An Epic Journey Into The Sub-Arctic World of Mt. Washington

 

 

All aboard the Mt. Washington SnowCoach as we ascend the highest peak in the Northeastern United States

Last week two lucky ladies from our Front Desk had the experience of a life time while aboard the Mt. Washington SnowCoach.  Growing up in this area, Jamie and Meaghan are no stranger to Pinkham Notch, Mt. Washington, or its surrounding valleys. Yet, these two locals had an exceptional first-time adventure!

The Mt. Washington SnowCoach is a 9 passenger tour vehicle that was custom designed to climb up the Mt. Washington Auto Road in winter. Instead of four wheels, this vehicle is equipped with an aggressive track system that is perfect for traveling along the extreme terrain. Guests are transported up to over 4,000 feet above sea level, into a sub-arctic world above tree line. These fascinating vehicles were recently converted to propane, or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), which is a safe, clean-burning, and high energy alternative fuel. Want to learn more? Click here.

As you leave the base of Mt. Washington and begin the ascent your tour guide, who is also an experienced SnowCoach driver, begins to tell the history of the mountain. They are always full of fun facts, and they even stopped twice so that we could jump out to take photos! The weather on Mt. Washington changes in a minute… literally.

Check out the photos to see what I mean!

Jamie and Ron enjoy a blue bird sky and they can see for miles. On the other hand, Meaghan and Darwin enjoy a firsthand experience of Mt. Washington’s ever changing weather! While both couples embarked on the same journey, you can see how different each experience was.

When planning your next winter adventure, keep this unique adventure in mind! The Mt. Washington SnowCoach is located only 15 minutes north of Jackson Village, NH. Enjoy a day of shopping in the Tax Free Outlets at Settler’s Green Plaza, embark on a journey into the ever changing weather system of Mt. Washington, dine with us in our Certified Farm to Table restaurant, and finish your day soaking in our Signature Deluxe Suites, equipped with Private Outdoor Hot Tub.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Wentworth!

Historic Wedding Proposal

In 1869, Joshua Trickey built The Wentworth as a wedding gift to his daughter Georgia Trickey and her husband-to-be, General Marshall Wentworth.  Before they were to be married, General Wentworth respectfully asked Mr. Trickey for his daughters hand in marriage.  We are lucky enough to have this very personal and intimate hand written letter at our historic hotel to this day.  It reads:

New York Nov 30th, 1869

Mr. J. Trickey My dear and respected Sir:

I thank you very much for your favorable answer to my proposal. I never can be grateful enough for the happiness you have bestowed upon me, rest assured that I shall always strive to merit your approbation. I think I can make your daughter happy- we love each other devotedly and are very anxious for your consent to marriage the 1st week in June 1869- and if we can get your consent we shall be very happy- it is very hard for us to be separated from each other for so long- but if you give us your consent to our union then it will not seem half so long and besides it will make us very happy.

I am very anxious to see your lovely daughter once more- it seems an age since I saw her. You can imagine how I feel to be separated from a lady that I love better than my life for two long years and not once having the pleasure of seeing her in the whole time.

Hoping that you will consider my proposal in as favorable a light as you did my other- I thank you again very kindly and close- hoping to hear from you soon.

Yours very respectfully, Marsh C. Wentworth
219 East 69th Street, NY

20th Annual Ice Carving Competition held at The Wentworth

This past Monday January 5th, the whole of Mount Washington Valley surely felt the chill in the air. Mother Nature was gracing us with her presence of fresh snow and cold temperatures which aided to the snow-making at local New England ski areas. Here in the quaint village of Jackson we featured an annual tradition to help combat the cold.  

The 20th Annual Great Ice Carvers Invitational Ice Carving Competition began at 10:00 am on that sun filled Monday morning. Seven extremely talented gentleman, Dennis Hickey, Stephen Kesheb, Shawn Grenier, David Soho, Murray Long, John Shew, and Wayne Miller, were given a large block of ice and asked to create their masterpiece.

As passerby’s stopped to admire the men at work with their chainsaws, flat chisels, ice knifes and various bits and grinding tools, one could see that these blocks of ice were being transformed into beautiful works of art.

Once the judges met to tally the votes, a signature Wentworth Luncheon was offered and the competitors could finally sit back and enjoy the view. It was a spectacular day to be in Jackson Village, New Hampshire.

First Place: Shawn Grenier
Second Place: Murray Long
Third Place: John Shew

We hope to see you all next year at the 21st Annual Ice Carving Competition!

Christmas Can Cure: A Memorable Event

“The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier
who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war”
 – Douglas MacArthur

Christmas Can Cure Logo

On Monday, December 15th, the Wentworth had the honor of participating
in an evening event: Christmas Can Cure. This spectacular event was the closing gathering for chosen Veterans and their families, and individuals who volunteered to help make their Christmas memorable. The gift of uplifting the human spirit continues on daily for the rest of our lives. The lowering of the flag Tuesday morning was a memorable ending for the Christmas Can Cure event. This organization has a complex
mission, one that with enough assistance from community members, can continue
to strengthen our heroes. Originally formed by Jackson New Hampshire native,
Dr. Gerald Carrier and his family, it has grown into something magical for the families who participate and for those volunteering their time.

Christmas Can Cure sets out to provide safe and healthy environments for the chosen Veterans and their families to experience the magic of the perfect Christmas. Through the partnership with The Wounded Warriors Project, this year’s mission focused on
two families, which consisted of three Veterans. The recipe for healing began with elegant accommodations for the two families at our Inn, The Wentworth. Once settled in, a delicious buffet was served for supper and the Veteran’s and their families had the chance to unwind and begin to ease into the new surroundings. A flag raising ceremony followed the next morning, and then the mission truly took flight. Over the next few days, activities and experiences that the Veterans thought would never be possible again, were made reality. Activities included ice skating, spa treatments, alpine skiing, casually strolling the downtown North Conway shopping district, Polar Express rides to meet Santa Clause, winter tubing, barber shop visits, and even date night. The goal was to create a place where mental and physical strain took a back seat and it was successful.

Two of the Three Deserving Veterans we had the honor of welcoming at The Wentworth

Veterans all over the world have suffered, witnessed, and experienced severe difficulties. The Wounded Warrior Project and Christmas Can Cure offer a helping hand for those Veterans.

They deserve to be honored, cherished and helped through their healing process, and this is exactly what these organizations offer. More information about The Wounded Warrior Project can be found at http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/#  , and for the Christmas Can Cure at http://www.christmascancure.org/aboutthemission/ .

“What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the
present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow
with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace”
 - Agnes M. Pharo

The entire Wentworth Staff would like to thank all Veterans and current members serving in the military. Their unwavering service to our precious country and the protection that they give, deserves a sincere thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
