Ben was available and immediate responsive and was willing to answer even the most minor question. On the Water in Maine was super informative before and during our stay.
The property is beautiful and beautifully furnished. It has every amenity you could want, down to the binoculars to take advantage of the two fabulous decks overlooking the harbor. Those decks for morning coffee and tea were our favorite part!

On the Water in Maine were simply excellent in all respects. I was really impressed with all aspects of their service.
Schooner View was wonderful! Well furnished, spacious and very well equipped, with a great view of Camden harbour. The owners had clearly thought hard about their guests. The only thing we couldn't find in the kitchen was the equipment with which to eat lobster (although there is a recipe for cooking lobster in the apartment)!

All of the folks I dealt with at On the Water in Maine were helpful and professional. They were even patient with my endless questions :) We arrived after hours and spoke to Ben. He was very friendly and professional. He even gave us a couple great pointers of places to check out while we were in town.
Schooner View was gorgeous! It is located very close (less than five minute walk) to town. The view was amazing. I expected for the property to be nice based on the photos. But I must say it exceeded my expectations in a big way! The patio was a great place to relax and enjoy an afternoon cocktail and snack. The kitchen was amazing and very well stocked! There were tons of kitchen gadgets, plates, cups, serving dishes, etc.

Ben, the person with whom we had contact, could not have been more helpful.
We loved most things about this property, especially the well-equipped kitchen (although a few more cups/mugs than 6 would have been handy) the comfortable furnishings and the view. The only disappointment was the lack of closet space in the second bedroom. A cupboard or a second set of drawers instead of a work desk would have been much more useful.

Very helpful, even when I had to wake up the property manager late at night.
Great view of the harbor, convenient walking distance to village though nice to be away from the "fray" of town. Nice open feeling in common room.

Ben was very welcoming when we arrived. We also met Meg at Cappy's on our last night who will be coming to work for "On the Water" in customer service. She is a great addition to your team. Very genuine and personable.
We had a delightful stay at the Schooner View property in Camden. The property was extremely well-maintained. It appeared that prior guests, as well as ourselves, honored your request to remove their shoes before going up the stairs.
Location, location, location! View was spectacular. Easy walk to the village. Quiet and peaceful. Super comfortable beds and living room furniture (perfect for a little nap). Well-equipped kitchen. Loved the microwave of all things and the gas stove.

Area - Camden / Rockport
Well-loved by visitors and residents alike, the towns of Camden and Rockport were one until 1890. Even though governed separately today, they are essentially the same town combined with village centers a mile apart. The mountains tumble down to meet the ocean's edge, creating some of the best views and hiking opportunities in the state.
