      My friends and I had a lovely time at the Bell Mansion Tea House. The decor is Victorian - such lovely dresses, hats, dolls, tea sets!!! The ladies rest room had a dollhouse, vanity, and so many other lovely items to gaze upon. Pamela has quite a few loose leaf teas, some decaf black teas, and several rooibos teas. We each choose our own tea cups and tea pots from an extensive array.

      We had the Mansion Tea Service - lovely fruit appetizer, delicious salad, soup, sandwiches, scones, and a dessert. The food was beautifully presented and was wonderful. Pamela did not hurry us, and brought the next course when we were ready.

      The Bell Mansion is beautiful, the food delicious, and the atmosphere was perfect for friends to get together and talk. It was a delightful, refreshing time for us.

      I am very sad about the this wonderful tea house closing as well. It was such a wonderful and beautiful light for our community. So sad this wonderful landmark will be empy again:( I will treasure the wonderful memory's spent there watching hilarious murder mysterys, candlelight dinners, and little girl tea party's with my daughter. May God bless you and be with you in all your future endevours! My family appreciates all you have done for us!

      I am so saddened to hear this news regarding your closing. I have been fortunate over the past few years to have tea at your wonderful mansion. It was second to none! It will be greatly missed and it comes as a major surprise.

      Whatever your nest endeavor may be, I wish you the very best!

      My wife and I are vegetarians. When I tried to make a reservation the person on the phone was not at all accommodating. I was told to look at the menu online to see if there was enough we could eat!!! How do we know from the menu if items such as soup are meat based? Afternoon Tea is 'our thing.' We have visited well over 100 tea roooms in the US and Europe. Always our dietary needs have been graciously accommodated; but NOT by Bell Mansion! It seems they have lost sight of the most important factor in business success - doing whatever it takes to have happy customers. They lost us at the point of the reservation by making it clear that they don't really care about pleasing and accommodating even potential customers. We assume they have all the business they need! We did not eat at Bellwood; but could not post this review without filling in all the fields; it may be good, but from our experience trying to make a reservation we felt 'lacking' in most categories would be appropriate.

      Bell Mansion Tea House is a treasure of an experience. Fancy, yet accessible enough to enjoy with a friend for a quiet afternoon.

      Fine china and beautiful decorating are part of the atmosphere complimented by welcoming, friendly service. The servers are willing to be flexible when possible, and make sure customers have what's desired. Over several years, it's been great for the Tea Mansion to begin using loose tea for brewing. I do think with the lovely décor, elegant china, delicious food, that fabric placemats on table would be more fitting than plastic lace. I'm picky, but don't care for plastic- and it doesn't seem consistent with the era, either...:}

      I appreciate the Sunday aft. hours as well.

      The Victorian decor was exquisite. Tea and food selection was excellent. We would have wished for loose tea (more in keeping with the time period) or tea bags in the pot, so more hot water could be added. (Quantity of tea was not enough for the whole meal.)Otherwise, a lovely experience. I will be back and bring friends.

      I recently visited the Bell Mansion for my birthday party and again for the Valentine's dinner. The Mansion is beautiful!! During the Valentine dinner, there was live piano music. It was a romantic and relaxing atmosphere.

      The staff do an excellent job of making each visit memorable and enjoyable. They readily answer any and all questions I've had. They are knowledgeable and professional.

      The food and tea are both delicious! I have tried the caramel red tea, white peony tea, and the special valentine's tea. All were fabulous! The Sweetheart Tea was very filling and it was nice to be able to try a wide variety of dishes. The Valentine's dinner was much larger than expected and absolutely divine! The cheddar biscuits are delicious.

      The Bell Mansion remains one of my favorite places in Blair County!!

      My mom and I have been wanting to spend the afternoon at Bell Mansion for a long time. Between our busy schedules, it has been difficult to make this possible, but we finally found time to go a couple of days ago. The tea house happened to have a special Dickens Tea, so we thought that it would be a perfect first visit. As soon as the doors were opened for us, my mom and I were amazed at how beautiful the tea house was. The atmosphere was so special, from the decor, to the music, to the service. We did not feel rushed, but welcomed. The food and tea were absolutely incredible beyond words, and we left the tea house very full (and I have a huge appetite!). We felt that the entire experience was well worth what we paid for. My mom had gone to a different tea house about 10 years ago (she can't remember which one), and she told me that the Bell Mansion experience went above and beyond the experience she had at the other tea house. I would highly recommend visiting the Bell Mansion Tea House, and I will definitely tell my family and friends about the Tea House as well! Thank you to the Decker family and Tea House staff for a very memorable afternoon!

