Due to a mix-up with dates and hotels, we ended up driving a bit north after Kennebunkport, and stayed the night at a gorgeous resort call Spruce Point Inn. I have never had any inclinations or thoughts of planning a wedding, but if I were that kind of girl, this place would probably be #1 on my list!
We had an unbelievably great sunset that night. Like I could not stop taking pictures the light was so pretty. I now see the appeal of East Coast summers, as my mother has always said are pretty grand.
In the sunshine of the next day I wandered around Spruce Point, where they seemed to have everything. Built in the late 1800’s by the Marston Family initially as a tea house and inn. After WW2, renovations happened and new buildings were added. In 1957 the property changed hands, and was updated with a pool, a golf course, and a protective wall added to the lower beach. While we were there, two weddings were scheduled for the upcoming weekend!
Both my father and I agreed it would be fun to bring my mom and brother back here for a fun easy week.
Spruce Point Inn seemed to have everything. It was built along a protected cove, which seemed perfect for kayaking and going out on the resort’s sailboat. They had two restaurants within the main building, tennis courts, a spa for the ladies, a salt-water pool, hot tub, bikes,even a game room for the kids.
We walked the mile and a half down and across a bridge into the little town called BoothBay Harbor.
The town was fun to wander around for a few hours and seemed to have charming shops. I purchased a few knick-nacks for my apartment and my dad got a coffee-mug. I think a family could easily enjoy a variety of activities here, they seemed to have something for everyone!
I hope I can convince my family to go back and spend a week there next summer!
