Even with just a small staff, On the Water meets every expectation of reservations and service a renter could ask.
Vacationland is on one of the nicest ponds in the central coast area, and the house is sweet. We especially enjoyed the deck overlooking the water. While not a necessity, excellent wi-fi was a nice bonus. We hope to return.

Justin was great his knowledge of the property was really helpful with our boat rental, and found the property book really helpful also.
The views from inside and on deck was incredible, the sounds from pond was great. We were able to take kids tubing without worrying about other boaters. Even the neighbors were very friendly it's like stepping back in time.

Working with On the Water in Maine was a great experience. Everyone was extremely nice and they responded to any questions and concerns quickly.
Vacationland was our home away from home for a week! Our favorite part of the property was the view of the lake from the house and the dock/easy access to the lake! This was a our first trip to Maine, our favorite parts about the area were the view from Camden Hills State Park! The best restaurant is Primo in Rockland! While we were here we fished, canoed, hiked, shopped, cooked, and visited local towns.

I appreciated the structure of the rental, with regards to information and clearly outlining the requirements and policy of staying at the property. The "check in" and "check out" process helped in assuring nothing was missed.
During our check in, I spoke with an agent who helped with suggesting good places to eat and some activities in the area, which was a great help.
The property was just what we were looking for on our first trip to Maine. We were somewhat secluded yet close to several very nice towns on the coast. The view, of the lake, from the house was great and offered easy access for launching our kayaks.
We caught a variety of fish; pickerel, large and small mouth bass, and brook trout from Hobbs Pond and considering my fiance' only caught sunfish in the past made it a great experience for her.
