The Grand Victorian B&B
Ranked #3 of 4 Bellaire B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Ken and Linda were the best hosts imaginable! My wife and I stayed for our honeymoon for 3 evenings in the "Queen Anne" room and it was an awesome stay! The house is amazing and the history of it is fascinating to anyone that enjoys history. The breakfast was a delight each morning and something we looked forward to each day. Nice small town location and close to tourist destinations without the traffic and congestion of Traverse City which is about 45 minutes away. Highly recommended!!!

My wife and I received a gift card for a bed and breakfast as a thank you from our daughter. After much research we elected to stay at the Grand Victorian (GV) Bed & Breakfast in Bellaire, Michigan. If we stay at any other B&B I'm sure the other B&B will be compared to Grand Victorian, and the other one will come up wanting.

Our hostess, Linda greeted us like favored family members and showed us around GV and described each room. Our room had a nice private balcony porch, and fresh cookies awaited us on our bed.
We ate dinner at Short's Brewery in town and used the GV discounted mugs there for our beverages (I like Bellaire Brown).

I am an early riser so I was greeted by fresh coffee and newspaper in the hall near our bedroom. Coffee on the porch is a great way to wake up.

Breakfast is served at 0900. When we came into the dining room the table was set with the first course of fresh fruit with a double chocolate w/cherries muffin on the side.
Breakfast then included eggs, french toast, and baked bacon (not at all greasy like I usually cook it).

While we ate, our host, Ken gave a presentation about the origins of the house and town. This really brought the house "alive". The house, built in 1895 had electric lights originally installed.

Unfortunately a back issue kept me from exploring the town on foot. Perhaps another time.
My wife has already recommended Grand Victorian to a number of her friends. I don't think they will be disappointed.

Hi. We're glad you feel spoiled (although we like to refer to it as pampered). It's uplifting and encouraging to our staff to hear such positive comments. Once your back feels better we hope you'll return and try the things you missed out on during this visit - there's a lot to do in this quaint little town! Best regards.

We stayed at Grand Victorian Inn as part of our vacation. What a phenomenal place to stay. If you are looking for a little romance or just a cozy place to stay, this one is terrific. The Inn is incredibly cozy and comfortable. The main floor features 3 rooms that all filled with a different type of wood- chestnut, pine (real heartwood pine) and Bird's-eye maple.

Our room was fantastic. Cleanliness is crucial, and our room exceeded our expectations. This was a great place to relax and connect. There are plenty of places to relax- from the large wrap around porch to the gazebo to the sitting rooms in the home.

My husband and I have stayed at the Grand Victorian on three seperate occasions. We always feel like we are coming home to family when we stay here. Everything is superb; from the breakfasts to the hospitality, to the beauty of the Inn itself. If you are going anywhere in Northern Michigan, don't stay anywhere else. We always take day trip to Mackinac Island, Charlevoix, Traverse City, etc but always stay at the Grand Victorian. There is simply nowhere I would rather stay.

Wow! Thank you for the great comments! Having happy guests return again and again is our highest priority. Just like you discovered, more and more northern Michigan travelers are finding Bellaire a great place to stay. You can make short day trips to the most popular tourist spots like the Sand Dunes, Wine Country, Mackinac island, or just hang out at Torch Lake and then come 'home' and walk to fine dining or the local brew-pub. We are so glad you have found the Grand Victorian to be the perfect place to unwind and enjoy northern Michigan at it's best!

My daughters and I have had a tradition of staying at a B&B each year for the last 8 years and this beautiful victorian home was our favorite! This home was just the place to relax and relish in its charm and elegance. We just loved our spacious room, The Blossom Room! Our hosts were so friendly, helpful and truly looked after our every need. We loved the little towns and shops and the close proximity to upper Michigan desitinations. We would definitely come again and highly recommend this to anyone wanting a special get-away.

Ken & Linda are really good at their craft as owners/hosts of the Grand Victorian B&B. They made us feel very special as we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary! Ken & Linda are very knowledgable about what activities to do, restaurants to dine at, and the history of their beautiful property. We thoroughly enjoyed the gourmet breakfasts and other "goodies," as well. It may have been our best B&B experience to date, and so we highly recommend the Grand Victorian.

This is such an adorable bed and breakfast place. We felt spoiled by the richly appointed room and the amazing breakfasts. The innkeepers gave us some great suggestions for local restaurants as well. We also enjoyed hearing about the history of the house.
