BELL HALLOW IS A VERY PRIVATE RIVER COTTAGE ON 5 ACRES

Ben Lomond Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bdrm, 2.5 Ba, sleeps a maximum of 4 people

Welcome to “The Bell Hallow.” Come enjoy art, wine, beach, music, biking, hiking, road side taverns, and small town live theater, live music, festivals and special events of the Santa Cruz Mountains. OR come paint, write that book, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the forest, where the sound of the birds and the river surround you on a quiet sunny afternoon by the pool or on the back deck over hanging the river. Hike miles of the San Lorenzo River, Big Basin, or get married here, or have a party. Bell Hallow received its name from the sound the bells would make in the river bed when the oxen brought the redwood trunks down river flues to the lumber mills to rebuild San Francisco after the Big quake and fire in 1906. Yes there is a history and great stories.

Gadsby in the ruff........: BELL HALLOW is a brown shingle 2 bedroom family cottage sitting on the San Lorenzo River in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Tastefully furnished with family antiques, oriental rugs, and lots of wonderful memories. A cozy deck hangs over the river bank...The perfect spot for a mint julip. BELL HALLOW offers Ping Pong, Horse shoes, other 'court' games, and swimming in a very private pool.

BELL HALLOW is a perfect venue for an intimate wedding, family party, company party etc. for events up to 100 people. There are 14 different gardens on this property that are wonderful for that special event. Please call 831-336-5926 for more information and prices.

A GREAT PLACE TO KICK BACK AND RELAX

  • 5 of 5
Wow - what a marvelous, relaxing place. It was spotlessly clean too. We didn't want to leave.

There's this wonderful feeling of being away from everything, yet we were only a few minutes from stores, restaurants, etc. For people from out of the area, this would be a great base to take day trips from (if you can pry yourself away). Santa Cruz is just a few miles down the road, and you're just over the hill from Silicon Valley. San Francisco isn't all that far away either.

We will definitely be back!

EXCELLENT STAY

  • 5 of 5
We came to stay at Bell Hallow for a wedding close by. We almost missed the wedding we were so relaxed and comfortable in the cabin! I enjoyed reading on the back deck, swimming in the pool and playing with the dogs. The cabin had everything we needed and I can't wait to come back!
