For us, it made perfect sense to transition our Historic property in Colebrook to welcome friends to experience what we love best about living and playing here. Our more than 40 years in the hospitality business has taken us to some of the most beautiful resorts in the country, but the opportunity to spend 21 years at the Balsams and to raise our sons in Colebrook, has cemented our love for the North Country and this extraordinary community that we call “home”.
-John & Linda White

Deep reds, white linens, curved archway and intimate seating in the dining room, take you back.. and invite you to linger a while...to talk and taste...and remember...
