I found working with On the Water in Maine to be an easy and pleasant experience. The staff was professional, courteous, and thorough in corresponding with me all the way through. I appreciated this very much for a first time doing so.
With 10 years between our oldest and youngest sons, we have waited a long time to embark on a family vacation, with all the college time for the three of them since our last in 2003. With them now grown, Great Pines offered the perfect location to gather our families and enjoy the time together and the beauty of Maine. This property put us in a central location of all that we wanted to do along the coast, and was quite comfortable. I had waited for this vacation for a long time, and it didn't disappoint ... roomy, clean, well appointed, perfect location, and great views! Will definitely try to go back!

The OTWIM staff was helpful and accommodating and was a source of good advice from the early planning stages through actual occupancy.
The location is wonderful. Just a few minutes from downtown Camden, it has the feeling of a more remote lake. The view, especially on a quiet morning or at sunset is spectacular. The big house is large and comfortable, and easily accommodated our large party for meals and social gatherings. The small cabin is cozy and convenient, and just the right distance from the big house to offer a quiet retreat right on the water. The water around the cabin has a speed limit of "headway speed only" so the cottages not subject to noise and disruption from water skiing and fast boat traffic. The coves near the house offer protected peaceful canoeing and kayaking as well as good fishing, but the whole expanse of the lake is easily reached for higher speed motorboat activities. The public boat launch is about five minutes away by car and a bit more than ten minutes by boat. The docks are perfect for tying up a motorboat or two. There is no sandy beach, but kayaks are easily launched and entered from some flat rocks by the small cabin.

Well-loved by visitors and residents alike, the towns of Camden and Rockport were one until 1890.