      Having grown up 'having tea,' I have had the opportunity to enjoy many tea houses around the world. Whenever I travel, I make sure to find a new house to try. While I have loved almost every experience I have had with tea, I have to say that one of the best is here in my own backyard - The Bell Mansion Tea House. What makes it so wonderful? A relaxing atmosphere with no rush, large portion sizes, delicious food and elegant choices, incredible decoration, the owners do an amazing job of being in character and the price is very reasonable. Having people who honestly do care about you and your experience makes all of the difference. I can honestly say that I enjoy the Bell Mansion more than tea in London or at the Ritz in Chicago. Top notch!!!

The decor, the service, especially the presentation - all top notch. At each visit we learn fascinating things from Miss Emily about the history of the Bell Mansion, the customs of tea, etc. Coming two times this week with different friends and looking forward to both. Thank you for rescuing this fine old house and making it a local treasure.

      Our party randomly stumbled across the Bell Mansion Tea House this past Friday thanks to a fruitful internet search. For once, the internet's top hit for tea houses was right on the money.

      Bell Mansion Tea House was an all around delightful experience. Upon crossing the threshold, we were immediately welcomed by an attentive staff and a delightful aroma.

      The next two hours flew by in a wonderful haze of delicious food, excellent company, and charming decorations.

      We will definitely be returning to the Bell Mansion Tea House. The charm of the staff and the holiday decor is a must see. Plus, we're intrigued to experience the different themed teas in the future.

      Our only suggestion would be to sell some of those wonderful candles in your gift shop. We loved the different scents in the rooms and we were hoping to purchase some of them. Maybe next time...

      Five co-workers, but more importantly, friends, set aside three hours on Sunday (early fall) and shared a wonderful experience. In our own backyard, in the Borough of Bellwood is an exquisite establishment, Bell Mansion Tea House. This beautifully restored Mansion was hosted by both charming and professional owners who provided the most immaculate attention to every detail during our maiden journey. We each enjoyed the luscious cuisine, countless choices of freshly brewed teas, and breathtaking seasonal decorum, amidst the most relaxing of environments. Our group just had a return visit this past Sunday for a second time to get an early start on the holiday season. The experience was as fabulous as the first, as the magic of the holidays surrounded all of us. What a treat, not surely to be missed.

      What a fabulous first visit. Went to the Bell Mansion Tea House today with my sister and niece. From being greeted at the door I instantly felt like we went back in time to an era that was calm and relaxing. Emily and Ryan are such great hosts. We enjoyed the soup, salad, scones, sandwiches, butter toffee cake and of course tea. We selected different pots of tea so as to sample different types. I would definitely suggest the cinnamon apple red tea, it has a wonderful fall aroma on such a beautiful day. During our visit Emily described the many up and coming events and themes for the remainder of fall and the holiday season. We plan to return with friends several more times before the new year. Great place for a friendly gathering while enjoying homemade food and wonderful tea. This place is a must, don't miss out on a local treasure!

      The staff, food, tea (we enjoyed an excellent whole leaf decaf with our dinner) and Edwardian Era atmosphere were exceptional. I have attended both a candlelight dinner and a Murder Mystery event. My wife has also enjoyed lunch and tea. The food was excellent, very reasonably priced and the Murder Mystery was enjoyed by all. This is a five star establishment. I highly recommend it.

As soon as you walk up to the door you are greeted and the door is open for you. The whole atmosphere is welcoming and cozy. And the fair is even more spectacular! I would suggest this tea house to anyone and everyone it is a must go to place for any afternoon tea lover. I can't wait to see there Christmas decorations, and to try there holiday tea blends.

      'A good time was had by all' is too much of a cliche to describe the evening I spent at the latest Murder Mystery performed at the Bell Mansion Tea House!

