A crib and highchair are also available.
We do have a VCR, 2DVDs, 2 TVs and a complete Stereo system, 100 Movies or so and a computer with Wireless Broadband DSL and printer.
The Great room has a full modern kitchen with newer appliances, glasses, dishes, pots, spices, condiments and a dining table with room for 10 using the leaves in the closet. There are also 2 couchs, 2 easy chairs, lots of lighting (if the 3 skylights and wall of glass overlooking the lake aren't enough). We have forced air heat and a woodstove with a solar powered Heat Pump to supply additional heat and central AC in the summer.
Down in the walkout freshly renovated Rec room with windows is the other new full bath, Ping Pong table, Pool Table, games, toys, outdoor sporting and fishing equipment, washer, dryer, another Refrig,clothesline etc. In the garage are kids riding toys, adult & kids bikes, and other toys and sports equipment.
There is a full length deck out any of the 3 sliding glass doors facing the lake and overlooking the 1 &1/2 acres of blueberry, strawberry,raspberry and blackberry bushes. You can hardly see another house from anywhere in the home when the leaves are out and we are situated on a private dead end lane with only 3 houses along its 1/2 mile length.
At the level private waterfront, down a 300 yd path from the house with its gradual entry into the very clear water with sandy bottom, there are very interesting rock formations from the long closed granite quarry nearby. We have a big alum canoe, 3 kayaks, Paddleboat, inflatables, with all the lifejackets,paddles, fishing gear, chairs, tables, BBQ, firepit at what used to be the Stonecutters Cottage, firewood etc etc. There is a large permanent dock and a swim platform set out about 50 feet into the lake for unshaded suntanning.
Rockwood pond is about 100 acres with seasonal houses only on half it's circumference. The other half is conservation land with a 'Rails To Trails' pathway for hiking, biking using our bikes in the garage. We do have a 6 person hot tub out back under the stars!
In the Winter time we have 10 pairs of XC skis, boots & poles, ice skates, snowshoes, sleds, toboggans, wood for the woodstove and firepit. The marked trails are great for a days glide thru the woods.
Really all you need to bring is your food, clothes and sheets and towels. We really do pride ourselves on trying to have everything else so that you can have an enjoyable vacation! Your pets are certainly welcome to join you on vacation,just don't leave any 'surprises' We do have a dog dish and lots of old tennis balls!
It's a great place to spend a quiet, relaxing vacation with a whole lot to do right on the property. The hot tub will be bubbling! The boats will still be out. We hope that you'll visit!
Rockwood Pond is a very quiet clear lake and during the week there is hardly anyone around since 21 of the 25 houses on the lake are summer seasonal homes only.
Check our availability calendar which we keep very accurate.
In the Summertime we only rent from Sat 3pm until Sat 11am for $3000 per week.
We don't have a cleaning charge and while we do clean thoroughly between guests, all we ask is that you leave the house pretty much like you found it. We will send instructions on where to get keys,directions etc when we receive full payment.
Please don't hesitate to call with any questions.
We hope you'll visit!
