    7 Bedrooms, 8 Bathrooms, Sleeps 18
    The only house on a private island, perfect for large gatherings. Spruce Island is a seventy-three acre private island off Deer Isle/Stonington, Maine. There are many places to explore and things to do. Dress up as pirates and entertain your children (pirate outfits provided); enjoy campfires on the shore; drive golf balls into the ocean and collect them at low tide; explore other small islands around Spruce (4 kayaks and 2 rowboats provided); swim in a fresh water quarry on near-by island. The house is comprised of two separate buildings. The Main House is a large open room with cathedral ceilings, a huge fireplace, and large well equipped kitchen.

    Isle au Haut, part of Acadia National Park, is about 5 miles to the south of Spruce Island. Merchants Row is renowned for its scenic beauty and is a destination for boaters from around the world. There are dozens of small, uninhabited islands in the area that can be explored by kayak or other small boat (4 kayaks and 2 rowboats provided) and on foot. Robert McCloskey’s “Time of Wonder”, captures the essence of summering on a small Maine island in this area.
