Quidnet Island Cottage Waterfront with Deep Water DOCK!

  • 5 of 5
We are starting to make plans for this summer and can't help but think about the last one. This house, its location and its owners (Valerie and Jonathan) exceeded all of our expectations!

We are experienced renters who have high standards and this house and all that came with it was beyond anything we'd imagined. The house is situated on a spot like no other. It sits on a well-cared for landscaped property fronting onto the fascinating and beautiful Piscataqua River. There is a wonderful lawn that slopes down to the river with your own dock at the end. We were even able to find an affordable (small) boat to rent so we could explore the incredibly diverse back channels, harbors and rivers! We loved the beauty and serenity of the waterfront property and at the same time were within a 5 minute (walk) to downtown Portsmouth which is charming, vibrant and so inviting. This is truly the best of all possibilities in the area! The house’s owners are warm, responsive and a great resource for exploring the area, for places to eat, and things to do. The house itself is well-maintained, extremely clean (even for a clean-freak!) and supplied with all the elements that make your stay easy and fun from day one!

My husband and I have a ‘no-repeats’ policy on summer rentals which keeps us exploring more of our world -- but we are having a very hard time fighting the urge to return to Badger Island. Not sure if we'll actually be able to stick by the 'rules' this time! We may have to come back to this extraordinary house!

Activity and Interests

This unique waterfront location is minutes from Portsmouth, Historic

Strawberry Bank, Prescott Park, and dozens of gourmet restaurants!

Think about a Barbeque on the patio and front yard that gently slopes

to the water. This is a private Hideaway with beautiful lawn and

grounds. From the Dock or Mooring, you are 12 minutes to open Ocean.

The Isles of Shoals and Star Island are just 9 miles offshore, and

whale watching is popular nearby. York, Kennebunkport, Ogunquit are

short drives or boating day-trips. Local Beaches, recreation areas,

and ocean surfing are a short trip. Kayak via the back channels

to Pepperill Cove, Spruce and Chauncy Creeks, and the Rachel Carlson

Preserve, including Brave Boat Harbour, New Castle Island, Wentworth

by the Sea, and Forts Foster, Fort Mcleary, and Fort Stark are living


Up-river is Great Bay (one of the largest inland bays in the country),

the University of New Hampshire, and antique shops you will love.
