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!

I spent 3 very relaxing nights at Bellaire B and B and would do it again in a heartbeat. David and Jim go above and beyond and the house was very elegant and tastefully furnished. I particularly liked the artifacts and art that grace each room. I took home a recipe or two that were delicious and my food allergies were not a problem for the cook. I can't think where I could get the same excellent stay for such a reasonable price. They have all the information you need for exploring the north state. Stay here! You won't be disappointed.

Our favorite get away Is the Bellaire. The Innkeepers, Jim and Dave see to it that all the details are in place so the guests will surely want to return. The breakfasts alone would make a return a must, but there is much more - the beautifully appointed rooms, wine hour, great location. Yes, we'll be back. Mary and Tom

Stayed for a quick night during the Antrim Paddle last weekend. David was incredibly kind and helpful, also very accommodating to the dietary needs of my brother (gluten free). The next morning they offered an incredible breakfast, unfortunately I had to hurriedly to meet a shuttle - however David quickly packed some food to go which saved me. I would stay there again in a heartbeat! Next time I won't be in a rush. Thanks guys!!

My husband and I have stayed here multiple times and always have a wonderful experience. This visit we had activities that stared earlier than the regular breakfast time, but David & Jim were more than accommodating, and made sure we were well-fed for our adventures!
