About Seth Thayer
We have been renovating and renting out properties since 2007 with Homeaway. We obsessed about the Ocean House for years before purchasing her and doing the redesign. We designed the changes ourselves and did a lot of the grunt work in renovating the building. It took us six months to build out this apartment, which we also designed, build and furnished ourselves. Greg is an architectural designer and Seth is a private curator, specializing in American art of the 18th and 19th centuries. Some of their art collection fills the wall of the Ocean House. We love the Ocean House and hope you do too!
Seth Thayer purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Seth Thayer chose Belfast
The Ocean House is something special in the heart of downtown Belfast Maine. Prominently situated at the intersection of Main, Cross, and Federal Streets, The Ocean House was built as a hotel in 1865 and survived at least one of the fires that destroyed most of the downtown. We gutted her down to the studs and rebuilt. We carved out this wonderful, HUGE apartment in the upper two floors and took advantage of our sight lines so that there is something interesting to look at out of each of the 18 windows. 360 degree views of downtown Belfast and the harbor Come stay in our beautiful building with views to Castine and beyond! And also with views of Belfast's industrial past!

Beautiful Views, Great Space
We enjoyed this comfortable, tastefully decorated duplex on top of the Ocean House. Our grandchildren did too, loved being in town
with everything accessible. Wonderful visit.
Thanks Betsy! Let me know about Christmas!
Roomy, quiet, very comfortable place to stay, exceptionally well equipped and maintained. And it’s in the heart of Belfast, the civil gem of Midcoast Maine.
Thank you Anne, we hope to see you back at the Ocean House soon!
Ideal downtown stay
We rented the apartment for a large family Thanksgiving gathering and we found it to be ideal.
The magical mid-coast town Belfast, known to some as Moon Bat Kingdom, is a marvelous small town that seemingly has it all, good shopping, good food, a wonderful harbor, great festivals, a world class boat yard, dozens of walking and biking trails, friendly people. wonderful architecture and beautiful parks. We are 8 miles from the Camden Hills and hiking trails and just steps away from the new waterfront and rail walking trails in the city of Belfast. You can go out on a charter boat, or walk and shop the city streets. Be sure to check out the Chamber of Commerce office open at the bottom of Maine Street!
