It is not oceanfront or water view, although you can smell the fresh sea air! Spend your next vacation relaxing at the beach! (See map for exact location.) This cute little cottage is completely furnished with a full kitchen (NEWLY RENOVATED!) including a new stove and a new over-the-range microwave, a pretty new backsplash and all new cabinets, a full-size refrigerator, a toaster, coffee maker, blender, etc. It has expanded cable on two new flat screen TVs, free wireless internet, AC and heat, a gas grill, and a picnic table. We even provide a beach umbrella, beach buggy and beach chairs! The cottage also has a fantastic deck surrounded by flowers, with an umbrella table and chairs for relaxing and taking in the fresh sea air while having a refreshing beverage or dining 'al fresco'. The front bedroom has a double bed, the small middle one has twin bunk beds, and the back bedroom has a double bed, a new wall-mounted flat screen TV and a small en suite bathroom. This is a “shotgun style cottage” which means you must walk through one bedroom to get to the next. (Cottage sleeps 4 adults/2 children max.) Just bring your linens and paper goods, sand toys and a good book. Absolutely NO SMOKING or tobacco use of any kind (and NO 'Vapes' or e-cigarettes either) allowed anywhere on the premises, including the deck and yard! This is NOT a party house! We live next door. Parking for 1 car only on site. We are pet friendly and upon approval you may bring ONE quiet, friendly, well-behaved, fully vaccinated dog ($150 per week Pet Fee will apply). This beach house is ideal for 'Seniors' too, or anyone who has difficulty climbing stairs, as it is all on one level and close to the handicapped walkway onto the beach. This is a classic beach cottage, built by my parents in 1950. It is very cute and exceptionally clean, but is NOT LARGE or fancy. It does have all new windows and siding! What a great, inexpensive way for your family to safely vacation! Enjoy the pristine waters of Hampton Beach which has been chosen as one of the top 3 beaches with the cleanest water in the country!

Perfect for a classic beach vacation
This cute 1950s beach cottage was perfect for our fall beach vacation. While not fancy, I stayed with my husband and son and we had plenty of space, and loved the convenience of being able to make our own food/not have to eat out for every meal. We loved spending our days on the pristine sandy beach (only a couple minutes walk), and strolled down to the strip a few nights to play at the old school arcades and listen to the music. Will do this every year for a week of wonderful memories as a family!

When this guest left, she was very positive, told me how much she had enjoyed her vacation and that she wanted to return every year. Her daughters had driven over every day to freely park in our driveway and go to the beautiful stretch of sandy beach we enjoy, because they were staying at North Hampton where it is very rocky, so I’m wondering why the parking was “terrible”. When we checked the cottage after she left, however, there were several missing items and the place was absolutely filthy. No one is happy when they are charged additional fees, but we take great pride in the cleanliness and condition of our cottages. They are not large or fancy, as is clearly stated in our listings and as can be seen in the photos. We offer families the opportunity to enjoy a great vacation in a cute and clean cottage at a very reasonable price. We do require that our property be left clean, intact, and treated with respect.

Perfect beach getaway!
The Lynn Ann Cottage was perfect for us. We traveled from California and my family also had the cottage next door. The location was perfect. Close to the beach and walking distance to all of the fun on the strip. The cottage was small but clean and Lynn was very accommodating for our needs. We will be back and may need all three cottages!

Everything we expected .
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay @ the Lynn cottage . Everything was as advertised. No surprises. Beach was wonderful . Scenic 25 minute car ride up route1A to Portsmouth with no traffic was very enjoyable. If you are looking for a relaxing beach vacation with a young family put this place on your map. If ou enjoy fishing, parasailing, live entertainment, or just relaxing with a good book on beach , this is the place. Our one suggestion would be to remind guests to clean barbecue grill after use for the next renters.

Just what we needed.
The house was just as we expected. Great location walking distance to the beach and the strip. Quiet neighborhood; so quiet we slept late every day. Very clean. The outdoor space with the deck, picnic tables, grill, and pretty flowers was the favorite spot to relax. Two bathrooms was a nice perk. Full range of cable TV channels helped pass time on the rainy days. Small space, but just fine for our family of 3. Would book again.

Great time
The size of the beach house is small but its perfect for a family vacation. The beach is so close a two minute walk with no major roads to cross. The house was clean and the Hampton strip is a nice 5 minute walk away. We had a great time and I would rent this place again.

Relaxing
This was a wonderful week at the beach. The cottage is clean and well maintained. It is a beach cottage with all the amenities and the deck is a great gathering space. I had friends visiting for the first night and others during the week and it was quite comfortable. It is a short walk to the beach. I will definitely plan to rent this cottage next year.

Clean, private, cute cottage very close to beach.
This is a very nice beach cottage. We really liked that it has two bathrooms, the place is very clean and has been newly renovated. We spent most time outside enjoying the beach. Walking the beach or alongside the many shops restaurants and game stops. Of course eating our favorite new england seafood dishes. The beach itself was very close to the cottage easy to walk to with our beach chairs and other beach gear. The great thing is this side of the beach is a lot less crowded during the busy beach times. When we all just wanted to kick back at the cottage there was plenty of room on the deck to have a bbq on the grill and enjoy our friends and family. Oh and Joe the manager is very friendly and will help with any questions you may have.

Just right for a wonderful beach vacation
My husband and I have stayed at this cute little cottage for many years. It is by no means fancy or large, but it is just what is needed for a great little get away every fall. We can bring our family dog with us, and we enjoy drinking our coffee on the gorgeous deck every morning, and taking walks on the beach at sunset. We keep coming back because of the fabulous location and wonderful memories!

