And you'll be only five miles from Rockwood proper for in-town conveniences.

The Maine cabin decor and stone fireplace create a welcoming open-design living area.

What a great property, this home really met all our needs. Love that it had separate spaces to go escape to if you wanted to yet also had a wonderful large central area for gathering in the kitchen, watching TV or heading out to the deck. We also really liked how the home was situated on the land and that there was plenty of deck space, some of which was covered which was nice so we could still enjoy enjoy the outdoors even in a light rain. Also it was plenty of grass area which would be great in the summer to play frisbee or some lawn games. But the view of the water and that sandy rocky shoreline was the icing on the cake, especially because there was seating with a fire pit and a hammock down in that area to really take it all in. This is a truly magical destination that we want to definitely return to, maybe next time in a warmer month to take full advantage of the wonderful lake. Our dog absolutely loved it as well and it was so nice to be able to take her with us and enjoy new places with her by our side. Thank you for sharing your home with us for our 25th wedding anniversary.

I loved the location, view, atmosphere, furnishings, fire pit, hammock, and especially the friendly ducks! I named one with a gimpy leg, Bill. Great vacation!

This home is located in a nice private location. The view and water front is very nice. There is a bit of noise from the mountain down the street during the day. There is rock excavation going on and you can hear the crusher and back up alarms from the machines. Otherwise only a logging truck once in awhile. My recommendation for the owners would be to replace the refrigerator because it kept us up a couple of nights. We were told they wouldn't be able to get someone out to look at it for a month. Vaca brought us a small refrigerator. Couldn't put all my food in it but it was the best they could do. At least they were able to give us something. It did get extremely hot in the house and we were not able to turn the fan on in the living room. We had sweat dripping off us for 2 of the days we were there. The spot is worth it though. We tried to stay out at waters edge as long as we could, till it cooled down a bit at night. An additional fan would be really nice. I like to cook and would recommend bringing some of your own pans if your going to do a lot of cooking. There are some pans but the ones that are there are Teflon coated and have lots of the teflon missing. The king size bed in the loft is very nice but ready for a new mattress or mattress pads.
There is 2 mattress covers that have become a little bumpy. Still not bad but its time for some new ones or a mattress. Just a recommendation. Im an extremely picky person with cleanliness. The property is clean maybe a little more detailed dusting on shelves. The tub had a spider web and spider growing in it. I suppose if no one uses it they probably don't bother cleaning it but a rinse would be a good idea so you don't get the webs. maybe our cleaning person didn't have time to finish her cleaning. We arrived at 4:20 and she was still in the house and we waited for her to finish. If you don't mind leaving your home unlocked then you won't mind that the door in the basement and living room can not be locked! I know this was a lot but I'm hoping it helps the owners and future visitors have a more enjoyable visit. It is a lovely home and a spectacular spot. We would love to stay again sometime. I highly recommend this home.

A log cabin on a beautiful lake that is very private and secluded but still not too far from shops and Greenville. We were a group of 6 adults and had plenty of room. Not only could we comfortably all be together for games (inside and out) but also had private spots to chill with a book. The house is well stocked and pretty much has everything you need (including board games and air hockey). We prepared all our meals at the camp and had every tool/utensil needed. Only thing that could make it better would be towels for use by the lake. We didn't need to use the gas fireplace and didn't see any instructions. I'm sure if we wanted to use it we could have gotten the info from the local agent. The few times we texted they responded in a timely manner. We made use of the fire pit a few times; be sure to get some wood for your fires! The weather, while sunny was cool and lots of winds. This made the lake very choppy and difficult to navigate. Perhaps, this is why we almost had the lake to ourselves. We made use of the canoes as well as our own kayaks and floats. Had one successful day of fishing. A few reviewers mention about road noise. While you might hear some noise, the road is not heavily traveled. Even in the middle of the lake we could hear road noise once in awhile. If you're looking to unwind in a beautiful quiet place, this is it. Great place to get away from it all.

