Spruce Head cottage description

Cottage is directly on the water next to Atwood's Lobster Co-op, a working waterfront with boats and trucks coming and going. Sit on the deck and fish or high five a lobsterman. The cottages are close to each other but inside you'll have lots of room to spread out and it is fully equipped. Lots of privacy for two couples or for a family with older children. Two bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, each with its own bathroom and living room. Large eat in kitchen with an expansive view of the harbor and the Atwood Lobster Company wharf. Sit inside by a crackling fire or barbeque outside on the large deck. Snuggle up on the brand new mattresses, new goose down coverlets & pillows. Internet and basic cable TV, washer/dryer included. The living room furniture is also brand new. Pets owners considered but we are very strict about pets on the beds and furniture. There is room for large gatherings but due to the proximity to the ocean, there is only fresh water enough for 4 people max
Very Convenient to Local Attractions
Cottage is very convenient to local attractions and to a wide variety of day trips. 10-15 Minutes to Downtown Rockland, 1/2 hour to Camden, 2 hours to Acadia National Park, 2 hours from Portland, and only minutes away from beaches, restaurants, local markets, shopping, etc. Do you love to cook? The little shops & farmstands sell fresh spices by the spoonful, exotic olive oils, and an amazing variety of aromatic balsamic vinegars. There are things you can't easily purchase even in some cities. Some of the local restaurants are amazing - check them out online.

Let me know what you like to do when you book your reservation or call when you arrive. I would be happy to help you out.

                  Manager info

                  About: I am managing this rental for the former owners of Atwood Lobster. They wanted to provide an affordable rental so that others could enjoy the Maine Coast. The owners and I love Maine. We're all true Mainers but are well travelled. There are other beautiful places in the world but there are none more beautiful than Maine.

                  Why Spruce Head:
                  It is a wonderful place to live and work.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  If you like activity, people watching, bird watching, etc, this would be a fun cottage for you. The cottage is close enough to Atwood's wharf to watch the lobstermen come and go, yet it is far enough away to ensure some privacy. You will actually be living on an island. It is close enough to the mainland to be reached by bridge but it is an island nevertheless. It has the atmosphere of an island and that old Maine flavor. The Rockland area is rugged, beautiful, and also sophisticated. You can watch a movie at the Strand Cinema while sipping on a glass of wine for a very reasonable price. Some of the restaurants are outstanding. If you like to cook, you will be in heaven. There is more available in this small corner of Maine than there is in most US cities.
