Dream home in the country
The guesthouse is absolutely great. I really liked the decor, New
England country living. Peaceful, clean, with all the comforts of home.
Very nice! Owner is very responsive too.
Thank you, Hopi for a nice staycation and for always responding right away when we contacted you. We really enjoyed being so close to Applecrest Farm which was such a nice treat for breakfast, dinner, and picking up some homemade goodies. I will definitely keep your home in mind for our next staycation.
Didn't want to leave
A more perfect place to stay I can't imagine. Every
thing about the little house was perfect. From the wonderful kitchen, to the large and extremely comfortable bedroom and even the very high end washer and dryer. We looked forward to coming back every time we left. The view from the pea stone patio is lovely. We plan to return.
Perfectly delightful stay in a perfect location
Our visit to New Hampshire was all we could have hoped for, due in no small part to this charming house. The cottage was a perfect size for the two of us with plenty of room for daily activities. Its location was convenient to shopping, sightseeing, the beaches and all the other attractions of the area. Though it's on the same property as the owner's home, we had total privacy. Our host. Hopi, was a treasure. She helped us with directions, recommendations and suggestions but always left us our personal space. The house was very well equipped and well organized, the furniture was comfortable and the layout was thoughtfully arranged. We were totally pleased with our stay and will certainly be back,
Charming New England getaway
We enjoyed our 3 nights in this cozy small home. It offers all the comforts, a well-provisioned kitchen for cooking, full-throttle shower, comfortable bed in the airy upstairs, and is surrounded by the owner's lovely gardens and wooded area. The house is full of screened windows, which easily open for wonderful cross breezes, plus a bedroom ceiling fan. There are window air conditioners on each floor, but during our visit the weather was cool and we did not need them. In fact, we turned on the heat each morning. There is forced air heat in the kitchen and a baseboard heater in the living room. There is no heat in the bathroom and upstairs a portable heater is available. While very livable, the house is full of quirky fun touches that add personality. The sturdy railing on the stairs is a polished oar. The handle on the sliding bathroom door is a boat cleat. Vintage pottery, glassware and gadgets warm the kitchen. It's clever without being over the top. Equally wonderful is the house's location on beautiful Exeter Road, a short drive to Exeter, Portsmouth, Newburyport, and local beaches. A stone's throw away is wonderful Applecrest Orchard with its incredible produce and baked goods market, bistro and year-round family friendly activities. All in all, we loved the house, the location, felt it was a good value and would be happy to return. Excellent response time by the owner, who provided thorough, timely information and directions.
Beautiful setting, great garden to enjoy, lovely warm people and quaint cottage. Great location too
