Studio Apartment in Downtown Belfast

You can find our intimate apartment in downtown Belfast, Maine. The apartment has all the amenities--a separate and complete kitchen, a welcoming living space which includes a plush queen-size bed, cozy sitting area with gas fireplace and a comfortable dining nook.

The Studio is up a flight of stairs in a lovely, 1804, Federal-style building with history!--Underground Railroad and Rum-Runners.

Just walk out the front door to explore Belfast. Take time out from your day to return 'home' to the Studio to take a nap or rest in the shade outdoors in our enclosed side yard.

There are three long-term, occupied apartment rentals in Suite Inspirations. Our tenants are older, quiet and very considerate.

EXCELLENT Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as described - and wonderful. What was important to me: It's well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals. It's in a quiet building literally within a block of everything you could possibly need to reach on foot. It has no tv (which I prefer), but has very strong reliable wifi to stream if books don't hold your attention. As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe walking about to and from this place, even in the dark. It's in quite a lovely spot.

It's small - good for a couple. But even still, you get a lot packed into that: a comfy bed, a sitting area, a dining area, a full kitchen, a bathroom with a good sized shower, and in August on muggy nights, there was air conditioning. And it was CLEAN. Very.

You can't beat the value for such an elegant place. If you're looking in this area, pull the trigger and rent. You won't be disappointed.

A sweet little studio apartment in a charming town

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with this little "gem" overlooking the harbor town of Belfast. It was well-equipped with everything we needed for our one-week stay, and our landlady, Lucy Pincince, could not have been more helpful or accomodating. The next time we're visiting family in Belfast, we'll definitely be booking it with an eye to the availability of this lovely and comfortable studio! Thanks, Lucy and John!

Lovely and comfortable studio apartment in a quaint and relaxing riverside town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the Downtown Gem in Belfast, Maine for a long weekend. We arrived on a Friday and stayed through Monday. We've never been this far north in Maine and wanted to explore more of the state. We arrived in the studio apartment to find a well appointed space with comfortable bed, air-con, window fan, seating area, full bath with shower, and full equipped kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator, coffee maker and tea kettle. We were literally a minute walk from downtown Belfast. The town itself has great restaurants and shops, is totally walkable, and with friendly local residents. We even drove a few minutes to the other side of the river to enjoy delicious lobster at Young's Lobster Pound on the river. We inadvertently timed our visit to arrive during Harbor Fest which was a lot of fun. There was live music, a skiff building competition, boat races, food vendors and arts & crafts vendors. We also spent one day hiking in Acadia National Park which is a 1 hr. and 15 min. drive. Overall, we had a perfect stay. We highly recommend this lovely place to anyone interested in visiting Belfast, ME and the surrounding area. We'd definitely come back most likely in the fall to take in the change of seasons. Thanks to Lucy and John for making our stay so enjoyable!

Great apartment - as advertised

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very nice - private, clean, comfortable and well maintained. The owners are very responsive and do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. They even have made arrangements for off street parking. It's just a short walk to everything in town. The walk along the waterfront is especially nice and there are restaurants to satisfy everyone.
