New Castle House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom Home in walking distance to beaches, restaurants and spa. Spectacular!

Book now for Summer in New England in one of the most beautiful spots in New England. Grab your favorite book and snuggle up in one of the 4 sunny bedrooms or walk across the street to one of two beaches. Stunning turn of the century, Victorian cottage with high ceilings, 6 foot windows and lots of natural light and beauty. Unlike many homes on the island, this house is set way back from the road and as a result, the house is peaceful and quiet. Expansive front porch for sitting and enjoying the beautiful New Castle sky.

Simple and large kitchen with seating for 6 or more, along with a dining room and living room downstairs. Four bedrooms, all with large closets and built in drawers, each with its own charm.

Walk across the street to Great Island Common for a day at the beach, or tossing a Frisbee or swinging at the park. Fort Stark is at the end of Wild Rose Lane (also across the street) and it is a relaxing place to watch the boats sail by. Wentworth By the Sea is less than a 5 minute walk from the house, along a beautiful path and has great restaurants, spa, and more. A quick drive puts you in historic Portsmouth, NH where you can choose from dozens of restaurants, boutique and outlet shopping and the history of Strawberry Banke. Art galleries, indoor and outdoor theater and concerts, make this area such a joy to visit.

This is the perfect vacation home to enjoy all that the Seacoast has to offer and is perfect for the family who wants a charming and simple home.

Perfect Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our weekend stay! The house was clean, warm, and we had everything we needed! It was a delightful surprise to have a personal handwritten note, fresh flowers and a bottle of wine waiting for us. Even though the weather was dreary, we didn't mind as we all gathered in the livingroom for talking, games and plenty of laughs. The two full sized sofas gave us plenty of room. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of sleeping room. We will no doubt stay here again and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Great space for gathering

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home with lots of space for visiting with family. Open floor plan and big kitchen give you an opportunity to spend time enjoying each other! Huge yard with plenty of room to play. Location is incredible! Easy walk to rocky ocean front, park with playground, Fort Stark and a great walking/running area. The owners have thought of every detail to make your visit comfortable and were easily available to me when I had a question. We will be back!

Spacious, Comfortable, and So Welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage, nestled amongst the pines, is the perfect place for relaxing & unwinding or to entertain guests! My family and a good friend's family enjoyed the week together. We were able to spread out comfortably indoors but also greatly appreciated the opportunity to sit out on the front porch or relax outdoors on the patio. The cottage is surrounded by a perfectly manicured yard and gardens! Being greeted with fresh flowers throughout the house was just one of the many special touches that made us feel so at home here!

With a huge eat-in kitchen, pantry, dining room, living room, and four welcoming bedrooms upstairs, it made for a week of fun and rejuvenation! Several mornings, we sat outside on the patio, sipping our coffee, and watched the birds.

Dragonfly Cottage truly offers something for everyone! Both the adults and children soaked up the sun at a nearby cove beach, with great views of two lighthouses! One afternoon, we took a short stroll to a nearby marina and had lunch on the water.

Dragonfly Cottage is impeccably kept – it has so much charm AND provides all the modern amenities. This Victorian home is stocked with comfy linens, beach chairs, games for the kids, a washer & dryer – every possible item you might need to enjoy your time there!

Portsmouth is just a hop, skip, and a jump away, too! This port city boasts casual and upscale restaurants, historic homes & sites to visit, amazing art galleries, and even theater. Everyone of us enjoyed an outdoor theater performance under the stars! Dragonfly Cottage's location is just one of its many treasures.

Thank you so much for your hospitality! We can't wait to come back to Dragonfly Cottage!

This cozy cottage, nestles amongst the pines on the scenic island town of New Castle, NH, is perfect for relaxing, unwinding, or entertaining. Huge eat-in kitchen, a dining room, living room, and four comfortable bedrooms upstairs. Bring a book and dream the day away on the front porch, soak up the sunshine at the beach, take a bicycle ride down the coast, or head into Portsmouth for dinner on the decks – it offers something for everyone! This gem is impeccably kept – it has so much charm but provides all the modern amenities Nothing is left to chance – it’s stocked with comfy linens, beach chairs, washer & dryer – every possible thing yo

Perfect vacation rental for families!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you!! What a wonderful week we had. The house and location were just perfect for my family. This house easily slept my sister, mom, 6 and 9 year old nieces and my 2 year old son. We enjoyed lazy mornings at the kitchen table with daily adventures walking to the common beach and playground across the street, loading up kids and wagons to have a picnic at Fort Stark, sightseeing in Portsmouth, shopping at the Kittery outlets, amongst other adventures. The house became our home instantly. Marc and Beth thought of everything and included so many thoughtful touches. The beds and furniture were all very comfortable. The kids loved playing in the house and on the grounds. You can't go wrong in booking this house for your next beach vacation. We hope to come back again!

"Dragonfly Cottage"

  • 5 of 5

"Dragonfly Cottage" is a welcoming, warm and interesting 1900 house, set far from the road, yet a short walk to New Castle beach. We were greeted with fresh garden flowers in each of the rooms that are appointed with all that is necessary to feel at home. The kitchen is well equipped, beds comfy, and beach supplies plentiful. The children loved doing cart wheels on the large front lawn and skateboarding on the driveway. "Dragonfly Cottage" makes for a lovely stay in quaint New Castle. It is a quiet, private retreat and perfect for family fun.

Idyllic and Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Victorian home was the perfect place for my family and mom to spend a week. From the price, to the location, to the character of the home, the proximity of new castle to everything else, it was just perfect and all six of our guests agreed that we would love to stay here again next year.

My 9 year old nephew and 6 year old niece adored the character of the house and the ability to play outside with no mosquitoes or threats of traffic since the house is set way back with a large front yard. We walked across the street to an ideal kid's beach and park and since we walked over it was free to get in! Them we walked the other way toward wild rose lane, past the muti-million dollar houses, and we walked out on a long rock jetty that was really cool. Other days we drove to beautiful Rye beaches and they only a beautiful 8 minute ride. We were able to take the scenic ten minute ride into Portsmouth as well, and the location is simply perfect!

The owners of the house, couldn't have been more accommodating and gracious. From welcoming flowers and wine to providing an air conditioner for my mother that we didn't need. Marc was right and the house is plenty cool enough and was never uncomfortable or needed AC. The house was filled with all of the amenities that you would need and expect, as well as everything being extremely clean and very well taken care of.

I would recommend this house whole-heartedly to anyone that is looking for a gorgeous and convenient setting in New Castle, NH and it's perfect for kids too!

We will most certainly stay there again and you should too!!!