      From the moment I walked in the door and heard Mozart's Quartet in the background, I felt like I stepped back in time to a more relaxing era. The atmosphere alone was worth the visit before we even ordered our tea. The summer special seaside tea was unique and refreshing. After ordering our tea (mine being the delicious golden monkey) we started with a dish of sorbet sprinkled with coconut and a champagne glass of sparkling grape juice to cleanse our palates. Next came the lite spinach salad with strawberries and almonds dressed with a vinaigrette and soup du jour - creamy chicken and wild rice - served in a delicate teacup with tiny cheddar bisquits. Finally came the coconut/lime scones with lemon curd and devonshire cream and our tea sandwiches. We leisurely ate, chatted, sipped our tea and enjoyed the relaxing music and atmosphere of a beautifully restored mansion. We started to plan our next visit before we completely finished this visit. May God bless the family and staff at Bell Mansion as they continue to offer a place of refreshing for us.

      My sister-in-law and I visited your tearoom on July 19, 2012 and enjoyed it enough that I have been telling everyone about it. It is so amazing! Being from 'Victorian Bellefone', our visit was like stepping back in time. We enjoyed the hats (mine matched my blouse}, the hot tea (we had the 'White Blueberry'} was excellent, and the turkey club with BLT was an exceptional choice. My husband said he would bring me back on our 50th anniversary on Aug. 25, 2012, if the Lord is willing (he has a number of health issures, so we will have to see what the day brings}. If the Lord is willing, I am also planning on bringing my daughter/daughters-in-law, and granddaughter to the tearoom as soon as I can arrange it. Your establishment is a place you want to return to! Thank you for doing all the work to bring this mansion for our enjoyment.

      I have heard Bell Mansion mentioned several times but until recently had not the chance to experience it. While a friend of mine from Michigan was visiting I decided to give it a go and was in complete shock that such a gem is hidden on main street. The service is down to earth and makes you feel right at home. The very knowledgeable staff tell you everything you should know about the teas and other treats offered. ( wild rice soup is amazing!) The inside is beautifully restored and feels like a trip back to when things moved just a bit slower. The food and teas are absolutely to die for. On another note reservations are the way to go as within a short time of being there the house fills the voices and laughter of central Pennsylvania unwinding for lunch.

If I had a single complaint, it is only that I wish they were open longer so that I could have more time to enjoy this facility! Massive kudos to the Decker family for creating such a wonderful tea house! We will certainly be back!

      Not only do I enjoy going here for lunch, but I just had the most wonderful evening with my daughter & both my mom & dad for the 'Murder/Mystery' The cast of chacters were very entertaining & had us all laughing and guessing from the moment we walked in the door! My daughter is 9 years old and very much enjoyed trying to figure the 'who done it' It is amazing the way they involve the guests who attended! If you are looking for a very fun event for the family or just a night with the girls or even a date night, this is definately the place to go! It's a wonderful alternative to the normal places we think of to 'grab a bite' So, next time you find yourself wondering what can we do today? Stop in and enjoy the friendly people and inviting atmosphere of The Bell Mansion! You will not be disapointed!

      We held my mother's surprise 75th birthday party at the Bell Mansion and it could not have been better! Her friends who attended phoned in the days that followed to say what a treat it was. Everyone wore hats and had a grand time. The food was terrific and the tea was tasty. Emily Decker was wonderful to work with and help with all the arrangements. She was also our server on the special day. Everyone enjoyed hearing about the important role the Bell Mansion played in local history. Thanks to all the staff who made my mother's day very special.

      We had a lovely time at the Bell Mansion Tea House. I arrived a bit early for our reservations and was invited to peruse the gift shop. A nice way to spend the time waiting for my friends. The atmosphere was refined, yet friendly. We were seated in a beautifully period decorated tea room. The service was excellent, the food delicious and we were entertained with the history of the Bell Mansion. Each course was served at a comfortable interval that allowed for leisurely, unhurried dining and conversation. The food menu was quite extensive for a tea house as were the varieties of teas. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it will be a destination for further luncheons.

      I have been to the Murder Mystery and Candlelight Dinner and they were both excellent. But we recently had a Little Lady Tea for my daughter's birthday party which FAR exceeded my expectations. I can't praise this place enough. The theme was ALICE IN WONDERLAND and the tables were beautifully decorated accordingly with cards, painted roses, and of course tea pots full of superb teas. We were promptly greeted at the door by the QUEEN OF HEARTS. We also added an adult table for family and guests who wished to stay for the festivities and meal. Emily and Ryan were more than accommodating for my every request. The birthday girls in elegant dresses had a fabulous time learning proper formal tea etiquette and changing fancy hats every 15 min. They were thrilled to be pampered like royalty. The food was excellent, the service wonderful and polite, the atmosphere and presentation were above and beyond...clean down to the birthday cake served in a tea cup. It was truly a birthday my daughter will cherish and remember forever.

