Bellaire, MI is located approximately 25 miles northeast of Traverse City. This quaint Northern Michigan village may be small in stature, but it is large in arts, culture, and activities. Located in the heart of Northern Michigan's water wonderland, Bellaire is just a stone's throw from the world famous Torch Lake, Intermediate Lake, Clam Lake, and of course, Lake Bellaire. All of these amazing bodies of water are linked together with a series of waterways, making this stretch truly a boater's paradise. But, things don't slow down when the weather cools off. Home to Shanty Creek Resorts, one of Northern Michigan's premiere skiing destinations, Bellaire stays busy with lots of great things to do all year long.
After a day of fun in the sun or on the slopes, Bellaire offers lots of great options for those looking to enjoy some food and drinks. Short's Brewing Company, routinely named to just about everyone's Best Breweries in Michigan lists, is headquartered right downtown. This large brewhouse offers amazing food, awesome live entertainment most nights, and of course, outstanding beer. Also, don't miss out on Bellaire's emerging art and antiques scene, a movement that gains more and more traction each year.
Bellaire is a fantastic spot to call home, whether it is a full time residence, a vacation home or a condo on the ski slope.
