The Fords (who own On the Water in Maine) are a great family to work with, very caring and helpful whether you need a fishing guide or a beauty salon they know the best I the area.
You can't beat sitting on a deck overlooking beautiful Penobscot Bay. And Camden offers so much to do , shopping, hiking, good restaurants, and not too far for day trips to Acadia, Bar Harbor to the north and Portland to the south.

We don't consider "On the Water in Maine" just an "agency". They are a very caring family and do their utmost to see that your stay is perfect. They cover all the bases and are there 24/7 for any needs you may have.
We've stayed in the same home for six years now and it consider it our second home, not just a rental. Since we live in Florida we enjoy every single day there, rain fog or sun and being centrally located in Camden we can take advantage of the so many wonderful opportunities to enjoy either hiking, shopping, boating, swimming, visiting the many parks and lighthouses, or simply relaxing on the deck at home and of course eating lobster! How we found this home is a funny story. Six (or seven) years ago we wanted to get away from Florida summer heat. We wanted a house on the water and first searched in VRBO and found a home in Booth Bay but when we had difficulty communicating with the owner, my husband felt it would be better to deal with an agency whose sole job it was to take care of renting properties and being there for the renters, that was and is very important. So we searched again for a house, on the water, in Maine, and your agency's name popped up! We found the perfect home, the perfect family, caring "agency" to deal with, and have been coming back ever since!

I have enjoyed working with On the Water in Maine and used them/you 3 different years. One year I was a week or two late in getting my request in and Weeks End was totally booked. I tried again this year as soon as I got notified that bookings could be requested but wasn't able to get the 3 weeks I requested. I looked for similar rentals and found Camden Casa which worked out so well as our daughter and family could stay there while my husband and I stayed at Weeks End. Then I transferred to Camden Casa for another week and loved it as well. We will most likely try to rent it again next year as it is better suited for our family and grandchildren as it has another bedroom. The 3rd bed room at Weeks End doesn't work as a bedroom due to early morning light.
Ben was very helpful in fixing a few problems at Weeks End, then the basement door latch at Camden Casa.
The location is our favorite aspect; the privacy, the wooded forests, moss covered rocks and of course the gorgeous views and the ability to walk down to the shore.
The house is roomy and nicely furnished.

Total class. Ben at On the Water in Maine is awesome when you check in, helpful. Our second rental with you and everything is easy, no surprises, no problems. We wouldn't think of trying any other agency if we are looking in Maine.
Beautiful house, very roomy, great private location, listen to the sounds of the sea in every room, watch the sunrise from you bed, see water birds swim by, a seal, see an eagle fly, and lobster fishermen checking on their pots. All this yet close to town and a stones throw away from Mt. Battie in a state park where you can hike to the top or drive there and see fantastic views.

It is a very we'll run family business, very dependable, accommodating, and always there when you need them . If I had a home to rent I would want them to handle it.
This is the first house we rented and have been going back for five years! Love Weeks End!
