Cost: (After tax) $77/room per night (we booked 2 rooms for 2 nights)-this includes breakfast if you live at Bellwood Inn B&B. (if you live at DreamCatcher Inn, you can pay $10 for breakfast)
Room: Four of us friends went to Algonquin around August 18th, 2013, and stayed at Bellwood Inn B&B for 2 nights. We really enjoyed the "traditional" Canadian decoration of our rooms (quilts with flower patters, carved cupboards, little animal statues on top of bed).
Breakfast: We thought the breakfasts were great. Each day we had a fresh piece of fruit/yogurt, and either a breakfast sandwich and or a hot breakfast plate, with meat, which we really like. They also served coffee and tea. The cafe is really neat too.
Washrooms: One of the washrooms (the large one on the second floor) looks like a mansion- very fancy. The only thought is that there are only 2 washrooms shared between 6 rooms (each room having around 2-3 guests) They are a little too frequently occupied sometimes.
Barbecue: The barbecue is ok for most part (located at the back of the house patio), however, there is no light on top of the patio/back of the house, so we couldn't see anything during the night while bbq-ing. It was quite a pain, a suggestion for the owners is to install a movement-sensitive light at the back of the house in case guests arrive in late at night and needs to use the barbecue to eat.
Overall: We've enjoyed our stay at Bellwood, the owners and family are nice, the place is nice, would come again! (definitely worth the price)
