highlights cultural traditions that remain alive to this day.
Gorgeous views wherever you look
The guesthouse is topped off with a bar, tearoom, and large veranda to relax while taking in panoramic 360 scenic views of the mountains, sunrise, sunset, and stars galore. O& G Guesthouse is laso a perfect base from which to explore trails, rivers, and medicinal plants that nourish the Maroon way of life, honoring its history and values. African drumming, dancing and reggae music fill the hills with joy. Appleton Rum Estate and YS Falls are a short drive away.
Lots of small ganja farmers
Accompong is in the middle of ganja country. Weed is easily available from scores of small farmers and you can buy, smoke and carry ganja anytime anywhere. This village is a sovereign state and not subject to the laws of Jamaica!
