#8 of 12 in Boothbay Harbor
Spruce Point Inn is a beautiful oceanfront destination situated on over 55 acres of shoreline fringed with tall spruce woodland. As the resort sits “off the beaten path,” getaways here feel like a genuine retreat. Located about an hour "down east" from Portland, Spruce Point Inn is a gem among Maine resorts, differentiated from other oceanfront properties by the acres of woodland, gardens and trails. Born as a private retreat for captains of industry seeking an oceanside escape for fishing, hunting and rusticating, Spruce Point Inn continues to burnish its legacy, offering an iconic coastal Maine experience. Guests here enjoy the luxury of leisure and simplicity – tailoring the Spruce Point Inn experience to their own pace. They may enjoy as much, or as little, as they’d like. Either way, they always leave feeling refreshed. Recognized by major travel media as “one of the best resorts in New England,” this vacation destination attracts all generations with a timeless appeal. Putting Spruce Point in the historical context of Maine200, the Inn has attracted travelers from across the United States for more than a century and has shared historic moments with national, international and Maine leaders as well as families and friends, each creating their own “oceanside memories made in Maine.” Spruce Point Inn is the premier Maine resort, an ideal venue for romantic or family getaways, and a distinctive destination for memorable reunions, seaside weddings and executive retreats.

Thank you to Casey Penn and her team for hosting a memorable, beautiful, and hassle-free prom at one of their event halls at the Spruce Point Inn. The group was kind enough to donate the venue to our local junior class who, due to COVID, has not been able to fundraise. The staff was helpful from set-up to clean up, checking in to make sure we had what we needed. This was the first event for our students in a few years and the smiles in the pictures tell it all. Thank you for being a part of our priceless memories.

(This is a repost since our review was removed for some reason) My wife and I got married at Spruce Point Inn last October. We fell in love with the property and scenery when we took our initial tour back in April 2020. Little did we know, the property was sold and was under new management by the time we had our wedding. We signed our contract with the original management/staff but ultimately got a different level of customer service from the new team. I'll try my best to keep short, but here are the pros/cons: PROS: - SPI is beautiful! The view of Bar Harbor is amazing, especially from the Overlook Deck, which is where we got married. - The rooms have some age to them, especially the cottages. Regardless, they're not as bad as other reviewers have said in other posts. If you’re considering staying at SPI, I suggest the lodges. They’ve been somewhat updated. - The waitstaff, banquet staff, and bartenders were out of this world. They seemed like they cared unlike some people at Spruce… More on that later. - The food was delicious! Best wedding food i’ve ever had - Glad it was at our wedding! CONS: Where do we begin… - The lack of communication with Gil, the (former) GM, and the event planner would be an understatement. It was nonexistent. - The event planner, Kayce, is unqualified and totally unprofessional. Every step of the planning process was like pulling teeth. She never responded to our time sensitive emails until weeks later and multiple follow-ups. Kayce was also missing during reception and cocktail hour (Cocktail is a whole different story) She was routinely rude to the bride’s parents, promised them the world and never delivered. I could go on: lack of interpersonal skills, organizational skills… You name it! Do not even consider getting married at Spruce Point Inn unless you have a Wedding Planner. - Cocktail hour was planned to be held on the deck. The view is beautiful, it was half of the reason we booked our wedding at SPI. Unfortunately, there was terrible rain the morning of the wedding, and we had to make a decision by 10 AM (their rule) as to whether to proceed with the ceremony and cocktail hour on the deck. The team told us that we could likely get through the ceremony while there was a break in the rain, but the winds would make cocktail hour an issue. They offered to set up cocktail hour under the tent next to the hall. The bride jumped at this offer, as she was just happy to hear that the ceremony could be outside. Fast forward to cocktail hour, and it was not windy. And there was no bar set up under the tent. If it was only a matter of moving servers (which is what it seemed like in the end), why did we need to decide by 10 AM? We would never have agreed to move cocktail hour under the tent if we knew it would be like that. Also, there were no staff members present to point our guests to the new location. Management also never told our wedding coordinator (who we hired separately very late in the process, as we were getting less confident in SPI management) nor the groom of the location change. Thus the DJ was never alerted and we almost didn’t have music at our makeshift cocktail hour. The brides’ parents also insisted that they wanted appetizers to be plentiful, agreeing to pay extra for extra rounds of trays to satisfy all of the guests, and yet some of the guests never received any of the appetizers. Management should have figured out a way to make our cocktail hour happen in the location that we wanted with the amount of food requested. If the ceremony could be there, one more hour in that location should not have been an issue. Bottom line: Spruce Point Inn promised us a beautiful setting, attentive staff and organization and they dropped the ball. Instead of joy and happiness about every aspect of our wedding, we at times feel angry and upset over how we were so misled by the management team. Unless you have a bulldog for a wedding planner or willing to constantly stay on top of management, we would not recommend booking your wedding at SPI.

Nick, Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us. We are so glad you enjoyed the scenery and that the views from the overlook deck were the backdrop to your beautiful ceremony. However, we are very disappointed to read about your experience and sincerely apologize for the series of events that you describe. Your wedding, planning and all, should feel like a special occasion and be as stress-free as possible. While we sometimes have to make the tough decision to change location due to inclement weather, it is important that we make the transition feel seamless. We are very sorry you did not receive the day you imagined. We know it wasn’t what you envisioned, but we would like to congratulate you on your wedding and wish you both a lifetime of health and happiness.

