I have thought quite a while before writing this review, as I have many conflicting thoughts on the inn. In the end, I think it boils down to being a nice place but somewhat overpriced. Read on for my thoughts: The innkeepers and dog were very friendly and helpful. The inn is composed of a main building with lounge and bar, and outlying cabins, or smaller units reached by walking across grass, perhaps 100-150 feet from the main building. Our compact room had very modern furniture (but an uncomfortable sofa) and was nicely decorated with original artwork. There was a nice, thermostatically-controlled gas heater next to the bed. However, the wi-fi came and went, and we had no cell phone reception (not that important for me but would have been helpful considering the wi-fi). The driveway to the cabin was stones and rutted in places, so the car bottomed out. While the location was very pretty and had professional landscaping around the buildings, some plants needed pruning, and even by the main entrance there were weeds that should have been pulled. The inn is well located, only about 45 minutes from Mount Washington, and near towns such as Littleton with many amenities. However, as the owners say, you should not rely on your GPS to find them - you will be on the right road but a few miles from the inn. Perhaps that situation is because they are really closer to Franconia than Sugar Hill. The bathroom is very modern, but the jacuzzi tub is very slippery on the bottom and has no handrails (but the owners may be correcting this problem). The low-flow shower head has plenty of hot water. There is a large very firm bed with lots of soft pillows. There are plenty of art and cooking magazines to read, but no TV in the room we had (others do have it, so research carefully if you want it). The room was very quiet when no one was in the other half of the cabin. It is supplied with plenty of electrical outlets, good lights, soap, and nice towels. There is an outdoor pool which we did not use as it was small and seemed more suited for children. Breakfast is included, and well made, but I was given the wrong breakfast which I had not ordered one day. It was the same as I had had the previous day, and not worth complaining about the mistake, but it was still wrong. We were offered a choice of one time for a dinner reservation, but when we arrived, the dining room was almost empty, and there were only two other couples for dinner the entire time we were there. Our dinner lasted 2 1/4 hours, much longer than expected. The food and service were very good - the chef has won numerous awards nationally, but I am more a meat-and-potatoes man and not a fan of pretty but small portions. The price was also much higher than most restaurants, more on the line of what you would expect to pay in London or New York. We did not stay during what I would consider the high season - no fall colors, not skiing season, just an ordinary time of year. Now, this inn was nice, but I have stayed at quite a few places around the world that cost over $300 a night, and this inn was not in the same category as the others. Sugar Hill Inn would have been a good value at perhaps $200 a night. I would look elsewhere if I were returning to the area.
