Why Karen Block chose Bellaire

My husband Greg and I purchased this cottage in 2007 because we love Lake Bellaire and surrounding area with the lake, golf, and winter time sports! We enjoy the outdoors and spending time on the lake with family and friends.

Beautiful cottage for summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation staying in this cottage on Lake Bellaire. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. The cottage was beautifully furnished and very clean. It is on a shared property of six cottages. We had a great view of the lake from our cottage and we enjoyed getting to know the owners and renters of the other cottages. Lake Bellaire is a beautiful lake for boating and swimming.
