Horizons and Cottages, Bermuda
Category: $$ Location: Paget Parish
One of Bermuda's oldest and charming plantation estates, Horizons and Cottages was built some three centuries ago. It provides one of the finest views of ocean and countryside on the island. It was at one time the home of the Middleton family, and over the years the land surrounding it was given to such varied activities as farming, quarrying, the growing of tobacco, potatoes, the famous Bermuda onion, and latterly, the Bermuda Easter lilies.
Horizons Main House is traditional Bermudian in architecture, with its whitewashed keystone corners, knee-high cedar fireplaces and tray ceilings designed for coolness and airiness. The late Alfred Blackburn Smith acquired the property, restored the Main House and opened it as a cottage colony in 1922. Horizons is now operating as a traditional Bed and Breakfast.

Visitors' Reviews and Comments
I was wondering why the place has been not kept up for so long?? I'm a Bermudian USPTA certified(insured) tennis professional and was wondering if I could do a tennis program there for you. I've had to take a few lessons there with approval from Coral Beach. Seems to me that some tennis programming is exactly what the place could
use. Thanks! Dean

Raj, Horizons...3 courts wasting away, I rarely see anyone on them! In this economy, Horizon's could try a free clinic night for the quests there in exchange for rent consideration. If not a fee could be paid if guests wanted to come to a clinic night. It could be deemed as an amenity. It may spark some activity. It's a decent location for me and programming like this is done all the time in Atlanta. It's just a thought. Thanks Raj.
