A Message From The Manager

I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe and healthy during these difficult times. I can assure you that we here at Steele Hill are doing everything possible and taking all precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy while still offering the best vacation experience possible. We have made some modifications to the front desk check in area by installing a new entrance, building some separation walls and adding glass barriers on the desk. The housekeeping department continues to thoroughly and properly clean and sanitize all guest accommodations. Common areas are cleaned and sanitized on scheduled intervals throughout each day. The maintenance department is getting ready for winter, winterizing all buildings and prepping the trucks and plows for what we hope is a snowy winter.

The food and beverage department is excited to launch an updated menu starting December 1st. You can dine in at the Hilltop or Tova’s Tavern but you can also order food and beverages for pickup or have them delivered right to your room. You can also order food to The Oasis bar at the West indoor pool which will now be open on the weekends for the winter season.

Even with some of the restrictions caused by Covid 19 we still have plenty of winter activities to offer. The indoor pools and Roman spa are open with social distancing and limited occupancy but they still have that tropical feel to them even when it is snowy and cold outside. The indoor gaming stations in the amenities building are open and our activities director, Nancy, is offering daily activities and arts and crafts located at the Carriage House. Once the snow flies be sure to take advantage of our snow shoe rentals and check out all of our hiking trails. Don’t forget to bring your sled and ice skates to enjoy a day on the sledding hill and skating on our pond. If you are a snowmobiler there are connecting trails right from the resort to local and state trails.

While the experience may be a little different this year, the local ski areas are planning to open soon. There are also many other activities and events that take place in the winter season in the area such as ice fishing derbies, sled dog races, pond hockey tournaments and the ice castles in the north country. Be sure to book your vacation at Steele Hill and remember to check out our discount promotions like the Winter Family Fun package that includes 20% off your room as well as freshly baked cookies and hot cocoa.

We hope to see you soon,
Rob Robillard

A Message From the Manager

We had a beautiful and colorful fall season but it is coming to an end as the last few leaves fall from the trees. We have already experienced our first snowfall and the forecast is predicting more frigid temperatures, so I guess it is time to start thinking about our winter season. The maintenance staff is battening down the hatches and preparing the resort for our upcoming winter season. We are stocking up on salt and sand and making sure the plows and shovels are ready for what we hope to be a good snow year.

The Hilltop Restaurant staff is working on some great new comfort food items and delicious winter cocktails that will be sure to satisfy even the heartiest of appetites. Stop by our onsite restaurant or bar to enjoy a dinner by the ambient fireplace while overlooking the snow-covered mountains this winter season.

The onset of winter opens the Lakes Region to an abundance of fun activities. The ski slopes will be covered with snow for families to enjoy. Whether you are just learning to ski or you are a veteran skier, New Hampshire’s mountains offer something for every experience level. Soon the ponds and lakes will freeze over allowing for several events that take place on the ice in our area, including the Pond Hockey Classic, car racing on the ice, ice fishing derbies, or the opportunity to just spend time skating or fishing with friends and family.

While onsite, stop by the front desk and rent snowshoes for the whole family to adventure out onto our trail network. Don’t forget to pack your ice skates and sled for some winter fun on our onsite skating pond and sledding hill! If the winter outdoors is not your cup of tea you can always hang out in one of our indoor pools and enjoy the warmth and tropical feel while sipping on one of the many offerings from our bartenders. We hope you choose to come make memories with us here at Steele Hill Resort this winter.

Sincerely,
Rob Robillard
