This stunning 6 acre groomed and wooded private park of towering conifers and beeches is set on its own peninsula. The property was once the location for a summer camp for visually impaired children and has a wide trail left-over from the camp that wraps the property. Surrounded by gorgeous oceanfront on 3 sides, there is easy water access from every aspect. The luxurious open plan contemporary home is a Taleisin design showing influences of Frank Lloyd Wright. The home is surrounded by beautiful perennial gardens, walking paths, a gazebo overlooking the cove and a one room artist cottage hideaway among the trees. The floating dock allows tidal access and has roughly 9' of water at high tide where low tide the float is in mud. For the discriminating vacationer, this is the ultimate Maine oceanfront experience! An ensuite bathroom was added over the winter of 2014/15 for the two-twin bedroom.

From our initial contact with your staff to the completion of our rental, we have been very pleased and impressed with the professionalism and knowledgeable individuals we have interfaced with. You should be very pleased with the image projected through your website, the timeliness of your team's communications, the ease and thoroughness of your leasing documents, and the extras like arranging for the writer's cabin to be open and set up for Sandy.
Unfortunately, there is not one feature that can be singled out, but the following are the significant ones; 1. The privacy of the property; its setting on the water; walking paths with features like the writer's cabin, gazebo, and sitting area; and wildlife. 2.) The home and decor are inviting. We all found it relaxing. By far the kitchen sink was the most popular place - I have washed more dishes than I would have imaged - just the place to captive your imagination and for seeing God's hand at work.

All interactions with team members were positive and straightforward. It is an incredibly beautiful property, in a stunning location. We loved just sitting in the two sunrooms and feeling the breeze through the windows and watching the water which surrounds the point of land that the home is located on

Over the past 30 years we have rented from a number of other agencies in Maine and things have not always gone smoothly, this was not the case with On the Water in Maine. The staff was very professional, the website was easy to use, their instructions were clear and correspondence was punctual.
The property was in great condition, the hiking trails were an added bonus. We brought with us a 17' center console boat and made full use of the dock. Friendship is a quiet little town, sufficiently removed from Route 1 and the tourist path. Wallace's General Store and Jameson Point Lobster were close buy and provided everything we needed. The basement rec room served us well on rain days, though we discovered that none us will ever make a living playing pool.

Straightforward rental agreement, we were informed of everything we needed all through the process.
The extensive hiking trails were fun for all, watching the seals rangle the mackerel from both ends like an all you can eat buffet as the tides change, the large yard was a favorite for my two Labrador retrievers

OWM was very helpful during the nearly year long process of finding a property, settling on dates, negotiating our dog, and understanding physical details of the property. I think this is a company that excels in customer service and tries very hard to accommodate clients. This makes OWM exceptional.
Overall a wonderful house for we 6 adults, 2 children, 1 toddler, and our family dog. Plenty of room both inside and outside. Nicely situated on a peninsula without any neighbors nearby so if the children wanted to run and shout there was no worry about bothering neighbors. The dock was great for launching the kayaks and the kayaking around this area was so beautiful. The rocky beach and groomed trails kept the children endlessly entertained. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked with equipment, at least 3 different types of coffee makers, not just the Keruig type. Dishware and cutlery was very nice and plenty of it. Then there was the quiet! So tranquil and peaceful. Really helped all of us recharge our personal batteries.

For the most part, we felt On the Water was pleasant to work with.
We enjoyed sitting on the dock at the end of the day and sharing thoughts of the day with the rest of our family members. In the morning we would sit on the dock and have coffee and discuss our plans for the day ahead. Either way, it was peaceful and even saw an eagle soar above us, a horseshoe crab in the water, a jellyfish, and other big fish jump from the water.

Gorgeous property - and so private on its own peninsula. We especially enjoyed our walks along the trail which surround the house. Beautiful views along the way as it is right on the water's edge. Nice, open concept within the large interior of the house. Well managed and clean throughout.
