Welcome to Our Bed and Breakfast in Beautiful Jackson, New Hampshire – Your “Home Away From Home”


Nestled alongside a sparkling mountain stream at the edge of Jackson, a classic New England village, the Inn at Ellis River is your perfect choice for a weekend getaway, to rekindle romance, skiing or hiking vacation, or to celebrate any special occasion. Choose from the Inn’s 21 rooms and rustic cottage, many with a two-person jetted tub and/or balcony with varying spectacular views and most with a fireplace. In our quiet setting, awaken to clear mountain air and a hearty country breakfast in our sunny dining room. You can relax and unwind in our cozy game room and pub, sitting room, atrium-enclosed 6-person hot tub overlooking the Ellis River, sauna, or in summer, the gazebo and outdoor heated swimming pool.

The quiet, relaxed, cozy atmosphere makes this a great romantic retreat. Yankee Magazine Editor’s Pick

You’re in the heart of the White Mountains, so you can spend your days exploring nearby Mount Washington, waterfalls and covered bridges, scenic drives, hiking, golfing, canoeing, fishing, mountain biking, tax-free shopping in North Conway, or just relaxing. In winter, cross-country ski, snowshoe, take a sleigh ride, snowmobile, or choose from one of five alpine ski centers nearby. Join us at the Inn at Ellis River, an award-winning romantic B&B, for a mountain getaway in Jackson ~ New Hampshire’s best kept secret. Voted “Best Bed & Breakfast” in The Conway Daily Sun’s “100 Best of 2019 Mount Washington Valley” (third year in a row). 

"INN" The News - Notes from John and Mary

~ Grand Reopening Date of the Inn at Ellis River ~

~ Starting Thursday, July 2, 2020 – Be Our Guest! ~

Please be advised that the Fireworks that had been rescheduled to Friday, July 31st, 2020 and the Wildquack Duck Race on Saturday, August 1st, have both been cancelled. 

First and foremost, we wanted to thank everyone for being so patient, kind and understanding throughout our closure. We received so many kind words from many of you via Facebook, e-mail, phone calls and letters in the mail. Thank you for all the amazing acts of kindness as well – we are so very blessed and will forever be grateful to you.

The governor of New Hampshire has announced the reopening of lodging for our state. There are many steps we need to take in order to reopen the Inn as safely as possible for our guests and our team. As you know, we have been working hard on various projects to beautify the Inn. Now, since we have received final guidance on regulations as they pertain to lodging, we can begin the actual reopening process and we are so excited about that! It is in the best interest of the Inn, our guests and our “Inn” team to execute these steps carefully.

Please note, we are taking reservations (over the phone or online) for stays starting July 2nd from New Hampshire residents. Please further note, we can also welcome people from out of state that can attest to a 14-day self-quarantine in addition to responding to questions regarding one’s state of health as it pertains to Covid-19 (this qualification step is in place until further notice).

Please note – our hot tub and sauna are closed until further notice

We will be following guidelines set forth by the CDC as well as the New Hampshire state government to the extent possible for the safety of all. This continues to be a fluid situation and the hope is by the time July arrives, things will be less restrictive. It is also possible things go the other way. We will be following up with you in the near future with the specifics of what you need to know. Stay Tuned…

In the meantime, welcome back! Be our guest – book a stay soon!

Please reach out to us with any questions you may have whether by e-mail (stay@innatellisriver.com) or phone 603-383-9339.
