Reviewed August 9, 2010

We only had time for a one night stay. This exceeded our expectations - everything you've read on this message board, and in the property owner's website is true, and then some. We will make a return trip for a longer stay.

The Belfast Bay Inn is a gem. The owners, Eddie and Judy are very hospitable, friendly and helpful. Our room was extremely spacious with outstanding bed and bath linens, a fireplace, refrigerator, dual sinks in the bathroom. Breakfast was prepared by Judy and was excellent.
It is an 8 room hotel so book early. We were there for only three nights and if we had planned differently we would have stayed longer.

From the moment we walked into the beautifully decorated lobby (a knockout!) we were blown away by our experience at the Belfast Bay Inn. Even though it has only 8 suites and rooms, it is truly a boutique hotel with a feeling of unpretentious luxury that rivals any hotel that we've stayed in across Europe. Our suite was the size of our Paris apartment and had everything that we would ever need. The bed was like a dream... What a nice surprise to have the owners Eddie and Judy Hemmingsen (just the nicest couple...) arrive at our door in the AM with an delicious full breakfast! Our only disappointment was that we stayed only one night. The inn is located in the middle of everything in Belfast with parking right at the door. If you don't know about Belfast, we'd recommend a visit. It is the "genuine" Maine but still just a few miles down the road from the better known and more crowded tourist spots like Camden. We can't remember the last time that we were so thrilled about the value that we got for our travel dollar. What a treat!

Beautiful suite with every comfort and need anticipated and met. Breakfast was delicious and served elegantly. We stayed only one night and were sorry to leave. Next time we will definitely stay there and stay longer!

Meticulously restored with great attention to quality and comfort
Great location that is quiet, within walking distance to the majority of shops, and restaurants with good service and food.
An undiscovered oasis without the crowds and heavy traffic of the "tourist" centers which are only a short drive away so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
Includes a wonderful breakfast served on a beautiful patio
Very accomodating owners and staff
Great value

My husband and I had the most amazing stay at the Belfast Bay Inn. Ed and Judy really pulled out all the stops to make the luxurious rooms feel like a home away from home. From the minute you walk through the door, you're greeted with sincere hospitality and gorgeous upholstered furniture. The elegant breakfast that Ed and Judy brought to our room was what really made our stay the highlight of our trip. We definitely recommend the Belfast Bay Inn to everyone that wants the best. Thanks for everything Ed and Judy, we'll be back to see you again!

If you are anywhere near Belfast,Maine,you would be mad not to stay at Belfast Bay Inn.
The suites are truly luxurious and terrific value.
The owners,Ed & Judy,couldn't do enough for us and were outstanding hosts.
Definitely the right spot.
