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 were in town for a wedding, this inn was a perfect spot for us. My husband and I were drawn to the fact it was adult only and who knew it was over the with romance. The therapy pool was great and loved the other touches such as coffee and breakfast in the morning. Super comfortable spot!
We have been coming here every year for the past twelve years. Why, oh why do we keep returning to this place above all others all the way from England?
Because it is a piece of heaven! The area around Jackson is full of hotels, motels and Inns - but none of them compare to the comfort and pleasure of staying at The Snowflake.
The rooms, the amenities, the location, the people who live here and who work here are second to none. If we only had one holiday a year, this would be it.
If you are thinking about staying here, stop thinking and book it.
Just one tip, don't book online, always phone and you will bypass commission fees and get a much better deal.
A very memorable stay in this town centre Inn in Jackson. Sue is the owner and is extremely ‘hands on’ in her management style. Nearly always available to give advice on where to go and happy to advise / book restaurants.
The inn has a huge exercise room with plenty of equipment choices and there is also a small indoor pool.
The complimentary breakfast is a very casual affair. No formal seating but in a large reception area with sofas and a few chairs / tables. The breakfast during our 2 day stay was fresh fruit, yoghurt, home made cakes and unlimited help yourself tea / coffee / instant porridge. Sue would even be present at breakfast, wondering around in her dressing gown and offering help / advice if required.
Room was good, king size bed and gas fire.
Overall a really memorable stay thanks to Sue and her team in this adults only hotel.
