Welcome to the Nightfall Inn
Please be advised, due to the COVID-19 outbreak and mandates from the State of Maine, we are only accepting guests from Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut-with advance notice. As of July 1, residents from other regions are welcome to stay provided they render proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hrs of arrival in state, or proof of a 14 day in-state quarantine- such as a receipt from prior lodgings. This State regulation will be enforced, as well as social distancing guidelines. At this time, only 2 out of our 4 rooms will be made available, and we are strictly adhering to all cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing procedures, as we always have.

Nestled in Belfast, halfway up the coast of Maine, the Nightfall warmly welcomes all through its doors. “Thank you for such a warm and welcoming stay! Appreciate all you did to make this a home away from home!”-M.S., NJ 2017. Built in the mid-1800’s, this stately house has had many lives. In the 1920’s its convenient location on Coastal Rt. 1 loaned itself to being a lodge, where a weary traveler could have a meal, a clean bed to sleep in, and add a bath for a nickel!
Meet Your Hosts!
Your hosts, Kelly and John, have resurrected the inn’s name and charm, but have added a few modern amenities. All four newly renovated, quiet rooms have their own private baths en suite. “We had a Wonderful stay! The bed was so comfy, the room was so cozy, and the food was amazing!”-L.J., KY 2018. A hearty breakfast from rotating menu items such as sweet or savory crepes, eggs to order (including omelettes), pancakes, hot or cold cereal, fresh baked goods and fruit awaits you each morning. The snack room offers a Keurig, complimentary bottled water and soda, various goodies including homemade cookies, a guest refrigerator, and of course, snacks. Grab a book from the Take One Leave One library, a cold beverage, and explore the grounds. Discounts given to uniformed personnel, veterans, and seniors over the age of 65.
Keen on exploration?
We are 350 yards of sidewalk from the pedestrian bridge spanning the mouth of the Passagassawakeag River, where it empties into Belfast Bay. “Great time as always! bringing the kayaks next time, going for the 40″ striper!”-B.F., ME 2019. Take the bridge through a working shipyard into the quintessential seaside town of Belfast where you will find numerous shops and restaurants.
Venture a little farther around the area and you’ll discover state parks, lakes, boat launches, vineyards and breweries, to say the least. Head north along the coast to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, leave time to stop and explore the many seaside towns and various antique shops. Just south is the ferry to Ilseboro and Vinyl Haven islands. The popular towns of Camden and Rockland are but thirty minutes away. “What a wonderful surprise for our unexpected stopover!”-G.D., NC 2019
Sit Back and Relax
Whether you are a returning friend or a new one, whether you stopover for one night or stay for many, our promise is to make you feel relaxed and at home. “We had a blast! Really enjoyed being here, very comfortable, great breakfast, warm atmosphere. We will be back!”-Y.L., Montreal 2019. “It truly was more like visiting friends than renting a room.”-B.C., FL 2019.
And speaking of new friends, look who followed a guest home Thursday 10/12/19, during the night of a full moon and decided to stay. Named Cujo by another guest, she is a sweet thing who follows people around.
