The Loon Landing cottage is one of those rare properties that sits right on the water and offers all of the peace, tranquility and beauty that people expect when coming to Maine. From the living room you can walk out the door onto the deck and right to the waters edge in five steps. This private location with excellent water frontage is a great property for that perfect vacation getaway. Quantabacook Lake has great bass fishing as well as beautiful water to swim. Paddle boat rentals from local providers are popular at this property!

Some Guests with a lack of good agility have mentioned that it can be a challenge to climb the ladder to the sleeping loft - so keep that in consideration when planning sleeping assignments.

This timber framed cottage has vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, a large stone fireplace, a nicely appointed kitchen, and nicely appointed bedrooms and baths.

A detached guest house, which sits back from the main house, consists of a comfortable second living room, laundry, a queen bedroom and a full bath.

Downtown Searsmont is a short drive from the cottage and has a general store for basic grocery provisioning, pizza/deli ordering, and alcohol/ice cream purchase. Belfast is about a 15 minute drive from the house and has great shopping, dining, and a beautiful waterfront for concerts in the park and weekly farmers market. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are only a 90 minute drive from the cottage. 

BEACH CLASSIFICATION: We have categorized this property as having or being near a sandy beach. More specifically for this property - it has a 10 foot wide sandy beach entry area. While small, this is rare in Maine for a lake cottage to have a sandy entry area. This is great for kids and that is why we have classified it as being on a sandy beach.

Throughout our five year experience with One the Water in Maine, we have felt our experience has been first rate. The listings and property photographs are detailed and accurate. Communication throughout the rental process is excellent. Just enough to keep one informed and up-to-date. We always have full confidence with the agency and have no hesitation to recommend.
As always, Loon Landing was a delight. The views are spectacular and the setting is so peaceful. The cabins are very well-equipped with state-of-the-art appliances. Everything was swell. Even nicer, the friendly neighbor brought fresh flowers from his garden as a gift,

This is such a beautifully designed and comfortable rental property! Step outside onto deck and you're practically on the water! Listening to the loons and gazing at the lake is magical and so tranquil! A week spent here is rejuvenation of the soul!

On the Water in Maine covered all the bases. I found the company to be very organized & very responsive to my questions.
Very comfortable home with everything needed to cook a gourmet meal if you should so desire. We were a family of 6 & couldn't have been happier with the set up. Lovely deck, dock & views from the glass sided home. Great little beach to pull kayaks up onto. The loft with 2 single beds worked well for the 2 teenage girls. We all had a ball swimming, boating, fishing, reading, cooking & playing games at night. The teenagers learned how to water ski there.

The rental agreement was extremely detailed.
The sunny deck and flower boxes were so inviting as a haven to relax every day seeing the water only feet away. My 90 year old mother took her nap out there while my great niece and nephew, 2 year old and 3 1/2 year old played in the water.

On the Water in Maine was so great to work with. Everyone was super friendly, and answered all of our questions. Justin answered the phone on a Sunday, and we asked a question that he wasn't sure about, and he called back within five minutes! Great agency!!!
Loon Landing was by far the best place we have ever rented. The house was amazing, with an amazing view of the lake, very clean, and very peaceful. I will definitely be returning!

Everyone was very pleasant to deal with. My initial dealings indicated that I could rent outboards and then I was told they no longer rented on this lake. I had a terrible time finding Maine Boat Rental. I must have tried 8-10 places before I was successful on my own. I have left a brochure for you in the smaller cabin. Maine Boat Rental, China.
We loved Loon Landing. The cabins were beautifully furnished and landscaped. The deck overlooked a gorgeous lake with lovely sunsets.

The staff at On the Water in Maine are efficient, pleasant, and make the entire rental procedure easy. They are readily available but are completely unobtrusive.
This is our second stay at Loon Landing, and it will not be our last! The house is bright, comfortable, and conveniently located, it has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The lake is peaceful and relaxing, and the open space and huge windows bring nature right indoors. Such a great place to unwind. September is a quiet month and the weather was perfect.

On the Water handles things very efficiently and was a pleasure to work with.
Loon Landing is right on the water, the perfect place for a morning coffee on the deck and an kayak trip to visit with the loons and watch the sun rise or fall. The house is furnished and decorated with great care, and having a separate cabin for visitors or just doing the laundry is wonderful. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice and hope to return again and again. The tranquility was truly amazing.

Second time renting through On the Water in Maine. Would do so again without hesitation. They make it easy.
We rent houses frequently, this is the first time the actual house was better than the photos! Beautiful cottage on a beautiful lake. Peaceful, relaxing. Amazing stars and sunsets steps away from the cottage. Tastefully and thoughtfully decorated. Very comfortable place to stay.

Communication Is fantastic! Ben is most helpful and is our favorite "go to" guy. Our 4th year renting with On the Water in Maine.
Loon Landing is the best! Provides all of the comforts of home plus the solitude of really being out in the woods. The loons woo you to sleep at night. If you want to visit a quaint village for some "home cooking" and crafts or visit the coast for some ocean air and seafood it's all there. Our fourth year at this property. We will be back!

Working with "On the Water in Maine" is simple, clean, and efficient. Couldn't ask for any better service.
The loon landing property was fantastic with a secluded feeling without being in the wilderness. The buildings were new and well maintained with huge windows to view the gorgeous scenery. The property is well situated near the coast and had a perfect location for watching nice summer sunsets. The lake was pristine and perfect for kayaking and loon/eagle watching. It was a charming experience all around.

A very positive experience-no complaints. On an extremely windy, rough water afternoon we returned from a day in Camden to find our little fishing boat that we rented from On the Water in Maine flooding with water. Ben arrived about 5 minutes after our call to bail out the boat. Thank you!
Whoever designed your little house-they truly did an excellent job-love the stone floors especially! The view The view The view!!! Best lakeview ever because of all of the glass facing the lake. We also noted all of the attention to quality detail in every single room-everywhere you looked it was a perfect lakefront vacation home.
