Fern Brae Hotel → Falcondip → The Island Inn → Couples Tower Isle
- The first newspaper advertisement for the Fern Brae Hotel is July 6, 1950. Double rooms now available. Advertised as half-a-mile from the Tower Isle Hotel, but it looks adjacent to me.
- In May 1956 the Fern Brae Guest House is listed for sale. It remains open.
- In December 1958, the hotel opened as Falcondip with 53 rooms, each with private bath and balcony. Some air conditioned. Kingston businessman Alexander Watkis undertook an elaborate expansion and reconstruction job on the original structure. The new cliffside swimming pool holds 50,000 gallons. The cuisine, motif, and entertainment was Jamaican.
- In November 1961, the hotel, now one of Sharpe Resort Hotels Ltd., underwent a face lift. New features are the thatched roofed canopy and the cocktail lounge on the main floor known as the Maroon Bar, with a motif representing 18th century Maroon Life. A native village will be the venue for wining, dining and dancing.
- In 1965 it was reconstructed and refurbished and became the Island Inn Hotel. It was a blend of "olde England" and colonial Jamaica.
- Island Inn closed in 1971 and became part of the adjacent Tower Isle Hotel.
