Working with On the Water in Maine was very easy. We really liked that, because we were first time renters, they called us and made certain the house we requested was the right fit...it was! The process, when we would be charged, when we would receive directions to the house, etc, was fully explained up front and happened exactly as stated. Directions to the house were detailed and accurate. We were glad they pointed out where the nearest grocery store was so we could stop on our way in and be all set before we even checked in!
Glass House was absolutely perfect for our week's stay in Maine. When I returned to work, I was asked what the best part of our trip was. Without hesitation I replied "the house!".
The location is about halfway between Kennebunkport and Acadia, which made if great for exploring the many small coastal towns as well as hiking in the national park. We took the advice to buy groceries on our way in and that worked out great as it is a bit of a drive to the nearest store.
The house was very clean upon arrival and has plenty of amenities - kitchen utensils, dishes, bath towels, blankets, games, etc. We wanted for nothing during our stay. We found the beds very comfortable, and the ability to do laundry during our visit a nice plus.
My husband is an architect and appreciated the design details of the house. The windows, designed to capture the ocean breeze while cross ventilating, provided the perfect climate while spending time inside the house. The view is, in a word, spectacular! The two chairs perched under the trees were the ideal spot for experiencing each, unbelievably gorgeous, sunset. Not only is the view incredible from the waters edge - there are water views from almost every room in the house (one bedroom and one bath are the only ones without the water view).
We hope to return to Glass House for another memory-filled week!

Love the way the history of the house was shared with me. You were honest and did inform me that this was a "destination" house.
Gorgeous view of the bay from every point in the house. Landscaping is immaculate and so relaxing. Love the modern style of the home from the hard wood floors to the high ceilings , clutter free space and high end appliances. Love the art work in the house.
Loved the property and house but the location from Booth bay, Portland, Camden and Bar Harbor- so far away. Even though these cities were less than 60 miles from the house, the drive to them took 90-120 minutes due to the hilliness of Maine. Even Rockland was 30-45 minute drive even though it was only 15 miles.
