On the Water in Maine was a pleasure to deal with. They were informative and professional. They were quick to take care of any issues we had while we were there for the week.
Juniper Bank is a wonderful home to spend some time in. The views of the water are amazing! Every morning my sister and I got up early to watch the sunrise over the water. Just spectacular! The house is spacious and its really nice to have several living areas to enjoy. The kitchen is very well stocked and everything you need for cooking meals is there. The house is located in a quiet residential area and we enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area.

Working with OTWIM is so easy because every facet of the rental process has been well thought out. Necessary information is shared to renters in timely emails, so that the renter really knows at all times what needs to be done and when.
The view from the house is fantastic, whether sitting on the deck or reading from the upstairs living room or waking up to the sunrise in the bedroom.

On the Water in Maine, Inc. makes every step effortless for the renter. Everyone I have worked with is thorough, knowledgeable and polite. The level of detail and transparency that this company provides is really appreciated, there are never any surprises when you get to your vacation property.
This property was beautiful inside and out. The house was airy and bright with beautiful views of the water and the extensive gardens.

On the Water in Maine is never a disappointment. The description of the cottages have always been accurate and up to date.
House was lovely, well appointed and very clean. We did rent kayaks from On the Water in Maine and they delivered them to the house. It was a hike to put the kayaks in the water, but we found ourselves only heading to the water at high tide - which was fine. Carrying a kayak over the rocks can be dicey when the tides are lower.

Always professional. I left some of my clothes at an Inn on the way to Maine. They shipped them to On the Water in Maine and they brought the package to me when it arrived.
Our 3rd stay at Juniper Bank - We love the view!

On the Water in Maine was very easy and pleasant to work with. They were attentive to our needs, responded immediately to questions and kept us informed via email of severe weather alerts as well as traffic issues. The process they use for checking in and out is convenient and hassle free. They had regular email contact with us in the time preceding the rental and provided detailed information on the house and how to make the most of our stay. They are a very professional group that takes its mission seriously in providing quality properties and excellent customer service.
Juniper Bank is located in the heart of Owls Head for ultimate convenience to the mid-coast region and beyond. It has all the modern conveniences, a beautifully landscaped yard and a gorgeous view of Owls Head harbor and Penobscot Bay from the deck. Having two master suites was a plus for us and for our visitors. The basement recreation room was great for teenagers to have a space of their own. This is a very nice rental property with lots to recommend it.

Excellent in every way! I'd hate to rent from anyone else than On the Water in Maine
We had an absolutely perfect week at Juniper Bank. The lupines were in bloom and every day was clear and sunny. We loved the views from the house - the best of all the rentals we've had - and the easy access to the water was a big plus. We spent hours hunting sea glass as we watched the lobster boats motor to and from Owls Head harbor, just around the bend. The house itself is beautifully decorated and the rooms are bright and sunny. We also enjoyed all of the original artwork on the walls.

Had some difficulty getting in to the place when I arrived as the code I was emailed didn't work. I called On The Water and Justin came out within a few minutes, let us in and changed the code. Turns out there was a mix up and he was professional, apologetic and helpful.
Loved the incredible water views from the living room, downstairs bedroom and upstairs bedroom and living area. Although it was a bit cold outside, we also enjoyed the deck when we could.

Everyone at the On the Water in Maine was very helpful even to explaining Wi-Fi since I'm new at that. And the patience you showed after Mom had a heart attack & we were not sure if we could make it. And it all worked out, thank goodness!
What a lovely summer home! Thank you for sharing! And I loved the finishing touches this year.

On the Water in Maine staff were fast, helpful, efficient, and non-defensive (most important). They seemed to be well-trained and focused on us our enjoying the vacation.
We loved the direct view of the ocean, lobster boats on the little harbor, the sun, sky, clouds. The sunrise over the ocean at 5 AM. The fog obscuring the ocean one morning. The closeness to Rockland. And the house itself was modern, clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Maine needs no reason to visit! It is just heaven. I only wish I lived closer!
