Property description

There is an unlimited number of things to do from this lakeside house on the shores of Moosehead Lake. If fishing, boating, hiking, kayaking, or rafting fails to move you, lay in the hammock and read a book while the waves lap the shore.

The 'camp' comfortably sleeps nine and is made for a crowd. Two full bathrooms make staying with a larger group feasible. Intentionally equipped without a television, your kids can catch trout from the shore using worms, jump from the dock, go on a crayfish hunt, or try their hand at flat water kayaking. It's all here while mom and dad can comfortably catch some R & R and maintain supervision.

Owner is a former Maine Raft Guide and water enthusiast. Call Ryan today to book your trip and plan adventure for families, couples, or both. Take advantage of boat and kayak rental in the same cove. Call Ryan today and it's not too late (207) 462-3874.

Keywords: Lakeside retreat, deck facing lake, dinner catch brook trout from shore, sleeping loft, bunkhouse in 3/4 finished basement with outside, dock for boating, campfire ring, finished full bath on both levels.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: My family has enjoyed use of this retreat since 1976. What started out as a rustic pole cabin has transformed into a house. Moosehead Lake maintains our devotion, fascination, and willingness to explore after all these years. Our collection of memories continue to grow each season. We hope you find this place as special as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Rockwood, ME, USA:
This is true wilderness and true Maine. Moose, bear, and white tail deer seen every season.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lakeside, lakeside, lakeside and modern convenience. While we once pumped water from the lake to do our dishes, the house now has a washer, dryer, and electric refrigerator. You won't find television here -- on purpose.
