Interview With Grace Newman, Owner of One of the Oldest Lesbian Vacation Resorts
he Highlands Inn in Bethlehem, NH has been a lesbian vacation spot and playground since the 1980s. Now that same-sex marriage is legal in New Hampshire, it's become a lesbian wedding destination. We spoke with Grace Newman the owner of the Highlands Inn.

Grace, how long have you owned the Highlands Inn?

We bought the property in 1983 and completely renovated the main building, grounds, and swimming pool. Three years later, I bought and restored the Farmhouse, a charming, 200-year old house that's the oldest house in Bethlehem and just a short walk from the Main Inn. We opened the Cottage in September 1990.

What made you decide to open an inn just for lesbians?

In 1982, after much discussion, my then-partner and I decided to leave the corporate world and try innkeeping. As lesbians, we were acutely aware of how awkward it was back then to book a room with only one bed! We spent several months looking for a suitable property in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Western Massachusetts. When we found what became The Highlands Inn, we knew it was the perfect place-located in the heart of New Hampshire's beautiful White Mountains, just minutes from the Interstate, and with the privacy provided by lots of land.
