“Cozy Cottages by the Sea”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

This was our second time staying at the Crown Colony.
The cottages are clean and neat. The view is incredible!
Bill welcomes you to his place and makes you feel right at home!
Looking forward to our next visit 2012!!

Arrived and was greeted by Bill McCann the owner. Felt at home immediately. The apartment where we stayed was very clean, neat and homey. Totally done in the motif of New England. Very comfortable. Close to the beach, resturants, and Hampton Beach. Met many nice people, and had a very enjoyable time, while there. In fact, plan on going back next year. The apartment had coffee pot, microwave, stove and frig. Bill couldn't of been nicer or more accomodating.

Room Tip: I don't think think that there would be a bad place to stay while there. Views of the ocean all...

We have been going to the Crown Colony for many many years.. It's a family owned spot and we feel like family. So many of the folks we talk to are also repeat coustomers. It's not fancy, but right across the street from the ocean, with a beautiful view of a sunset most mornings. They have several types of rentals. We Rented one of the flagstone cottages this time and now it's my favorite spot. It has a fridge, stove top and microwave, so a few nights we cooked in. Also love the outdoor patio set-up so we can sit out in the morning under the unbrella to have coffee or sit out at night and just chat under the stars! They have web site so look them up.. Call Billy and book a night or week!

Well maintained property ~ neat as a pin. Super clean motel rooms with ocean views overlooking the Isle of shoals. Also has cute little cottages sitting on a knoll. Crown Colony is no frills ~ but we like it that way. It's rated as an economy property in the AAA book. Bill one of the owners is very nice and leaves hand written notes welcoming guests if he's not around upon your arrival. It's kind of like Mayberry ~ your room might be ready and open with the key inside! We enjoyed the Crown Colony very much and definitely plan on going back.

My husband I and traveled to Rye so I could DJ a sweet 16 party. The hostess made our reservations at the Crown Colony. The owner Bill was very nice and the views from here can't be beat. If you want wifi or a phone, choose another place, but for a relaxing stress and phone free visit, this is THE PLACE !!
Clean as a whistle and many fine restaurants in the area, I recommend the Carriage House...16.00 - 24.00 per entree and worth every pennny !! The seafood chowder is to die for !

My husband and I have stayed at Crown Colony for over thirty five years. It has always been delightful. The McCanns are wonderful hosts. It's the perfect place to vacation. So much to do in the area including restaurants, museums, beaches, and more.

I Stayed at Crowne Colony for a week in July. What a wonderful location... Ocean, Isle of Shoals, local beaches, restaurants, and very clean, comfortable accommodations. The owners were friendly. Nice location for many attractions: Hampton Beach, Portsmouth, Water Country and a great spot for long walks along the beautiful NH coastline.
