HI there- Here I am in front of my Maine home with one of my huge Dahlias- I have over 50 varieties that grow beside the house in the summer. My whole family are Mainers and my mom and dad met at the Brunswick naval air station long ago. My grandfather owned the town grain store in Bath and my great grandfather had a farm once attacked by Indians. Spruce Cove is a magical place and home to me and my grown boys ( occasionally) and many friends from around the world all summer. We come in the winter too for cosy retreats and snow shoeing and contemplation.

Carla --- Member of Homeaway since 2005 purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

We bought this property because my husband fell in love with it the minute he saw it and was so very happy here. It has a magical quality about it because of the tides coming and going , the wildlife and the tranquility. Every summer is filled with wonderful memorable times from the fairy twinkles of fireflies in the woods in June to the fall colors brilliantly shining off the cove in October.

You drive fifteen minutes from Bowdin College and Brunswick

(only 30 form LL Bean) and find yourself in the most quiet serene setting of nature imaginable Bald eagles soar overhead, baby foxes cavort on the walls around the garden and the tides ebb and flow teaming with birdlife and an occasional deer, stripers caught right in the Cove off of my kayak.

Top Notch for Everything

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 13, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2012
A truly tranquil spot that is very much home from home. The owner keeps the property in fine order and there is plenty of space and something there for everyone. Do try to avoid falling out of one of the canoes from the basement if you can as the shore is naturally muddy and a careless slip led to a smelly dunking. Fortunately, hot showers and towels fixed that problem.....
That was the only problem.

The location is well placed for those that want to explore the local area too and next time we visit we hear that there may also be a dock!

This is managed by an owner that wants to do it right.

You will be hard pressed to find a better place to stay and we didn't want to leave.

Fabulous Maine vacation home on a private cove

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We were looking for a large home for a family and friends reunion in Maine. This beautiful home, located on a secluded finger of the Maine coastline, was the perfect location. The property resides on six acres of land at the end of a private road which guarantees you the upmost privacy. The house sits at the top of a hill which overlooks a beautiful bay. Lots of trees and wildlife. We even saw a family of foxes on our morning walks.

The house is huge! The bedrooms are large and most are framed with beautiful windows with views of the bay. The modern kitchen is equipped with professional oven and upscale granite counter tops. There is a lovely sunroom to sit in on rainy days. A large deck which is just outside the kitchen door is the perfect spot for evening entertaining. It includes a barbecue, large patio table and bar. If you and your friends decide to party into the night, the backyard has a large fire pit and you can play the music as loud as you want since no one will hear you except your guests.

There are many activities available for you during the day. Hiking, sport fishing, boating are just a few of your choices. There are many good restaurants in the area and plenty of places to pickup fresh Maine lobster. If you want to get in the car to do some sight seeing, the scenic Maine coast which includes the Pemaquid Lighthouse, Portland Maine, and L.L. Bean's world headquarters are close by. I never wanted to leave this place. It was one week of "living life in the bubble". I can't wait to come back again.

Nestled high above its own private cove, with easy access to a dock and canoes/paddleboats, stands Spruce Cove. Its spacious rooms, chock full of authentic New England treasures, each afford unique views of the stunning panorama below. The isolation and quiet of Spruce Cove, however, is supplemented by walks through woods and along island roads, and is only a quick 15 minutes from Brunswick ME and Bowdoin College. Thus, the combination of culture and natural beauty, sumptuous accommodation and alluring recreation on land and sea, provided me a most welcome respite from an overly busy schedule. Most highly recommend this unique and palatial home.Nestled high above its own private cove, with easy access to a dock and canoes/paddleboats, stands Spruce Cove.
