SPRUCE HEAD LOBSTER VILLAGE, WATERFRONT 1 BDRM GUEST HOUSE

Spruce Head Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

VACATION THE

ROCKY COAST OF MAINE

This shore front one bedroom fully furnished cottage is nestled among spruce trees with decks overlooking the ocean and a salt-water cove, a very private and serene setting. It is located at Spruce Head, an island connected to the mainland by a causeway. From the decks, the tidal water can be watched. Tidal water means that there are ten feet of water at the water’s edge when the tide is in and a quarter mile of clam-flats when the tide is out. A great array of feeding birds of the sea and the shore can be observed such as; sandpipers, ducks, shags, seagulls and great blue herons. Harbor seals have been seen diving for breakfast or dinner.

Your fun-filled week may include visiting lighthouses, hiking, walking on the rocks and enjoying the beaches. You may also experience such excursions as whale and seal watching, schooner cruises or taking the ferry to one of our islands.

Within a fifteen minute drive is an eighteen-hole golf course with a view of the Atlantic Ocean. Camden Hills offer hiking trails with spectacular views of Penobscot Bay. You can rent a bike or enjoy an afternoon kayaking around the Muscle Ridge Islands. Kayak rentals are available locally, including day trips with a luncheon on one of the islands.

To appease your intellectual side, the Farnsworth Museum, the Shore Village Museum and the Owls Head Transportation Museum are also nearby. One can view paintings by Andrew Wyeth, lights from lighthouses, an air show, or attend an antique auto auction.

Our unique central location also allows for day trips to Arcadia National Park or the International Ferry Service to Nova Scotia, all located in Bar Harbor. In the opposite direction, Freeport offers the famous L.L. Bean store plus many outlet shops. But of course if you prefer to stay close to home on Spruce Head Island, we have many unique and quaint shops (including antique) in the downtowns of Rockland, Thomaston and Camden.

Dining out can also be a unique experience. Enjoy a lobster on one of the wharfs, a meal at a European bistro, or at one of many of our “Down East” restaurants, all located within a short driving distance. However, you may also dine in. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen that includes a microwave, gas grill, toaster, stove, refrigerator and coffee maker.

The cottage is available from May 1st through the end of October. It has one bedroom with a double bed and a queen size futon couch in the living room. You are required to furnish your own bath and bed linens. There is a TV with cable service, a radio/CD tape player, and wifi service for your convenience (all you need to bring is your mac number). There is also good cell phone reception. Laundry facilities are available in nearby Rockland or Thomaston.

A WEEK ON SPRUCE HEAD ISLAND

ONE YOU’LL REMEMBER

Our Maine adventure.

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed the cottage, It was clean, homey and well equipped. The kitchen was workable for those like myself who enjoy cooking. I would recommend this rental for couples, it is a small cottage and I think four would be a crowd. We were fine, two plus a dog. It would have been nice if there were a gate in front of the stairway on the front deck, in our case because of the dog, but if there were a young child, because of the fall hazard. We had a relaxing quiet week and would consider returning again. My only regret is we never meet the owners and they did not check to see if all was well during the week. We did also find the wifi connection pretty iffy, with a very weak signal that often cut out altogether. All in all, these are niggling complaints, and we enjoyed the stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your remarks. I like the idea about a gate at the steps. Most people left one of the Adirondack chairs next to the stairs, but the gate would be much better. Also, next year there will be better internet access in the rental- it will have its own vs. feeding off of ours at our house.

You are right about the size- it is more suited for two people but the option is there for those on a tight budget- especially someone with one child.

Sorry for not being able to meet you- especially since you live in the neck of the woods that I grew up in. We were inundated with family that week at our camp- it was my last week off before school started. I hope you will consider our place again so that I will have a chance to meet with you.

Wonderful Vacation in Maine

  • 5 of 5
This was our first vacation in Maine and we were NOT disappointed. The Guest House was spotless, well equipped and very comfortable. The location was wonderful and very private, yet easy access to everything we wanted to see and do. There are many wonderful sights and activities within a short driving distance.