Would not recommend staying here
The only thing we really liked about this place was the location to the beach. That’s it. However, the location does occasionally have the marsh smell at night and since the back bedroom doesn’t have an AC, enjoy the smell. You could tell by the pictures that the place is small, but they are misleading in just how small. Only the back bedroom is private, the other two you have to walk through to get from one to the next. We assumed that there would at least be a hallway, but no, this place is too small. Since we were two couples and a child, one of the couples didn’t have privacy since there bedroom was constantly walked through. Then the “2 full bathrooms”… yes there are 2 bathrooms, but full ones? The front shower is so small that only a small woman or child can fit in it, and turning around is questionable. It is approximately 2-3 feet wide! Also, the toilet is so close to the sink that anyone of a decent size has to sit sideways or their knees are touching the sink. The back shower was used by just about everyone, so this became the main shower. However, there are no hooks or rods in the bathroom/shower area to hang any towels on. The back bedroom has 2 hooks on each side of the bed and that is it. So there is no place to hang any clothing since your wet towels have to take priority. And its little things like this, which make you question how much the owners actually care for the comfort of their guests. Additionally, the back bedroom only has one dresser and it is so narrow that only one person’s clothing can fit in it. Is there room for a second dresser on the other side of the bed? Yes! But they put a cheap luggage holder over there, meaning that for your weeks’ vacation they intend for you to live out of your suitcase. Again, no thought for the comfort of their guests. Final complaint about the back bedroom, is the mirror. There is only one mirror for the back bedroom and bathroom and it is maybe one foot wide by 2 feet high and at an angle to the left of the sink. I know it’s a beach vacation, but still a normal sized mirror would be nice, it’s not as if their isn’t the wall space… Now the cleaning rules… all we were told when we booked is that: “there is also a $250 REFUNDABLE cleaning and security deposit which will be returned to you, if the cottage and yard are left clean and undamaged.” Having stayed in several rentals through owners in the past, this is standard. However, this usually means that the place is neat with no damage. Not the case here, this literally means that you are the cleaning crew and you have to leave it clean and ready for the next guest or your won’t get your refund. Who ever heard of that before!? There was actually a list posted to the fridge of the chores that we needed to do to clean the place before be left (see my pictures). So much for a cute, clean cottage… how well do you think everyone before you has cleaned it on their check out day? Just enough so it looks clean to get their money back. And how long does it take to get back your security deposit if you leave the place in the proper condition? 2.5 weeks!! So you have to pack and clean the place before you leave and then they don’t release your money for a week, then Flipkey refunds the money in 7-10 days. Ready for the icing on the cake?? Monday of our vacation the fridge started to leak into the kitchen. We immediately called Lynn to inform her. We were told that Joe would be informed and it would be dealt with. Tuesday afternoon we mention it to Joe and he knows nothing about it, but says it will be looked into. Thursday the fridge is still leaking and one of us slipped in the middle of the night on the puddle, so we call again. They inform us that they thought it was from the rain on Sunday and since we hadn’t called back, they figured it had stopped. Never did they say to call them back if it continued! They had said it would be looked into and fixed. The fridge leaked into the kitchen up until at least Friday evening and never did anyone come to look at it. Now remember, this place is small. A leak that is a foot into the kitchen takes up half the walking space, even though we were continually drying it and putting paper towels down! So we are required to clean up before we go, but they can’t be bothered to send a plumber, or come and look into the issue. After we check out we receive an email which says, “We apologize for the inconvenience caused by water appearing on the kitchen floor. Still not sure what the cause of the water was. We had someone check out the refrigerator on Saturday and they couldn’t find anything wrong with it. No additional water had accumulated since. Perhaps it was rain water from an open window?” If they had bothered to come and look at it, they would have known that the water came from the left side of the fridge, near the stove and sink, but not near any window. But now they are trying to blame it on us for leaving a window open… there is an issue and they can’t be bothered to actually figure it out. Again, no thought for the comfort of their guests. All in all, I’m sure you can find a better place to stay.

Some people are just never happy. These people say that they loved the location near the beach (it's not near the marsh), yet complained about the smell of the ocean air. Most people who come to spend their vacation at the beach enjoy the fresh sea air. These people complained about water on the kitchen floor, yet declined to let me come check it out. Then they said that they “slipped” on it, and that we should give them money back. After they left we could find absolutely nothing wrong with the refrig - or anything else. The next eight (yes 8) families that stayed there after them never had a problem with any “water” on the floor - or anything else. Hmmm… I won’t even try to counter the multitude of inane complaints about the size of the mirrors or the number of hooks (4 in each bedroom seems like enough to us). This is a cute, well maintained and immaculately clean beach cottage built by my parents in 1950. It is not large or fancy. We do not have maid service and we ask our tenants to clean up after themselves in lieu of charging a large cleaning fee. We do also have a cleaning woman go through the cottage after the tenants leave. We feel that this process allows more people to enjoy a great family vacation in a clean cottage at an affordable price. Hampton Beach is a great place for a family vacation! Lynn Grainger, Owner

Our cottages are located in the quieter 'Island Section' of Hampton Beach on Dover Ave. This is the second little street on the right (towards the ocean) after crossing over the bridge from Seabrook into Hampton on Rt 1A. This is not oceanfront property - but they are only approximately 175 yards away from the beach. You do not need to cross busy Ocean Blvd to get to the beach. There are about 9 cottages (only 175 yards) between us and the sand dune at the end of our little street It is an easy 2 or 3 minute walk to the beautiful flat, white sand beach!
