Cozy and clean, this "Little House" is a dream.

  • 5 of 5

You can't ask for more when staying at this adorable cottage in Camp Ellis, Maine. The cottage is immaculately clean and has all of the amenities of home right at your finger tips. Even our dachshund loves to roam the streets and visit the beach. The beach is small but quaint, where every year we meet new friends. Grabbing coffee each morning from Camp Ellis General Store and sitting on the jetty quickly became our favorite morning activity. The trolly that runs continually throughout the day makes travel convenient to Old Orchard Beach. This place is a must -visit and has become part of our annual summer vacations. We can't wait to return next summer.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoy the cottage as much as we do. Look forward to hearing about your annual summer visits. You are booked for 2018! Although we, too, enjoy the Camp Ellis General Store, you have to check out the new shop at the top of Beach Road CIA (Coffee, Ice Cream, and Art) with great pastries and sandwiches also!

Charming and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about Lil House. We stayed here for the Memorial Day weekend with our 2 dogs and it was amazing. It was so nice to be right by the little beach. My family met us for a delicious seafood dinner at Huot's reataurant rigjt down the street, which was really convenient. Right near Ferry Beach State park, where we hiked with the dogs and only a few miles from OOB.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time! We love it when others enjoy the cottage as much as we do. And we find that renters with well loved and well behaved dogs appreciate being able to bring their fury family members along.

Lil House - Charming Cottage By the Sea

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a cozy little, well kept cottage, than this is the place for you. We just loved it! It was actually nice to rent a place that was exactly as described in the listing. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would not hesitate to stay there again. I think our seven year old granddaughter said it best, "Mammy, this is the prettiest little house ever!" (BTW, if you like seafood - Huot's, less than a block away, is the very best!)
