Description from owner

Architect designed and built luxurious beach house located in lovely southern Maine. This house is located at one of the few beautiful sand beaches in Maine - Ferry Beach.

Camp Ellis restaurants and Marina are within walking distance. A very short walk is Ferry Beach State Park (117 acres). Great for walks through one of the best Tupelo Swamps in New England. Raised wooden walkways through huge blueberry bushes are one of the best kept secrets on this lovely beach community. Ocean Park, Kinney Shores, Old Orchard Beach, Portland and LL Bean are also very close.

20 minutes to Portland Maine. 1.5 hours from Boston. 5 hours from NYC.

About the area

This house is located at the "private" end of Ferry Beach in the sense that there is no public parking and parking along the streets is prohibited. You can walk for miles along this sandy and scenic beach. Many attractions are just a short drive away but several hyper-local places are a very short walk from this house. You can grab breakfast, lobsters, ice cream or household items at the Camp Ellis General Store 0.5 miles away. Don't feel like cooking or driving? Then just walk to Huot's or Wormwoods in Camp Ellis for exceptional seafood and very friendly staff and eat with the locals. Are you a city person and need fine dining? Then make reservations at Street&Co, Fore Street, The Salt Exchange or may others in Portland a short drive away. Want the freshest lobster? Then contact Dean "The Fishin' Optician" in Camp Ellis. Kids need sugar after dinner? Great idea, then head to the General Store (0.5 miles) in Camp Ellis or Garside's (2 miles) on Ferry Road. Kids need to get their ya-yas out? Bring them to the Funtown/Splashtown or Palace Playland.

“Beautiful home, perfect location”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2016

I can't say enough good things about this house. It had beautiful views of the water, it was well appointed with everything we needed for the week and it was clean and updated. The beach is literally across the street (FYI- the beach is sandy and gorgeous, but the water was freezing in early July!). There is a large outdoor eating area on the back porch, which made big family dinners easy. Old Orchard Beach is a very short drive (not even 10 mins), and Portland/Cape Elizabeth are easy nice day trips from this house (about 30 mins). Just one thing: the house is tall and narrow - so, lots of stairs! We hope to return here next time we vacation in Saco!

“Wonderful week”

Our family totally enjoyed our week there. It was such an enjoyable location. The house was amazing. The neighbors were very helpful, friendly and welcoming. We would love to do it again

This was a last minute off-season rental and the owner was awesome!! House was spacious, family friendly, very clean, internet and cable, all the amenities! View and beach access right out the front door. Already have plans for next year - thank you Mike!

“Beautiful Beach House!”

Reviewed 3 Feb 2015

If you are looking for a week at the beach - sand, surf and tranquility - this place is for you! I am no camper (some might call me a Glam-per) so this beautifully appointed home away from home was just perfect! Stayed here with my daughter and son-in-law and their 8 month old baby, so a comfortable home to retreat from the son, watch movies, wait out nap time and prepare meals is a must! Spectacular views, no crowds on the beach - a hidden gem for sure!

“Phenomenal Place to Stay”

Reviewed 15 Jan 2015

If you are looking for a place to view beautiful Maine sunrises from a deck, easy access to fantastic kayaking in a river inlet off the sea, short drives to Portland, Freeport, Kinnebunkport... or maybe just down the street to the General Store for ice cream or maybe to the beach.....this house is a gem. My family stayed in this house a week for a family reunion and it was spectacular. We maxed out the space and the age range was from 9 to 69. The house makes you feel like you are at home. It's been beautifully maintained and it is just a few minutes walk to the beach. The decks you see in the picture are absolutely fantastic to enjoy the serenity around you....or if you need to segregate from a few people in your party during your stay. Bottomline: It's a cozy and well-appointed home that delivered much more than we anticipated . We cannot wait until our next stay.

Owner's reply: Very kind words Brian; thank you. You guys are welcome back anytime!

“Well maintained, modern house steps from the beach”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2013

My family and I enjoyed this house for ten days in October. We wanted to rent a nice house that was close to the ocean. Its a well decorated, tri-level with great balconies and excellent views of the ocean. The house is 'turnkey' in that they provide linens, silverware, plateware, condiments, etc. Its nice not having to think about that kind of stuff. The bathrooms are modern with good water pressure, the heaters work (although its a little tricky to balance the temperature on all 3 floors), washer and dryers are in great condition and so is the dishwasher. The entire kitchen is updated and nice. The only complaint I had was the early morning noise the kids camp made across the street on some days - but it was a good excuse to get up early and walk to the beach. The house is just a one minute walk to the shore. We enjoyed sleeping to the sound of crashing waves each night. We really enjoyed the house and would return again if it was available.

“70th Birthday at Ferry Beach”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2012

4 " young girls" rented Mike Wiley's Great Beach house at Ferry Beach in Maine to celebrate our "70th" birthday. The house is terrific and well stocked with just about any appliance you need.. Has great views from all rooms and being able to take a shower and watch the waves was a real treat. The house is a short walk across the road to the cleanest beach I have ever seen. The sun rises were terrific. 2 of us walked 4 miles on the beach every morning and took pictures of the sun when it rose and then walked it again at night. I strongly recommend this house to all . There is plenty of room and alot of stairs to climb but worth every step.

“Great house in excellent location”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2012

We have rented this house several times over the last few years and have had a great time each time. House is always clean and well prepared, the kitchen is well equipped and very functional. The beach is right near by, you are in a quiet location but close to lot's of great southern Maine activities. The view from both decks is spectacular.

Owner's reply: Always a pleasure to have you guys!

“O, What a wonderful time”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2010

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. The beach was very accesible, and the neighborhood very quiet and friendly. The beach was wonderful for small children.

“Great house and location”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2009

We spent a week there in August 2009 and highly recommend it. Wonderful house - very well equipped and comfortable, with splendid views. The beach was lovely for small kids as well as adults. Very quiet and family friendly. Kayaking on the Saco river was excellent, and Portland definitely worth a visit.
