Belfast apartment description

Maison Dufour is the perfect guest suite for one or two people traveling to Maine's rugged coast and desiring to stay close to downtown Belfast. Much of the furniture was crafted in the mid-1800s, some of which is directly from Civil War General Joshua Chamberlain's estate! Artwork from exceptional local artists fills the walls throughout the guest suite. The Victorian home was built in the late 1890s.

                          Belfast is on the beautiful rugged coast of Maine and a great location to have as your point of departure. Centrally located to the best stops on Maine's Midcoast, it's just one hour and 15 minutes from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor; half an hour from Camden/Rockport; 45 minutes from Rockland; an hour from Bangor International Airport; an hour from Augusta; and two hours from Portland. Belfast plays host to many festivals, mostly in the summer. There are more than 20 art venues in Belfast with Friday Art Walks on the final Friday of each month through October. Visitors also love Belfast for its architecture, eclectic shops, and bar/restaurants.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: My name is Charlie and I purchased this beautiful Victorian home in the summer of 2012. Whenever time and finances allowed, I spent the following year creating a second floor guest suite for travelers that I began renting in July of 2013. I'm originally from the Northeastern-most town in the U.S., Madawaska, ME. After living out of Maine for most of my adult life, I returned in 2001 and have never looked back. I'm a university professor and a photographic artist (my work is exhibited in art galleries and in the guest suite). I also host a weekly radio show featuring the music of Bob Dylan on community radio WERU, 89.9 FM.

                          Why the Owner Chose Belfast:
                          I've always loved older homes on the coast of Maine. They are stately and have so much character. You'll fall in love with Maison Dufour if you have an appreciation for history. You'll be super comfortable in Maison Dufour whether or not you have an appreciation for history!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Maison Dufour is located on a very quiet street and yet is located just a couple of short blocks from picturesque downtown Belfast.
