A nautical look and feel is what this coastal home away from home offers. A detached from the main house in-law apartment is the perfect get away. Located directly on the water, on an estuary called Spinney Creek, part of the Piscataqua River. Bring your kayak, fishing rod, or sit back enjoy a cold beverage and watch the sunsets by the fire pit. Best water views ever. It is 1.5 miles to downtown Portsmouth, NH and less then 1 mile to the beautiful rejuvenated downtown Kittery.
“What a blessing to have found this lovely guest house in which to unwind after our son’s wedding! Steve and Cathy have created and furnished this little home for comfort and relaxation. Although it is beautifully cozy, it is surprisingly open and spacious. I had room for my morning yoga stretches either in the living room or in the surprisingly large bedroom. We cooked breakfast in the well-equipped kitchen and (since it was too chilly for the porch) ate it in the little breakfast nook with the sun pouring through colorful trees. The chairs and sofas were perfect for curling up and reading (always one of our criteria!) or watching the baseball playoffs. Yes, the experience of Spinney Creek from the porch, the living room, and bedroom is as glorious as the other reviewers have said! Because of the changing weather, our views included a magnificent sunset, a wall of fog, hours of serene water where shorebirds glided, and some slightly more active water as the wind picked up – as well as the famous Spinney Creek oyster beds in the distance. Although this guest house seems a tiny oasis hidden in the middle of nature, it is also a perfect spot from which to explore. Lively Portsmouth is just across the bridge. We spent our days exploring the southern coast – the Marginal Walk in Ogunquit, Kittery Point, Odiorne State Park in NH -- hiking well-tended, beautiful paths and venturing out onto coastal rocks that make this area such a geological miracle. Peak leaf season and water -- everywhere was beauty. Thank you, Steve and Cathy, for your warm and lovely hospitality! We would love to return in years to come! We need more time on the porch!”
The perfect gateway to the NH and ME Seacoast! We are located a few minutes from the highway, ten minutes from the beach and 60 minutes from Logan Airport. Break up your drive to Baxter State Park, or Acadia. Visit nearby Portsmouth, NH (10 min.), Mt. Aggie (10 min) or the Kittery Outlets (5 min.) We are minutes from everything, and yet in a tranquil, wooded setting!
“This place is cozy and pretty, the bedrooms are good-sized, the location is fantastic! So close to beaches, restaurants, shops, etc. Robin and Peter are friendly and respond quickly to messages, and have clearly put a lot of thought into making the space as welcoming as possible! The "book of local secrets" is especially fantastic!”
Water view cottage, very close to downtown Portsmouth. Easy 20 minute walk to Kittery's Foreside and downtown Portsmouth, NH. Perfect for a couple who wants peace and quiet or a night out in town.
“Wendy’s place was absolutely perfect! The house was sparkling clean, she provided us with every little thing we could have possibly needed, and not to mention the location is absolutely beautiful! She left us all sorts of options of adventures we could take, and places to eat! It was just perfect! I highly recommend “The Little House”, it’s the perfect getaway!❤️”
