Eliot House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6
Quintessential Maine home featured as cover story in Accent Magazine (See Cover Photo). Very private situated on the Piscataqua River with access to the Atlantic Ocean. Dock and mooring provide use of kayaks, canoe, and excellent swimming. Lie in the hammock and enjoy stunning sunsets every afternoon. Home is located directly on the Piscataqua River, about five miles from Portsmouth, NH where the Piscataqua joins the ocean. Boats can go directly to the ocean and use of a mooring at the house is included. The river is tidal and makes for very good swimming (the water is generally 10 to 15 degrees warmer than at the ocean) with safe, gentle current anytime between half and full high tide. This part of the river is wide and wooded with few houses for a very private feel in completely natural surroundings.
Home features 1 bedroom with a queen size bed and a den and bath on the first floor. Master Suite with king size bed with bath and second bedroom with a king size bed that converts to twins on the second floor. Master suite includes gas woodstove, French doors to balcony overlooking the water, master bath includes large spa tub. Kitchen/dining/family room with stone fireplace and French doors to deck and screened porch. Living room with grand piano and built in bookcases.
Kitchen offers 6 burner cook top, stainless refrigerator and walk in pantry. Property surrounded by gardens and many opportunities for quiet walks. Nearby Portsmouth and Portland offer tons of cultural events, restaurants and shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great time in Maine and were delighted by your wonderful home and tranquil setting. The home was well equipped and had a very welcoming atmosphere. The scenery was beautiful and the views from the master bedroom spectacular. It was really conducive to sharing time with our family. I couldn't have picked a better setting. The pictures on the website were lovely but the experience of being on the river in a very private setting and lovely accomodations was even better. We especially enjoyed our dinners on the screened in porch. We will definitely recommend your home to our friends and family and hope to get back to Maine for another vacation. Carol
