This historic cottage, once used to house visitors who arrived at the steam ship landing nearby, now offers a fantastic spot for a large family get-away. The large house boasts enough space to sleep 14 people while offering the most wonderful outdoor accommodations!
The living room opens up to a large deck that looks out over the pool, gazebo and Linekin Bay. This is a fantastic spot to catch the windjammers festival, watch lobstermen haul traps and spend evenings viewing gorgeous summer sunsets. On hot days you can cool off in the pool while still taking in the view. The gazebo is a great spot for watching the boats go by while enjoying an outdoor picnic. The house has a private deep water dock as well as a mooring , if you would like to bring a boat please contact OTWIM first.

This is our fourth rental through OTWIM. We think that is perhaps the strongest recommendation. Would we have come back for more punishment so often if we were not totally satisfied.
This is a charming house dating back to 1888. It was big enough to accommodate our family of nine and in addition would have been able to give a berth to our grandson and his girlfriend if they had been able to come. The pool is nice and the dining room table seated our entire group. We had a good time.

The agency was great.
Ledgelawn's appeal is the location, deep water dock, and pool - coupled with its ability to get both of our families together in one house (sleeps 14) we had 10, and almost all the kids got there own room. Although on the water at Maine doesn't rent boats to this area (salt water near inlet) we did have a boat for the week- and that was by far the highlight of the trip. Being able to walk out on the dock and get on the boat, Tavel to Booth bay, down the River, and around all the islands. The sunset is priceless at this property.

This is our second time renting with On The Water in Maine. It is seamless, hassle-free and we've never been disappointed in any way.
We love the house! The deck overlooking the water is wonderful and flexible if it rains. The pool is great and we used it every day. It is a very comfortable house and we will recommend it to our friends.

Very responsive; no complaints.
House had plenty of room for the family. Nice grounds and beautiful view. Grandchildren had fun catching fish on dock.
Close to restaurants, shopping, entertainment, yet secluded and private. Bathrooms and kitchen could stand some upgrades.

On the Water In Maine was excellent. They communicated very clearly everything we needed to do, also tried to anticipate & answer all our questions before our trip. During our vacation their staff was available to answer questions & take care of problems that arose. We could not have asked for better service.
Ledgelawn was perfect for our family reunion. Plenty of space to accommodate our big group. The view from the fabulous porch is magnificent including beautiful sunsets. We also loved fishing off the dock, kayaking in the inlet, swimming in the pool and the peace & tranquility of the whole setting.

Working with On the Water in Maine was fast and easy. Most everything was automated and I never needed to follow-up on anything. On the Water in Maine provided reminders when things were due and detailed instructions for everything I needed including directions to the property. On the Water in Maine was recommended to me by a relative and I have already recommended them to others and will continue to do so.
LedgeLawn greatly exceeded our expectations. It is much larger than expected. Our group consisted of 4 families and each had their own bathroom. Each day began with coffee on the large outside deck where we talked for hours. Each evening ended the with drinks and appetizers. The kids spent hours in the pool while the adult men spent time fishing off the dock. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals including a 27 lobster dinner late in the week. I can't say enough positive things about this property.

We were a late booking as a result of another agent letting us down at the last moment. From our first call to your office we were impressed! The online booking was fantastic and Emily could not have been more helpful. Arriving to shopping and all the lights on to welcome our late arrival was wonderful. Thank you for a wonderful holiday, we can't wait to come back again and will certainly book with On the Water in Maine!
We loved your house. It has such an incredible feel about it! It has clearly seen many happy days and family times over the years.

*Pool Disclosure - This pool, like other swimming pools in this part of Maine, is serviced by the only vendor in the area. That vendor isn't available on a day, or sometimes even a weeks' notice to attend to issues if they come up, such as mechanical problems with the pool filter, pool heater, etc. The Property Owner will make every best effort to ensure that the pool is always in good operation using the vendor - however they do not guarantee that the pool will always be in top operating condition and will not issue any rental refunds if it is not. In other words, if your sole reason for renting this property is for the swimming pool - we would encourage you to consider other rental properties. The Property Owners consider the swimming pool to be a 'bonus' amenity that is nice to have - but not required or needed to rent their home.
