The historic Fisherpond Plantation House was a sugar plantation, built in 1635 and was much later restored by the new owner John Chandler, a former hotelier.
John, the former owner of the Pink Ocean Hotel and a specialist in building and repairing 18th and 19th century crystal chandeliers, has been trying to recreate the Fisherpond Great House to what it was back then, by furnishing it with a wide collection of period paintings and antique furniture.
On your Fisherpond Plantation Great House Tour you will experience that old-world charm setting while seeing unique Barbadian architecture at its best, complimented by period furnishings and beautifully manicured gardens & lush grounds. If time permits you can hear thirties dance music on the antique wind-up gramophone.
When on your tour of Fisherpond Plantation you can also visit John Chandlers’ chandelier workshop which is located on the premises.
The ‘Planters Buffet Lunch” at Fisherpond is exceptional, served on the grand dining table with the live piano music in the background.
