We had an amazing time staying at Mary's Hill Lodge, a perfect holiday.
The Lodge itself is beautiful, the perfect holiday spot. It's absolutely huge and has a really nice pool. We went as a couple but it would be great for a group too.
Tobago itself is absolutely stunning and we had hardly any rain, visiting at the beginning of October. The beaches are all fit for a postcard and there's hardly anyone on them - a far cry of looking for 6 inches square to put your towel down in the Med!
We did lots of little trips too and Charlotteville is definitely worth the drive. We had a lovely meal and a chat with the owner of Sharon and Pheb's restaurant.
There are loads of amazing beaches really nearby to the Lodge though so there's no need to venture far!
We'd definitely recommend it and we'll definitely back to Tobago and most certainly Mary's Hill Lodge.

All fears of staying in a house that was not beachfront and thereby not get the "Tobago experience" was very quickly dismissed. The view and sounds of the hills coupled with the excellent private pool and the general feel good ambience of the house itself made it a wonderful stay.
Prompt and helpful service by the caretaker and her description of her day chilling by the beach made us glad that we choose not only Tobago but this charming wooden house as well.
After a hard day of snorkeling there will be no better memories than going back "home", getting the grill out and spending hours in the pool, watching the stars and because we had only a short stay, talking about how we were going to miss this heavenly retreat when we get back to reality.
Some more hammocks and lounge chairs are the only recommendations as we wanted for nothing while we were there and were pleasantly surprised at the amount of stuff that was provided.
All in all I hope I have the joy of staying at Mary hill lodge again.

LOOK NO FURTHER! THIS IS IT!
Friend, having decided on Tobago for your next vacation I need not convince you to experience the warmth and excitement of an island that has been blessed by nature.
HOWEVER, accept my advice when I tell you to look no further for accommodation - MHL is it!
For a few days in September my family and I left our cares at home in the sister-isle of Trinidad to vacation yet again in Tobago.
As frequent visitors to that paradise of an island (no sea, sun and sand for us this time!) we only desired a private, simple yet comfortable place to stay...
Instead we got a wonderful holiday respite at Mary's Hill Lodge!
My dear holiday seeker, Mary's Hill Lodge gives you value for your money in the form of secure spacious grounds, a private pool, ideal location atop a hill, and well-crafted and designed living space. You sense the care and love that went into its construction, you really do.
Laura, Curtis , Louise... Thank you. We really felt at home in your lodge and were saddened to leave. Already plans are in the making for a longer stay in the very near future!

"Very relaxing, fun and adventurous time"
We knew from the start service would've been great as we receive a call from Louise (House Manager) before our arrival to confirm all was well. This this turned out great because we misplaced the contact info.
Louise was very pleasant and offered to make herself available to our needs if required. This was not necessary as the house catered to all our needs.
The kitchen was equipped with a new microwave and BBQ grill, all pots, pans and utensils one may need. The stove and refrigerator though well used still works very good and this was great.
We also liked the open air design of the lodge, did not miss airconditioning at all, the secured walk around verandah, the pool was fantastic, kids did not miss having no tv but you got wi fi, the many books available, particularly, the one on various birds in Trinidad and Tobago that helped us identified some of the many we saw at the lodge (it was fun learning for the kids who took joy in the Cocrico and the sounds they made).
Being in the hills you really appreciate the newness of each day and being one with nature either almost, touching the the clouds when it rained or the sun when it shone but still not far away from the buzz Scarborough (less than 10 mins drive) loved it.
However, we didn't like that rough road up the hill to the house, a good thing it was just about 1min drive and having kids a security gate should be place at the top of stairs inside the house, Louise said it was mentioned and will be looked at.
Thank you for creating such beauty in an already beautiful place, we definitely enjoyed our stay hardly left the lodge and will return again.
