When our group of 4 couples booked to stay at the Sprucewold we had no idea what to expect!!! When we arrived we checked in across the street (single lane blacktopped country road) from the lodge. We walked into a rustic gathering / restaurant area with 3 fireplaces, fresh flowers, a sitting area and game area. I felt like I was in Tennessee again. It was a pleasant surprise!! We were warmly greeted by Richard who makes you feel welcome. Then we were introduced to Dana (Richards wife) who is a wonderful woman. We were taken across the street to the Lodge.
Before I go any further I must say I am very picky about where I stay. My first and utmost request is that the place be clean.
The lobby is dated but clean! You do smell a little bit of a musty smell when you walk in, at first I was a little worried but it is not bad. You step back in time when you visit the lodge. You walk down a hallway with books on either side that you can read at your leisure, some of the books are dated early 1900's. The rooms are dated, but again the beds are clean and comfortable and the bathrooms are also clean. There are no TVs or phones in the rooms and my room only had one plug!!! Something I would think would bother me......but it didn't!! It was nice to relax and enjoy a peaceful week. You can watch TV in the gathering area across the road from the lodge, it has wifi and is a wonderful place to relax, meet and talk to other guests. Richard helped us with places to see and things to do. He knows so much about the area and sent us to the right places to see.
You have coffee waiting for you in the morning in the lodge lobby and the fireplace kept the lobby warm on the chilly mornings. Then you go to the restaurant and have a delicious breakfast buffet waiting for you every morning. (Thank You Jim) If you visit the area stay at this wonderful place in the pines!!!! We all live in PA and we felt like family there. If I ever go back to the Boothbay Harbor area, I will stay at the Sprucewold!!
