The Tavern

July 8th, 2015

Chapter 17 I was never really one who hangs out in bars. It never really made sense to me to be standing four deep at the trendy bar of the moment or waiting in line at the cool club hoping to get in. The sports bar with the huge flat screen TVs and cheap beer […]

Chapter 16 If all you need is a decent place to stay while exploring Franconia Notch I can recommend several well run motels.  However, if where you stay is just as important as or sometimes even more important than your day time itinerary the Sugar Hill Inn might be worth considering. At the Sugar Hill […]

Being Famous – Living in a fish bowl

May 1st, 2014

Chapter 15: No new book about hospitality would be complete without including a discussion of Trip Advisor. They are now the 800 pound gorilla of the travel industry. As a kid people were always commenting on my name. Now there is a whole generation that has no idea who “Steve Allen” was. I often wondered […]

The Dining Room

March 3rd, 2014

The Dining Room Chapter 13: In 2006 if you wanted to give a generous assessment of the Sugar Hill Inn’s dining room you would see a delightful breakfast room.  In the morning with windows on three sides, the room is bright and sunny.  The room had natural wooden tables and simple schoolhouse chairs.  The tables […]

Executive Chef Val Fortin

January 16th, 2014

Chapter 12 That first year it was a rare day that I took time off from the inn for myself.  I had about four hours on a beautiful mid-august afternoon and I decided to hike the Falling Waters Trail.  The trail leads to a series of dramatic waterfalls and eventually to the top of Franconia […]

Concert au grand salon by Michael Rozenvain

January 8th, 2014

The Canadian border is just 75 miles north of Sugar Hill. For years the Sugar Hill Inn, in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, has been a stopping point on the way to explore our neighbor, Quebec, to the North. After our fall busy season Karen and I headed north. The first night we stayed at Manoir […]

New Hampshire Beer

December 2nd, 2013

Is beer the new wine?  A few days ago I went to a relatively new microbrewery in Littleton called Schilling.  I ordered a dark beer and it came in a brandy snifter.  At first I thought this to be odd.  But after the first sip I understood that this beer deserved a special glass. I […]
