Northern Michigan seemingly has more than its share of small, charming towns and the Village of Bellaire ranks highly among them. The Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast, built more than 125 years ago, is a Bellaire landmark. The property offers six rooms for nightly bookings.
The Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast is also known as the Richardi House because Henry Richardi built the Queen Anne Victorian-style home in 1895.
The property lives up to the “Victorian” advertising inside, taking guests back to another period in history.
The quiet neighborhood surrounding the Grand Victorian contributes to the peaceful nature of the accommodations.
As the holiday lights illustrate, the look of the historic house changes by the season.
The Grand Victorian has been operating as a bed and breakfast since 1895.
The elegant porches are part of the Grand Victorian’s attraction.
The Grand Victorian blends nicely into the Village of Bellaire, which is populated by about 1,200 residents.
When not relaxing at the Grand Victorian, you can explore Bellaire’s classic downtown setting that’s only a few blocks from the property.
Jake and Leeann Chamberlain and their three children introduced themselves as the Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast’s new owners in a Jan. 31, 2022, Facebook post, expressing pride in the “iconic home, full of history, beauty, and so many memories.” Bellaire is 37 miles northeast of Traverse City. Torch Lake is 10 miles away and water activities are a big part of summer life in Bellaire, while snowmobiling and skiing are popular in the winter. For more information about visiting the town, see the Bellaire Chamber of Commerce website.
