Rockwood Cottages is a village of housekeeping cottages nestled on the shore of Moosehead Lake in Rockwood, Maine. We are located in the heart of a complete four-season vacation area, an area that has something for everyone to enjoy every season of the year in a natural unspoiled wilderness setting. Here is a beautiful, crystal clear lake, 40 miles long and 20 miles wide. Moosehead is a boaters’ paradise!! Explore sheltered inlets and coves and discover hidden beaches and picnic areas along the 400 miles of shoreline. To the left of our docks is the mouth of the Moose River so if the lake is too rough, canoers and kayakers can find calmer waters in the river.
Service facilities such as gas stations, food outlets, churches, post office, and hospitals are available in the Moosehead area. Enjoy fine restaurants, browse through gift shops, antique shops, tackle stores, and old-fashioned general stores.
JOIN US FOR A FAMILY VACATION IN THE MOUNTAIN WILDERNESS OF MAINE
Our summer guests at Rockwood Cottages can just enjoy the unique peace and solitude of the north woods or join in the many recreational activities in the area. We have nearby golf courses, tennis courts, float plane rides, white water raft trips on the Kennebec and Penobscot rivers, boating, swimming, bicycling and fishing.
The surrounding wilderness area has hundreds of miles of wood roads and trails offering visitors a chance to get back into the woods and providing fishermen access to the many ponds, streams and rivers.
Camera enthusiasts and adventurers can explore the surrounding woods and thrill at the sight of their first moose, deer, bear, partridge and beaver or enjoy picking abundant wild strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.
Hikers can take a leisurely walk down a quiet wooded trail or a challenging climb up Big Squaw, White Cap, Big Spencer or Mt Kineo. Mt Kineo, located directly opposite our docks, rises majestically out of Moosehead Lake forming a 700 ft.. flint cliff.
The Moosehead Lake Region offers some of the most beautiful, remote vacation opportunities in Maine! In 1903, Hanscom Packard said “Moosehead Lake is the jewel of the Maine forest--Kineo the gem, and Moosehead the setting!”
