The indoor, heated pool located at the original resort facilities has been a staple of Steele Hill since the pool area was first built in 1976. Many of our original guests have fond memories of teaching their children to swim in the resort pool or relaxing with a book while appreciating the views of the lakes and mountains. Now some of those children have grown up to bring their kids back up the Hill to enjoy the pool they had so much fun in when they were little. This resort amenity has been at the heart of the property since the original expansion.
Given the importance of the resort pool to Steele Hill’s identity, management has made a significant effort to renovate the area while maintaining the relaxing atmosphere it is known for. In an effort to brighten up the facility and reface the area, our maintenance staff went to work stripping the entire floor from the pool space. With help from our vendor at Sierra Stone, we brought in a team to completely re-floor the facility with a bright, safe, stone flooring system that helped turn back the clock on this great amenity. Given the recent renovation of the adjacent patio that houses the resort’s outdoor pool and sun-bathing areas, the new floor for the indoor pool is another key project to ensure that Steele Hill Resorts is one of the most modernized, amenity-rich destinations available to people visiting the lakes region.
Looking to hit the slopes and save a few bucks? Steele Hill Resorts offers guest great discounts on ski tickets to all the local mountains. Known as the top choice for Gunstock Lodging, we are also a great location to explore Waterville, Loon and Ragged Mountain.
With our active tickets, you can skip the ticket lines and head right to the slopes at both Loon Mountain and Waterville Valley. For Gunstock and Ragged Mountain you can purchase a discounted ticket voucher at our desk that can quickly be turned into an active ticket at the respective mountain’s ticket office.
Spend the day carving up the slopes and head back to Steele Hill to enjoy all of our onsite amenities from our heated indoor pools to our relaxing roman spa. A hearty meal by the fire at Tova’s Tavern or a seat near the windows at the Hilltop Restaurant is a sure way to recharge your body after a long day of winter fun.
Picture yourself looking down on a world of magnificent color and breathtaking natural beauty. New Hampshire’s Lakes Region offers some of the most amazing displays of foliage in all of New England. The region’s magical combination of near perfect temperature fluctuations and forests fed on pristine lake waters makes foliage season a special time of year. The numerous sweeping mountains and hills that frame in the lakes literally come alive with one final display of color.
It may sound all too exaggerated, but in truth words can do little justice to describe this brief yet piercing season. Locals relish these precious weeks of prime foliage that remind them why they choose to live in the area. For the select visitors that make the pilgrimage up to the lakes, the trip is most definitely worth the payoff.
For guests at Steele Hill Resorts, the panoramic views looking across Lake Winnisquam to the burning reds and bright yellows of the forest canopy beyond are second to none. Visitors can choose to take in the scenery from one of the many decks or head out to explore the fall festivities in the Lakes Region. From the joys of traversing your first corn maze to the memories created visiting a local apple orchard, Steele Hill offers a conveniently located hilltop perch above the New Hampshire foliage.

With the sheer variety of amenities at our New Hampshire Resort, who would have thought that the pond is often the biggest draw? Golfers love the views from our 9 hole course. The new, full-sized basketball courts have been a huge hit and the west indoor pool is what we are known for, but often times, on those bright and sunny summer days, visitors flock to the resort’s large fishing pond.
In part, the popularity is driven by our activities director showing kids and adults alike all of the wildlife that calls the pond home. From the resident snapping turtles to the stocked rainbow trout and the old bull frogs, Steele Hill’s fishing pond can be a great substitute for a trip to the aquarium. Oftentimes guests will get a chance to get up close and personal with the resident animals.
This year, Brianna, one of our luckiest guests, was able to catch the biggest crayfish on record at Steele Hill. While the picture doesn’t quite do it justice, this king of crustaceans measured out at almost 7 inches long. Good job Brianna and thanks for helping us release him back into the water. Future guest are bound to be in for a shock when they think they see a lobster strolling along the bottom.

Get your cameras handy. The grounds crew has been hard at work planting the latest delivery of 226 flowers. Braving a rather wet, unforgiving day, the grounds team tackled the monumental task head on. Transporting the plants around the resort with the help of golf carts and utility vehicles, the crew put in long hours tending to the plants and making sure things looked just right for the Memorial Day rush.
The annual “planting of the flowers” event helps mark our big push before the busy summer season at the resort. Trucks arrived bright and early, stocked to the brim with pink, red and white Supertunias, delivering a swath of colors to help accent the beautiful resort campus. If you are someone who appreciates the natural backdrop of a lovely New Hampshire day, then our flowers are sure to catch your eye on your next visit to the Hill. We hope to see you soon.
The staff of the Hilltop Restaurant recently flexed their culinary muscles with a great showing at the annual Taste of the Lakes Region event. Showcasing the Hilltop’s tradition in delicious food, Steele Hill sent three representatives to the event, Becky Guyer, Evan Vogel and Larry Mosbrucker. Evan, a chef at the Hilltop, shared his award winning chili to the delight of the numerous tasters that visited the Hilltop’s display table. With the perfect balance of spicy flavor and hardy ingredients, the chili was as big a hit at the Taste of the Lakes Region event as it is at the Hilltop on a regular basis.
To complement the chili, the restaurant also featured bite sized servings of succulent bistro steak on homemade gorgonzola puff pastries. “We had a lot of smiling faces and some real positive feedback throughout the day” says Becky Guyer, Assistant Manager at the Hilltop. While Steele Hill is known for world class views, the food at the Hilltop may be our best kept secret. If you are thinking about visiting the Lakes Region or are planning on staying at Steele Hill, don’t miss a chance to grab a window seat at the Hilltop Restaurant, where the food is as good as the views of the Lakes and Mountains.
