Greetings from the Lounge Corner

Greetings to new and old friends of The Wentworth, from your Ancient Steward of the Bar! Its Fall in the mountains, the colors are beautiful, the days sunny, and nights crisp. The season of fresh mint (from my garden) Mohitos is past, and its time to consider  Autumn refreshment.  How about a mug of Wentworth Cider? First press organic apple cider from Windy Hill Farm apples, fortified with Tuaca, topped with homemade whipped cream, and finished with fresh grated nutmeg I brought back from Grenada.  Excellent hot or cold.       Or you might like to relax in front of our  fireplace and enjoy Teddy Roosevelt’s favorite beverage, the Old Fashioned.  He was a whisky man, but I prefer Makers Mark bourbon myself. Either way, a great Fall drink.

From the zugermeister at the Shipyard Brewery we have seasonal Pumpkinhead Ale—perfect compliment to our Artisan cheese plate, one of our homemade soups, and a basket of hearty fresh bread from the Seavy Street Bakery.  Look for new appetizers and selections on our Lounge Menu soon. Fondue season begins with the first snowfall.

Ellie and Virginia have just finished the Fall decorations, your table by the window is waiting, and I look forward to seeing you in The Lounge!

With best regards, Tony Betz

Fall Foliage Update

The foliage seems to be turning fast this year. This is a photograph taken from the Jackson Falls a few years ago. Already we are seeing some of the bright red colors, certainly in the mountains. The Pumpkin People of Jackson make their debut this weekend, the Fryeburg Fair is always a popular event to visit and the Jackson Historical Society hosts The White Mountain Art Show and Sale with viewing available every Saturday from 10:00AM – 4:00PM until October 15th. There is so much to do and see at this time of year, we hope you will come and visit.
