The Sarah Mead to sail daily from inn's dock

 

The Friendship sloop Sarah MeadNo vacation on the Maine coast is complete without spending some time on the water, and now Spruce Point Inn guests will be able to embark on a unique sailing experience from our dock.

Inn guests will be able to reserve cruises aboard the Sarah Mead, a 35-foot, restored Friendship sloop operated by Sail Muscongus, beginning June 1. The Sarah Mead is the Maine coast's only wooden sailing lobster boat.

We want to pass along a big "thank you!" to Bettina Doulton, owner of the Cellardoor Winery, who stopped by the other day to introduce our food and beverage team to some of her great wines.

Bettina, a former mutual fund manager who purchased the Lincolnville winery in 2007, brings terrific energy to Midcoast Maine's tourism and hospitality industry. And her wines are excellent, too!

Cottaging along the coast…

ImageThere’s something about a coastal cottage, even in January that just seems cozy. Here muffled in a snowdrift, the path marked only by the deer passing through, our Oceanfront cottages (Sunset, Starboard and Osprey) peer out to sea on a sunny day. They know we’ve got plans for them – new screen doors, a soft marine palette of paint to freshen the interior and some upgrades for the baths. We’re also adding some tech to the touch: LCD flat screen tv’s and wireless access throughout.

Highlights from media

Trip Advisor ranks Spruce Point Inn #1 of all 12 hotels in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. If you had the opportunity for a visit during the 2011 season, you know why (and have your own top 10 reasons to agree with our motto that Spruce Point Inn is the place for “oceanside memories, made in Maine.”)

Thanks for these memories...

Maybe it’s because blue and gold are opposites on the color chart, and do that pairing thing, beautifully. Maybe it’s because the crisp fall air refracts the sunlight to make the scenery more brilliant. Or maybe it’s because the flame colored leaves of the hardwoods are silhouetted by the dark spruce along the Maine coastline. Whatever the reason, this time of year can be just breathtaking, with just enough left in the sunshine and the harvest to let us remember summer while gathering our lives in for the winter.
