Location

Car: Recommended

Snow skiing is only a a scenic 1 1/2 hour drive away in NH or Maine.

Please Call or email me to receive a brochure by post. A five minute walk to the Wallis Sands State Beach, affording vacationers a white sandy beach and lots of fun for the whole family. Across the Boulevard and nestled within the rocky coast, are secluded sandy beaches and fishing spots where the best fishing on the New England Coast can be found! Five minute drive to the quaint city of Portsmouth, NH, where one will find some of New England's finest restaurants and night life. With Boston or Portland only an hour away by car, one can easily plan a day or night trip! In autumn, during peak leaf season, reserve a week to enjoy the colors. The moon seems larger this time of year as it rises over the Atlantic!
