You can have a great vacation even in this economy! Do less shopping/packing and let us save you a lot of money on all of the extras provided. Ask me for details! Our vacationers can't believe how far we go to stock the cottage with anything and everything. Russell Cove Cottage has been updated with all the modern conveniences while preserving its authentic flavor and history. We have an absolutely gorgeous view of the harbor, relax with a cool drink while you watch the lobster boats bring home dinner! We are a mere one minute stroll to the beach - you can spend the day and still be close to the conveniences of the cottage - super important while with children. We have both a great yard and a wonderful game room with foosball, arcade basketball, air hockey and TV/DVD. Our village boasts gift shops, restaurants, general store, artist studio, etc. Kayak rentals, deep sea fishing and whale watches available just down the street. As if that is not enough, Old Orchard Beach is only 4 miles.
Further details: Striper fishing is great! Enjoy ice cream and gift shopping. Lobster available cooked or uncooked right around the corner. Sit on the wrap around porch greeting old friends and new as they make their way to 7 miles of beautiful beach. Or relax in the sun-room and look across the harbor as the lobster men bring home your dinner! Generations of families return year after year for the great atmosphere and fun of a true Maine ocean village.

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 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 a floating restaurant.
Beautiful, calm and friendly - Camp Ellis awaits your visit - don't miss out!
