Pleasant, responsive team. Able to use internet to arrange for rental.
We always enjoy the proximity to Camden-walking distance. Cottage meets all our needs. We do not need more than row bedrooms which makes Captains Cottage perfect for us.

OTWM was great to work with--easy to use the website and representatives were always pleasant.
Great summer rental home. The owners clearly have an eye for decor and "little things" needed. From cookware/utensils to make a gourmet meal, to reading lamps over the sofa/chairs. Definitely a home away from home.

Very courteous staff. Very helpful during the rental process. Check in and out is very efficient. A special thanks regarding your e-mail regarding traffic issues anticipated the weekend of August 5. We left early on Saturday morning and avoided some significant wiat time in traffic.
We loved the convenience to downtown Camden. We were able to walk to all services needed. The property was clean---we like the no pets no smoking feature. The property is well stocked with items needed---cooking, tv, dvd, etc...

I found the agency very thorough in every aspect of the process. We appreciated all the details about the property and area as well as updates on the rental process. We mistakenly forgot to call that we had checked in (!!!), but the person on the line was very nice when realized our mistake a day later.
All four of us loved the cottage! It is so homey and comfortable. The kitchen is so well equipped for any need although we did little cooking, but it was so nice to find brown sugar for our oatmeal and a variety of glasses for our beverages. The towels were fluffy, and with the convenience of a full-sized washer and dryer, we washed them several times as well as some of our clothes to repack.

On the Water in Maine was a pleasure to work with. They were professional, efficient and anticipated things that would help us make the trip smooth. I have rented with rental by owner agencies (VRBO and Air BnB) and this was so much better.
Great location, cute cottage. We could walk to town rather than driving and worrying about parking. but we were not in the middle of the busy town when we wanted to relax. Whoever decorated that place has a great eye; it could have been in a magazine, and had lots of lovely touches.

Experience excellent with On the Water in Maine. No problems, no complaints!
We stayed at the Captain's Cottage in Camden from July 9-16th. Very nice cottage that was clean and close to downtown. Love the large master bedroom and cozy, comfortable main floor. Cottage was clean and yard well taken care of. Even though we went at a very busy time, we did not have to wait for service at stores, for dining or at the harbor. Beautiful town, great food and people were extremely kind everywhere we went! Highly recommend this area!

On the Water in Maine was a well organized, detail oriented company. Professional in every way, and they provided plenty of information about the rental, the policies, and general instructions. Arranging for the rental was a seamless process.
The house met our needs perfectly for a 2 week stay in Camden. We were especially pleased with the large, bright master bedroom. All furniture was comfortable; plenty of lamps for good lighting; good, comfortable beds and very nice bedding. The location is good and within a short walking distance to the harbor. The cottage has a "cottage look" and dcor inside---very attractive.

On the Water in Maine was very easy to work with and answered all our questions and took care of all our needs quickly & efficiently. It seemed very strict in the beginning when booking the property but everything worked out well and we were happy with our choice of property.
The cottage was beautiful (even nicer than the pictures) and in a great location to walk to the harbor and great restaurants. The kitchen was well stocked with great cookware and good knives and everything you could need to create a fine meal. The cottage was decorated tastefully and had quality furnishings. We loved the new large deck and the backyard was like a little sanctuary.
