This house was by far our favorite rental since we have been coming to the mid-coast. Wonderful large, open spaces and ever-present views of the bay. Great privacy not only from Rte.1 but also the houses on either side. We enjoyed the proximity to Camden without the extra driving we had from Rackliff Island. And the bald eagle that flew low over the deck late every afternoon was a real treat.
The water in the house is extremely "soft" from the Culligan treatment making it very slippery in the bathroom. Anti-slip mats would be welcome for the floor and tub.

On the Water in Maine is always friendly, helpful, and very responsive to any issues or requests we have had. We've worked with them for four years now and have been very pleased with how we have been treated!
We love Cockcroft! The view is spectacular, and the peace and quiet the property provides is a welcome change from city life. The home is well equipped, although without air conditioning it can get stuffy when the weather turns warm. All in all, we love it!

We love coming back to Rockcroft and have continued to do so for three years now. We were delighted to see the owners had made some improvements to the property on our May visit this year. The new floor in the bedroom looked very nice and a lot of the casement windows that were having issues as of our last stay had been fixed. It also appears that they got a new door from the bedroom to the deck. The flowers they had out this time around the property looked very nice and inviting. It looks like they may have power washed the house as well.

This is our second time working with ON THE WATER IN MAINE and all we can say is VERY PROFESSIONAL. Their website is very user friendly and their emails very informative. Every staff member we spoke to was very friendly and helpful.
SO ROMANTIC!!! The beautiful stone fireplace, the hot tub, the king size bed and the amazing views from it, the window seat, the claw foot tub and the privacy of the property all were incredibly romantic. We loved that the deck was shaded in the afternoon by the property trees. We often laid on the comfortable lounging deck chairs and watched the full moon rise. There are 3 televisions on the property and we did not turn one on even once. The views commanded our attention. AMAZING!!!

It always starts with the helpful, knowledgeable, friendly people. The reservation process, billing procedure, updates before arriving, and on-site instructions and local information are all thoughtfully presented.
This was our third time to stay at Rockcroft. The home is equipped with every thing we need, and very well maintained. It's hard to say what features are our favorite--however, the view, location, and living accomodations are at the top of the list. Hard to ask for more.

Every encounter over the many months from rental to arrival with On the Water in Maine was pleasant. The response time was almost automatic and helpful. Justin, the owner, even came out Sunday am after we got there with a homemade remedy to a problem! Professional, friendly and helpful!
From the moment you pull in the drive and see the Bay through the windows you feel the stress of the world leave your body. This home is wonderful. From the views from the living area, the infinity hot tub, the heated bathroom floors and the magical feel of the sitting window in the master, one may never want to leave. The home is well appointed in every way. The beds are wonderful! listening to the waves every night when we went to sleep and waking up to the sunrise every morning right outside the window....ahhhhhhhh. We LOVED this home!

All the phone and email contacts were handled very efficiently. The check in and check out procedures were very clear and easy to understand.
Spectacular view! Love the large porch and large dining tables, both inside and out.
Master bedroom was very comfortable although the closet arrangement was odd.
We had guests with us and they had no closet at all in the Guest room.
Master bathroom and shower were very nice - great supply of hot water. Very small gust bath but stall shower worked well.
Kitchen had the basics but could use more pans. The disposal did not work well and the sink did not drain properly.
BUT the location and ocean view made up for those deficiencies . Didn't watch much TV but they worked well - really appreciated the easy to use remotes.

Location, location, location! Our stay could not have been better. The view of the water was outstanding and the seclusion in the woods was wonderful! The sunrises were spectacular and it was fun to watch the dolphin, seal and lobster boats from the deck. The amenities truly met our expectations. Linens were fresh, good quality, the bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked! The owners did a great job putting the extra touches on their home that they so graciously share with others! Thanks for helping us celebrate our retirement and 46th wedding anniversary!

Comment from Guest - Your company was easy to work with.
Comment from On the Water in Maine - This Guest gave our company a 2.5 star rating after her stay this past September. In her comments, she felt that we imposed too many rules and restrictions at the property. While all the over 8 weeks of rentals for 2015 are by repeat guests that stayed at the property in 2014, and none of them shared those feelings with us, and all still are coming back, we are reviewing the presentation of the property information to ensure that all our Guests feel welcome in the property and that too many requests are not made of them. Additionally, the Guest didn't think the property was cleaned to the standards that she should have seen. While the Guest never informed us when she was in residence that any cleaning issues existed, we won't disregard her comments and will ensure that we work harder to make the property clean and up to the standards that all our guests expect from us. Note the 2 Surveys by Guests in October, AFTER this Guest's stay below that are both 5-Star.
Comment from Guest - We stayed at Rockcroft cabin late September. The location of the cabin was great for the sight seeing and tourist activities.
Comment from On the Water in Maine - We believe the 3-star rating on this property from the Guest had a lot to do with her comments that we address above, still, she thought some of the furniture was old and "shabby" and that some stains on the rugs needed to be addressed. We are reviewing and addressing all her concerns to ensure that this 5-star property continues to get 5-star scoring. Note the 2 Surveys by Guests in October, AFTER this Guest's stay below that are both 5-Star.
