We had the best time at the Hotel Bellwether. We spent 3 nights there; delicious food (we only ate breakfast there), and very good service in a fabulous setting. Our room was spotless. We can't wait to go back.

This was my first time staying here, and I really enjoyed it. Rooms are very nice and clean, staff are friendly and helpful, lots of walking trails in the area, and many good restaurant options within walking distance. Will certainly stay here again. And Stella the hotel dog is very sweet!
