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.
