Nestled by a sparkling stream on several acres at the edge of picturesque Jackson village in the Mount Washington valley, the inn’s rooms and rustic cottage for two are uniquely appointed with period furnishings, many with two-person Jacuzzi and/or balconies and most with fireplaces. Let the river’s soothing sounds lull you to sleep, and awaken to clear mountain air and a bountiful homemade breakfast in our sunny dining room.

Spend your days exploring waterfalls or enjoy scenic drives, hiking, golf, canoeing, fishing, mountain biking, tax-free shopping or just relaxing with a book by our heated outdoor pool (May-September) or in the Adirondack chairs by the river. For the eco-adventurous, you can scale Mount Washington via the Auto Road, the Cog Railway or hiking trails, take a moose tour, or a go on a mountainside horseback ride. Fall surrounds you with its brilliant foliage, and when the snow flies, you can cross-country ski, snowshoe, take a sleigh ride, or choose from one of five alpine ski centers nearby. No matter the season, you can return from exploring the White Mountains to enjoy afternoon refreshments in our gazebo or by a blazing fire, a game of darts or billiards in our cozy game room/pub, the challenge of a Stave puzzle or board game in our sitting room, or the relaxing view of the river as you soak in our atrium-enclosed hot tub. Dining is available at many wonderful restaurants in Jackson and nearby North Conway.

Year round, the inn is a perfect choice for a weekend getaway, a relaxing vacation, or to celebrate any special occasion. Find yourselves here before life hurries on ~ we are waiting to welcome you!

Then choose between our two hot entrées, each served with maple glazed bacon or sausage and a choice of toast if you wish.
