Overview

St. Croix Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

One of a kind Sugar Mill Home with 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and sleeps 6 people. Come and enjoy!!

Annaly Mill will be featured in HGTV 'You Live in What?' on March 29, 2013 at 8:00pm. It was 'home base' for Jon and Gina Brunson of 'Addicted to the Outdoors' tv show filmed on St. Croix and aired on the Outdoor Channel in December 2011 and January 2012.

Mango and turpentine trees line the driveway. Oleander, hibiscus and African tulip trees bloom in vibrant colors around the mill. At the end of the walk leading to the dramatic entrance of the mill, you’ll enter a large circular living room with a stunning arched window on the far wall. Up the quaint curving stairway is one bedroom with its own bathroom. Down another stairway and connected to the mill is a modern kitchen, dining area, great room, two air conditioned bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Stepping outside you’ll find extensive patios for your morning coffee or for dining al fresco in the soothing evening breeze. A hot tub overlooks the ruins of the 18th century sugar factory. West end beaches and restaurants are an 8-minute drive. Just up the road is the Virgin Islands Sustainable Farm Institute, which was featured in the October 2009 issue of Caribbean Travel and Life magazine.

Beautifully furnished, private and secluded, Annaly Mill is a truly unique site for the artist, writer, or discerning Caribbean traveler wanting to experience a tranquil plantation setting reminiscent of the Danish days on St. Croix.

This renovated historic sugar mill, built in 1803 for grinding sugar cane using wind power, was first transformed into a vacation retreat in 1946 by Ward Canaday, President of Willy’s Overland Inc. Mr. Canaday’s company provided all of the Jeeps for the US Armed Forces during World War II. Since then it has been visited by President Harry S. Truman and Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.

Exotic atmosphere - tasteful lodging in upscale e

  • 5 of 5
The Annaly Mill offers all you can dream of whether you are a family of 5 as we were (3 boys, 13, 11 and 7 + 2 adults) or a couple looking for a romantic get away. It is rare to find accommodation where you hear only tropical sounds, see no electric wires or hear no traffic. The interior was tasteful reflecting the various eras which the Annaly Mill had undergone and everything was fully functional. Annaly Mill was a perfect base for all excursions on St Croix. We all want to go back.

Lovely tip-top Stay at Unique Historic Landmark

  • 5 of 5
Our experience staying at the Sugar Mill at Annaly Farms was a real treat! The accommodations were very comfortable and up to date, and every amenity was at our fingertips. The Sugar Mill is well situated and imbued with history. Everywhere you look at this vast estate you see lovely ruins, and you can easily spend restful time sitting on the vast patio overlooking the beautiful grounds.
The owners of the Sugar Mill couldn’t have been nicer. They are very helpful and accommodating. We hadn’t been back to St. Croix in 18 years, and were once again enchanted by its beauty. Our girls, ages 10 and 14 had an equally wonderful time and asked if we could please return to this very spot every year!
Yes, we will definitely be back!

Unique experience

  • 5 of 5
Staying at historic 200+ year old Annaly Mill was a unique experience. It sits high on a hilltop with a large terrace overlooking a great expanse (valley, distant hills, rain forest) in which the colors and sights are constantly changing. This is a great place to kick-back. The beach and town are just a short drive away, but the location was so beautiful, quiet and restful we were never in a rush to head out for the day. The house is nicely renovated and comfortably furnished, yet many of the original features of the mill are in tact. The owners were very helpful and accomodating. We will go back there again.
