Lots and lots of sanddollars on the beach across the street. I never found one before in my life, until now. Kids loved our stay Thanks for the memories Keith, Melissa, Jake, Savannah, Ryan Gianna Mattet
I have enjoyed coming here for the last five summers and will be back again in 2017. The first year we had 7 of us (5 adults and 2 children), and we were all comfortable. Subsequent years have been either four or five of us. It has become an annual trip for myself and grandchildren. We have never been disappointed. Each year, I dream about the next visit. It rejuvenates me.
I don’t even know where to begin about why we love the Blue Pearl so much. Maybe it is the view, maybe it is the quiet, maybe it is the beach, or the lobsters. Whatever it is, we love it and keep coming back.
Sharon is wonderful to work with and is quick to reply to emails and answer questions. The cottage is exceptionally well-maintained. The location is practically perfect with ementies available at the General Store and a major grocery store a short drive away. And of course, there is the beach! The beach is amazing with incredible sunrises and sunsets. (Be prepared to be awoken in awe if you are sleeping on the futons.) My grandkids are on the beach most days for the entire day. We also love to go back at sunset and walk the shoreline.
The cottage kitchen is stocked with most common appliances, dishes, pots and pans, etc. The directions are easy to find if you are unfamiliar with a particular appliance. There are also toys and chairs for the beach. As others have said, there are plenty of pamphlets available to see what is in the area.
If it is rainy and you are inside, you still get to enjoy watching the beach or playing games or cards around the table while watching the rain. It is always a treasure to be at the Blue Pearl.
The pictures are accurate as is the description. Do think about the top bunk if you are planning on renting for seven adults or adults and teens. However, the large futon could sleep 2.
I am so glad that I found the Blue Pearl. It has brought me and my family tremendous joy. We have made so many wonderful memories there.
I LOVED the Blue Pearl Cottage and would definitely stay there again!! It was exactly as described in the listing and Sharon supplied everything we could ever possibly need to accommodate our stay including a very sweet welcome package that provided us with a travel mug and some laundry detergent as well as a mini-cooler lunch container. The view alone every morning looking out at the ocean was the best part, and being in easy walking distance of the local beach was perfect. The window seat was the BEST!!!! Everything was clean, there were directions on the fridge for everything and there were pamphlets for local attractions and contact numbers readily available. Sharon and her husband were ready with the few quick questions I had; they were very responsive. I cannot say how much I love the village of Camp Ellis. It was my second year staying there and I just adore it! I plan to come back every year!
The only drawback I found was the bunk bed. If you have kids it is perfect. I was staying there with my friend and her husband and was hoping maybe to have another friend come down for a few days, but once I saw the bunk bed I realized that top bunk is really not intended for adults. So that was really the only thing that could have made it a little better would be maybe a trundle bed or 2 twin beds, but there's very little room on the top bunk for a regular adult. But it really looks like it is mostly set up for kids anyway.
Overall it was a great week, a great location and a very relaxing time and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great, relaxing cottage at the beach.
Thanks so much,
A marvelous ocean view from the front windows of this charming cottage was the perfect way to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. The cottage was well maintained, clean, comfortable, cozy and located a stones throw from the beach. Sharon was wonderful to provide us with answers to many questions about local sites and happenings as it had been 28 years since our last vacation in Camp Ellis. The sunrises were breathtaking and low tide provided many treasures to be found and long walks to enjoy. Looking forward to renting again and again in the years to come. Thank you for sharing your home with my family and allowing us to bring many fond memories to life once again.

It was BETTER than GREAT!!
Thank you so much for letting my family from Oklahoma stay at the cottage this last week! We could not have asked for a better time with my daughter, her husband, and the two young boys.
The cottage was almost equal distance from both sets of in laws which made it very easy to see them and leave them during the day. We went whale watching, went to Palace Play Land, and into Portland a could of times but most of the time we spent playing on the beach... something very different than the flatlands of OK.
The cottage was much more than described and included everything that was needed. The washer and dryer was very much appreciated as the kids could keep their clothes clean after playing in the sand or getting their ice cream from the general store each day before breakfast.
I hope that your housekeeper reported we left the cottage as we found it. We tried very hard to treat everything as if it was our own with the hopes that the next family renting it would also appreciate their stay.
Hope that rest of the summer stays sunny and warm for you and your renters just like the days we experienced.
The cottage is a small, modest accommodation close to the beach with a view. Although it says it will sleep 7, we three adults felt at capacity. The main bed was comfortable for two, but sleeping on the full size (lower) bunk mattress was intolerable; I had to move out to the living area and use the futon - which is not a bed noted for great comfort. The bunk mattress is thin, no box spring or topper and I could feel each metal slat of the bunk frame. Kids might not mind this, but it is not for an adult. The kitchen had all the small appliances we needed.
This is the first beach cottage I have rented that charged for providing linens and paper products. We brought our own, but that was a hassle and the weekly rental fee was high enough, plus a cleaning fee, to have covered those amenities.
The local restaurants (walking distance) were fair at best and the small general store was no better. Be sure to bring what you need or plan to go to the large store on the main highway into town. We drove to several of the Audubon wildlife areas for interesting walks after local beach strolls. Old Orchard Beach amusement park is for folks who can tolerate tacky.
Lastly, you will note that in the property photos on the web site there are none of the building exterior. We missed having a comfortable porch to sit outside and eat, read, talk, play, etc. The entry 'porch' of the cottage is not set up for much use - it's more of a place to take off sandy shoes.
We have enjoyed our STAYS at both the Blue Pearl and ClamShell numerous times. After many searches and other stays in this area, this home away from home hits the mark. Spectacullar view of the ocean just a few feet away condones a great read on the window bench. Great ammennties too. We have stayed at the Pearl during spring, fall, and winter. Peace and solitude for walks,relaxarion, and to destress. We are happy reapeat renters for about 6 years. You may inquire as to why a belated review . . . .we guess we wanted to keep this oyster to ourselves.
The only flaw is the raised master bed resulting in difficulty getting in/out
