Ocean House Hotel
Ranked #2 of 2 Port Clyde B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 June 2013

This hotel is very old, built in the mid 1800's, and is the definition of quaint! Rooms are small, stairs steep with multiple staircases. There is no AC so our room on the third floor was hot. The room only had one electrical outlet so we had to switch often to charge our camera batteries with the room lamps. Staff was helpful and the location is great, being only a couple of hundred feet to the Monhegan ferry. The breakfast was very good and staff do accomodate early meals for the 7:00 ferry departure. You have the feeling of being way back in time when you stay here and that is part of the experience!

Paintings from the Wyeth family adorn the walls. Breakfast is delicious. The rooms are spotless and my bed in room 11 was so very very comfy. Rocking in the Rocking chair looking at the misty ocean port. Couldn't have been more quaint or lovely!

The host and hostess are real nice. The hotel is very old, with steep stairs. Noise travels in the building, but luckily the median age of the guests is somewhere north of 60, so the place settles down at a reasonable hour.

The breakfast was real good, and the coffee was very tasty. The many outdoor locations to sit adds to the experience.

I have to agree with the other reviews of Ocean House. There is a quaint charm to the building, and Patsy was a most helpful host. We were only scheduled for one night, but stayed a second night after being informed about a death in the family which forced the cancellation of our trip to Monhegan. Patsy was great in accommodating our needs. She suggested we visit Rockland, and she did not disappoint in her recommendation. As far as our accommodations we were on the third floor, and I can attest to the steepness of the steps. Lugging a suitcase up and down was a great workout. The room was not air conditioned, but we found a small fan in the hallway and used it on the second night. I would also like to mention the people at the Monhegan Boat Line. When I informed them of our family situation they processed a refund of our tickets that morning. They showed a great sense of compassion that we will not forget.

We have stayed here a number of times. The hosts are great and it has wonderful charm. Great balconies for sitting, and friendly free breakfasts in the dining room. The location is fantastic at the waterfront. It has decent parking, walking distance to boat ferry, restaurant, and ice cream shop. Walking distance (about 15 minutes) to picturesque light house. But the quality of your staff varies considerably by which room you get--they're all different. There is no air conditioning or ceiling fans (although one room had a portable fan). Often it cools down wonderfully at night, but most of the windows have no window screens or window screens with holes, so you end up with mosquito bites. The beds for 2 people are doubles, not queens because the rooms are very small. Some don't have bathrooms and so you need to share one in the hall. If there were good window screens, I could sleep and be happy, but without them, it's really uncomfortable. Stairs are very narrow and steep, so luggage can be a challenge. No locking rooms, so you need to be comfortable with that.

Room Tip: Get as large a room as possible, preferably on as low a floor as possible (higher floors are hotter...

I was priveledged to stay here with Patsy and Joe, they are wonderful hosts. The view from the verandah in the evenings in wonderful. Best coffee I have ever tasted is served in the morning, along with a good breakfast. Rooms are very old as is the building, but very clean and tidy. There is a faint odor of mustiness in the room I stayed in but I didn't mind it as everything else made up for it.. NOT a good place to stay if you can't climb stairs, the stairs are very steep to the rooms and the ones on the third floor are almost straight up~ I would recommend this to anyone wanting this type of old Maine vacation spot..but not if you can't climb stairs.

We happened upon this gem located in Port Clyde, Saint George, Maine. Immaculate, laid back, delightful views and located at the harbor. Walking distance to local restaurants, kayaking, and ferry to Monhegan Island.
We chose a room with private bath. We had wonderful views of the harbor from our window. Enjoyed sitting on the second floor deck for five o'clock s, heavenly view.
The owner Patsy was so helpful and accommodating. Looking forward to returning very soon.

Room Tip: Not sure about the other rooms there but we had room 9/10 and found it perfect. We did poke our hea...
