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
This inn is on a beautiful property on the picturesque village of Jackson. Rooms are spacious and spotless. Common areas are attractive and welcoming. Good breakfast treats. S’mores on the deck by the fire. Very nice and helpful owners. We met quite a few repeat visitors. We can’t wait to return this Winter.
My dad passed away a few weeks ago from bladder cancer. I've felt totally lost and exhausted. I have traveled to Jackson, NH so many times. I have stayed at many hotels and bed and breakfasts. I will never stay anywhere else after staying here. Everything was perfect. The heated pool with the jets was amazing. After two years of dealing with cancer in regards to my dad, my back and neck are a mess due to stress. That pool did wonders. The gym is spotless and so many machines. I was in my glory. My boyfriend and I played pool which was on the second floor. Even playing pool in the environment was peaceful. Always something to eat and drink in the common area. The decor is beyond welcoming. The owners were fantastic. Very friendly and provided an incredible experience for both of us. I have been home now for three days. My mind and self have calmed down big time. I wanted someplace quiet and peaceful to stay, and we definitely got it here. The grounds are just beautiful with the various flowers and ornaments. You will love it here and not want to leave. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. To the owners, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
Snowflake Inn is a lovely property perfectly located in beautiful Jackson NH. Walking distance a number of restaurants (no in house restaurant or bar), we were pleased with our accommodations. The inn and rooms are immaculate. We appreciated how quietness of the rooms - even the a/c, ducted through the ceiling as virtually silent -Great job on that issue as even major chain hotels (Hampton Inn's, I'm looking at you!) have in room units that kick on and off. We also appreciated the fact that its an adults only inn which added to the serenity. The hosts do a great job of making you feel welcome. Whether its offering to make dinner reservations, serving up terrific evening deserts or supplying s'mores fixin's for the fire pit the inn really has the feel of a large B&B.
