Set in a building built in 1803 as the barracks for the personal guard of the Danish colonial governor, this bright and cheery bed and breakfast is located in the oldest part of town. Surrounded by beautiful historic buildings and featuring a gorgeous view of the St. Thomas Harbor, it features a casual atmosphere that provides guests with a relaxing stay and a great home base for exploring the island.
