We had a wonderful stay at the sugar hill inn! Steven and Karen were absolutely amazing! Karen was spot on with her recommendations from things to do to in the area to suggesting places for lunch! Thanks to her we visited the beautiful flume gorge which is stunning and to earn our delicious meal we hiked 6 miles up to lonesome lake which was again one of her recommendationsThe views up there were totally worth The room was lovely and charming and the meal we had was outstanding ! Hats off to Chef Val Fortin- dinner is highly recommended ¿¿. The staff were lovely and provided such excellent service !! We also took advantage of their massage therapist and she was brilliant We will definitely recommend the charming sugar hill inn to our friends back home in London Michelle & Jonny

From the warm owner welcoming, to the perfectly charming room, to the incredible dining... This place rocked! We enjoyed one of the best meals we've had in years at the Sugar Hill Inn. We also took advantage of their talented massage therapist on-site. She was equally amazing. This was a Great experience that will surely have us coming back.
I have just reread all of the reviews on Bedandbreakfast.com. I would like to thank you and everyone that has written us a review. They are amazing and we are truly honored. When we purchased the inn in 2006, it was run down and we had a lot to learn about Innkeeping. We invested heavily, develop a great team and focused our energies on creating our unique style of romantic relaxed luxury. It is gratifying to see the progress we have made. Going forward we will continue to innovate and focus on taking the inn to the next level of hospitality. We welcome your ideas and feedback.

My husband and I came to celebrate our anniversary. The experience was amazing. First of all, our room was upgraded with no extra charge to include jacuzzi tub and champagne. The Decor and the attention to detail was very nice. The staff and service second to none. Also, we got massages which added to the already relaxing environment. We definitely recommend this amazing place if you are looking to have a romantic getaway. Katherine Sep.

We took a drive up from Abington MA. It was a straight shot on 93 about 2 hours. The drive there alone was absolutely beautiful. Especially between exits 28-40 in Franconia. The surroundings at Sugar Hill were straight out of a picture book. The cottage was perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful, (especially the manager Katie). The owners were wonderful and hospitable. Everything was great but its the little details really caught our attention and will keep us going back. (The soft drinks, the chocolate on the counters, and the cookies on the way out). Certainly planning another trip soon.

This was a spontaneous trip and the experience was absolutely top notch! Everything about our stay at the Sugar Hill Inn was perfect! Karen and Steven were delightful hosts and demonstrated the perfect balance of being helpful and warm and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our lovely room, the soaker tub (replete with candles), the surprise birthday bubbly chilling in our room and the fabulous breakfast! Thank you, thank you!

My husband and I were looking for a nice place to spend the Thanksgiving Holiday in the mountains. I cannot tell you what a delightful experience we had. The Sugar Hill Inn is not to be missed. We stayed in the Pickett Room ( not sure of name exactly) but it was wonderful. Had a bedroom area, a coffee/tea station, small refrigerator, living room area with two of the most comfortable couches you will ever find, a fireplace and large bathroom with a large whirlpool tub along with its own porch etc. When you arrive you are rendered a very warm welcome by Katie...the family pet. Great dog..never jumps...just looks longingly with big eyes hoping to be petted. Karen and Steve are the inn keepers and could not be more accommodating. And...there is no way to describe the fantastic meal we had on Thanksgiving. The dining room is not too large so it was fun talking with the other guests and seeing where they were from. A number of parties were staying elsewhere but heard about the food and made reservations for dinner at Sugar Hill. No one was disappointed. It was a five course spectacular meal. I have never had such tender, tasty, turkey!!!!! Plus the appetizers etc etc were soooo good. I could go on and on. We cannot recommend this Inn enough. You will NOT be disappointed. Cannot wait to return.

We stayed here for Thanksgiving this year. Our hosts were very accommodating and gracious. Loved the conversation with fellow guests in the lounge area before dinner. Drinks, cheese and crackers, and interesting conversation was lovely and very sophiscated. The inn is very near our favorite ski areas. Thanksgiving dinner was absolutely delicious as well as creative. I would highly recommend the Sugar Hill Inn if you are looking for New England style elegance and excellence in hospitality. The food is way above the notch.
