Top 10 Coastal Maine Inns and B&Bs: Belfast Bay Inn & Luxury Suites
Our No. 5 spot has received its fair share of recognition, including the honor of becoming the seaside town of Belfast’s first – and only – bed and breakfast to be awarded a prestigious AAA Four-Diamond designation. It may seem silly, but we simply couldn’t pass up the chance to heap a few praises of our own upon this coastal Maine inn!
Belfast Bay Inn is also one of few coastal Maine accommodations to boast a place among the distinguished ranks of the Select Registry Boutique Hotel list. But what we most admire about this Belfast bed and breakfast is its innkeepers’ genius decision to take up residence in a pair of 19th-century rowhouses and transform them into luxury suites surrounded by Belfast’s quaint shops and boutiques. And this Maine inn’s convenient Main Street address puts you a short stroll from Belfast Harbor’s waterfront, while Camden and Acadia National Park are both a scenic drive away!
We think Belfast Bay Inn’s boutique-style ambiance is perfect for special occasions and long weekends on the New England coast. Tulips border the brick-lined sidewalks and streets of Shoreline Park and the inn’s garden courtyard is the perfect place to curl up with a cup of tea and that book you’re desperate to crack open. Slip on a soft terrycloth robe in the comfort of your Belfast Bay suite and sit back as skilled hands gently massage away every last trace of stress away!
