We stayed at the Belvedere for the New Year's Celebration and spent two nights there a few years back. Our rooms were in the attic of the "mansion". First thing I noticed was a dark rusty (what looked like blood) stain on the pillow on my bed. It gave me chills right away. The attic had three bedrooms and one living room. Everything was sticky and dusty. I stayed there with a family of 6 and we all felt uneasy there. Like we were being watched. Kids were afraid to leave our side. Towards the evening on our first night, we stayed in our bedrooms and my mother was reading her rosary. Suddenly, we heard a loud explosion! We all ran out of our rooms and saw that an old antique mirror that hung on the wall, simply exploded into a million pieces. The evil of Belvedere did not like the rosary being read, evidently. We hardly slept that night. Kids hated the energy of the place and called it hunted. The following morning we noticed that in the heart of winter, we have not heat nor hot water. Nice! We approached a very snobbish hostess and told her about our misfortunes with the mirror and heat. She suggested a bungalow rooms for an extra $150 per night each family! There was not heat in the bungalow ether! So we were moved around until the clock striked midnight! The New Years "dinner" was a pure disgust! Pea soup, for instance had no taste at all. It had no flavor! It was green alright but who can prove it's made out of peas! "Well done stake" was dripping with blood and tasted like rubber. Service was poor and slow. We were so miserable. With horrid service, evil forces at power and disgusting food our New Years celebration was ruined. Please save your money and do not ever go there!
