New Castle is a magic place. We hope you enjoy your stay in our home away from home!!
We have lived in the New Hampshire seacoast for over 20 years and raised our three children here. New Castle has always been the home of our hearts.
New Castle is a hidden jewel in the seacoast. Our family and friends have summered here since the 1970s. It has been our dream to finally own a place of our own here. We are so excited to finally fulfill that dream and are so happy to share it with you!
In a word 'history'. We were enchanted with the story that neighbors told us of the sailors that used to come up from the sea after a long day of fishing for a 'pint' at the tavern which is now our home.
