My family and I had a wonderful time at the Easy Lane Cottage. The inside of the house and exterior were better than we imagined or saw in the pictures. The place was absolutely comfy, and the beds were comfy too. The house was clean and welcoming when we arrived.
My favorite feature was the early morning sunrise and the access to the pond. We brought our inflatable kayaks and after getting everything settled, we went on the pond for a quick kayak. As the weather got colder, the fireplace was a nice add.

As always, this team was professional, detailed, and very responsive. They quickly resolved a minor issue on the first day. Communication leading up to, during, and after our stay was smooth and timely. The property was spotlessly clean. Excellent rental experience.
This house is a dream. The location is wonderful--quiet, very scenic, with easy, thoughtful access to the water (no rickety dock or precarious steps; set up for docktails). Beds are very comfortable, and the layout of the house is perfect for a family with adult/teenage kids or couples. The suite on the lower level allows for maximum privacy in a relatively small house. The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking and serving. All the furniture and lighting are thoughtfully and tastefully done. Beth's and the Pour Farm are within a short drive. Happy days for sure in this house.

I've rented through OTWIM several times and it's always easy. I have called the office on occasion with questions/issues and all was cleared up immediately. Very satisfied.
Very pretty property. The lakefront was very usable. We swam and boated. The best feature was that the yard was fenced in which made it much easier with our dogs. Kitchen was well appointed. Bonus to have multiple bathrooms. WiFi and phone service was good. We are afternoon people so we'd prefer a location with afternoon sun but there was sun on the lawn later in the afternoon when the dock got shady.

Always a very pleasant and positive experience dealing with On the Water in Maine! Exceptional service!
The stay was pleasant. It was incredibly warm in the house and the lower level was very moist which made sleeping uncomfortable. This was in lieu of air and dehumidifier. Our favorite feature was the view! (Comment from OTW 9/27/21: the owners of the cottage have installed air conditioning on all levels for the 2022 season)

We absolutely loved this house. Thoughtfully and tastefully designed, every space offered something unexpected and wonderful. The lake access was perfect, the dock and firepit made for a fun and easy stay. We would return here without hesitation. It's a very comfortable, very charming house. The owners have thought of everything a visitor could possibly want or need.

I had a very positive overall experience. Paige and Megan were of great help. Paige helped me navigate the payment system flawlessly. Megan was right there when I had difficulty opening the door upon our arrival. The team was A+
The stay was excellent. We had a great time. The house was super clean, the amenities were great. We brought things that already provided which is a good. Fishing in Lermond pond was great. The gas fire place warmed up the cool nights and the grill was a huge plus. All in all it was great vacation. The upper bedroom view was exceptional, night and day. One area of concern to pass along to the owners. The front step up into the house is very high and a bit tilted down to the right. Possibly a handle placed next to the door in order to grab a hold stepping up and in. My 78 Y.O. Mother in law had only that concern. Thanks again.

As always, On the Water in Maine was easy to rent from. I appreciated the communication via e-mail and the check-in/out process couldn't be easier.
Easy Lane Cottage is in a great location. Near Camden, Rockland and many beautiful hiking trails. It is peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed going out in the pond on a rented canoe, reading in the hammock, sitting by the fire and having bonfires. The accommodations were perfect for our group of five.
