Whether you're looking for a gift, decorative art for your home, or something special for yourself, you're sure to find it at The Lupine Cottage.

Did you see an item in our Belfast store that you wish you had bought?  Just send us an E-mail if you don't find the item listed on the web site. If we still have it, we will reply with information about availability, shipping charges, etc.

Phone calls are also welcome - we are open from 10 AM to 6 PM, and Sunday 10-3,

Our store is located on the beautiful rock-bound Maine coast on the east side of Belfast. Our front porch view of the old dam at the end of Goose River is impressive. Click here for directions.

From our second floor (Yes! There's more on display upstairs!) you can glimpse the buildings of downtown Belfast across the harbor. Stop by when you are in the area, and we will assist you in any way we can. We really do appreciate your business!

The Lupine Cottage is a member of the Belfast Area Chamber of Commerce, The Bucksport Bay Chamber of Commerce and the Maine Tourism Association. We are proud to support their efforts to promote the greater Belfast region, and the state of Maine. If you have any questions you can E-mail or call us
