On the Water in Maine is tremendously well organized and a joy to work with. All details are covered full, so there is no need ever to call the office to find out what to do.
My favorite feature is sitting on the porch looking at all the boat traffic and the glorious view. During our stay, we had a full moon leaving a reflective trail over the water - just spectacular! On an administrative level, as a renter and as a cook, I really appreciate the extraordinarily well equipped kitchen, which has just about any pan or implement one could wish for.

All staff were very helpful. Lots of helpful information before we arrived.
The property was beyond our expectations. I have rented a lot of vacation homes and this was by far the most charming. The decor was very warm and cozy. I love how the how the owner retained the old features but had a modern kitchen and bath. The views were spectacular. We loved the front porch and the beautiful views from the dining room.

It was extremely easy to work with Justin, et al. Your written communications were timely and clear.
We are hardly typical, having once owned the property, but we had an absolutely wonderful time! All the changes the Owner has made are definitely for the better. We had as guests 3 old college friends who had been there 52 years ago, just before we graduated, and they too truly enjoyed seeing it again. Favorite features: the new stairs and the comfy armchairs - not to mention the wonderful shower!

On the Water in Maine manages all the details extremely well; the house was neat, clean, fully stocked. When we phoned on a couple of small issues, OTWIM was fully and immediately responsive in every way.
This was our second stay in the Jones Cottage, and we enjoyed it just as much this time. The view across the harbor is unparalleled. We love having the float, making it easy to store and launch our kayaks whenever we wish without carting them to distant launch areas. The house is neat, clean, well-furnished, roomy, and comfortable, with an excellent kitchen and clean, large bathrooms. The neighborhood is quiet, neighbors are friendly. A splendid vacation spot.

On the Water in Maine was excellent to deal with. They were efficient, organized and friendly. Communication during the entire rental, from first contact to check-out was fantastic!
The cottage was bright and airy with lots of ocean breezes. The wide front porch was wonderful! It had a gate and was a great place for our toddler grandchildren to play while we enjoyed watching the activity in the harbor. We appreciated that we could walk down the steps to the dock, especially when a couple of us rented a kayak for the day and tied it up there. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

Everyone at the agency was very friendly and seemed dedicated to being sure the renter was happy. Justin in particular was very thorough and provided good assistance and detail.
The Jones Cottage is darling! The decor is lovely--simple, soothing colors that complement and enhance the spectacular views. The porch, with its glider bench and numerous rocking chairs, was a delightful place to enjoy the breeze and to watch the boats. The family room was spacious with lots of seating variety and cozy blankets to snuggle under during the cool evenings. The walk down to the dock was great exercise and it was fantastic to be able to go down and enjoy the cool breeze right off the water.

Beautiful cottage. Wish I could pick it up and bring it to our place in the Fingers Lakes (NY). Just love the interior and exterior of your home. My wife and the other wives kept commenting on how beautiful the place was decorated. The view from the porch will be in our minds for a life time. Enjoyed seeing the lobster fisherman, sailing boats and the small cruise ships going through the Boothbay Harbor. The Jones Cottage is the cutest place. Definitely has the feel of what you would think of as a cottage. Very comfortable for 6 people. Great shower!
