About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath With Separate Efficiency Apt For Your Visiting Guests

For weekly rental - Updated year round house set on a 2 acre hilltop setting overlooking the small fishing/ lobstering village of Spruce Head .

The entire front of the house has large picture windows with panoramic views of the ocean and the islands beyond.

Newly installed Maine hardwood floors through the living room and bedrooms . Large living room with separate TV sitting area and gas fireplace with Maine granite surround, for those cool spring, summer, and fall evenings. If you choose to experience Maine in the winter, you can look out over the frozen harbor with lobster boats manuevering the frozen waters, to catch those succulent Maine lobsters while you are sitting in a toasty warm house.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need and on the back deck, you will have a propane gas lobster steamer to cook your lobsters and clams.

The dining room seats 8 to 10 and the first of the front decks, off the dining room, offers a gas grill and outside dining for 6 to 8 people. And after dinner, step down a few steps onto the new semi circular deck with lounge chairs and couches to enjoy your after dinner drink or coffee.

The house has 2 bedrooms. . The master has a queen mattress and the second bedroom has twin beds both with new mattresses . For those overflow guests or the grown children, there is additional sleeping in the efficiency apt over the garage. There is a double bed and a single bed, as well as a kitchenette and shower bath. This bonus space has the same amazing views as the house !!

There is a 2 car garage for use and a apple tree from which you can enjoy a tasty snack.

Take a walk down the end of the driveway to have lunch or dinner at McLoons Lobster Shack , an outdoor eatery with local lobster, clams, oysters, chowders and homemade pies.

Bring you kayaks; there are plenty of places to put them in and the coast is a great place to tour. You may see seals, osprey and bald eagles as you paddle the bay.

The mid coast area is a hub of activity with festivals, gourmet restaurants, museums, art galleries, and plenty of gift shops with locally made Maine items.

About Sally Ricker DiMaggio

I am a 4 th generation summer resident in this area. My sisters and I own a summer cottage a few miles down the road which has been in our family for over 100 years.

I met my husband, here, while he was building a log cabin down the road from the cottage. We have enjoyed the cabin and our children have grown up with summers in Maine as well.

Our family finds Spruce Head, So Thomaston a very special place.

Sally Ricker DiMaggio purchased this house in 2015

Why Sally Ricker DiMaggio chose Spruce Head

We visited this house a few years ago with friends. We were overwhelmed by the views, as we walked thru the door. When it went on the market, we could not have moved any faster to make it our future retirement home.

It is just so gorgeous and peaceful !

Spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this beautiful home on Spruce Head Island. The views from the house are incredible, even during a summer thunderstorm. Watching the fog and mist come in off the water was amazing. The house is so comfortable and Sally has provided everything needed to make this a relaxing stay. It felt like we were staying in the home of good friends. We enjoyed walking to McLoon's many times for lobster rolls - the best! We had visited Spruce Head several years ago so we spent several days just relaxing at the house, watching the lobster boats unload their catch and taking pictures from the deck. An added plus is that it's pet friendly. We were so glad we could take our lab with us on this vacation. Hope to return next year.

Comfortable house with everything you could need! Close to restaurants, shopping etc. but far enough away to feel peaceful. We're here in the fall but can see how the summer in Maine is probably fabulous!

We had a wonderful vacation here. Everywhere you look there's something of beauty to behold in Mother Nature. We were so lucky to have perfect weather all week. The home itself is very comfortable and has all the emenities. Also loved all the updates in the house. The added deck with firepit was awesome! We would definitely want to come back again!

Quintessential Maine!

  • 5 of 5

After renting over 35 houses and apartments world-wide, this is by far our favorite. We started renting this house 6 years ago for weeks every summer and it has just been improved every year by the owners. It's comfortable, easy, accessible to everything needed or wanted - from activities to culture to shopping to serenity - to ultimate beauty of the gorgeous Maine coast. The house is the best - equipped of any we have ever rented and the owners are so accommodating and thoughtful. It's too bad that Homeaway has ruined the experience for both renter and landlord.

All the comforts in a splendid setting!

  • 5 of 5

This is a special place. The house is lovely, with plenty of space to gather both inside and out. There are two comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen is equiped with everything you will need. And the two level deck makes it easy to spend the day taking in the salt air and views of the working waterfront, out over the islands and all the way to the horizon. Best of all, in our case, was the efficiency apartment over the garage where our grown son and his young family enjoyed the same view and just the right ammount of separation which worked out so much better than a larger house. As for location, find Spruce Head on the map and it will tell you all you need to know.

This property and vacation home at Spruce Head is absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Even though a few days were cloudy, it was the perfect setting to kick back and relax. The house was very comfortable and cozy, with a lovely decor and all possible amenities! We especially enjoyed the gorgeous views, views, views, McLoon's tastey lobsters, the beautiful spacious decks with a fire pit, and the proximity of nearby coastal towns. Thank you Sally Ricker DiMaggio for your hospitality and a wonderful experience!!!

Enjoy many festivals in Rockland: .North Atlantic Blues Fest, Lobster Festival and more. While Camden hosts the 4th of July fireworks and Schooner Days.
