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.

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!!!

Charming house in an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for sharing you beautiful house!
The house is very clean, charming, with everything you need, also for baking and cooking.
The place is wonderful and the quiet creek in front of the house is great for kids. They can play without worrying, and having the canoe is really nice for the whole family.
The two beaches are very beautiful, with gorgeous sunsets if you like taking pictures. Dogs are allowed after 5pm.
Portsmouth is perfect for rainy days, with a lot of beautiful shops and good restaurants.
A really nice place to go, very seclude but close to everything you can need!

Peaceful home

  • 4 of 5
We recently returned from spending nine days at this Chauncey Creek home. The view of the creek, watching the tide ebb and flow was fascinating. The home is close enough to civilization if you choose to shop at the outlet stores. However, sitting on the deck and listening to nature at its best will make you think you are isolated on a far away island. The beds are very comfortable, and overall the home is quite inviting.

Natural Environment

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time at the Chauncy Creek house, enjoying a large property in a natural environment. The dock is a superb place to hang out; the swing, lovely, if aged. The house is beautiful, but could have used curtains on the bedroom windows for better sleep. Oh well, we got up and went for bike rides.

Guys golf weekend

  • 5 of 5
House was perfect for a nice quiet weekend away. Rooms were all great sizes and basement was a great added bonus with the ping pong table. Bonfire in the backyard was also a nice touch, all with views of the water. Would recommend this place for all different weekends.

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.
