Stonington hotel description

The Stone House is run as an inn from early May through late June, and from after Labor Day through end of October. During the summer, it is rented in its entirety by the week to families for vacations. Later in the fall, it is open as a hunting lodge for both duck hunting and deer hunting. Come alone or as a couple in the off season and you may want to rent the whole place in the summer for a family reunion.

Spruce Island is a small, 80 acre private island 3 miles off Deer Isle/Stonington, Maine. An aerial video of Spruce Island can be found at the bottom of this page.

There are many places to explore and things to do on and around the island. There are a couple of miles of hiking trails around the island. Kayaks and row boats are available for rent; enjoy campfires on the shore; drive golf balls into the ocean and collect them at low tide; swim in the ocean, or in a fresh water quarry on near-by Green Island (water-taxi charge applies). Watch beautiful sunsets, and sunrises. Watch lobstermen plying the waters off Spruce Island. See and stand where the Native Americans did centuries ago collecting shellfish for the winter and leaving beautiful beaches of crushed shell called shell middens.

The Stone House is comprised of two separate buildings. The Main House is a large open room with cathedral ceilings, a huge fireplace, and a library of old classics and unusual books. A swing hangs from the timbers in the main house, and a “crows nest” on the roof affords spectacular views of the surrounding islands. On rainy days and at night, you can watch movies on the big screen and listen to surround sound music in the main house.

The Guest House contains six bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Electricity is supplied by wind and solar. Water is supplied from wells and a large rain water cistern.

This property is completely 'off the grid', but wifi is available through Hughesnet satellite connection and cell phone service is available.

Kayaks, row boats, and a small outboard motor boat are available for rent.

Spruce Island falls within the town of Stonington, Maine, famous for fresh maine lobster and for the pink maine granite that has been cut from its quarries for more than a hundred years. Spruce was quarried in the late 1800's and the stone house and guest house, both built of huge granite blocks, is in keeping with this history.

Transportation to and from the island is included in the room charge and is provided either in the spruce island landing craft that goes up on the shore like an old wwii higgins boat, or in an amphibious craft that can drive on land or cruise on water. These boats can be hired with captain to take you around merchants row and deer isle thoroughfare to explore the many beautiful, uninhabited islands in the area.
