We find On the Water in Maine to be efficient and responsive, should issues arise.
This property might not be for everyone. But we find it to be ideal for just the two of us, given its ideal location on a lesser known lake, the comfort of the furnishings, and the convenience of nearby Belfast, Lincolnville, and Camden. Leave your worries at home and come unwind at Piper Cove.

OWM has been a great rental partner for us. We have been pleased with the properties that they offer and how well everything is managed.
This was our 3rd year at Piper Cove. Great camp cabin with all the amenities for life on a lake in Maine with Internet, washer, dryer, etc. Cabin is well furnished and maintained. Cozy with two bedrooms and a main living area. Porch to the side. Cabin faces west and is right on the lake.

On the Water in Maine Inc. is just top notch. The process is organized, the communications are timely and complete, and everything is as close to effortless on out part as anyone could hope for.
This is the second year we have rented a cabin on Lake Quantabacook through On the Water in Maine, Inc. Of course the lake itself is a big favorite for us. The cabin we rented this year was very welcoming, everything we needed was ready for us to relax and enjoy our vacation. The outdoor table overlooking the lake was very nice, we ate there most nights enjoying the sunset.

We have rented from On The Water for many years and have always found the staff to be very responsive and helpful on the rare occasion we've had any issues. With the "minimum requirement" list for any of the properties, you can plan your stay and pretty much know what to bring with you and what to leave at home. We highly recommend working with On The Water for your vacation needs.
We enjoyed our stay at Piper Cove. The house was perfect for the two of us -- very clean, well furnished, and comfortable. The view of the lake can't be beat. The dock is handy, with a ladder over the side; this allowed us to easily get in and out of the canoe for as much fishing as we could get in! The fishing was pretty good and for the first time in many, many years of loon watching we got to see a loon on the nest and the next day, the parents swam by with two tiny, just-hatched chicks bobbing in the waves. It is an easy drive to Belfast or Camden.

We had a wonderful experience as always.
The only thing we missed at this cottage was a fireplace. But then as warm as it was we probably would not have used it. It was a perfect site with a perfect lake. My husband fished and fished. Catch and release. It was the challenge he loved. We felt like On Golden Pond. The loons even greeted us on our arrival.

This was a our third rental with On the Water in Maine and each experience has been excellent. On the Water in Maine delivers a well-appointed property and it is exactly as described. We will continue to rent from On the Water in Maine for this reason.
This was our second stay at Piper Cove. We returned because the camp is wonderful and the amenities are excellent. Beautiful lake with eagles, loons and views of the Milky Way at night. The cabin is well-appointed and has laundry which is definite plus. The dock on the lake faces south. If you enjoy seclusion with the ability to travel to the coast and Down East, you will enjoy Piper Cove.

This is our second rental with OtWiM and it was a great experience. The camp we had this time was much better furnished than the one we had in 2013 and I attribute this to OtWiM and what they expect from property owners. Justin was extremely helpful when we called with questions.
Piper Cove is well appointed and furnished Maine camp, and it has a washer and dryer. Right on the water on Quantibacook lake, facing West. Access to the lake is easy via the dock for swimming or boating. We had loons, a screech owl at night and even a pair of bald eagles. Outdoor dining at the table is convenient and we had no bugs. Great screened porch. The camp has recently been totally remodeled making it very comfortable. Internet worked well. The neighbors at the camp next door were great folks and very helpful. Convenient to Belfast, Camden and Bar Harbor.

Piper Cove is a lovely cottage. The owners have paid great attention to detail and the setting is beyond gorgeous. We've stayed on several different lakes in Maine, but this one is the nicest -- big enough to get a little lost in a kayak, quiet and peaceful.

Thanks to all the staff of On the Water in Maine for facilitating the entire rental process from beginning to end. Great communication in all aspects. You are a very pleasant group with which to work. You made everything so easy and provided us all the information we needed to fully enjoy the cottage and the surrounding area and activities. Ben's recommendations found in the guest binder helped create a couple of our fondest memories.
Piper Cove provided us a home away from home for the perfect vacation. Comfortable, clean, quiet and cozy, with all the amenities we needed, in a great location on the lake, where we enjoyed swimming, fishing, and kayaking. We particularly enjoyed the outside patio which provided a picturesque setting for many meals. Piper Cove is conveniently located so that all destinations we found of interest were an easy drive.

We stayed a Piper Cove last Summer for one week. It was everything you could ask for in a vacation. The accommodations were perfect. The view of the lake is the most tranquil beautiful view to wake up to every morning. It is still etched in my mind! The surrounding towns,the stores and market places are a delight to go to. Excellent restaurants and Lobster of course. we loved staying home and cooking as well. Piper Cove has all you need. We took a day trip to Arcadia National Park which was great and worth doing. Piper Cove was one of our best vacations!!!

Your agency is very easy to work with. Thanks!
This house is adorable, clean and very well appointed. The house is situated very close to the water, and the view is unbelievable. We enjoyed sitting on the dock all day long, but especially at sunset. Plus it was really cool to hear the loons at night and swim in the lake. I am super picky about where I stay (can't handle anything gross), and I will definitely be staying here again.
