VACATION THE ROCKY COAST OF MAINE
This ocean front two bedroom fully furnished home is nestled among spruce trees with a deck and dock overlooking the ocean and a salt-water cove, a very private and serene setting. It is located at Spruce Head, an island connected to the mainland by a causeway. From the deck, the tidal water can be watched. Tidal water means that there are ten feet of water at the water’s edge when the tide is in and a quarter mile of clam-flats when the tide is out. A great array of feeding birds of the sea and the shore can be observed such as; sandpipers, ducks, shags, seagulls and great blue herons. Harbor seals have been seen diving for breakfast or dinner.
Your fun-filled week may include visiting lighthouses, hiking, walking on the rocks and enjoying the beaches. You may also experience such excursions as whale and seal watching, schooner cruises or taking the ferry to one of our islands.
Within a fifteen minute drive is an eighteen-hole golf course with a view of the Atlantic Ocean. Camden Hills offer hiking trails with spectacular views of Penobscot Bay. You can rent a bike or enjoy an afternoon kayaking around the Muscle Ridge Islands. Kayak rentals are available locally, including day trips with a luncheon on one of the islands.
To appease your intellectual side, the Farnsworth Museum, the Shore Village Museum and the Owls Head Transportation Museum are also nearby. One can view paintings by Andrew Wyeth, lights from lighthouses, an air show, or attend an antique auto auction.
Our unique central location also allows for day trips to Arcadia National Park or the International Ferry Service to Nova Scotia, all located in Bar Harbor. In the opposite direction, Freeport offers the famous L.L. Bean store plus many outlet shops. But of course if you prefer to stay close to home on Spruce Head Island, we have many unique and quaint shops (including antique) in the downtowns of Rockland, Thomaston and Camden.
Dining out can also be a unique experience. Enjoy a lobster on one of the wharfs, a meal at a European bistro, or at one of many of our “Down East” restaurants, all located within a 15 minute drive. However, you may wish to dine in- it has a fully equipped kitchen that includes a microwave, gas grill, toaster, stove, refrigerator and coffee maker. You can also get cooked lobsters at the wharf at the end of the lane to eat at home.
Whispering Spruce is available from June 1st through the end of October. It has two bedrooms with queen size beds in each. Bath towels and bed linens are provided for your convenience. There is a large flat screen TV with cable service, and wifi service for your convenience. There is also good cell phone reception.