      I have had the pleasure of attending two Murder Mysteries with my boyfriend, a luncheon and a private Little Ladies and Gentlemen tea party with a Beatrix Potter theme. I can not say enough about the variety of services offered. The Murder Mysteries were engaging and entertaining, with a variety of tea provided in individual tea bags to experience. Much to my surprise my boyfriend enjoyed the first one so much we returned for another the very next month. The luncheon I enjoyed with my sister was calming and unhurried with a delightful pot of tea served with the most wonderful scones and cucumber and cheddar sandwiches. The Little Ladies and Gentleman tea party was AMAZING! The theme was carried out in the entire menu including the selection of teas. I had three eight year old boys and two six year old girls and they were so well behaved and entertained due to the theme and interaction with 'Miss Emily'! The party FAR exceeded my expectations. I was then able to purchase a chamomille tea in the gift shop that I particularly enjoyed during the Beatrix Potter themed tea. I can not say enough about Bell Mansion Tea House...a wonderful experience no matter what your interests.

I was so impressed and enjoyed the 'pampering', the teas, the delicious salad and mint chocolate chip scones that I made a reservation for the following Saturday! Again on March 24th- nine guests in my group had the same experience of the most relaxing, non hurried fellowship with friends and family enjoying the beautifully decorated and historical Bell Mansion. The service was wonderful (thank you Emily, Ryan and Jacob) and kudos to the chef in the kitchen! We look forward to another tea in the future and will definately be attending a Murder Mystery soon!

From the moment you stepped into the Mansion, you were treated like royalty. The atmosphere of the Mansion at Christmas time was breathtaking and the candle lit room was romantic. But the best part was the meal. From the soup through the dessert all were beautifully presented and delicious. The attention to detail was evident and the service was outstanding. We all felt quite relaxed and pampered. Even the men enjoyed it. Not mnay tea houses appeal to the men but this one does. The Candlelight Dinner is a perfect night out for a group of diners who want excellent food and service along with great atmosphere. We also enjoy the parlor luncheons and are about to take in a Murder Mystery. Such a great place and addition in our community.

      This was beyond my wildest imagination! The Bell Mansion is beautifully restored and as the charming doorman greets you with polished chivalry, you truly feel as if you stepped back in time. From A to Z, from top to bottom, this place is spectacular! I ate so much due to the fact that everything sounded tempting and I must say, everything was as mouth-watering as it read on the menu. The scones, the sandwiches and OH THOSE CHEDDAR BISCUITS! They are worth the drive alone, trust me. If all the above isn't enough, the matriarch who runs the giftshop is a hoot! She's helpful and loves to chat with each and every customer. You might have frequented many Tea Houses, but you haven't been to the quintessential Tea House until you stop by Bell Mansion. It is a breathtaking experience from the moment you walk in until you drive away. Take my word for it!

The scones were perfect - not too heavy as sometimes happens.

      It's a treat to be in the original mansion and they have done an outstanding job of decorating. Every room and every nook and cranny has something to delight the eyes!

      I just enjoyed a truly enjoyable and very relaxing visit to the Bellwood Teahouse. Having never experienced a tea house before, I was a tad apprehensive, but Emily and Ryan were perfect hosts and I felt at ease immediately. The atmosphere is amazing and the decor and furnishings are first class. Emily, Ryan and their families are truly blessed with God-given talents and they are putting them to good use. The tea is some of the best I've tasted and the salads and tea sandwiches are absolutely delicious. The fancy hats were a bonus. I haven't worn a hat for years, but I did today. The gift shop has some really nice items and all are reasonably priced; a Christmas shopping experience awaits the guests. I'm looking forward to returning soon ~ with Barb Wible, my daughter, Bethany, and hopefully other friends.

      This was my first visit to the tea house and it was absolutely divine! The tea was wonderful and the food a perfect compliment. This is some of the best white tea I've ever had. I honestly had no idea what to expect, having been to a few places that called themselves 'tea houses', but really weren't. Bell Mansion exceeded all of my expectations! The hats were exquisite and the atmosphere was just perfect! Everyone on staff was extremely friendly and helpful. More so, they were also polite - a rarity even in fine dining establishments these days. The proprietors love what they do and it shows. I can't wait to go back and bring my friends! It was, quite literally, the perfect experience.

