Overview

About the property

Absolutely Charming 3BR/2BA Home just Minutes from the Beach Sleeps 6

Maine is called 'Vacationland'--Mt. Desert Island, home of Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park, is an incredibly beautiful place where people come to relax, to play and to appreciate all that nature has to offer. 'Spruce Lodge at Hadley Point' has been designed so that you and your family can stay in a wonderful and comfortable environment while you explore and experience all the beauty that surrounds you! Our charming 3-level home has a bright, open floor plan where the living room, dining area & kitchen share one big space on the main level. Just down the hall is a lovely bedroom, full bath and laundry room. Upstairs is a private loft with a balcony and large separate bedroom. Downstairs there is the family room with game table, beverage refrigerator and a really CUTE bedroom that we call 'The Rose Room' and another spacious full bath. Spruce green (of course) is our theme color & it accents 'miles' of natural pine, fun wallpapers & clean painted walls! The furniture, dishes, art & collectibles were chosen with the Maine Woods in mind!

Activities:: The beach at Hadley Point which is only a block away is a public area where you can launch a boat, have picnics, sunbathe, skip rocks and watch for seals and other wildlife. This is a favorite spot for the kayak rental companies to start and end their day trips-it's fun to watch them come and go- you might want to join them! You can swim, boat, hike and ride bikes on your own or go out on a whale-watching tour or sunset cruise on Frenchman's Bay. There are fantastic restaurants, great shopping and even mini golf courses nearby. There is an awesome 'Art Deco' movie theater called 'The Criterion' located in downtown Bar Harbor and two evenings a week there are band concerts on the Village Green. Several art shows are held during the summer and cruise ships come into the harbor weekly! Mt. Desert Island is truly an Unforgettable Place with something for Everyone!

About Lorie Wiebrecht

I was born in Bar Harbor and my entire family lives or works only 5 minutes from our rental homes. My husband was born in Wisconsin and he fell in love with MDI the first time I took him there in 1996. He knew even before I did that we MUST have our own property there so that we would always have an excuse to go north whenever we could!

Mt. Desert Island is such a beautiful place - we both are so thankful that we can experience it many times a year and I must say that we are struck by the beauty and the solitude every time we go 'home.'

We hope that you truly have a wonderful time whether it is your first experience or you have been visiting for 20 years.

My Dad's motto is...'If you come to Maine one time it won't be your last time.' Of course he is pretty bias on the subject - having lived in Bar Harbor all his life! I wish everyone could get one of his Island tours-they are awesome to say the least!

He started working as a chauffeur at age 15 and he can tell some stories. He and my Mom owned several restaurants and motels and even developed the largest campground on the Island, Bar Harbor Campground which my youngest brother now manages.

Seems like our family has been in the hospitality trade forever and...with all that experience we have certainly learned how to take good care of our guests!

Lorie Wiebrecht purchased this house in 2002

Comfort and Space for a Family of Six

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a week at Spruce Lodge for the past two years. The home is immaculate and well stocked with everything you could possibly need for a wonderful Maine vacation, including a lobster pot with its own propane burner and all the plates and utensil you need for a lobster dinner, (including the bibs!). We are a family with 4 kids under the age of 12 and there was plenty of room and things to do even when the weather was inclement. It is conveniently located near Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and Schoonic Peninsula. Hadley Point is a short walk and we were able to build a campfire and enjoy dinner right on the beach. .The owner is a pleasure to deal with and goes out of her way to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. We look forward to returning to Spruce Lodge.

Thank you for a wonderful vacation

With each year that goes by I try to get even more sensitive to your needs as travelers and it is so rewarding to hear that it is working!! Thank you so much! We would love to have you stay with us soon. If you have any questions or comments please call me. Lorie

Fantastic spot - easy to access island attractions

  • 5 of 5

Spruce Lodge was the perfect set-up for our family. My husband and I visited with our three little ones and his parents. My in-laws liked having their own space on the ground floor with a private bedroom and full bath. My husband and I used the main floor bedroom with our infant son and my two daughters shared the loft bedroom.

We had gorgeous weather so we spent most of the days out hiking and exploring. It was nice to have a home base for breakfast in the morning and dinners together at night. Hadley Point beach is walking distance from the house and was great for sunsets, campfires and shell collecting. Lorie has thought of everything and the house is very clean and in great condition. It was very centrally located and easy to get to all the attractions the island offers. So much better than a hotel to share nice meals together and even when a little one was napping you could enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the beautiful porch. We hope to back again soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you!!! I also think that this is a great house for several generations on vacation. There is enough space to gather everyone together for meals, TV and game time and general conversation. AND...it also has a perfect floor plan so that everyone has enough space to have some private time. Being close to the beach is an added bonus. We have beach chairs and toys for little ones. You can have a day full of fun and relaxation and you don't even have to leave the area. YAY! We have 3 vacation rentals and they are all quite close to the beach. If the days that you like are booked in one house I have options for you! Please give me a call so that I can help you with your vacation plans. I know that you would be happy with the quality and service that we provide! Thank you!

