On The Water is the most detail oriented company with whom I've ever worked. Top Notch!
We have stayed at the Periwinkle Cottage for four years now, and we still enjoy it tremendously. It is well appointed, and the view from the deck of Penobscot Bay is wonderful. Our dog enjoys long walks along the shore road, too!

This agency was great to work with and highly recommend them! I've never rented a house before and they made it so easy for me. They're very responsive, and always there to answer a questions.
This is such an adorable house. It was so cozy and we felt right home from the start. The wrap around deck was everything! We loved having coffee outside with such a beautiful view. This was such a peaceful, relaxing vacation and we can't wait to go back!

A lovely,peaceful cottage with a gorgeous view of Penobscot Bay from the large deck. Very comfortable house with lots of amenities. I especially liked taking walks along the Shore Road which winds around the bay.

Everyone from the agency was terrific. They were instantly responsive, always helpful, friendly and polite. We had a small issue with water pressure (which resolved by itself) but they were ready to swing into action even at 10pm on a Sunday night. Very much appreciated!
Periwinkle Cottage was gorgeous. There are lots of different spaces to sit, so kids can play videogames on the TV and adults can read books without bothering each other. The deck has a lovely view and the smell of the ocean was intoxicating.

On the Water in Maine Inc. was a very easy company to rent through. We loved the fact that we were hearing from them periodically before our stay to keep us informed. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Periwinkle was a wonderful cottage! The view of the water was where we parked ourselves every morning with a cup of coffee. The beds were comfortable and the cottage was so charming! The amenities were great! I loved having a dish washer and washer and dryer. The fact that we were able to bring our dog was the best! He had an amazing time as well! We could not have. Even more comfortable! Thank you!

This is our 3rd year renting from this agency, and they are wonderfully organized and bend over backward to ensure the happiness of their guests.
The Periwinkle Cottage is a well equipped, peaceful and enjoyable place to experience a relaxing vacation in the Penobscot Bay area. The shore road is a great place to walk, and you get to see both the moon and sun rise over the water if the time is right. We really enjoyed our stay!

This agency is totally committed to their guests, and makes sure that everything goes smoothly. When we had a question about the TV, Ben, the property manager, made a special trip out on a Sunday morning to explain it to us. They go above and beyond what most people expect from a vacation rental company.
The Periwinkle cottage is a lovely place, with relaxing views of Penobscot Bay from the spacious deck. It is fully equipped and very comfortable, and we enjoyed our stay!

On the Water in Maine, Inc. was a great Agency, through the entire experience. Information received leading up to the rental was detailed and timely and they are very friendly and attentive.
The location was great, though the beach across from the house is a bit rocky to enjoy with small children. But the convenient access to the beautiful beach in Lincolnville made up for it.

The Periwinkle Cottage was perfect. Our 15 month old daughter loved throwing stones into the water and playing in the small side yard. House was well equipped with everything we didn't even know we needed- hand mixer to make fresh whipped cream, an assortment of books for rainy days, and extra pillows for added comfort. The private pebble beach was the icing on the cake!

On the Water in Maine is a great agency. You know the rental will be nice, well equipped and clean when you deal with On the Water in Maine! If anything is missing, they go out of their way to help. We will rent through this agency again and again.
We were very pleased with the Periwinkle Cottage. It was clean and had a wonderful, open floor plan. We loved sitting on the new deck, looking at the ocean. The table and chairs were a comfortable place to dine. We did not spend time at the beachfront in front of the cottage - it was hard to walk here and not easy to get in the water. But we loved the small, Lincolnville Beach, just to the south - so spent a few days there. The walk along Shore Road is beautiful. The bedrooms are very comfortable and it was nice having two bathrooms.

Members of the On the Water in Maine team were very accommodating and helpful in making arrangements. We felt this was a seamless vacation experience and all agreed that we wanted to (return to this property) and certainly go through On the Water Maine for our vacation needs.
We wrote comments in the journal at the property. This vacation at your home was the first in many years for me, my husband and two adult daughters, one who came from Burlington, VT and the other from Richmond, VA. We quickly felt at home and settled in. We spent our mornings having breakfast on the deck enjoying the sun and view of the bay. My husband and I got up each morning and walked along shore drive. And we enjoyed many of our meals on the deck. We all agreed that next year we wanted to return to your home. Thank you.

Really two towns (legally) - Belfast and Northport are neighbors, and then Bayside is located inside of the town of Northport. While only a short distance from coastal Route 1, Bayside remains a well-kept secret; a small hamlet that takes one back to a simpler, uncomplicated time. A few years back, DownEast Magazine did a great article on Bayside that is still mostly relevant today. Click HE...
