Very nice looking cabin. Beautiful, quality construction and woodwork. All the amenities you need, a well stocked kitchen. The description was very clear on what the property offers and that includes the fact that there is no AC. It would be nice to have a unit or two upstairs though - it gets hot and muggy even in Maine :-)
Just a great cabin with great views and lake access. I would go again.

Our stay was great and everyone at On the Water was very helpful and responded quickly to our questions.
Duck Cove Cottage was a wonderful property because it had all the amenities for a fun and relaxing vacation with a large group. It is a large space with multiple entertainment/tv rooms, a large fully stocked kitchen, a basement with pingpong/pool, firepit, and a great dock and swimming float that multiple boats can be docked to. Its a quiet serene location with distant but friendly neighbors. The fishing was fantastic. The 15-20 min distance to Camden and Rockland made it feel secluded but also extremely easy to explore the surrounding towns on a daily basis.

The folks at OTWIM are always very helpful and dedicated to making sure out stay is great. It's well worth going through the agency as opposed to direct owners as all the facilities are ready when you walk in the door and leave. They are very contentious about your stay
We love the house. Fairly new construction and just a Very nice country feel. Grounds are wooded and good for little kids 'exploring'. Looks like a new dock was put in since we stayed at this house 2yrs ago. Would definitely rent here again.

Ben was amazingly punctual in his responses to our questions. You should give him a raise!
We all loved the location of Duck Cove Cottage, from the drive through the mountain road to get there, to the spot on the lake and the proximity to Camden harbor.

The overall experience was excellent. Ben at On the Water in Maine was great to work with. We will definitely be looking to rent from On the Water in Maine again. The most obvious favorite feature of the property for us was the access to the beautiful lake! We really enjoyed the dock and especially the swim dock. We really liked the outdoor seating options on the wrap around deck. The home was beautiful and in excellent shape. The bathrooms were modern and clean. The property provided all the comforts required for a relaxing stay on a beautiful lake!
Thank you Zukermans for the use of your beautiful home on the lake. You a very fortunate to have such a lovely property. We hope to rent from you again next year! Being from the North Shore of MA, we liked your choice of Yankees vs Red Socks on the walls of the kids bedroom upstairs!

The lake was beautiful; we enjoyed the loons every day. The house was perfect for us and well appointed. We especially enjoyed the porch when it rained. This is a beautiful and well-built house. Thanks for the game table downstairs and the extra blankets in the closets. We would love to stay again.

Anyone we have talked to has ALWAYS been very professional, accomodating, and helpful. I am returning to Nemo Nisi Mors in September with a friend (we rented last September). Have had the pleasure of recommending "On The Water In Maine" to several families, directing them to your website. Our favorite feature of the Duck Cove property is the wrap-around porch with the overhang making it an ideal place in both sun and rain. The dining table on the porch makes dining so much more enjoyable. It is our second time renting Duck Cove Cottage -- we wouldn't change a thing!
