A unique and unrivaled lodging experience.
The Tobias Lear House in the South End neighborhood of Portsmouth, NH will soon become a unique and unrivalled lodging experience, allowing visitors to have an important historic residence all to themselves for a weekend or a week as they explore the treasures old and new of Portsmouth and the New Hampshire seacoast. Guests will have the run of the eight-room house, including two bedroom suites, each with private bath, a superbly equipped modern kitchen, formal and informal dining areas, and the “best parlor” where Mrs. Lear once greeted President George Washington. Modern amenities at a luxury level will abound. Think of it as the elegant museum house that you actually get to live in for a short while, and oh so comfortably.
