Overview

About the property

Large Great Room/Kitchen/Sunroom/Deck/Patio/6 Bedroom/3 Bath, Sleeps 12 adults.

My home is a dog friendly custom crafted home at the end of a private lane in the seaside village of Kittery Point. 1.5 acre lot is surrounded by conservation land on three sides. My home includes a modern sun-room which enters out onto large flagstone patio with a central granite lined fire pit. There is a large fenced in yard for your well behaved dog. The sun-room includes a dog door which opens to the large patio and fenced in yard. The large eat-in kitchen is open concept and adjoins the elevated 26' x 29' Great Room with a corner gas fireplace and large 65" LG flat panel UHD Smart TV, Roku Premier+, Sony Google TV/Internet/Blueray DVD Player, and Sony Surround Sound stereo system. The Great Room includes an expandable dining room table, a Foosball table and a dart board. There is also an elevated bar attached to the kitchen counter which accommodates 4 bar stools. In one corner of the Great Room there is an exercise bicycle. The eat-in kitchen is fully applianced and includes plenty of storage and a round kitchen table that seats 4 to 6 people. The Great Room leads outdoors to a large elevated deck, fully fenced in back yard and the flagstone patio and fire pit. A lower large flat lawn area can accommodate multiple lawn games. There is a horse shoe pit on the upper lawn area next to the patio and a volleyball court can be set up on the lower lawn if requested.

The original main section of the house has two 2nd floor bedrooms with a queen bed, bureau, small closet, and bedside table in each. Next to the two bedrooms is a 3/4 bath with a large shower (2 shower heads) and linen closet. Across the hallway is a small study with one full bed, bureau, bedside table, and a shelf unit with a closet rod for hanging garments (no closet). Up four steps from the hallway leads to a large bedroom studio area with a 2nd interior stairway entrance from the 26' x 29' Great Room. The studio has one king bed, one queen bed and one full bed in an L-shaped 26' x 20.5' space. A second hallway and stairway leads to the expansive Master Suite and Master Office area. The 14' x 26' Master Bedroom includes both a king sleigh bed and a queen bed at opposite ends, separated by a large sofa seating area with a 51" Samsung flat panel Plasma TV, Mi Box Android TV, Sony Blue-ray DVD, and stereo. The master bathroom includes a walk-in closet, double sink changing area which leads to the back bathroom with a corner whirlpool tub, two head walk-in shower and toilet. The walk-thru master suite office area currently has two twin beds and a a desk.

At one end of the first floor is the large eat-in kitchen which opens to the expansive great room (26' x 29'). At the other end of the first floor is the formal dining room, which is now used as a sitting room and office, a first floor bedroom with a queen bed, and a combination full bathroom and laundry room across the hallway. The front to back entry hallway leads to the 1st floor queen bedroom, full bath/laundry room, sun-room (w/ dog door), the fenced in backyard, flagstone patio and fire pit.

Terrific place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 14 plus dogs stay for the weekend. The house and grounds couldn't have been better!

Huge comfy house, well stocked with everything we could've needed. Plus an amazing private yard. Close to Portsmouth, NH as well as several great beaches and parks. ****Definitely recommend this home!

Great open floor plan - great with dogs

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 4 couples rent Scott's house for the weekend with our collective dogs. And, there was plenty of common space for us to hang out. And, there were more than enough bedrooms with good sized, quality beds. We look forward to renting it again!

Scott was very helpful and flexible in terms of checking in and out.

Huge House

  • 5 of 5

Scott was a great host and this house had everything we needed. There was a large living room with an open floor plan to the kitchen. This was great for the group to hang out. There were so many beds also and the place was clean and inviting. I would recommend!

Great location. Bizarre experience

  • 2 of 5

The house is in a perfect location. Close to shops and great for dogs. Upon arrival, everything seemed great. We had to tell the owner, respectively, to leave, as it was a girls weekend and he was making us uncomfortable. When we arrived, later than checkin time, the house was not fully cleaned and the owner was there cleaning hours after we arrived. There were also leaks theough the kitchen ceiling we had to cater to all weekend. Overall, it was a successful girls weekend because we were all together.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately for these ladies, I was running late on my cleaning due to some maintenance issues that needed attending. As usual, I was there to greet them as they arrived just after the usual 3:00 PM check-in time . I usually spend about 30 minutes with my guests as they arrive to walk them through the house and show them the details and make sure they they know where everything is and how everything works. It unfortunately took longer than usual and I still had the bathrooms to clean. Once the bathrooms were finished, I checked in with the ladies to make sure they knew how everything works and had everything they needed. I still had the back porch, patio, and walk-ways to clear of snow, and sand and salt for their safety and the dogs safety. Unfortunately, I was not aware until the end, that they felt uncomfortable having the owner there. I was just trying to make sure everything was perfect for their weekend and did not realize I was in the way. Due to the heavy snow I did not finish the show removal, sand and salting until 7:00 pm, knowing we had another storm arriving the next day. I asked them to call me if they needed anything and let me know If they needed me to come by over the weekend to clear snow if it got heavy. The next days storm was not as severe, and since I did not hear from them, I thought it better that I not bother them with the snow removal (only a couple of inches). They knew they could call me at any time if they needed snow removal or had any other issues. Unfortunately, they did not call me when they had an issue with ice dams. I had a problem with ice dams 2 winters ago, but had a whole new roof put on the house this past Spring (2016), so I thought everything would be fine. I texted them on Sunday morning to let them know of another snow storm arriving that afternoon. I had given them a late check-out ahead of time for 2 PM, but texted them to let them know they could stay later or even overnight for free if they did not want to drive in the snow. No mention of any issue of water leaking in the kitchen window and kitchen ceiling. They said they would be leaving at 3 PM and would let me know when they left. I did not get any notice from them when they left. I decided to check on the house during the storm that evening, finding the ice dam issue. Fortunately it was isolated to the kitchen window, counter, & ceiling. It would have been nice to know earlier, since I could have shoveled the roof above and stopped the leak.

Guests must extinguish and properly dispose of cigarette, cigar, and pipe waste products in the metal trash can provided in the back yard. Aluminum cans and glass bottles must not be used as permanent waste receptacles, as they must be recycled by Kittery Municipal Ordinance.

Kittery Municipal Ordinances require that all aluminum and tin cans, glass bottles, and plastic bottles and containers be separated from household trash, rinsed, and recycled. All clean paperboard and cardboard must also be recycled. The property owner requires that all aluminum cans and glass or plastic bottles be segregated and placed in the recycling trash cans marked for cans and bottles.
