Downeast Rentals & Real Estate
Perfect secluded vacation
We had the best time visiting! Easy to see that there is a lot of love built into this home! It was a great change from city living and I'm not sure we've ever seen so many stars. It was wonderful to have so much privacy as well as all of the appliances you'd ever need. Hoping to get back sometime in the near future!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay... Oceanville Retreat is a beautiful homey cottage... with a loving warm atmosphere... Hope to see you back again next season.... Kindly, DMRR...
Deer Isle is a special place for us due to family history of visiting it, it's unspoiled nature, and its artistic community. We have spent multiple weeks each of the past two years at the Oceanville Retreat and thoroughly enjoyed our stays. Its location in Oceanville is ideal to explore Deer Isle and Stonington, or just be at the property and enjoy the surrounding nature. The cottage is spacious and comfortable. We only needed one bedroom, but the two second floor bedrooms provided us with the ability to invite family and friends to join us during our stays. The location of the cottage provides views of the Deer Isle Thoroughfare, with its Windjammer traffic and lobstering activity. It also provides the ability to explore the coastline and wooded trails from the cottage. A special treat has been enjoying morning coffee, sunrises, and sunsets from the granite ledges in front of the cottage.
The cottage and its furnishings are very comfortable and well equipped. Having WiFi Internet access (although intermittent at times) was a great benefit. The company that manages the rental of the property has been wonderful. The owners have also been great. During our first stay a circuit breaker tripped, and we initially had difficulty finding the circuit breaker box. However, a call to the owners quickly resolved the situation.
This is a great property in a wonderful location; and a wonderful way to experience Deer Isle.
Oceanville retreat was described accurately regarding the location of the cottage. The photos did not accurately show the living area. The bedrooms were accurately displayed. No bathroom photos were shown. The property was not clean and well maintained. The kitchen stove, sink, floor and the bathroom floors plus the wood floors were dirty. The cushions in the living area were dirty, musty and the bedding, not the sheets and towels, needed to be washed. I did not contact the owner but did communicate personally with the rental agency in Blue Hill of our problem regarding the lack of cleanliness in the cottage. They offered to send out another housekeeper, but I had already done the cleaning myself. We enjoyed being in the Deer Isle area and Stoneington area. I would not recommend this cottage to my family or friends in the future unless I knew that the cottage had been up dated and cleaned with a better housekeeping staff.
