Portsmouth House Rental Photos and Description
Colonia Home In Pristine Condition With Water Views, Beamed Ceilings, Wide Pine

Located in the Historic District of Portsmouth New Hampshire, this 1780’s Colonial Style house resides in the North Mill Pond area. Take a trip back in time and experience a simple life style. Early mornings you can hear the tugs in the distant as they pull out of the harbor. The outside grounds have been carefully planted with every season in mind. The garden is actually featured in the 24th Anniversary Tour of Pocket Gardens of Portsmouth, only 1 of 12 to achieve this distinct privilege. Tucked away like a hidden gem is a Pennsylvania fieldstone stacked stone fireplace that has seen its share of fires. As you enter the house you can’t help but love the stained glass windows. This house has pumpkin pine wide floor planks that give it such character. The kitchen has granite counter tops, along with a farmers sink. Take a peek inside the large pantry through the French door. You and your loved one/s will enjoy casual dinners in the original beamed dining room. Complete with a gas log fireplace and don’t forget to check out the beehive built in oven. This fireplace comes complete with a tiny cupboard that I have been told was used for drying out gunpowder back in the day. The living room floods with sunshine with all of the six over six pained windows, the ceiling is also beamed. At high tide take a peek out the front windows to get a glimpse of North Mill Pond. In the living room, there is a very inviting wood stove in the fireplace for chilly nights. As you walk upstairs through the tiny center sea captains staircase you can’t help but wonder how many people have walked these stairs before you as you notice the worn treads. The two front bedrooms are cozy with nonworking fireplaces and period furniture along with flat screen TV’s for late night viewing. The back bedroom feels very inviting as it overlooks the gardens also with period furniture. The bathroom will transcend you back in time with its claw foot tub and hand painted surroundings. If you are a history buff or have a love of antique homes this is a must do. Portsmouth is a great vacation destination.

This home is on the edge of downtown Portsmouth NH. Walking distance too many restaurants, attractions, live theater and boutique shopping. Walk to Prescott Park, Portsmouth, NH and enjoy entertainment, such as live outdoor theater. Nearby beaches include; Great Island Common in New Castle NH (4 mile drive) and York Beach, York ME (13 mile drive). The property is an easy drive to other seaport towns, such as; Kennebunk Port ME, Ogunquit ME, Rockport MA, Newburyport MA and Gloucester, MA.

This house was way too nice to be a rental. It had all the amenities of my own home...and then some. We were within walking distance of downtown and a short driving distance to the BEST shopping New England has to offer. This was the most relaxing vacation we ever had and will DEFINATELY stay here again !!!!

MY HUSBAND AND I STAYED IN THIS FABULOUS 1780'S COLONIAL HOME. A MODERN YET RUSTIC FEEL. BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED WITH COMFORTABLE FURNISHINGS THAT ALLOWED FOR A PEACEFUL AND RELAXING STAY. THE DAYS WERE SURROUNDED BY A BEAUTIFUL BACK YARD GARDEN AND THE EVENINGS CAME TO LIFE WITH A ONE OF A KIND FIRE PIT. THE TOWN ITSELF IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE FROM THE PROPERTY. THERE ARE NO SHORTAGES IN QUINT SHOPS, EATERY'S, ENTERTAINMENT AND HISTORY, NOT TO FORGET, BEAUTIFUL WATERFRONT VIEWS. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS 1780"S COLONIAL HOME IF YOU LOOKING TO EXPLORE, ENJOY, OR TO KICK BACK AND RELAX.

My husband & I have stayed at this historic home for our get away. We loved it. The house was just as described it was clean & well kept. Loved having a washer and dryer. It is conveniently located, a easy walk into town. The town of Portsmouth provided us with great restaurants & shopping. The back patio and garden was awesome, great for those relaxing nights.
We would stay there again in a heart beat and would recommend it to our friends.
