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:

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.

very nice spot on the rocky Maine coast

The house is right on the rocky shore of a quiet bay, with a lovely island view. We enjoyed watching local lobstermen tending their traps and a few sailboats in the bay...even a couple of container ships and a large fishing vessel way out past the closer islands. (You need binoculars for this.) We managed to hit several of the wonderful local eateries, though their hours were somewhat limited during our September vacation; most seem to be closing at the end of the month. We shared the cottage with another couple and found that it worked well. The first floor bedroom is obviously the prize spot, and whoever is lucky enough to get it can watch the moon and the sunrise over the water right from their bed. Lots of "touristy" things are within a comfortable drive. We did a few of them,but were mostly happy staying put. Except, of course for going out for lobstah, clams, and more lobstah.
