About Lisa or Alex
Originally from England, Alex and I moved to Belfast Maine after driving all the way around the world in a campervan looking for the perfect place to live. It took us 5 years to drive around the globe but only 2 visits to choose Belfast as our next home. Both avid cooks, eaters and wine drinkers we live in our kitchen which we designed ourselves, much like the rest of our home, and love to shop locally for great ingredients to feed to our friends and family. We grow a small amount of veg in our raised beds but are still novices in this area after life on the road for so long. I run a small cooking blog and we still love to travel extensively, hence us sharing our amazing home with you.
Lisa or Alex purchased this House in 2015
Why Lisa or Alex chose Belfast
We fell instantly in love with the sunlight in this house. Originally built in 1906 the south facing property had been renovated in the 80's and its suspended ceilings, humongous stone chimney and gingerbread cottage style kitchen didn't deter us one bit. We could feel the potential in it the second we set foot inside and could feel the love that had always been present in the home so much so that we remain great friends with the family that owned it. We completely modernized the house adding radiant heat, replacing the roof, horsehair plaster, electrics, insulation and windows. We have installed high-end bathrooms, furnishings and light-fittings that we adore and we absolutely love to live in this stunning, sunlit home. We think you will love it too.
What makes this House unique
The views from the house are simply breathtaking and impossibly calming. The light as it changes throughout the day is mesmerizing and as the sun sets the warm glow illuminates the original wood floors and absolutely restores your soul. The porch is a great spot to enjoy the peace and tranquility and to watch the birds in the huge pine trees that made us name the home, The Spears. The biggest tree out front is a perfect climber and the one that you can see from the kitchen window has a tire swing, lovingly broken in by our nephews. The wildflower meadow offers a constant supply of cut fresh flowers and a home for the bees which keep our veg plot healthy. If you are here when a glut of veg are available please help yourselves in exchange for doing a spot of watering during your stay. Another unique benefit of our home is that it comes with a house cat named 'BR'. She is low maintenance but will ask for the occasional stroke and may pester you to throw her a ball every now and then. She spends most of her days outside watching the birds and is probably the cutest addition to your stay.

The house is in a beautiful setting with outdoor fire pit and a perfect porch to relax on. It is located so close to Belfast and Searsport but away from the high traffic area. It was well equipped for 9 of us to stay. I highly recommend this property.
An amazing home in a beautiful setting! The design and style is top notch. Comfy beds, plush towels, fully stocked kitchen. Incredible yard for kids of all ages and the perfect porch for adults to watch them. Great location...close to town and the water but secluded from the hustle bustle. Communication with the host was incredibly easy. They made us feel very welcomed. You won’t regret booking this house for your Maine getaway stay!
Another great stay at this beautiful home.
We booked this home again a month after returning last year-perfect for our family of 6. The open plan, bright kitchen, big tv couch, very comfortable beds, window seat and breezy porch are just some of the reasons we hope to return next year. The owners are incredibly responsive, generous and friendly. We had friends and family visit us-and they stayed at the Belfast Harbor Inn which is almost across the street (though well out of view due to this house’s situation on a hill far back from the road). Belfast is the perfect mix of real working town and pretty vacation spot-and if you want to stay in a home with lots of space and privacy, but only five minutes from downtown, this is it.
Beautiful home and location in Belfast, ME
We had 3 generations of family staying with us for a long weekend and found the home to be exceptionally clean, well-kept, beautifully appointed and comfortable in all of its spaces-- both inside and out. I would highly recommend for a comfortable and peaceful stay.
Great spot for our family vacation.
Our family of six (2 adults and four kids 7-11) had plenty of room to spread out in this very comfortable and inviting home. Beds were wonderful, kitchen and living area perfect. Perfect for kids who love playing outside -and great visibility for supervising kids playing outside from kitchen and living area. My only regret is that I didn’t spend more time on the porch enjoying the breezes and surveying the view!
luxurious, welcoming and great food!
the welcome, food, property and owners were genuinely outstanding. Welcoming our family on the veranda as we drove up to the house - we were quite late - 1st thing was a glass of wine! perfect. the house is spotless, the kids loved the gardens and the woods. we loved the relaxed atmosphere and fire pit - that's great as the sun goes down. we will 100% return, it was like staying with family.
Belfast is a historic city with lots of independent amenities from the local co-op to a specialist cheese and wine shop and famous local vegetarian restaurant Chases Daily. Other great stores such as the all year round Christmas shop and the board game shop offer unique shopping opportunities, not to mention the numerous restaurants and places to stop for ice-cream.
Belfast is a fully functioning marina with a daily schooner tour in summer and a local lobster pound which pulls in lobster as you dine. Camden and Lincolnville are short car rides away and a day trip to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are highly recommended.
There is so much to see and do in the area that we have an extensive manual in the house which can help you plan your stay.
