Why Jan and John Hanks chose Portsmouth

We bought the property for the water and water view. The property is off the beaten track... sitting on the deck or from the inside looking out, watching the different species of birds fly or float by, (one morning I counted eleven swans passing by). Watching the ever changing skies from sunrise to sunset, brings peace to my busy life.

What makes this house unique

The home is designed for year round vacations. The home has water views from most windows.

This is one of the MOST beautiful places we have stayed at, in the 12 years of our retirement.

  • 5 of 5

First of ALL, Jan & john did an excellent job redoing their home. They tranformed a 1 storie home into 2 storie loft home. The home has the amenaties that will make your head spin.

...WOW!!!!!! You would see appliances in their kitchen, if you went to a gourmet restraunt....you would these appliances there.

The views from the front room and loft are magnificant.

If you do not fall in Love with this home in Portsmouth, NH., there is something wrong..

My wife and I retired teachers, Jan and Jon get a grade of

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Shore House is tucked away in a very quiet area of the bay. The amenities were great and we had everything we needed for our stay. The snacks and drinks were quite a welcome sight since we arrived in the evening after a very tiring day of travel.

Peaceful & Picturesque Escape

  • 5 of 5

Jan & John were excellent hosts and their property was exquisite. The home is thoughtfully crafted, nautically inspired & the views are breathtaking. We couldn't have asked for a better escape for our family over Memorial Day weekend. We were in town for a wedding in Bristol and this home was so conveniently located. Our daughter Eva enjoyed playing in the grass and looking over the bay. Thank you Jan & John for your hospitality!

Terrific waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely house on the water. The house itself is quite charming and extremely well appointed. The views of the water from the house are incredible. It was a bit chilly for our visit, but we hope to return sometime in warmer weather to experience the full effect of being able to spend significant time outside. Jan was very accommodating and welcoming and provided a number of special welcoming gifts that made our stay even better. The house is located about 25 minutes from Newport and also fairly conveniently located to Providence where we flew in and out of. I can't recommend this house enough. We've stayed at many vacation properties over the years and this definitely ranks among the best.

My wife and I have stayed in the Shore House several times. As always, we enjoyed a delightful visit this trip. The location can't be beat: perched on the water's edge, with dramatic views of Narragansett Bay and the Mount Hope Bridge, close to services, and an easy drive to many wonderful destinations. The house is elegant, spacious, spotless, and very comfortable. Best of all, the hosts are knowledgable, professional, helpful, and friendly!
