Plan Your Trip
Discover the village of Bellaire, surrounded by glacier-carved hills and steep valleys. It is centrally located on the chain of lakes, connecting 75 miles of waterway. Several of the larger ones, like Torch Lake and Elk Lake are considered among the most beautiful in the world, and the region has long been a favorite destination for boats and fisherman.
After a day on the trail or out on the boat, feast at a variety of family friendly restaurants and unique lounges; grab a glass of locally produced beer, mead or wine; or visit area farm markets and u-picks to take home a taste Northern Michigan. The peaceful Intermediate River runs through downtown Bellaire, with unique shops and a state-of-the-art movie theater. Stay at one of the numerous cottages, resorts, Bed & Breakfasts, campgrounds, and Motels to retreat to after a full day of exploring the area.
