About Libby Mitchell

My family fell in love with Moosehead Lake and Kineo in the 70"s. Finally, we built our special log home. Our family gathers there whenever possible--even in the winter when a snowmobile is required to cross the ice. My husband Jim wanted this place for our four children, nine grandchildren, and all the other wonderful folk who have joined our family circle. We lost Jim last September but his memory shines bright on all who come to enjoy our piece of paradise.

Our house on Kineo provides an extraordinarily comfortable and private experience in a truly unique setting. It is spectacular, but it does require a bit of effort. Kineo Peninsula is only accessible by boat -- from the Rockwood dock, it is a 5 minute boat crossing to reach our boat slip. Once on Kineo proper, our home is a 5-10 minute golf cart ride from the docks. We can provide a helping hand arrival service that includes transfer from Rockwood to the house itself. Our golf cart and pro-hauler are both available for rent for your stay, and there is a nearby marina that can provide boat rentals. A boat is recommended, but it is not necessary as there is a public ferry, The Kineo Launch, which makes the crossing between Kineo and Rockwood several times a day. No cars are allowed on Kineo. Besides Rockwood, the nearest town is Greenville - a 20 minute drive from Rockwood. There is a major grocery store and outdoor gear store in Greenville called the Indian Hill Trading Post.

My family spent the week recently and this place is AMAZING. The home is spacious, immaculate and luxurious (even nicer than the pictures show) and the island itself is magical.

The family was so helpful in getting us in and situated and we really appreciated that. They were always just a phone call away w/ any questions we had. The locals were also very friendly and very helpful.

Our children (ages 2-19) really enjoyed the golf cart rides and exploring the island, looking for wildlife. We sat by the fire, made smores, BBQ'd, played board games, watched DVD's, went for walks, fished, boated, golfed, hung out at the clubhouse, ate at fantastic restaurants and much more. Believe it or not, there was lots of peaceful down time too. We all got to catch up as a family w/out computers, TV, cellphones, texting and all the craziness. It was a very special time for us.

Kineo Island is almost surreal in it's beauty. We've never seen such a place. There are so many memories that'll last us a lifetime. We long to get back there and you can bet we will.

Perfect family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Our getaway was the epitome of relaxation. Libby was the most hospitable of any of our past rentals to date. She managed to predict all of our needs for island living including fueled up golf carts, boat slips and a brand new charcoal grill. Our sun soaked days were consumed by hiking, swimming in pristine waters and golf on a well maintained course, all steps from our front door. Kineo is a special quiet place and a treat to discover. Our family has so many precious memories from our week there.

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Mitchell house was an experience that my entire family will cherish for a lifetime. To begin with, one of my grown daughters said this house just feels like home... it is incredibly comfortable, has everything that you could ever need for your family, and is in one of the most beautiful areas in Maine. The best part of Kineo is that there are no vehicles or stores. We hiked, biked, ran, paddleboarded, played golf,and kayak and more importantly spent a lot of time together as a family and this is priceless. If you are looking for a great family vacation where you just appreciate your family this is the place to go. Libby, the owner is amazing, helpful, and so open with her house. If you are looking for a once in a lifetime FAMILY vacation, this is the place and the memories you will gain will amaze you and make you glad you went. You will be relaxed and at peace when you leave and sorry to be getting back into a car!!!!!!

wonderful vacation in a unique setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family consisting of ourselves plus our two adult children, their spouses and their children (9 of us in all) ) spent the week of 8/13-8/20/16 at the Mitchells. The house was comfortable and well-appointed with more than enough space to accommodate all of us. The Mitchells were always available to answer questions before and during our trip either by phone or email. They made us feel most welcome and they were generous in the use of the golf cart and "rhino" with gas provided which made it so easy to get around. We also enjoyed biking (brought our own supplemented with theirs), kayaking and hiking. We were able to kayak over to Kineo from the dock in Rockwood in about a half hour, but had to wait a day to bring the kayaks over because it was raining on the day of arrival. Being on the water in the late afternoon and early morning was magical. Some of the family also played golf. Most days included time at pebble beach where the children loved plunging into the lake from the rope swing.

All in all it was a relaxing vacation away from crowds, noise and cars which will provide us with many happy memories.

The house was fantastic and Mt Kineo is magical

  • 5 of 5

This is a new house on a great island on Moosehead Lake. We meet some of the owners when we got there and they were so gracious. All that we needed for a wonderful 2 weeks was present-great kitchen, lots of towels and bedding, comfortable chairs, open space to hang out, and of course the fun golf cart and ATV. This house is made for family get togethers and really fits a lot of people. The finished basement or "kids cave" has 4 bunk beds, comfortable sofas and a full bath. We had some hot days and it was so cool in the basement.

Mt Kineo is a place to relax and re-connect. The golfing is wonderful. We canoed frequently, climbed the mountain, and took great walks around the island. My favorite was our twice daily swims at pebble beach-crystal clear, brisk-so refreshing- I miss it. Paul who is the supervisor at the golf course is so helpful and his wife Mary is the greatest baker- try her woopie pies at the clubhouse and you can order the most divine carrot cake. Fridays the lobster truck comes into Rockwood which is a treat.

So it was a magical stay and I would highly recommended it we will be back.

A+ House and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation! It rained a lot so we spent more time than expected in the house. The house design was perfect for our family of 9 (6 adults, 3 kids) plus one dog. The house is cozy and quiet with plenty of room for everyone to have a comfortable place to sit and read, play games, watch movies, take naps, etc. We loved the camp fire for s'mores and ghost stories. Although we used the indoor fireplace more due to the rain. The kids had a great time on the rope swing down on Pebble Beach, the guys got in a golf match, we climbed Kineo and went blueberry picking! The house is very clean and is more than adequately stocked with towels, sheets, paper goods, etc. The only things we had to bring were clothes and food. The kitchen was fully equipped. Thank you for sharing your home. We hope to come back next year!
