That Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5
Have you ever stayed at a vacation property you never wanted to leave? The boathouse in Kittery, Maine, is that perfect place. The spacious ambiance, cook tech savy essentials, convenient location to Portsmouth, Kittery malls, Maine points north, and local foodie favorites minutes away all contribute to the 5 star rating. The property owner greeted us upon arrival with a quick overview of the tastefully appointed and well-maintained property. By far the high point of this rental is the location and views one marvels at from almost every window. The ever-evolving scenes of Portsmouth Harbor and the tides make it worth eating in. We cooked dinners nightly during our week stay, savoring local bakery, seafood, fruit, and sides; a synergy of choices just up the road including Beach Pea, Seaport Fish, and Terra Cotta Pasta Co., to mention just a few. If one is not up to cooking while on vacation, there are dozens of restaurants nearby. Some of our favorites include Jumpin' Jay's Fish Cafe, The Friendly Toast, and Geno's Chowder in Portsmouth, NH, and Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier and The Maine Diner in Kittery and Wells, respectively. Attractions we frequented include Ogunquit and Portland and their museums of art, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Stonewall Kitchen in York, and antiquing, restaurants, and shops in between. We can't wait to return to this perfect place.

Just like it looks in the pictures, but better.

  • 5 of 5
This rental is a gem - comfortable and spacious, well maintained and decorated. Owner is available, helpful and discrete. It is well located in a residential area that is very close to downtown Portsmouth via the Memorial Bridge or the other way to the Kittery Outlets. The rhythm of the river which is just outside beyond a large lawn is relaxing and entralling. This works well as a place to truly relax or as a base to explore the area. Either way, it's great to feel like a "local" for a few days.

Beautiful, peace near it all

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed in this wonderful property for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. Upon our arrival we were meet by our host who was gracious and made us feel welcome. The boathouse was so spacious, filled with eclectic art work and in the living room the large picture windows provided beautiful views the Piscataqua River, the sweeping green lawn and across the way Portsmouth Harbor. Flanking the entrance to the bedroom are two french doors and as you lay in the four poster bed you see the same lovely view of the River.

The boathouse was spacious and filled with all the essential we needed for a comfortable stay. it is within walking distance of Portmouth and Kittery which is a vergening Foodie haven. We have already requested to return next year!

Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5
We had the great pleasure of staying in this amazing flat for five days. The view is straight out to the Portsmouth harbor. The stunning design of this unit, makes it possible to see the view from both the living room and the bedroom.

Arnie was a marvelous, and patient host ( as we were quite delayed in our arrival). We found the layout and amenities to be even better than described. The artwork, furnishings and full size washer and dryer were wonderful.

We would highly recommend this place to everyone, and hope to be able to return many times.

Lovely Spot

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this Kittery, Maine boathouse for two weeks in July 2012. We loved our stay so much that we hope to stay there again in 2013!

We originally came to go to a wedding in New Hampshire, and we brought our bicycles along as we are avid cyclists. The cycling in the area is fantastic, and once you get off the beaten path, there are beautiful quiet roads to cycle on with rolling hills and plenty of shade trees.

The boathouse has a beautiful view of Portsmouth, which we expected as we saw photographs in the advertisement for the property. What we didn't know about was that it was walking distance to a produce market, a meat market and one of the best bakeries I've ever gone to- Beach Pea. There are also several restaurants within walking distance. This is a real upside to this property as you can actually stay there without the need of renting a car, as long as you don't mind the short walks to the store. There is also an hourly shuttle close by which will bring you back and forth to Portsmouth, NH.

The owner of the property, Arnet Taylor, couldn't have been more accommodating. He met us on the first day, and showed us where everything was inside the boathouse. I had several questions, and called him while I was there and he answered my questions immediately.

I highly recommend this property if you want to get a great taste of New England life.
