Guestbook comments from the owner

Deborah's beach house is quaint, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the screened in porch. The bathroom is great and the bedrooms are cute and nicely decorated. Communicating with Deborah was easy when we had questions.

Beautiful cottage in relaxing Camp Ellis

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxing time staying here. We parked our car and didn't get back in it for a week. Everything was within walking distance so it was a truly relaxing vacation.

The lovely cottage was immaculate, cozy and comfortable. We were even allowed to bring our dog as long as she stayed on the first level which was not a problem at all.

Highly recommend this cottage, its suitable for everyone.

Thanks for a great stay Debra!

Quintessential Southern Maine Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The perfect escape from the busyness of Boston. What a sharp contrast. Camp Ellis was the perfect place to take a stroll and enjoy a quieter beach away from the Orchard Beach crowds. It was also central between Portland and Portsmouth. We could spend a day shopping in Kittery or head up to Cape Elizabeth or Portland to see the lighthouses; it was all within reach.

This cottage was actually larger than we had anticipated. Our group was four adults, one toddler, and one small dog. The living room allowed everyone to spread out and relax comfortably. The kitchen and bathroom are on the same floor, a great layout. We were all able to hang out in the kitchen and cook together, also wonderful to have the use of a gas stove. In the morning, we all sat on the screened porch and chatted over coffee. Overall, we highly recommend this cottage and Deborah was an excellent host who was available any time we needed to get in touch. Thanks Deborah, we look forward to our next visit!

Perfect for a relaxing beach vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was my first time renting in this area. I stayed here with my daughters there husbands and a small dog. We found Camp Ellis to be idyllic for a relaxing beach vacation. This cottage was in a perfect location just a five minute walk to the pet friendly neighborhood beach, the cottage was well equipped and comfortable. It had views of the Saco river from the master bedroom and porch. It has a small yard with picnic table and gas grille, plenty of off street parking. A nice local general store as well as a nice restaurant all within a five minute walk. Also a trolley that came in several times a day that you could ride for a 1 pp to old orchard beach. I would highly recommend this to a small family, a couple or a girls getaway only 30 minutes to old port and about 45-1 hour to Freeport for shopping!

Relaxing Little Get away

  • 4 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our short stay at the cottage. We will most likely be returning again in the future. The location is perfect and the fact that we could bring the dog was great!

Don't Overlook the Camp Ellis Cottage (Saco)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Camp Ellis Cottage in September and brought our small dog with us. The Cottage was very clean and cozy. It was fully furnished with everything that we needed. Evenings were very quiet and it was nice to be able to relax (and even hear the ocean)! The Cottage was within driving distance of many of the attractions that we were interested in including Portland. The weather was perfect. Deborah was very accommodating. She takes great pride in the Cottage as it is a very lovely place to stay. We plan on returning in 2016. We highly recommend this Camp Ellis Cottage.

Perfect place to for a New England visit

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I came to Southern Maine for a wedding. Staying at Deborah's cottage was an extra bonus for the trip! Camp Ellis and her cottage are exquisite. We were within walking distance of the water and the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. Although the October evenings were cool the cottage was comfortable and not cold at all. It is fully furnished with everything you need to feel at home. Deborah was gracious and helpful making our travel worry free and more enjoyable. This was an amazing find! We will definitely visit again.

Camp Ellis is a beautiful, peaceful village, perfect for relaxing, enjoying ocean walks, reading, and even dining. But if you're looking for more excitement, within very short driving distance you can reach Old Orchard Beach (10 min.) where you'll find entertainment, restaurants, pubs/clubs, golfing, and even a roller coaster and carnival rides. In a 25-min. drive you can be in beautiful, historic Portland known for wonderful food, shopping and site-seeing, or in Kennebunkport, summer home of George & Barbara Bush. There is so much to see along the coast of Maine, you simply won't have enough time to take it all in.