I definitely give this a "thumbs up" and hope to return next year.

Peaceful time in Maine

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at Spruce Head this summer! It was a peaceful get-away and everything we hoped it would be. The apartment is cozy and comfortable with lovely breezes coming in from the water. When my daughter left her little box of "treasures" (sea shells and the like), Donna was nice enough to mail it back to us. Thanks so much, Donna! We loved our first vacation to Maine and know it won't be our last.

Lobster Land

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I recently spent a week in this cottage/loft/apartment in what we now call Lobster Land. While the loft space above a garage was very comfortable and adequate for the 2 of us we think it would be a real sqeeze for more than 2 people. We were disappointed in the view. The description talked about being surrounded by water with the ocean on one side and a cove on the other. While this was in some ways true we could not in fact see the water in either direction, The cove side has large spruce trees that are very close to the building thereby blocking the view. The ocean is in fact a couple hundred yards away on the other side with a forested area and road between the cottage and the water. Shortly after our arrival the owner showed up to set us up with the included free Wi Fi. While it did work it was very spotty and in fact most times we had to either be out on the back deck or in the bedroom to make it work. The dock that is associated with the cottage is attached to the deck of the house next door which is where the owners live. As the owners were away themselves for the first part of our stay we did sit on the dock somtimes but we felt a little intrusive to use it when they were home even though I think we were welcome to do so. I realize that this review sounds negative but overall we had a good time and were quite comfortable. The Maine Coast Seafood Wharf is right there where we bought fresh lobster daily and their staff was very heplful with all my questions about the lobster and seafood industry as well as cooking instructions. Another must see is the Maine State Prison Craft Store in Thomaston. Lobster rolls from Reds Eats in Wiscasset and Scallop and Haddock meals from Roselyns in Rockland were culinary highlights. A schooner ride from the public dock in Camden was a very enjoyable way to spend a couple hours. We enjoyed a few hours at the Transportation Museum in Owls head as well as a very good burger at the Owls Head General Store.
As you can see food was an important part of our trip and in that area we did very well in Lobster Land.

The Real Maine

  • 5 of 5
Everything was perfect for us - true peace and quiet with nice breezes and lovely walks. Yet easy access to Rockland, Rockport, Camden, Tenent's Harbor, Port Clyde and Thomaston.
Hosts were wonderful and the garage apartment had glimpses on the water in all four directions. It was very clean and included everything we needed.
Nice local things to do also - Lobster Dinner Benefit and Fireworks in Tenent's Harbor, Pot Luck at Prince George Grange Hall, Dessert Cruise at Port Clyde, free Wed night at Farnsworth, and even free dance performance at the theatre in downtown Rockland. Many close-by small beaches.
Lobster accross the street and a great used book store, Lobster Lane Books.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your visit!! I love the Lobster Lane Bookstore- it is one of the best used bookstores around. The dessert cruise out of Port Clyde sounds fun, we've never been on it. Something to look forward to.

Thanks again for staying with us, David enjoyed the trip to the quarry and swimming with the two of you.

Our week at Spruce Head

  • 5 of 5
Spent a lovely week at this adorable place. Comfortable, clean, modern well maintained and quiet. Donna and David are wonderful and helpful. Enjoyed food from Jess's market in Owls' Head. Spent lots of time at the beach at Birch Point Park and had scrumptious dinners at "the Big Fish" in Rockland.
Rainy day activities included a visit to the Farnsworth Museum filled iwth Wyeth paintings. And don't for get to grab a Wasses Hot Dog in Rockland. Can't wait to return to Spruce Head.

Owner's Response: Hi Pat,

Glad that you enjoyed your stay- You certainly visited some wonderful places in our area. I love Birch Point Park- walking the sandy beach and kayaking from its shore. The Farnsworth is another excellent venue, especially if there is rain. I would suggest a walk on the breakwater with a visit to the lighthouse there. On Mondays, you get to see the schooners leaving on their trip from the breakwater- it is a sight to see.
