Speaking of which – make your reservations for Christmas Stroll Weekends in December and New Year’s Eve and Day.  They fill up quickly too!

Make your visit to New England memorable with a stay at our bed and breakfast in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Situated just a 10-minute walk into downtown’s Market Square, our B&B is your home away from home while exploring more than 380 years of New England history.

Located only an hour from Portland, Manchester, and Boston, Portsmouth is home to some of the seacoast’s best local shops, theatre and musical attractions, historic homes, and finest restaurants.

#1 Frequently Asked Question:  How far is the Inn from downtown Market Square and the Portsmouth shops and restaurants?  Answer:  10-15 minute walk or 1/2 mile.

About the Innkeepers:   Russ & I bought the B&B on November 22, 2013.  We have had a very successful third year – completed some renovations and are in the process of others.  Despite the drought, the garden really came through!  As we head into our fourth year, Russ and I (Meg) want to thank our guests, our friends, including all of you who have connected with us on social media, and local businesses and people who have been so welcoming and supportive.  Thank you!   Meg & Russ
