Fishing details/Whitewater Rafting details: A glance at any map reveals a number of bodies of water ranging in size from Moosehead Lake to ponds of only a few acres. Some waters are easily accessed by car while others require some hiking and carrying. Among the popular species are bass, perch, trout, salmon, and togue. If this is your first time fishing in the Moosehead area, we recommend the use of a guide. Basic fishing outfits can be purchased from several stores in town. Be sure that you have a license and an up-to-date fishing regulation book. . . Then if you are up for something with more action - Experience whitewater rafting!!Each year thousands of paddlers challenge the whitewater of the Kennebec, Penobscot and Dead Rivers. With the Moosehead Lake Region situated between these premier whitewater rivers, the area is a perfect spot for the river enthusiast to stay. Outfitters provide you with everything needed for a fun, safe trip.

Hunting Details/ Scenic Flying Experience: The Moosehead Lake region offers many exciting opportunities for hunters of all ages. Our region teems with wildlife and affords hunters a vast amount of terrain in which to spend a few hours, a day or a week. Some popular species of animals to hunt include partridge, rabbit, deer, bear and moose. Each of these has a specific legal hunting season and set of regulations, which can be found at the website for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. If this is your first time to the Moosehead area, we recommend the use of a guide. . . .Since much of the Moosehead Lake shoreline and many sporting camps are not accessible by road, seaplanes get quickly where motor vehicles and boats cannot. Two commercial air services offer sightseeing excursions. A half-hour flight around the lower half of the lake is a good way to appreciate the vastness of both lake and wilderness. Currier's Flying Service or Folsom's Flying Service, both will offer you a scenic flying experience!

Snowmobiling details: You have access to The Moosehead Lake Snowmobile Trail from the front yard of the Loon's Nest cabin. This trail climbs up to lofty overlooks, passes through deep forests, stops at outposts like Kokadjo, Northeast Carry, Seboomook, and Pittston Farm, and Greenville, never too many miles from food and fun.

Five local clubs, town employees and many volunteers keep these trails in great condition. Whether you want to take just a morning or afternoon trip or spend all day on the trails, your choices are many. Pack a lunch and stop at any number of locations with beautiful scenery; or plan to ride to one of the surrounding towns and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of the areas restaurants or inns that cater to snowmobilers.

Annual Maine Snowmobile Trail Rides: B-52 Memorial Elephant Mountain Snowmobile Trail Ride and The Ricky Craven Moosehead Lake Region Ice Fishing Snowmobile Trail Ride.

About Lisa Sandberg

My name is Lisa Sandberg and I am a nurse at a small community hospital in the emergency room. Charlie is my husband of 32 years. He is a retired police officer. He also happens to be very good at building things. He built the log cabin in 2001 and in 2007 he built us a new 3500 sq ft home in Connecticut. I am a very lucky lady to be married to such a talented man. Charlie has the gift of gab. No one remains a stranger for long around him.

Lisa Sandberg purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Lisa Sandberg chose Rockwood

Our next door neighbors here in Connecticut introduced us to Maine about 20 years ago. The 1st couple of years we camped with them at Camp Seboomek. But they got tired of hauling all their equipment every trip so they started looking for a small place to buy. They found a cute little place on the Moose River and we continued to stay with them for several more years.

One day Charlie was looking for a boat to buy, and Mark from the marina told him he had a boat for sale and, oh by the way, he also had a piece of land he would throw in. The time was right, the price was right and so before you know it we owned the boat and 2 acres of land. Charlie sold the boat to pay for the foundation! and the rest is history!

Loon's Nest

  • 5 of 5

My friend & I stayed at Loon's Nest in September (a perfect time of year). The house was wonderful with all the amenities you would ever need. I would recommend this home to anyone! It was so convenient having a dock since we brought our boat (which we could launch at the nearby marina). The location was terrific - private, not far from Greenville, restaurants, shopping, etc. We plan on returning to Loon's Nest!

Great House and the Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from a 5 night stay at the Loons Nest and it was simply fantastic. The house is located only about 100 yards from trail 66 and also provides easy access to the lake. The house easily accommodated 5 adults and the open kitchen layout is great for morning and evening meals. It was very comfortable! The driveway is quite large and provided plenty of room to park both a 4 place and 2 place trailer with ease. All the snowmobile trails are located within minutes of the house. It truly is the perfect location for a snowmobile trip.

The owners of the home, Charlie and Lisa have done a great job with supplying guests with everything they need to have an enjoyable stay including the much needed Kuerig coffee maker and the really cool pellet stove which not only puts out lots of heat but gives off a nice ambiance.

I would highly recommend this home!

Awesome as always!!!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about Loon's Nest! It is our little paradise! We love having all of the deer greet us daily. The cabin is comfy and Lisa and Charles are just great! They always keep in touch to make sure we are all set! We look at them more like friends now instead of people whose home we rent!

Do not book this property. The owner will never return your security deposit.

  • 1 of 5

The house is OK, but the owners took our security deposit and never returned it. They claim we did damage to the house beyond the amount of the deposit which is a complete lie. I guess in a slow time they are trying to make money on everything. We rented more than 20 houses over the years, and never had any issues. I would never recommend renting this property.

Owner's Response: This would be the first time since we built our home in 2001 that we have had to withhold a security deposit let alone respond to a negative review. We’ve had hundreds of guests with glowing reviews. We certainly understand accidents happen and things break. That certainly wasn’t the case here. Our cleaning lady wrote us in detail the damage and that she has not seen this in her 17 years cleaning our cabin. We made the trip from Connecticut to see the damage ourselves. The most damage sustained was to our floors, cabinets and rugs in nearly every room in the house including the bathrooms which was a result of what we believe was some sort of painting party. There were additional broken and missing items. If there is any doubt about what kind of owners we are, please read our reviews. We’re very proud of our reputation and the experience we provide our guests. Thank you for reading, Charlie and Lisa
