About Deidre Sousa

Semi-retired school teacher moved to this very special community 16 years ago to escape the fast paced work life in Massachusetts and enjoy the slower pace of Maine 'the way life should be' ( the state slogan).

Deidre Sousa purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Deidre Sousa chose Belfast

Located in the heart of Belfast where music,dance, yoga, poetry, theater, art, great food, boating, history, farmer's market, COOP grocery, and parks share sun and moon rises on the Bay.

A half hour or less to lakes, mountains, and state parks, a little more than an hour to Acadia National Park.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The little long house provides indoor separate spaces for privacy, contemplation, light- filled dining, kitchen, sun-room combination, arches and art, levels and surprises of color that uplift the spirit. there are 2 separate sleeping areas, one in the front upstairs of the house. The other in the far back of the house, again upstairs but not connected to the front area for a feeling of separateness and privacy. Outside the flower and vegetable gardens, shaded hammock and sitting area nourish body and soul.

WIFI capability.

Magical and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5
From the moment we walked up the little path (paved with numerous shards of china) to the entrance, I could feel the positive energy of this darling, little cottage and its owner. It is much more charming than the photos depict. It is filled with original art, wonderful reading material, and a great selection of music CDs. We relaxed in the Zen-like garden area from which we picked tomatoes, chard, kale and fresh herbs for several of our meals and drank our coffee from hand-made cups. The little pantry was filled with a vast selection of organic spices, oils and vinegars for those of us who like to cook. We were charmed with this little house and it provided us with the relaxing serenity we were looking for. My husband and I are school teachers in our late 60's and my sister is a widow also in her late 60's and we come to Belfast every year for all of its magical charms. This was our first stay in this lovely home and I feel it was the most relaxing. There were only two negatives---the open stairway to the one bedroom is a little dicey to negotiate and the little steps between rooms can present some tripping if you don't pay attention. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this wonderful home in this fabulous town to anyone seeking relaxation and charm.

Beautiful cottage with lots of charactor

  • 5 of 5
When arriving at the cottage we felt totally welcome and at home. The cottage was fantastic with tons of special touches. It was better than described. We even had a bag of fresh Maine blueberries waiting for us. The garden was beautiful and to be able to pick fresh vegetables to use for our meals was a delight. The beds were very comfortable sitting area both inside and out were great. I can't say enough about the decorating!!! Loved every minute we were there. Lots of books to read and CDs to listen to. Thank you so much for letting us use your little piece of heaven in Belfast!

Perfect Creative Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Close to Penobscot Bay on a quiet street with other historic houses, this fully equipped and sparkling clean house was perfect for two creative types looking for the perfect working vacation. Two separate "wings" each with a living/dining room area provided us with enough distance to work on our respective pieces, while the gorgeous garden room and productive kitchen garden gave us a great space for our down time. We walked to the ocean, and to town every day and enjoyed the many fantastic restaurants, shops and festivals that Belfast has to offer.

A wonderful summer getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a wonderful week in Maine at this house along with some friends visiting from New York. An easy walk to the beach or town, so you can give your car a rest. Everything was clean and well kept in the house, and I can't think of anything we were missing. A delightful vacation spot!!!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
This cozy, quirky cottage anchored an excellent family vacation. The pottery, the clean but cheerful decor, and the center-of-it-all kitchen worked made us feel right at home. We used lettuce, greens and herbs from the garden, and my architect husband was enchanted with the garden "room." We were there one evening when a family of chickadees landed over our heads and carried on a huge conversation. The teens were grousing about food, as usual.

Cool breezes and a quiet neighborhood made for great sleeping. The ocean, park and town are all within easy walking distance. If you’re a foodie, don’t miss The Gothic, an excellent restaurant in a beautiful old building. If you aren’t a foodie, at least have a drink at the beautiful bar.

We explored Belfast, then nearby towns and even made it as far as Portland, where we loved the art museum. I could have stayed a month, so I’ll be back. Our 30-ish kids were just as pleased and loved having a home to explore from rather than a hotel.

The owner was very helpful with suggestions for things to do, including the do-not-miss full moon rising over the water. Magic.

Owner's Response: Harvesting greens, singing chickadees, rising moon, dining out in style, sharing time with adult children . I loved that my house got to share the magic of Belfast with all of you.

Lovely Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the home in early spring with my two young children and it was a very comfortable stay. The yard and outdoor seating areas is delightful on warmer days and the location is ideal for exploring town by foot.

The house is cozy and isn't drafty on cool nights. There are some interesting books on the shelves and a few children's toys, but the house is by no means cluttered. It's easy to arrive and feel right at home. The home was clean, well organized, and in good condition, but with the charm of an older home (arched doorways, beautiful floors, etc.).
