Very clean and comfortable B&B right outside of Portsmouth. About a 10 minute walk. Excellent breakfast and well appointed rooms. Little extras like cookies and lemonade in the afternoon. Felt at home

The Inn keeper Lynn is sweet and truly accommodating. The Inn is a gorgeous victorian that is elegant and welcoming. We stayed in the Dido room on the second floor great pressure for the shower. Nice kingbed and a fridge and sitting room right outside our door. The bedrooms are all decorated very pretty, comfortable furniture and wood floors. Breakfast... More

A large, lovely, nicely maintained Victorian Inn located in Kittery, Maine. Conveniently located and within walking distance to downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Restaurants and history abound. We'd flown from California for a fall foliage trip and had made advance plans with innkeeper, Lynn Bowditch, who couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Upon our arrival we were greeted personally, given... More

Warm greeting with warm chocolate chip cookies and port wine. Atmosphere, food, accommodations, and hospitality are all top notch. Very relaxing, comfortable, and special! This was our second visit from Florida and we plan to return.

The house is in a wonderful location, close to the Kittery outlets and downtown Portsmith. The house is a large beautiful Victorian with a spa attached. I thought the weekend was very relaxing. The one negative I have to say is we had a couples massage booked for Saturday an they changed it to Friday with out telling us. This... More

Every detail is taken care of at Portsmouth Harbor Inn and Spa. Lynn was extremely easy to communicate with and the room we stayed in was an absolute oasis (top floor, room on the right). We also both received spa treatments which were in a very tranquil setting and the icing on the cake for our trip. The Inn is... More

We stayed at the Inn for one night on our way between Boston and Maine and were very pleased with the accomodation, facilities and warm welcome shown to us. The bed was a large Queen size and very, very comfortable! There were lots of small additions included in the cost, including home made biscuits, free coffee and sherry, use of... More

This place is very convenient to Portsmouth and Kittery. Breakfasts are fancy cooking. I would prefer to order something plainer. Also seating in room would be nice. All in all a good B&B experience. I like the in-town experience.

From the first phone call with Lynn to the departure, we felt welcomed and comfortable in our choice of this lovely inn. We are in agreement with the other favorable reviews concerning the attention to detail by the owners and staff. When we arrived we were greeted to the aroma of freshly baked cookies. Hot tea, sherry, port and caramels... More
