History

This place is really good and you get to learn about local History about the Family that lived there. They have plays there that you can sit outside and watch in the Summer

I travel by this place every week. I haven't been inside for years, but I really enjoyed it and I like being reminded of the history whenever I travel past.

More a house than a museum still a must see if your in the neighbourhood. Close to the Grant river. Combine it with other attractions in the area.

Food was great - old fashioned home cooked feel consistent with the late 1800 atmosphere. Staff was friendly - spent time talking and learning about guests. Small lunch room able to handle small groups under 15. Not expensive for atmosphere at a National Historic Site - unusual!

We had a very nice meal at the Homestead Restaurant that is beside the Bell house. We had our Grandkids with us and they also enjoyed the visit. There were things set up for the kids to try . So if you want to have a look back at yesteryear, please check it out.

This is a wonderful place to check out when in the area. All you need is about half a hour to take it all in. There is a small admittance fee but worth checking out. Plenty of parking. A great place to learn the history of Alexander Graham Bell, his family and his contribution to the telephone. Being raised in... More

For Alexander Graham Bell (Inventor of the telephone), I am sure at the time, it felt like a mansion, however in this day and age, the home is considered small, the tour takes maybe 10 minutes, not a lot of original furnishings, all are remodels, or replicas, stopping in would be a nice addition to a country drive, show the...
