Dog-Friendly Lakefront Cabin with Private Dock, Epic Views of Lake & Mt Kineo

Wash your worries away on Moosehead Lake at this charming cabin, featuring an unbeatable lakefront location, views of the water and Mt. Kineo from your back deck, and a private dock for swimming, fishing, and boating fun! You can even bring the family dog for a small nightly fee.

Located just steps from the water on the central western shore of the lake, this cabin offers a quiet location free of the noise and distractions of town. The large, grassy yard is ideal for campfires, lawn games, and barbecues, and the pebble beach is great for swimming and wading.

This cabin is well cared for and has hosted vacationing families for generations. Rock away your mornings on the back deck admiring the view and go for a swim off the dock to feel refreshed. Use the fully equipped kitchen to cook up tasty meals and fire up the gas grill to cook up your fresh catch of the day. Lakeside dining is a must at the patio table on the dock. Get cozy every night next to the gas fireplace with a book or a show on the cable TV.

This is a vacation you're not likely to forget - book today!

*Please note, due to its remote location cell service is notoriously spotty.

Everything...particularly the privacy and the wildlife.

Wonderful location that can’t be beat. Porch sits right over the the water. The dock is solid and we’ll built. Having wifi and TV is a plus. Beds very comfy. Having coffee in the morning and happy hour at the end of the day on the porch rockers is pure bliss. The owner is extremely nice and very helpful with knowledge of the area. The eagles have a nest on the little island and it was nice to see them soar above us. Kitchen is well equipped. Plenty of counter space. Lots of water pressure in the shower…I could rinse my hair in under 10 seconds lol. The only thing I would change is to replace the futon with a comfortable sleep sofa. Unless you’re 6 feet tall it is not comfortable to sit and read. The rocking chairs worked fine and I also brought my favorite folding chair. It was a very relaxing week and we would love to return! Thank you Nancy for everything and thank you for allowing dogs. Our Casey had a good time too!

Great little cabin in the perfect spot. Enjoyed my morning coffee on the front deck staring across Moosehead Lake at Mt. Kineo. Got to watch a nesting pair of eagles on the small island at the mouth of the river. Cabin is super cozy and beds were comfy too.

The Cabin was located in a quiet area of Moose head lake. It was clean and over the lake equipped with everything you needed for indoor and outdoor activities. We saw how bright the milky-way was at night. Make sure to bring your own firewood and food as the closest grocery store is 20-25 minutes away. We would go back for sure! Thank you for hosting us at your lovely cabin. Anya

The cabin is small. The twin beds were new to us, but we superseded them. The locale was great. Used the grill outside. Steamed local lobsters another. Worked within the COVID parameters to eat very well. We will go back. Our 11 year old had a great time, too. The owners were great and accommodating.

This was the perfect camp for our family of 4. The kids enjoyed the dock and you can't beat being right on the water. Beautiful view and all the amenities you need to be comfortable.
Anil N. Jun 2020
The cabin was amazing!!!we could find all the facilities and had no issues what so ever. It was a beautiful cozy water front cabin right on the edge of the Moosehead Lake . You need not take a Boat or pier to fish , you can do it right from the balcony. My kid caught few from the balcony and she was very excited. This was the best experience one could think of ! The view we had in the evening was just fantastic!! All day long my family and I were playing in the lake or were outside.

Some people mentioned about internet and location finding issue but we did not encounter any .Apple map has the location but If you are using google map you need to search for “Mclver’s, McIver road, Rockwood“

Thank you so much!!

We loving getting away to Rockwood. The cottage fantastic sitting right on the water. At light we leave the back door open and listed to the waves and the Loons. It is a calming place to relax and realize what life is really about.
Matthew E. Sep 2019
Everything!!!!! Location,being right on the Lake literally!! Comfy beds,well maintained and the Owners are really very nice!!
Sean B. Sep 2019

Anne M C. Sep 2019
Got the rest that I needed. My son and I and our dog had a great time. Can not wait to do it a gain next year. Thank you for letting us shear your wonderful place ………..

