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 have never been to a Bed and Breakfast before but I could not have asked for a better experience. The check-in/check-out process was simple and the inn keepers were so accommodating, especially for breakfast. Excellent!

Hospitality every moment! We were pleased to get our room early so we could get to Torch lake. Outstanding breakfast; the porches were cozy and inviting; even a gift for my husband's birthday.

"We shall return" are always our parting words when we leave the BellaireB&b because we keep coming back. Lovely accommodations, gourmet breakfasts, special touches like fresh cookies each day in your room, wine hour before heading off for dinner, and so much to do in the area. We love it! Tom and Mary
