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.
