Portsmouth House Rental Photos and Description

3 BD/2 BA 2,500 Sq Ft Home W/ 600' Of Tidal Water, Connected To Pepperell Cove

Private and quiet, with room to roam, the Chauncey Creek House is a very special place for all to gather, anytime of the year.

Picturesque Kittery Point is part of Kittery, Maine's oldest and southernmost town. Adjacent to York, it retains the unspoiled charm of a historic fishing village.

The Chauncey Creek House has deeded access to Crescent Beach, just a 5 minute walk away and sits on almost two acres of wooded and naturally landscaped property. It borders the neighboring Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge, and the only residential neighbor is across the street on the landward side of the house.

Walk the beautiful terrain and safely enjoy a stroll to the beach along Tower Road, a private, low-traffic road in this rural, residential neighborhood.

A total of 6 guests can sleep enjoy the Chauncey Creek House. The three bedrooms are upstairs (two twins beds in one bedroom and a queen bed in each of the other bedrooms) There are 1¾ baths: one full bathroom upstairs with a vanity sink, bath tub with high-end fixtures, and toilet. This bathroom upstairs has two doors- one off the master bedroom and the other off the hallway. The downstairs bathroom has a walk-in shower with high-end fixtures and toilet.

Pets and children are welcomed guests.

The home provides a large grassy fenced in lawn. Please keep your pet on a leash when visiting the beach.

The 2,500 sq. ft home welcomes guests with warm, colorful walls, hardwood floors and inviting comfortable furniture. The home is a modified cape house, with serene views of the tidal water and National Wildlife Refuge.

From each room, large windows offer views of the large pine and oak trees and the quiet waterfront beyond. This is a property that friends and family frequent, so guests will find all the necessary conveniences of home like cookware, utensils, spices, oils and serving bowls and trays to present any small or large meal.

The kitchen's large, open floor plan accommodates those that find themselves gathering in the kitchen, awaiting the next delicious meal. The large windows allow guests to catch sightings of wildlife and watch the ebb of flow of the creek's tide, just steps away.

There is plenty of scenery from any directions when traveling to Chauncey Creek House, along Mine Route 103 and US HWY 1.

It’s a pretty drive that winds past coastal cottages, salt marshes and forested properties. The rock fences and classic New England homes and historic buildings line the road, as it curves and edges past the water, with views of bobbing lobster boats anchored in the harbor.

Guests are welcome to use the canoe and row boat or bring boats. The property has a private floating dock. However, there is not a boat launch on the property.

About Sarah Nie, reservationist

Welcome to Kittery Point! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, since I first discovered it in 1969. I have been the only owner since 1990. I have lived in and around the New England coast and central Maine for many years. I owned and operated a hydrogeology firm until 2006 and now work as a Senior Associate, Hydrogeologist for SANTEC . When I am not in Maine, hiking or boating, I am either living in Daphne, AL or traveling to Bequia in Grenadines or Switzerland.

Sarah Nie, reservationist purchased this house in 1990

Why Sarah Nie, reservationist chose Portsmouth

I fell in love with this area many years ago and have many friends in the area that together we enjoy hiking, sailing, and kayaking.

What makes this house unique

The location of the property is ideal because of its proximity to outdoor activities and access to tidal water out the back door, the a private dock. I love sharing with others the great hiking, the beaches, and being on the water.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a brief 4 days but in that short time we walked the beaches and around to the Wild Life Refuge a number of times . Also did a nice hike up mountain in the area. Was not beach weather yet but we had a wonderful time. The house was like home. We wanted for nothing and enjoyed just sitting and watching the tide come in and go out. Beds were comfortable and cotton sheets too!! Would stay again , only longer and in beach weather next time. Located in a lovely, peaceful area.

Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

My children are grown and live all over the place. I wanted to rent a place that we could all be together. This house was beautiful and was just what we needed. The Kitchen was great to cook in and had everything you would need to make Thanksgiving dinner, pots, pans, spices and serving dishes. My children enjoyed being together around the fireplace. The beds were great. And the view was spectacular.

Lovely stay in Maine!

We had a lovely time at this property. Very quiet, peaceful setting. Kitchen is fully stocked and the beds are very comfortable. It was a wonderful home base for us as we toured the coast of Maine and Portsmouth, NH.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this place. It is beautifully situated on a quiet, private road in the woods, looking down on the tidal river teeming with wild birds, and a short, quiet walk down the road to the open ocean, beach and wildlife preserve. Hard to believe it is so close to cosmopolitan Portsmouth with its fine restaurants and old colonial buildings. The house is comfortable and well appointed, with good beds and bathrooms, a modern kitchen with everything you might need to prepare a meal, good Wi Fi connection and wide screen television with cable, and a wonderful wood burning fireplace to make an October evening warm and cozy. Plus a dock and canoe! We very much look forward to returning to Gerrish Island.

Spacious, scenic, and serene retreat. The perfect relaxing escape!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I recently spent a long weekend at the Chauncey Creek House and couldn't have been happier. The house was spacious, clean, and beautiful with lots of room both indoors and out with the 2 porches. We especially enjoyed the large kitchen work space for making many tasty meals, from mussels to grilled lobster to apple pie. It was a little tricky figuring out how to get to the ocean, but once we did, the view was beautiful -- classic Maine rocky coast. From the comfy beds to the outdoor fire pit, we had a terrific stay and would gladly return. Thanks so much!

Escape from stresses of life

  • 5 of 5

The best family vacation ever! Wish this home was our own....perfect place for us to unwind and bond as a family. Loved the estuary, beach was beautiful, canoe provided adventure, peaceful place to bike ride and the dogs were quite happy enjoying the fenced in yard. The house itself was well equipped, kitchen was very functional and views from rooms were lovely. We will return!!!

Sea Point and Crescent Beaches - Sea Point Beach can be accessed at the end of Sea Point Road. Look for the small parking area that marks the entrance to Sea Point Beach. Dogs are allowed on the beach during the day until June 15th. Abide by parking signage-only residents with valid dump stickers are allowed to park at the head of the beach after May 15th. Sea Point's has a 550-yard sandy crescent beach with gentle surf on the north side of a tiny peninsula and is backed by a marsh, providing wonderful bird-watching. Nearby Crescent Beach, also backed by salt marsh, is the 'local' beach, and a great stopping point on a winding bike trip along the coast.

Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier- If you’re looking for an authentic lobster-in-the-rough experience, this is the seafood shack for you. Lobsters, steamers, mussels, and all other sorts of fresh seafood are served atop brightly colored picnic tables on a deck overlooking the creek of the same name. It’s BYOB, and many patrons arrive toting an assortment of accessories to enhance the meal — side dishes, tablecloths, candles, bug spray. The view of the water is what makes this an outdoor dining experience not to miss. With the post office just across the street and the town dock tucked down behind The Captain and Patty’s restaurant, which in turn lies directly behind Enoteca, this truly is the hub of Kittery Point.

On the other side of Chauncey Creek and the house, along Brave Boat Harbor Road, there is the enterance to 1.8 mile loop trail that takes you through the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge.
