Spruce Point Inn
Fog horns, sea breezes, lobstah, sailing, quaint cottages and summer s’mores. This is Poshbrood’s fave type of summer getaway. Spruce Point Inn in Boothbay Harbor, Maine offers all of it. The scenic four-diamond Inn overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and offers Classic Maine cottages, lodge accommodations, condominiums and hotel rooms.
Poshbrood stayed in a quaint clapboard cottage with three small children and had the most relaxing vacation we can remember. We had a partial view of the ocean and were steps away from the fresh water pool, playground and rec center. The Inn has a full service spa, a fresh and saltwater pool, tennis courts, restaurants, a poolside grill, Kids Camps, bikes, babysitting, kayaks, nightly entertainment and a fire pit for complimentary nightly s’mores. Poshbrood loved walking the grounds and finding ocean view hammocks to lounge in and enjoyed sunset cocktails on the deck of the saltwater pool while the kids swam.
The Inn has recently cleared a couple of miles of easy, wooded walking/hiking paths that are perfect for everyone (and visiting dogs) to explore. The quaint harbor of Boothbay was close enough to bike and walk to over the historic footbridge. Poshbrood recommends the duck pin bowling lanes and a visit to the 100 year old taffy making machine on a rainy day. Absolutely do not miss the incredible Maine Botanical Gardens that include an unbelievable two-acre children’s garden complete with fairy houses, mazes, boats, tree houses, bridges, play cottages, ponds, whimsical topiaries and more. Children of all ages (and parents!) are mesmerized for hours. www.mainegardens.org
