The Stonehedge Story
Stonehedge Inn & Spa is the dream story come true for Inn proprietors Dawn and Levent Bozkurt. Levent built the Inn in 1988 and a few years later married Dawn. As he fondly explains, “She added the fourth star to the Inn”. With Dawn’s tenure at the Four Seasons Hotel, Boston as Director of Food and Beverage, and Levent’s experience at Boston’s Grand Dame, The Copley Plaza Hotel as Managing Director, the Inn is under the careful and passionate eyes of two hotel professionals.
Located forty miles north of Boston and five miles south of the New Hampshire border, Stonehedge is designed after a luxurious European country manor. Recognized internationally for its prestigious Wine List, Wine Cave and New England cuisine, Stonehedge offers impeccable European-styled service combined with the warmth of a favorite New England country inn. The pampering continues in the serene setting of the Spa at Stonehedge.
Stonehedge Inn and Spa…close to Boston yet worlds away.
The Bozkurt’s most recent addition is the Inn’s restaurant, Left Bank. “Bringing our restaurant from the 80’s to the trends of today is something that we had wanted to do for a few years and we were finally able to bring these dreams to fruition,” explains Levent Bozkurt. “Wine is what we are all about and that theme is shown beautifully throughout the restaurant.” “We will continue our Celebration of Wine winemaker dinner each month as well as our monthly wine tastings . Our passion and commitment to our cuisine and wine programs will keep moving forward’, explains Bozkurt.
