Rooted in a strong connection to the area, family tradition, and a love for lakeside relaxation and stewardship, this cottage was purpose built for family enjoyment and fun. Newly finished in 2014 and decorated with comfortable furnishings and decor offering a step up in quality from the average lake cottage. Refinements such as the glass tile shower with river rock floor to massage your feet, the custom kitchen ready to prepare any meal, or the comfortable king bed with water views will leave you feeling pampered and relaxed. Guests will also enjoy the Sonos wireless sound system, gas grill and beautiful views of the water from nearly every room.
Swimming is great off the dock and there is a swim float in deeper water as well. The new BOTE air dock makes launching boats easy!

In 2016, a new bathroom was built in the lower level that is reminiscent of a spa. It features a deep relaxing bath tub. Outside there is a new smokeless firepit. There is a designated game area for badminton, horse shoes, bocci balls, corn hole, and croquet. Indoors there is a ping pong table.

For the second straight year, we had a great experience working with On the Water in Maine. Any questions I had about booking, check-in, or the general area were answered promptly and completely. We experienced no glitches whatsoever; the whole process could not have been easier.
The house and the grounds are beautiful and lovingly maintained. The lake is everything you'd want from a Maine lake: crystal clear water, woodsy surroundings, and of course a family of loons. Everything that was provided (a lot!) was in great condition...boats and tubes, lakeside seating, kitchen stuff, games, etc. I enjoyed feeding the birds during our stay, and watching and listening to them and the bees buzzing in the hydrangeas. The grounds overall provided a place for everything from corn hole to campfires to stargazing. It was everything we could possibly want.

There were too many 'favorite' features to highlight! I rented it mainly for the swimming and the swim mat off the float was a big hit for my grandchildren. They also loved learning how to play ping pong and the swinging on the big swing in the tree. My husband and I loved exploring the pond in the canoe. I baked a cake without wanting or needing to improvise any utensils. There were oodles of beach towels; usually I need to bring my own.
The house was so well equipped and so lovely to stay in!

The entire booking/check-in process was seamless. Very easy from start to finish. We simply couldn't have ask for a better stay. I have already shared the On the Water in Maine website with my friends on Facebook.
We absolutely loved staying in Our Song! The kitchen was so well stocked, that it was very easy to make ANY meal you desired. We also loved the view from the living room, as well as sitting on the dock. The ping pong table came in handy on the one day of solid rain that we had during out stay. As silly as it sounds, we enjoyed feed the chipmunks on the side porch in the evening while sipping our wine! It was a perfect, and VERY relaxing, stay!

Paige and all the group were wonderful. She took the time to provide her local knowledge and was able to help us find some local spots to go that were not on the tourist radar. Paige answered all of my questions and said to call her any time we had questions or needed some other guidance.
Thoughtful owner that truly cared about her guests wellbeing and wanted to make sure they had all they needed for an enjoyable stay. Of course the view was beautiful and the place was very secluded.

Our Song was a great Christmas and New Year's treat! The view of the water, which you enjoy while your'e cooking and lounging, was amazingly beautiful. A full moon danced on the water for us on New Year's Eve. We enjoyed the ping pong, firepit, great kitchen supplies, dishwasher, gas woodstove, spa bathrooms, washer/dryer, soaps, and easy access to Camden. Highly recommend hiking Spruce mountain (cresting 3 mountain peaks with views of Atlantic ocean) off hwy 17 and Tanglewood River trail along the Ducktrap river. Stephanie made it festive with her charming holiday decorations. Pick up Long Grain for dinner one night.

This is our second time using On the Water in Maine and we were not disappointed. The staff was extremely helpful in keeping us informed with respect to accommodations relating to the pandemic.
Our time at Our Song was outstanding. The most relaxing vacation I have ever had. In the midst of the pandemic after 3 months of remote learning with my kids while simultaneously working from home, we needed this vacation badly. We spent our time swimming in the gorgeous water of the lake, playing ping pong and board games, and cooking. The kids watched Netflix in their space in the basement after swimming and did their own thing while we listened to music on the Sonos and read. We went nowhere but the grocery store. The beds were extremely comfortable and the room in the Master bedroom can't be beat. The shower and tub were both wonderful. We can't wait to come back.

We stayed at Our Song September 28th to October 12th 2019. The house was fantastic. It was very clean extremely well stocked and supplied. The view of Lermond Pond was wonderful and early morning coffee on the dock was a wonderful way to start the day. The owners definitely put thought into making this a quality rental. The location to mid-costal Maine is the best.

We have rented through On the Water in Maine for a number of years and our experience has been excellent with them. We have rented three different properties and all have been at a high standard and with everything in working order.
Our Song is a wonderful property. It is on Lermond Pond which is quiet except for the loons and ducks which we enjoyed. At night, stars abound and viewing of the milky way is possible. The cabin/camp extremely well appointed with every amenity. A bonus was the inclusion of kayaks and a canoe with the property. Fairly easy to get to the coast for visits to Acadia, Blue Hill and Pemaquid Point.
