Our leading rental home, the one everyone wants to stay at, Maitri House (pronounced “MY tree”, a Sanskrit word meaning “unconditional friendliness”) is one of only a few elite lakefront homes available for rental on desirable Megunticook Lake.  It features tasteful, comfortable furniture, complete gourmet kitchen, gas fireplace, double-width dock, large deck and screened porch with ping pong table and other games. Maitri House sits right on the southern end of Lake Megunticook, 3 miles from beautiful Camden village and the ocean. The Camden Hills State Park with many hiking trails is also nearby.

Privacy is a key feature of this home with limited exposure to the few surrounding neighbors. Located on a quarter mile long private road, traffic is not a problem either.

Outside is a sprawling deck, a fire pit, stairs leading to the large double dock, and great access to Megunticook Lake. This house is located in a private cove, so boats are not speeding by, and loons, herons, and other wildlife come to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Swimming and fishing are great off the over-sized dock and the screened porch is a perfect retreat in the evening.

This property is a favorite for many returning guests.

We came to this beautiful place, two exhausted surgeons, two sweet teenage boys and found rest, tranquility, relaxation. A place where we could reconnect as a family and spend a precious week of time away from the things that distract us from simply being together. We read, we slept, we ate and we played together. Best of all was the simple gift of conversation. We will be forever grateful to the owners for this beautiful time for our family!

Its our second year at the Maitri house-and it was just as fabulous as the last year! This year we were blessed with spectacular weather, which made the lake even more enjoyable! We're sad to leave-hope to be back next year!

Our fourth stay at the house. Another great family vacation. First one was nine years ago-kids were all under the age of 10, now most are in college. We will always have fond memories of the house, the lake, and Maine (and the raccoons!), and lots of picnics! Thanks for sharing.

We had problems with the rental boat. The team knocked itself out to get the issues resolved. Typical. We have Without exception found everyone working as hard as possible to make our stay outstanding. You cant do much about Camden traffic, but you did give us great direction to avoid it. Outstanding. Everything possible was done to make our stay perfect. Who could ask for anything more? The house was well equipped, clean and had lots of room. The view was stunning, Camden very close, and the area as good as it gets. We were so happy, the TV never got used. Who needs that when the colors all around are constantly changing?

I truly enjoyed the personalized service from On The Water In Maine. I was also impressed by how quickly they responded to any query I might have throughout the year prior to the rental. Kind, courteous and professional at all times. They truly cared about the quality of my stay and the process leading up to the rental - they made me feel as though they were helping a friend, not just a customer. The tranquility of the surroundings on Megunticook. I loved sitting on the dock in the morning with a cup of coffee and a book. Great way to start each day! Lovely home! We've rented on Megunticook for 3 years in a row and this is our favorite house by far.

I've rented with ON the Water in Maine for the past two years. It's been a pleasure dealing with them from day one. They are professional and responsive, and they take very good care of the Maitri House.
My family and I LOVE the Maitri House. It's spacious and comfortable and is situated on beautiful Megunticook Lake. The open floor plan and large deck make the house appear even roomier. And the brand new ping pong table provided endless hours of competitive fun.

The agency was very easy to work with, and was responsive to several questions/requests. The payment timetable and helpful information in the months prior to possession was appreciated.
We enjoyed the extra large dock with room for all to sit and easily get in and out of our various watercraft. We liked and used the grill, the fire pit and the upper deck. The sound system was enjoyed all week. We wished the picnic table had some shade and that the indoor table would seat all 10 of us (OTW responded 10/1/2018: there is a leaf in the front closet for additional people to accommodate up to 10 people at the inside dining table). Another armchair on the screened porch would have been nice.

Our family of 10 thoroughly enjoyed the week here! The house worked well for us - but we lived on the dock, boat, canoe, kayaks and paddle boards. Caught a few fish, skied and tubed, and loved our together time! Also had a great fire in the outdoor pit and watched falling stars on the dock! We loved the open structure of the house and the view of the lake from inside the porch.

The last seven days have been bliss! Eight of us between the ages of 6 and 68 years old created lifetime memories in this beautiful home and town! Our favorites: spending so much time on the lake - we loved the boat, jumping off rocks, canoeing and fishing! - the largest fish was caught off the dock around 7:30pm - 5 lb. large mouth bass!; Maine Sports -ask for Seth, he can help with any outdoor needs; Get coconut toasted ice cream in town; hiking and hiking and hiking - our favorite was Mt. Battie and the Oceanview Trail which was 40 minutes up and 40 minutes down; Sail on The Schooner Olad - perfect for all ages plus BYOB; Beth Farmers Market in Warren for blueberry pie and produce - call ahead and reserve your pie, yum!; Long Grain Restaurant = yum x 10 - order take out if you cant get in. Enjoy!

On the Water in Maine was very responsive to all of our needs and concerns, and the staff was very pleasant and professional to deal with as well.
My family and I had a fabulous time at the Maitri House. The house is beautiful and well-appointed, and so are the grounds. The kitchen has everything you could possibly want and need, and the ping pong table was a huge hit with our family. Perhaps the best feature of all was the large and very comfortable dock. Count us in at Maitri House next year!
