Description of the Spruce Head vacation cottage rental
Quintessential Maine! Designed & decorated with care by a well-known artist. She fell in love with the property and dreams of living there one day. The cottage is simply elegant, easy to care for, warm, and inviting. You will feel like a welcome guest in a private home that you have all to yourself.

Planning a wedding or a family reunion? This cottage would be perfect for the newlyweds; we have other cottages available nearby for friends and family.

The site is a spectacular point of ocean front land with a beach, only for island residents, next door and a southeast view. Let your cares melt away as you gaze out over the sea. Smell the salt air, the balsam fir and the wild roses. Feel the cool breezes and, for the more adventurous, the invigorating shock of the cold ocean water. Listen to the soothing sound of the waves, the cry of gulls, and the sound of the lobster boats as they come and go to Atwood's Lobster across the bay. At dinner time you will start to see the twinkle of the lights, the glow of the evening sun reflecting off the boats on their moorings, and possibly the full moon rising over the water.

The cottage is fully equipped. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Well behaved dogs are welcome.

There is lots to see and do for people of all ages. The local restaurants are outstanding and if you like cooking you will love the quality and variety of foods and drink.

The cottage is very well insulated to make it warm and draft free in the winter, cool in the summer. It has been outfitted with a state of the art Life Breath Whole House Ventilation System for your comfort and health.

The cottage is currently undergoing improvements for Spring 2015 so it may not be available until Memorial Day. The owners are adding a new covered front porch and plans are underway to take better advantage of the view from the upstairs bedroom and living room. We will post photos as soon as they are available.

All rates are subject to change and do not include the damage deposit.
