About the property

About Liz

I love hiking/biking, spending time with friends and family, love the outdoors and quaint places.

Liz purchased this house in 2013

Why Liz chose MidCoast and Penobscot Bay

Maine is one of the prettiest places on earth, and Belfast is a picture perfect town.

What makes this house unique

This house has the convenience of being a newer property while located in the charm of an older, quiet neighborhood. Harbor St Cottage has the added benefit of quiet and privacy, but with convenient walking distance to downtown, City Park and the Harbor Walk. Enjoy the local festivals and concerts, and then walk back to the cottage for a quiet retreat. 3 blocks from the shore permits a wonderful walk all the way to town at low tide. City park is 4 blocks in the opposite direction for swimming, tennis, basketball, and picnic tables and shelter. The cottage yard is big and mostly flat, so kids can play outside while adults relax on the private deck or the spacious yard. The interior is open, carpeted, sunny and cheerful and has water views. A great house for adults and kids alike! With a large bedroom and full bath on the main level this house can accompany 3 generations comfortably, or 3 couples with children, or any group of 9 adults. Great for families, girls getaways, or couples. There is much to do within walking distance. and Jack's Grocery is ONE block distance from the cottage - very convenient for a quick dash when you forgot that ONE thing at the store, or for a quick sandwich or slice of pizza! Walk to bike rental store and bike the Passy Rail Trail!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was exactly as she described. It was clean and lovely, cozy and safe...and right near the downtown, that we could walk there! Liz was super sweet and responsive when we had questions. We had a great time in Belfast, and would definitely stay with Liz again! ”

Ideal cottage in cute town!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay for our two week visit to Maine! Liz's house was the perfect size and location for us and our dog on our recent trip to Belfast. We could easily walk to the main street of downtown, local stores, the cute neighborhoods, and to the waterfront park. Belfast itself was such a nice place...a terrific selection of restaurants to choose from, we rented bikes a few days, loved the new United Farmer's Market on saturday mornings (walking distance as well from cottage!), and so enjoyed the local co-op and shops...and that was all just in Belfast. So much to do on day drives from there as well! We hit Maine during a heat wave, but Liz's place was still comfortable as she has screens on the windows and provided fans, that along with the breeze from the water, we never minded it, and of course with it being Maine, it cooled down in no time! Liz was always very responsive to any questions we had, her place was well stocked, cute, and clean! We will definitely be returning next year!!

Charming and spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three weeks at this charming, open-space cottage. Upstairs bedrooms were very spacious and perfect for family. The house is very nicely decorated, we especially enjoyed the artwork featuring Belfast. Since we stayed three weeks the new LG washing machine and dryer were greatly appreciated. We would definitely make this our "summer home" again.

Quiet Belfast neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

This was a really nice house in quiet Belfast neighborhood. Was here for family reunion with other families at larger homes all week, day tripping each day so we didn't spend a lot of time at the house. House was very clean and well maintained,, all the essentials were there, and beds were comfy. We live in a cluttered 1800's home and were looking for something modern and spacious - which this is. We loved the light and airy colors and peaceful, minimalist décor. Liz provided a very helpful notebook of maps, things to do, and area info. The property manager came by first day to make sure we had enough propane for the gas grill. We did hit one of those rare hot & humid weeks and it would have been nice, even though fans were provided, if all the bedroom windows had screens so they could open for cross ventilation.

All in all, I would definitely recommend to others looking for a quiet escape - Belfast is a great summer town with all the things you want without all the traffic or too many tourists. And best bakery that you can't find... Moonbat City Bakery... open Thurs-Sun 7a-1p... on Main Street 2 blocks up the hill from the traffic light... there were a lot of people wandering around downtown Sun morning looking for an open coffee shop!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments about the cottage and also the charming town. Belfast is a great vacation place! For the information of future guests, the large windows in each bedroom do have screens, but we'll get those smaller windows screened as well!! Thanks again!!
