We stayed at Farnstead for 2 nights and had a lovely time. The owners are such warm people and we felt very welcome there. John makes the best homemade pancakes (along with his homemade syrup), and he keeps you entertained during breakfast, it was so great!

If you are looking for a little quaint inn, this is it! No TV's but very comfy beds in a quiet setting. Innkeepers are such pleasant, helpful people.

Charming B&B in Maine countryside but close to Maine beaches. Charming room & great breakfast. Couldn't be a better place to end our New England vacation.

Loved the cozy, most interesting old farmhouse- with its pictures and warm friendly atmosphere.

It was a quiet, out-of-the-way location but still close to Portsmouth. It felt like staying with relatives (good ones!). Very home-like atmosphere. Excellent!!

Our first time staying at a B&B. We enjoyed our stay, it was close to the beach and shopping. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming. We will come back and try other B&B's again.

This B&B is in a structure built over 200 years ago and has surpassed my expectations for such a B&B. It is very well kept and well attended to. Both John and Marian are a pleasure to interact with, as are the general areas outside the room. The upkeep of the individual room was thorough and daily, and the breakfasts were outstanding and filling. (btw they do have wifi, which another posting may have missed). It has plenty of outside space for stretching, relaxing on a hammock or even buying live lobster and cooking them in a pot provided by the proprietors! I believe this B&B is a beautiful example of a B&B in a home built centuries ago, away from the tourist traps, but with modern comforts. I will liken it to a particular wine - which grape/flavor may not be for everyone due to individual tastes, but this B&B is a benchmark in its class (just like a Château d'Yquem is a benchmark for a Saternes!)

Charming house, nice rooms and friendly owners. A lovely and delicious breakfast - all of which make this B&B a must stay, even for locals.

The room we occupied was a good size with comfortable beds and beautiful quilts. The bathroom was large and also had a microwave! The only thing missing was a hair dryer. Breakfast was wonderful and our host kept us entertained with great stories/jokes.

We were looking for a B&B in the Portsmouth NH area that wouldn't cost an arm and leg. We found the Farmstead B&B met all our needs and exceeded our expectations. The rooms were interesting, the food was good, and the owners were friendly and interesting people. We enjoyed ourselves during our stay at this peaceful, quiet place.

We stayed one night, to be in Portsmouth early the next day for a boat trip to the Isles of Shoals. The hosts are very gracious and friendly. The place is just like home.

This Inn is so warm and inviting. The perfect place to go to get away from everything, but close enough for shopping and dining. The rooms were charming and the hosts wonderful! Breakfast was definitely a treat. This was our 2nd time staying and looking forward to going again! The perfect place with the perfect price!

I stayed here October 2011 to view the fall foliage. The price was very competitive compared to just about everywhere else. Modest rooms, but quaint and down to earth, which is what I was looking for. John, one of the proprietors, is a former Air Force pilot with a no-nonsense attitude. Excellent cantaloupe appetizer and blueberry pancakes! Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Farmstead is in a rural area but is not far removed from Portsmouth NH and Kittery ME. The rooms are small but more than adequate. Breakfast was lovely in a very pretty setting. We were looking for a quiet place to bunk down after touring the very busy cities nearby and we found what we were looking for. It is not luxurious. On the other hand the rates are very good. The property is lovely.
