My wife and I stayed at the Arbor Inn B&B. It was easy to find and located in a wooded residential area not far from shopping and dining. It was also quite close to downtown Portsmouth. The inn was beautifully appointed and our room was very comfortable. The common areas were also very nicely furnished and very clean. Our hostess... More

Lovely home in a very pretty setting. Surrounded by tall oaks and pines. Had a perfect few days. Hosts were wonderful. Breakfast outstanding. There is plenty to do nearby. Beaches are within a half mile.Portsmouth is a beautiful city with lots of good restaurants and shops. Would definitely return.

We had a great stay at Arbor Inn and felt at home since the very first minute. Julie, the owner, kindly took care of us, serving delicious breakfast every day and sharing tips of routes and restaurants of the area. A perfect place to explore the wonderful surroundings!

This was my second stay. Julie does a great job! Her breakfast is always a treat and makes every stay special. The Pears with vanilla sauce were outstanding. The Inn is always kept impeccably. The fireplaces make the home memorable.
