Beautiful views across the bay and well placed to stroll into town, across the bridge or along the woodland trail from the harbour. The description given on is accurate.There is plenty of variety in the house and we had fun playing table tennis in the basement. Only a couple of things that would have made our stay even better. A mirror in all bedrooms, an extra hairdryer and a kettle (the later being the most important). Cate was a responsive owner who was happy to be contacted with any questions or concerns. Check in was made very simple which we needed after an 8 hour drive from Vermont. Based in Belfast,which has a small town feel, you can get away from the tourist bustle, although also only an hour from the gift shops and scenic drive in the busier Bar Harbor/Acadia State Park. In Belfast the restaurant that we chose to eat in Delvino's, Grill and Pasta House, had a last entry at 8pm, so if eating out go early. The food was worth the visit. Thanks Cate we had a great time.
