Recent Rockwood vacation rental reviews

This was our 10th year staying here and we just absolutely love it. Always very clean upon arrival. Perfect location, very private, great for swimming and it has all the amenities you need. I love the quality time we get to spend together playing board games, kayaking, paddle boarding, hanging around the fire pit, fishing etc.. It always feels like home when we pull in the driveway. Unfortunately we were too late booking for next summer but hope to be back again the following year!!

Waterfront views, spacious interior

Beautiful spot, and the house was generally well appointed but I would suggest that since there is no cell or Wi-Fi investing in a flatscreen TV with dish for when there is bad weather is a requirement. Also, no big lobster pot but plenty of nonessential small pots and pans. A camper size grill is NOT acceptable for a home; you need a full size grill with a full size LP tank. Lastly, we could not find a hammer or screwdriver anywhere and so a small tool kit would come in handy (that was really for our needs, and had nothing to do with the home but would have been nice.) And so overall the home is nice except all four ppl have to sleep in one room (one bed is a futon) and the stairs to get up to the bedroom are treacherous in the middle of the night. Love the private beach and solitude of the beautiful lake. Lovely views!

The lakeside village of Rockwood is one such community offering a chance to unplug and unwind in the beauty of central Maine. So plan for plenty of fresh air and picturesque scenery just beyond your vacation rental’s doors in this enchanted destination.

Where is Rockwood, ME?

Tucked into a pine- and spruce-laden landscape, Rockwood sits off Highway 6 on the western edge of Moosehead Lake, the state’s largest body of freshwater. With little discernible population, it’s an unincorporated town that swells in spring and summer with tourists, but lies largely dormant in other seasons. Lying 89 miles northwest of Bangor and 173 miles north of bustling Portland, Rockwood is the kind of place where everyone’s on a first-name basis.

Things to do in Rockwood, ME

Step outside your vacation rental to breathe in the fresh, piney air, then lace up some hiking boots for a wilderness walk at Mt. Kineo State Park. Wind around the park’s perimeter to find scenic lookouts with panoramic views high above the rolling hill landscape. Pause at the pinnacle of 1,789-foot Mt. Kineo and snap postcard-worthy pictures where a 700-foot cliff rises straight up from the water.

Back in town, fuel up from your hike at the Rockwood Bar & Grill, where classic American entrees like hot wings and burgers are served up alongside Maine staples such as lobster rolls and wild blueberry pie, all in a decidedly low-key atmosphere. Looking to save a few bucks? Instead of lunch in town, opt for a homemade meal made in your very own vacation rental.

With your hunger satisfied, head back into Rockwood’s unbridled outdoors on a sunset sailing trip around the lake. Gray Ghost Camps Sailing Charters in town offers daily departures for groups of any size, as well as fishing charters with experienced guides that’ll help you land a trophy trout.

Day trips from Rockwood, ME

Our vacation rentals in Rockwood put you within easy reach of other scenic towns, wilderness areas, and lakeside attractions. Head south on Highway 6 for 19 miles to reach small-town Greenville, where you can sunbathe and swim at any of the town’s three public beaches, or launch a boat at Greenville Junction.

Keep going east from Greenville (34 miles one-way from Rockwood) to reach the Hundred-Mile Wilderness, a remote section of mixed deciduous and evergreen woods with abundant wildlife, pristine ponds and lakes, and one of the most challenging stretches of the iconic Appalachian Trail.

But if you’re not up for a challenging hike, you could continue your exploration on Highway 6, turning north to Beaver Cove on the lake’s eastern shores or driving on to Lily Bay State Park. There you can enjoy more beach time, let your kids climb around on the park’s playground, rent a canoe or kayak to explore the lake, and hike on lakeside nature trails. Plus if you come during winter, the park’s trails are great for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

Small-town charm meets the best of the outdoors in Rockwood. Make your next Maine getaway one to remember by staying in one of our Moosehead Lake vacation rentals.
