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.

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.

This is true wilderness and true Maine. Moose, bear, and white tail deer seen every season.
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.
This was another fantastic visit...we will continue to come here!!
We couldn't have picked a better place to stay for our first trip to Moosehead Lake. The pictures do not do the cottage justice. It's well equipped for cooking and all accommodations. We had a party of 5 adults and 3 young boys. The kids loved the downstairs with the ping pong table, books and toys. There was plenty for them to do inside and out (kayaks, hammock, feeding ducks, swimming) - they didn't seem to miss a TV or their video games all week. There were even gates on hand to help keep our smallest child out of trouble.
I'd highly recommend this cottage for a family getaway. The location is scenic and peaceful. It's tricky to find at night - so I'd recommend arriving in daylight.
We had a wonderful vacation. The cabin was perfect! We had a great time on the lake. The weather cooperated and we spent lots of time on the water and had several evening fires in the fire pit! We had all the comforts of home and the kitchen was stocked with all tools/appliances needed to prepare great meals for my family. The yard was a perfect size for our 2 dogs and the upper deck was a perfect place for them and us to sit in the sun in the morning and for them to relax while meals were being prepared! It was a perfect spot for our vacation. The pictures truly do not do it justice! Beautiful! Thank you so much! We hope to go back next summer.
The property was clean, well maintained, and stocked with necessities. Most importantly the property was as described in the listing thus enabling us to select a vacation property that met our needs. Adults and children all enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation spot in backwoods Maine.
This is a very nice cottage / house on the lake. The owner is a great communicator and was very helpful in making sure our stay went well. That stood out and really made a difference. The house has all the regular needs including a well setup kitchen, laundry area downstairs, gas grill, and a nice dining space with a view of the lake. The deck is in the shade in early afternoon and evening, which is really pleasant. The house is aligned to the east and open, so you get up early to enjoy a wonderful day on the lake. The dock is simple, but allows good lake access with a ladder to get in or out of the water easily. The lawn was mowed, which was nice as well. All very nice.
If you have mobility issues, be aware that the stairs to the loft sleeping area are quite steep. You can as an alternative sleep in the lower downstairs area. Also the shore is rocky without a beach, but it is quite workable to use the dock, or go over the large rocks. The lake water is very clean and very swim-able.
This property is wonderfully appointed, beautiful private location, clean and has everything you need for a relaxing and back to nature family vacation! Spent fabulous days kayaking, hiking, boating, swimming, golfing, lounging on the deck and hammock. Just bring your clothes, food & libations and the rest is waiting for you! Magical Rockwood location on Moosehead overlooking Mt. Kineo, fabulous sunrises and shooting stars!! Thank you Mahan family for sharing your spectacular getaway. We had a perfect stay and would love to come back for another summer vaca!!
