Our charming cottage by the sea, located in a cottage community known as 'Camp Ellis', is our home away from home and we are sure you will feel the same. Enjoy your morning coffee from our second floor deck with an ocean view. The cottage is fully equipped with a full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, LCD/TV and DVD. It is heated and available for rental year round. We are just steps to the beach, a working fishing pier, deep sea fishing charters, kayak rentals and local pottery. Corner beach store within walking distance. Fresh lobsters are readily available. The cottage is just a few miles off the highway, yet you will feel like you're a world away. There are three local restaurants, one year-round, with-in walking distance and plenty more choices in town. Take advantage of local antiquing and outlet shopping.
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!)
Once again the perfect vacation.It's so nice knowing that
after a long drive all you have to do is relax for the next week.
The house is always clean and welcoming...The weather was perfect so every day was a great beach day..Camp ellis is a magical place.The people are friendly and more than willing
to make sure your vacation is the best...If you are looking for the
perfect place to unwind and read a few good books this is the
spot...I will be coming back next year and with any luck many years to come.
Lil' House was a great cottage in a great location! We found the cottage very neat and tidy with all the comforts of home: refrigerator, stove/oven, fully stocked kitchen cabinets (you won't have to bring a thing!), flat screen satellite television, D.V.D. player, ceiling fans in each room, large bathroom, and plenty of room throughout. Outside there was a small brick patio with a table/chairs/umbrella, gas grill, a small flower garden....plus room enough to park two cars.
Lil' House comfortably accommodated three adults, two children, and two Boston Terriers very comfortably. We especailly enjoyed the small roof-top deck which provided a fantastic view of the ocean. It was the perfect spot to have our morning coffee/breakfast.
Within walking distance there was a small convience store, a take-out restaurant, a sit-down restaurant, and a small pottery studio.
Camp Ellis Beach was a two minute stroll from Lil' House. The beach was never crowed (not even on July 4th), pet friendly, had little to no seaweed, had a soft sandy bottom and gentle surf....perfect for young children!
The owner was easily accessable. I emailed a few questions prior to our stay and I got responses right away.
I would recommend Lil' House to anyone looking for a charming cottage close to the beach. I've already made my reservation for next year!
What first strikes is the scent of balsam pine, and the cleanness and high quality of the furniture and construction, from the door lock through to the faucets. Prettyly decorated, thouroughly equiped and well documented. Caring owners. 3 restaurants and 1 general store at a walking distance. If a quiet neighbourhood and a beach closeby is what you're looking for, this is the place. You have to try the pizza at the General Store !
we love this cottage, even more so now, after the renovations. we love looking at the ocean from the deck. everything is in perfect condition and very clean. the beach is steps away, and our dogs love to run on the beach. camp ellis is fairly quiet, and we had a most relaxing vacation. we will return!
