About Deborah Napier

I own 3 rental properties in Southern Maine and I am also an Airbnb host. I have been in the property rental business for more than 15 years and I get high reviews on my properties, both as a place to rent and as a landlord. I enjoy being a landlord, meeting new people, and also enjoy making people happy. I take great pride in providing beautiful, restful, clean, and relaxing rentals, and I personally LOVE staying at my beach cottage in Camp Ellis and I think you will, too. I don't recall anyone ever sating they have not enjoyed staying at the cottage and I'd love to have you join the ranks!

What makes this cottage unique

Close to the beach, the river, restaurants, yet quiet, peaceful, and staying here makes you feel as though you've taken a step backwards in time! Sweet neighborhood location away from the traffic and noise. You'll have a wonderfully peaceful vacation here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had a great weekend at Deborah's place for the weekend! The location was very peaceful, quiet, clean and everything I could ask for! Prior to arrival, Deborah emailed us right away with arrival instructions and clear expectations of what she would like of the guests. Place was very clean and filled with activities not too far from the house. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends and definitely planning to come back!

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!

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.

Absolutely Lovely Cottage and Host

  • 5 of 5

What can I say! My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful time. We cooked meals, took walks near the water, completed the partially finished puzzle that has been started by previous guests, and relaxed. I'm a light sleeper but had no trouble sleeping on the beds, and the neighborhood was quiet all through the night - and through the days, too!

Our transactions with the owner, Deborah were seamless and she was so helpful and gracious. The home was fully furnished, and everything we needed to cook meals was available in the kitchen. I'm so glad we found this place - a total gem.

Car: necessary

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.
