Bellaire Bed & Breakfast

212 Park Street , Bellaire, MI 49615 USA (Show map)


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!

My Review

5 on September 15, 2018

It was better than home away from home. I felt so very comfortable and the innkeepers are so kind. The people who were staying there with me were delightful and I had a great time chatting with them. There isn't anything I would change or desire to be different. I probably shouldn't have eaten so much but it's so difficult to turn down such wonderful, made from scratch food. I hope to stay there again in the future.

The Best of Everything You Might Desire

We have stayed in many B&Bs but without a doubt this is the best one. We have stayed here time after time over the last several years and never been the least bit disappointed. And it doesn't matter style it is - the bacon is to die for.

Always a great place to come back too!

We stay at the Bellaire B & B at least three times a year. We love staying here. We attended a wedding in August in Traverse City where there where hotel rooms already blocked for us. We choice to stay her and make the longer drive because we love the B &B, the cleanliness of the rooms, the breakfast is always great and the hosts are so welcoming. I would highly recommend this B & B.

An amazing experience!

Everything about this bed and breakfast exceeded our expectations. The owners were friendly, helpful, and the room and setting were gorgeous, and the food outstanding. It did seem a little expensive but once we arrived it was well worth the money!

Charming Hosts & Property

From the moment you start up the tree lined driveway it becomes obvious that it’s is a very cool property! I also got that same feeling when we were greeted by David, I felt welcome & excited for our stay. Everything was awesome from the food to the room! We will be back!

Bellaire B & B

Everything was wonderful from the moment I walked in the door. The staff is friendly and professional. The entire property is beautifully maintained with multiple outdoor seating options allowing one to enjoy the many views of the gardens. Each breakfast was magnificent and there were freshly baked cookies delivered to the room every morning with drinks and snacks available all day. In addition, the building is spotlessly clean. One could not ask for more.

Outstanding Visit!

5 on September 02, 2018

We stayed at Bellaire Bed and Breakfast a few weeks ago for two nights. We can’t say enough positive comments of our visit. The innkeepers, David and Jim, were friendly, kind, and informative. Our room, and the entire establishment, inside and out, was meticulously clean and so comfortable. I can’t say enough about the two delicious breakfasts we consumed. Both days, if there were items left over from the breakfasts, they would package them up and offered them for us to take for later. We will gladly return for a stay, when we are in the area again.

Wonderful stay at the Bellaire B&B

5 on August 27, 2018

This B&B is in a 100 yr old home that has been updated and restored and is immaculate. Breakfasts were great. We stayed with two couples who were returning to the B&B because they liked it so much.

Great Time - Once Again

We have stayed there many times now and we have never been the least bit disappointed. David and Jim (along with the canine welcoming party) always provide the best of everything. You can not go wrong staying here!
