On the Water in Maine was excellent to deal with. They were efficient, organized and friendly. Communication during the entire rental, from first contact to check-out was fantastic!
The cottage was bright and airy with lots of ocean breezes. The wide front porch was wonderful! It had a gate and was a great place for our toddler grandchildren to play while we enjoyed watching the activity in the harbor. We appreciated that we could walk down the steps to the dock, especially when a couple of us rented a kayak for the day and tied it up there. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

Everyone at the agency was very friendly and seemed dedicated to being sure the renter was happy. Justin in particular was very thorough and provided good assistance and detail.
The Jones Cottage is darling! The decor is lovely--simple, soothing colors that complement and enhance the spectacular views. The porch, with its glider bench and numerous rocking chairs, was a delightful place to enjoy the breeze and to watch the boats. The family room was spacious with lots of seating variety and cozy blankets to snuggle under during the cool evenings. The walk down to the dock was great exercise and it was fantastic to be able to go down and enjoy the cool breeze right off the water.

Beautiful cottage. Wish I could pick it up and bring it to our place in the Fingers Lakes (NY). Just love the interior and exterior of your home. My wife and the other wives kept commenting on how beautiful the place was decorated. The view from the porch will be in our minds for a life time. Enjoyed seeing the lobster fisherman, sailing boats and the small cruise ships going through the Boothbay Harbor. The Jones Cottage is the cutest place. Definitely has the feel of what you would think of as a cottage. Very comfortable for 6 people. Great shower!