We very much enjoyed our stay! Only leaving once to have an early dinner and ice cream one mid-afternoon in town, we stayed on property for the entire week! All amenities, from the easy access to the lake-front to a fully-stocked kitchen allowed us to completely immerse ourselves into a week of relaxation. Our children, 11 and 9, moved between swimming, skipping stones, canoeing, swinging, playing air hockey, reading on the deck, helping to build a fire, and then back to swimming each day. The lake is so clean and quiet and the property was well cared for and very clean. Thank you!

My family of four (kids 10 and 11) and our pup loved this home. We spent our days relaxing by the water, learning to skip stones, canoeing, and swimming. At night we had wonderful bonfires and enjoyed stargazing. We ventured for a hike and did a fishing trip on Moosehead. We cannot wait to go back!

Tip for the tub: hot water heater doesn't heat long enough to fill it but if you fill it partway and then wait about 45 minutes there was enough to almost fill the tub and it was a perfect temperature.
Jim S. Jun 2021
We loved the location, the camp was perfect
Stephanie M. May 2021
Everything!! It was perfect!! We've decided to move out here in the near future, so I'd saying went well ;) thank you

This property was beautiful, with the scenic views sitting right on the lake...it was stunning! Really a cute cabin with a great layout for families. The only problem we had was the lack of communication from the property management. They need to do a better job keeping up the property. We arrived to the cabin with a broken back patio door that didn't lock AND the weather-stripping was completely gone causing a ton of cold air to leak into the house. The heating was definitely not sufficient for the temperatures we had the week of our stay. It was incredibly cold on the main floor with very little heating units, the gas fire place does NOT heat the house enough. My poor kids had to sleep in their sweaters, completely bundled up to stay warm. My suggestion would be to put a space heater in that back bedroom. I tried reaching out via text as the instructions stated on the refrigerator, and received NO response. We had a fire in the fire pit, but first had to try to shovel the snow with a broken shovel and afterwards, cleaned up a bunch of beer cans that were left there from the previous guests. First not sure why people don't clean up their messes and second, the property management should be responsible for that as well. I'm providing this candid feedback in hopes that this is helpful to you and what needs to improve on the property. As a business owner, feedback is important to ensuring return customers/guests. I'd be happy to provide additional feedback and pictures I took of the issues. So for future guests looking to stay, make sure you ask if updates have been made or at least the back door fixed so you don't have to use a chair to keep it closed and locked! I'm sure its a beautiful place to stay in the summer. Not so much in the winter.
Don't book with VRBO, they have TERRIBLE customer service!
Sincerely, wish I could have slept better in this beautiful house.
Manager response:
Hello Heather,We sincerely apologize for the poor correspondence during your stay and any inconvenience this had caused. We are actively hiring and training new agents to ensure that we can provide prompt assistance to all of our guests moving forward. We hope to host you for another pleasant stay in the future!

We went during later march, so we couldn't take advantage of the lake. The Cabin is right on the water and would be great in the summer months for swimming and in the winter months for ice fishing and snowmobiling. We personally would love to come back in the summer. During the afternoon and night, it is very peaceful and quite, with a beautiful view of the night sky over the lake. However, during the day you can hear the loud trucks driving back and forth over the nearby road. The only complaints are that the back door didn't lock and the water heater couldn't handle the large bathtub, making it so you couldn't have a warm bath. The cabin was very well furnished and the kitchen had anything we needed to use. It was a very nice stay!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Miranda. We are glad you enjoyed this cabin and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We will follow up with our local team to check the door lock and water heater, and we hope to have another chance to impress you!

