Well, I'm not pretty sure if Bell House Camp John Hay still allows tourists to have a photo shoot in here. I visited this place a long time ago together with my classmates.

Relaxing place but they charge too much on all the places you want to visit. Disappointed with the secret garden.. it was a secret coz we did not see any garden?

Its a family friendly place to visit. Find time to appreciate the beauty of antiques and the fresh scent of pine trees. Hopefully no one is getting married when you visit so you can visit the garden. Don't forgot to check trek behind the House.

This is a nice, well-maintained place. The pine trees are beautiful. A young adult student guide took us around for free. (We paid him a tip later.) He took us to the “cemetery of negativism”, “secret garden” and amphitheatre.

Lots of grade 12 tourism students are making the tour guides for free here. This made the Bell House more understandable as historical landmark.

The Bell House is an old, American homestead located inside Camp John Hay. Very well-maintained with an awesome gazebo/garden. Bit it would be nice to have a guide explaining the value of the property historically. The few plaques scattered around the actual house doesn’t really...More
