Harbour

A waterside community for the active individual

Snuggling the Bay of Quinte, Belleville’s Harbour neighbourhood offers the waterfront lifestyle only a few steps from the revitalized downtown. This redeveloping pocket of downtown Belleville has a rich history and exciting future. The vibe in the Harbour calls out for people who enjoy strolls along the waterfront or being part of an active lifestyle that takes full advantage of Bay of Quinte’s access to Lake Ontario.

This neighbourhood’s amenities include Meyers Pier and Marina, the boat launch, the rowing club, and the Quinte Yacht club for watersports fans, the superb Bayshore and Bayfront Trails for walkers, hikers, and bikers. For a great seafood meal you can’t miss the Boathouse which is Belleville’s ONLY year round waterfront restaurant. You can go to Hankerin for some great breakfast food and Sensous’Up Cafe (Yes…it’s pronounced exactly as it’s spelled) is known for their Captain Crunch Waffles.

The Harbour neighbourhood (or the Harbourhood) contains a great mix of affordable older homes and luxury new builds. It is home to the Anchorage, currently Belleville’s only highrise waterfront condo, now over 40 years old. With a mix of some tenants and retirees in older homes, affluent buyers in the condo townhomes and the Anchorage, and only steps away from Belleville’s revitalized downtown, the Harbour is the perfect mix of urban activity and natural serenity.

Of course, as wonderful as the water can be, it can also be a potential hazard. Prospective buyers should be aware of possible flooding in the area. Entering and leaving the area can also take a bit of time if you’re forced to wait for a passing train. Even these potential water hazards and train delays are not enough to dampen the spirits of the people who call the Harbour home.
