A return visit to a three-generation family week on Lake Megunticook was as magical as we remembered and more! We love the casual environment, the overall comfort of the house and the access to the lake. Six perfect days of weather enabled us to enjoy the lake, the Maine coast and loads of lobster and crab. Hope to be back soon!

Working with On the Water in Maine was an excellent experience in every way. From the website to the professional assistance to clear instructions throughout our visit, they made planning and enjoying this vacation a pleasure! Congratulations to your whole team.
Three generations of our family visited Lake Megunticook to celebrate several milestone birthdays. We had a fabulous week enjoying the home we rented, the flora and fauna of the lake and all the water activities, hiking nearby, the surrounding towns for excellent food, shopping, antiquing, crafts and fun experiences together. The house was perfect for us with ample space, perfect amenities and a warm, cozy environment for us to make lasting memories. We look forward to returning to Maine again!

Absolutely the best view of the lake. Killer sunsets, covered and shaded outdoor seating, lawn big enough for croquet or dawn yoga for the whole family and friends!
