Quentisential New England Town which was great, but Spruce Point Inn was definitely a cut above due to it's elegant, yet New England decor, it's gourmet meals and truly beautiful gardens. Plus, the launch that we think was just recently added which takes you into town was a fun way to get there. Sadly, it rained a couple of days while we were there, but it did not seem to damper the staff's attitude. Everyone was super attentive. This was our third visit and they just keep improving on what is already a great resort!

Room Tip: Try one of the cottages.

Spent several spring days enjoying all the splendor and beauty Maine has to offer. Extremely pleased with every aspect of our stay at the Spruce Point Inn: Spectacular views, clean rooms and facilities, fine dining, relaxing massages, friendly staff who go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one, and a modern yet traditional vibe that colored a positvely enjoyable aura of our time there. Unfortunately we had a few rainy days, but that did not dampen our spirits nor the mood. There was plenty to do around the Inn - especially in their huge game roon and cozy lobby.

Room Tip: Avoid carrying your luggage up the stairs by selecting a first floor room if available.

Received two gift certificates for Christmas and was anxiously awaiting opening of the Inn. It was worth the wait. Love the "feel" of the Inn. It is akin to an upscale "Dirty Dancing" adult summer camp for a night. Stayed in the M1, the Druce Room and was informed that soon shadow boxes will be erected in that room to tell the historical story. Ask anyone at the front desk, they are happy to tell the tale. Speaking of happy, you can tell the entire staff is happy to be there. It is refreshing to find smiling, cheerful staff that greet you as if you are one of the family. Already made reservations to return in August and bring the "girls" and the dogs(yes, they are Very PET FRIENDLY).

Room Tip: M1 is above the dining room, so you do hear the clink of silver during service if you are in your ro...

The good:
great location, beautiful views, excellent grounds and amenities.
The not so good:
the fireplace didn't work all 3 days of our stay, housekeeping repeatedly forgot, or just did not have, bath/shower amenities, enough towels, etc.

Since the Inn had just opened one week before, it could just be opening week jitters and newness from staff.
We enjoyed our room, the place, the feel, we would definetly consider returning.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Little Spruce suite, in the wooded area, very quiet, very spacious.

Memorial Day weekend marked our fifth stay at the Inn...and it was a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. After long days of perusing the art galleries and fine shops in the Boothbay area, it was a pleasure to come back to a well-appointed guest room with a covered deck area overlooking Linekin Bay. The staff was friendly, professional and attentive to details (a few of them even remembered us from prior visits). The best part: being able to bring our chocolate Lab along for the weekend. We've already booked our stay for Labor Day and can't wait to return!

Just came back from an awesome getaway at the Spruce Point Inn in quintessential Boothbay Harbor. Coming from California, I never before experienced the pristine beauty of the Northeast. Immediately upon entering the resort, I was greeted by a wonderful lady who told me about the myriad of activities that one could embark upon in the resort and spa. Although I have never used kayaks, my wife and I used them with ease and even went on a rejuvenating bike ride to explore the town. The ambiance was fabulous and I could not think of a better place to go on a casual outing, a honeymoon, or a family reunion. I would definitely come back!

We found SPI to be a dog-friendly place with a gorgeous view and a lovely place to spend a long weekend. The grounds are obviously well-cared for, and there are certainly quite a few amenities to choose from - though my husband and I did not use these, the resort does offer complimentary van and boat shuttle services to downtown boothbay, kayaks, bikes and a full-service spa.
In general we found the staff to be helpful and accomodating and we even received some lovely ideas on parks to visit with our dog; It may be that we were visiting before the season got underway, but at some points we felt as if a staff member or two weren't sure what was happening on the property - the hot tub appeared to be broken, but no one at the front desk could quite tell us if it had been fixed, even though we saw some men working on it the previous day. I'm sure, had we persevered, there would eventually have been someone who could have clarified for us.
The food on-site was alright; I believe that they were only testing out a 'soft' menu for the main season, so I'm not sure how indicative of the true cuisine our experience was.
Though it may not seem of any consequence, it was bothersome that the only means of getting air into our room was by the doorway; which meant that, if you wanted to have air in your room at night, you had to keep your door open - and unlocked. In a lovely location such as Boothbay Harbor, one would certainly want fresh air in their room, but still not feel as if they have to compromise their privacy to do so. The room did smell quite musty throughout our stay, however it was our decision not to bring this up to management, so we truly can't complain for this.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Thank you for your review. I would very much appreciate the opportunity to host you again in our restaurant. The Inn is a well known and long standing dining destination and your satisfaction is very important to us. As you might expect, the initial reopening days can present minor issues and we regret if that was the case during your visit. There is no excuse for not having everything 100%.

This past winter, among many improvements and upgrades, nearly 150 windows and doors were updated in the Inn, Cottages, and Cottage Rooms. Please contact me and let me know which accommodation did not meet your expectations so that I may address your issues promptly.
