This cozy and welcoming room in our 19th century New Englander was once a farmhand's apartment. It has its own private walk up entrance and stairs (2nd floor), off road parking, four-poster canopy bed, hardwood floors, antique clawfoot tub with handheld shower, and complete kitchen in a rural setting with lots of privacy. We are conveniently located a few minutes from both Rye Beach and down town Market Square in Portsmouth. During the summer months there are nearby farmers markets, plenty of PYO farms, music festivals, art galleries, and of course the beaches and state parks, but this area is a Year Round Destination. Each season has it's own special flavor. We have a large backyard and picnic table that many guests enjoy. The area is rich in history and natural beauty. You get the best of the Seacoast without any of the hassle of staying downtown.
Your studio apartment is entirely private and you can also enjoy a blanket or chair in the shade or sun in the very spacious backyard. In winter, with snow, the backyard looks like a fairy tale. Plenty of parking space too.
If you want total privacy it's yours. However, we are friendly and glad to share tips about this beautiful part of the world with our guests. There is so much to experience within 5 miles in any direction! Parks and beaches, cosmopolitan nightlife, amazing restaurants, shopping, local events. Glad to make recommendations based on your preferences.
We have 2 cats who may say hello to you outdoors only. The apartment has a full kitchen, so no meals are provided. Coffee/tea always available. In addition to the usual linens we supply beach towels in season. Let us know if you have special needs or requests and we will do our best to accommodate. We are artists, educators, and counselors and we welcome and appreciate meeting and hosting guests from diverse backgrounds and orientations.
You will be treated with courtesy and respect, and expect the same. No smoking.
