Wonderful, hard working and attentive staff and very clean accommodations. So centrally located within minutes from the beach. Clean pool and grounds and a great restaurant just across the street with some of the... More

It's nice to feel right at home while vacationing! This property is clean, comfortable and well maintained. The owners are often seen chatting with guests-they are so friendly and really care about their property and their guests. The location is perfect! I'll never stay anywhere else in Hampton Beach!

We enjoyed our recent stay at one of the Mainsail cottages (and we did get an extra room for one night that was beautifully renovated and clean!). We can't say enough good things about the resort...clean, friendly and accommodating staff (owners on site and super friendly, including Clarence the resident dog), good location and a pool!!! The cottages are super... More

Well it was far from that! Our room was beautiful the furniture alone made a real statement and it was just remodeled,... More

We were in town to see a show at the Casino Ballroom and the Mainsail, although was not on the main road in town, was in a perfect location. The beach was just a block a away, but we didn't have the crowds from the main road. The... More
