 The Sugar Hill Inn started as a small farmhouse built by the Oakes family in 1789. As one of the early settling families in the Sugar Hill area, they are counted among the score of hearty and independent folks who came into the White Mountains of New Hampshire in search of a better life. This traditional New England house was built of post and beam construction and relied on handsome fireplaces in the principal rooms for heat.

In 1924, when a large addition to the original house was added, it began operation as the Caramat Inn. In the 1950′s three two-room cottages were built in a cluster on a knoll just west of the main building. Some of the area’s most breathtaking views can be seen from these guest rooms and porches. In 1972, the Inn was renamed the Sugar Hill Inn.

In May 2006, entrepreneur Steve Allen purchased the inn and moved with his daughter, Sara, to fulfill his dream of owning an inn. With a strong culinary background, Steve has significantly invested to upgrade the inn with such amenities as an in-ground pool, central air-conditioning, new furnishings and interior decorating.


Number of Rooms: 14

Great getaways are made of romance, comfort, rejuvenation and impeccable hospitality. We know those components are on the lists of Sugar Hill Inn guests, which makes each guest’s stay important to us. After a day in the White Mountains, a night in one of the inn’s inviting guestrooms, suites or cottages is the perfect final ingredient for a great getaway. Each room features a private bath – some with double whirlpool tubs – a plush king or queen bed and mounds of soft pillows. There are fireplaces, wonderful mountain views, and even a private porch adjoining some rooms and cottages. All guest rooms, with the exception of the Oakes Room, are air-conditioned. Every room at the Inn has a history and significance all its own. Whether you choose the room where Bette Davis stayed while her home was being built, the luxurious Richardson Suite or the affordable Moses Aldrich room, each offers the grace, comfort and hospitality of a premier historic inn. Gift certificates make the perfect gift. Share it with a friend.

A full country breakfast, as well as afternoon tea (with crackers and cheese or cookies), is included in the room rate.
