About Sara Russell BSN RN
We are a professional couple who have two AWESOME adult children. Although we are spread across the U.S., we go to great lengths to spend time together and Russell Cove Cottage is the absolute best place to enjoy family time.
Sara Russell BSN RN purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Sara Russell BSN RN chose Camp Ellis
Our cottage is a great mix of quintessential coastal Maine, with its quirks and oddities as well as its shear beauty. We have made every effort to make this a place where families will cherish their time together and desire to return each year. It seems we have hit the right combination as families have made their summer vacation memories here for over a decade. Times change and children grow but Russell Cove Cottage is always there awaiting more memories.
What makes this Cottage unique
One way, quiet street close to the beach. Great yard, view, fire pit, picnic tables with umbrellas, and also a fun game room for entertainment opportunity should there be a day of inclement weather. Tons of great sightseeing within an hour (often much less) and the fun and excitement of Old Orchard Beach just a few miles down the road. Enjoy all the action and then come on back to Russell Cove Cottage and Camp Ellis for a family oriented evening. Or hang out for the whole day at the beach. We have everything you need to enjoy your day, and wheeled strollers to get your stuff back and forth.

Great Time Once Again
We've stayed at Russel Cove many times. Never had a bad experience with the exception of a windy day that took the picnic table umbrella for a "Mary Poppins" ride breaking one of the supports. My bad and the owners are very understanding and easy to work with. The house is not perfect but that is the charm and beauty that keeps us coming back. Read the history book of the house when you are there. It's a good read. The neighbors are all very friendly which adds to making it a great place to relax and enjoy your vacation time. You want be disappointed if you are looking for a little piece of old Mainer charm.
McCarthy Vacation 2019
We arrived in Maine with an extended family from a great Grandma to toddlers and found the house completely stocked with everything we needed for the week. The house is well designed with ample space for 8 and plenty of toys and games to keep everyone busy. Sara was accommodating and friendly and made sure we had everything thing we needed. We would not hesitate to book Russell’s cove again.
Thank you Alison - your family is welcome back anytime!
Wonderful Summer Vacation
The location of the house in Camp Ellis is perfect! You can walk to the beach within a minute, you have the little convenience store three houses away and a beautiful view of the harbor in your back back yard. The owner (Sara) keeps the house well stocked with towels, paper goods and ALL the beach necessities you could possibly need. (beach towels, chairs, toys, umbrellas). There is no need to bring a thing from home!
My kids particularly loved the game room in the house. Can't go wrong with having a fuse ball & and Ice hockey table in the house. There is so many things to do in the area: We road our bikes nearly everyday into town to get breakfast or an ice cream. We also played tennis a few times at Old Orchard Beach High School. We took our kids to the Drive-In for the first time and they loved it. There is also a beautiful Jedi you can walk too minutes from the house as well as a wonderful seafood restaurant called Huot's. The best part was walking down the street and buying lobsters and bringing them back to the house.
My family and I had a wonderful & memorable stay in Camp Ellis and would definitely come back and stay in Sara's home again.
Beautiful Spot to enjoy the best of the Maine coast
My family enjoyed the week we spent at Russell Cove Cottage. There was plenty of room for everyone to unwind whether it was inside, on the porch, outdoors by the river or enjoying the game room, a favorite for our son, and also the piano. It was nice to step off the front steps and see and smell the ocean each day. The beach was our favorite hangout and there was lots of takeout from Huot's also another family favorite. We would definitely consider renting next year.
Great for our family
This house was great for our group of 6 adults and 1 child. A couple more kids could have squeezed in easily. It was close to the beach, with lots of good beach toys and chairs available. The screened in porch got a lot of use as well. Thanks, Sara!
Thank you for trusting us to provide accommodations for your family's vacation! You are welcome back anytime :)
Really quaint and homey.
We stayed here two summers in a row and you can't beat it. The front porch is perfect for winding down from a day at the beach. The game room is awesome for the kids and the back yard fire pit became a spot where memories were made. To top it all, the Russell's are very thoughtful and considerate renters. You feel like guests. We wish we had found it when our kids were younger!
Camp Ellis is a beautiful, quaint coastal village in Saco with its own restaurants, lobster pounds, general store, deep sea fishing and whale watching excursions, kayak rental, and local artisans. Russell Cove Cottage sits on the harbor with glorious views of the cove and its resident lobster boats. In the morning, enjoy your coffee in the sunroom over-looking the passing sailboats, and in the evening visit outside around the fire pit before retiring to the air conditioned/heated comfort of the cottage. During the day, take a walk around the village, out onto the granite jetty, to the docks and along the beach.
Day trips are great opportunities for sight seeing and shopping expeditions. South to Kittery or North to Freeport for outlet shopping at its finest. Portland is a "can't miss'" with it's historic Old Port and working waterfront. You can window shop all day long and then dine onboard DiMillo's Floating Restaurant, or hit one of the many trendy or rustic pubs. Portland has whatever you are looking for.
Beautiful, calm and friendly - Camp Ellis awaits your visit - don't miss out!
