The house is two stories (1,700 sq ft), with beds for 10, thick foam mattresses and bedding for an additional 4, and a large family room featuring a Yamaha home-theater entertainment center with HDTV and Blu-ray/DVD/CD disc player. The master bedroom is downstairs, and there are two bedrooms upstairs. Each level has a bath. The house has free hi-speed, wireless, internet (wifi).
Bellheim is located on a country road 4 miles outside of Bellville.

-- Enjoy the Hog Heaven cabin deep in the woods along Piney Creek (1 MILE FROM HOUSE). Play the owl tape at Hog Heaven. Owls will come and join in!

-- Explore miles of trails (throughout the 100 acres) with your four-wheeler (ATV, side-by-side) or bicycle.
-- Trek through Bellheim Springs on stepping stones (kids love it!)
Down at Piney Creek there's a large cabin called “Hog Heaven.” There are bunk beds for 4; bring sleeping bags for more. Next to it is the best little outhouse in Texas (give it a try!). Overnight in Hog Heaven for $50/nt; day use is free. Hog Heaven and Piney Creek are 1 MILE FROM THE HOUSE set back in the woods, accessible by car, AWAY FROM IT ALL! ADULT SUPERVISION REQUIRED! OVERNIGHT STAYS REQUIRE AN ADULT.
This year (2017) solar power and air conditioning are being installed in Hog Heaven. Do NOT plan on overnighting in Hog Heaven during summer months until finished--it's too hot in Texas! Will take this posting down when complete. Will try to complete by summer 2017. Day use is free and wonderful year-round!
There are Bellheim Springs that feeds our smaller (spring) pond and we have a stone trail to walk through and observe the springs. Children, especially, enjoy the trail!
Bring your favorite Blu-ray/DVD movie to enjoy the Yamaha home theater system. Or better yet, drive the Yamaha with your own audio/video content (e.g., Netflix or Amazon Prime movies, presentations, etal.), displaying video on the 37” HDTV and sending sound to all speakers. The Yamaha has cables for connecting your laptop computer or other personal portable video or music device. If your video player device has a HDMI or VGA jack, you can connect to the Yamaha. If it has neither, you will need to purchase or provide a special HDMI adapter for your device. All other cables and instructions are provided at the house.
Corriente cattle roam the back 90 acres--a Mexican breed used for Texas rodeos (slightly smaller in stature).
Pets ages 1 year or over are welcome.
