About Seth Thayer
We have been renovating and renting out properties since 2007 with Homeaway. This is our third and finest short-term rental property. We obsessed about the Ocean House for years before purchasing her and doing the redesign. We designed the changes ourselves and did a lot of the grunt work in renovating the building. It took us six months to build out this apartment, which we also designed, build and furnished ourselves. Greg is an architectural designer and Seth is a private curator, specializing in American art of the 18th and 19th centuries. Some of their art collection fills the wall of the Ocean House. We love the Ocean House and hope you do too!
Why Seth Thayer chose Belfast
The Ocean House is something special in the heart of downtown Belfast Maine. Prominently situated at the intersection of Main, Cross, and Federal Streets, The Ocean House was built as a hotel in 1865 and survived at least one of the fires that destroyed most of the downtown. We gutted her down to the studs and rebuilt. We carved out this wonderful, HUGE apartment in the upper two floors and took advantage of our sight lines so that there is something interesting to look at out of each of the 18 windows. 360 degree views of downtown Belfast and the harbor Come stay in our beautiful building with views to Castine and beyond! And also with views of Belfast's industrial past!
