About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
12 feet from the high tide line. On amazingly beautiful Lobster Cove, Spruce Head Island. Looking across the channel to Vinalhaven in the distance. Amazing climate, cool sea breezes. The cottage is compact, with full bath, kitchen, and living area. Sitting on the porch, you can see the action on the water from sailboats and windjammers to lobster fishermen and the yachts of amazingly rich people. The cottage is 20 minutes away from Rockland, Maine, the home of the Lobster Festival and the best home made ice cream in the world at Dorman's on Route 1. Owl's Head Airport, twenty minutes away, provides commercial air service to Boston several times a day.
Because the family uses the cottage year-round, there is ample insulation and heat for the chilly evenings. Fresh lobster is available within ten minutes walking distance. The experience really can't be beat.

Battie State Park with beautiful hiking and photographing opportunities. Bay Chamber Concerts, Rockland Blues Festival, summer Fairs, the list is endless.
Year Purchased: 1954
About the owner: We now have the third generation in our family coming to this cottage.
Why the Owner Chose Spruce Head, South Thomaston, ME, USA:
The cottage is a few miles off Route 1, making it easy to access. Owl's Head Airport has commercial service to Boston and is twenty minutes away. Yet the road ends here. No one is 'just passing through' because the island is on the way to nowhere. Sometimes it rains. When it does, there is plenty to do within a forty minute drive, from antique shopping to watching the working waterfront of Rockland.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Sit at the dining table and look across the water at the loons fishing early in the morning. The sunrise is not to be missed, surpassed only by the sunset.
