Beautiful, comfortable home. Perfect for our needs. Looking forward to returning next year!
"We (seven couples) rented this home for our church leadership retreat. The house was beautiful with brand new finishes. Everything was in excellent working condition. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could need short of your own food. The large dinning room table and comfortable bar counter allowed all 14 of us to eat together! The large living room provided a perfect space for our meetings and to watch the Patriots playoff game on the large flat screen tv! The smaller lounge on the second floor provided a nice alternative space from the first floor living room. All of the bedrooms were comfortable, tastefully decorated, and spacious. We enjoyed a beautiful sunrise both mornings from the third floor bedroom!
It was only a quick walk to the beach and short drive to Kittery, Portsmouth, and other incredible sight-seeing, shopping, and restaurant areas. Internet and phone service worked well. We will be putting down our deposit to return next year."

"A group of us spent a long weekend here and absolutely fell in love with the place!
The home is luxurious and grand but furnished to feel welcoming and cozy. Even with its custom finishes and modern updates, it has a unique, New England charm that matches the natural beautify of its surroundings. The property has it all -- a large outdoor space for dining, a lawn with garden flowers, a beach side picnic table shaded by surrounding trees, and steps down to a private stretch of beach. My favorite spot is the second floor balcony which has a stunning view of the water and is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or curl up with a book.
Frank is also a great host who was accommodating both before and during our stay. He came by to give us a tour of the house and answer any questions and didn't hesitate to come back again to change out a few light bulbs and install screens for the windows upon request. We can't thank him enough for the wonderful stay and look forward to staying again!"
