These sunny upstairs bedrooms have an adjacent full bath in the hall, for your use only. Common areas (kitchen, dining & living rooms, laundry, hallways) are shared with my carefully vetted associates. These are: 1) my assistant manager Debra Ballou (trained lab worker), who comes in to clean, and 2) my property manager Gerardo (also trained lab worker, works at a medical device plant), who does house maintenance and shares the common areas. He lives in the upstairs master suite.

The space
My house is surrounded by conservation land on 3 sides, with country lanes and paths for exploring. I am an easy 5 miles from UNH and 10 miles from Portsmouth. Grocery store is 2 miles away. Come enjoy the country!

Guest access
Debra will normally greet you and show you your rooms. Each bedroom has a set of keys: one for the house door and one for the bedroom door.

Other things to note
Parking is available in my driveway (for 4 cars). You may park on the grass along the driveway, or in front on the road.

I am an active, recently-remarried older woman, raised in Oregon and Vermont, but have been in New Hampshire near many of my relatives since 1985. Previous careers include Spanish teacher and radiation safety technician. I still work part-time at a radiation safety company, calibrating radiation detection instrumentation for universities, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, etc. I have been an Airbnb host since 2012. I inherited this large country home in 2003 with my husband; he passed away in 2011. In July of 2016 I married Peter Mason, a friend from my UU church, who is an interesting and caring partner in my home-based endeavors Family and friends are very important to us and this house is often the meeting place -- we love having company! As a country-lover I am glad my house is adjacent to the Bellamy Wildlife Management Area, a 400+ acre area where we walk the many trails, go X-country skiing and snowshoeing. We go to Portsmouth for the plays, concerts, parks, good restaurants, nightlife and interesting art galleries (only 10 miles away) and walk the beaches with friends often (the ocean is 12 miles away). I am a birder (well, I try; mostly I bird by ear) and find great birding both here on the coast as well as in the White Mountains, only 60 miles away to the NW. I have always loved to garden, and have planted fruit trees and berry bushes for less-intensive bounty! The perennial flowerbeds which were my mother-in-law's give me great joy, though I do struggle with the upkeep! I enjoy sharing my space with interesting people!
