Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Chapter 18 I first met Karen in 2008 and she was also on a mission. I did not realize this until recently but both of us were seeking the perfect slice of New England life. However, we each had our own definitions. The first thing that you will notice when meeting Karen is that she […]

The Dining Room

Monday, 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 […]

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.

New Hampshire Beer

Monday, 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 […]

Becoming a Restaurateur.

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Chapter 10 I don’t understand it but I am a restaurateur.  I own what many think is the best restaurant in the White Mountains.  Besides from some momentary fantasies, I never envisioned myself owning a restaurant.  Life has so many twists and turns that defy the best of plans. The restaurant is a tale of […]
