New England Coastal Tour

... Along the beach side of the road there was a wide pavement area with a sound shell for performances, changing rooms etc. On the other side were numerous shops and stalls selling clothing, souvenirs and food - Wicked Willy's Seafood and Big Steve's Italian Sausage to name a couple. This was the public beach. Once back on the bus we drove past the residents' beach where people that own property can get sticker access to the quieter, less commercial end of the beach. New ...

Passing The President

... there dressed in period clothing to tell us about the cemetery, who was buried there, and some of the events of that day. He explained that none of the twenty hanged for crimes of witchcraft were buried in the cemetery. They were buried in shallow graves near where they were hanged. Those buried there were important people at that time like John Hawthorne. It was sad to think that all those people died due to false accusations. On the way out of town we took ...

Our Brief Stint in New Hampshire

A travel blog entry by jaredandjen

Thursday, September 1st

We headed out from the campground today to try to check out the small town of New Castle, NH. I read about it being a cute little town that isn't very touristy online. We drove to the town, but didn’t really have anywhere to park the RV. It definitely was a cute little town that wasn’t touristy at all. There weren’t any little shops for tourists, just lots neat looking houses right on the water.

In My Footsteps: Ipswich, Mass.

... the Great House. The farm is open sunrise to sunset all year long. The folks there recommend allowing yourself two hours to fully enjoy the farm and what it has to offer, possibly three hours if you are also partaking in the Appleton Farms Grass Rides. These are more than five miles of lush green paths which were originally designed ...

    Silver Anniversary


    We just spent 3 days at the Wentworth, to celebrate our 25th anniversary (a fact which we didn't share with management) and what a great decision! We booked an excellent "promo" rate which included a buffet breakfast, each morning. Our visit was during the NH school vacation, a week later than the all the neighboring states. All this may explain our wonderful experience. The hotel was very quiet and calm, almost empty. Breakfast was an excellent selection, including fresh cut fruit; which we always ate leisurely beside the windows.

    Great relaxing weekend


    Looking for a get-away close to the Boston area, we spent two nights at the Wentworth and enjoyed every minute.

    Loved it!


    What an amazing place! My boyfriend and I were looking for cozy Inn within a two hour drive of Boston and had read/heard great things about the newly renovated Wentworth. Everything was great...from the spa, to the workout room to the outdoor whirlpool (in late December!) to the oceanview room to the gourmet restaurant. All at a reasonable price, as well. We'll definitely go back! On the way home we did a leisurely drive on 1A along the coast. Very scenic - a great drive.

    Great for group gatherings


    Visited the Wentworth for three days in late November for a group conference after staying three days in early August. This gathering was for 50 but the Wentworth would be great for large or small groups. The rooms are lovely as always; my roommate and I had more than enough space and a balcony view of the Portsmouth harbor. Service at breakfast on one day was still slow but the buffet was sumptuous. Indoor pool - delightful and the outdoor jacuzzi a treat, despite the cool air when I got out! Hotel personnel made the stay very pleasant. Only disappointment - the waterside restaurant was not open (Lattitudes) although there was no note of that on website. Also note that some guest rooms are near to meeting rooms which could be a problem with late night meetings.

    Different in a beautiful sort of way


    Arrived late Thursday after Labor Day and were told that we were "upgraded" to a corner room on the 4th floor...pretty good view but not one of the best. Room was decorated beautifully, no less than 5 down pillows! It was unfinished though...unpainted mouldings, bathroom door and door trim were primed but still no finish coat of paint. The Latitudes restaurant was wonderful. Great food and a friendly staff. We enjoyed dinner there twice! Great location for sightseeing N.H. coast and southern Maine coast. Service in the main dining room was so-so at least for breakfast. Other services were great. The hotel has a wonderful indoor pool and spa area, outdoor jacuzzi and also an outdoor pool across the street by the marina. We found it very difficult to find the Hotel at night since we were unfamiliar with the Portsmouth area. Overall, great hotel, great stay, different in style from any Marriott we have stayed in. You will enjoy it there.

    Still testing its wings


    Just came back from a Labor Day weekend stay-my first stay at this hotel. Did get a good deal through the Marriot website-$179 per night ;per the site, for that rate nonsmoking rooms were not available but when I checked in, the front desk noted my nonsmoking preference as a Marriot Rewards Member & quickly honored it. They very courteous & on top of that got me a third flr room as I requested- it was gorgeous, decorated in a Victorian motif w/ a marble shower ( no tub), carved woods. The space was a little tight for a dble room(for 2) w/limited storage space. It was very clean,though. I got in late & there wasn't any self-parking area avail (wedding that wknd)so they provided complimentary valet parking. When I got to my room I realized I had forgotten to get rid off the styrofoam semi-filled coffee cup in the car but the next day, when I went to pick up my car it was gone-what service! Furthermore the area looked as if the fellow wiped it clean ! Breakfast was not as good as expected- I ordered it via Room Service-it was just not a good value. I chose to eat my other meals out as there are quite a few inexpensive gems in the area-for breakfast The Egg and I is around the corner on Rt 1A. The hotel is comparatively small & they are still under contruction outside. It was not as expansive inside as the old resorts usually are even though from the outside it looks as if it would be. Overall a good experience but I would wait a while before returning just to see what more they accomplish in the renovation. Staff was wonderful. Nice views from the even numbered rooms facing east.

    Grand hotel with modern luxury


    We spent 4 days at this beautiful hotel and it was an excellent combination of old world luxury with modern conveniences.

    Although the property exudes an air of elegance, it was not the least bit formal...typical of all Marriott resorts.

    The room was small, but very well-appointed. The heated bathroom floor was a nice touch.

    The only negative was the main dining room. While the service was excellent, they ran out of several starters and main courses. Food was well-prepared, but we expected more for the price. You will do better at a number of excellent restaurants in downtown Portsmouth, a short drive from the hotel.

    All in all, a beautiful and relaxing vacation.

    Almost perfect


    My husband and I spent 2 glorious nights in the beautifully restored Wentworth. Although there was still construction going on and the grounds were not quite up to speed, our stay there was just about perfect. Our room was exquisitely decorated with period reproductions and the bed linens were plush and plenty. We had a pleasant view of distant water and boats. The main dining room served an eclectic selection of foods to please almost any palate. Our meals were flawless. We both ordered the surf and turf. A petite filet on a bed of mashed potatoes topped with half a lobster tail and asparagus. The dinners arrived hot and the meats were cooked to perfection. The wait staff was unobtrusive and very pleasant. We also had an inaugural dinner at the new Latitudes bistro across the street from the main hotel. Again our meals were delicious and perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Not bad for opening night. This restaurant is on the Wentworth Marina and was a perfect spot for dinner or just a great place to relax and have a cocktail. We did have one problem with a gift certificate that my in laws had phoned in prior to our arrival to be used for our 20th anniversary dinner. When we received our check the certificate was not deducted. We waited until the morning to check with the front desk about the certificate. Judi looked in various places abut could find no record of my mother in laws call. But she assured us she would look further. We checked again in the afternoon with Stacie who also looked but could find nothing. That evening we spoke with the restaurant manager on duty and he too could find no record of the call.

    Beautiful resort


    Wow! It is very evident that much money was spent renovating this resort. We went with our 2 children ages 7 and 9. They appreciated the beauty of this place almost as much as we did. Highlights: the indoor pool and outdoor whirlpool were just lovely; the room was gorgeous and my husband said it was the most comfortable bed he has ever slept on; the restaurant was very nice and the food very good; trolley service to Portsmouth and the beach (kids loved this). We appreciated all the luxury of this fine hotel.
