This is a beautiful bed and breakfast to stay in. I just needed a place to stay for one night and it was perfect. The breakfast in the morning was just what was advertised and perfect for me. I had control of the temperature in my room which was a plus in the winter and there

Thank you so much for your positive feedback on your recent stay with us at the Pines. We do our best to assist our guests with questions on the local area such as interesting places to visit or good places to eat. Because I have grown up and lived in Durham for many years, I have a good working knowledge of local attractions and businesses. We entertain many foreign guests who are not familiar with the area and they appreciate being in a home situation with people who can address their needs. If you ever get back to the area and need accommodations, we hope that you will keep us in mind. We have a large number of satisfied guests who often return multiple times and become friends.

Thanks so much for your kind comments. We are very conveniently located in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire, yet we are very close to attractions in Maine, the White Mountains for hiking and skiing and Boston with it's many historical sights. Our home is old (1760), yet we provide modern conveniences such as complementary Internet and flat screen TVs with cable in our rooms. Surrounded by towering pines and open fields, we provide a quiet and comfortable yet affordable alternative.

Had the good fortune to find your lovely bed and breakfast. I grew up in a true antique in Massachusetts- staying at The Pines was being at 'home.' Quiet, quaint and welcoming! We will definitely return. Great location for anything connected to UNH, the beach, shopping, farm

Thank you so much for your very complimentary review. We are always pleased when guests can relate to our historic home. Built in 1760 and maintained by the same family through multiple generations, we are proud to be able to share our legacy with our many guests. Our location is convenient to UNH as well as many seacoast attractions. By growing up here and being familiar with the area, we are able to direct our guests to various activities of interest.

If you are looking for a B & B with totally straight walls and perfect paint, this is not the one. However, if you are looking for a home that has been in the same family for generations and that exudes charm, attention to detail, cleanliness and friendliness, the PInes Guest

Thank you so much for your positive review. We love entertaining guests who appreciate a historic family home from 1760's and understand that they will not always have "straight walls and perfect paint", but always have a certain character and personality. Being so close to UNH, we frequently house graduate students who stay long enough to become friends and provide an interesting mix with parents, visiting professors and others here to visit the college.

I had difficulty contacting the owner multiple times. I had the sense that she screens the calls rather than answer them at the time. The entry door is narrow as are the stairs. It was hot and humid and the air conditioner in our room struggled to cool the second floor room

We were somewhat surprised and confused by this recent review, Many of the issues mentioned could have been easily resolved with a word to the management, but nothing was said. The guests were offered a choice of rooms when they arrived and we would have happily moved them to another had they but asked. Every bed and breakfast is unique and visitors should be prepared to encounter situations that are not common to a standard hotel or motel, My reflection is that these guests were not accustomed to staying in an historic house like ours and perhaps found the unique quality uncomfortable, We strive to give our guests a pleasant stay, but we are unable to resolve issues that are unspoken.

"There is a delightful range of choices. Each is charming and most comfortable."
"We stayed in the Coe room, which was nice, but a bit small. Ask for the Jaques room, it's nicer and roomier. Quiet hours begin at 10pm."
"We stayed in the Ninde room which has 2 beds: queen and twin and a private bathroom. Not sure if the bathroom would have been private or not with full occupancy."
"Some rooms have private baths, a few others share a bath."
