Creek Farm

Area

Description

Once part of the 18th-century farm of royal Governor Benning Wentworth, this coastal hideaway borders the shoreline of tidal Sagamore Creek. The historic Carey Cottage, built in 1887, is newly-renovated and now leased by GoodWork, a nonprofit organization (the building is not currently open to the public). The short trail around the property follows the shoreline past a canoe/kayak launch and a human-made tidal pool. If you come to paddle, haul your craft across the lawn to the put-in, then head left toward Portsmouth Harbor for views of the Wentworth Coolidge Mansion and Wentworth by the Sea Hotel. Or go up Sagamore Creek and stop by BG’s Boat House for a lobster roll. Learn more about the coastal forest habitat at Creek Farm in this blog post: Living on the Edge.
