Recent Rockwood guest reviews

Very clean great spot on the river with solid (not floating) which was helpful for getting older guys on & off the boats. Had a great experience last years so a little disappointed it wasn’t as perfect….we couldn’t get the dishwasher working, supposed to be a switch somewhere but we could never find it. And wasn’t aware the gas grill was only for summer rentals, ended up having to buy one as 1/2 the food we brought was grill food. And when we arrived, one side of the dock was occupied, come to find out midweek it was the friend of the owner. He moved it but for 1/2 the week we had to double park our boats which was inconvenient. Wifi didn’t work for 2 days and was very limited bandwidth on others. Have a feeling it was the service and not anything to do with the house, but folks were not happy missing the Bruins game. But overall still a nice house to rent

Beautiful home right on Brassau lake. The perfect get away.

Plenty of room (and more to spare) with our family of five: 2 adults and 3 children (ages 3, 8, 10). The lake house was clean and well taken care of inside. Essentials like dishwashing pods, laundry soap, paper products, towels, and shower toiletries were stocked for us. We loved the wood beams and open floor plan. Our youngest loved the outdoorsy décor, especially the moose in one of the bedrooms! The property was gorgeous as well. Plenty of space to park and a huge yard to enjoy. We arrived during a snowstorm, but the property owners made sure to have the drive & walkways clear for us. We used the fire pit, which offers an unmatched view of the lake and mountains. We also played board games on the kitchen table and loved hanging out on the comfy sectional couch. The property owners live next door; they are very friendly and made sure everything went well with our visit. We felt very welcomed! We would have loved to stay longer, maybe forever! We’ll be back to this beautiful place; it was the perfect spot to rest and recharge.

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.
