We visited about this time last year. It was a quick trip, just two nights, but we felt so recharged afterwards it might have been longer. Driving up to the hotel takes you along the water to the hotel's main lodge, where a row of Adirondack chairs sits facing out onto the bay. Spruce Point works really well both for couples and for families thanks to lots of lodging options, which range from a cozy room at the inn with a little balcony overlooking the water to two or three bedroom townhouses.
There's so much to keep guests busy here. In the mornings we took advantage of the maze of hiking trails in the woods just behind the resort. The hotel is dog friendly and we'd brought along our dachshund Harold who adored running around off leash.
There are two pools, including this one with a spectacular view of the bay. There's also a hot tub, which is divine during this time of year as the temperatures start to drop.
The hotel runs a boat service between its dock and the town of Booth Bay throughout the day. They also have kayaks that are included in the cost of a stay guests can take out for an afternoon.
The resort also offers free bikes, and we used them to ride up the road to the little beach and then over the bridge into town for a delicious lunch of fresh oysters and beer from Maine-based Shipyard Brewing Company.
The sunset here is truly awe-inspiring. Both nights, we parked ourselves in a pair of Adirondack chairs, ordered a bottle of wine from the bar and watched the sun sink right into the bay in front of us. Afterwards, it was dinner at 88 restaurant, where the menu centers around locally-sourced seafood. For dessert, we walked up the pathway to the hotel's nightly "S'mores Station" where guests are given free fixings for s'mores to roast over an open campfire as one of the staff plays the guitar. Pretty darn charming all in all. Check out the hotel's full list of fall activities with hikes, cooking classes and more.
