I was fortunate to be able to visit the Warner house during a garden tour last month and was glad that I did. The volunteers that staff the house, both inside and out are extremely informative and gracious. The inside and outside areas house many vintage items and pictures. The volunteers wear period dress and even play croquet in the... More

Our rainy day tour of Portsmouth Historic Homes started here at the Warner House. It was beautiful. Our tour guide was very knowledgable. The murals on the walls going upstairs have their own story and much about the residents and time period can be derived from it. The house decor lets you in on how people lived at the time... More

We toured this house after so many years of driving by it. I was seriously surprised with how well preserved this home is, nearly unchanged since 1718. Every room has original furniture, some of which was hand crafted in Portsmouth. There is one piece on the second floor that should be in a museum, and because it is not, one... More

This home was the 2nd oldest of the homes we visited in Portsmouth. It was built in 1716. Overall the interior of the home is much darker with lots of green and brown colors with dark hand covered woodwork. The are large murals on several of the walls. They offer guided tours which take about 40 minutes. Admission is $6/person.... More

This classic colonial house located right downtown in Portsmouth is a wonderful trip back in time. We especially enjoyed the beautiful gardens and the little girl's room upstairs. Wonderful docents are on hand to take you back to the time the wealthy Warner's lived there. This is educational and fun for the whole family.

What an amazing story and home. See the Warner House! The guide is amazing and the decor is so New England that you'll be transported in time. The tour doesn't take long so if you're short on time, definitely stop in.

We love American history & Portsmouth has many lovely homes to explore. Take the time to look up the historic homes, they all have a interesting story as well as beautiful gardens. Best seen when gardens in bloom!

A visit to this house is a step back in time! The Warner House offers walk-in, guided tours exploring different periods of family occupancy room by room. Jeff our guide was well informed about the families who lived there over the years. Rooms had been decorated and furnished with some items returned from descendants of the original families who lived... More

Felt unwelcome from the moment we walked in. The tour guide obviously wasn't very happy about giving a tour for just two people, but we paid the same amount as anyone. The tour was pretty lame, unfortunately. Some antique furniture, but only a very few original to the house. Hardly any information about the sparsely furnished rooms. The only thing... More

The building is great but the interior is pretty drab and could be enlivened relatively easily. There are only a few rooms and the items on display seemed less numerous than at my last visit. The murals are a bit of a letdown.
