Old world charm with all the amenities for the business and leisure traveler. Each guest room having its own character and charm. Spacious verandas for relaxing amidst the soothing Caribbean breezes. It would be my pleasure to welcome you to this wonderful Colonial home, which we have meticulously appointed with all the amenities for your comfort and convenience. The Courtyard restaurant and collection of fine shops make "staying home" fun. THE GREAT HOUSE INN is located in the renowned Fort George area and is just 100 meters from the Caribbean Sea.
Around the corner stands the historic Fort Point Lighthouse at the entrance to the Belize Harbor and adjacent to the Baron Bliss Memorial, which was erected as a monument to the Englishman, Baron Henry Edward Ernest Victor Bliss. He lived aboard his yacht "Sea King", which was anchored just off the Fort George Point. Although he never set foot on Belizean soil, due to health reasons, he fell in love with the sea, the fishing and the charming qualities of its people. On his death on March 9th, 1926, he bequeathed a legacy of over a million dollars to Belize, the British Honduras, in a "Baron Bliss Trust". The 9th of March later became a public and bank holiday in this country. This Belizean landmark was built in 1927 by talented local craftsman and still retains its beauty, grace and charm. Now, this magnificent four-story colonial style residence in probably the largest classic wooden home still in existence in Belize. Originally built as a family home, this wonderful structure still provides the warmth and comfort reminiscent of the early colonial times of Belize. Spacious verandas at the front of the house allow you to relax and let go amidst the soothing embrace of the Caribbean breezes.
The colonial heritage and ambiance are faithfully preserved in all of the sixteen guestrooms. Each is individually color coordinated with a host of tasteful and comfortable appointments. The look and feel of yesterday with today's modern conveniences make THE GREAT HOUSE INN Belize's most desirable "outpost" away from home.
