DOGS PERMITTED? Sorry, Dogs are NOT permitted at this property.
This beautiful cottage in Union enjoys all the wonderful things that Crawford Lake offers - and more! The private dirt road to access the property is a mile long which is great for morning walks. The dock is great to swim and fish from.
As a 3-bedroom cottage, there is plenty of room for everyone - A great family destination property. Bring in all the groceries and plan on not leaving again. You will be thoroughly entertained by using the lake to kayak, fish, and swim, as well as relaxing on the great deck overlooking the lake.
The trail to the lake from the house drops about 50 feet over a 200 ft grade, so - while not "steep" - it is a hill to climb or go down. People with walking/mobility challenges will not be able to access the lake easily.

This was our fourth stay with On the Water (first in 2017), and as always, the team was efficient and helpful and very clear with directions and protocols. A pleasure to work with.
We stayed at Lazy Days cottage on Crawford Pond, and it was the best of the three cottages at which we've stayed: comfortable and clean, with wonderful amenities in the kitchen. Wonderful to take breakfast on the east facing deck. The grounds are beautifully kept with lovely wild flowers. The walk to the lake is a bit arduous, just as described, but a good workout for all of us (even 85-year-old me). The dock is very well maintained, and swimming is a delight.

Ive never had an issue. Everyone is kind, informative, and incredibly helpful.
We just stayed at Lazy Days and my favorite feature was, of course, the lake. I also loved the open floor plan and location in relation to my favorite towns.

Always have a good experience.
Rental house was as described, very neat and clean. The Pond was beautiful with the sound of loons calling. Though the walk down to the water and dock is steep, it's worth it.

Really only dealt with NK who as mentioned was excellent and seemed like a great guy! But the staff has always been attentive. Even the random trash guy was very nice when he came by to pick up the trash at the house, he waited while I grabbed an extra bag of trash from the house with pickup.
By the way Took advantage of the Kayak promotion thru Ducktrap when we rented Lazy Days! Crawford lake was so much fun with Kayaks and paddle board. We dealt with Dan in 2017 when you had Duckcove and he was great again and spent time go over the use of the kayaks with kids and adults and helped us with life jackets. We loved the kayaks at LoonCall which introduced us to Kayaks but Ducktraps really has top knotch equipment with good prices.

On the Water is a very thorough and professional agency. I have been renting through them for several years and I have never had a complaint with their service.
The cottage is very nice and comfortable. Potential renters should be alerted that the path down to the lake is quite steep, which could make it unsafe or inaccessible for an elderly or disabled person. Additionally, there is no public boat launch on the lake, so you have to carry your kayaks or canoes up and down the aforementioned steep slope. The dock and swim float are very nice and the swimming was excellent. Crawford Pond is rather large for a pond, with large swaths of the shoreline undeveloped. There is also an island wild life preserve in the middle of the pond. There were quite a few loons around, as well as bald eagles. A beautiful place to vacation!

We loved the place! Lazy Days was a great place to stay! Its definitely on a steep slope but that was ok - got my cardio in each day. The lake is beautiful and enjoyed swimming. There was plenty of room and having two full bathrooms was nice.

We appreciated the quick response we received with our TV controller and the installation of a new washer.
We enjoyed sitting on the chairs on the deck in the early morning sun and watching the loons as they dive and reappear distances away, and we loved hearing their calls in the quiet of the night.
We spent many afternoons reading under the umbrellas on the deck and having dinner there with our family. It was a very peaceful stay.
