Beachfront with beautiful private sandy beach, a deck and screened porch
Hi, i'm Georgia. My sisters and I started renting out this house for summer weeks beginning in 2013. Two of us live nearby to manage the property.
Georgia purchased this House in 1982
Why Georgia chose Saco
I hope you love this place as much as we do. Our family has been enjoying this Saco beach for generations, creating lifelong memories.
What makes this House unique
This house is right at the center of such natural beauty! Looking out to the ocean, Eagle Island is offshore directly in front of the house. (Superb sunrise vantage point right from the house!) Walk out the back door down the driveway and cross the road and you are in the wooded beauty of Ferry Beach State Park with lovely nature trails. You also have the Saco River and the fishing pier in tiny Camp Ellis less than a mile to the south, where you can view stunning sunsets.

Cottage right on the beach
We stayed a week at this lovely little cottage right on the beach of Saco Bay. The cottage itself is very nice, with a simple but well-equipped kitchen, a screened porch, and a deck a few feet from the beach. The outdoor shower and clotheslines make it easy to keep the sand outside. The beach is gorgeous. You can walk to Camp Ellis and Old Orchard Beach along the sand (though there is a small stream to cross on the way to OOB).
We had a wonderful week and plan to return sometime!
Things to be aware of:
- There is a washer but no dryer, so laundry is a bit slower-paced than what most of us are used to.
- The amount of seaweed on the beach varies from day to day. Most days it was just fine. On seaweedy days, it was worth walking five minutes down the beach to a cleaner spot.
- Bugs come out at night, so sitting on the deck after dark is no fun (but the screened porch is great).
Fantastic Beach Property
We absolutely loved this property and plan on returning. Beautiful beach right outside the back door- could not ask for better access.
Classic Maine beach cottage
This was a great property—classic Maine beach cottage. Not a modern property. We enjoyed sleeping with open windows. Box fans were provided. Great section of beach.
Family of five
This was the second time my family rented this cottage on the beach. It feels like a home away from home for us. There is nothing better than having a private beach right out the back door. We enjoyed meals on the beachside deck, the spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and the quiet privacy this cottage provides. The location is peaceful and serene, but not remote. There is plenty to do and see locally if you manage to rally yourself from the beach. Clean, comfortable, quiet, and beautiful. What more could you hope for in a vacation rental? The owner is friendly and accommodating as well. A little slice of beach heaven!
We really had a great time in this peaceful, perfectly located cottage. Great views from the fabulous porch and great beachcombing at low tide. Listening to the waves while sleeping at night was just icing on the cake. Such fun! Already reserved it for next year and we can't wait!

Perfect & Peaceful Maine Cottage
This cottage on the beach was everything you could want -- evokes memories of Maine in years past.
We are glad you liked the cottage and had a great sunny week for the beach. We spent some time upgrading the place....new twin bed and couch, newly painted bedrooms, new steps and railing out front. But the thing that makes this house very special is the great beach in front, the peacefulness, and the privacy. Loved hearing about your clamming success out front and your clam chowder lunch and lobster dinner! Sounded like a perfect vacation. Lyn, thank you for your review.
