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.

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.

Great staff at On the Water in Maine Inc. Very timely and informative with all their communications.
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.

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.

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.

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.
