As always, we enjoyed working with Tiffany and everybody at On the Water in Maine.
The house and garden are beautiful. We loved the fireplace and the big table in the living room (big enough to hold large board games).

Very efficient.timely and thorough!
We loved the view and proximity ( walking distance) to the lobster docks and the General Store in Owls Head. We like the layout of the house with the two bedrooms and bath and a sitting room upstairs in addition to the downstairs area.We would love to see a bigger more comfortable sofa in the downstairs living room area and the removal of the very large coffee table as it makes it more difficult to enjoy sitting in that area. We love the beautiful antiques and coziness of the property.

The staff is always courteous and responsive. The property is well managed, well kept and updates are made every year. They listen to their guests and do an outstanding job of attending to their needs. Renting through them is efficient, informative and highly organized. They have an outstanding website that is easy to navigate and contains all the information needed to decide on a property to rent.
We return to Juniper Bank year after year because the house is large, comfortable and is equipped with all the necessities of modern living. The view of the water, islands and Owls Head harbor is our favorite feature of the house. It is also convenient to Rockland and all the boating, entertainment, restaurants, art galleries, walking trails, etc. the area has to offer.

I have been renting properties in Mid Coast Maine for many years through On The Water in Maine. This is a top shelf operation with wonderful rental properties and staff. The check in and check out are quick and easy and they provide great directions to the rental property. Thanks for a seamless vacation.
Juniper Banks is a beautiful property with great landscaping, flower gardens and a well built fire pit with plenty of deck and outside seating. There is a mowed path with a rope guide going down to the water where the children searched for sea glass and rocks. It is close to Rockland and numerous restaurants as well as a short walk to the Owls Head Store and Owls Head Light House which we hiked in the early morning with not another person in sight. The living accommodations were spacious and homey with 3 levels,2 separate living rooms, a well equipped kitchen and ocean views from all floors and 2 of the 3 bedrooms. We look forward to returning next year.

Working with OTWIM continues to be a no-lose experience because of how well the whole process, from e-checks to check-in, has been perfected.
We love the view out over the water to Monroe Island, whether from the deck or the upstairs living room and bedroom. Believe it or not, we enjoy hearing the lobster boats moving out, beginning about 4:45 a.m.! Besides being well-appointed, Juniper Bank is ideally situated for many day trips in the mid-coast region. These are the features we like best about the property.

This property is ideal for sunrise. There are unobstructed views of the sun from the deck with a beautiful pink and orange sky. The property is quite large, with three living spaces (one on each floor), three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a good size kitchen. The kitchen is also well equipped with little gadgets not found at some other properties. The lawn isn't so idea for sunbathing or running around as it is for meandering, it's quite sloped and the large side is out front. The flowers are lovely though and the fire pit is nice. The house floor plan is a bit odd, with lots of doors since you go around and around in a circle on both floors. The disorientation fades though. I imagine they will work on the sulphur taste of the water, but if not bottled is suggested. Also the yard doesn't have lounge chairs so bringing those would be suggested.

On the Water in Maine is never a disappointment. The description of the cottages have always been accurate and up to date.
House was lovely, well appointed and very clean. We did rent kayaks from On the Water in Maine and they delivered them to the house. It was a hike to put the kayaks in the water, but we found ourselves only heading to the water at high tide - which was fine. Carrying a kayak over the rocks can be dicey when the tides are lower.

This is a very nice rental property with lots to recommend it.

Excellent in every way! I'd hate to rent from anyone else than On the Water in Maine
We had an absolutely perfect week at Juniper Bank. The lupines were in bloom and every day was clear and sunny. We loved the views from the house - the best of all the rentals we've had - and the easy access to the water was a big plus. We spent hours hunting sea glass as we watched the lobster boats motor to and from Owls Head harbor, just around the bend. The house itself is beautifully decorated and the rooms are bright and sunny. We also enjoyed all of the original artwork on the walls.
