Ed and Judy Hemmingsen are not new to the innkeeping business. They built a 97-room luxury hotel in Bar Harbor, Maine, near Acadia National Park. Their restaurant was one of only 41AAA Five Diamond Awardrecipients in North America. The diamonds reflect Ed and Judy’s love of the innkeeping business. In 2000, they sold their hotel and retired to Belfast, Maine, bought a Main Street building and transformed it into the Belfast Bay Inn : Boutique Hotel.
