Hampton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Close walk to beach, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Just a short walk to North Hampton beaches this fully furnished cottage for summer vacationers, winter rental, traveling executives, families moving to the area, a romantic or girls getaway, grandparents hideout, adventure seekers, tourists, or a retreat for pastors. 55 miles from Boston - 45 Miles from Manchester

This cottage was built in the 1920's as a religious retreat as were other cottages in the Surfside Park area. Today, some cottages are one season, but most have been upgraded to year around homes.

The cottage has about 1,300 square feet on two floors. Plus it has a walkout basement for storage and laundry. The cottage was recently remodeled and updated. Key features of the cottage are the open beam ceiling down stairs, front and rear poaches for sitting and sunning in the cool sea breezes of summer, some old exposed chimney brick, decorated in a comfortable cottage style.

This is a place where you can relax, take walks to the near by beach, go for rides up the sea coast and enjoy the beautiful scenery and sneak out for a coffee or ice cream when the urge calls, and if you want to go to the strip, it is near by. The seacoast is full of beauty and history, entertainment and great restaurants, too many to see or consume in one trip. You will reschedule for a return trip the next year.

About Stephen Kirchoff

Owner's Jacque and Steve bought this property and have renovated it into a charming and relaxing 1930's cottage. We use this property often, especially in the cool summers. We enjoy hosting friends and grand-kids visits. We often share this property with pastors and missionaries taking a break. We are looking for seacoast lovers to join us in the use of this property and make it their special place year after year.

Stephen Kirchoff purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Stephen Kirchoff chose Seacoast New Hampshire

We chose to buy in the New Hampshire seacoast area because the summers are cool, sun is warm and the seacoast drives and nearby mountains are beautiful in both the summer, fall and winter.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy eating out at the many restaurants and enjoy taking the train into Boston or up into Maine. Often we will go down to the local lobster pound, buy fresh lobster and steamers and fix them at home. Or in the Summer we go to the local orchards or farms and pick strawberries, blueberries, apples and peaches. For the more venturesome ones, they can whale watch or deep sea fish. My wife loves reading at the beach and eating lunch at historic inns. In addition, I like my morning coffee at KB's Coffee and Bagel shop. I talking with the locals trying to understand statements like 'it's mo better heah', play golf, look for antiques, and just drive the beautiful coastline, visit the White Mountain peak, beautiful lake Winnespaukee, venture a mountain climb, ski run all a short drive away.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Periwinkle summer rental

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect. Our family had the best time. It had everthing you needed just like being home. It is very close to the beach and all the entertainment and excitement. At the end of the day you could come home to peace and quite and cook a home cook meal on the grill. In the morning we loved sitting on the front deck drinking our tea and coffee. It's on a very quiet street. We so look forward to going back and making more memories with our family. We just loved the place. It was everthing they said it was and more. Thank you so much

Periwinkle winter rental

  • 5 of 5

I lived at this residence for two years in a row as a winter rental Sept-June. The house is equipped with everything you would need and you can literally show up with just a bag of clothes. It is a perfect place for a week visit or even better as a longer term place to call home. It also has a basement which has plenty of storage for your own belongings. There is ample parking and two large decks for sunbathing or entertaining. This stay made life easy -as it also comes with snow removal, a gardner, and someone that mows the lawn. The neighbors are extremely friendly and the neighborhood is a quaint and community type feel. There is one large master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms and two bathrooms. All in all it was a great experience for my friend and I . The Landord was attentive to an issue and went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great extended stay. I would recommend this rental to anyone especially someone needing a fresh start!

The Periwinkle

  • 5 of 5

My roommate and I rented for two winters in a row and it was great! We were able to enjoy our winters in Hampton and the house was incredibly cozy so we had a touch of home also. Our stay was great!

The Periwinkle Cottage in Hampton, NH

  • 5 of 5

This past July 25th through the 29th, I stayed at "The Periwinkle Cottage" in Hampton, N.H. Such a quaint cottage with a comfy and cozy feel! The weather was very mild when I arrived; so refreshing as I was escaping the heat from my own home state! It warmed up while I was there, but still perfect. I had everything I needed in the cottage. The neighborhood was great for just getting out and walking, and close enough to walk to the beach and a great little seaside cafe. There is so much history in the area, and things to see and do, all within easy drives. There were great restaurants close, and especially the fresh seafood! I had a very enjoyable stay, and would definitely like to stay at "The Periwinkle Cottage" in Hampton again!

Renting for the Winter on North Beach in Hampton, New Hampshire

  • 5 of 5

The Periwinkle is a unique experience especially in the Winter. We started our rental in September experiencing summer like weather at the end of the tourist season. Through Fall and into Winter we found the changes in the Beach to be an interesting experience. Collection of drift wood, sea shells & lobster buoy's being one of our favorite daily activities on our daily Beach Walks! There are some really neat places open at the Beach during the Winter that become very affordable for dining and entertainment after the tourist season. If you are up for a few miles of walking most places are easily accessible on foot. Proper Winter wear is recommended including waterproof boots or shoes for those low tide walks in the Surf! The Periwinkle House is fabulously furnished with all the comforts of home and a top notch heating system that keeps the place very cozily warm with no drafts. The Periwinkle has a backyard for children & some bikes for getting around. There are children in the neighborhood as well. It's a great place & we highly recommend a stay in any season!
