Property description

Plan your 'stay-cation' in our lovely historic home, where guests can enjoy the entire house, kitchen included, and truly experience the joy of living in coastal Maine. Rental of the full house gives you access to all 6 guest rooms (each with private bath), the small but efficient kitchen, and the lovely deck with view of Belfast Harbor and beyond to Penobscot Bay.

Planning a family reunion? A 40th (or 50th or 60th - well you get the idea!) birthday celebration with friends? Getting married in Maine and want a place where the family can stay together for the special event? Traveling with good friends and wanting to just relax in Maine, sipping wine as you look at the harbor and sample the lobster, crab and other local delicacies? All of these are GREAT reasons to make Harbor View House your 'own home' in Maine for your stay!Home accommodates 12 people - great for large groups!

Traveling alone or with one or two good friends or a child, but still seeking a home to call your own as you explore Maine? Our Efficiency apartment provides an open, loft-style home, with full-kitchen and private deck (with harbor view of course!) that you can call your own by the week or by the month. Accommodates up to 4 people. See rates for details.

What better way to experience the bounty of Maine than in your own harbor view home! Bring back fresh foods from the local Farmers' Markets or the lobster pound and enjoy them - and the view of Belfast harbor - in the comfort of 'your own home'.

The house has 6 bedrooms, each with private bath and fireplace, most with harbor views. The large living area amenities include a fireplace, wing-backed chair, rocker, and couches for conversation and games. Fulldinding room with seating for 12 allows your inner chef to provide great formal meals. But the informal family room-kitchen and spacious deck allow for the more typical Maine meal - lobster while overlooking the harbor! Table and chairs for family dining and playing games are provided. Cable/TV, stereo and a DVD player are also available.

Full galley kitchen with dishwasher adjoins the family room to provide conversational seating - great when groups gather to prepare special meals! A full-sized refrigerator and stove, microwave and coffee-maker are provided. Dishes, pots, pans, utensils, and small appliances (blender, toaster) are also provided for your use as well as some basic 'starter' staples. Yes, there is a lobster pot!!

The Efficiency Apartment has a queen-bed in open-style bedroom, queen-sized sleeper sofa, full kitchen (no dishwasher) and private deck with view of Belfast Harbor. Gas fireplace in open living space and TV, DVD and stereo provide cozy ambience.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Trish, Mary Ellen and Ron have been innkeepers at Harbor View House of 1807 Bed and Breakfast since 2000. Because of family illness, we cannot run this beautiful home as a bed and breakfast. But the pleasure of meeting and sharing with our guests has led us to open up the house for guests who require longer stays or more room for a family. Moving to Maine from San Francisco, California has been a wonderful change of place. Innkeeping has been a wonderful change of pace!

Why the Owner Chose Belfast:
Mid-coast Maine offers the unique opportunity of being equally accessible to many of the state's favorite spots. Whether sailing or hiking in Acadia National Park is your goal, or antiquing and shopping at the famous L.L. Bean and outlets of Freeport is more your style, each is equally achievable from Belfast. Best of all, Belfast itself is a unique community that offers art, theater, and beautiful nature options (hiking trails less than a quarter mile away) - all without the kitsch and hustle-bustle of some other Maine locations. Summer's Friday night Art Walks open the galleries to all - with food and music as well! Moose Point State park, less than 4 miles away, provides a delightful local nature scene! Swim at nearby Swan Lake ('where the sane people go to swim!').

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our lovely, historic home is within two blocks of downtown, providing easy access to shops, art galleries and restaurants. Local boating opportunities are available, as are the Belfast City Park with pool, bayside picnic areas, and tennis. But you can also walk to the farmer's market, get some fresh blueberries, breads and flowers, and bring them back for breakfast al fresco on your own deck, watching the sun rise over the harbor and distant bay, with Blue Hill in the distance. And the house itself is a treasure - 200+ years old, you can enjoy the graciousness of large rooms, with wide-planked pumpkin pine floors that are original to the house. The loft-style Efficiency apartment is more open and modern in style and provides a great escape for 2-4 people. Attached to the house, but with a separate entrance and deck, it affords the same easy access to town and area sites.
