A note from The Jeweled Turret Inn
Updated 05/09/20


#1 of 8 B&Bs / Inns in Belfast
Lovely Queen Anne Victorian bed & breakfast in the heart of Belfast's historic district on quiet side street, a block from Penobscot Bay. Stroll to historic Main Street shops, harbor, cafes, galleries, theaters, and parks. Named for the stain glass turret that encases the oak spiraling staircase. Lounge on one of our two columned verandas with wicker porch furniture, bistro sets and porch swing overlooking beautiful gardens and historic homes. Ornate woodwork, fireplaces, antiques, and Victorian decor add to the magic of The Jeweled Turret Inn. Seven romantic luxury guest chambers with A/C and fans, 4-poster, iron & brass beds, private baths with "English Spa" toiletries; some with turrets, fireplaces, whirlpools. Gourmet breakfasts, refreshments, evening crackers, cheese, sherry. Day trips to Acadia National Park, lighthouses, islands, breath-taking sailing cruises. "Smell the sea air; explore the beauty of coast and islands... visit the charms of historic Belfast, Maine!"

We stayed at The Jeweled Turret Inn celebrating our 40th anniversary. What a wonderful surprise it was!! The Inn is so beautiful and the room we stayed in was also beautiful. Our host were wonderful, caring, warm people and made our stay so pleasant. The breakfast were remarkable!!! Not only delicious but served at a pace where you could relax and enjoy them and the presentation was exquisite!!!! Every trip to Maine in the future I will be staying at The Jewelled Turret Inn!!!! Thank you Carl and Cathy!

We stayed in The Opal room, lovely Victorian décor to complement the architecture ,very comfortable bed, private bathroom with jacuzzi tub and shower. Breakfast included biscuits ,gorgeously displayed fruit , frittatas and herbed omlettes. The coffee was exceptional and we were not rushed at any time. My favorite part was the large front porch with rockers and porch swing, perfect place to enjoy that second cup of coffee. The owners Kathy and Carl were pleasant and helpful in leading us to the many lovely highlights of their quaint coastal village. No doubt about it we will be going back .

Although sort of "hidden" on Pearl St. just outside of downtown Belfast, this Inn is in a great spot for walking into town and exploring the shops, restaurants, etc. along Belfast's Main St. and waterfront. The best part of the overall location is that it's right at the top of Penobscot Bay... where some of the best seafood along the Maine coast can easily be found. Young's Lobster Pound is just a few minutes over the bridge, and there are several good restaurants right in Belfast itself in case the weather is bad or you're into a more "sit down" atmosphere. (Try the tiny Thai/Laotian restaurant in town - awesome!) The building is really pretty, and immaculately maintained by Cathy and Carl, the long-time restorers and owners. They are great hosts, and Cathy makes a special breakfast each morning around 8am for guests. The Inn was built in the 1890s, and if you like turn of the century layouts and décor... this is the place. I would highly recommend staying at The Jeweled Turret if you find yourself looking for fun in the greater Belfast area.

While many B&B's create an atmosphere of antiquity or wrap their existing antiquated B&B in beautiful furnishings, the Jeweled Turret outshines them in authenticity. My wife and I travel often and almost always stay at B&B's. This place is so stuffed with original history as seen in its photographs, paintings and charming decor; all of it has a story. I felt transported back in time. We stayed in the Amethyst Turret room. We saw others of the seven available rooms and can report they are all beautiful and roomy. The inn is situated just two blocks from the downtown area which sports many dining opportunities as well as some very nice shops. Kathy, one of the owners, serves a fabulous, multi course breakfast. One day we started with some amazing cranberry scones which was followed by individual small pineapple halves, hollowed out and filled with kiwi, grapes, melon and pineapple and finished with a dollop of yogurt. The main course was a Belgium waffle with Chantilly cream, blueberries and maple syrup. I have to say that the experience was really warm and worthy of its place as one of th better experiences we have had. I highly recommend the spot!
