Photos and Description of the Rye vacation cottage rental

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Cozy Bluebird Cottage is a sunny sanctuary bordering a soothing wildflower meadow, a two minute stroll to a gorgeous, mile-long sandy beach! Buckets of sunshine pour through the windows -- you get all day sun in the cottage. Lounge in the adirondack chairs along the little meadow to greet the sun in the morning, and then when you come home from the beach move the chairs to create a cocktail circle to watch the sun set over the west marsh. The cottage has just been refurbished and decorated in colorful but chic cottage style by an accomplished interior decorator -- unexpected touches and details abound and are meant to put a smile on your face! New visitors describe the cottage as 'a happy house,' 'stunning,' 'irresistible,' and 'delicious!'

It is small but oh so cozy and delightful. Two bedrooms, one bath, a sweet kitchen, stylish living room, a big screened porch where the breezes waft through, the songbirds in the meadow serenade you and where cocktails by sunset or moonlight beckon.

Stroll on the sand to dinner at the best and coziest restaurant on the Seacoast -- the beloved Carriage House -- then walk home along the water's edge with the moon lighting your sandy path. Fabulous Portsmouth is 15 minutes away with all it's colonial history, bustling seaport, world-class restaurants, river walk bars (the famous 'Decks'), boat rides, the acclaimed Music Hall, theatre, live music, nightlife, Prescott Park outdoor concerts and plays, summer festivals, historic Strawbery Banke and SO much more!

But of course the main attraction is the beach -- considered by some to be the best beach in New England! The tide goes out 100 yards to create a seaside paradise where kids can play wiffleball, build sandcastles, boogie board or surf while the adults walk from end to end for a great workout. The fantastic Summer Sessions Surf Shop is right down the road, where you can take surf lessons, rent boards, learn to paddle board, grab a frothy cappuccino, browse the hip clothing assortment or just people watch! Serious surfers gather at the far end of Jenness at a spot called Sawyers Beach. There is something for everyone at our fabulous, mile long beach!

A grill and a picnic table, plus the adirondack chairs, create a perfect oasis for sunset cocktails or a summer barbeque along the verdant meadow.

So grab your surfboard, your picnic basket, your birding glasses, your sunscreen and and create memories at magical Bluebird Cottage!

Jenness Beach

Seacoast New Hampshire is a vacation playground all year round -- truly! Summer is incredible, as you will see described below. The beach, the city of Portsmouth, the history, etc. Fall has the amazing foliage -- which wows me every year. Spring is sweet and green and great for long walks on the beach, antique prowling, eating in Portsmouth, visiting historic homes, photographing the natural beauty. And winter brings good skiing only an hour away, or brisk walks in snowstorms with the dog! Please note there is no washer or dryer because this is an old beach house.
