Belcour Lodge (left at a white milestone marker below Maryland and 10 minutes from Papine, by appointment only) is a beautiful private, colonial-era home set in a lovely, little river valley amid expansive gardens. Robin and Michael Lumsden offer Culinary Tours that include a stroll around the yard. Visitors will find an apiary with around 100 colonies, a citrus orchard, and other fruit trees. Robin markets Belcour Blue Mountain Honey, as well as Belcour fruit preserves, chutneys, and hot sauces, produced on a cottage-industry scale from all natural, local ingredients. The garden tour is accompanied by a gourmet brunch, lunch, or high tea (US$25 per person). Orchids and a host of other flowers attract a wide variety of birds, most notably beautiful hummingbirds. You’ll want to take home some honey and sauces--they’re outstanding.