Owner's Response: You will notice that this is a duplicate review! That's OK...it gives me another opportunity to respond. It also shows me how dedicated this guest was to getting her review online! :-) We have 3 vacation rentals on the Island-all on the Bar Harbor side. We take great pride in keeping them in good condition with current improvements and tasteful decor. We have been painting, adding AC, improving the lawns, trimming the trees and this summer we are resurfacing all of the driveways. Paying attention to these details makes for a great presentation and everyone who stays with us knows that we are committed to providing the very best for our guests. We would love to help you plan your next trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Feel free to call anytime. Thank you.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

The Spruce Lodge at Hadley Point is located in the perfect spot to explore Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park. On the northern tip of the island, with a leisurely stroll down to Hadley's Point Beach, it is also just a short drive to Bar Harbor, and convenient to Southwest and Northeast Harbor and also to Trenton, where the Trenton Lobster Pound is located. Speaking of lobster, we must have enjoyed it just about every day! The owner was thoughtful enough to provide a large lobster pot and propane burner. From the pot to the picnic table on the deck in @12 minutes, a gourmet treat!

The Lodge was so well stocked, we kept trying to see if there was just one supply item that wasn't there, and we never could, as everything we needed was there, a wonderful consideration for guests!

From this perfect location, we explored Acadia National Park, hiked the Wonderland Trail, the Jordan Pond Path (with dinner and popovers at Jordan Pond House), took a half day trip to the Schoodic Peninsula (beautiful!), rode bikes on the Carriage Roads, went fishing and lobster hunting from Bass Harbor, took a leisurely stroll through Asticou Gardens, and then a drink and an appetizer at the Asticou Inn. The hike across the Bar Island trail at low tide is a must-do (see how Bar Harbor got it its name). A carry-out lobster dinner from C-Rays (across the street from the lodge) was a perfect way to end our last day.

We definitely recommend this vacation to anyone interested in the natural beauty of Maine, and the accommodations and hospitality of the owner made this vacation one of the most memorable we have ever had. Many thanks!

Owner's Response: You know...some reviews are so touching...I really appreciate that guests take the time to write them! I not only enjoy the nice things that they say about me (of course!) but I am also thrilled that they love our Island and our National Park and that they feel truly spoiled just by being here. It really is so special and having grown up on MDI you might think that it is "old hat" for me however I just LOVE driving over the bridge to the Island just like those who do it for the first time. This guest identified so many great places to visit and fun things to do...this is a wonderful place to make lots of memories with your friends and family. We have lots of openings in all 3 of our vacation rentals this season especially in the fall. Would love to have you come and stay with us so that you can witness the spectacular show of color that will be mixed in with the majestic evergreens. It is a photographer's dream come true! Happy Vacationing!!

Even better than everyone says!

  • 5 of 5

This was easily the nicest location we have ever rented. Not only was everything one would need is there, is is high quality and very well maintained. We travelled with our daughters family and the downstairs apartment was perfect for us. Every detail was tastefully done and very inviting. The customer service was beyond compare. We would highly recommend Spruce Lodge to Friends and family (and anyone else who asked!) Add all that to Acadia and it was a wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: Lovely review~it makes me smile! These guests were so looking forward to treating their family to a beautiful vacation and it sounds like their wish came true. She contacted me several times to say that they were doing GREAT and squeezing as much as they could into a few days. It doesn't matter how long you stay...there is always too much to do and that is fine with me because everyone always wants to come back! There is always another trail that you want to explore, another kayak trip that you want to take or another kind of seafood that you want to try. Not to mention farmer's markets and blueberry pie and craft shows and the lobster festival and sunset cruises and whale-watching trips! We have guests that have been coming every year for 13 years in a row and this year they are staying for 4 weeks. Unbelievable~I want to be them! :-) Someone asked me once if her family was going to get bored?? I don't think so! Bring your love of nature to beautiful Acadia National Park and know...that we would love to have you stay with us! Hope to see you soon. Thank you!

We arrived to find a cozy cottage with everything you could possibly need for a perfect vacation, there were clean, neat comfortable bedrooms, a kitchen stocked with staples for cooking, nice flat screen TV's for a cold rainy day, blankets on each couch to cuddle up and so much more!

The host of this house offers you so much great information to help you get the most out of your stay.

We visited Acadia National Park, Cadillac mountain, so beautiful! Bar Harbor, great restaurants, walked the sandbar for shells and wildlife as well as a whale watching excursion.

There is a beach 3 minutes down the hill from the cottage with the best view, this cottage is the perfect location.

I think we ate lobster and blueberry pie 3 meals a day and never got tired of it!

This was a great family vacation with lots to do and such friendly locals,

Thanks!
