When you stay at "Bellrock", you can expect a very warm welcome, comfortable rooms with superb views, along with exceptional service. We stayed at the lodge for 8 days so comfort and convenience was of the upmost importance to us. Our room was next to the laundry and washing line, very convenient. The room itself was very comfortable, with a... More
