About the area

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 beach and areas catering to families and are great for little kids. Families return here year after year for vacations. From Ferry Beach in Saco it's a short walk to Camp Ellis where the Saco River meets the ocean. There is great fishing in both areas. Old Orchard for the famous pier, shops & amusements is only 3 miles away. 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. Ferry Beach State Park is a short distance away at Ferry Beach with trails to walk Camp Ellis is a "Fishing Village" area....now dotted with newly-remodeled. Located where the Saco River joins the ocean with a mile-long jetty in the canal. The dock is open year round, 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. Whale watching, paragliding & fishing charters operate out of the docks in Camp Ellis. Saco & Old Orchard exits are #36 on the Maine Turnpike and 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 in Portland is at the waterfront with shops, 25 minute ride. We're about 1-1/2 hours or so from the Boston area.

“Holidays in Saco”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2013

Well located and close to the beach and quiet. There was a problem with the water pressure. Need to have a table outside (on the patio) with at leat 2 more chairs.

Owner's reply: We were not told about any problem with the water pressure when tenants were here and had no idea there was a problem. If they had called me would have called Water Company right away. Issue has been fixed. Also, this is first year house is rented in summer and listed for rent late in the spring, around June. Owner plans to put a picnic table out back on the patio for next summer.
