The SpaceThe room has two windows, a large closet, enough drawer space to unpack a large suitcase, and is big enough to set-up a blowup mattress if needed (a queen sized AreoBed). Recently installed, a 32in flatscreen TV with DirectTV cable feed, Bluray player, and a Hard drive packed full of movies from all genres! Guest AccessGuests will have access to essentially the entire house; kitchen (refrigerator and pantry space), bathroom (medicine cabinet space), basement (washer and dryer access), living room (nice big TV and sound system), and dining room (table that can seat 4-8 people). If you are bringing a pet, we recently built a picket fence so you can let your beast run free in the back yard and chase the chickens around. Yes, we have chickens and I bet we will have more than enough fresh eggs that can hard boil for you the night before upon request. Interaction with GuestsWe will always be available via text or phone call and will most often be home at night to help you if you have any needs. We welcome and will respect the full spectrum of interaction with guests. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is a very quiet circle in a wooded area with no street lights. We get essentially 'zero' through traffic. Getting AroundHeaded to UNH and don't have a car? There is a convenient Wildcat Transit bus stop less than a mile form the house, a nice walk through neighborhoods and passing the Newmarket Middle and High school on the way. Other Things to NoteA little more information about our dogs. They are very very very friendly Golden Retrievers and will immediately become your best friend! That being said, they will have been known to lick and jump up on people, until you tell them not to. They are well behaved and listen well to commands. We will remind you when you get here, but make sure you close the bathroom doors if you don't want intruders, they can't resist a free petting session when someone is on the throne.

The SpaceOriginally built in 1803 as a Boarding House, we sit part-way up a steep (~12% grade!) hill and overlook the beautiful Lamprey River. The house is typical of its era with level changes between most rooms, wide pine floors (that creak) in most of the house and incredibly steep, narrow stairs (9"rise x 8" tread - think carry-on luggage). In spite of a sturdy railing and additional handholds to help you up and down safely, our guest room is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues or concerns. Doors inside have thumb latches and do not lock. Our guest room is in center of the house and is quiet, cool in summer and warm in winter with 4 windows for natural light. Guest room has a cozy chair, many lamps and comfy easy space in which to read, write or work on our private WiFi network and your laptop. Every room of the house is furnished with well-loved antique bureaus, tables and chairs collected by Claudie's Grandmother as well as other vintage pieces we have added. These combined with original art, photographs, plenty of books, numerous stately and elderly plants plus a bit of cat furniture lend our home a casual, lived-in feel. Since we inherited 3 cats to join our existing pair I now strive to contradict the notion of being a Crazy Cat Lady. Seriously, the house is much cleaner than you would think (though cat hair does waft around in corners sometimes ;-]) and the air smells naturally fresh and clean (no artificial scents). All 5 cats are friendly and mind their own business unless you invite them to interact. (They are also 13, 14 and 15 years old.) Though clean our house is not suitable for anyone with pet allergies. Special arrangements may be possible for 2-3 additional guests in the downstairs Family Room. This is public space and contains a single fold-out couch and camping cots for extra family members able to sleep around cats. The room has doors that close for privacy though one must be left slightly ajar for said cats to come and go. These extra spaces are available only by special arrangement. Pricing for extra guests not sharing the double bed is $25 per person per night + $25 one-time cleaning fee. Price will show up as a "Special Offer" prior to you confirming your booking. Guest AccessWe provide food and beverages to start your morning right! We have cold cereals, fresh fruit and locally made sourdough as well as a gluten free grain usually in-house to share. Most days we have either green shakes, fresh sliced or diced fruit or baked apples. Most weekend mornings Claudie and Greg prepare something hot for breakfast to share. For other meals, fridge space is available and you are welcome to warm up left-overs from takeout for yourself. For longer-term guests, full use of our eat-in kitchen for cooking can be discussed on site. We anticipate people will respect our home and clean up