About Dennis Kelleher
My wife and I purchased this beautiful home several years ago, and look forward to spending a great deal of our retirement years here. We hope our guests enjoy our home as well as the town of Belfast and the surrounding areas as much as we do! Dennis and Kerry
Dennis Kelleher purchased this House in 2007
Why Dennis Kelleher chose Belfast
The property is set up nicely for either one couple to enjoy or up to six guests. The large deck, which several Adirondack chairs that face the harbor make it for a very relaxing time. The house has been decorated by award winning interior designer Janis Stone.
What makes this House unique
The house is located near the footbridge, which provides access to the Main Street and the Belfast water front. The short walk over the footbridge provides spectacular views of the harbor. On the west side of the footbridge, the new rail to trail providers walkers, runners, bike riders a peaceful venue to enjoy views of the harbor as well. Belfast is located very close to the towns of Camden, Northport, Lincolnville, Searsport. There is a beautiful maritime museum in Searsport. Moosepoint State Park is a 3 minute drive to the north, and Fort Know and the Penobscot Observatory is a 15 minute drive to the north. The town has such a quaint feel to it. There are several restaurants to visit, some on the waterfront and a few on Main Street. All very casual and perfect for a couple or families. We have a good collection of books and movies for our guests to enjoy during their down time.

Rented this property off season in November and December to provide medical services in the Belfast area. Great place to come home and relax after a day of toil--wish I had had more time and better weather to partake of the class A view of the Harbor from upper and lower decks and to make use of the footbridge to easily access all of the restaurants and attractions of Belfast across the Bay---I'm sure during peak season that this, also, would be my choice of homes to rent----close enough to hit all the attractions across the Bay but with no crowds teaming around the premises. Owners very accessible by phone, if needed, and local friends of owner responsive to any needs. Thanks Dennis!

Great stay in Belfast!
Our stay at the cottage in Belfast was great! It was the ideal location to stay to explore coastal Maine. The footbridge into Belfast made it very easy to walk into town each day to explore as well. The cottage had all of the amenities needed for our stay. We spent many mornings and evenings on the porch enjoying the view. I would highly recommend this cottage.
Thanks for your kind words about our cottage. We are so happy you enjoyed your time in Belfast. It is such a special place, and still undiscovered by many.

Home Away From Home
My friends and I had the good fortune to stay for 2 weeks in August at Dennis and Kerry's very sweet cottage in Belfast. Having stayed in many VRBO type accommodations, I must say theirs was at the top. Any question we had Dennis was available very quickly to answer. The amenities they provided was beyond what is usually found on arrival. We enjoyed many hours sitting on the deck. The view is just great and so relaxing. Walking across the footbridge was a daily activity we loved, not to mention the great exercise benefit. All to say thank you very much to the Kellehers.

Prime location and cozy home! Very attentive owners.
We loved our stay here and hope to return. Such attention to detail and cleanliness… right down to chilled water bottles in the fridge! We were so close to town, enjoyed the walking bridge and trails, and even got to experience fireworks while sitting on the deck during the Maine Celtic Festival. We have stayed in a number of private lodgings and would highly recommend this location to everyone❤. You simply can't beat the convenience and charm. And the deck…wow! We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner with a view of beautiful Belfast. One week is simply not enough.
Thanks Donna! We are so glad that you and your family enjoy your stay. The town of Belfast and the surrounding area is the perfect place to enjoy the summer. We strive to make our home the perfect home for all of our guests. It is such a pleasure to have terrific guests like you!

Wonderful find in our favorite Maine town!
An absolutely beautiful property that exceeded our expectations. We've vacationed near Belfast Maine for several years, but this was the first rental at this cottage. It is immaculate and delightfully decorated. Air conditioning was a great plus, especially during this extended hot spell we've been having in the northeast. The view was wonderful, and a few steps away was the footbridge which we had never walked over during our vacation stays elsewhere.
Belfast is a great town with a great vibe. People are friendly, stores are interesting, restaurants offer variety, and since it's not right on route 1, it's a bit quieter with a hometown feel without the hustle and bustle of towns such as Camden and Rockland. They are wonderful too, but it's great to get "home" to Belfast after a day trip to other places in midcoast Maine.We like to shop in Hannaford and also in the Belfast Coop.
At the location of the former Weathervane restaurant which was closed last year, we were pleased to see the Nautilus, formerly a bit further north on route 1. So glad to see this great spot occupied with a very nice restaurant! We also really like dining on the deck at Dockside; enjoying creative vegetarian food at Chase's Daily; and the delicious lobster pad thai at Seng Thai!
Dennis was completely responsive to any questions we had. Can't wait to come back next year!
We are so grateful that you and your family had such a terrific time in Belfast. It is especially nice to have great guests like yourselves enjoy our quaint cape cod cottage. We hope to see you again next summer!
