IMAGINE driving up a winding road through the forest and crossing a bridge over 200 ft of beautiful waterfalls and 7 ponds flowing beneath to find yourself at the entrance of an enchanting and incredibly unique castle on one of the most beautiful lakes in Georgia, Lake Sidney Lanier. Unlike any home on the lake, the European architecture and character of this home is “surreal”.
If you are looking for the perfect escape to relax and renew the senses, Bellissimo Castle is your destination! Although the property is surrounded with numerous recreational activities and parks, shopping, dining, golf, and more, the 8 acre property provides you with its own private recreational area for your entertainment. Outdoor entertainment on the property includes your own private Pickleball court, Volleyball court, Cornhole, Horseshoes, and covered outdoor area with Ping Pong and Foosball.
Prepare your meals outdoors and lakeside at the well-equipped outdoor kitchen providing a large gas grill, Traeger grill, Smoker, Skillet and Pizza Oven while your family and friends are poolside or relaxing in our luxurious 8 person hot tub with lounger and LED color changing lighting adjacent to the outdoor kitchen (3 YETI coolers available).
Enjoy our outdoor sound system by downloading the Bellissimo SONOS app and listen to your favorite music from the outdoor speakers located on the front porch or backyard porches and pool area. Take a break from cooking and allow our CHEF to prepare an exquisite meal for you and your guests (reservations required and additional fees apply). Catering Service available for larger parties if required (additional fees apply and advance reservations required). Maid services are available to do your daily cleaning if you desire (additional fees apply).
After dinner, spend your evening sitting around the firepit or take a stroll up the Bellissimo Castle stone tower to the enchanting Rooftop Bar, or as we call it “The Cannon Bar”, equipped with a bar area, refrigerator, and firepit table for the perfect “end of the day” experience. Take in a breathtaking view of the stars, along with the tranquility of the lake in the evening.
