The story behind the Center Lovell Inn Essay Contest.
This is a wonderful entertaining read about passion, hospitality and commitment. The true story of Bil and Susie Mosca, and the inspiring story behind the first Center Lovell Inn Essay contest. This is a contemporary version of the Bob Newhart show. It chronicles the couple’s epic journey, that began when they first blessed eyes on a 1805 farm house in YANKEE magazine back in the mid 1980s. The Mosca’s are married only ten months when they buy this 1805 mansard roof mansion on an impulse, after being fed-up of the high crime and struggle of big city living. They build successful business from scratch — on a shoe-string budged — in a remote village on the edge of the White Mountains.
“Passing Along Our Dream” is the story that spans twenty years at the Inn to giving away their world renown Inn.
