We are only an hour away, spend at least one day every weekend on the coast and ride our bikes by the Crown Colony - always saying "we should stay there". We did and really love the place! The view from the room is amazing with the deck for sitting with coffee in am watching the sun come up over... More

Husband and I were traveling through the area in the late afternoon September, 2014. We had stopped at the beautiful beach across the street from the Crown Colony to play in the late afternoon sun and spotted this vintage place. It was quiet, clean and friendly. A huge picture window overlooks the ocean from across the small road. I felt... More

Hands down our favorite place to go on vacation. We've been going annually to Crown Colony for several years and stay in one of the patio cabins. Sitting out in front with one of the best ocean views I've ever seen having our favorite beverages. Just can't beat it. Love the town of Portsmouth as well, plenty of good food... More

This is the place to stay. Perched on high land across Ocean Boulevard, Crown Colony offers spectacular ocean views and down home service. Bill is a friendly and hard working host, rooms are clean and spacious. Good access to Portsmouth and Hampton if you need to get out. And the price is awesome. Book well in advance. Great place to...

Came across this place quite by accident, driving from Portland Maine to someplace south to spend the night....getting discouraged by the hustle of Portsmouth, NH...too busy and nothing but major chains and sealed windows, sterile environments....then a breath of fresh air....Crown Colony showed up in our windshield! Funky, clean, a cat laying in the sun! Great price. Super casual. Almost... More

Just come home from a week at crown colony. Bill is always around and keeping close tabs on the property and guest needs. We always stay in a flagstone unit and love waking up to the sunrise. Unit is immaculate and perfect for our needs. Love it!

This location is FABULOUS! Not alot of frills but it's a beach cottage not a house! The room was clean and had free WiFi. Our side didn't have a kitchenette, but they have some units with them. The beds were a bit squeaky, but comfortable. The view is GREAT-open the blinds and there is the ocean. We went Memorial Day... More

This is not a ritzy place. However, it is clean, quiet, well managed, and the room we stayed in had a fantastic view of the ocean (it appears that most all of the cottages do as well). For the price it is far and away the best deal I have seen for lodging in a long time. We walked a... More

Our family absolutely loved staying at the Crown Colony Cottages. My husband is from Portsmouth, NH and we now live out of the area, and the clean, well situated group of cottages will absolutely be where we stay for future visits home. Waking up to the Atlantic Ocean directly in your view as soon as you open your eyes is... More
