SPRUCE HEAD ISLAND, PENOBSCOT BAY SHOREFRONT COTTAGE

Spruce Head Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

12 feet from the high tide line. On amazingly beautiful Lobster Cove, Spruce Head Island. Looking across the channel to Vinalhaven in the distance. Amazing climate, cool sea breezes. The cottage is compact, with full bath, kitchen, and living area. Sitting on the porch, you can see the action on the water from sailboats and windjammers to lobster fishermen and the yachts of amazingly rich people. The cottage is 20 minutes away from Rockland, Maine, the home of the Lobster Festival and the best home made ice cream in the world at Dorman's on Route 1. Owl's Head Airport, twenty minutes away, provides commercial air service to Boston several times a day.

Because the family uses the cottage year-round, there is ample insulation and heat for the chilly evenings. Fresh lobster is available within ten minutes walking distance. The experience really can't be beat.

We now have the third generation in our family coming to this cottage.

Clifford Dacso purchased this cottage in 1954

The cottage is a few miles off Route 1, making it easy to access. Owl's Head Airport has commercial service to Boston and is twenty minutes away. Yet the road ends here. No one is 'just passing through' because the island is on the way to nowhere.

Sometimes it rains. When it does, there is plenty to do within a forty minute drive, from antique shopping to watching the working waterfront of Rockland.

Sit at the dining table and look across the water at the loons fishing early in the morning. The sunrise is not to be missed, surpassed only by the sunset.

BEAUTIFUL MAINE CABIN

  • 5 of 5
We like to have a mix of access to outdoor activities and a quiet, peaceful home base to relax, make food and enjoy lovely views. This cabin does both! Great location to kayak, get to small towns, and do more ambitious day trips --- such as the ferry to Monhegan for hiking along beautiful cliffs. Highly recommended! Local lobster eatery within walking distance -- McLoons -- a gem!

Cabin is outfitted for a comfortable stay, and is right on the water in a quiet area. Family owner is a delight to work with in making arrangements. We highly recommend this cabin!

QUINTISSENTIAL MAINE

  • 5 of 5
This cabin has all the best of Maine in one small place.
We enjoyed the quiet there on the edge of the water. Great view of Lobster Cove with a small commercial fleet and many small private boats. Island was perfect for walking and the Lobster Pound on the other side of the island was very convenient.
Close to Rockland and Port Clyde, we were able to do easy day trips without much traffic, yet we could get to Camden or Wiscasset easily. Many fine restaurants were within 30 minute drive.
Cabin is stocked thoughtfully for guests and we were able to enjoy meals at home.
Excellent site for a couple or small family in a community environment.

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
My family (including an 8 year old and 4 year old) spent a week at this cottage in late June through early July. It was a fantastic trip. The location of the cottage couldn't have been better. It was literally a few steps from the water. The view was of a small cove. We spent our time exploring the area, by foot, car, and kayak. The neigbhors were friendly and added to the sense of vacationing with the locals.

The cabin was perfect. It had a great rustic feel but with all the necessities for a comfortable stay. I don't think the pictures captured the cozy feel of the cabin. It was clean and well-maintained.

I recommend this cabin without reservation to anyone looking to get away for a while and enjoy nature and explore Maine alone or with their family or friends.

WONDERFUL TIME ... WONDERFUL LOCATION !!!

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed our time at the cottage. We fell asleep and woke every day to the sounds of the water hitting the rocks or the rain (infrequently) hitting the metal roof. The location is perfect, private and right on the water but at the same time a very short drive to both Rockland and Camden.

Walking distance to a lobster pound and to a wholesaler where you could buy your own lobsters for $4 a pound !! A wonderful bookstore open on the weekends, great bicycling and sea kayaking right from the comfort of your own cottage.

The owner was incredibly helpful leading up to our stay and even went out of his way when we found that the local dump permit was mistakenly missing from the cottage.

GREAT VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (including a 4 year old and 8 year old) recently returned from a week-long vacation in Spruce Head Island at this fantastic cottage.

The cottage is located on the water (literally 10-15 feet from the shore). We sat on the deck and watched our kids search for shells and skip rocks for hours all the while enjoying the incredible views of the sea. We used the 2 kayaks to explore the coast and do a little fishing. We met the friendly neighbors (including lobstermen from whom we bought fresh lobsters as they came back on their boats).

The cottage is an easy 15-20 minutes from the heart of Rockland, where there are lots of restaurants, shops and museums/galleries. We took day trips to Boothbay and Bar Harbor, but we were always relieved to get back to the more peaceful Spruce Head.

The cottage has lots of character and all the essentials for a relaxing and fun family vacation.
