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!

Have stayed here for the past ten years (at different times) and never had a bad experience. The owners and staff treat you like they have known you for years even if it's your first time there. I really like the cookies on the nightstand next to the bed!

We were warmly welcomed from the moment we walked through the door. The breakfasts were fabulous with careful attention to dietary needs of the guests. We loved the front wrap around porch for relaxing. Everything was perfect!

Everything was wonderful. Just off the main drag for a little quiet, but still close to everything on foot. The rooms, the hosts, the food--everything was amazing.

Comfortable room with an amazing tub. Breakfast was beyond compare. We left utterly stuffed because it was so good and kept taking "one more bite". This B&B is exquisite and the hosts have provided a welcoming, comfortable experience
