The other reason for my disappearance from Blogland is my new job! I am working for my friends Ed & Les, owners of the fabulous Notchland Inn, located in Hart's Location, NH. Never heard of Hart's Location? Not surprising, as it is the smallest town in NH, boasting a population of around 40. However, its claim to fame is its "first in the nation" voting, which takes place at midnight. They share this honor with Dixville Notch (which always gets the national press attention). Anyway, I am learning to become an Innkeeper!
The Notchland Inn is a quiet, lovely romantic inn. It truly is a step back in time. No tv, no cell phone service (though they work several miles down the road), just peace and quiet. Mountains, rivers, hiking, skiing, leaf-peeping, kayaking, are right outside our door, and of course, outlet shopping, train rides, more skiing, golfing and restaurants are down the road.
The Notchland Inn has private bathrooms & real wood fireplaces in every room. It was built in the 1860s and retains the feel of a distant era. This is the perfect place for a quiet, romantic getaway!
Since I spend so much of my time at the Inn nowadays, I will be wiring about it in my little blog. There is so much to write about (and look at)...antiques, collections, furniture, period pieces, Arts and Crafts decor ( the front room was designed by Gustav Stickley!!), gardens...so stay tuned for all sorts of fascinating posts!
