Blue Creek Hillside Bed & Breakfast

Blue Creek Village, Orange Walk

Hotel Description
The peaceful setting and warm hospitality invites guests to feel at home when they stay at the Hillside Bed & Breakfast. A large veranda and overlook provide magnificent views of the valley that summon one to rest, relax, reflect and enjoy the surroundings. The seven room guest house, located at the top of the winding driveway, provides clean, comfortable rooms with a constant breeze in the evenings. Two private, thatched cabanas with their own verandas are also available. There are cooking facilities in the cabanas and in the guest house, although guests will not want to miss the full, Mennonite-style breakfast that is also available!

History & Owners
Appropriately named for the location on a hillside, guests can enjoy spectacular views of the valley and the warmth of Mennonite hospitality. Blue Creek Mennonites are known for being progressive, meaning they have electricity, vehicles and use modern technology. John and Judy Kl assen decided to open the hotel in the year 2000 because many people came to the community but there was no hotel available. They are active in the community through their church and they also stay busy with their family of 10 grown children and many grandchildren. In addition to the hotel, they have a cattle ranch and guests can accompany John on a cattle round-up and help Judy to milk the cows!
