Talk about an outdoor enthusiast’s playground? Rockwood Cottages offers a 4-season rustic playground in the north woods of Maine, directly on Moosehead Lake with a view of Mt. Kineo and miles and miles of open water. Bring your own boat to keep at the private dock, or take one of the canoes out that the owners keep for guests to use. Fish off the pier…or from the canoe…swim in the lake…take a mile long boat ride out to Mt. Kineo (which is actually a peninsula, not an island, but the road to it was closed years ago and is now accessible by boat) and hike the wonderful trails up the 800 foot peak…head out on a guided moose safari (or venture out on your own and hope you see one!). Cook campfire style on the large wood firepit grills down near the dock where you’ll find picnic tables, horseshoe games and rope swings. There’s a gas pump on the dock which is a wonderful convenience to the guests.
Each rustic cabin offers a small, full kitchen with cooking utensils, 2 bedrooms, each cabin accommodating at least 4-8, depending on the bed configuration, linens, towels and a bath with shower. Each has a screened porch with seating and all face the lake.
The current owners are in their 25th year at Rockwood Cottages and have decided to pass on the wonderful lifestyle and tradition of hosting guests (many who become friends) to the next keepers of the cottage. There is quite a good business with an established repeat clientele, however, the current owners do very little advertising and only stay open in the summer. With new owners, a website upgrade and some marketing efforts, this business could really increase substantially. Rockwood Cottages would be absolutely ideal for winter snowmobilers, and even more ideal to offer sled rentals on site. With fishing, hunting, the summer season travelers and the winter snowmobilers, this could be a small year round destination. It’s ready to be taken to that next level.
