As I said earlier, it became very apparent that Tiffany has the customers satisfaction as a top priority. She went out of her way to bring a cooler and ice to our house late on Saturday night when we discovered the refrigerator wasn't working. She then made sure that a replacement fridge was acquired and delivered the next day. It is expected that things break or go wrong with rental properties, but how the business responds to those problems is what makes the difference.

on the water has always been professional with all of the dealings of rentals but they also add their personal touch. very comfortable people to talk to.
the cottage was nice. the views of the pond right outside the doors was beautiful. even though much of our stay was cloudy, the inside of the cottage was bright because of all the window area and the openess of the interior. very serene and peaceful. already planning on returning.

The agency was very easy to work with and not in your face.
The Sunfish Cottage was a nice location. The lake was extremely clean and clear. My son dropped his phone in the lake by the swim dock and was actually able to find it. That is how clean it is. The fishing was excellent.

Very knowledgable of the properties. The whole process was easy from start to finish. No hidden costs or fees.
It was the perfect size for our family: 2 adults, a teenager, and grammie. The pond was a nice size for kayaking: smooth water and not a lot of big boats. The deck was a perfect t spot to enjoy coffee first thing in the mornings and a glass of wine last thing at night. It's better than what the pictures showed it to be.

Our experience was very positive, check-in and check-out were very easy. When I had problems with the TV due to my mistake, the person working with me was very cordial and patient in helping me figure out how to get it to work again.
The house was very clean and nicely decorated, and is on an ideal location in the woods only yards from the most beautiful lake that you could imagine. We had a fantastic breeze coming through the many windows, and view from the living room/deck onto the lake was one of our favorite things. There was nothing like looking out on the lake in the morning while drinking a cup of coffee and hearing the wildlife. We were very fortunate that the weather was beautiful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our all too short week in the Maine mid-coast area and hope to be able to come back again next year.

We loved the style of the house. We liked the large kitchen table. We spent a lot of time around it eating and playing games as we enjoyed looking at the beautiful lake. There was a large screen TV in the living room which was a nice feature and the house was very clean.

Can't say enough great things about On the Water in Maine, everyone has been so nice and helpful. We have rented before from them and will rent again from them.
We loved the cabin, it was warm and cozy. The location on the lake was perfect but would have been better if the weather was nicer (it rained most of the week).
