By the way, We also have 3 other locations to choose from!

We wish you a warm country welcome to our historic family run Bed & Breakfast. Since opening Bellwood Inn (which was our first business) in 1929, Bellwood Inn has had the pleasure to welcome guests from all over the world including America, Germany, France, Israel, North and South Korea, Japan, England, Russia and Australia just to name a few. It's a tradition we hope to continue well into the future!

Bellwood Inn features 5 newly renovated rooms all located on the second floor each with private jacuzzi bathrooms and luxury pillow top beds. Sit and relax on our two story wrap around deck or by our bon-fire fire pit near the Bellwood forest! Check out Bellwood Inn's Website here!

The Rolling Rapids features 4 waterfront rooms with 2 double beds and a private bathroom in each, 8 Standard rooms with 1 or 2 beds each, one 2 bedroom unit, and 4 hostel beds.