      My first visit was for a friend's baby shower yesterday. Everyone enjoyed the hats! I was very impressed with what the owners have done with this property. It's beautifully decorated. The furnishings, china, and silver take you back in time and help to set the mood for feeling pampered and special, which is how the staff (in their period costumes) treat their guests. There is even a nice gift shop. I collected the literature and hope to return with friends and family.

      Last Saturday evening, my husband Marty and I went to the Bell Mansion Tearoom to see a production of a Murder Mystery entitled 'Next of Kin', and to enjoy a dessert sampling. We were met at the entrance by Ryan, our host who immediately made us feel welcomed. What followed was one of the most magical and entertaining evenings in all of Blair County. The mystery was a story about Big Daddy Sugar Baker's 100th birhday party and the guest included all kinds of wacky and dysfunctional relatives, with all kinds of problem...and they were all liars! There was Rhett (superb) and Scarlett, Melanie and Ashley, Philly, Savannah, Bobby Jo the male nures, and of course, the family liar-I mean lawyer. We were seated in a very beautiful and opulent room with intimate tables adorned with Bone China and velvet backed chairs. The chandeliers dazzled and the talent overwhelmed. The dessert sampling was delicious...fresh pastries and Devonshire cream, fruits and teas of all kind..If you are looking for a truly wonderful evening out, a bit of whimsy and comfort, then you must visit the teahouse. The laughter was non-stop. It was our first visit, but it will not be our last...The love and care the owners put in to making this evening so wonderful is outstanding..LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!

      The Bell Mansion Tea house is such a wonderful place to go for any occasion. My wife and I went to a candlelight tea recently, and we both had a superb experience. The food was wonderful and the ambiance was truly beautiful. We have been to the tea cafe and the murder mysteries since then and we can't say enough about the friendly people and the great selection of teas and tasty food! When we want to step out of our hectic lives for a few hours and enjoy some quality time together, we always look to the Bell Mansion Tea House.

      I visited the Bellwood Mansion Tea House for the first time this weekend, and the experience far exceeded my expectations. The mansion and various tea rooms within are exquisitely decorated in true victorian style. The service, starting with the impeccably dressed gentleman who seated us to the young lady who served our tea and savories was superb. Speaking of the tea and savories, they were absolutely delicious. This is one of Bellwood's best kept secrets and a place I would highly recommend. Can't wait to return!

The interior design is magnificent, the service was outstanding and the food was uniquely presented and extremely tasty. We all loved the presentation of the food and the 'Happy Birthday cake' in the lovely china teacup. We will return to this place in the future to have candlelight dinners and plan on participating in a murder mystery dinner. What a great idea for fun! I can't say enough good about our experience; thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

      From the moment that one of the hosts opens the door, you know that you are truly in for a delightful treat. It was not at all what I expected.

      The Bell Mansion has been very quaintly and beautifully restored in the Victorian style, and offers a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

      The luncheon menu includes both sweets and savory tea sandwiches as well as a selection of salads. The tea selection includes many variety of teas incluing black, white, green, red and herbals. All teas are available by the cup or by the pot.

      The Earl Gray is an especially nice blend with true citrus notes perfectly balanced with the bergamot - neither overpowering the other, and neither leaving a bitter aftertaste.

      Tea sandwiches were neatly presented, and the chicken salad with almonds was especially pleasing.

      I am looking forward to the candle light dinner and murdery mystery nights!

A relative told us about Bell Mansion, and since we have a mutual love of tea and tiny sandwiches, we were very excited. The mansion itself is gorgeous from the outside. From the moment we walked up to the door, we were taken care of. The door was held for us (only place that has ever done that for me), we were offered fun hats and guided through the menu. The service was prompt and cheerful, the portions were perfect and the food was DELICIOUS. The proprietor even gave us a free dessert for our birthday.

      The Bell Mansion Tea House is definitely a must for anyone who loves tea and history, not to mention anyone who needs to brush up on their etiquette. Seeing the Bell Mansion restored to what it may have looked like in its heyday is simply beautiful. The minute you walk through the door, you feel as though you have stepped back in time to the Victorian era; the sounds of soft music playing, the smell of homemade treats baking, and the beautiful decorating. The staff is very professional and they make you feel like home. The hostess is extremely knowledgeable of tea and the history behind it, super friendly and very blessed with the gift of music. The food that is offered is out of this world!! I would encourage everyone to stop by the Bell Mansion Tea House in Bellwood for a wonderful time.
