If you are looking for a one-sentence reason why you should stay at The Victorian on Sunset Hill, this was the nicest B&B we have stayed at -- ever. The B&B is right on the road where "scenic view" is marked on the tourist map (truly, it is). And while the view out front is indeed incredible, looking out the big back yard is almost as good! The home itself is a renovated mid-1800's building, though you would never know it. The owners - John and Nancy - have both been in the construction business for many years, and they personally supervised a 2-year project to totally rebuild the home. It is a small B&B with only 5 rooms, and the attention to detail is amazing. They have been in business for several years, but the rooms look brand new. We occupied the king suite on the third floor where the view from the luxurious bed looks out past a private deck and straight to the White Mountains and Franconia Notch State Park. We have been to many nice places, but this room had the best view from the bed that I have ever seen. I woke up early one morning to a sunrise so pretty I HAD to get out of bed and get my camera! Breakfasts are also outstanding with specialities like Grand Marnier french toast, lemon-blueberry pancakes, and huge made-to-order omelets. Tell John to go easy on the bacon or he will pile up about a half pound on your plate. They serve a large selection of cut fruit each morning as well as an excellent yogurt parfait to go with the main entree. If the weather is moderate you can eat on a beautiful patio overlooking the mountains.
John and Nancy are great hosts who welcome conversation but also respect your privacy. John kept saying we were "too easy", but we couldn't think of anything to ask for that he hadn't already provided! The B&B is in the (very) small community of Sugar Hill, but was only a few minutes and a very easy drive from the bigger-town conveniences of Littleton as well as the wonderful natural attractions of the state park. If you are planning a trip to the Franconia Notch area, DO NOT miss this place! Don't let the small number of reviews concern you. You will not be disappointed!
