About the Property

5+ Bedrooms, 5 bathrooms. Sleeps 12 (2 bed, 1.5 bath cottage is extra)

Built in 1800 as a ship builder's home on 8 acres, this home boasts two wood stoves, a fully remodeled and equipped kitchen, a large jacuzzi tub with flat screen TV in master bath. There are lovely views of the grounds, hills and water from the entire back and side of the home. Perfect home for families. Large windows in the master bedroom make it easy to spot bald eagles and gaze at the water for hours! This house, on the edge of town has plenty of space to walk , hike or bike. The new walking/biking trail which goes into the town center is right at your doorstep. It is also directly across from a nature preserve with walking trails. A private pier on our waterfront allows for wonderful salt water dips on warm afternoons and is great for nature watching.


Secluded yet located in town: A large deck spans the rear of the home and connects with a screened in porch. A private pool on the property is just what is needed for cooling off in the summertime. Private ~yet in-town ~ you can walk to anything in this lovely quaint city. Within a few blocks, you can dine at several wonderful cafes / bakeries and restaurants, grab an ice cream, shop, visit galleries, take in a movie at the local theatre, or watch the action at the town dock. A town park offers free tennis courts, wonderful playground, a pool, and a beach.


Waterfront activities: Fishing poles, lifejackets, kayaks on site & ready to go! Very safe boating since the house is located on the inner harbor. Take a boat up into the river or downtown for a refreshment. We have a resident pair of Loons which you can watch as they catch their meals. Eagles and Ospray soar above, competing for fish. Even an occasional seal will pop up.

and more.: Picnic on the dock, fields or the gazeebo. Take a nap in the bunkhouse overlooking the water. Check out the pear, apple and peach trees located on the property. Identify the bird calls. There is something for everyone.

New to Belfast is the walking/biking trail located right at the edge of the property. The path takes you north, away from town along the water or south along the water right into Belfast center. The convenience of your own path along the water taking you into town is fascinating.

New to the property, located about 100 yards to the north of the main house is also a 1 bedroom plus loft, 1.5 bath cottage overlooking the water on the north end of Riverbend. If you have extra company or your family needs more space, this is the place for you. You will never forget your stay at the Riverbend Estate.

We love it here. Belfast is in the midcoast area of Maine on the lovely Penobscot Bay (some of the world's best sailing) between Camden and Bar Harbor. A haven for artists - Galleries Galore! Winery, hiking, bike trails, and too numerous to count activities...We are right on the bay. Walk down the hill to our deep water dock and take an evening dip(our summer evening ritual) or ride bikes/ walk to the town park . Downtown is just a few blocks away - Historic Belfast offers quaint restaurants, shops, a movie theatre and pubs and a new world class marina. Enjoy life in a slow paced, quiet coastal town and be part of a truly lovely community. Fish, swim, kayak, paddle board, right off the private dock in protected waters.
