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 !

Wonderful Couples Retreat

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our couple's retreat at SpruceLedge. The location is an easy drive from bike rides to Popham Beach, Port Clyde, and Wiscassett as well as only 45 min from the Coastal Maine Botanical gardens near Boothbay. We ate most of our dinners overlooking the spectacular views, enjoying the pleasing privacy the location provides. The well equipped cabin is a treat to live in as one appreciates the careful thought that went into the design and the superb workmanship that executed it.

Ideal Maine Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
The location is wonderfully secluded and very inspiring. The cabin is comfortable and all of the details and finishes are simple and elegant making the space both beautiful and functional. We rented kayaks and took advantage of the location right on the water. Lots to do in the area but also a wonderful spot to get away and unwind.

Piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5
Wow! is the best word to describe this place. This is no ordinary cabin in the woods. It is a high end luxury retreat. The attention to detail is very impressive. Myself my wife and 8 year old son had the best time ever here. This place has it all...amazing water and nature views with fishing boats and sail boats coasting by as well as the occasional eagle soaring high above the trees. The place is very private yet close enough for a short drive to town for activities or provisions. Freeport outlet shopping is a 25 minute drive and beautiful Popham beach is nearby.
We stayed one week and wished we could have stayed longer. My son made us promise we would come back one day.
We strongly recommend this place

Serenity

  • 5 of 5
Just a quick message to let you know that we really enjoyed our week at your cottage. It was so relaxing and quiet. Everything was perfect and i'm still amazed by the attention to detail that was put in the building of this retreat. This is really not your average rental cabin you feel like you're at a high end resort with the privacy added.
Again thank you for allowing us to share this special place and for the obvious care you put in keeping it that way.

A Wonderful Retreat to Nature with Comfort

  • 5 of 5
We spent a delightful week with some great and some not so great weather and the cabin was an ideal home base--very well furnished (didn't even need to bring my garlic press!) and well designed to fit into it's natural environment. Great place for people who like nature and who don't mind the trip up and down 74 well-constructed and well lit (at night) stairs. The property is very clean & well maintained and everything was in its place. It's apparent that a lot of thought went into the design, as even though the cabin isn't large the space is really well utilized. The owner was very welcoming and was most anxious to answer any questions we had and to give us suggestions on best way to pack (to navigate the stairs with all of our gear upon arrival and departure) and places to see, dine, etc. The kitchen is so well equipped that we cooked and ate most of our meals there in front of the two west-facing windows, enjoying the view of the river, the lobster boats hauling traps, osprey and eagles flying past, the beautiful sunsets (and some wispy fog). We also enjoyed the deck since the mosquitoes weren't too bad despite it being pretty mild for mid-September. Location is convenient to explore eastern Casco Bay, mid-coast Maine. Though we didn't have any watercraft with us, it's an ideal spot for boaters or kayakers. The river is more like a long bay, as it is salt water and there are lots of lobster pots. There are some nice nature preserves nearby for walking/hiking and it's less than an hour away from the Boothbay area where the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden is a wonderful place to spend a day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it to others.

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just spent a dream week at SpruceLedge Cabin. It was one of the most memorable vacations we've had. The pictures certainly do not do any justice. If you are looking for a very private, quiet, and exceptionally picturesque spot, then this is the place. The home is immaculate. I highly recommend a dock side lobster delivery, where we received a dozen for the week, placed in a crate, suspended by rope into the river. We will certainly return! The owners are very nice and accommodating as well.

West Bath is located between Brunswick and Bath, on the east bank of the scenic New Meadows River which defines (with Casco Bay) the western edge of the historic Phippsburg peninsula. The Kennebec River is to the east of this peninsula. SpruceLedge Cabin, reached via Birch Point Road, looks west across the New Meadows River to the northern portion of Long Island, just above Birch Point Light and Winnegance Bay to the south. Thomas Point Beach is about 3 miles upstream on the Brunswick side, and a marina and kayak-rental service are located upstream also. The city of Bath and its many attractions is a 15-minute drive to the northeast, on coastal Route 1 where it crosses the Kennebec River, upstream of historic Fort Popham and the beaches of Popham State Park at the river's mouth.

Other Activities: Boat & kayak rentals

Notes:
On-site Services: A cleaning service is provided prior to check-in and following departure, usually at no additional cost to the renter (cost is included in a separate prepaid departure fee on the rental agreement). For multi-week renters, additional between-week cleaning(s)--- one per week, usually on Saturdays--- are also provided, on the same prepaid basis, with final scheduling arranged by the renter with the housekeeper (minimum of 48 hours notice to housekeeper). Weekly housekeeper pickup service is provided for refuse and beverage recyclables as part of the departure (or weekly) cleaning service, provided such refuse or recyclables are timely deposited by the renter in the parking area barrel(s). Though we own and love a well-behaved pet ourselves, some of our renters have animal allergies and do not. Therefore, we regret that we must enforce a no-pet policy--- for ourselves too. Sorry, no exceptions. :-(
