It has been almost two weeks since my college roommates and I met for our yearly mini-reunion at the Bell Mansion, and I'm still smiling about it. It was so much more than I ever expected. Our suite was very well appointed, with great attention given to every tiny detail. You thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and special. Truly I felt like a queen for a day. The food was outstanding and was served so attractively. Every meal brought new surprises, as we moved from one room to another. Thank you, Pamela, for the uplifting concert. That was a very definite WOW! I am truly looking forward to returning for another good dose of your hospitality. Thank you, Pamela and George, for all that you did to make our time perfect.

What a beautiful setting! A perfect way to spend Black Friday! Forget the crowds and spend quality time with Pamela. The mansion was beautifully decorated. We loved picking out tea cups and pots. So much for your senses to take in. Beautiful decorations. Tea was delicious. Service from Pam and George was excellent (and the kids learned small lessons on proper tea etiquette). Food was delicious - I recommend the green salads as well as the chicken salad with grapes. Mmmm!). We also got to tour the rest of the mansion. Such a beautiful day, beautiful place, beautiful company :-)

Each year my brother and I and our wives like to get together around Thanksgiving. My brother and his wife live in Michigan and my wife and I live in Massachusetts and we try to find a location that is half way to meet. We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to spend 3 glorious nights at the Bell Mansion with Pam and George as our hosts. The 2 bedroom suite was gorgeous and the accommodations were perfect. We were invited to partake in their annual Holiday Dinner on the Friday that we arrived and the food was to die for. That was just the start. We were served three heavenly breakfasts and Pamela 's teas were phenomenal. Pamela served all of the teas herself and we particularly loved coming home on Saturday night after a long day of sightseeing to find tea and pie waiting fo... (more)

My husband, Edward Bell, great-great-great-great grandson of the original Edward Bell and I visited Bellwood this past October and were delighted to find that the Bell Mansion was both a tea room and a bed and breakfast. The rooms were exquisitely decorated, the teas and food were delicious, and Pamela and George were the icing on the cake! They were so gracious to us and made us feel like royalty. We spent the night there and were greeted the next morning with a delicious gourmet breakfast and a piano accompaniment by Pamela that can only be described as heavenly! Our only regret is that we don't live closer in order to visit more often. It was a wonderful experience!

I finally had the chance to enjoy tea there today and it was worth the wait. The historic mansion is exquisite and filled with room after roomful of decorative touches which Pamela takes the time to show to her admiring guests. The tea selection is huge and each course from appetizer to dessert was just delicious. Relaxing atmosphere and treated with such genuine kindness by this lovely couple. Pamela was especially sweet to my aging mother. thank you for a most wonderful experience!

I recently visited Pamela's Victorian Tea and Music at Bell Mansion with my mom and one of her friends. We had a lovely experience and appreciated the special touches (piano music, poem recitation) that Pamela and her husband added to make our afternoon so memorable. I have been to many teas and this was my favorite! We loved the six courses we were offered and that the menu included fresh fruits, salad, and soup along with the delicious tea sandwiches and scones. After our tea, we toured the upstairs bed and breakfast. It is decorated beautifully and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful get-a-way. We are looking forward to returning and trying out one of their special events some time soon!

WOW! What a treasure this place is !Each time we have been to one of Pamela's teas, we have been overjoyed ! And now that Pamela and George have moved into the historic Bell Mansion, things have gotten even better ! The exquisite Victorian decor and obvious attention to every detail is matched by the lively personalities of the owners. Pamela and George put on the best presentation with a spirit that shows their love for what they do.They make every tea event a day to truly remember.And the Christmas dinner and tea was unbelievable. From the ambiance to the great food and tea, to an incredible music presentation . Pamela,your iano playing is second to none and your sister Dorie ,who flew in for the occasion has the absolute most beautiful voice I have ever heard.There was not a dry eye in the sold out place ! People left there feeling so warm and uplifted, a night never to be forgotten. Pamela's Victorian tea and music is a rare treasure.

Peter, It was wonderful to read your enthusiastic review! We will never forget your smiling faces as your beautiful family tried on hats, and enjoyed the etiquette presentation, even Jackson had a hat on!
We strive to do our best to please our guests, and of course one of the ways we do that is through music. Dorinda Walsh was the finest soloist we have ever featured at the Mansion, and it would be great if she lived nearby so we could have her come sing at least once a month!
We look forward to the day when you can come see us again, and it will be with much rejoicing!

My childhood friend and I had THE MOST delightful experience at Pamela's Victorian! It is such a charming tea room. The food and service were both outstanding! Pamela is very engaging and personable, and she goes out of her way to ensure that her guests have an amazing tea room experience.
The décor is captivating too - so much to see! The added touches - such as allowing guests to borrow hats and accessories; and allowing guests to select their own tea pots/tea cups also adds to the experience. I HIGHLY recommend Pamela's Victorian. I look forward to visiting the Altoona area again so that I can embark upon Pamela's Victorian again! My experience there more than surpassed my expectations too - I assure you that you won't be disappointed if you visit Pamela and The Bell Mansion.
