Why Sandy Retzlaff chose Spruce Head
Cliff and I love Maine. We have been vacationing here for 15 years and eventually found the perfect home on a quiet bay with incredible views. We love to cook so we delight in the fresh produce and seafood here. We adore the local people and the culture of having a working lobster community right off our dock. There is always something interesting to do or see. And the sunsets are gorgeous - so we plan our day around being on the deck in time for sunset. We offer this property for rent only on a limited basis when we are traveling.
What makes this House unique
We lovingly rehabbed this home 2 years ago. Everything in the house comes from Maine craftspeople-- from the local Red Birch Hardwood Floors, to the Granite Counter tops from the Quarry up north, to the Slate floors, to the beautifully handcrafted kitchen cabinets. This is the quote we get from our guests every time. ---"These views and the home are spectacular-the best I have ever seen in Maine and the house is so comfortable! We loved it!" We love it and are sure you will too.

Stunning Coastal Maine Property
We rented this house in late June. It has beautiful views, the sunset is the best while basking on the small side porch/deck sipping your glass of wine. The house easily accommodates 6 people. There is a fully equipped kitchen with new appliances. You can wash & dry your clothes in the laundry, or possibly you might wish to hang them on the clothes line to dry in the sun with the island breezes. The house is cozy and comfortable; you could easily curl up and read in the attractive living room or on one of two outdoor porches. The bedrooms and bathrooms are wonderful, new, and nicely decorated. There are beautiful outdoor gardens full of perennials and a sumptuous vegetable & herb garden.
We loved every minute of our stay at Sandy & Cliff's house. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone.
As Beautiful As It Looks!
We stayed at "Aurora" in August and I must say that it was absolutely one of the best vacation homes we have ever rented. The house is so well designed and decorated -- an absolute treat to spend time in. If you enjoy cooking (even on vacation!), the kitchen is a gem. And the setting right on the water is beautiful, with two decks to enjoy the view of the Maine coast. From years as experienced renters, we know that not all houses live up to their pictures online -- this one does, and more! The owners have created a special home, which feels so very "Maine" in all the best ways, and we felt lucky to share it.
Spruce Head Island is also well located for exploring mid-coast Maine. Rockland, Camden, Port Clyde, Tenants Harbor -- lots of options for daytrips around the beauty of the Maine coastline. This is a great spot for first timers to the Maine coastline as well as those of us who already know and love its charms!
The place to be in the Summer. The world awaits you. Hiking, kayaking, sailing, lighthouse touring, and walking. Wonderful restaurants and shopping in the picturesque towns of Rockland and Camden, just a 15 drive from the House. Fresh seafood, farmers markets abound for a great in home meal. Don't forget the lobster! Dozens of lighthouses and parks nearby for sight seeing along the coast. I love Waterman's Beach Lobster, day trips to Monhegan Island, renting a day-sail boat in Rockland, and hiking in Camden Hills State Park.
