Belfast — Belfast Bay Inn, a luxury hotel on Main Street in downtown Belfast for the last decade has sold to a Boston couple with ties to the Midcoast.

Clint and Susan Condon purchased the property from Ed and Judy Hemmingsen on March 15, according to an announcement of the sale. The sale price was not disclosed. The property currently is assessed by the city at $1,459,200.

The Hemmingsens bought the building at 70 Main St. in a bank sale in 2005. Over the next two years, they renovated the building and in 2008 opened the eight-suite Belfast Bay Inn. Since then, the hotel has received the coveted AAA Four Diamond Award and currently is ranked number 18 on TripAdvisor's list of Best Small Hotels in the U.S.

The Condons plan to continue operating the property as a boutique hotel and make some improvements to the exterior of the building, according to the announcement. The couple are based in Boston and have a second home in Northport.

“Clint has been summering in Northport since childhood and I have come to love and treasure the area as much as he does,” Susan Condon said. “Traveling from our home outside Boston to our home here has always been a special time. We are so happy to have found the ideal business for us in Belfast Bay Inn. We are very excited to start welcoming guests and be a permanent part of the community.”

Judy Hemmingsen said she and her husband are happy to be handing off the business to the Condons.

“Clint and Susan are the perfect people to take the Belfast Bay Inn into its next chapter,:" she said. "We wish them all the very best and know that our repeat guests will enjoy them and the Belfast community will embrace them.”