Everything was clean and updated, we will be back!
Justin T. Mar 2021
My family and I had a wonderful stay, we ice fished all weekend and it was so nice to be in a warm cabin while watching our traps
Karen L. Jan 2021
We loved the layout of the cabin and the beautiful views.
Erin M. Nov 2020
Gorgeous, beautifully maintained cabin on a pristine, peaceful lake! View from the cabin is fantastic! Our family enjoyed having the fireplace inside and the fire pit outside. If you love wildlife, peace and quiet, and a stunning night sky, this is the best place to be!
Loren S. Nov 2020
The cabin was beautiful! The upstairs loft was perfect for sleeping but also still being able to enjoy the low light of the fire. The oversized tub was a nice bonus (and bubble bath/bath bombs were available). Being able to overlook the lake while either sitting outside around a fire pit or sitting inside by the fire looking out through the huge glass windows allowed the amazing views to never be missed. Close enough to Greenville and Moosehead Lake but far enough to be more secluded, making a more peaceful getaway.
Sarah W. Oct 2020
Beautiful home on a very peaceful lake. We finally got to see our first moose in the area too!
Jennifer N. Jul 2020
This was an amazing lig cabin on a beautiful lake. It was extremely private and the views are amazing. Waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the water hitting the rocks was tranquil. This is home to relax in and build memories with your family. We enjoyed several hikes in the area and rented a boat for the day. There was plenty to do outdoors. Beautiful lakefront home!
Heather H. Mar 2020
We enjoyed every minute! Great place to go!
Sam S. Mar 2020
I spent the weekend at this lovely cabin with my family, we ice fished, snowmobiled and the kids enjoyed the air hockey table. It was very warm and cozy inside the cabin and plenty of space for us all.
Julie S. Jan 2020
Beautiful cabin in a beautiful setting!
Kevin H. Nov 2019
We had a great stay and the lake to ourselves. It took a little while to find the write wifi password and getting the heat set but after that it was fantastic stay
Richard K. Sep 2019
The house was everything we could want in a great setting. Sleeping arrangements and cooking equipment were fine for our 2 family adventure. The grill, however, was in unusable condition. We cooked on the coals at the fire circle. We did use the canoe provided.
Do not go to Brassua to seriously fish. There is excellent fishing nearby at Moosehead. We hiked at Mt. Williams and Mt. Kineo and the views are stunning.
We would definitely recommend this house and would return.

We loved the Partridge Road Retreat house! My husband, 4 kids (ages 15,14,13 and 11) and two dogs enjoyed our stay.

The home is beautiful. The lake is spectacular.... you really feel like you have the lake to yourself.

We had an issue with the grill that was resolved within 24 hours - which was much appreciated! We brought all of our own food, as we were unfamiliar with the area.

Great area to get away from it all and to unplug. There was WiFi that went out a few times (according to the teenagers) and that was fine with us!

It is a 30 minute ride to Greenville - where there are a few places to eat and a grocery store... we enjoyed the Lake, ATVing, Whitewater Rafting, and Hiking....(along with finishing up some summer reading for back to school ;-)

Great place to reconnect and get away from the busy days of life...

FYI - There is an AMAZING coffee shop in Greenville across from the Grocery store.... Great coffee and homemade desserts and lunches. They are only open in the summer months.

We have been coming to the Moosehead Lake region for the last 6 summers. This is our 3rd time staying in this house, we just LOVE everything about the house and location. The husband and kids fish every day of our trip and they have not been disappointed! This house is very private and secluded but still not too far from town. The house itself is very charming and the owners made some upgrades to furniture since last year which we enjoyed very much! Such and amazing week to unwind in a beautiful quiet place 💙
Barbara H S. May 2019
Rained every day but who cares when you have a place like this. We had some breaks in the weather to get outside and enjoy the lake views. Great place for some major R&R!
Greg D. Nov 2018
This place was fantastic. The location was perfect. Far enough away yet close enough if you need something. The home was extremely clean and well cared for. Anytime you had a question there was usually a small piece of paper tacked to the wall with the answer. House was so big we didn’t even go downstairs. We had to call the 1-800 number once and received outstanding help. I couldn’t ask for more. Will definitely look to go back.
Joyce . Sep 2017
Would definitely rent again. Property description was accurate, location and house were fantastic.
Anthony . Sep 2017
The property was well maintained and in good shape the house was well furnished with everything we needed
Susan . Aug 2017
Our favorite vacation spot! We hope if there are new owners that they will continue to rent the property. We love the peace and quiet, the clean spacious house and the beautiful view of the lake.
