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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"We want you to know that we had a great vacation while renting your beautiful camp this week. Susan and I have been enjoying the Kineo region for about 25 years now. We have stayed in a lot of cabins and camp[s in the area, but never have we had all the comforts of home. Such a quiet and private spot also...wonderful place to relax."



We thank you.

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

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

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!

Moosehead Magic

  • 5 of 5
We have vacationed at Moosehead Lake several times in the last ten years and it never disappoints. Ryan's family cabin was perfect for us. The listing description was accurate. The cabin was comfortable for our family of seven (plus dog) and was well maintained. Well stocked kitchen, nice furniture (including beds) and more than adequate in every way. We enjoyed the ping pong table, board games and the great selection of books on the day that we had rain. We were outside as much as possible and loved the use of the kayaks, swimming, long walks on the dirt roads, campfires and just sitting at the waterfront soaking up the view. Proximity to The Birches is terrific for dinner, drinks or boat rentals. Ryan was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely responsive to my questions and very informative about local areas of interest. I would not hesitate to recommend this cabin to anyone seeking peace and quiet in a fabulous location. I hope that we can make it next summer. Thanks again Ryan!

Owner's Response: Craig -- I am so glad Moosehead and the camp provided a respite. I remember commiserating about our work-technology-leashes so I'm glad you could unplug. Your booking allows us to pay taxes and fuel etc and we are certainly grateful. Best to you and your family and you're welcome back to the West Shores of Moosehead any time!
