“Great Stay at a Complete Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

My wife and I had a great stay at the SPI. The rooms were spacious and clean, the restaurants were excellent and the location with water views and the waterside pool were great.

Just as with all properties, the ultimate differentiator is the service and the staff. At SPI, virtually everybody was engaged, upbeat and ready to assist each and every guest.

Will return soon!

We had a fabulous mini-vacation at Spruce Point Inn. My husband and I got married there in 2005, and we've been back every year. It's a wonderful resort in an amazing location. We love staying there and exploring Boothbay every summer. There are many kid activities at the inn: camp, 2 pools (one saltwater, one fresh water), a game room, kayaking, and a nice playground. The spa is great. We love it there!

Room Tip: Even the partial ocean view rooms have a very nice view, in my experience.

This was our second stay at Spuce Point Inn and was better than the first. It is a wonderful and relaxing escape from our daily lives in Suburban Chicago. Boothbay Harbor is wonderful. The only negitive was the food at SPI. All the wonderful eateries in Boothbay Harbor more than made up for this minor shortcoming. We were charmed to find out the Kennedy family vacationed at SPI and Albert Einstein Sailed the beautiful waters of Boothbay.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are a must but $$$!

Summer is highlighted with our annual stay at the Spruce Point Inn. This experience is beyond any other Inn we've ever visited. This year the weather was outstanding but even in previous years when the weather was rainy the coziness of the Inn was inviting to cuddle up with a book and enjoy the views. We look forward to our visit no matter what weather conditions. "Best part of the summer".

Room Tip: West facing rooms are always our favorite. Most beautiful susets!

We enjoyed our stay at SPI. The location is beautiful and the main inn and the cabins were nice and clean. The people were also nice and attentive. The pool area is small but nice, a little noisy when there are a lot of kids but we still enjoyed it. The sunsets from this location are beautiful. We ate dinner at Bogie's and it was good. Overall, we would recommend SPI to our friends for a relaxing weekend and for families with kids as there are a lot of activities for kids and adults alike.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Spruce Point Inn with our two toddlers in cottage room Starboard C. Overall it was a pleasant experience. The main lodge common areas are lovely and relaxing and the grounds are nicely maintained. We enjoyed staying in a place where we could get some pretty good food as a family or in shifts while we kept the kids busy. There was plenty to do on the grounds: mini hiking trails, pools, a playground with sandbox and boat play structures, and a fabulous little rec hall with a play kitchen, train set, push toys, and arcades. There was also a lot to do nearby: the Botanical Garden has a wonderful children's garden that kept our two year olds busy for two hours and they could have gone longer! The railway museum was great and had a special Thomas day. For us, the place was beautiful and the bar tender was good!

However, there were some strange oversights:
1) My biggest complaint was our mattress. It was the worst mattress I have ever experienced in a hotel. It seemed like it was 10+ years old and something you would find in a junky rental cabin rather than a nice resort. I am not sure we will go back because of this alone. First night was bad; by the third night we were cranky.
2) Our bedroom smelled like sewage. I think there may have been a venting issue in the plumbing of Starboard B.
3) One small trashcan in a cottage room with a bathroom, bedroom, living room, and kitchenette.
4) Lack of sidewalks or paths from some cabins. There was a sidewalk from our cabin into the main road running through the property. Rather than march our toddlers on the road to go up to the Inn or other amenities, we had to run them up a grassy hill.
5) Single grilling station (a nice option) but no nearby picnic tables.
6) Agree with a prior poser about the hours of the restaurant, 30-45 minutes earlier would really help for families with young kids.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Spruce Point. I am pleased that overall you had a very good stay and in particular found Boothbay Harbor and the SPI resort, appropriate for your family during early August.

I have finally been able to get into Starboard C, one of our Oceanfront Cottage Rooms. It's been occupied since your review posted.

The bed in Starboard C is new from 2011. It's a plush top. I am sorry we were not aware of this issue as we would have gladly replaced your bed with one that was more suitable for you. Perhaps one of the newest double plush beds would have been better.

Also, had we known of a smell, we could have offered an explanation and solution for you. I've not had a single comment of this nature and Starboard, as perhaps the most popular Cottage, has been occupied nearly every day of the season. I could not recreate this issue.

Housekeeping has added an additional waste basket to Starboard C, and I have copied your other great ideas to a winter projects and standards list that we will be discussing soon.

Thank you again for your review. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay.

Sincerely,

Angelo DiGiulian

This was our 18th year visiting SPI, and the first year coming without children. We just sent our last off to college and decide to treat ourselves for a 4 day getaway. GREAT IDEA!!!!
What a treat!!!! The views from every point of the inn is UNREAL. The flowers and the perennials gardens always amaze me, how well they are maintained and make SPI such a special place. Great area along the oceanfront to run/exercise.
We stayed in Tanager B, which is a nice room for a couple and faily priced. Pelican cottage and Little Spruce is a great choice for a family of 4. Our children have such fond memories of this place. The smores are a big hit with the kids!!!!!
Joe and Angelo do a terrific job. We hope to see you all next year. Thank you for a beautiful trip.
Sincerely, Megan and Peter
