The Wentworth in Jackson, New Hampshire
As if torn from the pages of some happily-ever-after novella, The Wentworth is an elegant and historic inn in New Hampshire, and has all the trappings of a perfect romantic getaway. First and foremost, its location in Jackson, in the heart of the White Mountains, offers privacy and seclusion. The selection of luxurious accommodations include rooms and suites with hardwood floors or plush carpeting, sleigh or four-poster beds, fireplaces, whirlpool bathtubs designed for two, and private outdoor hot tubs. The inn's dining room can only be described as one of the region's most elegant with a menu to match. Dress for dinner and make your way to a table for two where a succulent meal of fresh regional fare is paired with a thoughtful and impressive wine list.
While the New England countryside immediately conjures up images of ski togs and hot toddies - and rightfully so - the summer months are also filled with an abundance of outdoor activities. Meadows once covered in snow are filled with blankets of wildflowers inviting passersby to enjoy an impromptu hike or delightful picnic lunch. You may want to consider fishing, biking, golfing or canoeing along a mountain stream. Take a scenic drive through covered bridges, stopping at quaint villages to peer inside antique shops. Serious shoppers will want to take advantage of the tax-free designer outlets nearby. Summer nights may even be better than their daylight counterparts with crisp mountain air that is invigorating and a sky filled with stars.

Reviews for The Wentworth
We have family that lives close so this is where we normally stay. We like the older, historic hotels and are not bothered by the normal shortcomings that you wouldn't find in newer hotels. However, this time we stayed in one of their condos, and not the "old" hotel. The condos, or town houses, are close to the hotel but they seem to be stuck in the '80's or haven't been renovated since then. The ceilings are low and even the steps to go upstairs are odd, almost as if they are too short. Whomever stayed before us obviously had a dog and the furniture was covered with dog hair. The condo also smelled "smoky," as if someone had left the flue closed at one point and started a fire. Lastly, we never could figure out the remotes downstairs for the TV. Just like the system we have at home but we couldn't get it to work. Staying in the condo was a deal, given we had a group, but I'm not so sure I would stay in one again. It will be back to the "old" hotel building for us. That said, the staff there was as excellent as usual and the food in the hotel's restaurant exceeded our expectations. The hotel is very close to Attitash, the Mt. Washington Mountain Road, and Wildcat, as well of a host of other activities. We have found that staying north of North Conway is the way to go. During high season, the traffic through North Conway is horrible, and by staying north of there, we avoid the hassle. So, we'll stay again, I'm sure. I think it's the best hotel in the area, with the Eagle Mountain house a close second.

My husband and I were very impressed with the Staff, Accommodations, and Breakfasts! Upon arrival we found out we were upgraded due to construction near the room we booked. Our upgrade was absolutely beautiful with large King 4 poster bed, gas fireplace, large windows looking out towards town with a window seat, enormous bathroom with jacuzzi tub, complete with bath salts and candles! The bed was very comfortable. There was also two arms chairs to watch TV from. The room had speakers in all corners of you wanted to listen to your favorite iHeartRadio station! In the afternoon there is coffee and tea with fresh cookies. During our stay they put out Raspberry lintzer squares...absolutely divine! There is a piano bar in the evening and they serve dinner in the dining room. Breakfasts are included in room rates and you order off a menu; everything from omelets to pancakes. They also have a buffet you help yourself to consisting of juices, a huge assortment of cut fruits, yogurt and granola, pastries and muffins! It's really quite amazing! You can eat enough to fill you until dinner! If you enjoy coffee, they make the best ..very smooth..breakfast is top notch! We were on a ski weekend and bought our tickets at the desk. They are lower than at the hill or Liftopia . The staff is very pleasant and friendly. I can't say enough good things about this lovely hotel! We will definitely be visiting often!

Just returned from a two night stay at the Wentworth. All of the positive reviews made this an easy decision for us, so we felt the need to submit one also. From the front desk staff to the incredible food, we don't have any complaints. Our expectations were met and exceeded. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Suites have surround sound in every room, including the hot tub room. The all inclusive breakfast and formal dinner are huge bonuses. Well worth every penny spent and will absolutely go back. For the price and what you receive, you will not be able to find a better experience.......
First the numerous pluses...great location, excellent staff (front desk great especially), and very clean and well kept. And the food is truly amazing. We had dinner and breakfast included in our stay -this is well worth it! Like many inns and B and B's, sound travels. So this is one reason I didn't give it a 5. We really could here every door closing and some of the louder guests. We actually stayed in Arden on second floor but still had sound issues. And the only other downside which may have just been a random occurrence were some pretty odd characters in the bar. Not to be snobby but it's a cute bar in a nice place and both nights we were there for a quiet drink we had some pretty loud and obnoxious folks drinking. There's no music so you are pretty much dealing with what you get and you hear ALL OF IT. Not sure the solution there. All in all tho a lovely place to visit. I would come back.

We stayed in Sunnyside Room 504 with private Jacuzzi for 2 nights on the four course dinner and breakfast package paying just short of $900 and had high expectations. Upon arrival we were given the key to our room and was a little disappointed not to receive any offer of help with our luggage. The room itself was large and homely with a comfortable bed, but did have a view to the front of the hotel. The first thing we looked at was the Jacuzzi and unfortunately we noticed that the hydraulic piston on the lid of the Jacuzzi was completely broken, not only making it difficult to lift, but it kept falling down and sagged on one side when raised so you couldn't sit on that side of the Jacuzzi. We went straight to Reception to ask them to come and look at the Jacuzzi to either repair it, or let us move rooms. I was greeted by the Manager who argued with me and stated that they inspect all Jacuzzi's and that there were no problems with it. I asked the Manager to come and look at the Jacuzzi and he refused stating that we weren't using it properly. We were furious, for over $400 a night you do not expect to have problems with your room or management which argue with their customers and refuse to investigate reported issues. We visited the restaurant both nights for the 4-course meal and was again disappointed. On the first visit it took staff 20 minutes to locate a bottle of white wine, which had been stored with the reds and was therefore warm. They did put the bottle in an ice bucket, however, at this point we'd already had our first course without a drink and had warm white wine for the rest of the evening. The food itself was very odd, from raw vegetables to dry chewy meat and jarred sauces. For the type of clientele this hotel is trying to attract the food is completely sub-par. I wish we hadn't bothered with the package and experienced the local restaurants. The breakfast was adequate and the hotel is nicely situated. I would not recommend eating at the hotel, but the rooms were lovely, as long as you don't have any problems and need to speak to the management.
