Doing “The Whites”: The ski hills of New Hampshire.

 By Margo Pfeiff, Special to the San Francisco Cronicle – published January 26th, 2012

From atop Wildcat in glittering sunshine, I have to remind myself to pay attention to the run. While we’re not in the aggressively tall Sierra, the spectacular views of Mount Washington right in front of my face still seem dangerously distracting.

The Wentworth 18th Annual Ice Carving Competition

On Monday, January 9th we had nine carvers from around New England carve 300 lb blocks of ice into clowns, dragons, fish, a margarita bar, angels and even a road runner. Over the years we have seen these sculptures melt in as little as a few days or last until the middle of March.

Wentworth Weddings

Our wedding season is just wrapping up for the year 2011 at The Wentworth with just one small wedding left in December.
We just wanted to share with our readers a lovely review we just received on Trip Advisor:
Last week our daughter was married in a rather large wedding (180 guests) at The Wentworth Inn in beautiful Jackson, NH. Although quaint, quiet and intimate, it is very close to No. Conway (great shopping) and Mt. Washington, among many other tourist hot spots. It’s hard to describe how thrilled we are with our total experience! From the time we arrived, to the time we left, we felt like we were in someone’s romantic, beautiful, warm home surrounded by people whose only goal was to make us as comfortable and well taken care of as possible.
We delivered our daughter’s wedding paraphernalia (lots of it!) to the front door, spoke to Kathleen, the sales administrator (and amazing wedding contact person), and they took care of the rest! We had the rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and wedding reception all at The Wentworth. The staff handed out our welcome bags to our guests upon check-in, which was huge for us, as we had 125 of them! All of our decorations, etc. were set out perfectly for us for each event…we had nothing to worry about for the whole weekend!
The food for both the rehearsal and wedding was nothing short of phenomenal! Even breakfast was outstanding! We wished we could have met the chef, but he was obviously very busy cooking fabulous meals! Ian, I believe he’s the dining room manager, was always around in the dining room to help with anything that we needed, which wasn’t much, because everything was already perfect! In fact, he was even there for us late into the night during our reception! We wondered when he slept!
Our room was in the Fairlawn building…a gorgeous, spacious room with an outdoor hot tub…clean and amazing. We had guests staying in the main inn, Fairlawn, Amster, Sunnyside, Arden and condomiums…all were more than happy with their accommodations! We received NO COMPLAINTS from any of our guests in the 3+ days that we were there!!
We can’t thank the owners, Ellie and Fritz, enough for allowing our daughter to have the magical wedding that she had always dreamed of. Between the two of them, Ian, Kathleen, and the entire Wentworth Staff we had the best possible experience we could have asked for. We came away feeling as though we gained some very good friends! Thank you all so much! We can’t wait to go back!
So, if anyone reading this is even considering The Wentworth Inn for dinner, a weekend or week away, a wedding or any type of event at all, go ahead and book it! You won’t be disappointed!

Thank you so much to all of our brides and grooms of 2011 – each and every wedding was special and we wish you all many years of happiness.
