Two-level apartment in a 19th century townhouse in Historic Downtown Portsmouth. Guests have exclusive use of this space during their stay. Both levels are open to cross sea breezes from Portsmouth harbor just a few blocks away; the 3rd floor loft has a birds' eye views of historic buildings, open sky, and South Mill Pond, and is filled with warm woodwork. Second floor level includes kitchen, parlor, and second bath with clawfoot tub, trimmed in period woodwork.

The space
The property was the site of Daniel Webster's home which burned down in the Great Fire. This building was erected with required brick firewalls--exposed in the loft. The ornate and wide mouldings were produced at the mill that uses to sit across the street.

Where you’ll be

Portsmouth, New Hampshire, United States

Our building is in Historic Downtown Portsmouth--a National Historic Registry designation--and steps to dining, shops, theaters, and historic sites, and parks. Just two blocks from Market Square, but toward the quieter side so a bit less hubbub. The Black History Trail office is just across the street, Stawbery Banke 2 blocks east, one more block east to Prescott Park Gardens and Arts festival, and stunning African Burial Ground memorial 1 block west.

We do keep extra supplies and problem solvers (aka 🪠) in an accessible closet in the building, so please contact us if you need something so we can point you in the right direction or get it for you ourselves.
