I have worked with OTWIM for many years and have been completely satisfied with their service from beginning to end.
This was our 4th year at Juniper Banks-we absolutely love the set up of the cottage, the location, the view & the convenience of traveling Mid-Coast Maine. We have vacationed in the Mid-Coast for over 20 years. We are Maine born & raised, have traveled extensively-but this our favorite place to vacation.

Everything went smoothly and on time. The staff was courteous and helpful.
The home was clean and well furnished. Spectacular view. quiet, great area and close to everything. We have stayed in Owl's Head before, so we knew the area. But still enjoy the great people at The Black Harpoon in Port Clyde and the Atlantic Baking Co. and Rockland Cafe in Rockland.

Tiffany and her daughter came over to help out with the heating situation and were very responsive and helpful (and her daughter was quite entertaining!). The staff in the main office were also very helpful. I feel very confident in the property when renting from On the Water in Maine. Everything is spelled out clearly and if there are problems the agency is very responsive. We did have trouble with the instructions to get in the house and believe that we had the same problem two years ago.

Meg and team were great and very responsive as usual. On the Water in Maine is a great agency.
Spectacular views,great location. View from the deck is one of the best we've had in many years of renting on the mid-coast. House itself is a bit odd, with shared bathrooms and uncomfortable seating throughout. Overall, a wonderful spot that we'd consider renting again.

Dear Meg and Tiffany,
My family and I would like to again express our sincere appreciation for your efforts to go above and beyond in helping us to settle into Juniper Bank for a lovely vacation stay.
Juniper Bank's peaceful natural setting and spectacular views served as inspiration for the artists among us. With glorious sunrises over the bay, lobster boats heading out to service their traps, and schooners sailing in to anchor for the night - Juniper Bank provides the perfect opportunity to relax amidst the best of coastal Maine

And, thank you Tiffany for delivering items that we shipped to the office. Staff is five star!

Very efficient.timely and thorough!
We loved the view and proximity ( walking distance) to the lobster docks and the General Store in Owls Head. We like the layout of the house with the two bedrooms and bath and a sitting room upstairs in addition to the downstairs area.We would love to see a bigger more comfortable sofa in the downstairs living room area and the removal of the very large coffee table as it makes it more difficult to enjoy sitting in that area. We love the beautiful antiques and coziness of the property.

Working with OTWIM continues to be a breeze because every detail of the rental process has been so thoroughly developed and shared with the renter.
This is our 4th stay at Juniper Bank, so obviously we really love this property and it's location. We love the view, especially from the upstairs living room, and look forward each morning to the departing lobsterman in their boats.

The staff is always courteous and responsive. The property is well managed, well kept and updates are made every year. They listen to their guests and do an outstanding job of attending to their needs. Renting through them is efficient, informative and highly organized. They have an outstanding website that is easy to navigate and contains all the information needed to decide on a property to rent.
We return to Juniper Bank year after year because the house is large, comfortable and is equipped with all the necessities of modern living. The view of the water, islands and Owls Head harbor is our favorite feature of the house. It is also convenient to Rockland and all the boating, entertainment, restaurants, art galleries, walking trails, etc. the area has to offer.

I have been renting properties in Mid Coast Maine for many years through On The Water in Maine. This is a top shelf operation with wonderful rental properties and staff. The check in and check out are quick and easy and they provide great directions to the rental property. Thanks for a seamless vacation.
Juniper Banks is a beautiful property with great landscaping, flower gardens and a well built fire pit with plenty of deck and outside seating. There is a mowed path with a rope guide going down to the water where the children searched for sea glass and rocks. It is close to Rockland and numerous restaurants as well as a short walk to the Owls Head Store and Owls Head Light House which we hiked in the early morning with not another person in sight. The living accommodations were spacious and homey with 3 levels,2 separate living rooms, a well equipped kitchen and ocean views from all floors and 2 of the 3 bedrooms. We look forward to returning next year.

Working with OTWIM continues to be a no-lose experience because of how well the whole process, from e-checks to check-in, has been perfected.
We love the view out over the water to Monroe Island, whether from the deck or the upstairs living room and bedroom. Believe it or not, we enjoy hearing the lobster boats moving out, beginning about 4:45 a.m.! Besides being well-appointed, Juniper Bank is ideally situated for many day trips in the mid-coast region. These are the features we like best about the property.

This property is ideal for sunrise. There are unobstructed views of the sun from the deck with a beautiful pink and orange sky. The property is quite large, with three living spaces (one on each floor), three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a good size kitchen. The kitchen is also well equipped with little gadgets not found at some other properties. The lawn isn't so idea for sunbathing or running around as it is for meandering, it's quite sloped and the large side is out front. The flowers are lovely though and the fire pit is nice. The house floor plan is a bit odd, with lots of doors since you go around and around in a circle on both floors. The disorientation fades though. I imagine they will work on the sulphur taste of the water, but if not bottled is suggested. Also the yard doesn't have lounge chairs so bringing those would be suggested.

The agency, On the Water in Maine, Inc., was top notch. Communications were excellent, description of the property we rented was accurate. Everything was efficiently handled and left me with no questions to ask or concerns. All interaction was professional and caring.
Juniper Bank was a lovely, well-maintained and furnished home with a pristine view of Penobscot Bay, an island and Owl's Head harbor. Spending time on the deck overlooking all of this was most relaxing and entertaining.
