Wonderful, spectacular, perfect, clean, great view

  • 5 of 5

We has a wonderful time. The house was perfect, clean, and had great views of the lake from the windows. The place was private and we watched the Kineo shuttle make trips across the lake and back many times a day. We saw the Katahdin steamship from the outside deck. Saw moose and foxes in the area, and there were resident ducks that came up on deck. Our 2 corgis loved it there. They had to walk out on the dock everyday to check out the water. The owner was very helpful, kind, and answered many questions. In one word "Spectacular!"

Rustic but comfortable. The view is spectacular. We loved all the wildlife that visited.

  • 4 of 5

The Rockwood lake house was delightful. We had a wonderful 2 week stay and would love to return in future years. Some suggestions would be to be more specific about directions once entering Spring St. and to place a number on the house, so it could be more easily located. None of the houses have numbers, so since we arrived at night, we felt completely lost. Two other suggestions would be to provide shades for the upstairs bedroom and an outdoor thermometer available either on the porch or outside the kitchen window. Otherwise we loved our stay, and we loved Moosehead Lake and Rockwood. Such a lovely location for a peaceful 2 weeks!

a mixed experience

  • 3 of 5

The positives were significant: world-class view, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, immediate access to this magnificent lake, great hiking options in the area. However, I would be remiss to not mention some issues. The property is pretty 'tired': stained rugs, worn furniture, outside is in clear need of paint, inside is cluttered - leaving it feeling like we were living in someone else's home (we were assured by the gent who does the care-taking that the cottage is solely a rental). A couple other strange things happened that colored the experience: the place was dirty upon arrival (with garbage piled at the entry to the home), unfinished laundry filled the washer and drier, the back door was open, etc. These issues appear to have been an anomaly and Holly was immediately responsive, very apologetic, explaining there was a miscommunication with the person who cleans. Holly made an adjustment to the rental cost as a result. A much-appreciated response. We were, however, unable to get a response for several days to one more issue: the lock to the place became broken during our stay, so we then had to enter via a window (one time) and, for the rest of our stay, left the place unlocked while we were on trips. Sooo....thus the mixed review.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The house, grounds, bunkhouse, dock were all great. We loved the dock and the beautiful view of Mt. Kineo! The owner was very responsive when we called about an issue. Very relaxing just sitting and reading on the deck. We canoed, kayaked, hiked up Mt. Kineo, hiked Moxie Falls, and visited Pittston Farm. Saw lots of moose, a bear, beavers, eagles, deer, hawks, and hummingbirds. Lovely place to stay!

Close to Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this beautiful property for 8 days and it was perfect. It is close to the boat launch and has a wonderful dock for for the boat, a good mooring, and a good swimming for our grandkids. The camp was perfect: well equipped kitchen, deck, large living room, and a bunk house for a quiet nap. The washer and dryer were so convenient for drying beach towels. We were close to Kineo and enjoyed the hike to the top on a beautiful day as well as many boat rides up Moose River. The living room was large enough for an evening movie night with the whole family and there was plenty of room for our families vehicles and our boat trailer. The log cabin Rockwood church is within walking distance and is a must see. The owner was a pleasure to deal with.
