Walk to the bay and take an evening dip (our summer evening ritual) or walk two blocks to the town park and swim in the free outdoor pool or play a game of tennis, enjoy the tremendous playground and beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to thank you for sharing your lovely home with us this summer. We were able to spend quality time with family - many of whom we have not seen for years. Your home was spacious, comfortable, and had everything we needed to feel perfectly at home from towels, linens, and blankets to the fully-equipped kitchen. It was a simple, short walk to everything and the daytrips were amazing. We visited Camden, Freeport, Bar Harbor and many other amazing little coastal towns.

Thank you for opening your home to us! We have memories to cherish for years to come and hope to return again in the very near future.

Perfect location to the waterfront and downtown

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our two large families. We easily could have invited more to join us. We are already planning our vacation for next summer and will be booking this house as soon as we have our dates. Short walk to downtown Belfast, two blocks from the water and park. I would recommend this property to fellow travelers.

Comfortable home, great location, friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

Clean,comfortable home; great location; friendly, accessible owners ... My colleagues and I were in Belfast the past two years for a week long educational session and needed accomodations and this place fit the bill perfectly. Hopefully we'll get to return this year and for several years to come! The Belfast area is beautiful with plenty of excellent dining option and fun things to do. I have nothing but good things to say about my time spent in this home and my ... Renn and Jon were fantastic to deal with.

Fabulous Time!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful time in Belfast. Your home was complete with everything we needed. Our children loved the park, pool, and basket swing. The tree house and trampoline were perfect for them. They spent hours chasing the bunny outside too! It was nice to be able to walk to the water and to dinner at night. We especially enjoyed being able to walk to the movie theater, ice cream shoppe and candy store. What a picturesque coastal town!

Amazing Town & Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

This home and location suited us perfectly. It was great for our kids and was within walking distance to everything that we wanted to do. We did do a day trip to Bar Harbor and one to Boothbay. I can say with all certainty that Belfast is a wonderful town and this house was fantastic. The kids loved the treehouse and the trampoline and the fact that they could walk to the park, water, movie theater and the local pizza parlor! We are counting on showing up again next year. Thank you so much!

Lovely house, had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this house - it was great.The owners were very friendly and helpful. We rented with another family - had plenty of room and the kids had a blast with the bunny, the trampoline, and the completely awesome tree house. It's very walkable. The pool at Belfast City Park was nice, the playground was great. The beach was very nice (but rocky). We also easily walked to Belfast, where we enjoyed pizza, ice cream and walking through the lovely little shops. We would totally recommend it to friends & family.
