I've visited twice. Once a friend and I took a picnic, picked up some extras in the store, and dined at one of their outdoor picnic tables. In the store they not only sell several varieties of apples ... read more »

I wanted to go apple picking while visiting my daughter in Washington. She found Bellewood Acres, about an 1 1/2 drive for us. There are a variety of apples in their orchards, but only two available t... read more »
I always have a great time at BelleWood. So many good things that I can't choose a favorite! Delicious food and drink... their spirits are unlike anything else I've tried, so fruity and smooth. Great events happening throughout the year like an Apple Blossom Festival, Oyster Festival and fun concerts every Friday night out on the patio from 6-9 pm June -September. The view of Mt. Baker can't be beat. Listening to great music and sipping a cocktail at BelleWood is my happy place! Have to mention the apple cider and peanut butter. Both made there and taste out of this world delicious!

Fun spot... Good place to take the family for a snack / lunch. Between the gift shop, distillery tasting room, and covered outdoor space there is plenty to entertain folks. It is also nice and flat if you are taking grandma. They have concerts and events here as well.
We did a distillery tour, which was excellent. About 1.5 hours long, takes you behind the counter to learn about distilling from fermented mash through to the full range of Bellewood's products, with tastings of each. Entertaining, informative and interactive, I'd highly recommend it with or without the Groupon deal that was running this winter (2016). In the same building as the stills there's a nice bar, deli and shop, and fairly large cafe/lunchroom with pies and a full menu, including cocktails. We had the gin and tonic (delicious and unique) and a sharing plate with cheese, salmon/deli meats, olives, beets, etc. Reasonable, pretty average pricing with most drinks around $6-8. Table service, indoors and on the outdoor patio. Looks like a good venue for mid to large group events, and they apparently have live music nights on Fridays. Open to 5 pm most days.
For a young distillery, this was an excellent showing. I was impressed with the apple liqueurs that showed complexity and flavor. Definitely fruity, the apple brandy is a good choice. Make sure you check out the pies at the cafe. If you want a tour, make sure that you call ahead to ensure that tours are actually running.
Nice farm, but we picked honeycrisp apples, and half on them have a weird taste. Apparently this is normal in the US, and they told us the next day when we called that the weird taste we had in our apples sucks, but it is normal. We wish we could have known about this beforehand, and not picked the most expensive apple that we thought had a good flavour. We also talked to numerous people there about what type of apple we should pick, and they suggested honeycrisp, without apparently knowing that half our apples would be bad. I would not go back here again, or if I did, I would definitely not pick honeycrisp.
