Highlands Inn - Bethlehem, New Hampshire Lesbian Owned Resort

Welcome to Bethlehem, New Hampshire’s Highlands Inn, a women-only resort on a hundred private wooded acres in the White Mountains.

With large common areas, including a cozy living room with a cheery fireplace, and fresh flowers throughout, our lesbian owned and run Inn will remind you of a Victorian country home.

New Hampshire now recognizes full marriage equality, making The Highlands Inn the perfect place to celebrate your wedding day with your partner. Our White Mountains resort is one of the few inns or resorts dedicated to serving the lesbian community – and since our first commitment ceremony in 1985, hundreds of couples have held civil union and commitment ceremonies at the Inn. We have more than twenty five years of experience and dedication to marriage equality, making us uniquely prepared to help women achieve their dreams of marriage.

Our New Hampshire women’s B&B includes three buildings: the Main Inn with 13 rooms, the Farmhouse with 5 rooms and a full country kitchen, and the rustic Cottage. The innkeeper, Grace, bought and completely renovated the buildings and grounds in 1983. The Highlands Inn has operated continuously as a lesbian resort since then.

The Highlands Inn has long been recognized as one of the finest women’s inns in the country. PlanetOut chose The Highlands Inn as “one of the most romantic lesbian destinations on the planet.” The Inn has also received Pink Choice awards every year since 2007.

Towne Motel – Camden Lesbian Owned Motel

Author: , February 22nd, 2018

Towne Motel

The Towne Motel is a small(ish) motel with a B&B feel, just two blocks and a five minute walk from downtown Camden. We’re the closest motel to the harbor, shops, and restaurants, and have the best rates in Camden. We’re known for our super clean rooms, affordable rates, friendly vibe, home-baked continental breakfasts, and perfect location. And the big blue sign that makes us super easy to find!

We have 17 immaculate rooms of various sizes and types, some of them newly remodeled, and one pet friendly studio with kitchenette. Rooms come with fridges and Keurig coffeemakers, free wifi, outdoor seating, PAYA bath products, and individually controllable heat / A/C. Open year round – except when we need a vacation!

The history of the Towne Motel property goes back to the mid 19th century, when part of our “owners’ quarters” was a saddlery, on a large plot of land owned by the Taber family. What is now a row of cars in our lot was possibly a row of horses then! About a hundred years later, in 1955, the motel was built, just 8 small rooms on one floor catering to the first wave of car vacationers, for whom “motor hotels” were built all around the country. We’re proud of Towne Motel’s part in 1950s Americana and American motel history!

The original “Town Motel” sign advertised TV, heat, – and hot water! In the 80’s it was replaced by the blue sign we still have today, and a second story was built. Each set of owners has left their marks on the property, but everyone stayed true to Towne Motel’s core commitments: super clean rooms, retro (= affordable!) rates, and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

Had a psychic predicted our current lives ten years ago, we would’ve called her insane. Or us. What possessed us to become innkeepers? Long story, but the short of it is that we had to escape our academic lives before they became life sentences. We wanted a change that didn’t involve job applications, additional degrees, long commutes, or starvation. Inspired by Maine vacations, talks with innkeepers, an aspiring innkeepers seminar with The B&BTeam, and the memory of Siobhan’s mother’s inn here in Camden (whose current owner is now a good friend), we embarked on a journey to find the perfect inn (conveniently, this journey involved a lot of trips – most of them to Maine!). Several failed attempts into it (we almost gave up for that year), we found – and snagged – the Towne Motel, a few days after it came up for sale!

And so, in September 2013, not long after friends and colleagues had started their academic year we packed our 10,000 bags and three protesting cats (our fourth adopted us later) and drove up from New Jersey to begin this next big chapter: learning to be innkeepers. It didn’t require a degree, but it’s definitely been an education: challenging, insane, fun, challenging, and enlightening! Just “the way life should be,” as the Maine slogan goes…
