There are two sections to Belvidere : Old Belvidere, and Belvidere Estate.
Old Belvidere has one or two very historical buildings on it, including the old hotel, built in the mid-1800's, as well as the beautiful stone church.

Belvidere Estate is where newer homes are found, but also has a very old hotel, the Belvidere Manor, which still functions as a hotel with its own restaurant and pub. Although many of the homes are not very old, the developers have managed to retain the old charm of the area.

There is a no retail development in Belvidere.
