Sandpiper Inn Under Construction
By Schooner Bay
We are pleased to announce the groundbreaking of The Sandpiper Harbour Inn & Restaurant, a new landmark situated on Bay Street along the Schooner Bay waterfront. The Sandpiper will be Schooner Bay’s first full-service inn and restaurant serving the general public and is set for a soft opening in late 2014. Designed by renowned Urbanist architect, Bill Harris of Allison Ramsey Design in South Carolina, In part inspired by the lovely architectural patterns one sees in both Harbour Island and Charleston, The Sandpiper will be a lovely two-and-half storey traditional Bahamian verandah house accompanied by four tidy one bedroom cottages. With its restaurant, bar, other inn services and central location, we expect The Sandpiper will become a popular meeting place in the heart of Schooner Bay. The inn will offer seven rooms (three in the main building and four, one-room cottages in the back garden) and the restaurant will seat approximately 26-32 in the air-conditioned indoor dining room and 16-20 outside on the wraparound verandah. The culinary experience for The Sandpiper is being created by Cordon Bleu and Swiss trained master chef, Keenan Carroll -incorporating many of the locally grown and regionally caught products available at Schooner Bay and South Abaco.
