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 main level has a King bedroom and Queen Bedroom, and the walk out basement has two twin beds. Lermond Pond offers great fishing and recreation and the towns of Union, Camden, and Rockland are all within reasonable drive to get to shopping, dining, and sightseeing.
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 firepit. There is a designated game area for badminton, horse shoes, bocci balls, corn hole, and croquet.

It was very easy to rent with On The Water in Maine and they were excellent with communication and preparing us for our trip. I was also pleased with the cleaning service, which had everything ready for us when we arrived, including fresh cut flowers and the windows open to let in the breeze.
We loved everything about the house -- especially its serene location, cozy feel, and the fact that it was so well-appointed with everything we needed, from boats to bicycles to good-quality kitchen amenities. It is clear that the owners spend time here and love the home, and that they enjoy sharing it with renters.

No issues with property management, very easy to work with as a repeat guest!
This was our second stay at Our Song and it was just as lovely as the first! The home is beautifully decorated, and the kitchen is well stocked to make any meal you wish!
We loved using the provided kayaks and canoes, and swimming and fishing are great right off the dock.
The proximity to Camden (15-20 minutes is a bonus!)
Our favorite place to stay in Maine!

You have always been great, but this year was definitely the best. Everything was smooth. No issues. Thanks.
This house has one of the best and most relaxing views I have encountered in a vacation property. It's a small house, but it's perfect for a few people, especially a family with children. It's a smart house in terms of how it's configured and laid out. We will be back.

Kelsey started the fabulous vacation. I called and spoke with her about a year before our trip and described my family and what we have enjoyed about previous vacations. She took my description and recommended about 4 properties for me to consider. Since I was totally unfamiliar with the area, her advice was invaluable. I believe we would have been totally happy with either of the top 2 properties I ranked from her list.
This property was perfect for my family! We loved fishing, riding the canoe and kayaks and relaxing. The close proximity to Camden was wonderful for us, too.

Knowledgeable. Easy to work with.
Our Song on Lermond Pond was superb! The views from the living area, kitchen, dock, etc. were very soothing. We had to put our dog of 12 years to sleep midway through the vacation and it was the serenity of the cottage that got us through this tough time. Having the kayaks was fantastic! I paddled every day even when the weather threatened. Bathrooms were outstanding. Kitchen was the most well stocked kitchen I have even been in! It's location near everything made exploring very easy.

Over the past several years we have rented several properties from On The Water In Maine when we come to Maine to visit our son and his family.This year we decided on a fish camp since our grandson loves the water as much as we do. This property was perfect for us since it was on one of the cleanest lakes in Maine, included all of the water toys you could ask for, had a tree swing, fire pit, grill and beautiful view.

There's never been a better agency,
It's our second stay with "on the water" and we give you folks all our "Five Stars"
We arrived at the front door and knew instantly "this is where we wanted to be" and that feeling was so true the entire two week stay.
The children were immediately on the pier, there was a swim before even unoacking.
We remained near, upon, and in the water every day and sometimes all day.

On the Water in Maine is top notch. We've worked with them twice now and appreciate all the attention to detail. We also appreciate that the properties they represent are always charming, something we can count on!
We loved everything about Our Song. Lermond Pond is a lovely small lake, quiet and peaceful, and the house is located on a quiet dead end road. The cottage itself is charming with so many thoughtful details throughout: comfortable beds, equipped kitchen, lovely furnishings, the list goes on. We had some rainy days and sunny days--classic Maine vacation weather--but it didn't bother us as we were able to enjoy the inside (and nearby towns) on rainy days and the lake on sunny days. We met most of the friendly neighbors while we were there, and look forward to coming back!

We had no problems at all at check in or check out with On the Water in Maine. Ben was great to work with. They also where able to mail us left personal items back home to us.
Just like looms, location, location, location. One of our favorite features was definitely the pond, we couldn't stay off the water, from fishing to just sitting on the dock at nights. A huge plus for our family was all the supplies that we found in the home (spices, lobster dishes, bags, and foil) making it very convent to cook without having to think about the little things you might need.

We didn't rent through you, but we found your suggestions for day trips in the property book very useful -- really enjoyed the Young Lobster Pound as well as other restaurants you mentioned.
We stayed at Our Song for 6 days the end of September. It was a wonderful experience. We loved the cottage and the location -- we could enjoy the lake and peacefulness of the lakeside as well as easily reach all the interesting sites on the ocean. We lucked into gorgeous September weather which made kayaking and canoeing fun -- I even swam to the raft -- and had the added attraction of changing leaves. Everything about the cottage was 5 star. It is decorated beautifully down to the smallest detail -- but still very homey and comfortable. They have everything you could possibly want in terms of housewares (we enjoyed the barbecue as well) and in terms of outdoor equipment -- bikes, kayaks, a canoe, etc. Many different places to sit and hangout outdoors as well. I can't imagine a better way to enjoy Maine.
