Belcour: The Place

About Belcour Lodge

The word “Belcour” is French for ‘beautiful courtyard’ (belle cour) and our property is truly an enchanting and peaceful place. It is situated in a valley ringed by the towering Blue Mountains. The Mammee River runs through the orchard at the end of the garden.

The 7- Acre property dates back to the 1800s and there is a description of the property in 1840 in the archives which is remarkably accurate to this day. It talks about a “well fruited” property in the Blue Mountains. The house is an old wooden structure, originally built in a 19th-century plantation-style.  Belcour Lodge has changed hands several times even being a lodge at one point. It was originally the overseer’s house for the Belcour Estate. The property was a catchment for coffee growing all over the mountains.

This little piece of paradise inspired us to start a cottage industry business using the peppers and fruit that grew in abundance using old-fashioned traditional methods.

The Garden

Numerous varieties of birds inhabit Belcour’s sanctuary. You can hear the doves cooing and the parrots squawking and the hum of the bees as they feast on whatever fruits in season. The old garden has three levels and nd the weather conditions and temperature are perfect for a large variety of heliconia, orchids, anthuriums, and other exotic tropical trees and plants. Almost every season some trees of flowers are blooming.
