Romantic Valentine’s Day Getaways- Why to choose Jackson, NH

Here’s why to choose Jackson and the Inn at Ellis River for your romantic getaway this February. It was named one of the 10 most romantic ski towns in the East, and whether or not you ski, romance is guaranteed in this winter wonderland. Here are five ways to your Valentine’s heart:

Take a starlit or moonlit Snowshoe Tour to wonder at the beauty of the heavens above the snowy White Mountains.

  • Great Glen Trails offers a Starlit Tour with a naturalist from Tin Mountain on February 14, February 21, and March 7, 2015, from 7-8:30 pm. Call 603-466-2333 for reservations.
  • For the romance of the full moon, plan on Jackson Ski Touring’s Snowshoe Tour to Christmas Farm Inn on February 3, 2015, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Warm up with cookies and cocoa at the Inn, or complete the evening with dining at their restaurant. Call 603-383-9655 for more information and reservations or e-mail

Book the Winter Romance Seat and you’ll sip champagne while you snuggle under a fur blanket and enjoy your semi-private ride at the back of a 12 seat sleigh. Feeling even more romantic? A One Horse Open Sleigh ride is available, too. Call 603-383-7101 for reservations, or just book the Inn at Ellis River’s Sleigh Bells Ring getaway package that includes a sleigh ride, dinner at a local restaurant, champagne, and chocolates.

A candlelight dinner for two may be the fastest way to your Valentine’s heart. Choose from the White Mountain Cider Company, one of Open Table’s Top 10 Diners’ Choice Best Overall Winners for New Hampshire, or perhaps the Wentworth, among Open Table’s Top 10 Diner’s Choice for most romantic restaurants in New England.

What better way to set the mood for romance than returning to your room with fireplace and jetted tub for two at the Inn. Book our Valentine’s Package (available throughout February), and you’ll enjoy a bottle of champagne or sparkling cider and chocolate dipped strawberries, a rose, dinner one evening at the Wentworth, and a memento of your stay.

Last but not least, don’t forget to linger for a kiss under Jackson’s covered bridge, known as the “Honeymoon Bridge” where stealing that kiss is a century long tradition.

It will be a romantic getaway to remember!
