Michelle Palys, owner of Allegory Inn loves NH and can help you navigate your journey around the area (also info on Area To Do tab) and even the state.
Michelle came to Twin Mountain in 2014 where she bought a failing campground Tarry Ho (now Along the River) around the corner on Route 302 and brought it back to life. There wasn't much food in the area so she then opened the 302 Grill Food Truck, and when she found out this property was closing for good, it called on her to bring it too, back to life.
Prior to the campground, Michelle raised her family in Bedford, NH and now lives in the Lakes Region where she has summered since the 1990's. She runs the business, reservations and phones offsite, while her amazing on-site property manager and staff makes sure guests and the property are taken care of 110%.
A realtor/investor since 2002, Michelle loves helping others, and her passion for small business can be felt around the state. She is a multi-certified Business Life Coach and helps business go from the tipping point of 'struggling to survive' to growing and thriving. She also hosts weekly Zoom Coaching Clinics for business owners.
Small business got in her blood while working in the family business as a kid. At 21, she secretly used her savings to open Michelle's Gourmet Popcorn on Ocean Blvd at Hampton Beach, then told her family after paying the rent, afraid they would have talked her out of it. Moving on to own 10+ businesses.
If you ever want to talk business, investments or real estate, Michelle is always willing to spend a few minutes (or hours) strategizing and inspiring.
When not working you can find Michelle boating on Lake Winnepesaukee with her dog Hannah, family and friends or teaching photography.

This building was once home to the King Family.
Allegory Inn currently sits on 5 acres, but was the original land belonging to the King Family was sold off to which is Black Bear Road 2 doors down.
The pond in the back is still called King's Pond and there is a beautiful hand carved bench that sits on the edge of the pond, built buy a neighbor around the corner from the pond who has since passed, but his family has a summer camp house there on the Ammonoosuc River.
Our back yard connects back into the old railroad bed which is now the snowmobile trail in the winter (we cut in snowmobile access after purchasing the property in 2017, as the former owner did not want snowmobiles on the property and there was no clear safe path (aside from one that ran along a huge drop off - yes yikes!). If you've been on ours it's a beautiful wide level trail we keep up all year long that is enjoyable year round.
Prior to purchase, this property was called Harmony Mountain Abode. It wasn't open often, the owner was a very nice couple who traveled alot. Under their ownership, the names of the rooms and photos in the building all reflected Swiss connections. The 3rd floor was called Matterhorn and some other names we could not pronounce, and for simplicy we named the rooms what we found easiest for guests (and ourselves) to navigate without a scavenger hunt every time.
Prior to that there was and owner named Heidi and this may have been a home and real estate office back in the. 1990's?
