A beautiful inn, with helpful and kind owners.

4.8 on October 17, 2017

A great night away! The room was stunning and the breakfast the next morning was simply fantastic. Our room had a little outside porch too that we spent some time on before it got too dark, and that was lovely. I'd go back again in a heartbeat, and you should too!


Lovely Stay at Sugar Hill Inn

5 on August 13, 2017

We enjoyed a lovely two-night stay at the Sugar Hill Inn. Dinner at the inn is a must! It is an extraordinary dining experience. We also had a wonderful dinner at the Horse and Hound as suggested to us by Steve's assistant. If you are as fortunate as we were to have a beautiful sunny day, take a ride on the tram at Cannon Mountain and take an easy hike to enjoy the most incredible views of the white mountains and their valleys. Next a trip to the Flume...words cannot express its natural beauty. Thank you to Steve for planning our day! Cathy & Paul


Early Anniversary Getaway

4.8 on June 29, 2017

My husband and I stayed in the Blue Room and it was very beautiful and comfortable. We had a lovely view and I loved not having a TV in the room!


Weekend Away

5 on March 29, 2017

We loved this B&B! From the minute we stepped through the door we knew it was the right choice. The flowers, chocolate and champagne in our room upon our arrival, the cocktails and conversation in the Tavern, the fantastic dinner in the dining room (with great service...thank you Debbie!) all added to the relaxation we came for and we couldn't have asked for a better weekend away! Steve and Karen are fantastic and make you feel right at home!


Getaway at Sugar Hill Inn

5 on January 18, 2017

My husband and I stayed at the Sugar Hill Inn for a one-night stay. We stayed in one of the Garden Rooms and very much enjoyed our stay. The room was impeccably clean, Steven could not have been more accommodating (honestly, they thought of everything - down to chocolate on the pillows and complimentary soda and espresso in the room) and, the breakfast the next morning was delicious! Although it is clearly stated in the description of the room on the Inn's website prior to booking; I accidentally completely overlooked the fact that there is no TV in the room. If your husband enjoys football as much as mine does this may be a problem for you :) However, we were able to stream the games on our phones. Thank you Steven, Karen and the staff for a perfect stay!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for staying with us. We like being generous and having details in our guest rooms that you will not find elsewhere. Traditionally romantic inns like ours did not have TVs. This is still true for many of our competitors. Although we are a place best enjoyed by turning off the electronics we understand that is not always possible. By plan, 6 of our 14 rooms are television free zones. This information is available on our website. Since every room at the inn is unique we devote an entire webpage with beautiful photography so you can plan the perfect stay. Although our tavern is not a sports bar we do have a large flat screen TV for football and other sports emergencies. The night you were here we did have the game on. There are also several sports bars in the area. All rooms have WIFI.

Christmas Tree Weekend

4.4 on December 08, 2016

The accommodations were gorgeous: beautiful setting, pristine rooms, comfortable and attractive in every way. But the feather in the cap of this inn lies in the friendly and accommodating staff: dining room, housekeeping and front desk. Never felt more welcome at any inn. Breakfasts, prepared by the inn-keeper, proved to be a delicious start to the day. Dinner entrees varied in value. While we found the beef filet and the cod to be special and sumptuous, there was some disappointment with the chicken and lamb shank. mind you, nothing was terrible. And, I am confident, if we had registered a complaint, they would have been most anxious to please. In an area where many inns are available, this would be high on my list for a return visit.


Thanksgiving Day Stay

Our first stay at an inn in the White Mountains. The accommodations were excellent, the food and service superb. Sit by the fireplace, sip on a drink and read a book. Steven and Karen make you feel like one of the family. Rich and Judy E.


A charming inn

3.8 on October 03, 2016

My husband and I stayed at the Sugar Hill Inn last month to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We had visited the area 25 years ago on our honeymoon and were familiar with the inn. We had reservations at another inn down the road from the Sugar Hill and when we arrived our room had been given away. The Sugar Hill Inn was very accommodating and had several rooms to choose from. We stayed in the Perennial Suite. The room was clean, charming and comfortable. The surroundings offered privacy and the grounds were beautiful and well kept. Steve and Karen are very personable. They and their staff were very kind and accommodating. We ate breakfast and one evening meal at the restaurant. The food was very good. We would stay here again and would recommend to our friends.


Wonderful Stay

First class inn tucked into the White Mountains

5 on September 03, 2016

My wife and I enjoyed 3 spectacular days at Sugar Hill. The accommodations were top shelf and the dinner and breakfast service better than any 5 star hotel we have stayed out. Steven and his wife have left no stones unturned in making their inn feel like your home. The staff was fantastic and the sites and sounds of the mountains of New Hampshire did not disappoint. Place the Sugar Hill Inn as a "must stay" location. Craig and Debbie Bodell. Cleveland Ohio
