Overview

Rockwood House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

There is an unlimited number of things to do from this lakeside house on the shores of Moosehead Lake. If fishing, boating, hiking, kayaking, or rafting fails to move you, lay in the hammock and read a book while the waves lap the shore.

The 'camp' comfortably sleeps nine and is made for a crowd. Two full bathrooms make staying with a larger group feasible. Intentionally equipped without a television, your kids can catch trout from the shore using worms, jump from the dock, go on a crayfish hunt, or try their hand at flat water kayaking. It's all here while mom and dad can comfortably catch some R & R and maintain supervision.

Owner is a former Maine Raft Guide and water enthusiast. Call Ryan today to book your trip and plan adventure for families, couples, or both. Take advantage of boat and kayak rental in the same cove. Call Ryan today and it's not too late (207) 462-3874.

Keywords: Lakeside retreat, deck facing lake, dinner catch brook trout from shore, sleeping loft, bunkhouse in 3/4 finished basement with outside, dock for boating, campfire ring, finished full bath on both levels.

About Ryan Mahan

My family has enjoyed use of this retreat since 1976. What started out as a rustic pole cabin has transformed into a house.

Moosehead Lake maintains our devotion, fascination, and willingness to explore after all these years. Our collection of memories continue to grow each season.

We hope you find this place as special as we do.

Ryan Mahan purchased this house in 1976

Why Ryan Mahan chose Rockwood

This is true wilderness and true Maine. Moose, bear, and white tail deer seen every season.

What makes this house unique

Lakeside, lakeside, lakeside and modern convenience. While we once pumped water from the lake to do our dishes, the house now has a washer, dryer, and electric refrigerator.

You won't find television here -- on purpose.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5
What a great home! Thank you Ryan for opening your vacation home to us. We had a wonderful time hiking, kayaking, fishing and exploring all the lake had to offer. The house fit us all comfortably and was exactly as pictured and described. Loved the view of the lake while sitting drinking our coffee in the morning and the stars at night while we sat at the fire ring. We all had one of best vacations ever!

The Magic of Moosehead

  • 5 of 5
This is not a just another rental house. This is a home and we are so appreciative that Ryan and his family shared it with us for a week. If you like the outdoors, plan your escape. Days filled with hiking, fishing and kayaking. The sunrise is rivaled only by the sunset and starlit sky. If you want to break away from the lake for a day and are game there is fantastic white water rafting nearby. Wonderful family memories made and we are all hoping to return!

Thank you for sharing your little gateway with us, we came back home refreshed and energized. Even our Golden Retriever was in 7th heaven at your place!

Owner's Response: And by the sounds it, some time on the water was a good recipe as well! Anna, we appreciate your feedback and the evident pleasure you had on your vacation. There's no place better on the planet I know of. You're always welcome back to Moosehead -- Ryan
