Lynn is such a great host! She is very accommodating by providing excellent breakfasts, recommendations for local restaurants and attractions, and even moving our car for the snow removal during the storm! The Inn was just lovely; perfect furnishings and décor, impeccably maintained. My boyfriend and I stayed in the Velora room, of which I highly recommend with water views... More

We had a bedroom on the top floor, lovely furnishings and most important, a comfortable bed. The location makes a short walk to good restaurants and to the city of Portsmouth easy. It was also quiet in spite of its location near a major road. This was a perfect choice for the last night of a two-week trip.

This little B&B is one of the best we have ever experienced. Lynn is a master innkeeper who not only prepares a wonderful breakfast with fresh ingredients from her garden, but also helps guide you to points of interest and local restaurants. The Inn is clean, well-appointed, and cozy. It is perfect for only one night if you are on... More

Lynn the Innkeeper was very friendly, funny, and helpful and went out of her way to recommend delicious local restaurants to us and even made an evening dinner reservation for us at one of them. Our room and especially our bed and bedding were wonderfully cozy and comfortable.

A great place to stay with a short walk to Portsmouth where we had fun at First Night. Breakfast was certainly a highlight along with good coffee and fun company. Comfortable and nice rooms. I highly recommend it!

Fabulous place to stay with comfortable rooms in an old brick colonial home. The spa in the attached barn offers great services. Lynn's breakfasts are delicious and unique and she cooks according to your dietary needs. We make a return trip every spring to visit the shops, restaurants, and historic sites in Portsmouth, NH. The location of the inn is... More

My wife and I stayed and enjoyed every minute. The breakfast was delightful with fresh fruit and a creative approach you would not find at a hotel. The bed was very cozy. I loved the tea station, and I have not been so relaxed in years. My wife loved the bath tub.

We had a blast. The Inn was quiet and was a nice walk to downtown Portsmouth. The Inn Keeper was very helpful with dinner reservations and was very nice. The atmosphere was perfect for a night away with my husband.

My husband and I stayed at the Portsmouth Harbor Inn and Spa for our anniversary. We found the room to be cozy and comfortable, with pleasant bathroom amenities. There was a sitting area with a fridge available for patrons to share, and complementary cold water. The grounds of the inn are landscaped with beautiful flowers and herbs that the innkeeper...

My sister and I (ages 17 and 23, respectively) stayed here while we took a peaceful trip to Portsmouth. We really enjoyed our stay! The inn is a gorgeous old house, with furniture to match. The common areas are really nice to spend quiet time in after hitting the amusement park, the water park, or the historical area. Breakfast was... More
