Spruce Point Inn Website Captures Classic Coastal Maine Summer Vacation

Boothbay Harbor, Maine (February 28, 2011) – Spruce Point Inn Resort & Spa has completed a total makeover of its online presence to match the upgrades completed this winter to the Main Inn, cottages and Maine lodges. The results are captivating, according to innkeepers Joe Paolillo and Angelo DiGiulian.

The new website – www.sprucepointinn.com-- and its online dynamics is the result of collaboration between the Inn and O’Rourke Hospitality of Newburyport, MA, the award-winning full-service hospitality marketing experts and online strategists. The website combines spectacular photography of the 57-acre property and its Boothbay Harbor location (including a dramatic aerial view of the Inn, situated at the tip of Spruce Point overlooking Linekin Bay) and detailed, easy-to-navigate information about the Inn’s accommodations and amenities. Guests can quickly check rates and availability through the on-line reservations system.

“If a picture’s worth a thousand words, the new Spruce Point Inn website’s worth a library,” said innkeeper Angelo DiGiulian. “Over this past winter, we have invested in makeovers for our guestrooms, an upgrade of the Main Inn reception area, new poolside and waterfront amenities and the creation of a new oceanside café – DECK – that will bring ‘smart casual’ lunch service to Boothbay Harbor. We wanted our online presence to tell that story with the facts and the images that captured what we think the Inn is all about. O’Rourke has caught the timeless feel of a classic Maine summer vacation and the informal warmth of the Inn that keeps bringing people back, generation after generation.”

From spacious guestrooms to cozy Maine cottages, Spruce Point Inn Resort & Spa accommodates romantic getaways, family vacations and special events from weddings to executive retreats with a diverse selection of accommodations, including traditional and contemporary Maine lodges, guestrooms and suites in the historic Main Inn, classic Maine summer cottagesand modern townhouses. During the renovations, the innkeepers have addressed the smallest details throughout the property, replacing wall and floor-coverings, adding new bedding, Keurig coffeemakers, plasma screen televisions and Green Natura bath products. Different color palettes accent the seaside cottage style or contemporary warmth of the furnishings. Each guestroom also now features photographs from the Inn’s storied past, including famous guests from astronaut John Glenn to the Kennedys as well as snapshots from the diningroom, dock and waterfront.
