About

Recently voted the 12th Best Overall Bed & Breakfast in North America, Bellaire Bed & Breakfast sits at the top of a hill at the end of a tree lined drive. Located in a tranquil setting with delightful gardens, hammock and shuffle board court, yet the village is only a short walk away with quaint shops, movie theater, brew pub and fine dining. In the morning we serve a hearty breakfast that features a hot main dish, fresh homemade breads and muffins, fresh fruit, juices, and gourmet coffee, teas & hot chocolates. The cherry-paneled library is filled with hundreds of books, a blazing fireplace in winter and chairs to sink into, hiding away, dreaming of distant lands and adventure. Discover the sunken garden and enjoy a private sunny afternoon. The main house has 5 rooms all with private bath, queen size bed, air conditioning, in-room WIFI and wired high speed access in the Sitting room. Our carriage house features four luxury rooms all with private bath, king size bed, gas fireplace, TV/DVD, air conditioning, high speed WIFI and wired Internet access. Each afternoon, we gather on one of the wonderful porches or parlors and wind down or share stories over a glass or two of wine. After breakfast, our guests enjoy the convenient location of the inn and are off on adventures that may include golfing, skiing, boating, kayaking, art galleries, antiquing, wine tasting or hot-air ballooning. Come and let us positively spoil you!

Wonderful log weekend in Bellaire. We had been to Bellaire before but stayed in another B&B. I saw this one online and decided we wanted to try it. I CAN'T SAY HOW WONDERFUL IT WAS!!! Dave, Jim and Monica all made us feel comfortable from the time we stepped in the door. Our room ( Savannah Suite) was beautiful. Dave's breakfast can't be beat.... Best Bacon I have ever had. We liked it so much we have already booked to go back next year!!!


Great experience!

The Best B & B in Lower Michigan

This is our second visit to the Bellaire B & B and we absolutely love staying there. The "Innkeepers" are the very best, very personable, kind and very helpful. Rooms are charming and very, very clean. Breakfasts are to die for. (and they share recipes).


Great Experience!

Dave and Jim really go above and beyond to create a great experience for anyone who chooses to stay here. My boyfriend and I stayed for a night as part of a birthday weekend getaway- we should've just stayed here all 3 nights! Dave and Jim add a personal touch to your stay and have many great suggestions on dining and activities in the area. The Tuscany room was perfect with its jacuzzi and private porch. We will definitely be back!


Always incredible service!
