Keeping the “green” in Spruce Point

We celebrate the upcoming 43rd anniversary of Earth Day on April 22 with a reaffirmation of our commitment at Spruce Point Inn to environmental stewardship.

Spruce Point covers 57 acres of woods and waterfront, making our impact on the Maine coastal environment, and active conservation and protection of those beautiful places, a critical part of our responsibility as innkeepers. We love to introduce our guests to the natural environment of Maine and each time someone comments on our incredible location we are rededicated to ensuring Spruce Point remains a legacy for future generations – for all of us who live on the planet. We know that what we do at Spruce Point affects our corner of the coast, the land that surrounds us and the ocean beyond.

“Farm to Table,” Yes!

Food

Executive Chef Peter Stiles is meeting with local farmers and planning menu updates. Some say that “farm to table” is passé. That it’s another food fad, so “yesterday” that chefs who still talk about “eat local” are not keeping up with the latest news. We say “hogwash” and cheer when James Beard Award-winning chef Chris Hastings, stands up on CNN’s Eatocracy blog to say he fears for the day that farm-to-table stops being the foundation for everything we do.

New Family and Kids Upgrades at Spruce Point

It’s winter school vacation (last week and this week) in many parts of the country, so we thought this would be a good time to tell you about some of the new playground features we’ve added to the grounds here.

Winter “Sprucing” Updates

The forecast this weekend is for snow; but here at Spruce Point we are counting down the months til it’s “Maine summer resort” warm. Happily, we are working our way steadily through our winter checklist. Now that we’ve turned into the New Year, we’re excited about what’s new and what we’re “sprucing up” in anticipation of our opening in May.

History of the American Family Vacation

We feel that the Spruce Point Inn is one of the best family resorts in Maine and a great American destination for families looking to create amazing oceanside memories. We are passionate about the American family getaway and so we thought we would do some research and put together this infographic of how the American family vacation has evolved over the years. We hope you enjoy it and would love to hear your comments and feedback.

Welcome to the New & Improved Spruce Point Inn

Those of you who know Spruce Point Inn Resort & Spa in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, know that as innkeepers we work hard at making this a place where oceanside memories are made. By focusing on you, our guests, and what you’ve told us over the past 21 years, we’ve built a reputation as the destination of choice for summer vacations, family reunions, weddings and other social events, business events and executive retreats. That’s because in 100 years one thing has not changed – Spruce Point Inn’s commitment to the best and to providing a classic coastal Maine experience.
