Dashing Wave, Guest House

Set at an angle at the end of the hall, the door to Dashing Wave beckons you in to see the various welcoming features of this room. Peek around the corner near the bed, there you'll find a separate sitting nook with two arm chairs adjoining the bedroom, perfect for reading or watching the flat-screen TV. 

Picture Alert! This sunny, corner room now has sumptuous sage green walls.  We can't wait until the new photographs are available in late April, but you can get a sneak peak at our amateur photos at the bottom of this page.  Meanwhile, the room amenities remain unchanged, you will just see different colors and a new queen bed when you check in.

Dashing Wave was a medium-sized vessel, measuring 184 feet in length and weighing 1239 tons. She was built by Fernald and Petigrew and launched in 1853. Dashing Wave was the same model as Sea Witch, which was launched a few weeks before, and was sold to the same owners, the Steven Tilton Co. John D. Fiske was her first captain and left the Piscataqua for Boston in September and later went to San Francisco. In 1858 she made her best San Francisco journey in 108 days. Dashing Wave made six of these runs in total. Although her final official voyage was in the spring of 1902, she might have sailed as late as 1910. She was one of the last clipper ships used for any kind of sea going service.

The Queen size bed with padded headboard is complimented by the tan Oriental area rugs that adorn the antique painted floorboards. This room features a private, en-suite bath with stall shower, and is located on the second floor of the Guest House.

Amenities: Queen Bed, Air Conditioning, Private Bath with stall shower, Wi-Fi, Flat-screen TV, Sitting Area

Favorite moments: Smelling the ocean breezes, watching kids dance downtown on Saturday night to live music. We had a lovely weekend. Liz & John, Vermont.
