Sunset Cottage is an incredible property with a dock, GREAT VIEWS, and lots of relaxing possibilities. Many in our office believe this is one of our best property offerings for a complete Maine summer vacation. Guests proved this by making it our most rented and well-received home since it was built and listed with us. Nearby Bath recently was recognized with a national award for historic preservation. Neighboring Brunswick is a small college town with great amenities. Sunset Cottage itself sleeps 8 in 3 bedrooms and a family room with the two twins. To get to 10 people in 5 bedrooms, you need to rent The Sunset Cottage Boathouse guest cottage also located on the property about 80 yards away. If a Guest doesn't additionally rent the Boat House, it will remain vacant. Located in the Sabino summer community area of West Bath, Sunset Cottage is a true destination property, and world-famous Popham Beach, Freeport shopping, and historic downtown Bath are all just minutes away; if you can pry yourself away from the waterfront views.
Outside, kayaking and swimming from the dock is sure to be fun. The young ones in your group will enjoy finding treasures along the shore at low tide. This newer property is already bringing renters back year-after-year.

Everyone we spoke to was accommodating, cheerful, knowledgeable and helpful.
In both properties we enjoyed the location, the comfort and space in the properties. At Sunset Cottage, the space around the property also made it feel special. Watching the wild birds from the private jetty or the porch/fire pit areas was relaxing and fascinating. The location is fantastic, the house is well furnished, comfortable and a relaxing place to be.

We have rental many vacation homes over the years. This property was immaculate, well-furnished. The kitchen, for cooking purposes, was well stocked and organized.
My fishermen loved the dock, easy access to the lake, and fishing was GOOD. Nice that Popham Beach is closeby as well as quaint towns for restaurants and shopping.

This is our 4th year renting from On The Water in Maine and the experience just keeps getting better! Thank you for such prompt attention and all the detailed instructions, etc.
Loved the house! Such a large open area between living room/kitchen/dining with the sunroom as a fantastic bonus. The balcony off the master bedroom was a lovely place to read and the favorite for the kids was the absolutely enormous bedroom/playroom upstairs. An added bonus was the dock/beach area - lots of times spent searching for hermit crabs, sea glass and skipping rocks.

Everything was great. We loved the house and grew very attached to the view. The kitchen was well supplied and pleasant to work in. There were so many places from which to enjoy the view of the water--the main room, the sun room, the deck, the hillside with the fire pit, the dock, and of course on the water itself! We'd gladly come back here.

The Sunset Cottage is appropriately named. Imagine yourself amid the most picturesque, peaceful waterfront scene from a well-appointed, light filled, spacious and thoughtfully furnished home, then imagine the most brilliant and dynamic sunset you've ever witnessed, and you will understand the joy that we felt every day and night that we stayed at the cottage. The area is fun-filled, beautiful, ready for summer pastimes. The town of Bath has everything a vacationer might need. Other scenic and personable towns such as Boothbay Harbor and Rockland are only 40-65 minute drives of green and rolling hills, farm stands, and consignment shops for treasures. Delicious food abounds. The house is clean, well-tended, with lovely boaty beachy artwork and traditional decor. We had plenty of room for our group of 8, with two young children. The grounds were delightful and exciting to explore, especially for my boys! The trees and glimmering rock boulders are covered in lichen, fireflies flirt in the night air, and fishing boats drop traps and buoys in the nearby waters in the earliest hours of the day. With a dock and rocky tidal beach on the property, we were able to rent sea kayaks and explored the waters around us. I hesitate to describe all the great things about this rental property, it is like a secret gem I may want to keep to myself!

The Agency is efficient. On the Water in Maine makes your vacation easy with a clean property, great explanations of everything you need to know, plus guide books to help navigate the area. We would definitely refer our friends!
Sunset Cottage had everything you want in a rental property and then some. We travelled with teens and they loved the ping pong table and the game room upstairs. The reading room and sunporch we the perfect start and finish to the day. We did a bunch of day trips including Portland, Freeport, Brunswick, Popham Beach. Popham Beach was breathtaking. We would definitely do that again.

On the Water in Maine was very responsive to all questions. I needed help with the fireplace and accessing the combination lock to the house and got immediate help, in the evening, on a weekend. Great experience!
- Breathtaking view from the back porch - facing the water - throughout the day, especially the sunsets. The sunroom - adjacent to the back porch - served as an impromptu office and was just a great place to experience the view, the sounds of nature and the wonderful breeze coming across the inlet.

- Beautiful property overall, tall trees, provide a nice secluded vacation home
