This cottage is an authentic 1800`s renovated cape, sitting on 40 acres at the very end of Oak Point. The Oak Point Cottage has been in the current owners` family for more than 100 years. In fact, the family`s roots in Harrington date back to the late 1700`s.
The cottage sits in a field of wild flowers that stretches to the bay. The property features fragrant woodlands, sprawling wildflower meadows and a pink granite shoreline. Surrounded on three sides by water, you can see spectacular sunrises over Flat Bay and sunsets over the Mill River. It has it`s own mid-tide boat launch, perfect for floating small sailboats, kayaks, canoes or motor boats.
Oak Point is just 30 minutes from spectacular views and pounding surf at the Schoodic Point Section of Acadia National Park and an hours drive to Bar Harbor and the rest of Acadia National Park.

The agency was very easy to work with and truly only required the initial phone request to rent the property. Emails were sent with all necessary check in information. We would definitely rent thru On the Water in Maine again!
This property provides a beautiful, private location on the water. It's rustic charm is very appealing to those that are looking for a vacation filled with tranquility and nature. We loved all aspects of the property and hope to return!

Beautiful house and furnishings. Perfect for a real laid back vacation. Beautiful grounds. The only down side was we could not figure out the tide schedule for kayaking. We were not able to use the water feature of this property.

It is always easy to make a reservation. This year we had an issue with an incorrect key code but it was handled quickly and efficiently by staff.
The weather was perfect. The additional bathroom was a great addition. The sun room is my favorite room. We brought a screen house with us this year so we could escape the mosquitoes in the evening and stay outside to enjoy the ambiance.

All of the communication was fast, helpful, and very friendly.
We loved the beautiful view; the quintessential historical Maine farm house; and the quite, cool nights.

Oak Point was beautiful! We greatly enjoyed the stay. Our only disappointment was we were unable to rent kayaks / canoes at the property (which we were aware of prior to signing the rental agreement). Unfortunately we were unable to find a rental company in the area - we would have loved to explore the Flat Bay more! But overall it was a great week!

It was easy working with On the Water in Maine. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Bruce was great.
We loved our stay at Oak Point Cottage. We never saw an airplane, however we did see eagles, osprey, ducks, momma doe, brand new fawn, grandmother (gray) doe, fox, seals. We canoed, kayaked, hiked, bicycled and played bocce in the evening. The house is comfortable, beds comfortable. Everything we needed. The location was magnificent exactly what we were looking for. We usually do many activities along the Bold Coast but is was really hard to leave the cottage property. I would recommend this rental to anyone wanting to get away from everything.

I like that we can go through the whole rental process without having to wait for contracts by mail and call back and forth on the phone. Overall it is a very easy process for making reservations.
We had a great time as always :-) The Sun room addition has definitely been an improvement. Now that there were screens we were able to keep the windows open even at night and let the breeze come through. The path that is usually mowed going down to the water and around the property was not mowed out this year (that was a little of a disappointment) but we still walked down to the water anyway.

Bruce was very helpful. He gave me great tips on buying local lobster and boat guide(even if my friend refused to listen to the guide recommendation). He was also considerate and called to see if it was OK if Orkin came before sending them over. His local knowledge definitely enhanced my stay.
I wrote a note in the guest book but I loved my two weeks, and loved the house and your sharing what is clearly your family vacation tradition with outsiders. Thanks again.

I have rented from multiple agencies and many vacation houses both inside and outside the U.S. and no operation has been as organized and responsive as your team at On the Water in Maine. Thank you. The house was in a gorgeous setting! We were off by ourselves - very private. Great place for a quiet family get-away.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home in Harrington. What a wonderful location and a house that feels as though it's full of history (and the new room addition was terrific - spent many hours there enjoying the view).

We loved the quiet and the stars at night. The house was well equipped and comfortable. The town with a surprisingly diverse supermarket and a few eateries was not a far drive. Early on one of the guys told me about the area and suggested some visits and that is how we found Jasper Beach which we loved. (Btw it would be good to remind guests to bring a passport in case they want to visit Montebello).
Thank you for sharing your home with us. We appreciate that you are maintaining this piece of Maine and are willing to share it - especially that we could bring the entire family (ie the dog). We love how you are fixing up the house - not overdoing it but making it comfortable.

The house and furnishings are charming. Would have loved to have used the cook stove. The new addition was fabulous. We spent most of our time in there. A fire pit out doors would be nice, but we understand the fire hazard. We had a wonderful week. The only negative [for us] was one bathroom and 8 of us AND that you have to go thru the bedrooms to get to the bathroom.
