Area was great for day trips by car. Rental property had everything one could need. The site on the river is magical. We would definitely consider a revisit.

A true retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this darling saltbox with a warm, comfortable interior. Wonderful landscaping and flowers galore setting on top of Gilbert's Pool which invited you to go fishing, kayaking or just set and listen to the river run by. We did everything, what a delight to have everything you needed to enjoy your stay offered by the owner. We came to celebrate our mother's life, a King who grew up on Moose Head River, and did that and so much more. So wonderful to see family, eat Maine seafood and have a wonderful retreat to come home to. Bill, the owner is more than helpful and takes wonderful care of his property. I am looking forward to returning and wouldn't stay anyplace else. Thanks so much Bill!!

Exactly as described and lots more!

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as described. It is beautiful inside and outside! The owner clearly pays attention to every detail and was available for any questions about the cabin or the area. We had access to all the equipment (mountian bikes, kayaks and canoe) listed for this cabin, which saved us money not having to rent them. The river view is amazing, and at night we could hear it as we laid in bed. The beds were comfortable, and all the linens are provided. We used the firepit almost every evening. We think that this location on the river was better than being on Moosehead Lake due to the strong winds that we encountered on the lake. We brought tubes with us and had a great time tubing on the river starting up stream by the dam and finishing at the cabin. There are many activities in the area so the cabin provides a place to relax or be active. There are boat rentals nearby to explore Moosehead Lake, whitewater rafting and ATV rentals within 45 minutes of Rockwood. We had an amazing time and will go back to this cabin again.

The Rockwood, Moosehead Lake Region, offers one of the best experiences in Northern Maine. Nestled in the heart of the best land locked salmon and trout fishing in the State. The region is the gateway to vast wilderness lands offering excellent hunting, canoeing, ice fishing, kayaking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. If you like hiking or playing golf, Mt. Kineo is definitely a place you don't want to miss. The golf course is one of the oldest courses in New England, built in 1880's and offers 9 to 18 holes at a very modest rate. The mountain has some very scenic hiking trails for all abilities. Daily shuttles from the Rockwood Public Boat Landing (7 days a week). Other local activities that are available - guided fishing and hunting trips, snowmobile rentals and guided tours, ATV rentals and even local seaplane rides. White water rafting trips run daily within 45 minutes from Rockwood all summer long.