My husband, our two labs and I stayed a week at this wonderful little cottage. Follow the directions and it’s very easy to find. The cottage was the perfect size for us and we loved being right on the lake! The views are amazing and your close to Greenville if you want to do some shopping. We had the opportunity to meet the owners and they were very friendly and graciously offered to help fix our boat trailer. We met some of our neighbors who were also very nice! We saw 10 moose, lions, ducks and a bald eagle! We’re looking forward to visiting again 😊

We enjoyed this location & home. Our second time to stay here. The perfect getaway. Peaceful secluded and full of Maine nature. Great activities including fishing boating hiking and nature sightseeing. Cabin is clean well kept and amply stocked with all household needs.
Taylor W. Jun 2019
This little slice of heaven is just what we needed for a getaway. Right on the water. The porch was perfect at night for listening to the loons and relaxing. And during the day to just stare at the beautiful Mt. kineo. The dock was perfect for fishing, and I wish we had stayed longer to enjoy the outdoor table area to eat meals. The main page says there is no internet, but there was great internet for us, a box right in the cabin, which was very nice, if you need it. There is a grill for cooking, and a nice big field for pets and kids to run around. The only thing that I was bummed about, most home rental places I have stayed, there has been things leftover, such as ketchup, mustard, spices, tinfoil, that kind of stuff. All you have here are the minimums, plates, utensils, cups, etc. Bring your own coffee too! (Not sure if this is normal, but for me it was not) the 4 twin beds were a little odd too, for couples a queen in one of the rooms would be nice. BUT! Those are only my opinions. We saw some moose on the main road up, and did some great hikes, that were all close (within an hour, which is close for this area) This was perfect and just what we needed! I would absolutely reccomend this property, and come back too!

The cabin was clean and had all the modern features but was an old log cabin used by guides years ago. The view of Mt Kineo across the lake was priceless. The owners were very nice and welcoming.

The cabin was immaculate, perfectly equipped, just the right size for us, gorgeous back porch right over the lake. Quiet area which is exactly what we were looking for to unwind. Two small issues - the owners have a home next door but I believe they were gone for the season. Your internet signal is from their home and as they were not there - you guessed it, no internet. Not the end of the world but but know there is also sketchy cell service. The second thing to know is that there are 4 TWIN beds. It is not completely clear from the pictures. Again not a big deal just a heads up. HOWEVER, the address does not show up on any GPS . We called VRBO when we realized this. No way to contact the owners for any sort of help. VRBO in Oregon found some outdated note with additional directions stating that the address "may not" show up on GPS. The store referenced was a house which was long since closed so there was only a "for rent" sign outside, no way to know that was the referenced store. The bridge was a small two lane bridge only visible from the other side of the road on the way back after passing it and driving 15 minutes beyond and turning around. I know this sounds stupid but it is a very rural area and road signs are sparse. We were actually so frustrated trying to find the place that we were 10 minutes away from abandoning the stay. Someone needs to have the owners update the directions. "drive 20 minutes to the (yes only) blinking light" has no real meaning - 20 minutes as what speed?? How about "drive 35 miles"? The actual GPS coordinates would have been more helpful. If you are planning on renting this cabin, it is beautiful, but be certain you know where you are going!
Manager response:
We’re sorry that VRBO’s listing of this home was incorrect regarding the internet and bed sizes. We are reaching out to confirm their information is accurate. Thank you.

Nice view

Great view! Clean and comfortable.
Rebecca L. Sep 2018
This was our third year in a row staying at this cabin and for good reason. The location is unbeatable. Everything from the view, to the porch & rocking chairs, to the dock and fire pit is just perfect.
Jason H. Jul 2018
The camp was very clean and rather private. We had a wonderful stay and the neighbors were so welcoming! We would go back!!!
Sean G. Jul 2018
We found this cabin and knew it was perfect for our last minute getaway to Moosehead. The views are incredible, the house is clean and well-appointed. We had a great stay.
Cathy L. Jun 2018
The cabin was perfectly located with a porch almost hanging over the water, a platform to dine on, a dock going out into the water, a wonderful view, loons communicating to each other, many other birds. Great walking area. The interior was just what you would expect something called a cabin would look like. Well equipped kitchen. There were just 2 of us; would probably be smallish for more; although we were there in mid May and for much of the time had to be inside due to cool weather. It was perfect of us! Cathy

We loved it. We expect to plan another with you in the same area in the next year. We were really surprised what a nice property it was. Well kept, welcoming, and private. Thank you, we loved it. It was a beautiful cabin in a well kept private area. We were over joyed at the attention to detail and thought put into what a visitor might need and providing everything we could need, right down to the outdoor cooking amenities.

The highlight was making (and eating) a blueberry/blackberry pie ...(I picked the berries) in a cast iron skillet. What fun! The new and improved deck is absolutely amazing...we watched ducks, geese, deer, as well as a newly fledged great blue heron who decided to fish next to the dock. Fantastic!
Stephen . Jul 2017
The property was amazing, great view, water access, new dock and deck, the owners were great!
James . Jul 2017
Enjoyed it very much. Our first trip to the Moosehead Lake area. Right on the lake, difficult to get any closer. Really enjoyed sitting on the front deck.
