Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

As it seems to be the week where we title our blog posts with song titles, this song is only appropriate for today, as the snow is finally falling! We woke this morning to a dusting on the roads and a candy-like coating on the trees, much to our pleasure.

This week, we are happy to announce the launch of a promotion with Groupon. This amazing deal we have with them will be offered from 12/20/11 to 4/30/11. If you give us a call in the next bit, please be patient, as our phones tend to ring off the hook! Also, it seems that there is a slight typo in the fine print, stating that the coupon is for quadruple occupancy, while it should be for double occupancy only. Please note that there is a 20/person/night fee for any amount of people over double occupancy.

Finally, we are getting much better at learning how to update and maintain our website, so if you have any pictures that you would like to see up there, please just give us a call or send us an email!

The Weather Outside is Frightful!

The weather outside is holding fast to the infamous song, but our fireplaces are doing an even better job. It is hard to believe that it is already that time of year again, where the trees have been set up and the candles lit. It feels like just yesterday that we were carving turkey and raking leaves! Though it isn't a white holiday season as of yet, there is snow in the forecast and we are holding out hope.
In the non-weather news, we have decided to do something slightly crazy. Renovate every single room. One by one. It started with rooms 302, 303, and 304, all wonderfully redone by professional decorators. Then, after they left, we finished that end of the building by decorating our cozy corner room 301. And of course, many of you are well familiarized with room 211, our grand master suite. Yes. We went there.
Now rooms 209 and 309 sit in different states of finishedness, but both already look stunning! If you don't believe us, check out our facebook and our website for pictures.
Hopefully, we will be seeing a few of you up here for the holidays, and we would love it if you stopped by, just to say "Hi!".
Also, be on the lookout for our new wedding booklet--it will be out soon!

Was it really in April that we last posted? Shame on us, so much has happened since then!
   First, I am not sure if we already mentioned it, but we have a new chef! We call him Little Chef, and he's okay with that. In reality, his name is Eric, but he is rather...vertically challenged. To make up for it, he is an incredible incredible chef. For those who have been up in the last two months, you know what I mean. For those who haven't, I highly recommend that you do. He is adding new, fresh ideas to the menu and we are using more local products, giving the dining at the Sunset Hill House a fabulous new twist.
    Second, we are setting up a gift store! No, not that cute little stand thing in the front of the desk, and no, not spread out all over creation, but in a nice, cute, almost organized way in the second parlor. Come up and see it anytime!
    Well, that's our major news, but we have done other little things here and there. First, we actually repainted the pool deck from battleship grey to a lighter almost bluish color. Also, would you believe that we have redone an entire room besides the 3 that our fabulous decorators did? I didn't, until I saw it!
    See all the exciting stuff that's happening? And you are missing out! So come on and get up here, we would love to have you (as always!).

Seeing you soon,

It seems to be that spring is taking a chance to poke through. Practically over night, the grass has turned a gorgeous almost-emerald green, and there are even some flowers bursting through here and there. But of course, it wouldn't be spring at all unless the Sunset Hill Golf Course was open for business. The greens are mowed, and the pond is absolutely frigid, so the only thing missing from the picture is (I hate to be cheesy) you! Sadly, we can't allow carts yet, as you'll be driving along and then, basically, you won't. We also like our fairways and even the rough with out permanent six inch wide ditches. And so, hopefully, we'll be seeing you up here soon.

And the dash is on!

And so, today marks the start of Sunset Hill House's Design Competition. We have given our designers semi-full use of our blog, so keep looking for updates! As such, these are what the 3 rooms looked like to start. There is one picture from a back corner, one from the doorway, and one looking into the bathroom. Then, you will see the room number on a plaque. (Ignore the hallway picture at the end, by the way)!

Decorators Showdown begins in 5 hours

Lon and Sean are furiously finishing the primer coat to be 'all ready' for our three wonderful decorators coming in today.  Toy Garfield of Easton NH is tackling room 303 - she has been up scoping out the place several times.  Deb Ellis of Massachusetts has room 304 and though she cant come up she calls and emails frequently for dimensions, and has mentioned carpets and colors several times.  Evaline Foley of Littleton NH has room 302 - she has been in touch about bedding and window treatments.  It is fun to see how each of these professionals attack their jobs!

See you soon, ladies and assistants.  We'll add photos to this blog throughout the weekend and invite you to post back voting for your favorite after every update. 
Decorators contest starts in 5 hours.
