The award-winning Inn at Ellis River in JacksonNH is serenely surrounded by the White Mountains with a trout stream flowing closeby and hiking trails winding to the summit of Mount Washington.  The twenty-room Inn and separate cottage are furnished with traditional pieces and enhanced with modern amenities like fireplaces and two-person Jacuzzis.  Deciding what to do with your day after your gourmet country breakfast will be your most difficult decision – golf, canoeing, kayaking or fishing, followed by a dip in the outdoor heated pool or soak in the hot tub.  Evenings may be enjoyed in the game room and pub or relaxing with a selection from the DVD library. 

This summer, take advantage of the Inn’s Moose on the Loose package, with two nights lodging, breakfasts, afternoon refreshments, two tickets for an evening moose tour departing from Gorham, and surprise souvenir gifts from the Inn.  The package starts at $329 during the quiet season through June 28.

Experience all of this outdoor beauty with a special package that lets you sample a variety of outings.  After your first night of relaxation at the Inn, a hearty picnic basket will be packed for you to take off to the hills for hiking.  After you’ve spent a rejuvenating evening and had a good night’s sleep, you’ll be treated to a 2 to 3 hour horseback ride on the mountain trails.  This special is available all summer and starts at $399 for two guests.
