About Christine Snow
Family inherited property. We have a very high standard for its maintenance and improvements. Experiences and memories thru the generations. The present owners live in MA, ME AND OR. Our children played on the same rocks, foraged for crabs and swam until their lips were blue, just as our father before us and his father before him.
Christine Snow purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Christine Snow chose Spruce Head
Maine is where our hearts and our souls rejoice, we enjoy a healthier lifestyle and receive a spiritual lift when we visit.

Beautiful spot close to many interesting attractions. Chris was a great host.
Lovely place to get away from it all
If you are the type to want to get away from it all, this is the place for you. No WiFi, no cable TV, no phone. (Cell service is spotty depending on your carrier - for AT&T there’s no service.) The view is spectacular and peaceful. A small beachy area reveals itself when the tide goes down, and is a great place to hunt for shells or sea glass. Sit on the porch or grab a chair outside and just soak it all in. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen stocked with dishes, utensils, pots/pans, etc. The gas fireplace was most welcome on chilly evenings/mornings. Rent a DVD in town and snuggle in for the night! Takeout can be had a mile in either direction, or drive the 15 minutes into Rockland for a variety of choices, or a grocery store. We had a lovely time!
Great Stay at Spruce Head
Perfect location. Family rented cottages on Spruce Head for the week of Sept 8th - 15th for Dad's 80th BDAY. We were within walking distance of each other.
After Labor Day - weather unpredictable. Cozy, clean and rustic.
Others may relish in living completely off the grid...but I have to admit I did miss wifi and cable tv. Particularly on a rainy day.
The master bedroom had the best natural lighting and view of the water. It did not have a dresser or closet - so we had to use the dressers and closet in the 2nd bedroom. The 2nd bedroom was a good size with 2 queen size beds. Great for family, however, it would be a challenge from a storage perspective for clothing and personal belongings.
Overall - loved it. Reminded me very much of my childhood stays at camp.
Quintessential Midcoast Maine!
This is my fourth stay in midcoast region, and this particular location is now my favorite -- quiet/rural, right on the water, close to the lobster shack. I was there to unplug and get some writing (and reading) done, and that happened -- mostly on the perfect screen porch. The kitchen was great and had all I needed, and the bed was VERY comfortable, with clean, fresh linens. Well-stocked bathroom as well. The sense of family/history in the cottage is palpable. Great jumping off point for the region -- and frankly, there's enough on the St. George peninsula alone to fill your week with exploring/eating. Me, I just needed a spot to retreat, with access to the sounds/smells/light of the ocean -- and this perfectly fit the bill.
We loved the peace and quiet as well as teh rustic atmosphere of the cabin.
We much enjoyed staying at the cabin. It was very comfortable. It's right of the main road with only other house further down. We had peace and quiet and we able to just sit at the lake and relax reading a book. There's a simple lobster shack about a mile down the road, right on the water, great view, and they have internet if you can't live without. It was the perfect break away from our rushed lives. Just nice to enjoy the beauty of the place. We took a one day trip to Arcadia National Park, very doable. Also went to Monhegan Island and took a puffin tour out of Pt. Clyde which is only 20 minutes away. In short, there are things to do and at the same time it's a soothing environment.
Rustic cottage, perfect setting
The cottage was just right for the two of us, very comfortable and clearly a cottage for the family that we were permitted to enjoy for a week. Everything had been thought of...we should have forgot more things so we could have benefitted from Ms. Snow's thoughtfulness! Sitting right on the water was just marvelous. As first arrivals of 2018, we were too early for lobster pots but not too early for ducks, woodchucks, turkey, and a faithful and contemplation-inducing tide!
