Jackson’s Pumpkin People

The Wentworth's entry for the pumpkin people

It is almost that time of year again when the pumpkin people of Jackson make their annual appearance. This will be the 25th year that Jackson Village has hosted this event. Starting in 1987 there were 17 entries and this year there will be 74 pumpkin displays. As you drive through the village with your self guided map pumpkin heads of many makes and models will pop up at local inns and businesses. We have seen Johnny Cash, John Lennon and Yoko, Doctor House, among many over the years.

Our entry this year is a trio of leprechauns all the way from Ireland with their pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Leprechauns spend all of their time busily making shoes and store alway all of their coins in a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If ever captured by a human the Leprechaun has the magical power to grant three wishes in exchange for their release. Another favorite pastime of these little guys is to play practical jokes on people.

Come and see us soon, Jackson at this time of year is such a beautiful time to visit. The colors are starting to change to brilliant red, yellow and orange and beautiful drives through our notches are one of the best ways to see the fall colors. Fryeburg fair is another popular way to spend a day in the White Mountains.

Whatever the reason, there is always a reason to visit us at The Wentworth and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Fall Foliage

You’ve read about fall foliage New England style… you’ve heard other people rave about it… you’ve even seen the brilliance of it in stunning pictures ablaze with brilliant yellow, glowing orange, fiery red, and rich brown… maybe it is time for a fall foliage visit to Jackson, in the center of the White Mountains of New Hampshire and to The Wentworth. With all of the recent rain and the cool nights it is expected to be a brilliant color season and what better location than to view the colors than at The Wentworth, your best choice for lodging and dining in Jackson, NH. This photo was taken on Thursday, September 22nd so you can see how brilliant the colors are already. Each day brings more color with peak expected to be sometime around the first two weeks of October.

Foliage Update

Jackson Falls, October 2009 There hasn’t been much change yet in the foliage in the White Mountains region, the area remains mostly green with sprinkled oranges and reds along waterways and swamps. However we just had our first frost last night (09/19/09) which will start the push for our area into colorful autumn glory. 

We are anticipating peak foliage around the first week of October, but if you want to see some color without the peak room rates try visiting us the week of September 25th through the 30th. Just a short drive north will bring you to some beautiful foliage. We will guide you on tours through the notches for optimal foliage viewing. Many say this is the best time to visit.
