“Not so Nice...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We recently had a getaway to this Inn for 2 days. IN a nutshell here is what you should know:

1- the food is bad. Breakfast is Ok and the dinner was really terrible. I would never go back to the restaurant again. Our waitress was nice, however.
2- The Inn is very nice. Needs some updating for sure....but was very clean and people were friendly. The pool and jacuzzi are very nice. Very relaxing place.
3- Spa- very unprofessional. Not a true "spa" experience at all. Felt rushed and the steam room smelled like must/mold. Do not recommend.

We are disappointed that your experience differed so much from other guests'. We generally receive excellent feedback on both our breakfast and dinner offering as well as for our Spa. We are sorry if your service felt rushed, we can only assume that your treatment happened to fall on a busy day. Our nail room has 4 stations that are likely to be in use at the same time with guests talking and enjoying themselves. We also have 6 treatment rooms which serve us well as the Spa is popular and attracts many guests. The steam room does not have mold in it, I can assure you.

We wish you many happy to returns to the White Mountains.

“Lovely atmosphere and great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The food at Christmas Farm in Jackson is delicious, the service wonderful, and the setting couldn't be better! No wonder they've been around for so many years. It's a treat no matter the season and we look forward to returning.

“Another great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Thanks to Trip Advisor we did not have a bad dining experience while in Jackson, NH. The young lady who took care of us on Monday night was new to the job, but we never would have guessed it! She was attentive and professional and made our evenning totally enjoyable. The food was terrific and we were able to carry on a conversation even though the restaurant was nearly full. A big plus for us "older" travelers.
I even purchased a hat and coffee mug! Please do yourself a favor and visit this location!

“Great Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Very family friendly. My son was starving and tired each time we went for dinner and they kept things moving. Bread was on the table as soon as we sat down.

We host many families in summer time and having young children ourselves we know how important good food and service is at the end of a looong day at Story Land or Santa's Village. We hope to see you again.
