Overview

Saco House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, 1 half Bathroom, Sleeps 8-9, Outside Shower

Our home is in an awesome location! We are 600' from Ferry beach & Camp Ellis beach and 600' from the Saco River, which is literally less than a 2 minute walk with a loaded wagon and children. Once there, the kids will play on boogie boards and wake boards all day. Need a potty trip, no problem; you're less than 2 minutes from home! Low tide is amazing! So much fun walking the beach and finding treasures; sea-glass, starfish, hermit crabs, moon snails, the list is endless. Relax and watch the children build sand castles while the sun keeps you warm and the day slips by, what a way to spend a day! When the day at the beach is over, drag the wagon back, toss the children in the outside shower, and your 'work' is done. Lobster from the local Lobster Pound (1 minute away) or burgers, or chicken on the grill with veggies and clean up is a breeze. Evenings are the best - walk the beach and harbor, rock on the front porch or relax and cook s'mores in the chiminea in our backyard.

You'll never want to go home! : Everything your family needs to have a priceless vacation is right here in Camp Ellis! We have provided what we could to make this inviting, comfortable and memorable. Take pictures! We Want you to Want to come back next summer. Go ahead, sit on the front porch in a rocker with a 'cold one.' Watch the fog roll in, smell the ocean, hear the water lap the sand and listen to your children laugh. That's why year after year, families keep coming back! Experience it, and you will too!

Sweet Summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great stay for our family. We had 6 adults and 2 kids and they house never felt cramped or crowded. We found everything that we could possibly need for the week stocked and readily on hand. The proximity to the beach was awesome as we could come and go as we pleased. The small community of Camp Ellis is also very charming. We took several day trips, but always ended up back on the front porch to enjoy the evening.

Fantastic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4, 2 young children and 2 adults. We had a fantastic stay in this very welcoming and extremely well situated house. The renters are very kind on giving information, the house was well equipped and we really enjoyed our stay there.

Fantastic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I have been staying in Camp Ellis for many years since my parents own a house there. Our family has gotten so big that, this year, we decided to rent. Rick and Karen's house was perfect! It is so clean and well laid out. Our family of two adults and two children had room to spare. We've already decided to stay again next year! In addition, Rick and Karen were so nice to deal with and made our stay so enjoyable!

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in the Ferry Beach area for the past 7 years as it is one of our favorite places to go in the summer. Our prior rental house was "adequate", but this house was perfect in every way. The house has a wonderful "beach" charm, and is very tastefully decorated. It is very well appointed, has a beautifully renovated kitchen (great for those who love to cook!), a nice, open living area and 2 master bedrooms on the second floor. Since we were renting with another couple, it was absolutely ideal. The front porch became a favorite place for us to sit and have coffee in the morning, and greet fellow vacationers as they were heading to the beach. The owner was wonderful to deal with in terms of communication, prompt in replying to my email messages, and also very friendly. I would highly recommend this lovely home to anyone visiting the area. We look forward to renting it again next summer!

Beautiful house, gorgeous beach. We'll be back.

  • 5 of 5

My family (4 adults +1 child) had a wonderful vacation here. The house is adorable, just like the photos, very well kept, and fully stocked with amenities. Every day we'd load up the wagon with beach toys, chairs, an umbrella (all provided) and my 18-month-old son and walk the short distance to Camp Ellis or Ferry Beach. The beach was very clean with a gentle tide, perfect for young children. The house is perfectly situated to make day trips to nearby towns like Kennebunkport, Ogunquit, Old Orchard Beach, York, and Portland.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time the last week of June staying at the saco maine beach house. It had all the amenities and is very kid friendly. Everything listed was provided and then some. The house was organized, clean and well maintained. The owner was very prompt in all communications and very helpful. The beach is perfect for young children and for beach combing. For a relaxing low stress vacation, I would highly recommend a stay here.

Notes:
Later, s'mores in the chiminea and very tired children! You can buy lobsters, fresh or Cooked from the 'Lobstah Pound' in Camp Ellis. A bit about our home: it was newly remodeled in 2003 and is bright, spacious, beautifully decorated and appointed with just about every amenity! It now includes 2 master suites with private full baths on the 2nd floor and an open concept 1st floor with a new kitchen and an 8ft tiled counter/breakfast bar, downdraft gas cooktop and gas oven. There is a half bath and laundry room on the first floor complete with a laundry sink. We have knotty pine ceilings & walls and hard wood floors throughout - no carpets! The 1st floor is an open design, 'great room' effect. One of the of the nicest features is the large semi-private backyard with gas grill, picnic table, deck on the back of the house and the enclosed outdoor hot and cold shower! We love it here and think you will too!
