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!

Tipsey Tuesday's Tip....with the Coronavirus changing our lives, I'm trying to just keep working away on my SG, Studio Garage,  I'm working on this tall boy dresser...Terry, aka Stock Boy, fixed the drawers so they slide properly and I've decided to leave the top as is & paint the rest Vintage White by Hannah Bella Paints!  I will need a second coat...but am nearly finished!

As we try to navigate through these changing times,  I will be posting pictures of furniture & items in the store that are available for purchase.  Payment by phone, curbside pickups or deliveries locally or pickup when we return to our normal hours.  For measurements & prices on items call will be nice to talk since I won't be seeing any of you at the store for awhile!

Stay safe & healthy...happy Tuesday everyone♡♡♡ #destinationbellaire #shoplocal #experiencebellaire #localbellaire #downtownbellaire #shopbellaire #bellairemichigan #experiencebellairemi #tipseytuesday #tuesday #tips #techniques #tricks #hannahbellapaint @hannahbellapaints #vintagewhite #dresser #vintage #tallboy #coronavirus #phonepay #curbsidepickup #delivery #studiogarage #stockboy @terryakastockboy #stayhealthy

Terrain Restaurant

We are deeply thankful for all who came out and supported us in our takeout endeavor last week. 
Unfortunately, we have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily close down all operations at the restaurant for the immediate future. This decision, while painful, is the best for our family and our community. Bellaire is our home, and we have loved feeding everyone and the bonds that we have made this last year are unbreakable.

We look forward to seeing you all on the other side of this. 
Stay strong, stay safe, stay healthy – we are all in this together!

If you are looking for ways to support small restaurants like ours, now is the time to contact your representatives. This is not a crisis that takeout or gift cards will solve. Without real action, the restaurant industry will not recover. It could be years before the wreckage is salvaged and the small businesses and the people they employ are back on their feet. 
The attached template letter is successfully being used in the current communications in the Senate. Take a moment to use it, contact your state and local representatives. Small towns like ours run on small businesses, far more than metropolitan areas, and the potential domino effect of the pandemic will touch all of us.

Escape to the Mediterranean with the tart and slightly fruity flavors of Sumac! This spice pairs perfectly with veggies, hummus, bread, fish and ground meats. 😋
