I loved working with On the Water in Maine. From the moment I started looking for a rental to the very last day, you were so helpful and professional. Thank you for making our experience enjoyable!
We loved the house and it fit our needs! The only thing we really wished it had was a pantry or a cabinet to store our food. Counter space was limited, so storing our food on top of the counter was difficult. Loved having a bathroom in every bedroom!

a satisfactory experience; very detailed follow up. We appreciated the "heads-up" about traffic issues when departing on Saturday upon checkout. We did adjust our departure time and experienced no traffic issues as a result.
The property is lovely; the view of the ocean from the patio was just like the photo on the website.The bedrooms were all clean and comfortable as were all the bathrooms; something we really value having rented a wide variety of Camden-area properties over the years.

It was very easy dealing with On the Water in Maine. They did what they said they would. Their instructions for the property as well as check in and check out were clear, easy to follow and understand.
The home had a beautiful view and beautiful grounds. It was close enough to Camden that we walked into town one day. There were 8 guests in our party and we had plenty of room, as well as plenty of privacy.

On the Water in Maine was very responsive and good to work with.
GUEST COMMENTS: The views and location were great...but we didn't realize this guest house is just feet from the main, occupied house. We felt like we were trespassing at someone's home and an unwelcome guest. A few days into our stay we got a map showing the red zone we were not allowed to go into and the blue zone we were permitted to use. Not very friendly. The whole point of us renting a house with a yard is so our kids could run and play outside. Also the furniture needs to be replaced. The couches were dirty, the beds were worn and lumpy and there was water damage in one room with an odd odor. The washer/dryer was in the basement and difficult to access.
ON THE WATER IN MAINE COMMENTS: The name of this property, as we advertise it, is the "Springbrook Hill Guest House". As the name says, the property is a Guest House on an estate. We ask all our Guests, as part of the rental agreement, to review the satellite image of the property - which these Guests initialed that they had. We believe the satellite map we provide is quite clear that this "Guest House" is indeed on an estate and feel that a map showing the layout of the property is appropriate, since the whole estate isn't being offered for rent. The Guest House has gone through extensive updates over the past 3 years including a new kitchen 2 years ago - and despite that, the rent has not gone up. Still, we welcome this Guest's feedback and have shared it with the Property Owner to see where improvements can be made.

very easy and helpful! Even when we had a problem in the house, you were right out to correct the problem.
My family and I love the Springbrook Hill Guest House! We now love it more now that the kitchen has been updated! Cooking for 10 was so much easier this year! The kids love being able to play on the beautiful grounds and the parents don't have to worry about the street traffic.

Easy access and responsive. Was a definite plus -- and security level in booking -- that this was handled by agency and not just VRBO owner.
As advertised. Quiet, comfortable spot ... very convenient to Camden.

The mountains tumble down to meet the ocean's edge, creating some of the best views and hiking opportunities in the state.