after themselves. We have two lovely porches downstairs and areas of the yard available for you to use for reading, yoga, conversation and relaxing. Once you arrive you can park your car and walk or ride in and out of town with ease. We are one block off Main Street, 2 blocks from the Town Landing and a brief hill climb to town woods. Public Transit is 2-3 blocks away with access to UNH (~5 miles), Phillips Exeter Academy (~7 mi) and lots to do between here, there, Portsmouth (20 mi), Rye and Hampton Beaches (~15 mi), Dover (~10 mi) and White Mountains (~80 mi) and beyond. Interaction with GuestsOne or both of us work at home most days so someone will almost always be here during the day. We prefer to keep a quiet working atmosphere in the house much of the time. In spite of not wanting to be a Crazy Cat Lady, Claudie does work at home and spend much of each day with the cats. They are social and polite. Three cats greet most visitors, 2 of those may ask you if you like cats. If so they may sit nearby when you are downstairs. All 5 are over 13 years old and stick to themselves unless invited otherwise. We make sure there is breakfast food you like available for your stay and cook a breakfast to share on most weekends. We have lived in the area for decades and are active outdoors-people. We are happy to tell you about local sites, hikes, mountain bike rides, our favorite beaches and ski areas and may even share a local swimming hole or two(!) [if you are lucky]. We are both experienced yoga teachers, yoga therapists and outdoor enthusiasts. If you are interested in guided tours with us or others can be arranged. We are happy to socialize a bit at the end and/or beginning of each day or leave you alone as you prefer. Please let us know either way. The NeighborhoodWe are in a pocket neighborhood of an old mill town. Our neighborhood is quiet and very safe; our location feels like it is in the country and yet only one block from downtown. The town was designed and built to support people walking to work in the mills visible from our porch. Our former rooming house is located a block off Main Street, a block from the river and a block from town woods. Newmarket now hosts over 15 restaurants - all within easy(2-10 min) walking distance of our home so worry not about where to eat, drink or hang out for people watching or snacking no matter the time of day. Marelli's Fruit and Real Estate and the Newmarket Farmers Market at Newmarket High School make staying in town easier than ever! The Town Library, Stone School Museum and historic Stone Church are also within easy walking distance as are smaller historic displays in several mills' public areas. We have organic farms, corn (haunted and not) mazes and other countrified activities nearby. For trail enthusiasts we are ~3 miles from the Rockingham Rail Trail, ~5 from The College Woods at UNH, and ~7 miles from Fort Rock and Stratham Hill. For road bikers and runners we live on a favorite local 15 mile loop. We are able to help make arrangements for you to rent gear and/or arrange for guides once you arrive. Getting AroundWe are very convenient to functions at UNH in Durham as well as PEA in Exeter. We are 3 blocks from the Coast Bus stop at the Main Street Gazebo in downtown Newmarket. There are frequent, regular public buses north to Durham [Rte. 5] as well as another route [7] from Newmarket south to Stratham and Greenland. From Durham there are buses to Dover and Portsmouth and Rochester. Taxiis and rental cars are in Durham Portsmouth as is Uber and Zip cars. Making your way here from the C&J bus terminal in Portsmouth (~20 min by car) or the Durham Downeaster stop (~10 min by car) is easy. Biking in the area is fabulous - especially if you have a hybrid. It is 5mi to Durham (UNH) and Exeter (PEA) is ~7-8 mi away. The Rockingham Rail Trail is ~3 miles away and connects to Manchester and points west and north - great for biking, xc skiing, walking and "sledding". Water transit is available if you have your own kayak, canoe or SUP. It is 1 block to the Lamprey River and Town Landing so bring along gear or talk with us once you arrive to arrange for you to rent gear and/or guides to check out the river and fish or tour the lovely area around the Great Bay and the Seacoast. The beaches of Hampton and Rye are only 15 miles away. Other Things to NoteOurs is a pleasant, peaceful old house with many original doors. Most close with thumb latches and there are no internal doors that lock. External doors DO lock. Antique wooden floors are lovely to look at and sometimes are safest when wearing non-skid inside footwear - bring slippers! Our neighborhood is quiet and very safe; our location feels like it is in the country and yet only one block from downtown. 9% of our gross revenues go to pay NH Room and Meals Tax.
