A UNIQUE LODGING EXPERIENCE. Our studio apartment-style rooms feature fully-equipped kitchens and in-room laundry. Whether you need a home base for visiting the Portsmouth area, are in town for work on an extended stay, or are even considering a move to the area, we invite you to experience New Castle and the Seacoast like a local. CONCIERGE SERVICES You like your independence, but sometimes you need an insider. We provide personal concierge services for all our guests during their stay with us. Looking for the best sushi in Portsmouth? Want to know where to rent kayaks to explore our islands? Want particular groceries delivered to your studio? Need information about day trips to Portland, Boston, or Newburyport? Our local concierge has you covered. NEW CASTLE & THE AREA Off the coast of Portsmouth, New Castle is New Hampshire’s smallest, easternmost town comprised entirely of islands. A quiet coastal town of just 968 residents, New Castle offers historic sites, lighthouses, beaches and outdoor activities within the serenity of a small New England village. We're just a scenic, five-minute drive to lively downtown Portsmouth – with extensive shopping, nightlife, entertainment and over fifty renowned restaurants. Directly across the banks of the Piscataqua river you will find yourself in Maine’s southernmost town of Kittery. An eight-minute drive from New Castle, this seaside town is full of eclectic boutiques, art galleries, and hip restaurants. Fresh-caught Maine lobster is a must during your visit!

Every year my daughter and I fly to New England (from Colorado) the first week of December to explore the REAL east coast. Airline prices are lower, but best of all, we can experience some of the best of the best lodging at a 'quiet season' rate. This past December we chose the

My husband and I had no knowledge of what was good/bad in New England and we wanted our 30th wedding anniversary to be perfect. Well, let's just say that our initial plan needed some quick and serious revision when we discovered that the hotel we booked in Portland, Maine was

First, we stayed here off season for one night. We liked that it was in a residential area which is quiet. But, it is a ride to the center of Portsmouth. The room itself is nicely appointed. Our room was in the back of the house and we didn't have a good view of the water. It is

I can't say enough -- I booked via Hotel Tonight and the process was fast and easy. The owner was not on-site, but extremely responsive and accessing the property was super easy. The inn is beautifully, tastefully decorated and immaculate. We wished we would have stayed here

Exquisite design. Upscale and smart.
short walk to beautiful waterfront views
Only the top floor bedroom has a water view. I'm sure that the owner of the Inn purchase the same mattresses for all of the rooms (and the beds were great). We stayed on the 1st floor next to the patio. This Inn is awesome and Henry's market is right next door. Best breakfast sandwich that I have ever had. I truly love this Inn.

"We were in Apartment 1 on the ground floor which was beautiful !"
