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!

A great B & B!

5 on August 14, 2014

This was our first stay in a B & B. We will be back! We were very impressed during the 2 day stay. The house is set in beautiful gardens which offer lovely areas to sit and relax.


Beautiful B&B!

5 on August 12, 2014

This was our first stay at this B&B and we will be back! The home and grounds are beautiful, it is peaceful and quiet and the breakfast was beyond amazing. You will not go away hungry or disappointed!


as good as it gets

Great accomodations with many areas to relax. A library for reading, a garden for walking, tucked back amongst trees. A true delight to take advantage of terrace off tuscany room. Hosts were at the meet and greet wine gathering with local wines, cheese and crackers. Breakfast was great...its your own fault if you go away hungry.


Phenomenal!!!

I almost didn't want to write a review, because the more people who know what an absolute TREASURE the Bellaire B&B is -- it will be impossible to get a room!! My husband and I have stayed at our fair share of B&B's -- we prefer it over a hotel-- and this one night stay at Bellaire B&B has topped the list (after 20 years of B&B's!). The atmosphere, the breakfast, the rooms, the view, the peacefulness, the hospitality.... absolutely # 1. We cannot say enough! THANK YOU!!

Had a fantastic stay at the Bellaire Bed and Breakfast, in fact we loved it so much the first time we went back the last day of our trip to stay again. Walking into the house and meeting keepers your felt at home right away. The wine hour was fun, getting to know some of the other guest, and they had all the menu's of resturants in town or near by for you to browse over and look at them. Breakfast was delightful and they catered to my celiac disease wich is an even bigger plus!


Nice stay

What a great find! Will definitely be returning!


Can't wait to come back!

A truly outstanding experience all-around. David and Jim are beyond accommodating, and incredibly fun to get to know. The room was very clean and well taken care of, breakfast was exceptional, and the grounds are fantastic. With the proximity to town, mountain biking, and kayaking, I can't imagine a better place to stay than Bellaire B&B. My wife and I are already discussing when we'll be back.


Terrific stay

Beautiful property, welcoming staff, wonderful accommodations and breakfast was so yummy! Wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely stay again when we return to the area! Thanks David and Jim!
