Massachusetts-based family with a love for Maine!
Mike purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Mike chose Spruce Head
We love the amazing ocean views that surround you, the peaceful and private cove beach, the laid back atmosphere of the area, the excellent kayaking, the small shops and restaurants and the dozens of mid-coast Maine attractions and small sea-side towns all within a short drive and without the huge summer crowds.
What makes this Cottage unique
This cottage offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle. With a private sandy-rocky beach, excellent kayaking, walks around the island and sweeping views of the ocean from the deck or inside the living room you could spend days just poking about the cove and island. If you are feeling like exploring, in minutes you can be in several small villages like Damariscotta, Rockland, Camden, Tenants Harbor and all they have to offer which include wineries, summer festivals, unique Maine shops, fresh seafood and vegetables, beaches, hiking, ferries to near by islands, and so much, much more! Excellent restaurants like Primo (the chef was awarded James Beard '2013 Best Chef in the Northeast' award!), Café Miranda, Waterman Beach Lobster and Rockcity Café offer a wide variety of tastes and price ranges.

The cottage was so cute and coffee and wine on the deck was so relaxing.
Location, location, location ! The cottage was peaceful and serene. The views of the harbor were amazing, high and low tide were awesome to watch. We even saw bald eagles on several ocassions. It was only 2 minutes to Mcloon's and 20 minutes to Rockland. The cottage was very clean but could have used a queen bed. Greate place to gey away from everything. Kevin and Donna
Beautiful location and cozy cottage
We had a perfect quiet and restful week. I loved sitting on the porch and looking out over the beautiful ocean view as it changed with the tides and the weather. And every morning It was a delight to wake up to the sounds of the waves through the bedroom window.. I went on a lot of walks around Spruce Head and everyone was very friendly. It was an easy drive to wonderful coastal Maine towns like Rockland and Camden, but I enjoyed coming home to the quiet cozy cottage. Thank you for sharing your special place with us and thank you for being so dog friendly - our dogs loved the place too!! We’d all love to come back!
The view is spectacular.
The place was amazing. You walk in the front door and the ocean is looking right at you with big sliding glass doors. The place was immaculate.From every room, except the entrance,you could see the ocean, even in the bathroom. A very lovely place indeed. Close to Rockland for many shops and restaurants. Rockland is also the lobster capital of the world. We did not know that.You will not be disappointed.
Cute cottage perfect for what we wanted, quiet and cozy. Owners were great, hope to come again.
Cottage was clean and very well appointed.
We had a wonderful week. The cottage was perfect.
The cottage is aptly named as it was a beautiful, peaceful week. The views of the harbor and beyond were ever changing with the wind and the tides. We enjoyed late afternoons sitting on the rocks after our travels and the deck was perfect for meals and reading or just watching. The cottage was very comfortable with all that was needed to cook if you chose or just enjoy its comfort. We would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a picturesque, quiet getaway on the Maine coast. Thank you, Mike!
We absolutely loved it here!! The view was incredible and the house was in a perfect location!
We could have stayed in this house forever!! The view and location were the best part! The house was clean and had everything we needed. We loved being able to walk to McLoons lobster shack which was delicious! The hosts were wonderful and helpful as well. We will definitely be coming back in the future!!
The cottage is located just 10 minutes from all of the shops, stores and grocery you might need as well as many restaurants, galleries, wineries, state beach, lighthouse walk and the many Rockland Festivals that happen all summer. 2 miles away is the Waterman Beach Lobster Shack.
