Spruce Point Inn Burnishes History and Décor for 2012 Maine Coast Summer Season
Enhances Historic Inn, Classic Cottages, Luxury Resort Rooms, Townhomes and Grounds
Boothbay Harbor, Maine (January 26, 2012) – Anticipating strong demand from guests who made Spruce Point Inn the top hotel in Boothbay on TripAdvisor, innkeepers Angelo Digiulian and Joe Paolillo continue to enhance the guestroom décor and amenities throughout the 56-acre property for the 2012 summer season.
Spruce Point Inn offers visitors to the Maine midcoast a choice of four different types of classic Maine vacation experiences – all in one dramatic waterfront location at the entrance to Boothbay Harbor. Guests choose from the options of the historic Inn, the traditional cottages, modern lodge guestrooms and extended stay townhouses. All enjoy the attention and amenities of the full service resort – three restaurants (88 for Maine coastal cuisine, Bogie’s casual bistro and Deck the seasonal oceanfront café), two swimming pools (fresh and saltwater), waterfront amenities including a complimentary water launch, 25’ dock and ten moorings, recreational equipment (sea kayaks, bicycles, lawn games), a full service Spa and expansive reception and conference space.
Having upgraded the resort rooms and grounds for 2011, the innkeepers have focused on the historic main Inn, classic cottages and additional grounds details for 2012.
“As we reflected on the 2011 upgrades to the guestrooms, cottages, and amenities, we realized that now more than ever the guest experience and choice of accommodations we offer at Spruce Point Inn is unparalleled,” said innkeeper Angelo Digiulian. “Only at Spruce Point Inn can one choose a classic Maine coast family cottage, a contemporary resort guestroom, an extended stay Townhouse, or accommodations in a historic seaside Inn with companionably-creaky wood stairs and quirky character. Most Maine vacation destinations offer just one choice. We offer all four, in an incomparable setting, with the same full-service amenities serving all accommodations.”
Historic Inn & Classic Cottages
In The Inn, all nine of the guestrooms have been named in honor of prior innkeepers or for their commanding views.From the tip top Crow's Nest to "officer's suites" to the cozy traditional rooms, The Inn reflects the history and ambience traditional New England inns are known for. No elevators, just the staircases to two levels of guestrooms. No jacuzzis; but private pine-paneled baths in each room. The Inn guestrooms were freshened this winter with a soothing marine palette accented with historical resort photography. All Inn rooms are now air-conditioned and new amenities were added, including comfortable plush top beds with triple sheeting in luxurious linens, a refrigerator (stocked with Poland Spring water), wireless access, LCD flat screen television, i-Pod docking station, and a Keurig coffeemaker (with a selection of Green Mountain Coffee and teas).
Spruce Point Inn also offers a choice of eight classic cottages. The nearest thing to a summer home when America took to the road for vacations, cottages became the hallmark of the New England coast and are the source of childhood memories of summer "at the shore."
The Cottages at Spruce Point Inn provide the greater privacy and complete access to all the resort amenities, services and hospitality, while taking advantage of one of the best locations on the Maine coast. The selection includes secluded Woodlandview among the spruces (Little Spruce, Oriole, Pelican, Cardinal, and Tanager) and Oceanfront options (Sunset, Starboard and Osprey). For the 2012 season, the innkeepers are making 'summer home' improvements in all of the cottages -- new screen doors and replacement of bathroom floors and fixtures. But guests will notice the added luxuries: a soothing marine palette accented with historical resort photography, wireless access and LCD flat screen televisions. All eight cottages have a fireplace or wood-stove, a private porch or deck and kitchen facilities.
Guests will also find a subtle new look as they walk the grounds this summer. New lighting fits the landscape unobtrusively while providing the necessary illumination after dark. For added convenience, the resort has upgraded the signage with an understated style that better reflects the comfortable sort of luxury – and necessary way-finding -- guests expect. Landscape improvements include colorful perennial plantings around the perimeter and special care with trees and hedges to keep them healthy while improving sight lines. The Oceanside Deck gets an extensive facelift, with new cushions and umbrellas, and a new pool bar, in-ground hot tub and restroom. The Inn is also expanding the pond adjacent to Evergreen Lodge, installing a liner, a lighted fountain, a small footbridge and a seating area with Adirondack chairs to turn this magic corner into another private hideaway.
“Guests who arrive at Spruce Point Inn in 2012, when our season starts in May, will find something subtly new, around every corner -- but just as wonderful as they remember,” said Digiulian. “After all, we had to give guests new inspiration for creating oceanside memories, made in Maine!”
