OWM is a very detailed rental agency. If I had a house there to rent I would use you.
Really enjoyed our visit. In spite of no a/c house was quite comfortable (with open windows).
Well stocked kitchen and very clean upon arrival. Beautiful views of the water and the boats.
Owls head is a perfect location for north, south, and maybe west explorations of Maine.

The company was easy to work with and there were no surprises.
We had a wonderful week at the Seafarer. We especially enjoyed the well-equipped kitchen and huge windows overlooking the bay.

A phone call away answered our concern about the TV and just couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasant and memorable.
Wonderful experience! Beyond our expect ions! Fully equipped kitchen. Attention given to details,such as swivel chairs that could face the ocean or to turn to converse with family and friends in the living room. Housekeeping staff left everything spotless for us to enjoy our 2 week stay. I highly recommend the Seafarer Cottage.

I always spoke to friendly people on the phone at On the Water in Maine and was grateful for the quick help I received in booking the cottage. Communication was timely and we never had issues getting in touch.
We loved staying at the Seafarer Cottage! The back deck looking over the water was a favorite spot. Our family fit perfectly, with the kids in the twin beds, parents in the master, and grandparents in the guest cottage. We were all impressed with the amenities found at the cottage - the kitchen had everything you could want! I also appreciated a whole trunk full of kids' toys to keep my 5- and 2-year old entertained. It was a truly lovely house in a wonderful spot and we can't wait to come back!

We had a great experience with On the Water in Maine. This is our third time working with them. Justin is easy to work with and was very friendly. We will book through them again!
The Seafarer Cottage was delightful! It was very private and very quiet so we felt as if we were the only ones in the area. We had a beautiful view from every room of the harbor and could see the Rockland light house; and the ferry to Northport/Vinalhaven making its trips to North Haven/Vinalhaven. The kitchen had every thing one could think of the cook and/or bake, mostly Wolfgang Puck kitchenware. It is difficult to climb down to the rocky beach but it is doable during low tide. Loved the cottage overall!

On the Water in Maine provided a high end and well thought threw rental experience. We knew what to expect from day one and felt we could call or email anytime with questions. The guest book with check in and check out procedures had all kinds of useful information, we loved the tips on what to do - a week itinerary from the owners. I would highly recommend them to friends and family.
We loved the ever changing panoramic view from Seafarer's cozy living room and front deck. The kitchen was really well stocked with quality cook ware so it was easy to prepare meals and enjoy the grounding vibe of the country side. The gardens are an inviting way to enter the property. Lots of windows also made for great airflow so the cottage never felt stuffy or hot. It was a little slice of Heaven on Earth.

Very friendly staff.
The views from the home were beautiful no matter what the weather. Daybreak and sunset especially nice.
The house was very well equipped so not much was left to purchase. The grill was really appreciated.
