The Christmas Farm Inn, Jackson, New Hampshire

SmarterTravel Spotlight: Christmas Farm Inn, Jackson, New Hampshire

New Hampshire is a popular tourist destination, and while Vermont was bursting with people at the beginning of April for the eclipse, New Hampshire had a much narrower path of totality, so it wasn’t as popular a destination. My husband and I decided that New Hampshire might be better for eclipse viewing and decided to find a spot an hour or so from totality so we could drive up the morning of the eclipse. Our biggest challenge was finding somewhere kid-friendly, with enough room for myself, my husband, and our two kids, with an indoor pool (a necessity when traveling with small children). I found the Christmas Farm Inn, which seemed like the perfect spot- it ticked all of our boxes and looked perfect for a family getaway. 

Location: Jackson, New Hampshire

Located just north of North Conway, Jackson is a small town off the beaten path a bit, yet still convenient for all of the local attractions. 

Property: The Christmas Farm Inn

The Christmas Farm Inn is located on an old farm dating back to the 18th century. It features many amenities to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Amenities include: 

  • Heated indoor pool and hot tub. 
  • On-site spa.
  • On-site restaurant.
  • Fully equipped fitness center.
  • Fire Pit.
  • Cottages, standard rooms, and other unique stays.
  • Kayaks, bikes, metal detectors, and other outdoor amenities are included in your stay. 

Rooms: Traditional, Cottages, Barn Stays

I stayed in the Log Cabin, a cottage with ample room for me, my husband, and our two kids. The loft is more or less just a bedroom on the second floor, with a gated opening that looks out over the downstairs—perfectly safe for our five- and two-year-old kids. The opening has folding doors that can shut, so if people are downstairs, they won’t disturb those sleeping upstairs. There is plenty of room for a pack n’ play to be set up either upstairs or downstairs. The bathroom is on the small side, so it was a little tight for families like ours, who tend to have multiple people getting ready simultaneously. Other accommodations on the property include traditional rooms at the Main Inn and Salt Box, carriage house suites, studios in the family barn, and six more cottages ranging from 1-2 bedrooms. 

Dining: Restaurant and Pub

The on-site restaurant, 3North, offers a traditional New England atmosphere and dishes for breakfast and dinner. The breakfast menu is simple, with eggs, pancakes, omelets, and typical breakfast meats. The dinner menu is a bit more substantial, with appetizers, salads, and various entrees. The Mistletoe Pub serves seasonal cocktails, beer, wine, spirits, and a smaller food menu.
