Cross-Country Skiing in Jackson, New Hampshire

Comments Off on Cross-Country Skiing in Jackson, New Hampshire

A winter stay at The Wentworth Inn puts some of the best cross-country skiing in the country right at your (gloved) fingertips. That’s a bold claim, but one we don’t imagine will provoke much argument: After all, as a guest of ours you’ll literally be steps from what some consider the finest Nordic trail system in the eastern U.S., nestled in the wintry embrace of the mighty White Mountains.

The Jackson Ski Touring Foundation Trails (and Beyond)

Our Inn lies just across the street from the base lodge of the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation, which since the early 1970s has maintained an outstanding system of cross-country routes in our picture-perfect New Hampshire village of Jackson via a special-use permit from the White Mountain National Forest and in collaboration with the town and dozens of private landowners.

The Jackson Ski Touring Foundation system accounts for more than 150km of both Nordic and snowshoe trails accommodating a wide range of skill levels and adventurous ambitions. The recreational possibilities are even more extensive when you consider that these trails link up to Appalachian Mountain Club routes in Pinkham Notch as well as the extensive backcountry winter trails of the White Mountain National Forest.

Courtesy patrols through the Foundation monitor the trails, there to give you a hand if you need it.

You can purchase one-day or multi-day passes to use the trails or opt for a season pass, which is a great idea for regular winter guests of The Wentworth. The Foundation rents all the equipment you need if you’re not bringing your own skis, poles, etc., including pulk sleds for hauling little ones about on the snowpack.

The Cross-Country Ski & Snowshoe Package at The Wentworth

We offer a high-value accommodations package for anyone who might be considering spending some quality time out on Jackson’s world-class ski trails. Our Wentworth Cross-Country Ski & Snowshoe Package provides one or two nights of accommodations at our elegant and historic Inn, a daily full country breakfast, a four-course dinner in our Wentworth dining room, and—the kicker—an entire day’s enjoyment out on the Jackson Ski Trails, complete with a traditional Swiss Fondue apres ski.

 

Winter odysseys in New England don’t get much better: a combo of our luxury hospitality and some hearty exercise and sightseeing on some nationally renowned Nordic trails, the whole shebang backdropped by the lovely and looming White Mountains, greatest in the Northeast! (By the way, if you’re bringing your own equipment, we offer safe and secure ski storage right here at The Wentworth.)

Learn more about the Wentworth Cross-Country Ski & Snowshoe Package and book yours right here. We’ll look forward to seeing you out on the trails—and welcoming you back to the cozy Inn for a well-earned hot beverage and a fireside warmup!

Romantic North Conway Hotel for Valentine’s Day

Comments Off on Romantic North Conway Hotel for Valentine’s Day

A friendly heads-up: Valentine’s Day is inching ever closer on the calendar and will be here before you can say “sweetheart.” If you’re hoping to really wow that special somebody of yours this year, we invite you to spend February 14th (or thereabouts) with us here at The Wentworth Inn, where the two of you will enjoy the finest in New England hospitality amid the swoony winter-scape of New Hampshire’s White Mountains.

The Romance of The Wentworth

Romance comes easy here, what with the postcard-worthy charm of our Jackson Village (complete with a covered bridge) and the inspiring natural vistas at every turn. But the broader setting itself is only part of the appeal: Our Inn itself is tailor-made for romantic idylls.

After all, our grand, European-style hotel is awash in architectural beauty, and furthermore its origin story is one of old-fashioned romance. James Trickey built The Wentworth in 1869 as a wedding present for his daughter Georgia and her betrothed, General Marshall Wentworth. We still have a copy of General Wentworth’s handwritten letter to Georgia’s father, formally asking permission to marry her. (You can read that lovely note here.)

Thus love is woven into the very fabric of things at The Wentworth Inn, making us the perfect choice for a Valentine’s Day getaway. Besides the perfection of your lodgings—which might take the shape of one of our deluxe rooms, which alongside a gas fireplace and a king bed offer either a private outdoor hot tub or an oversized whirlpool tub in the bathroom—you’ll have access to our gourmet, farm-to-table restaurant: no better place for a date-night dinner!

Romance Packages at The Wentworth Inn

Now’s the time to arrange your Valentine’s Day retreat at The Wentworth in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. To really pull off a masterpiece of a lovers’ holiday, consider one of our Wentworth Romance Packages, which you’ll most definitely want to lock down sooner rather than later!

Romance Package A includes some chocolate-covered strawberries delivered to your room after check-in, plus an hourlong couples Essential Escape Massage. Romance Package B includes those sensuous strawberries, adds a bottle of sparkling wine to the proceedings, and expands your couples massage to an hour and a half. Finally, Romance Package C includes all of B’s perks plus a dozen red roses to take things into really classic Valentine’s Day territory.

Reserve your February getaway to The Wentworth Inn today, and we’ll look forward to showing you and your main squeeze a Valentine’s Day to remember!
