Time to Earn “Best Of” in Personal Travelogues


Time to Earn “Best Of” in Personal Travelogues

As Bing Crosby observed in White Christmas, “It can feel kind of shaky up there on a bleached charger.”

And that’s kind of how we feel here at Spruce Point Inn as we enter another balloting season for “Best of” honors at DownEast Magazine and  Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Thanks to the extended family of friends – including an ever-loyal band of repeat guests – the Inn has earned “Best Hotel in Maine”  honors for three years running. And you moved us from #16 in 2017 to #3 in 2018 in the Conde Nast Traveler list of Top 30 hotels in the Northeast. Such rewards delight us, both as recognition for the entire team for a job well done; but also, because your independent votes demonstrate your love for the experience we deliver. The awards honor the basics, with Readers’ Choice points for accommodations, food, service and ambience. But your choice elevates Spruce Point Inn to the position of your favorite: the place that in your opinion delivers on the promise of combining the authenticity of our historic and stunning property alongside personal attention for every guest. It matters so much to us that you enjoy every moment of your visit, whether you’re here for a week, a tranquil afternoon at the pool and spa, or a sunset drink in Bogie’s.

Being “best of” puts a whole new spring in our step — along with a whole new concern that we not only live up to, but exceed, your expectations. As our New England Red Sox and Patriots know, championships are precarious berths. No resting laurels here! The smallest slip can be magnified because so many eyes are watching. And the hearts of so many fans beat faster with each outing.  Ours, too! “Best of” at Spruce Point Inn means rededication to a season of opportunities to shine, in the biggest, and the tiniest of ways.

Now opening day approaches and it’s time to blow that spun glass bubble that turns 88 Grandview Avenue into the place of your dreams. Time for us to earn “Best of” in your own, personal travelogue of family geography, where quality, authenticity and innovation rise to meet your sense of anticipation.

And it’s time, please, to vote for the Down East “Best of” awards and Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice. We would be honored if you’d click on these links to cast your vote for Spruce Point Inn.

And we are even more honored to serve you.

Summer’s almost here! We look forward to helping you create the best ever “oceanside memories made in Maine.”
