Quintessential Maine home featured as cover story in Accent Magazine (See Cover Photo). Very private situated on the Piscataqua River with access to the Atlantic Ocean.

Home is located directly on the Piscataqua River, about five miles from Portsmouth, NH where the Piscataqua joins the ocean. Boats can go directly to the ocean and use of a mooring at the house is included. The river is tidal and makes for very good swimming (the water is generally 10 to 15 degrees warmer than at the ocean) with safe, gentle current anytime between half and full high tide.

This wonderful residence is a remodeled home on the banks of the Piscataqua River. It oozes charm and character in a wooded setting, yet is only minutes away from Maine beaches and the historic seaport city of Portsmouth, NH. We were especially pleased with its outdoor environment: the pier, deck, flagstone patio, spacious lawn, and screened-in porch facing the river.... more

The cottage was a home away from home. It was a beautiful spot. It was quiet and very relaxing. In addition to being clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated, it was equipped with anything and everything we needed for our stay. There are several areas around the cottage to sit and relax and enjoy the river views. The location was private... more

We recently made a trip to the East Coast and decided to find a centrally located property rental so that we had a home base. This comfy, cozy Cape Cod was perfect. It was clean, comfortable and we felt at home immediately. Every room was interesting because of the decor and artwork. It gave us a sense of the owners... more
