Spruce Head cottage description

Comfortable and peaceful cottage, pet friendly too, on a safe and quiet lane in Spruce Head Village with glorious, unrestricted and wide views over Seal Harbor beach. Southerly views of the ocean make the inside of the cottage bright, cheery and sunny. Within a two minute walk you will find a Fisherman's Shack to buy Fresh Crab and Lobster. Blue water sparkles between houses everywhere you stroll around the village. Rockland is a 10 minute drive away and offers world class restaurants and art galleries, including the famous Farnsworth Museum featuring many Wyeth and Winslow Homer works. The Mid-Coast area is situated perfectly for day trips to Pemaquid to the South and Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor to the North. Spruce Head is a traditional New England village with lobstering roots, and offers convenient sailboat and motorcraft moorings as well as easy staging points for Ocean Kayakers eager to explore the myriad islands of the Mussell Ridge Channel around Spruce Head. Please note that the pet deposit is cheerfully refunded after satisfactory inspection.



Guestbook Comments: 'I haven't been this relaxed in 5 years! I love Maine but especially Spruce Head and the Lobster Docks' G.L - N.Y.............*******************

'As I write we are packed up and ready to leave. We have had to drag ourselves from the deck and leave that beautiful view behind. We really could have sat there all day. We will certainly recommend your place here and this part of Maine'. Andrew and Irene E - Liverpool, England 8/15/2008*********
October 1st, 2010: 'First I must thank you both, John and Kate, for providing us with a lovely, quiet, comfy home for the week. As chief cook I was pleased at the well-equipped kitchen - it had everything we needed!'Helen and Fred L. - North Carolina **********
September 25th, 2010:''What was it that differentiated your place from the seemingly hundreds of others I looked at? It's usually a gut feeling and I was right again! Thanks for your special consideration and, hopefully, we'll be back!' Hank and Sue D., Massachusetts *********

A few more...: September 18th, 2010:'We've loved our relaxing week in your well-supplied cottage. Rockland area is Maine at its best and your cottage is in a well-placed spot for all sorts of pleasures in every direction - and it's a sweet place to come 'home' to at the end of each day's adventures' Gerry and Peter H, Gloucester, Mass********

July 10th, 2010:'As we hurry to tidy up - it is a bit sad to be leaving. The cottage was a warm and friendly place to rest and a nice home-away-from-home. Thanks for the tips and hints on the Lighthouses and especially Clark Island - spots we never would have found on our own. Great tips to help us have a good time. The fog of the last 3
days has been amazing and subduing at the same time. We know there is an ocean out there in front of us...just...over...there, but it is shrouded in a thick, moist off-white mist(that has got to be the bane of the local lobstermen) but endlessly fascinating to us.' Ed, Cindy, Jake and Teri S. Walled Lake, Michigan

Car: Recommended

This Classic Maine Cottage is situated in a safe, quiet and friendly Village Neighborhood, within walking distance of a Post Office, Church and small General Store. Spruce Head Island, attached to the Village of Spruce Head by a small bridge, has two fishing docks where lobster boats bring in their catch daily. Two miles away is the 'Gig', a typical Village store, (well-known for fresh lobster and crab-meat rolls), perched on the edge of the harbor, near the Reversing Falls. The harbor, or salt water estuary, is a popular spot where you can fish from the bridge or alongside the water's edge, casting your line for Stripers. Rockland, a 10 minute drive away, has become an art mecca with many galleries including the famous Farnsworth Museum housing Wyeth and Winslow Homer originals. Rockland has an old-fashioned brick-fronted downtown with an active waterfront and is the home of several three-masted schooners that take passengers on daily or weekly cruises along the coast of Maine.

Other Activities: Eating Lobster Dinners and homemade pies at 2 waterfront outdoor restaurants in the immediate area.
