Located on the Northwestern shore of beautiful Coleman Pond, this quaint cottage is in an idyllic vacation setting. The property has pond frontage with views of the water from the deck and almost every room of the cottage.
Welcoming you when you arrive at the property is a comfortable, nicely furnished and well-maintained Maine lakeside retreat. At the water's edge, there is a dock for fishing or swimming. The area near the dock is only 3-4 feet deep but you can swim out to where it is deeper very easily. Coleman Pond is 223 acres and fishing for small and large mouth bass and white perch is a popular pastime.
This property is great for a family with children that is looking for a traditional lakeside vacation in Maine in a clean, nicely furnished atmosphere.
Coleman Pond is located 8 miles North of Camden and 11 miles south of Belfast. The nearby Drake Corner Store has pizza, sandwiches, beer, wine, some groceries and even fishing tackle.

All team members were very helpful and quick to respond to questions.
Too many favorite features to list. Highlights were the pond itself, the quiet and peacefulness and general location of the property. The dock for early morning coffee or late afternoon snacks. The cottage itself was homelike and had everything needed for an extended stay.

This was our third time working with the team and we were pleased. We had a slight electrical problem but Tiffany took care of us right away. Everything was great and that is why we keep coming back.
We love the views from the deck and dock. We love the serenity and we can see the stars at night! Very peaceful.

Entire team was excellent. Very quick responses to email questions and phone calls pre-booking. Communication was exactly what they said it would be and all timelines/next steps were as expected.
The property was better than the pictures and description in the listing. Very peaceful and quiet with a beautiful view of the pond. There were many favorites, the back deck, the dock (anytime of day) and the location to everything you need in the area was superb.
The camp was clean and spacious and obviously well cared for. Were looking forward to a return visit for years to come.

Working with the staff of On the Water in Maine is so easy. They are always available for an emergency, and every time I've left a voice mail, or sent an e-mail with questions, I received a reply the same day. This is the second year I've rented through On the Water in Maine and I highly recommend using this company.
Love being on Coleman Pond, it's tranquil and beautiful. The house is a true Maine "camp", rustic but with some modern conveniences (dishwasher, washer and dryer).

OTW is excellent. This was our second season renting through them and not only will we come back, but I recommend them to all my friends. They have a variety of properties in locations and at price points that are highly appealing to us. The two homes we've stayed in were clean and well appointed, with everything we needed for an excellent vacation. The folks at OTW answer my MANY questions quickly and thoroughly, through email and on the phone, in any way I choose to ask. They are helpful with everything I needed help with.
We loved Coleman Cottage! The site is lovely, in the woods and looking down at the pond. The cottage itself feels like a camp cabin with all the amenities we wanted to also make it a perfect vacation house. We especially loved the floating raft that we left tied to the floating doc.

We like the privacy, close proximity to the lake, and private dock. We rented stand up paddle boards and used them every day. The house had plenty of space for our family of four.

The agency is terrific and I heartily recommend it to anyone wanting to rent in midcoast.
We loved the house, as we did when we rented it in 2015. The location is perfect, the pond is beautiful, and the house itself is incredibly warm and comfortable. This year, however, we had a few hurdles that made our stay a bit difficult: first, the presence of yellow jacket nests all over the outside of the house. These things are bound to happen in Maine, but I am deathly allergic, and given all the renters who doubtless stay over the course of a season, I would have thought that a caretaker would have been more on the ball to keep up with them. More than once we were strafed by them, which prevented us from spending as much time on the deck as we would have liked. Second, the neighbors were incredibly noisy; one talked at the top of her lungs at 6:30 am every morning, their dog ran loose all over the rental property, we came home from Camden one day to find them having a party and a jacked-up pickup truck was parked in the driveway on the rental property. Kind of a drag, considering we go to Maine for quiet. Overall, it was a delightful stay, albeit challenging at times.

I love On the Water in Maine. They are so easy to work with. Our cottage was supposed to have a Kurig coffee maker but when we got there it only had a regular frip pot. Talked to Justin and he delivered a Kurig the next day.
This cottage is in a great location. Nice and quiet but not far from Camden or Rockland. Just what we needed for a relaxing vacation.

The management company was friendly and helpful. When we unexpectedly rescued a dog after making our initial reservation we were guided through the process for bringing a pet along easily and efficiently.
This was a lovely cabin that was accurately portrayed in the online photos. We appreciated the multiple beds since we had four teenagers with us; they each had their own! We ate most meals at the cabin and found the cookware and appliances were quite adequate for our needs--especially the lobster pot! It was great to have a washer and dryer available. The towels and bed sheets were clean and of decent quality; the towels may have even been brand-new. Enjoyed quite a few evenings working on jigsaw puzzles we found in the home. We were pleasantly surprised to find a campfire pit on site (it had not been listed in the property description)!
The property description mentioned a K Cup coffee maker, but there was not one there. It was completely acceptable that just a regular style coffee maker was present, but we would not have brought our K cups on our 12 hour drive had we known we wouldn't be able to use them. We did ask upon check-in why the floating dock was not yet installed, but we were told that the owner did not have a chance to get it in the water (we were on property June 17-24). We were told it might be put in during the week, but no one ever came to do so. This was a major disappointment for our kids. In fact, it was one of the amenities that had helped us to choose this particular property. This wooded property lot is located on the shores of a lovely, quiet pond, but we were only able to appreciate that silence for the first two days. Monday morning at 7am the construction crew showed up next door and worked every day that week. While a neighbor's renovation project is completely out of the property's owners control we would have appreciated a courtesy notification prior to our arrival disclosing this issue.
We had a wonderful, relaxing week in this cozy and inviting cabin on beautiful Coleman Pond despite these issues.

On the Water in Maine never fails to deliver a professional rental experience with superb properties. They take the worry out of our vacation lodging...it's almost too easy!
The Coleman Pond Cottage provided the space and casual atmosphere that made our family feel at home. The view of the pond provided us with the ability to watch bald eagles fishing and loons cruising by. The shabby chic decor was very welcoming.

On The Water was a pleasure to work with. We had no issues with the property itself, but felt great knowing that we could call OTW 24/7 should anything come up. We were unable to return our rented kayaks to the drop off location, and OTW was very accommodating. A great rental experience.
We had a wonderful stay at the Coleman Pond Cottage. The house was beautifully situated above the pond with a great view of the water from the deck, and the dock was the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee (or a cocktail) while watching the loons and great blue herons look for their own breakfast (or dinner). The interior of the cottage was spotless and very comfortably decorated. The owners have done a great job providing an unfussy yet vey attractive environment that's perfect for relaxing. We're already looking forward to coming back!

The rental property was beautiful. The inside exceeded our expectations. Well maintained, quiet, and well stocked. Only suggestion would be for an easier access to the pond, such as stairs down from the deck. We also would have enjoyed ceiling fans in the bedrooms.
