This is a traditional lakeside A-frame camp that has been expanded and renovated into a well appointed full-sized home. Greeting you upon entry into Lakeside Lilys is a large open combination of living room, dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is well appointed with modern appliances, granite counters and a copper topped bar area with stools for socializing. The living room area has a TV with DVD and basic cable as well as comfortable sofa, chairs and even a piano! A sliding glass door goes outside to a screened porch area and a large deck overlooking the large yard and great water views. A half bath finishes out the level.
Outside, at the waters edge, there is a small pier style dock to fish from and a swim float 100 yards out in the water that is deep enough for diving. The area near the dock has plant life and is shallow so you can use the included pedal boat (or rent a kayak, canoe or small fishing boat) to get out to the float where it is deeper and plant free and to explore the pond. Enjoy quiet evenings at the waterside outdoor fire pit roasting marshmallows and telling stories.
This property is great for the 8 person group. Located near the coast in beautiful Lincolnville, Maine. Coleman Pond is a good sized body of water with good swimming and fishing. It takes about 15 minutes to be in scenic downtown Camden or 20 minutes to be in the equally beautiful Belfast.
BOATS INCLUDED? None, however if you are looking to rent kayaks, Maine Sport or Ducktrap Kayaks offer those and can deliver them to the Property.

The staff at On the Water in Maine were all kind and easy to deal with, and they did everything to ensure we had a perfect stay! Definitely one of the nicest rental agencies we've encountered!
The house was delightful. A perfect, storybook lake cottage, set right on Coleman Pond. The owners have decorated with charming furnishings and little "touches" such as stenciled designs and adorable knickknacks that give the place a truly homey feel. There was ample room for the eight of us to spread out and enjoy the main family room, which has a large sofa set and TV, and our sons loved the antique piano! We enjoyed the wonderful, updated kitchen; the ample seating for meals, and the spacious layout, which provided wonderful views of the water and delightful breezes. The beds were all comfortable, and there were plenty of fans, including overhead ceiling fans, to keep us cool. The grounds are lovely and included a partially-screened deck and a large, private yard directly fronting the pond. Our boys loved using the paddleboat and swim float, and we rented kayaks to explore further. There is also a firepit, and we enjoyed building bonfires at night. The housekeeping was meticulous - we arrived to a spotless home, which was a delight. We would definitely return to Lakeside Lily's on our next visit to Maine!

Our family had a fabulous time at Lakeside Lily's! The view was exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed our coffee each morning on the screened porch. Easy access to the water made our daily kayaking adventures most enjoyable! Accommodations were comfortable and the home was well equipped. A very warm and welcoming cottage like feel. This was the perfect location to spend lots of quality family time. We loved our stay!

From start to finish, our experience with On the Water with Maine was marked by attention to detail, courtesy and prompt follow-through. Thank you for your responses to our requests. Ben was most amenable in providing the additional boat which we rented and in walking us through the property's features. His knowledge of the home we rented was amazingly in depth. We will look forward to renting with you all again.
We thoroughly enjoyed the amenities found within and from the property at Lakeside Lilys. The home is very well furnished with everything that one (or 8 in our case) would need. Our 4 grandchildren were ecstatic with the access to the pedalboat, fishing, and swimming in Coleman Pond. The three youngest also enjoyed the swings and all of us had a great time creating s'mores at the firepit. Thanks so much for offering your home for rent!

All of the staff at On the Water in Maine were always very professional and helpful in their communications. We were sent an email before our arrival with great suggestions of places to check out and visit during our stay. I was also impressed that they sent us an email prior to our departure warning us about potential traffic issues on the day of our departure. We would definitely rent from them again!
Our family had such a wonderful week staying at Lakeside Lillys! The screened in porch was the perfect place to eat our breakfast while taking in the lake views, and listening to the loons. We ate dinner every night out on the deck, and the firepit was perfect for roasting s'mores. The kids loved swimming off the floating dock, and Coleman Pond was the perfect size for kayaking. There was plenty of room for all 6 of us to spread out, and the kids loved having their own rooms down in the lower level. The house is located in such a convenient location to explore Lincolnville Beach, Camden and Belfast, all short drives away.

On the Water in Maine was awesome. I had changes in who was coming on vacation and they were very attentive and understanding with all the changes.
We enjoyed the playground perfect for our 3 year old. The pond was also amazing and we loved how close it was to the beach and towns. Also the house had everything available from paper plates to trash bags.

Everything was great! Easy to work with,friendly,honest.
Loved the kitchen/dining area the most, it was where we all 6 congregated. The view was great! Had hoped to spend some time out on the deck and waterfront, enjoying s'mores, but never got home early enough, or it was raining.
Loved the decor ... lots of interesting wall hangings, etc.!

Our family was referred to On The Water in Maine by two local business owners. We have rented 3 properties over the past two years with On the Water in Maine and have not been disappointed. The staff is very efficient, courteous and attentive. We have vacationed in Maine for 15 years and have found renting a home the best value for our lifestyle.
Lakeside Lilly's was located on a quiet pond on a quiet dead end road, this is exactly what we were looking for. The house was spacious and had been updated, yet retained its "campy" feel. The property was very clean and comfortable.

The house was beautiful and well maintained. Having access to the water with the peddle boat and swimming docks was a plus! I just wish it was a little closer to town. Otherwise we loved it! Thank you!
