You're Welcome in Bellaire

Water is the backdrop of life in Bellaire, the county seat. Swimming, boating, fishing and beach-combing are summer activities that give way in the fall to driving tours along some of Michigan’s most scenic back roads. In the winter, snowmobile trails, sledding spots and Shanty Creek’s ski slopes provide plenty of fun. Golf swings into action in the spring as the area heats up again. The Village’s 1,200 residents know how to throw a party. Each August the town has a fabulous Annual Rubber Ducky Festival downtown with food, arts, crafts, a parade and a Rubber Ducky Race. Other annual activities include September’s Harvest Festival & Scarecrow Extravaganza, a Holiday Gift Fair, Light Up The Night, 5k Run/Walk, Parade, Soup Cook-Off and much more. Check our site often to view upcoming events.

Get to know Bellaire by visiting our unique gift, clothing and art shops as well as great places to eat and drink, plus a traditional movie theater make Bellaire a day-into-evening destination. Bellaire has numerous accommodations including Award winning Bed & Breakfasts, Motels, Inns, Resorts, cabins as well as parks and campgrounds.

We look forward to your visit to Bellaire!

Pulsar has less than one gram of sugar in each serving, so you can enjoy this cider guilt-free all summer long. Pick some up at @shortsbrewing or a store near you!

Have you wondered about why we have a drink called the Nod to Bob? The Gerrity became a pretty popular drink around Bellaire after it was created at the original Lulus for one Mr Bob Gerrity (RIP). We knew we wanted to bring that drink back, but since we don’t  have an espresso machine, we had to get a little creative and come up with our own nod to the original. Meet, the Nod to Bob, made with Mundos cold brew, Spauldings coffee liqueur, baileys and a touch of cream. A large contingent of the Gerrity family was in tonight and ordered them in honor of their late patriarch, and we wanted to clue everyone else in to the story behind a delicious drink 😍

“Everybody needs beauty, as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and cheer, and give strength to the body, and soul alike.” ~ John Muir
Many years ago, my daughter @thetinbell and I had the pleasure of discovering #muirwoodsnationalpark  It was a fun, eye opening, and exhilarating experience to walk amongst the giant sequoias, and be surrounded by such beauty.  I have spent half of my lifetime enjoying the Bellaire/Central Lake area in a home that has served 3 generations.  The natural beauty here brings me a similar peace...and yes, even in winter!
The collaborative efforts of the team of creatives who busted their butts in the heat, as well as the beautiful souls that came to break bread, and glamp, helped put the above quote, and my vision to life in this photo shoot.  I couldn’t be more humbled and grateful. 🙏
My hope is to create a special space, where people can come and camp comfortably in the stillness of nature, embrace her beauty, and enjoy the bounty of the surrounding area. Allowing those who visit to be free from the stresses of everyday life.

[Beer Release] Today's #PrivateStache release is a barrel-aged stupid, sexy Flanders-style Sour Red Ale with Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir juice. Nothing At All leads with notes of oak barrel up front, followed by dark fruit, fig, and red wine. Not overly tart, this medium-bodied beer has some funk and acidity giving it complex flavors. Grab bottles of Nothing At All (7.8% ABV - 14 IBU - 8.5 TA) exclusively at Short's Mart this weekend!  shortsbrewing.com/nothingatall/
