Nature's Paradise in Maine-gardens, walking paths, birds and wild life with peaceful hangouts, horseshoes and more. The best name for the Guard Rooster gets a free night this fall.

Come relax in our charming 1840's home with warm Mediterranean colors and eclectic world art just five minutes from the Ocean, and walkable to Portsmouth over the new Memorial bridge or to Kittery Foreside, a fun, small downtown with restaurants and galleries.

Set on two acres of luscious gardens this smoke-free and pet-free home is the ideal New England vacation spot. Your room is peaceful, and spacious with closet, bedside table and plenty of room for luggage. Outside your bedroom is a reading nook.

The vibrant gardens and our quiet street make for the perfect evening stroll with views of the creek and loads of charming New England architecture. Or you might want to bike into Portsmouth to take in the quaint shops, gourmet restaurants and fun coffee shops.

Just off I-95, this New England home is three minutes to historic Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Kittery, Maine or 10 to York beach. Shop the outlets for great bargains or take an easy 45 minutes jaunt to endless entertainment in Boston or Portland, Maine. You'll also be an hour from the mountains for hiking, boating or nature discovery. Kayaking or skiing your thing? Just ask for the best locations.

Spacious room features Queen bed with 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets , Turkish towels, and access to a fully equipped kitchen Vitamix blender and Juicer . A welcome basket will contain towels, and a few surprises. Ample brochures of surrounding activities, places, shopping mountains and more. Library contains extensive collections as well as travel books, cook books and fiction.

Oil and acrylic paintings from local and Central American artists adorn this room that includes wifi, washer/dryer, kitchen, and use of the flat-panel TV in the living room. The luxurious bath with large soaking tub is on the first floor. Guests rave about it. Convenient and super safe off-street parking. You'll enjoy the peace and quiet, and maybe take in the river view on your bike or an evening stroll. Great neighborhood.

Each morning there will be coffee, tea, juice, cereals and some kind of fruit and variable protein choices. Or you can request "Pamcakes", eggs, or smoothies the night before. You can help yourself to tea and coffee throughout your stay. My goal is to provide a welcoming and warm home for you, and to enjoy your company.

I hope this will be your favorite home away from home.

Pam is a super host and it's very clear why. The description of the place is spot on. She is very welcoming, an excellent communicator, and will go out of her way to meet all of your needs. She is also very knowledgeable of the area to include the food scene and is a well versed traveler herself making her a great resource. Our first Air BnB experience was this one and couldn't be happier. As far as the house goes it's in a quiet area and very comfortable. The pictures do a good job representing what it looks like in person. The most relaxing part of of stay in Kittery in fact was the first morning drinking coffee on the patio. Stay here while in Kittery! You won't be disappointed.

I enjoy people and learning what makes you unique. I have traveled extensively and open to cultural differences. I travel for service work to Nicaragua twice a year, and consulted to the Special Ed directors of Belize for 2 years. Upon their request I wrote them a manual for the Deaf and hard of hearing. This manual is used in their classrooms around the country. My motto is "Kindness, kindness, kindness". I look forward to welcoming you into my home where you will become part of our family.

Looking for a special spa getaway? Like to learn how to live/cook with no gluten or no dairy? I can share a farm to table lifestyle with you..

Airbnb is a fantastic cultural and community building concept that has enriched my life endlessly. I look forward to knowing you and learning from you.
