Built in 2013, this waterfront home features 200 feet of pebbly waterfront shore on a large sandy cove. The beach is accessible by a private stairwell. The beach from the front of the property extends to and around Stover's Point beach, which is ideal for long walks. Kayaks, canoes can be launched from the property at high tide and the cove is well protected.
From the expansive private deck or screened porch enjoy the birds, an occasional seal, and other forms of coastal wildlife. Sailboats and lobster boats often go by. On Saturdays in August watch for the sailboat races in the harbor. The cottage faces Harpswell Sound with spectacular sunrises and offers a nice view of the Cribstone Bridge located between Orr’s & Bailey’s Islands. Celebrate the 4th of July from the perfect location where you can view the fireworks across the harbor from the deck! The large yards in the front and back are well-groomed and conducive to family games. The entire yard facing the ocean is fenced in to keep little ones in your party close by.

We returned for third year at The Beachcomber, perfect for our three week vacation. Sunrise and sunset over the water are always spectacular. We love Harpswell location.

Working with OTWIM was easy from start to finish. Directions were clear and the turnovers were seamless.
We loved the decor, the level of cleanliness and most of all the views. The fenced in yard was also wonderful with a small child!

On the Water in Maine staff are on top of every detail, from initial inquiry to check out. They are professional, friendly, and responsive; we appreciated the timely information to help us prepare.
Beachcomber House was exactly as described, just better! It was perfectly cleaned, with all expected amenities, and comfortable for our family of 6 adults and one toddler. The setting is lovely, with quiet bay sunrises and and cool breezes in the early evening. We loved every moment!

Overall, our experience with OTWM was great. Things went smoothly with reservations and the staff was very helpful and attentive.
We had a great time at the property and loved the setting! The house was just big enough for our family and its proximity to the Stover's point beach was great for daily outings!

We were very pleased with the staff at On the Water in Maine. Everyone was very responsive regarding everything from initial questions regarding the house before we decided to rent it, to help with details on bedrooms, baby furniture rental, directions to the house, check in, check out, etc. They even installed shades in a few rooms before we arrived since we were concerned about the sunrise awakening us early. It was a great experience.
We had a wonderful stay at the Beachcomber. It is very nicely situated in Harpswell on the water, private (not on the main road) but close to several restaurants, shops, Brunswick, and other coastal attractions. The house is just as nice as it appears in photos on the website; very nicely decorated and maintained, very clean and well designed. The construction, fixtures, and furnishings are really solid and high quality. We loved the screened porch, 2 balconies overlooking the water, large fenced yard, and multiple living areas which were great for 3 generations of our family. Everyone had their own space, and plenty of space to come together as well. We feel really lucky to have found the Beachcomber; it was perfect for our family vacation. Bonus: there's a porcupine that visited the yard a few times. We had a great time watching him/ her eat the flowers on the clover.

Working with your agency was great. This is the second summer we have rented through you and both times the houses exceeded expectations. I have a good level of trust in finding a house and booking through you.
The house, yard and beach exceeded our expectations. The house was extremely well appointed -- great comfortable furniture and everything was very clean!!! We loved sitting on the deck and collecting sea glass on the beach. We enjoyed the screened in room in the evenings after dinner. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable. It was a beautiful house to relax and plenty of room for everyone.

Justin at On the Water in Maine was incredibly thorough and responsive to all questions - via email and phone. I couldn't have asked for a better service experience.
Oh my lord, this property had too many "favorite features" to count, but here are a few: the location - holy moley. The yard out back was stunning, allowing for fabulous lawn games; the walk down to the water was scenic (a very short walk --mere steps-- but a lovely one!), and the beach beautiful. The house is gorgeous and was super clean. (The workmanship in the house is incredible - baseboards, paint, etc.) The beds were unbelievably comfortable - one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in (I wasn't the only one to say this). The towels were luxurious. The washer and dryer worked amazingly well. As my husband said - "you know this property is new because there are [electrical] outlets everywhere you could possibly want one." There was a coffee machine, a keurig, great pans, etc. Everything about this home was fabulous (ok - tiny, minor inconvenience was the internet was spotty - worked most of the time, but came in and out sometimes.) Seriously amazing in general, though.

On The Water is the best rental agency with which I have ever worked. Last spring I had rented a different house and was waiting for summer to come so that we could come up and enjoy it. OTW called, completely on their own initiative, to say they had remembered that in one of our conversations we mentioned three small children. The house we had rented sits on top of a cliff with fairly steep stairs down to a rocky beach.(Seacliffe). OTW had their staff doublecheck and determined that this property wouldn't be good for small children. A check of their other available properties revealed Beachcomber.
My family (3 couples and 3 children) has thoroughly enjoyed this vacation. We had rented two kayaks and kept them on the beach all week. A beautiful sandy beach with tidal pools is a five-minute kayak ride away. The house is perched on a little hill so we have spectacular views of Casco Bay from every room. The house itself was clean with new, comfortable furniture. The kitchen was well-equipped and sheets and towels were ready in every room. The house is big enough that when someone needed some privacy it was readily available. My only complaint is that there is not a table big enough to seat all of us for dinner. My favorite time of the day was watching the sun rise over the water every morning directly in front of us.

Our experience with OTWIM was a pleasure. From start to finish, everyone we dealt with was pleasant, and very helpful. I will definitely recommend OTWIM to anyone wanting to vacation in Maine. Your organization runs like a well oiled machine and has thought of everything. What a pleasure.
We absolutely loved the house. The setting is beautiful, peaceful and so nicely decorated. It is a very relaxing place to spend a week with family. Thank you for making our family vacation special. The house had everything you could need while on a vacation, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Love, Love, Love, the house.
