Venture into the White Mountains

Explore the Area

The four-season Wentworth Inn lies nestled in charming Jackson Village in the scenic White Mountains of New Hampshire. We are just steps away from a host of exciting things to do right here in the Jackson area: mountains, rushing rivers, covered bridges, downhill and cross-country skiing, ice skating, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, hiking trails, a cog railway up Mt. Washington, festivals, theme parks, musical events, mountain biking, white-water rafting, art shows, antiquing, historical sites, theater, craft fairs, and almost any other recreational, sporting or cultural activity you can imagine.

Summer Activities

During the summer, fill your days with outdoor activities, including hiking, fishing, biking, golfing at The Wentworth Golf Club next door or at one of our many local golf courses, canoeing, horseback riding at Black Mountain just up the road, reading on our sunny porch or lounging in a mountain stream. Take part in the perennial sport of tax-free outlet shopping, or explore the endless number of nearby antiques shops.

Winter Activities

In winter, the local downhill and cross-country ski areas are open and snowshoeing allows all to explore our winter wonderland. By mid-December, weather permitting, our complimentary ice-skating rink is open. Overlooking the ice-skating rink we offer fire pits to warm up by – with a hot chocolate from our lounge, of course. For as many weekends as the weather permits, we create a fun and festive ice bar with creative cocktails, music and fun for all.

Quieter than nearby North Conway and serving as the gateway to Pinkham Notch, Jackson is the quintessential New England village. Here on the edge of the White Mountain National Forest, you’ll have access to all manner of outdoor pursuit, as well as insight into the local history. Visit the historic Trickey Barn and “Honeymoon” covered bridge, built in 1876, stroll the Village Loop past white steepled churches and see why this area of high mountains and rolling farmland has long been an artist and photographer favorite.

North Conway

Bustling North Conway, New Hampshire is a perennially popular White Mountains destination, and when you stay at The Wentworth Inn, you’re just eight miles away from its attractions and appeal – close enough for convenience, yet removed enough for peace and quiet. Hunt for the perfect antique treasure or outlet find, picnic at Echo Lake State Park, hike up to Cathedral Ledge, or enjoy fine dining or a pub hangout with friends.

Along the Kancamagus Highway

The Wentworth is convenient to the famous Kancamagus Highway, a 34.5-mile drive recognized as a National Scenic Byway. From some of the best fall-foliage viewing in the world to a number of scenic vistas of the White Mountains, this stretch from Lincoln to Conway is a must-do. Don’t miss Loon Mountain, the Hobo Railroad, the Rocky Gorge and the many restaurants and shops that line this portion of NH Route 112. The highest point is Kancamagus Pass at 2,855 feet – keep an eye out for hawks, moose, deer and more!
