The On the Water in Maine team was excellent to work with! You all were very response and friendly throughout the lead up to the rental and through the week. It was overall a great experience. Thank you!
Golden Owl is an excellent property and probably one of the best appointed houses we have ever rented. It is extremely close to downtown Rockland and makes it very easy to enjoy the activities in the Rockland/Camden/Rockport area.

I booked at the last minute and the process was very smooth. When we arrived at Golden Owl, we had difficulty connecting to the Wi-Fi and the representative I spoke to on the phone, was very pleasant and helpful.
Our stay was very comfortable for the four of us. The house is beautifully and thoughtfully decorated. My daughter and I are Pottery Barn fans and had fun spotting PB items! Favorite features... view through the Master Bedroom's windows, the well designed and stocked kitchen, big upstairs bathroom, quick access to Rockland. The house was extremely clean and had lovely dcor and detailed design features. Our next trip to Maine, the whole family is coming and we will need a bigger house. Otherwise we would stay at Golden Owl again.

The team, and Paige in particular, were incredible this year. They helped us find a perfect place to stay in a prompt, friendly, and efficient manner!
The Golden Owl was a total delight to stay in. We spent incredible evenings having a glass of wine and watching the sun set over the water on the relaxing back deck. Our favorite feature of the property was the stunning gardens the landscaping, flowers and gardens are meticulously kept and cared for and it was fun to walk around and admire the different flowers in season. Having perfect weather helped too.
