An Intimate Tropical Inn
Welcome To Estate Lindholm
Originally settled in the 1720’s by Dutch planters, the site of Estate Lindholm today is an intimate tropical inn set among restored Danish ruins adjacent to the National Park. The timeless charm of these former ruins creates a simple elegance and a tranquil ambiance.
Located on the hillside overlooking Cruz Bay, Estate Lindholm is the perfect point from which to enjoy all the beauty and activities that St. John has to offer. Each room enjoys views of the picturesque harbor of Cruz Bay, the island of St. Thomas, as well as the many other surrounding cays.
The Morrisette family has made their home on the property at Estate Lindholm since the 1950’s and Brion Morrisette resides there still. The inn is actively managed by Brion, who dearly loves St. John and enjoys sharing his knowledge of this beautiful island, as well as its colorful history and culture, with others.
