“The Hilltop Inn is one of those places that friends hesitate to tell you about because they are afraid it will become so popular that there won’t be room for them . . . But the real charm of The Hilltop Inn is its owners, Meri and Mike Hern. Their offbeat sense of humor and irrepressible enthusiasm make old friends out of strangers . . . ” — New Hampshire: Off the Beaten Path , by: Barbara Radcliffe Rogers & Stillman Rogers, The Globe Pequot Press
