We were lucky enough to receive a Lake to Lake gift certificate and chose to redeem it at the Bellaire Bed and Breakfast. This was the most fabulous weekend get away I have ever had the privilege of experiencing!
While there are great adventures abounding right outside the door in the delightful town of Bellaire – you won’t want to leave the luxurious comfort and hospitality Jim and Dave have created in their bed and breakfast. We couldn’t stop marveling at all the careful details and thoughtful amenities that seemed never ending.
DO NOT MISS BREAKFAST – amazing, delicious and if I could find a way to sneak out those recipes I would – Baked Oatmeal, Tollhouse Scones, Raspberry Danish, Banana Bread, delicious house blend coffee, cherry juice, etc..!! We also had the chance to join our hosts during their “Manager’s Hour” for a little conversation and treats including a whitefish pate I’ll be dreaming about for a while!!
We stayed in the Brighton Room in the carriage house and it was so perfect I almost hate to spread the word for fear it won’t be available!! King sized brass bed, oversized claw-foot tub (with an assortment of bubble baths), overstuffed chairs, fireplace, softest throw blankets, dvd player, books and all gorgeously appointed and squeeky clean!! A quick jaunt downstairs to a common living room afforded more books, games, newspapers, snacks, sodas, glass and plateware – anything you could think of!
And did I mention homebaked, hot-out-of-the-oven cookies and turn-down service?!?!
You absolutely MUST stay at the Bellaire Bed and Breakfast! There’s only one part of the experience that, like me, you probably won’t enjoy — and that’s having to come home.
