This is a beautiful bed and breakfast to stay in. I just needed a place to stay for one night and it was perfect. The breakfast in the morning was just what was advertised and perfect for me. I had control of the temperature in my room which was a plus in the winter and there was an extra blanket out as well. Everything was stocked in the bathroom. Mary is very kind and was quick with a restaurant recommendation when I asked. I would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in the area.
Unique,historical AND comfortable.Wonderful hosts.Great location for UNH,Beaches,Portsmouth,Lakes and Hiking.Also great for running & cycling!My stay was All Positive-already planning my return! Delicious Fresh fruit for Breakfast.AND WiFi was Fast!
Had the good fortune to find your lovely bed and breakfast. I grew up in a true antique in Massachusetts- staying at The Pines was being at 'home.' Quiet, quaint and welcoming! We will definitely return. Great location for anything connected to UNH, the beach, shopping, farm stands, antiquing, etc! Thank you for a wonderful week!!!!
If you are looking for a B & B with totally straight walls and perfect paint, this is not the one. However, if you are looking for a home that has been in the same family for generations and that exudes charm, attention to detail, cleanliness and friendliness, the PInes Guest House is for you. The hostess was interesting, helpful and charming as were some of the UNH graduate students who board there for short periods of time. Pictures of the family harken back to the 1700's including one of an ancestor named "Federal Constitution." Rooms are named after family members. The art collection is eclectic and fascinating including some done by the host. Very convenient to UNH.
I had difficulty contacting the owner multiple times. I had the sense that she screens the calls rather than answer them at the time. The entry door is narrow as are the stairs. It was hot and humid and the air conditioner in our room struggled to cool the second floor room we occupied, which was overly crowded with furniture. It was difficult to get hot water in the shower and there were no glasses in the room for a drink of water. None of the guest rooms doors close completely without being slammed shut. We were unfortunate to have some inconsiderate children staying in a nearby room who were in and out of the room repeatedly late at night and early in the morning so it was quite noisy. Although we were advised of the time that breakfast was being served when we appeared in the dining room at the appointed time it appeared that breakfast had already been served with dirty plates lying out on the table and the host nowhere in sight. Breakfast appeared to be toast, dry cereal and fruit. Probably our most disappointing B & B experience to date.…
