My wife and I have been staying at the Crown Colony every summer for about twenty years. There is no place along the New Hampshire coast with a better view of the ocean, and there is no better feeling than listening to the waves hitting the rocks as you go to sleep at night. While it has always been a...

Stayed there once before, seemed to be pretty nice with great view. Attempting to stay again this summer but so far haven't been able to make contact, sent check for full payment but haven't heard anything back yet, check still un-cashed, starting to get a little nervous, hoping check made it okay and we are good for this summer...Just love...

What more could you want? We had an event to go to in Rye in 2014 and didn't want to drive up at the crack of dawn so we booked a night here. Couldn't have been more pleased! We will be there for two nights this year and are SO looking forward to it!

☆☆☆☆ Have been staying here for 15 years. Truly the best value and scenery on the Seacoast. Quiet, refined, and clean. You won't be disappointed. Highly recommend. Close to beach and Petey's restaurant. ☆☆☆☆

We are only an hour away, spend at least one day every weekend on the coast and ride our bikes by the Crown Colony - always saying "we should stay there". We did and really love the place! The view from the room is amazing with the deck for sitting with coffee in am watching the sun come up over...

Husband and I were traveling through the area in the late afternoon September, 2014. We had stopped at the beautiful beach across the street from the Crown Colony to play in the late afternoon sun and spotted this vintage place. It was quiet, clean and friendly. A huge picture window overlooks the ocean from across the small road. I felt...

Hands down our favorite place to go on vacation. We've been going annually to Crown Colony for several years and stay in one of the patio cabins. Sitting out in front with one of the best ocean views I've ever seen having our favorite beverages. Just can't beat it. Love the town of Portsmouth as well, plenty of good food...

This is the place to stay. Perched on high land across Ocean Boulevard, Crown Colony offers spectacular ocean views and down home service. Bill is a friendly and hard working host, rooms are clean and spacious. Good access to Portsmouth and Hampton if you need to get out. And the price is awesome. Book well in advance. Great place to...
