Area Information

Saco, ME is 3 miles south of Old Orchard Beach and part of Maine's largest sandy beach, from Camp Ellis to Pine Point in Scarborough, 7 miles long.

The Ferry Beach Saco area is a quiet, quaint area unspoiled with high rises in either Ferry Beach or Camp Ellis. All cottages are at least a 1-3 minute walk to the beach or less here at Saco Bay.

Camp Ellis is part of Saco located where the Saco River joins the ocean at Saco Bay. You can bike or walk to 2 nearby restaurants and our quaint fishing harbor in Camp Ellis, Ferry Beach State Park and more! There’s fishing here right off the beach, at the end of Sunset Ave. or at the mile-long Jetty in Camp Ellis.

We're about a 10-minute drive to Funtown and the Aquaboggin, both on Rte. 1 in Saco and 3 miles to OOB for shops & amusements. A convenience store, 2 restaurants, a bait & tackle shop and the main fishing pier are all within walking distance. Deep sea fishing boats and whale watching boats leave the docks in Camp Ellis. Kayak rentals not far away. Ferry Beach State Park is close by which offers several paths for walking.

There is a bike path from this area to the Old Orchard line. This is a great central location and a community which caters to families, unspoiled by high rises.

Biddeford-Saco Golf Club is about 3 miles up the Ferry Rd. Saco and Old Orchard have amusement parks which are open seasonally.

Saco exit is #36 on the Maine Turnpike and we're 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 in Portland at the waterfront with shops.

We’re about 1-1/2 to 2 hours or so from the general Boston area
Portland Jetport is a 20- minute drive.
Manchester, NH Airport is a 1-1/2 hours drive.
Logan Intnl. Airport in Boston is a 1-1/2 hours drive.
