Charming Little Cabin in the Woods
Be careful if you arrive at night or in inclement weather. Was raining when we arrived. Was a bit tricky ascending up the roots and wet dirt ground to the porch. No stairs from the road.
Loved our stay there.

Excellant location,
Cozy little Maine Cottage, close to town yet peaceful and quiet. Turnkey was there for us if we needed them, yet no one to interrupt or bother us. We would stay there again in a heart beat.

Very nice spot
We really enjoyed our stay. Only thing that we were a little bummed about was that the cabin did not provide toilet paper, hand soap etc. We drove from Boston airport and hoped to settle into the cabin right away, but realized that we had to visit a store to grab these amenities. So be prepared and either stop on your way or pack these items. The cabin itself was awesome!

Rustic retreat
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
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!

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.

Awesome stay in a cozy cabin
We absolutely loved out stay in this cabin. Comfy, cozy, great linens and blankets, great hot water. A wonderful neighborhood for walks and quiet times.

quintessential Maine
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!

Rustic cottage in the woods
It started out a bit challenging to find. GPS said it was on the opposite side of street and has two different house nos. House numbers are hard to see as they are on trees and not illuminated. After making calls, we finally located it and parking is also a bit challenging. One car can fit and you must parallel park along street. Just enough room not to get hit by another car. Upon entering we noticed 2 garbage bags full of linens and the queen bed had no sheets, unmade, and no towels. I called Turnkey and they said they would send somebody out right away as there was an emergency - said to go ahead and have lunch on them and they would have it completed in a timely manner. After 2 hours we came back and nothing was done. Called again. This was Sunday evening now. They had to get approval and again I had to wait. I was planning on finding another place to spend the night. Finally later that evening, someone came and brought the linens. After that fiasco, things got better. I made these reservations back in Feb. The cabin is very cute, rustic and perfect for our trip. It is well equipped mostly. TV is a bit small, but wi fi worked well. Kitchen is adorable and functional with just enough utensils needed for anyone. Beds are comfortable, the down comforters helped when it was a bit chilly at night. The living area is quaint with the authentic fireplace, and the comfortable seating. Loved the skylights and location to Booth Bay Harbor. Truly unique and beautiful setting. Walked along the quiet and wooded streets down to the water. Although we did not take advantage of the beach area within the community, it was a wonderful walk. We had a great time taking time to view the lighthouses in the area, really great dinner at Brown Warf Inn... lots of food! Then we went to the infamous Clam bake at Cabbage Island. It was nice to have a bit of a tour from the Captain regarding the area history of the various island and light houses. If you were lucky, you may even see a seal, or dolphin swimming. We had a lovely time overall. Forgot to mention that the water line is above ground and originates from the street. We noticed a leak (its where one would park). We let Turnkey know. They came out and put tape on it. Said they would fix it. I guess that is their fix?? Anyway beware when you park... we did not park on that area, but a caution sign should be mounted. They have a few quirks in their management but our experience overall was good.

Comfort and beauty in a real log cabin
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.

As time went by we began to enjoy the stay
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..

Magical Weekend at Cozy Cabin in the Woods!
This quaint, intimate rental is absolutely perfect! The cabin, with its spacious living area, huge river rock fireplace and log accents has the allure and charm reminiscent of a bygone era. Yet, the decor, amenities and attention to detail ensure that it is on a par with the finest hotels in the area. As someone who has been coming to Boothbay Harbor for over 40 years and typically stays in an oceanfront property, I loved Spucewold and its unique offerings. The cabin in the woods feel was ideal for the lazy days I chose to hang with my daughter, reading books, playing board games and watching the Olympics. After we were well rested, it was ideal to have direct access to the Sprucewold beach (a rare find in this area), have a dock available to be picked up by boat or be able to get to shopping and restaurants within minutes. If you are considering this rental, don't give it another thought, you will love it! We certainly did and can't wait to return.
