Glen Oaks Inn

États-Unis / Intervale / New Hampshire / Carroll County

Glen Oaks Inn continues to host travelers after more than a century! The Glen Oaks Inn bears the distinction of having continually been a haven for travelers since it first opened in 1890. The turn-of-the-century stone cottage was originally an office for one of the area's first woman lawyers, Marion W. Cottle. Part of the building built in the 1830s, was located next door and operated as a general store for a time. It was moved to its present site in the late 1870s by Daniel Carlton, who then made extensive additions and opened it as an Inn. In 2005 Mitch Scher and Linda Trask purchased the inn, known then as The Forest, and renamed the property The Glen Oaks Inn. Originally from New York, Mitch and Linda arrived in New Hampshire after spending more than twenty years in California. Mitch served in the Navy after studying at Berklee School of Music in Boston. After his return from Viet Nam, he played saxophone professionally and traveled with a number of musicians including Little Richard's band, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Arturo Sandoval, John Faddis, Bill Watrus, James Moody, and the Temptations. Prior to his arrival in New Hampshire, Mitch worked with a number of food companies in Northern California. Linda moved from Las Vegas to Northern California with friends at 18 and attended Delta College studying business and marketing. She worked for an interstate carriers as a National Account Manager covering Sales and Marketing for the Western States. Linda's dream of owning an Inn came from watching a holiday movie with her mom when she was young called Holiday Inn. The day before they signed papers to purchase the Inn, the previous innkeeper told them at one time the Inn was called Holiday Inn. Irving Berlin had been a guest and it was his stay at this Inn that inspired him to write the movie "Holiday Inn". Mitch and Linda knew then that this is where they were meant to be.
