Snowed Inn: Winter Storm Orson from Jackson, NH

We hit the powder jackpot, again. Each year in early February we head north to the Christmas Farm Inn, located in the heart of Jackson, NH. It almost always snows. Quite possibly our favorite place in the state, the historic Christmas Farm Inn sits high on a hill overlooking Jackson Village. The Inn offers a variety of cozy accommodations and a warm welcome after a long day of skiing with customary coffee and cookies.

Winter Storm Orson picked up just as we arrived and began our ascent of the Doublehead Ski Trail to the Doublehead Cabin, only a short drive from the Inn. The snow was deep and the turns were fantastic. Also nearby are Black Mountain Ski Area and Jackson Ski Touring Foundation (Jackson XC) with endless groomed and back-country ski trails. We awoke Monday to well over a foot of snow and decided to head back out. We had hoped to ski the Wildcat Valley Ski trail (from the summit of Wildcat Mountain Ski Area) but given the weather we opted for lower elevation, still we found ourselves knee deep in powder. Before heading home we stopped at MOAT Mountain Smokehouse and Brewery for a flight and a bite. Trekking back over the scenic Kancamagus Highway was an adventure in itself, topping off another successful two-day-cation in New Hampshire’s North Country.

    Hi Marylynn,
    We are heading to NH for a honeymoon this May! Would you be able to suggest a specific room in the Carriage House of the Christmas Farm Inn?
    Thanks so much,

    Hi Jenn,

    We’ve stayed in several rooms in the Carriage House and all were beautiful. For maximum privacy request a top floor end unit.

    Congrats and enjoy!
