Working with On the Water in Maine was great. The automated messages for the initial rental and access (later) of the property were very informative. Similarly, the information provided upon arrival to the property had everything we needed. When communicating directly via email, response time felt a little delayed (~24-48 hours) but that's because we live in an era where we (unreasonably) expect immediate responses for everything :).
The house was so cozy. The beds were just as comfortable as those we have at home. And, the house was warm. The first 2 days we were there it was cold/rainy so it was so nice to have a nice warm home to read, relax, play games in.
On top of the coziness, we loved the location in Lincolnville, the proximity to the ocean (the ramp to the rocky shoreline was an unexpected plus - i thought it was a steep embankment) and the pool was also a huge hit. The children used the pool multiple times a day regardless of what the weather was doing.

A pleasant and seamless experience working with OTW. We had a couple of questions during our stay and everything was taken care of right away.
We were absolutely thrilled with Penobscot View! The house was nicely appointed and very comfortable for our party of 7 (including my 88 yr.old mother) We loved the unobstructed view, the expansive lawn area, pool, and the graveled ramp down to the beach. It was like our own private resort!

We had a few issues, including the PIN code for the door being incorrect and your agency was great about solving them - even on a Saturday!
We loved the view! Every afternoon was spent out front reading and just relaxing and watching the ferry go by. We had a power outage and the fact there was a generator was fantastic! It even got so cold we needed to turn on the fireplace. Overall it was an amazing stay.

Your agency was extremely efficient and met our needs in various ways.
The house is spacious with fabulous views of the ocean, yet the property is secluded and private.
The pool was such a bonus having a 10 and 12 year old with us, and the path to the beach along with the rocky shore made for great exploring.
The house layout was perfect for our family and the master bedroom was quite luxurious.

Very accommodating. Liked the check-in process with a door code instead of having to go to the rental agency to get keys. The entire process is electronic which makes everything so easy. All points of contact were professional and very friendly.
What a beautiful property! It actually is more beautiful than the pictures. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need, including sharp knives. It is very nicely decorated. The views from the house overlooking the ocean are spectacular.

On the Water in Maine was wonderful and easy to work with.
The property and view were lovely and accommodating. Close to downtown Lincolnville and Camden.
Amazing water views! Rocky beach below not very usable however. Having the pool on site was a redeeming quality and the sandy beach downtown was a short walk down the driveway.

Nice, friendly staff. Justin was super to deal with.
Beautiful property and view. Photos depict the house exactly as it is. Kitchen was very well stocked with everything you need. Grill worked great. Some doors stick and are hard to lock but we figured it out. We would highly recommend this property. More seating in living room would be nice because more than 5 people (and that's a stretch as it is) cannot all fit at once.

We have worked with you (On the Water in Maine) many times and have had only the most professionsal experience in our relationship. Along with the professionalism comes the local flavor of good old Maine warmth and support.
We loved the house. We had small kids with us given that my daughter and family were sharing the house with us. The space was perfect for this arrangement. The floor plan on the first floor offered plenty of space, along with the yard with an amazing view of the bay. The seperate suite upstairs made this perfect for the "older" folks. Having Lincolnville within walking distance was perfect.
