We stayed here mid week last week and had a wonderful time. It is just out of the downtown (10-15 minutes) and certainly worth the walk, especially on a beautiful summer evening after a terrific dinner at any of the amazing restaurants in Portsmouth. The breakfasts were delicious and very filling--no need for lunch after the lemon mousse and tart we had one day. We stayed in the Noonday suite which has its own sun porch. Very nice for coffee in the morning or reading at night. I wish the sun porch had sheers or shades to give a little more privacy, especially at night. Russ and Meg are wonderful Innkeepers and we certainly will stay there again on our next trip to Portsmouth.
