Best location ever

  • 5 of 5

This was my 4th year renting this beach house. It sits right across the street from the beach. There's a nice deck with a table and chairs that overloooks the water. The house is clean and well stocked. There is a lot to do in the surrounding areas. The little village of Camp Ellis is very quiet and serene. The owner Robert is very easy to contact.

We loved our stay at Chowders Retreat

  • 4 of 5

First off I would like to mention what a pleasure it was dealing with Robert the owner. We had a couple of requests before our stay of which he was very accommodating.

The house itself is wonderful; directly across from the neighborhood beach in Camp Ellis with unbelievable views out of the windows and sliders and outside deck. The sunrises were spectacular! There is no parking for the beach, so even at its most busy it is not overwhelmingly crowded. The sleeping accommodations were comfortable. The sound of the waves crashing on the beach at night is just wonderful. We walked the Saco Jetty several times to watch the sunsets.

The location is within 30 minutes of Portland, Old Orchard Beach, Kennebunkport, etc. so there is lots to do besides sun on the beach. We also ate a meal at Huot's Seafood restaurant, a 2 minute walk away, which was great. The Camp Ellis general Store, also a 2 minute walk, was charming (the breakfast area there was being renovated and should be finished by the end of July). Bigger grocery stores were about a 10 minute drive.

The only caveats I would mention is that the road next to the house was a little busier than I expected. It is the only way in and out of the harbor at Camp Ellis so there is quite a bit of traffic. The upside is the deck railing has a nice covering of flowers and provides privacy. Another thing to watch for is the stairs leading up to the kitchen; the treads are a little narrow so watch your step loading in and loading out! (The stairs to the deck look new and were comfortable to use)

Overall I would rate our stay as extremely enjoyable and relaxing. We will be coming back next year for sure.

Very pretty location. A lovely quiet street with houses feet from the water.

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful experience at Robert's beach cottage. It was perfect, exactly what I was looking for. Very clean, had all the amenities, and the view was spot on. When we arrived Friday night there was a storm rolling in and we could see all the waves breaking on the rocks only 50' from the porch....incredible. I would recommend this place to any family or private weekend. I am planning on booking again next year.

Beautiful view!

We stayed in mid-October and it was perfect! Although a little chilly some days, it was quiet and peaceful- listening to the ocean waves from the deck was a highlight! Would highly recommend this property!
