Oceanview Cottage was renovated in 2017 adding beautifully painted wood floors, well appointed furnishings, updated kitchen appliances, and modern amenities while keeping the focus on the panoramic ocean views of the Penobscot Bay. The large 12' x 30' screened in porch with ample seating and dining options welcomes outdoor dining, enjoying a glass of wine, or a cup of coffee in the morning.
When you first arrive at the cottage, you are welcomed by beautiful hydrangeas with an ocean view backdrop that changes with the tide and weather. Walking into the house, the open concept living room with oversized couches and chairs and television lead into the dining area with seating for up to 8 people. The updated kitchen has modern appliances, glassware, cookware and a propane gas range. The kitchen looks out to the dining and living area which leads into the screened in porch and then to the lawn facing the water. There are a few stairs to access the beach area which is great for beachcombing, launching kayaks, or swimming. The lower level of the house is a dry, un-finished basement, with a ping pong table to enjoy on rainy days. Adult supervision is recommended for children under 12 years old.
Walking up to the second floor, the comfortable king bedroom has a large dresser, a comfy chair, and peg rails with expansive views of the ocean. Down the hall is the queen bedroom with a sitting area, ample closet space, and ocean views. There is a shared, full bathroom with a stall shower. The bunk bedroom is perfect for young adults or visiting guests and has 2 lower comfortable beds and 2 large bean bag chairs.
Downtown Belfast is a short drive from the cottage or a 15-20 minute walk through quiet residential streets. The house is located on a dead end street. The Belfast Co-Op is a short drive and has local produce and groceries or Hannaford is a couple miles away. Belfast used to be a fishing village which has now developed into a quaint town with numerous boutique shops, restaurants, a theater and the Front Street Shipyard. The Rail Trail is a well manicured 2.5 mile walking path running along the Passagassawakeag River which continues winding around the Belfast Harbor waterfront and down to the Heritage Park. Throughout the summer, the town has Arts in the Park, the Celtic Festival, Belfast Harbor Days and more! There is a great weekly, year-round Farmers Market.
