Let Us Show You Around Town

Rye, New Hampshire has been a favorite summer vacation destination for centuries.  In fact, many of the cottages and houses that you see today are from Victorian times, when Rye was becoming a popular summer playground.  Today, however, Rye is a year-round home for residents of all ages, from school-age children to retirees.  We love this little Seacoast community, and we're sure that you will, too!

As longtime Portsmouth residents and local Realtors, we love showing our clients around our beautiful area. Call us, text us, or visit us and we'll be happy to introduce to the New Hampshire Seacoast.

Life revolves around the waterfront

Our coastline offers some wonderful scenery and beautiful peaceful settings along the coastal route of 1-A which follows the ocean.  You'll find great fishing spots, as well as whale-watching trips and deep-sea fishing cruises in Rye Harbor.  Be sure to visit Jenness State Beach, too!

The scenery is stunning

The drive along Route 1-A, Ocean Boulevard, is so tranquil it just really soothes your soul.  There are some truly stunning homes along this drive, and many were built as summer homes in the Victorian times.  Today, many of them are now used as year-round residences.  Rye became the summer playground for the rich and famous during the early 1900s for many years.  Many of the local residents today can trace their roots many generations back to the early settlers of Rye.
