Professional, clear communication
It's been 2 years since we've been back to Piper Cove Cottage and the cottage looked exactly the same. We were impressed with how everything had been taken such good care of and was in great shape. We love the outdoor space around the cabin: the hammock, firepit, grill, dock and lounge chairs. This adds a wonderful additional living space to our experience.

I found the team to be very friendly and responsive to all of our questions.
We were VERY pleased with the cleanliness of the cottage. It was our biggest concern when committing to the cottage online. It's a small cottage. But, good for two people. We liked that it was close to the water. And it was very clean.

On The Water staff are efficient and thorough. Whenever we have had an issue in an OTW property (which has been rare), it has been resolved satisfactorily.
This was our third stay at Piper Cove and we always find it perfectly suitable for just the two of us. All amenities are provided and the cleaners do a decent job of preparing the property for our visit. The favorite thing about this property is its location -- proximity to the water and an outstanding view.

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.

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.
