Our studio apartment has all the amenities--complete kitchen, welcoming living space, queen-sized bed, cozy sitting area, gas fireplace and comfortable dining nook.
The Studio is up a flight of stairs in a lovely, 1804, Federal-style building.

The space

Our Downtown Gem is located on the second floor of a 200-year-old, Federal-style building (not handicap accessible). The apartment overlooks Belfast's Main Street on one side and a large, grassy yard on the other.
The space itself is about 400 sq. feet, and consists of a 15'x15' room with a small kitchen alcove and a separate bathroom.
It's perfect for two people.

Interaction with guests

John and I live near Lincolnville Beach, which is 12 miles from Belfast. Our guests are on their own unless they need our help, which we are more than happy to give.

Other things to note

The studio apartment is on the second floor, and there is no handicapped access. Apologies.

I have stayed at this studio for long weekends over several years. It is a wonderful studio. It is clean, comfortable and feels like home. The hosts have thoughtfully provided lots of little extras that make life easy. The kitchen is well stocked with small and large appliances and all the tools you need to prepare snacks or full meals. The apartment has books to read and games to play if you choose. It is well located, just beyond the center of town but an easy walk to shops and the harbor.

This apartment is close to shops and restaurants, as well as a short walk to the ocean. Clean and comfortable! We recommend.

The Downtown Gem is just that. A cozy studio apartment that feels more spacious than the photos suggest. It is within easy walking distance to restaurants (we liked Darby's where I got personal attention when I ordered an Old Fashioned), the charming little movie theater, and the Waterfront Trail. We stayed for six days. A perfect accommodation for two people who prefer to walk than drive.

The downtown gem was the perfect studio apartment for our week in midcoast Maine. While our son was at camp we were able to enjoy Belfast and its many restaurants (Chase's daily, Meanwhile in Belfast good pizza, the Italian restaurant, beers at Three Tides - great vibe Etc.) and Celtic festival. We loved the nice finishes in the apartment and the efficiency and spacious feeling even though it was a studio. The air conditioner worked great, as did the water/shower. The bakery next door was wonderful - almond croissants! Good thing we were active - kayaking on the passy river, walking along the little river path, hiking in Camden Hills, swimming/kayaking on Megunticook pond. Lunch at Long Grain in Camden was great. We enjoyed the location, being able to walk everywhere and the uncongested feeling of the town vs busy Camden. Thank you Lucy and John - we would gladly return.

Lucy's place was perfect for our weeklong stay. Roll out the front door to a delicious bakery or stroll two blocks to water front dining. Place is very clean and large enough to hold our stuff. We were in a six month journey so we had a "lot of stuff". Lucy was very responsive as was her on-site contact who lives down stairs. Belfast is a more "down home" version of Camden or Rockport and much more affordable. Cute town with plenty to do. Would highly recommend Maine Day Sails for a harbour cruise.

Our room offered every amenity to make for a very comfortable stay. We were within walking distance from great spots in town as well as drivable places to visit nearby.
