A warm welcome awaits you as soon as you enter our historic reception area. You will be greeted and guided to your Mountain view room. The two sitting rooms provide ample seating for those wishing to read or play board games, with fireplaces to keep the rooms warm and cozy. The Tavern provides a relaxed area to grab a drink and a bite to eat and watch TV or the golfers!

Outdoors at the Inn
As soon as you turn onto Sunset Hill Road, you will be surrounded by breathtaking mountain views with Vermont’s Green Mountains one side and the dramatic contrast of New Hampshire’s White Mountains on the other side of the road you cannot help but stop and take it all in. With plenty of outdoor seating on the decks, poolside or in the gardens themselves you will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy our clean fresh mountain air. Watch out for bear, deer, moose, turkeys and an abundance of wild flowers as well as our perennial flower beds. Take a stroll around the quaint, pretty village of Sugar Hill or relax in the outdoor pool (open Summer months only & heated by the sun!). While you are here, make sure you visit New Hampshire’s oldest Golf Course and Club House – play 9 holes or sit on the club house porch to watch the sun set or take an amble through the adjoining 60+ acres of nature conservancy land. In Winter months, cross country ski or snowshoe right from the Inn and within a few minutes drive you will be gliding down the trails at Cannon Mountain or enjoying the expansive cross country trail system at Ski Hearth Farm. Bretton Woods is just 25 minutes away and Loon Mountain even closer.
Meet the Innkeepers
Both Sally & Dick are from the UK and had visited New England many times on vacation. They fell in love with the peaceful way of life of the White Mountain region. Before moving to New England in 2004, Sally was a Marketing Manager & Dick was a Distribution Manager – both roles which involved plenty of customer contact and excellent customer service! The Inn at Sunset Hill is their second venture into the hospitality business, with their previous B&B ranking highly on many review sites.
Having been both tourists and lived in New Hampshire for many years, Sally & Dick are happy to offer advice and tips on how to make the most of your stay in Sugar Hill.
Inn at Sunset Hill / Sunset Hill House History
The quiet town of Sugar Hill has been famous since the 1800’s for having the best mountain views in New England. The original Sunset Hill House, built in 1880 was one of the original Grand Hotels, boasting accommodations for 350 guests and 300 staff to look after them. The era of the grand hotel has since passed by, the Inn at Sunset Hill is all that remains of the original Sunset Hill House. Known as The Annex (as shown in the old postcard above), it was originally built for guests seeking the “convenience of the main house while excluding the confusing hustle and bustle of hotel life”. The same remains true today, offering the tranquility of mountain views alongside the modern facilities today’s traveler requires with WiFi access throughout, cable TV, spacious guest rooms, swimming pool, golf course, pub and restaurant and of course good old British hospitality!
