2 MASTER SUITES, 2.5 BATHS, SLEEPS 9 - SHORT WALK TO 7 MILES OF BEACH!

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!

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.

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.

VACATION TO REMEMBER

  • 5 of 5
We had a very relaxing, enjoyable stay at this lovely home. From the moment we pulled into the quaint, clean neighborhood until the minute we left we had nothing but positive experiences. As our stay in Maine occurred in September, we were fortunate to have beautiful weather and enjoyed the outdoors, but the home itself is so spacious and beautifully decorated inside that a few rainy days would have simply meant more “relaxing” in this home away from home. The open floor plan allowed us to enjoy each other’s company while one was making dinner or mixing that evening’s cocktail and the other relaxed by the T.V or at the counter/breakfast bar flipping through the welcome book that the owners put together to help suggest events/restaurants to hit the next day. We loved the little “reading nook” with the day bed tucked in the back of the house that was surrounded by natural light from both sides and filled with comfortable pillows – a great way to escape to that novel that you never have time to get to in your own home. Our daily routine included a morning cup of coffee on the master suite porch where the morning sun took the chill out of the brisk ocean air, then it was to off the beach for a morning walk. The beach is beautiful with miles to walk and plenty of opportunities to snap pictures along the way. While Saco is a beautiful place with plenty to offer, we made time to take day trips to Portland and Freeport to do some additional sightseeing and shopping as they were so easy to get to. At the recommendation of the owners, we stopped at Gritty’s one day for a great “pub” experience. We sat inside but there was seating outside where there was a huge grassed area where kids, couples, and even family pets were running around before dinner – a great family environment. If you love lobster or seafood, there is an abundance of restaurants that fit that need that are reasonably priced. After fun filled days, it was great to come “home” to all the amenities this vacation get-away had to offer. The bedrooms were spacious, comfortable and so tastefully decorated each with their own bathroom and plenty of storage for us “over packers”. This was a vacation to remember and a home you’ll never forget.

A GREAT WEEK!

  • 5 of 5
This house is perfect for a family with young children! The owners have put a great deal of thought into what a family may need during their beach weekend. There was even a wagon to help us cart our stuff the short way to the beach. The grassy side and back yards made outdoor play possible as well, with space enough for the children to run, swing and explore. It has a wonderful outdoor shower with hot/cold water. The indoor proves spacious and eclectic. There are hooks everywhere so there is no need to have a mess, as there is always a hook waiting to hold that towel, shirt, or bag. The bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of storage in the walk-in closets to stow away all of your bags and clothes. The master bedroom catches the morning sun where you can sip your morning tea/coffee on the balcony, and hear the ocean lull you to sleep at night. There are plenty of amenities in the house that make staying there a very pleasant experience, and while this was our first year staying at the Yellow House, it is certainly not our last!

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!
