    The Restaurant At Sugar Hill Inn The Culinary Experience is an integral part of any stay at the Sugar Hill Inn. We use only the freshest local produce and herbs grown in our own gardens. We serve aged cheddar from Harmon's, goat cheese from Vermont and maple syrup from Sugar Hill. The day starts with a full breakfast served in our dining room. Relax with a cup of our famous slow melt hot chocolate or cappuccino while you take in the breathtaking vistas of Cannon Mountain and Mt. Lafayette.

    At 4:00 pm it is time for a treat. Whether you are just checking in or have returned from a day of hiking, biking, skiing, shopping or antiquing join us for tea, sweets, fruit and cheese. In the summer it may be homemade ice cream. Before dinner enjoy your favorite cocktail, beer or wine while sharing your day's adventures with your fellow travelers. We have a European philosophy about dining. The table is yours for the evening.

    Take your time to enjoy the candlelight and cozy fire with the combination of great food, wine and conversation. After dinner enjoy your coffee or brandy by the fire. With advance notice, we can accommodate most dietary requests. Please let us know how we can serve you.

    Breakfast at the Sugar Hill Inn is all about the luxury of being served, beautiful surroundings, and delicious home cooked food. Begin the day with Organic Fair Trade Coffee, warm home baked muffins, juice and fresh fruit. The menu always includes a selection of entrees plus homemade granola. Favorites include omelets, scrambled eggs with local cheddar and fresh herbs, stuffed French toast, blueberry buttermilk pancakes and waffles topped with berries and whipped cream. Breakfast is included for inn guests.

    Take A Refreshing Dip In The PoolFrom simple to elegant, every room has the warmth, amenities and distinction you expect from a fine country Inn. Our mission is to make each guest's stay memorable, comfortable and relaxing. We've tried to think of everything you might need. We furnish each room with bathrobes, plush towels, our exclusive specialty bath products, bottled water, a clock-radio, hair dryer, fresh flowers in season, breathtaking views... and for those who bring their laptops... free wireless internet access in the main inn building. All guest rooms, except the Oakes Room, are air-conditioned. A guest phone is available, as cell service is spotty. The Sugar Hill Inn is a completely smoke-free property.

  • Spa Treatments

    What better way to leave the tension and stress behind than by treating yourself to a massage during your stay. Our Spa Room offers the convenience of a professional massage with a licensed massage therapist without ever having to leave the comfort of the inn. Choose from three types of treatments.
    • Swedish Massage relaxes your mind while improving circulation for the entire body. Traditional light to medium strokes are used for relaxation and balance.


    • Deep Tissue massage provides relief for muscle tension and stiffness by using firmer strokes and pressure point work resulting in a more therapeutic effect.


    • Hot Stone massage is the "ultimate" massage experience. Hot stones are used in conjunction with either Swedish or Deep Tissue massage. The warmth of the stones relaxes the muscles and helps to release tension. You'll want the massage to last forever.
    To make an appointment, call 603-823-5621 or 800-548-4748 or select the "Spa Services" tab when booking a room online. If booking online, be sure to request a day and time.
