Great house, lot of space, awesome entertainment/deck

  • 5 of 5

Came here for a bachelor party weekend, for the 2nd time in the past 2 years. The house is perfect for a group looking to get away. Plenty of beds and space for people to sleep and hang out. TVs and great sound system in every room. Sean couldn't have been more helpful, was easily available via text if we had any questions, he had air mattresses, sleeping bags, blankets, etc. Can't say enough of how great the house is, can't wait to come back again.

So just recently stayed at Sean's home. I definitely recommend the stay. We had five couples and our children, we all stayed and it fit us nicely.

Upstairs had two full beds and one nursery that could fit an air mattress. The master bedroom is HUGE, so you could technically fit two air mattress if you wanted just on that floor. There is four bunk beds in the basement that fit the kids nicely. If I had one recommendation when it came to the sleeping, would be to bring your own pillows, sheets, and extra blankets as we did. Not sure if Sean would have enough for a large party such as ours. And honestly its Sean's personal home so just felt more comfortable as far as cleanliness to bring ours next time around when we stay.

The main feature of the house is its Downstairs that features a movie theatre (AMAZING) and bar and game room. It was definitely a awesome piece to the home and where most of the time was spent.

Kitchen isnt the biggest so eating can be tough to sit a large group, unless its not winter and the seating is set for outside.

Now thats a whole other factor. Outside is beautiful, site is amazing, set on over 5 acres of land, great for a nature walk, having a fire outside, etc. Would love to see the land without snow all over it too :)

Sean has a sound system throughout the home, so you can hear music pretty much anywhere you are and even outside, was a really cool feature. Definetly ask for a a breakdown on how to turn on TVs, Music, etc... Sean you might want to leave a how to on many of your electronics... we had some issues turning on a basic TV LOL.... but Sean seems to be very Tech savoy... Me well not so much ;)

Another feature outside is the hot tub, however we did have a MAJOR issue when we stood. I would recommend that prior to the stay and upon arrival you check to see if hot tub is Clean, working properly, and does not have any funny smell. Sean was very accommodating due to our hot tub issue that we were unable to use, which he was gonna have it looked into after our stay to assure that it doesn't happen again. But again please make sure you look into this prior to your stay - its a great feature your paying for, so you want to make sure it meets your standards.

The home was very easy to get too... and some attractions near by for coffee, pizza, liquor, etc... Tubing and Sking was about 45 -60 minutes away.

Hope my review helps you for your future stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much, Christine, for your kind words! Your group and family was fantastic and I would welcome you back anytime in a heart-beat. I know you would love the property in the Spring or Summer, as there is plenty on the grounds to do, including nature walks on the brick-laid paths we've laid through the backyard and bridges over the brook. We also have a large koi pond we'd know your family would enjoy in the summer and a few fountains in the woods to sit and picnic around. :-) Definitely next time - so please make plans to come back! Sorry again for the hottub; I have already drained and refilled it post your stay and added all new chemicals. It will not be an issue again for any future stays...thanks to your feedback! Also great tip about a "cheat sheet" for the electronics. haha - yea, there is a lot of them so I'll try to have a short guide next to each device for future guests. Though I hope the walkthrough I did with your husband during the tour was at least partially helpful... :-) Thanks again for your kind words and for staying in my home and leaving it in such great condition upon departure. It is families like yours that make us happy to rent our home to people! Your family was a delight! :-)

We had a great stay at the house as we had 12 guests for a bachelor party and the house was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone that joined us for the weekend told me how much they enjoyed themselves and how perfect the house was for this occasion. Everything from the large back deck to the two bars,the movie theatre and the incredible sound system throughout the entire house, we enjoyed everything. Sean was very welcoming when I arrived and walked me through the property and explained everything in the house top to bottom. It is also a short cab ride away from downtown Portsmouth in which we took advantage of and had a lot of fun. I highly recommend renting this house if you are having anything from a large gathering to a small family vacation. You won't be disappointed.

Great place to host a party!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house to host a party at. There was plenty of space inside and out for having fun and sleeping. The kitchen and shower were nicely updated. There were two nice bar rooms, an awesome movie theater and a great sound system where you could play different music in every room. The deck was huge. The yard was large enough to accommodate outdoor games.

As for our host, Sean was very friendly, flexible and he kindly opened up his entire home to us. He let us set our own check in/out times, which was a huge plus. My first impression was that the pictures did not do this place justice!

Great for Large Parties

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of ten people for a bachelor party and this place was perfect! The property has a sizable deck and yard, which was great for playing games during the day. Also, the outdoor surround sound was awesome! The house is pretty secluded, but still only about 25 minutes from dowtown Portsmouth.

Sean was a fantastic host. He was at the house to show us arround and was very accessible to answer any questions that we had. The basement was not entirely finished from renovation when we showed up so he told us that he would refund some of our money. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here.
