About Caitlin Hills

The owner and her family enjoy Maine and all it has to offer. This is a child friendly and dog friendly house! We so love watching the sailboats sail by and our resident Bald Eagle soar through the skies. Belfast is a wonderful community and we hope you will come and visit!

What makes this house unique

We love eating at the picnic table inches from the water,we love finding seaglass right on our beach, we love walking along the beach to Belfast City Park to enjoy an ice cream cone and a game of tennis, or a cool refreshing swim in the public outdoor pool. We love settling down for a nice long read of one of the books from our extensive collection.. We love it all, and we know you will too!

We have returned to Belfast and this 'home away' for the third year---and have already booked it for 2017. We love Belfast itself; it has the small town feel and accessibility that seems to have vanished from most places. But we also love this house. It accommodates our grandchildren when they visit and yet feels very comfortable when we are on our own. Everything that others have said on this site is true---the expansive view, the charm of the interior, the thoughtfulness of the owner. I feel fortunate to be here!

Quintessential Maine Vacation

  • 5 of 5

When we walked through this house upon arrival, my 19-year old looked at me and said, "This could be my favorite house we've ever been in." That pretty much sums up this house. Even without the Bayside setting, you should visit this house. It is quintessential Maine. It is so cozy that you almost hope for a storm that forces you to hunker down inside. There are 3 distinct living areas, so there is plenty of room for napping or reading if you want some time alone. But it does have the view, and what a view it is! You can see the water from every room in the house. It is the most peaceful setting you can imagine. Caitlin has it stocked with everything you need, including an awesome grill, and their is a really nice grocery nearby. Belfast is a lovely town that is not too overrun with tourist. You are also close to several state parks, and Acadia is an easy drive. But why leave when you can sit in the yard with a glass of wine and experience perfect peace. Or as my son did, sit on a big rock, in the Bay, with your fishing line in the water.

A Perfect Maine Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. The fresh flowers and breakfast starters were a nice touch after such a long drive. We love the way every room takes full advantage of the waterfront with large windows looking over Penobscot Bay. We enjoyed the beautiful sunrises on the deck each morning along with listening to the buoy bell and the charm of the home with antique furniture and books. The beach is just steps away and so enjoyable to walk when the tide is out, searching for unique stones and sea glass. What a great kitchen too!

Your recommendation of the farmers market was perfect. We found lots of goodies, fresh bread and local goat cheese. A bottle of wine and some deli meats complimented these for our evening with a cozy fire in the fireplace.

This is a place you can truly relax and take in the Maine experience. We started to miss this home from the time we left the driveway.

A lovely vacation in a charming home!

  • 5 of 5

Having a week in this charming waterfront home was not time enough. We were in love with the relaxing sense of the property, and the amazing views. Children & dogs on the beach - seals, boats and loons in and on the water provided an easy afternoon's entertainment. The town of Belfast has great shops, restaurants & cafes - and the harbor walk is a must! What fun it was to enjoy a lobster expedition, set up by Cat, our kind and gracious hostess/homeowner! Cat even made doubly sure that we would connect with the correct boat & captain by taking an early morning trip down to the dock before our excursion. (Very much appreciated, Cat!) The sweet home is well stocked with linens, kitchen appliances, equipment & serviceware, and is perfectly decorated in the smart & classically restrained Maine fashion that you'd wish for. We spent fun evenings lingering at the dining table, talking, laughing & playing board games while listening to great music. Just perfect! Our thanks to Cat, for checking in to see that we were comfortable, and happy - and we were! As our daughter offered, "the home was better that we'd had hoped for", and it would be a pleasure to enjoy it again!

Secluded, Relaxing and Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August 2014 and loved it. It's a great location, just outside the lovely town of Belfast right on the Bay. It's very private, but not isolated and we walked into town a couple of times. There are great restaurants and shops in Belfast. We ate and shopped at Chase's Daily and it was delicious. There's a lovely Co-op nearby that has a great selection of healthy foods.

Our two active boys loved playing on the beach for hours as we watched them from an Adironack chair from the house. We saw lots of beautiful sail boats and wildlife, including a seal that came right near the shore. There's a great park just a few minute's walk down the beach which wins the Most Scenic Playground award. Also has a nice pool.

We explored all the charming local towns -- Camden, Rockport were our two favorites. We went hiking in the State Park near Camden and fishing at nearby Swan Lake. We also made a day trip to Acadia which was incredible. Definitely worth the hour trip each way.

The house is comfortable, open, and well stocked for cooking all that delicious Maine produce. You could quite happily spend the whole vacation just hanging at the house.

Cat is a wonderful host and makes sure you have everything you need. We hope to be back again soon!

Wonderfully Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We (2 couples) spent two weeks in this lovery oceanfront cottage. The house was very comfortable with upstairs/downstairs spaces for each couple's privacy. The house was very clean and tidy. The exposed beams in the home give it that "old Maine cottage" feel with the luxury of having all modern conveniences. The owner is just delightful and provides everything you could ever need in a kitchen (even a Food Processor and Kitchen Aid Mixer!) plus full cabinets of dishes and serving pieces. Very comfortable bedding with extra blankets for cool evenings. The decks are complete with seating and a large gas grill. The view from the house is fabulous having large windows in each room - watching the boat traffic in and out of Belfast Harbor, beautiful sun rises and moon glow over the water. Just a few steps down to the low-tide beach for hunting sea glass. The house has bookcases filled with wonderful reading for all interests, games for children and even a drawer filled with art supplies. Only 1 mile to downtown Belfast for shopping, art galleries and lots of dining options. We have been traveling to Maine for over 20 years and in Belfast for the last 8. We have already booked this house for next year!
