Description
Mavooshen Retreat at Sprucewold, Private Beach Access, Minutes to Downtown

This newly renovated 2-bedroom log cabin has exclusive access to a private beach club and dock and is minutes to downtown Boothbay Harbor, by car or by foot. Find peace in this secluded, historic location.

Vintage meets sophistication in the 2-bedroom, 1-bath cabin with exposed log walls in the coastal community of Sprucewold. Originally developed as a rustic summer retreat in the 1920s, 75 log cabins centered around the Sprucewold Lodge just up the hill, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You'll love Mavooshen?s quiet location on a dead-end road, and the easy 1.2 mile walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor. You?ll share private access to the Sprucewold Beach Club and Crooked Pine Float.

Indulge in Maine's famous lobsters at Boothbay Lobster Wharf. The Boathouse Bistro serves a delicious seafood risotto and a beloved blueberry pomegranate sangria a mile from the cabin; day boats off the main pier offer harbor tours and whale watching; and seaside gifts and local crafts abound in local shops.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

Pine needles and moss pave the path to the cozy cabin?s front door. Step into the living room, defined by vaulted ceilings, traditional log walls, and a cool coastal ambiance. A sofa and chairs seat five before a traditional fieldstone fireplace. There's a vintage-minimalist feel in the galley-style kitchen but all the equipment you need to whip up vacation-worthy meals, including a gas grill on the deck. A dining area sits before a picture window and seats up to six on bench seats.

Look out at the evergreen forest from the rustic master bedroom with charming log walls, furnished with a luxurious queen-size bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds and pretty natural light. All beds have electric blankets for those nights when the coastal breezes get nippy. A single bath features a walk-in shower, and brand new sink and vanity with plenty of shelving.

Two porches offer plenty of seating, a dining area, and a relaxing place to let Maine unwind you.

Note: October weather can be chilly, and there is no heat at this house. However, the fireplace works and beds have electric blankets.

THE LOCATION

From boating to hiking to galleries and fine dining, a visit to Boothbay Harbor promises an authentic Downeast experience you'll treasure for years to come. From the cabin, walk to the private Sprucewold Beach Club for swimming, fishing, collecting seashells with the kids, chasing sandpipers and hermit crabs, and watching the tide ebb and flow.

Take a 4.5-mile car ride to peruse the stunning Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and its many seasonal celebrations. Gleason Fine Art Gallery, Mung Bean, Dirty Bird Pottery, and Villard Studio are great for the artsy soul. Boothbay Railway Village, Bigelow Labs, and the Maine State Aquarium offer a fun afternoon for the whole family.

Find more fantastic seafood within minutes of home at Ports of Italy and The Lobster Dock. After dinner, treat yourself to an ice cream cone, and enjoy live music at McSeagull?s or a round of cocktails on the harborside deck at Coastal Prime.

Fitness enthusiasts can purchase a day pass at the local YMCA; rent bikes, kayaks and paddleboards; hike the trails of the Boothbay Land Trust; sail and play tennis. The 18-hole golf course at Boothbay Harbor Country Club has public tee times.

Rustic retreat
David C. from Waco, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2017
We very much enjoyed our stay at Sprucewold. The accommodations were a little more rustic than we expected, (no washer & dryer on sight and not in the description of the property) but brought back memories of cabins we stayed in at summer youth camps. In spite of couple misunderstandings everything worked out great. The management staff was more than accommodating. We will definitely consider it if we make it back to Boothbay Harbor in the future.

Perfect Maine Cabin
Reviewed by: Jack F. recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2017
Mavooshen is a classic old Sprucewold log cabin. It is recently renovated to be clean and comfortable, but thankfully still retains that historic Maine charm from the age of the "Rusticators." If it had a view of the bay, it would be beyond perfect!

A little let down by the little cabin in the woods...
A guest from Philadelphia, PA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2017
This little cabin in the woods is precisely that...a little cabin in the woods. Although very well decorated and well stocked with everything you need, the cabin was pretty small. The bedrooms were literally beds in the rooms and maybe a dresser in each room...and not much room to move around, let alone put your luggage anywhere. We were on a 2 week vacation around Maine and had a bit of bags and luggage, and nowhere to put it besides out in the living room. We had planned on putting our baby's pack-and-play in with us in the Queen bed room, but there was no room. So the baby went out in the living room as well. This cabin is nicely appointed, just super small. Small bathroom, small shower, small kitchen, but I guess it is a cabin in the woods. Pictures just seemed a bit more spacious. Would definitely return to beautiful Boothbay, but perhaps a little closer to the marina. Also, we were a little put off when we received an email one morning telling us to plug in the Samsung tablet the management company provides in the cabin, because it was low on battery. Felt like big brother wanted to oversee things. Also, wifi went down for about 24 hours of our 3 night stay, so that was a bummer. The one night we wanted to watch a movie, we couldn't. Overall, it was a nice cozy cabin, just not quite what we were hoping for.

Hi Reilly,

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. All of our properties are TurnKey Rental Certified and all photos, amenities, calendar, and rates are 100% accurate. We are sorry to hear about the WiFi issue that came up and for any inconvenience this caused as well. Here at TurnKey, it is our highest priority to make sure our guests have the best experience possible, but if problems arise, we do try our very best to make things right in any way we can. It looks like we were able to send someone out to fix this the next morning, and we are so glad you called our 24/7 support line to let us know about it. With regards to the email you received regarding the tablet, our devices generate automatic emails whenever they are unplugged since our Housekeeping Teams use them to document each clean conducted between guests? stays. Thanks again for your patience and for being absolutely perfect guests. If there is anything else we can still do for you, please reach out anytime and let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team

Mavooshen
A guest from Avon, CT recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2017
The cottage was just as pictured and very private. Boothbay is a great area to explore, especially the parts near this cottage. This cottage was chosen though because it was listed as having walking access to a private beach. When we arrived it was clear there was no beach nearby and no instructions left for us as to how to find the beach. After driving around we located a beach, which was nice but is only useable at low tide. Cottage was not completely clean in the kitchen, but everything was functional and the bedrooms and living space were nice and cozy.

quintessential Maine
Reviewed by: Lois G. recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in August, 2017
We loved our stay at Mavoshen. It is classic Maine log cabin in a community of similar charming 1930's cabins. Everything was ready for us when we arrived. Access was easy with the key pad. The kitchen had everything we needed for our stay. The field stone fireplace works well and was lovely to have on our one cooler day. Personal touches, -- art, books, games, cushions and tablecloth for the table on the deck -- made it feel like visiting a friend. The combination of woods and seaside is unbeatable.We'll be back next year!

Comfort and beauty in a real log cabin

Stayed for 4 days in July, 2017
We loved our little cabin in the woods. Cassie has done a beautiful job decorating and the beds, bed linens and towels were 5 star. The cabin is in a beautiful quiet wooded community. We loved the community beach and were made to feel right at home by the summer residents.

Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2017
Arrived at night. No Turnkey signage ; 2 different nos on the house. First night cold ( no heat ). Next day was more relaxing as we settled into this unique home located in a colony of by-gone era. Cabin needed some maintenance (logs missing insulation and could see outside in few places, however the unique cabin was well equipped. Long walks, reading and time alone..
