Noonday, Guest House
A perfect choice for a romantic getaway in Portsmouth, this special room welcomes you with a sunny porch and private entrance. Savor an early morning cup of coffee on the sun porch in one of the two chairs. Or take advantage of the double bench seat and coffee table to enjoy a pre-dinner iced tea or glass of wine with friends while listening to the water fountain.
Inside, a plush king-size bed and antique mahogany writing table await you in the bedroom. The sitting area has a flat-screen TV, and two more armchairs. The private en-suite bathroom features a bathtub/shower combo unit. The original Chinese brush paintings that adorn the walls were done by a local artist and inspired the bed hangings. Providing an inviting alternative to traditional lodging options in downtown Portsmouth, this first-floor room is located in the Guest House and is one of our most sought-after rooms.
The clipper ship "Noonday" was a medium-sized vessel measuring 200 feet long. She made four successful trips to San Francisco during her short career. In 1863, carrying $600,000 worth of cargo to San Francisco, she struck a rock. All crew members escaped on lifeboats before she sank in 240 feet of water. Not a very exciting career, but the name reflected the brightness and sunshine we find on the porch of Noonday's room.
