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!

Evening getaway

5 on October 26, 2016

We were in Central Lake closing out cabin and needed a place to stay. My husband booked a night at Bellaire Bed and Breakfast. We loved our hosts they really made you feel at home. Everything was perfect. I felt a little spoiled. Beautiful room exceptionally clean with a lot of little touches. Loved the location to downtown. I would stay again!

Fabulous stay at Bellaire B&B

From the friendly greeting upon arrival to the luscious chocolates provided at check out, this was a wonderful stay in a beautiful home. Breakfast was outstanding and we loved the leftovers that were sent with us on our day trips.

Weekend at Bellaire B&B

5 on October 19, 2016

It's hard to say what is the best thing about the Bellaire B&B. The food, the accommodations, the hospitality, the impeccable rooms, or the fellow guests. All are outstanding. But generally overlooked in the criteria established for B&B's are the fellow guests. An excellent B&B such as the Bellaire B&B attracts the most pleasant of guests which makes the stay even more fabulous. Jim and Dave are complementary hosts who embody the old adage that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole.

We stayed for our second time and celebrated an anniversary. We are always so impressed with the attention to detail. Breakfast is wonderful and the rooms are beautiful.

Nicest Bed and Breakfast I've Visited

5 on October 17, 2016

Loved this place! Beautiful house and grounds, yummy breakfast, cocktail hour, homemade cookies on the nightstand, and bottle of champagne for our anniversary..... and right in the cute little town of Bellaire. Perfect.

Tranquility up North

5 on October 10, 2016

One of the most beautiful B & B's I've ever stayed at. Jim and David are exceptional Innkeepers. The landscaping is amazing and the porches are relaxing and peaceful. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. Highly recommend a stay at the Bellaire House.

Cannot beat Dave and Jim's hospitality

4.6 on October 09, 2016

Over the years we've stayed at many B&B's, but since we found this one, we won't stay at any other when we are up north. It's in the perfect location, the rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. They have a cocktail hour, but the best part is the wonderful breakfast. They are very accommodating to special dietary needs.

Always an excellent stay

Once again, Bellaire Bed & Breakfast exceeded our expectations! Thank you Dave and Jim for another wonderful anniversary weekend!

A wonderful relaxing stay

5 on September 26, 2016

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.
