Climb every mountain and ford every stream, they say – and if you need a place to start, Snowflake Inn is a good one to consider. Rivers to cross (OK, maybe by canoe)? White Mountains galore? This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning bed-and-breakfast’s got both, either right in its backyard or just a short drive away, plus waterfalls and hiking trails, if the first two aren’t your style. Nature calls, whether you’re inside, gazing out the windows to the sprawling grounds and gardens, or outside, following the stretch of the Wildcat River that borders the property’s six acres – and you’re going to want to answer it.
It’s not that you don’t have a choice: The inn itself is spacious and relaxing, and you’ll be more than comfortable sticking around and swimming in the jetted pool, recharging in the fitness center, snacking on your Saturday-night wine and cheese or roasting marshmallows at night over the fire. But how often can you go rappelling down a waterfall? (Ideal terrain lies within driving distance, at Great Glen Falls.) Or whitewater kayaking, which you can try on the Saco River? Not very, in most places, but here… well, don’t let the word “snowflake” fool you. This inn’s an ideal base for natural activities, all times of year.
Snowflake Inn’s accommodations include 17 beautiful, individually decorated King suites. Most include a window bench or window seat and a sitting room, while all contain a two-person Jacuzzi and fireplace.
Snowflake Inn’s spa is open from 7am to 11pm each day and includes a low-lit pool by candlelight, with 18 jets and a four-foot waterfall, to help you relax. Sign up for a Swedish massage, hot-stone therapy or body polish. There’s also a fitness center with technogym equipment.
It’s easy to begin a White Mountains adventure, like hiking or horseback-riding – you’re right in the middle of the mountain range. You can also kayak the Great Glen Trails, canoe on the Saco River and fly-fish right in the inn’s backyard. Restaurants and tax-free shops and outlets are also right nearby, and the Wildcat River’s so close you can hear it from your room. Make sure to visit Jackson’s covered bridge, then stop by Flossie’s General Store for souvenirs and delicious local maple syrup.
How to Get There
We stayed here after getting married on cranmore mountain. Sue goes above and beyond for her visitors. The entire inn is beautifully decorated with snowflakes year round. Sue is happy to make dinner reservations for you or give suggestions on things to do in the area. The continental breakfast is a nice touch in the morning as was the complimentary wine and cheese night on saturdays. The swim spa is very large and was very much enjoyed. Our personal suite was beautiful and we loved the touch of the swan towels and bath salts provided by the inn. A very calming and relaxing atmosphere especially with no kids allowed. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again!
This is our fifth time visiting the Snowflake, and it continues to be a great spot for a winter getaway. The pool spa is fantastic, as are the the in-room jacuzzi and fireplace. The setting in picturesque Jackson is beautiful while still being close enough to all of the nearby vacation attractions. The inn is tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable.
We just completed a three night stay at The Snowflake Inn and we must say, the place is awesome! Our room was spacious ( a suite really, with a separate sitting area), the entire place was immaculately clean, and the staff genuinely made us feel more like an extension of their family during the stay. The continental breakfast featured their own home made granola and freshly baked pastries each morning, and the inn featured a terrific indoor spa--a small swimming pool, really, with 90 degree water and powerful jets--so relaxing. We also took advantage of the optional couples massage which was a real treat.
We dined at several really good restaurants including the Wildcat Tavern which is directly across the street and the Christmas Farm Inn, less than a 5 minute drive away, and sleigh rides are available around the corner at Nestlenook, which we had done and totally enjoyed on an earlier visit to this area.
This is great spot, and, IMO, very reasonably priced for what it has to offer. We will definitely be back, and next time we'll be bring friends along as well!
I can't say enough about this place. We love staying here and will stay again when in the area! Very clean and quiet! You will not be disappointed if you decide to book at the Snowflake! It is located in Jackson Village and close to Conway.
Annual Christmas shopping getaway, love the Snowflake, relaxing and comfortable. Coffee by the fireplace, the hosts and the other guests were very friendly. Be sure to visit the photo galllery while there.
