The space

Now recently retired as the kindergarten teacher, I still enjoy maintaining Spindlewood as a warm and wonder-filled Waldorf early childhood setting with handmade wooden and woolen toys and outdoor play area. The walls have absorbed children's song and laughter for 30 years. The table area is sized for children. Kitchen has basic pots, pans and skillet. Gas stove, small refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker. No microwave. Situated in a three generation family farmstead at the end of a country road.

Guest access

Wi-Fi signal is weak in the cottage, but stronger as you walk toward the nearby house. You are welcome to step into studio for Wi-Fi.

You are also welcome to visit the sheep and hens in the barn.

Interaction with guests

We live and work next door, look forward to welcoming you, and safeguarding your privacy. We hope to meet you on the paths, and hope you will join us for tea or coffee.

Other things to note

Follow Proctor Road to the Spindlewood sign in turnaround. You can park on the right next to our red VW. Jack or I will meet you and walk you down to the cottage.

The pictures do not do this magical and beautiful haven justice. Do yourself, family and friends a favor and stay here. So inspiring and lovely beyond belief. We will be back again.

This cottage is overwhelmingly magical. My son and I felt so welcomed by our guests and the cottage itself. B played with the toys, outside on the playground and colored inside on the child size table. We also read every children's book the bedroom offered. (We talked so much about Lobster buoys the rest of Trip. Thanks to the Lobsterman book!). Susan and Jack are wonderfully kind people. Memories of this stay will forever be part of our first time in Maine. Highly recommended.

We loved our stay at spindlewood, the tranquility and the woods. Our five year old enjoyed the stay even more. Susan was very polite, and a great host. Hope to come back soon.

My husband and I were traveling with our 3 year old daughter and this was a perfect place for us or any small family with children under 5. The cottage is a quintessential Maine cabin - charming and basic in it's amenities. What makes this place special is that it is set up for little kids - small tables, toys, books, and an outdoor play area. It kept our daughter busy on a rainy day and she didn't want to leave after two days. This is a very special place, so if you're looking for a place to stay off the beaten path, but yet still near the restaurants and sites of Belfast, Camden and Rockland, you won't regret staying here.

Susan User ProfileSusan is a superhost.

Jack and I have walked to work for years. He to his architectural studio, where he now paints and does sculpture. A bit further along the path is Spindlewood Kinder Cottage, Susan's Waldorf Kindergarten for 30 years that is now an Airbnb. Susan is now traveling to lead LifeWays Early Childhood training programs for teachers and caregivers. Our second and third generation live next door. And three woolly sheep and laying hens live in the barn.
