Built on ledge this brand new home is 'Straight Up' from the Moosehead Lake shoreline. This home has everything you want in a relaxing Maine getaway without giving up the comforts of home.
This large camp sleeps 8 people. The upstairs has two bedrooms (a queen size bed in one room and a queen and twin in the other), a full bath and balcony with reading nook. The master bedroom is on the main floor with a king size bed with an attached full bath. The main floor has a large great room with an amazing stone fireplace, sitting area, dining area, fully equipped kitchen and a great view of the lake & mountains. In addition a laundry room with washer & dryer, a screened in porch and a daylight basement with a sitting/media room with a large TV and a futon for additional sleeping.
Just off Route 15 in Rockwood it is private yet accessible. The dock is in a fabulous spot down over the hill; great for swimming and docking your boat. There is a public launch within walking distance
From the time we located the property, signed a rental contract, and all the way through our vacation, the owners of this property made sure that everything was just perfect. The "camp" was clean, well-maintained, and furnished beautifully, and the information provided by the owners in the ad, the contract, and in subsequent correspondence was accurate and helpful. The proximity to the lakefront at Moosehead Lake was a big plus, as was the use of the dock, and the view of the lake and mountains is superb. The owners of "Straight Up" should be proud of this property - we would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation on a lake!
A gorgeous house in a gorgeous location. The owner was completely helpful throughout the entire signing, and greeted us as we arrived. The camp was clean in every aspect, from floor to ceiling. The view is out of this world, and can be seen from almost every part of the house. Having the use of the dock was fabulous and was taken advantage of every chance we got. Being so close to Mt. Kineo was a great treat for some adventure, and small town stores only 5 minutes away. I would recommend this camp to anyone that is looking for the perfect place to stay on Moosehead.
Moosehead Lake is the largest lake in New England. Explore its 400 miles of shoreline in a boat, kayak or snowmobile. Fish the lake year-round for salmon & lake trout or fly fish in the near by streams. Take a shuttle from Rockwood to Mt. Kineo, ride on the historic steamship Katahdin. Take an aerial tour in a float plane. Go on a moose safari, white water raft, water ski, swim, mountain bike, shop, snowmobile, cross country ski, downhill ski at nearby Big Squaw Mountain ski resort or travel on hundreds of miles of unpaved roads to see eagles, deer and moose! Area hiking trails range from easy to challenging. Golf courses include Mt. Kineo & Squaw Mountain's 9-hole courses. The Gulf Hagas, know as the 'Grand Canyon of Maine' and Canada are both great day trips. The summer season is perfect but the regions fall foliage beats perfect accenting the regions beauty. In the winter Moosehead Lake freezes and the enormous tundra becomes a winter wonderland. The region is a must see paradise!
