Vacation Rental at Rye Beach, NH

“Madre's Cottage” is the perfect place for your summer vacation. It is located on the beach side of A1A in a quiet residential area, just steps away from beautiful Jenness Beach.

The cottage sleeps six comfortably with one queen bed and one double bed in the huge (22'x22') second-floor bedroom, two twin beds in “the little bedroom”. There's also a queen-sized sofa bed in the living room for overflow or short-term guests, bringing the total capacity to eight. There are two bathrooms: one on the second floor with a large bathtub, and one on the first floor with a shower. There is also an outside shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach.

The kitchen has a full-sized stove/oven and refrigerator, plus microwave, and all the accessories you'll need. There's also a gas grill for outside cooking. The living room, with its fireplace and lots of windows, and sliding glass doors, is the perfect place for family gatherings. There's a 15'x15' deck on the back, off the kitchen, plus decks the width of the cottage on the front of both the first and 2nd floors. (You can get a glimpse of the ocean from the 2nd floor deck, but we don't consider it “ocean view”).

The cottage is “a beach cottage” in the tradition of 1950's-1970's cottages. While it has all the modern conveniences (including wi-fi internet and a flat-screen TV), it is designed for a fun vacation, not a fancy hotel stay. That's one reason we welcome children, but no pets (sorry). If you are looking for a fancy hotel or ritzy cottage experience, Madre's Cottage is not the place for you. It hasn't had a major upgrade (other then the water heater, furnace, plus the TV and internet access) since the 70's, and shows it in some ways, but it is clean and comfortable.
