The hotel

Kicking off your shoes and curling up with your morning coffee in the rocking chair on the inn’s front porch, as you stare off into views of the Presidential Range or the Plourde family’s flower-stuffed gardens, may just put you at risk of not seeing anything else on your stay at Christmas Farm Inn & Spa. A 15 acre estate with a collection of clapboard buildings painted in traditional New England shades of rust, periwinkle, sage, and pure white, the oldest property dates back to 1778 and houses rooms with festive names like Cupid and Blitzen. After a complimentary country-style breakfast, you could head to the nearby adventure parks, scenic drives, or North Conway outlet shops. Or just enjoy this Jackson inn’s pools, hot tub, pub, dining room, and family attractions like nightly movies.

I have traveled all over the globe and I must say that in Jackson NH there is one extraordinary B&B that surpasses many 5 star hotels in price value. Their rooms, many are suites or private cottages, are roomy, bathtubs are hushed with jets and their sitting area is top notich. Without a doubt it is their food that surpassed my wildest dreams. … Read more

Simply fantastic. Their dinner selection, variety and exceptional preparation makes this B&B my new favorite place to go for skiing and relaxing weekends. On site too is an Aveda Spa well worth checking out. Read less

My husband and I stayed for two nights in The Dasher room. While weather was cold, the room was warm and cozy and beds comfortable. It was a short getaway and didn’t have a chance to use the spa or pool, but the included full breakfast was delicious! Waitress Kathy was a charm and ready to give great tips on what to see and do.

The Inn is also close to great shopping and next time we will take up cross country skiing as it’s right nearby. Read less

My wife and I took a long weekend to this great spot. Jackson, NH itself is a unique cool location, nestled in the White Mountain National Forrest. It’s surrounded by beautiful mountains and great skiing and recreation. There are several great restaurants and pubs with wonderful locals who make you feel like you’re home. The Christmas Farm Inn looks and feels very homey. The rooms themselves are what you might expect, basic, clean, but with character based on the fact many of the buildings are old. We stayed in the Salt Box which (I think) was built in 1778. Breakfast was included with the reservation and was good. Better was their dinner. Saturday nights are game night with specials around deer, elk and other such game. Highly recommend these dishes, some of which are on the regular menu too (not just Saturday). They have a nice indoor pool and whirlpool along with basic gym. We took advantage of this and enjoyed it. Nothing fancy, but clean and functional. Kind of like New Hampshire! If you want a great place where you can stay, eat, and have a base to explore the White Mountains you won’t go wrong with Christmas Farm Inn. Read less

Christmas Farm Inn and Spa is one of our favorite places on earth. It’s not just that it is nestled in the incredible beauty of the White Mountain National Forest region. The Inn itself goes back to the 1700's (circa 1786). It's steeped in history and New England charm! The owners and staff are hard working, attentive, friendly, prompt and professional. Any issues we had were dealt with either immediately or within a day. They were resolved efficiently and effectively. We stayed in the North Pole Cottage. The beds and pillows were wonderfully comfortable, the linens clean and crisp. The breakfasts and dinners were, as always, fantastic as was the service. The pool was refreshing and clean. The hot tub was suitably hot and clean. Exercise equipment was in good working condition. Discounts are available for ski hills in the area. Considering the site is built into the side of a mountain, the roads were remarkably well kept, plowed and sanded early so guests staying in the Carriage House, Family Barn or cottages did not have a problem getting to breakfast after a nighttime snowfall. My wife commented this time (we have stayed at this Inn on numerous occasions) that the Christmas Farm Inn is like its own little town. I am delighted to see that this little ‘town’ is being so lovingly and professionally cared for and continues to be so welcoming to travelers like us. Thanks to all for a wonderful New Years holiday again! Would recommend this Inn without hesitation and have done so. Read less

The place has a cool historic vibe and it’s always cleaned and maintained. The resort gets involved in all the Jackson must-do’s (pumpkin people, etc.) The restaurant has great menu selections and flavors for every meal and liking, and the bar / cocktails are fantastic. Highly recommend booking early, especially any spa visits. Great place! Don’t miss it. Read less
