West Bath Cabin Rental Photos and Description
1 Twin BR w/ king loft over, 1 full bath, great room w/premium queen sofa bed.
'SpruceLedge Cabin', built in 2007, is a cozy, private, spectacular salt-waterfront vacation retreat on Maine's New Meadows River. Its remote woodland location is in the town of West Bath, on a peninsula just 15 minutes south of coastal Route 1. Dramatic sunset views from its rugged slopeside location. Perfect for couples: one bedroom with twin beds (with additional king-size mattress loft over), premium queen sleep sofa in living room. Full bath, modern kitchenette, outside deck with bar, laundry, other amenities. Easily-navigated 24/7 boating access, secure mooring, large private deep water dock with utilities for visiting tie-ups. Perfect for coastal yachtsman’s private land base while cruising the beautiful Maine coast. Public transportation, restaurants, museums, theater, galleries, fitness, beaches, marinas and other facilities available in nearby Bath, Brunswick, Freeport, etc. No smoking, pets or open fires. Ours is a steep site and the cabin has a small living area, so ask about suitability for toddlers and the infirm. For this reason and to better assure our guests' vacation satisfaction, we prefer couples-only. However, two (at most) age-appropriate family members, or adult visitors for only a night or two, could be considered.
Amenities' Details: Laundry (washer/dryer) & hospitality service room off deck. Jotul 'chill chaser' (gas) stove in living room.
Entertainment/Computer Access: CD / DVD / AM&FM radio / Hi-Definition Cable TV w/DVR / High-Speed W-Fi Internet Access.
Outside: Deck includes patio furniture seating 4-plus. Beverage service/storage room keeps hospitality 'out of my kitchen'. Ambient deck lighting at night enhances one's enjoyment of sunsets. Stainless Char-Broil BBQ. An additional gas tripod allows off-deck use of a large hospitality lobster / corn pot (provided). Private deep water dock with night-time lighting, adjacent heavy-duty mooring and 24-ft float has 24/7 utility (no mud outs), 30-Amp AC power and fresh water for boater tie-ups. On-site Services: A post-departure cleaning by Housekeeper is required ($115), with extra multi-week cleanings in accordance with the rental agreement.
Amenities' Details: Cellphone reception at SpruceLedge Cabin is good, depending on the device, service host, other conditions and where caller is standing (outside on deck, inside, etc). Subject to availability, the hard line telephone offers free local calling. You'll be billed for the others, but bring your cellphone if you wish to avoid these, along with an answering machine if you want one.
Suitability: SpruceLedge Cabin is only available for rent on a WEEKLY Saturday-to-Saturday basis (or multiples thereof) to people who are responsible and generally at least 25 years of age. Though the cabin can technically accommodate additional occupants, due to limited space it is best suited for a couple looking for a private retreat and for anyone who is able to walk up and down a secure, well built, woodsy, nighttime-illuminated, 74-step pedestrian riverbank stairway/ramp system (see photos), or an adjacent gravel trail of about 150-feet in length varying from 0-20% in slope (approximate). Therefore, though having a spectacular view, private access to the water and modern amenities, the property may not be suitable for anyone needing close supervision or who is physically infirm; so please ask about your own circumstances.
Picture this--- you're sitting on the deck surrounded by the quiet woods, or you're down on the dock catching a fish for dinner--- and you're watching the sun set in a spectacular sky over the far shore. Or, on a beautiful morning with the sun just peeping over the ridge behind you--- with a hot cup of breakfast coffee in hand--- you're on the deck, high above the river, watching the local lobstermen haul, harvest and re-set their numerous multi-colored pots, the wide variety of other boating activity on the river, and the abundant wildlife. Great blue heron, ducks, ospreys, if you're lucky even a resident pair of bald eagles pass by your gaze--- or perhaps you've gone down to the river to arrange for lobster drop-offs from one of the local fishermen, just in time for a classic Maine dinner--- 'finest kind '' !! For a real Maine Coast vacation, what can be better than that? Please inquire about your own reservation now !
