Description

The Space

Walk to shops & restaurants or see a film at the Seacoast's famous Music Hall. Visit historic Strawbery Banke as Spring comes to Prescott Park. Our quaint town offers art, pubs, history, music & more all throughout the year.

Guests will be staying in an antique Portsmouth home, built in 1804. The ceilings in the rooms are low, helping to keep much of the historic character. It has the charm one hopes to find in New England seaports but the art and design also make it contemporary. It's a combination of the two that bring it into the present.

My house is a four block walk from historical downtown Portsmouth which has a beautiful waterfront; boating and kayaking tours and rentals, along with shops & excellent restaurants, walking, running & riding trails are all around. Market Square -- where holiday events and live entertainment go on throughout the year -- is the town's center and surrounded by eclectic shops and award winning restaurants.

Less than an hour drive from Boston and Logan airport, we are centrally located - an easy drive north to the Maine coasts and Salem, Gloucester and Rockport, Massachusetts to the south.

There's a coveted single off-street parking spot and a safe place to store bikes. On the back porch guests will find a charcoal grill available; two doors away is a neighborhood market that boasts the coldest beer in town.

I have 2 3-speed British bicycles for guests to use. My parents brought them back from England after they honeymooned in London almost 50 years ago. They've just been tuned up and are ready for peddling through Portsmouth's streets.

Portsmouth offers a downtown trolley (Summer 2014 schedule available) to access all the major areas within town. There are bike rentals nearby, horse drawn carriages, taxis, and even kayaks to navigate the waterways.

For transport to and from Portsmouth C&J offers an excellent bus service to Newburyport, Boston, and New York.

No dogs, please, but we are diabetic-friendly.

Weekly rental price is for the entire house -- comfortably sleeps four, not including sectional or inflatable mattress.

This really depends on the guests. I obviously have a job to run off to and errands to tend, but I also enjoy interacting and learning about my visitors. I'm always available to answer questions via phone, text, or email, but -- since I'll be sharing the same roof -- there'll be plenty of time to be sociable if that's what the guest desires. I can accommodate both time and space to fit the wants of my guests, and am happy to do so.

Travel and Leisure did a fantastic job of highlighting some of Portsmouth's traditional -- and non-traditional -- holiday goings-on. (website hidden)

This year Portsmouth celebrates the 10th anniversary of Vintage Christmas, a collection of events that take place throughout December. The website (website hidden) tells all about it.

Other Things to Note

The stairway to the guest rooms are narrow and slightly steep, the originals from the early-1800s. It was suggested by a senior guest that I make this information known ahead of time...
