  • Weddings, Elopements & Honeymoons

    The Inn at Ellis River is the ideal romantic setting for your engagement, intimate wedding, elopement or honeymoon. The picturesque village of Jackson is known for scenic surroundings, cacading waterfall, and the historic red covered bridge, named the “Honeymoon Bridge.” This is a place where honeymooners would stop and steal a “Good Luck Kiss,” a tradition that dates back to the 1800′s.

    Snow Much Fun and Romance

    Who needs to limit Valentine’s to a day since Jackson was named one of the 10 most romantic ski towns in the East? You’ll find a winter wonderland wherever you look. Enjoy the best cross-country skiing in the East right here at Jackson’s Ski Touring Center and Great Glen Trails is only a short distance away at the base of Mount Washington. Bear Notch Ski Touring Center is close by as well. All have great snowshoe trails, too! Up for more adventure? Try a backcountry skiing tour or ice-climbing with Eastern Mountain Sports Climbing School.

    Don’t want to work so hard? Ride the Snow Coach to above treeline or drive part of the Scenic Byway for winter vistas in every direction. Go snowmobiling with a guided tour or rental in Fryeburg or Gorham, or Bear Notch or Bretton Woods. Even dogsled rides can be arranged near Jackson.

    If Alpine skiing is your cup of cocoa, you’re in the right place. Black Mountain, a family friendly mountain great for beginners, is right in the village of Jackson. Wildcat Mountain, at Jackson’s highest reach, was one of the first ski areas in the country and offers a true New England skiing experience. Your lift ticket there also is good at Attitash in Bartlett. You can ski or tube at Cranmore Mountain in North Conway or drive up Crawford Notch to Bretton Woods. A crackling fire and warm refreshments greet you when you return to the inn. A weekend evening is a perfect time for a romantic sleigh ride at Nestlenook Farm.

    Jackson is home to the New Hampshire Snow Sculpting Competition in late January. Visitors can view sculptors at work night and day to complete their work in time for judging. February is for romance, of course! March brings great spring skiing and sugaring season, where you can watch the delicious treat we serve with all our pancakes being made. When sugaring ends, the buds are starting to turn to blossoms.

    Springtime Bud to Blossom

    Shoppers find many bargains and hikers enjoy the moose and other wildlife that return with the blossoming spring. From late April through early Fall you can enjoy a Moose Tour with moose sightings guaranteed. Hear the roar of the river and see its tremendous power as the winter snows melt. Waterfalls are at their best and hiking trails abound. Fish in rushing mountain streams and back country ponds, the trophy section of the Ellis River just past Jackson’s covered bridge, the Wildcat or the Saco. Check out North Country Angler for advice, lessons and guided trips, or Reel North.

    Area golf courses open for the season in May, with early season rates. In addition to the Wentworth and Eagle Mountain Golf Courses in Jackson, you can play at eight other White Mountain courses from the Omni Mount Washington Course (voted “Best Course You Can Play” in NH by Golfweek Magazine) to the scenic North Conway Country Club links.

    June brings spectacular displays of Lupines and the alpine gardens above tree line on Mt. Washington. Lots of things to do indoors, too, from visiting the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway to art galleries and antique shops.

    Summer ~ The Living is Easy or Adventurous

    Warm days and cool star-filled nights make ideal conditions for romance, outdoor adventures or just taking time for rejuvenation. If you can stir from the Adirondack chairs by the river, outdoor adventures abound, from touring back roads from Vermont to Maine with a picnic lunch or cruising Lake Winnipesaukee to hiking some of the over 150 miles of trails in the Presidential Mountain Range ~ some to the waterfalls for which the inn’s rooms are named.

    In the middle of Jackson, the Wildcat River drops in a series of short falls and cascades providing small pools perfect for cooling off and granite slabs for sunning. Swim in one of the area’s crystal clear lakes, the Saco River at Humphrey’s Ledge or in the heated pool at the inn, of course!

    Mountain biking is available at Great Glen Trails or Attitash, or take to the back roads for rides uphill and down. Go for a horseback ride at Black Mountain for scenic slopeside views. If canoeing or kayaking is your preference, there are many outfitters for exploring the Saco and Androscoggin (Saco Bound, Northern Extremes).

    Evening entertainment includes concerts and productions by M&D Productions, the Eastern Slope Playhouse in North Conway, Stone Mountain Arts Center in nearby Brownfield, ME, and The Barnstormers, America’s oldest professional summer theater, in Tamworth as well as local entertainment at many of the pubs in the area.

    Early September brings apple time with its crisp nights with still warm days ~ often overlooked as a wonderful time for exploring the Mount Washington Valley as seasons begin to change but summer lingers.

    Foliage Spectacular

    Autumn brings visitors from near and far to view the spectacle of vibrant colors combined with the mountain views and waterfalls. Color often begins about the third week of September. Reds, yellows, and oranges flow down the mountainsides until mid-October when colors begin to mellow before drifting from the trees late in October. Hiking, biking, canoeing and kayaking become different experiences in autumn, and views from a slopeside horseback ride are spectacular.

    At the beginning of October Pumpkin People appear all around Jackson in the annual tradition of celebrating foliage with creative pumpkin still lifes. Take a ride along the scenic Kancamagus Highway, 30 miles of spectacular viewing along the only National Scenic Byway in New England with many overlooks and short hikes to waterfalls.

    Fall Serenity Season

    Serenity increases as the leaves gradually drop in the forests and Mount Washington is frosted in white. Knowing visitors return to enjoy that serenity and occasional Indian Summer days. Golf courses are still open until late October, and late season hiking reveals distant vistas hidden by leaf canopies earlier in the fall. It’s a perfect time for treasure hunting in the many antique stores and flea markets, checking out museums and galleries, and shopping for the holidays at Jackson’s unique shops and North Conway’s many outlets.

    It’s also a perfect time for romance, whether curling up in front of the fire with a good book or great movie shared with that special person in your life, a friendly game of billiards or chess, or a candlelight dinner for two.

    Holiday Festivities

    Jackson puts on its best winter finery ~ holiday lights glitter in the evening darkness. You can stroll through the village to admire the decorations and browse the shops for unique gift ideas, then head for nearby North Conway for shopping specials. Winter fun begins with skiing and sleigh rides. Why not plan to bring home a freshly cut wreath or tree? It’s a festive time with Jackson’s Traditionally Yours Celebration and New Year’s celebrations throughout the valley. Come and enjoy the best the holiday season has to offer.

    4. Take I-93 South to NH Exit 40, Route 302 East.
    5. Take Route 302 East through Bethlehem, Twin Mountain, and Bartlett to Glen.
    6. At the traffic signal at Glen, there is a left turn lane for Route 16 North toward Gorham.
    7. Turn left on Route 16 North. The Inn at Ellis River is about 2.7 miles north of this intersection, and about 1/2 mile north of the covered bridge leading into Jackson Village on the right (do not drive through the bridge).
    8. Our driveway is on the left side of the highway with a lighted sign, just beyond a Sunoco station (the second gas station you will see after you leave Glen).
