Hi, I'm Jan!

My brothers, sister and I grew up spending summers in Spruce Head. Two of my brothers settled in the local area, becoming lobster fishermen. Although I live in a lovely Vermont village where I work as a school administrator, my heart is still on the ocean where I spend as much time as possible.

Here are my properties:

Yes, it is right on the ocean!

Jewel on Penobscot Bay

Our stay at the North Cottage in Sprucehead Me was everything we hoped for and more. We started planning this trip in January with great anticipation and were not disappointed. The cottage was well equipped and spacious. The views from every room were breathtaking especially the great room. The sunrises were outstanding most mornings right from the deck. What a wonderful location for everything we had on our wish list. A great surprise was the Thomaston Café. Excellent food and very friendly owner and waitresses. We will remember this vacation for ever and hope someday to return to the North Cottage. Thanks to the Baines Family for allowing us to share their jewel on the bay. Butch & Betty Young

Clean, Quiet, Relaxing and Penobscot Bay views

What a beautiful location. We stayed in the Gray Cottage for the week after Labor Day Weekend and found it very clean, fully equipped and with great bayside views. Waking early to watch the sunrise off the deck with morning coffee was especially enjoyable as was the rest of the Sprucehead Island, Rockland and Port Clyde area. The Baines family was very hospitable and made sure we were satisfied with the accommodations. A week goes by pretty quick and we wished that we could have stayed for two! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation getaway and loves being on the ocean's edge. Jan and Bob - thank you! Jamie E.
