We have used On the Water in Maine twice now and they are the only place I will look when planning future Maine vacations. They make every aspect of renting a cottage go smoothly.
We had a wonderful time at the 44 Degrees North Cottage. The location is central to so many things yet peaceful and quiet. The cottage was very comfortable and beautiful. The wildflower gardens and antique furnishings were my favorite.

The agency was easy, thorough and very clear on expectations and advertised the property well - we got exactly what we expected with the advertised property. While staying at the cottage, Justin from On the Water in Maine helped with hike ideas and a simple key issue.
We loved the 40 Degrees Cottage on Spruce Head. Beautifully appointed, especially the book shelf and kitchen. We used the fireplace, received vegetables from the owner's garden and kayaked on the water.
