I had an amazing stay here inPortsmouth. This house is absolutely beautiful! It is a historic home in the heart of historic Olde Towne Portsmouth. The location is absolutely the best in Portsmouth. It is easy walking distance to all the Olde Towne restaurants and shopping.
The home has been beautifully restored, and is filled with lovely antiques and historic Portsmouth memorabilia. It is also homey and very comfortable. The ground floor kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need if you decide to stay in and cook. It may be a historic home, but it has all the modern amenities, including microwave, coffeemaker and dishwasher. I spent most of my time in the house relaxing in the ground floor living room by the hassling fireplace.
The second floor includes the formal entrance to the house and a lovely foyer leading to the stairway to the 3rd floor, where the bedrooms and full bath are located. I stayed in the light-filled first bedroom, which has a super-comfy 4 poster queen bed. I was alone, so I didn’t try out the bed in the second bedroom, but it looks comfortable, too. The full bath features a claw foot tub/shower. I took advantage of the tub, and it’s lovely! There are soaps, bath salts, shampoo/conditioner and a blow dryer available.
Dina is an amazing host! Everything you can imagine needing has been provided. She is available to answer any questions, and knows everything about the area. She was so friendly, welcoming, and helpful, but not at all intrusive.
I enjoyed my stay here so much, I’ve already booked this house for my next trip to Portsmouth in April!
This is definately for the budget conscious. Small and cozy. The description is very accurate. It's an old house and drafty with character. George was great to work with and responded to questions and needs promptly. He was very accommodating to ensure we enjoyed our stay.
The view of the bay was great from the bedroom window, the bed was very comfortable and the unit was clean.
The downfall was a small kitchen with a gas stove and little to no ventilation, so you could smell the gas from the pilot light, we put a blanket up between the kitchen and living area. Also the TV from the lower unit was right below the bedroom, so if people were watching TV you could hear it.
We would definately rent a unit from George again.