We had an exceptional long weekend with over 100 guests. Huge birthday bash, intimate dinner, champagne brunch all organized and executed by the amazing staff at SPI. These are challenging times in hospitality and service. This team nailed it. Kayce was our main contact and she worked with all of our ideas (some crazy) and many different vendors from flowers to wine to pull off an unforgettable birthday weekend. She was collaborating, working and juggling a full Inn also at this time, truly above and beyond attention to detail. The Inn is beautiful and being carefully renovated. This place and this team are rare gems. A big shout out also to Clive for his excellent service.

We had an extraordinary event at SPI. Kayce was outstanding and paid careful attention to the many details we threw at her over the course of planning and execution - including cancelling for a year due to COVID. Everyone who attended had a marvelous time and loved the property. Yes, there are clearly changes taking place on the property but from our perspective all for the good. Updates are happening; some rooms do need a "refresh" and the COVID staffing issues did present some challenges but we worked well with the team there and everyone did their best to pull of a magical weekend. While the property and amenities at SPI are lovely we would highly suggest for a weekend event to do a few things "off property"... especially at the Chowder House (right on the harbor)! Our closing event was a lobster bake at their wonderfully cozy and charming venue. They were incredibly easy and fun to work with and it was the capstone of an extraordinary few days in Boothbay Harbor. We will go back - maybe not with 200 friends and family in tow, but overall this was a very good property (that has the potential to be GREAT after some renovations) and a terrific staff!

I have an abundance of amazing things to say about not just the location, but the wonderful, kind, attentive staff! From Reception, to Event Coordinator, to room service, all of it was 5 plus stars. The rooms are dated which I think gives the essence of Coastal Maine in a small town Boothe Bay it's wonderful charm. I had the pleasure of staying there for a weekend and was able to use the wonderful surplus amenities. Low key, I am scoping out the perfect place to get married. I was talking on the phone with my Fiance when I saw the cutest person stop in front of me with a big smile. The stars aligned. "Hi! I'm Kayce the Event Coordinator here! Did I hear you're looking for a Venue? I would love to walk you through our facility and our Wedding options!" Mind you, I am someone who gets very overwhelmed with even a grocery list, nevermind planning a whole wedding. In no time, I felt listened to and appreciated by Kayce. I have an incredibly tight budget and she explained all of the options possible. She was not pushy, she was not aggressive, and she made me feel like we had been friends for years! As we walked the facility, there is no bad view. My Fiance and I are Irish but I'm mostly Scottish and she showed me this room that had the same plaid that were my clan colors. I was breathless. She also took the time to show me the designs and color schemes that would go with my Bridesmaids dresses and let me tell you, this girl can design her ass off! It was all perfect to a T. I was ready to book and sign papers right there, but my Fiance and I ended up eloping in the place we fell in love on a whim. Without writing a whole book, if you want someone to be there every step of the way for you on your big stressful day, then let this amazing human help you with it all!

Hi Sarah! What a pleasure to read this review of your time with us at Spruce Point Inn. I am absolutely thrilled to read you enjoyed our beautiful resort and the excellent service from our staff. Kacey is truly an asset to not only our team but to our guests, she takes such pride in making sure every detail is perfect. I appreciate your kind words and will share them as I know it will mean a lot to them as well. Congratulations to you and your husband on your Elopement, even if we are a little sad, the events and pictures at the White Clover would have been perfect with the plaid! It would be our pleasure to celebrate with you both in the future. Please visit again soon, you are always a welcomed guest!

My wife and I visit resorts through out the world. This was our first visit to spruce point. There was not a single thing we would change or ask them to do differently. The modern feel of amenities was not over shadow by the decades of history. The staff was very pleasant and always had smiles on their faces. Well done Spruce Point, this will not be our last visit

Visited in October for a quick getaway. This was my second time visiting and this inn and the quaint town nearby are becoming a favorite tradition for my wife and I to escape to. The fall colors were serene - we loved the mix of wooded trails and the ocean right across the road. The food was delicious. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. Our room was not cleaned during our stay, but we were told at check-in that housekeeping was available upon request should we have any need. Looking forward to returning sometime. Highly recommend!

From the moment we stepped foot on the property we fell in love with Spruce Point Inn! Our room had a view of the ocean as well as the sprawling forest which made for a wonderful spot for our morning coffee. The dining outlets were all amazing! I loved the bartender at the Salty Stag and had the best crab cakes at Whiteclover. We will make visiting Spruce in October for the beautiful fall foliage our new yearly tradition. Can't wait for our return!

We were disappointed on so many levels coming to SPI during shoulder season. Firstly - the Salty Stag restaurant was "out of fish" and other food items because the Inn was closing days after our stay. Secondly we had a reservation through Open Table at the Whiteclover only to find out that the restaurant had closed for the season 2 weeks before our stay. We had to find out by inquiring at the front desk when we noticed there was no one in the restaurant. No Ammenities were available pools not headed, marshmollogy /firepit - no one showed up. Lastly - there was a Wedding that took place and the entire Inn was basically the wedding party and attnedants. Our Cottage was directly adjacent to the wedding and people were loud and celbrating well into 4:30 in the evening. We were never told about the wedding and never offiered a location further away from the festivities. For the rates we paid this was a rediculous eperience - Will NEVER go back and do no reccommend.
