“Shangrila, on the coast of Maine.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2009

Judy and Ed KNOW what they are doing. With decades in the hospitality industry, it came as no surprise that not a single detail was overlooked in their gem, the Belfast Bay Inn, From an unassuming street front, we entered the lobby and were truly transported into an ethereal world of comfort and coziness. Our room, #203, was much more than we had ever imagined from the pictures we had viewed on-line, including a full kitchen (minus the oven, but who cooks on vacation anyway?). Each room in our suite was appointed in such a manner as to create a complete "vibe," and it was one that whispered, "relax, relax, relax." The in-room breakfasts were simply amazing, and it was wonderful to speak with both Judy and Ed during their morning visits with coffee in hand.

My wife and I both commented that we would love to own one of the suites as a secret get-away, but lacking that ability (money, and, well, it seems Judy and Ed are not selling), we plan on returning annually to enjoy the Inn, as well as the many shops around town. We are counting the days to our return!

Going to Maine? If so there's no better place to stay than the belfast Bay Inn. Right in the middle of this charming town with great parking just steps away from the landscaped courtyard`entrance..The Inn keepers, Ed` and judy couldn't have been more attentive, warm and professional . The suites are spacious, prestine, tastefully decorated and complete with every concievable amenity.The included breakfasts [served in the room] were delicious and Judy's presentation earned a 10+ in ou diary. A browse thru the gift shop is a must. We can't wait to return to the Inn and so will you if you try it... Chuck and `Fran

Like others who have posted reviews, we found this accommodation to be excellent in every respect. The hosts (Eddy & Judy) were genial and very helpful. The suite was large, extremely well appointed and marvellously comfortable. We hope to return and unhesitatingly recomend the Inn to other travellers

We travelled with our three infant girls and our nanny, and were a little nervous about how we would be received. The owners and hosts (Eddie and Judy) were exceptionally gracious and helpful in every way. Our rooms were luxurious, the beds heavenly, and the breakfasts sublime - everything freshly baked..They did every conceivable thing to make us feel at home and at rest...When we were getting ready to leave, Eddie presented each of our girls with an adorable little teddy bear - what a lovely farewell! This couple clearly loves what they do, and they are exceptional at it. We will definitely be back.

We had originally planned to stay in nearby Camden, but I am ever so glad we did not. Belfast Bay Inn was probably my favorite place I have ever stayed.
The innkeepers/owners, Judy and Eddie, were truly wonderful. As someone else mentioned, they were always available, yet allowed for plenty of privacy!
The suites are beautiful, very spacious and comfortable. The town is charming. I truly cannot wait to return!

When we saw that Judy and Ed Hemmingsen are the proprietors of the Belfast Bay Inn, we changed our reservations from another hotel. And we were not disappointed. It is so great that they are now working their hotel magic in Belfast. The Belfast Bay Inn is exquisite. Especially loved the Stearns & Foster mattress, which was such a treat, and made me never want to leave. The Midcoast location is so convenient too. We will never stay anywhere else!

One of the best small hotel experiences we've ever had thanks to Judy and Eddie, the owners and innkeepers of The Belfast Bay Inn, a relatively new boutique hotel.
As frequent travellers we soon became aware after our initial contact that they sure know how to practise excellence in every aspect of hospitality to satisfy and impress the discerning traveller in addition to offering a tastefully decorated environment and serving a delectable breakfast! We sure hope to return!
