About kathryn townsend
My husband and I grew up in Connecticut and moved to Maine in 2000. We live right outside of the city of Portland. Moosehead Lake was one of the first places we traveled to during our first summer here and we fell in love. What an amazing place to have only 3 hours away from home. From our first trip to the lake we have always dreamed about buying a family compound on the water. Every year as we travel to different Lakes we always look at what is available to purchase. We have a lot of family so ultimately thought that finding a family compound would be ideal. We continued to look for over 10 years but we are very picky and wanted the right place and the perfect spot. When we found this property we new it was rare. So private, on the lake and a perfect place to invite family where everyone could have their own sleeping quarters.

Why kathryn townsend chose Rockwood
Moosehead is a very special place. The Lake is the perfect location for people looking for a unique outdoor experience. The region is often referred to as 'God's Country' by locals. Moosehead is largest lake east of the Mississippi contained in one state. A home to nature lovers looking for a secluded getaway. There a so many activities to keep you busy year round ranging from fishing, hunting, camping, white water rafting, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, exploring, skiing, snowmobiling, golfing, sailing, photography, viewing wildlife or just taking in the natural beauty of the region. This camp is the perfect place for our two boys to spend their summer. During the day we fish, swim, take drives to go moose hunting or the camps are also within 20 miles of the quaint town of Greenville, Maine which has many restaurants, shops and a local hospital. The boys love the vintage candy store and getting ice-cream. At night we love to cook so we bbq outside, sit on the dock and fish or read a good book by the fire.
What makes this Lodge unique
Although, we are nature lovers we also love our modern amenities and Deer Lodge has the perfect balance between nature and convenience. Internet is included.

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful property on Moosehead Lake! The owners were very responsive and helpful with anything we needed before and during our stay. Gorgeous sunset and sunrise views!
Beautiful week with our children and grandchildren
What a wonderful week we had! The location and views at your camp were just amazing. Beautiful sun rises and sun sets! The atmosphere of your cabins and setting just made everyone relax and take a deep breath. Our adult children became kids and just had such fun on the water. Dave brought along a big blow up raft that was tons of fun plus we had our own canoe and kayaks. My son’s 1 yr. old baby was amazingly good and loved the water with her life jacket, even in the kayak, dad was so proud. We all watered to the cove down on the R where the water was warm to swim and explore. Dan my son in law had a great time diving down just south of the mornings and kept finding treasures,some old and some not so old, we kept 2 tiny bottles and a piece of china he found for a project. He wrote in the lodge book about his depth finder that he and his 8 yr. old son made and described what to do. You can certainly toss it, but I guess it was just fun to build on the theme about the history of the lake and hidden treasures. We had stories around the camp fire about what life on the lake may have been like long ago. We climbed Mt Kineo ( steep Indian Trail... everyone!) fished, swam, and had crayfish races off your dock. Have a hilarious video of our dog who was waiting so patiently watching the races, and my grand daughter who named the last biggest one, hoping to keep him in what the kids called the hot tub ( little pool area to the R of dock as you step down the steps ) and then as the crayfish was set down to admire his size, Paddy, our dog, made a quick lunge with his Spaniel nose and grabbed him... so gross ! Tears from the grand daughter but we’re hoping the crayfish grows back his tail 😳� and tossed him back to the lake of healing waters! We loved the games we found in the bunk cabin and had some fun competitions. Thank you for making your wonderful camp available for us to enjoy and make some Moosehead Lake memories as a family. Peter the oldest grandchild made a beautiful walking stick and couldn’t part with it but he left it by the wood pile “so others can enjoy it”. Kat and Dan saw 2 baby black bears cross the dirt road when driving out on departure day, they were so very excited. We all went home rested and in love with Moosehead Lake and the area of your beaufitul and comfortable camp.
Thank you for hauling everyone North to Deer Lodge for your summer vacation and taking such great care of the camps and the solar system... The walking stick will remain a fixture of the lodge. I hope that your stay was worthy of a return someday - thanks for the sunken treasure advice, the boys are diving tomorrow.
Fantastic week with family at Deer Lodge
We just returned from a wonderful 6-day stay at Deer Lodge and loved every bit of it. The cabins were comfortable for all - from an 8 month old baby to my 65 year old mother. The property strikes the perfect balance between rustic / off-the-grid and just enough modern comforts (i.e. comfy beds and wifi). The view of the lake is spectacular and as Christian recommended, the sunrise is breathtaking! Kathy and Christian were incredibly responsive to all of our questions and provided great info about the area. Thanks to Christian, we did end up spotting a moose where he told us to look! We truly hope to return again one day.
Wonderful guests! Very friendly and respectful and took amazing care of our property. Thanks so much for staying and we are so glad you got to see a moose. Come back any time!
Family vacay at the marvelous Deer Lodge, courtesy of the generous and accommodating Townsend family, who took great care to ensure we had an unforgettable time on Moosehead Lake! The views can't be beat and we loved coming together for meals in the main camp at the end of each day. Some of the special touches/decor/books they've picked out specifically for the camp make it a very special place and it is stocked with sporting/play equipment---a huge bonus for our active extended family. We spent all week outside! Close enough to Greenville to grocery shop, etc., but far enough away to be away from it all. Thanks so much!
If you are anything like me and have an inner-Boy Scout, Rockwood Lodge will not disappoint. Think Next Gen Boy Scout though. Our 'cabin' was retro-fitted to make you feel like you are playing the part, only it also comes with things like a fireplace, full bath, fridge, and a fire pit right out the back door. And that was only one of the camps. So dreamy. The main camp is open and welcoming with views all around you. It is the perfect balance of spacious and cozy. The owners were incredibly cool and resourceful with loads of information about the property, the sights and the local fun. Truly special spot that is not to be missed.
You are welcome back anytime! Such a great guest:)
Amazing, relaxing trip. Beautiful property
This property is phenomenal. The cabins are well maintained and very comfortable. It's a unique property with several cabins so everyone has their own space if you go with more than one family. The lake is pristine and incredibly beautiful. We had a fantastic week here.
Property is approximately 20-25 minute drive to Greenville Maine where there is a village with many restaurants, inns, ice-cream shops, antique stores, bank etc...
Marina for boat rentals 4-5 miles away, golf range, sea-plane rides, moose cruise, ATVing, hiking, hunting and much more all within 4-30 miles.
Great for watching fall Foliage, snow mobiling and ice fishing.
