About Richard Miles

Susan and Richard moved to this area in 1997 after falling in love with the scenery and serenity of Downeast Maine. They are both artists and gardeners.

Richard Miles purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Richard Miles chose Downeast and Acadia

Downeast Maine is still unspoiled, both wild and peaceful and without the crowds of the lower Maine coast. This property feels like a natural, intimate and independent world of its own.

What makes this apartment unique

Privacy (no neighboring houses visible), proximity to ocean and beaches, lovely views, flower and vegetable gardens.

Unique, serene retreat

  • 4 of 5

Richard & Susan (and Leo, the adorable and sweet pooch) were welcoming and helpful, but also allowed us our space and privacy. Their converted barn apartment is eclectic, clean and comfortable, with a "shabby chic" vibe.

There's a great collection of books on the shelves, including some of Richard's own published poetry, which I enjoyed very much.

The property is so breathtaking and serene...the flowers & garden, the stone & metal artwork, the fragrant (pine) path down to the water...rabbits, birds, and chipmunks aplenty!

Some of the kitchen utensils, pots and pans could use a bit of an upgrade, and the tap water had an unpleasant smell & taste (but water cooler provided for drinking). If you plan on doing a lot of cooking, be sure to bring spices and oil/cooking spray.

Thank you SO much for creating such an amazing getaway, off the beaten path. We enjoyed ourselves immensely, and highly recommend this property.

The apartment was beautiful and clean and comfortable for our two day stay. Being right on the water with kayaks at our disposal was a big bonus!

Refresh. Renew. Revive.

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Susan have created a sanctuary filled with beauty. Their own creations: paintings, poetry, sculptures and gardens meld beautifully with Mother Nature’s land, sea and sky. A destination in and of itself – Oak Point Retreat does not disappoint. The Barn apartment is light, open and exceedingly comfortable - replete with all the amenities of home. Opportunities for hiking, exploring, kayaking are plentiful. And a meditative peacefulness envelopes the entire compound, wrapping every guest in its protective light. The perfect souvenir meant to be cherished from a visit so worth making. Thank you Susan and Richard - from our hearts to yours.

My wife and I came from Germany for a 4-weeks-trip to New England. Here in Harrington we had this wonderful barn Apartment in a quiet and peaceful surrounding. It is tastefully furnished, everything is very clean, the bed and duvet are extremely comfortable.

Susan and Richard are very hospitable, helpful and friendly but also unobtrusive - thank you for your hospitality!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great place and wonderful hosts! The apartment was very nice; clean, comfortable, and peaceful with lots of amenities. We enjoyed walking along the bay and watching ducks and shorebirds during low tide. It was also nice to be able to bring our dog along for the trip. We highly recommend staying here!
