Rose and Larry "make" the experience of staying at this B&B in quiet Belfast, ME. The property is a simple 1840s Greeek Revival house built by a merchant, relatively straightforward and unadorned by gardens or other "Wow" factors. It does feature a handsome spiral staircase and comfortable seating in downstairs rooms. Lodging is upstairs in rooms with and without their own bathrooms. The B&B sits on a tree-lined street of historic homes and is just a five minute walk to the surprisingly active and interesting small port town of Belfast. The innkeepers seem genuinely pleased to have you as a guest, and are welcoming and friendly. They seem highly energetic and eager to please. Breakfast was creative and delicious, with a fruit compote, muffins, and a breakfast plate that included vegetable hash browns (carrots and onions, etc. without the potatoes). Our room, the Annie Partridge, was a bit tight, had a smallish queen sized bed, and a little but sufficient bathroom.
