Fish, swim, and enjoy Bellaire’s beautiful outdoor setting

Connecting over 75 miles of waterway, Bellaire’s main draw is, of course, the abundant lakes, rivers, and streams that provide a tranquil retreat for boaters, fishermen, and swimmers alike. It’s a nature lover’s paradise with many hiking, biking, and backpacking trails. As Jack Frost kisses the slopes, swimming and lounging on the beach give way to ice fishing and skiing, while shoppers rush home with treasures found in the unique shops around town. Whether you choose a waterfront property or a ski-in/ski-out Bellaire vacation rental, you’ll get a delightful taste of the coveted seclusion that small-town living provides.

Things to do

Bellaire inside and out

It’s easy to choose an outdoor activity in Bellaire’s steep valleys and glacier-carved hills. Torch Lake and Elk Lake are considered among the most beautiful bodies of water in the world, and are on the bucket lists of many adventurers, but this charming village is also home to Avalanche Bay, Michigan’s largest indoor waterpark. Propel yourself down one of the thrilling, enormous slides, or chill out in one of the hot tubs while the kids amuse themselves in the children’s area. You’ll find most vacation rentals in Bellaire on lakefront property and near the waterpark.

Activities

Communing with nature in Bellaire

After scoring a Bellaire vacation rental, exploring the great outdoors is essential. Hone your birdwatching skills on the trails along The Grass River Natural Area, channel your inner child on a bicycle excursion along the Glacial Hills Pathway, or kayak the Chain O’ Lakes. You can reel in a fish or two from Torch Lake or opt for beachcombing instead and invent a fish story for your friends back home. It’s okay; the fish won’t tell. Drift into winter on snowmobile trails, and indulge your thrill-seeking side on the ski slopes of Shanty Creek.

Weather

From sun to snow in Bellaire

The refreshing lakes and cool mountain air are both a welcome change for those escaping the scorching heat of summer. Bellaire is a soothing retreat from the end of May to the middle of September when temperatures are just warm enough that a dip in the lake is perfect, but not so hot that you can fry an egg on the pavement. Once the snowbirds head south for the winter, the snow sets in and the ski slopes are ripe for the picking. If you’re looking for a winter wonderland, book your Bellaire vacation rental from November to March.

Natural features

Bellaire’s flora and fauna

Bellaire’s central location on the Chain O’ Lakes means there are plenty of sandy beaches where you can swim or fish for Lake Trout, Northern Rock Bass, and Walleye. The Grass River Natural Area spans almost 1500 acres and offers wetlands perfect for birdwatching. Seven miles of hiking trails and boardwalk wind through a cedar swamp, sedge meadow, and upland forest where you might encounter indigenous wildlife like beaver and whitetail deer. In the Fall, take a scenic chairlift on Boyne Mountain when the hardwood forest’s trees are changing color. It’s a spectacular must-see show.
