Area Information
Saco & Old Orchard are half way between Kittery & Freeport for outlet shopping; 20 minutes to South Portland to a major mall and 20 minutes to Portland. There are also many shops along Rte. 1 for antique stuff between Wells & Scarborough. The Old Port is at the waterfront with shops. We’re about 1-1/2 hours or so from the Boston area.

Ferry Beach & Camp Ellis are quaint areas, catering to families, sandy beaches (smaller one at Camp Ellis), unspoiled by high rises. We’re 3 miles south of Old Orchard, a 2 to 3-minute car ride but is walkable.

Camp Ellis is where the Saco River meets the ocean. There is great fishing in both areas.

At the Saco beaches, when you go to the beach and have to go back for lunch, etc., you will not need to bring your blanket or chairs back. No one will touch them when you’re gone. It’s that type of beaches and areas catering to families and are great for little kids. Families return here year after year for vacations.

Camp Ellis is a "Fishing Village" area….now dotted with newly-remodeled. It is still an active fishing area for commercial lobstermen & fishermen. You can go over to the dock and watch both fishing vessels and pleasure boats.

Nearby is the Camp Ellis General Store which features daily lobster catch during season & will cook to perfection while you wait or return to pick them up. They also serve breakfast. In Camp Ellis you can also buy lobsters at "boat prices directly from our friend & neighbor, the lobsterman Dean Coniaris, the "Fish ‘n Optician". You’d have to cook them yourself if bought from him.

Deep-sea fishing boats leave from the docks in Camp Ellis. Kayak rentals are nearby for use on the Saco River, which goes out to the ocean at Saco Bay.

At Camp Ellis there are two local restaurants (specializing in seafood), a bait & tackle shop, deep-sea fishing boats leave from the docks in Camp Ellis. Kayak rentals are nearby for use on the Saco River, which goes out to the ocean at Saco Bay. There is also a mile-long jetty to fish from or just to walk on, a large dock with both fishing & pleasure boats in the harbor, a large dock with both fishing & pleasure boats in the harbor. You can also fish right off Surf St. in Ferry Beach at high tide or off the beach itself. The tackle shop in Camp Ellis is on the dock area. You can fish off the beaches also. Because of the restaurants it’s a little busier down near the dock area at dinnertime. Streets leading to and from the dock are each one-way; North Ave. one way going in & Eastern Ave. is one-way leaving the area.
