For pet travelers, don't worry, the dog-friendly cottages and one lodge room will be remaining - Leon and Nellie are blessed with their yellow lab named Whitman, a Jack Russell terrier named Lilly and our wonderful rescued dog, Jed who adopted us.
Your Innkeepers have wonderful culinary skills that will delight you every morning! We began Hot Rize Bagel Café in Merrimack New Hampshire from scratch and had to expand! It was extremely successful so we bought the entire mall building! If you're in that area,
and love bagels, be sure to stop by and tell them that we sent you.
Leon is a graduate of Franklin Pierce College and was formerly a lithographer. For years, he felt an underlying desire to start his own bagel shop. He trusted his gut, and designed the Hot Rize Café from its inception. His wife Nellie, graduated from Smith College with a Master’s in Education from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She was formerly a Biology teacher for sixteen years at Brookline High School in MA. Nellie helped Leon during the early years and had joined him as the full time Hot Rize manager.
After a decade, they decided it was time to start another new adventure, and moved further north in New Hampshire. They found the perfect place to start up their new Bed and Breakfast and named it Spruce Moose Lodge and Cottages!
Together, with loving hearts and discipline, they bring their expertise to provide their guests with a wonderful experience. You'll absolutely, enjoy your stay at our B&B campus estate,
whether staying with us for an overnight, weekend or a week!
