We loved everything about this inn from our beautiful room with fireplace and jetted tub to the scrumptious breakfast to the game room where my husband and I enjoyed playing pool and checkers. It was the perfect place to unwind! Can't wait to go back!

This was a weekend trip to do the 17th annual cookie tour our first time and it was amazing!
Seeing the different inns was fun but WE had the BEST inn on the whole tour!!!!!!!
This place is a true Jackson NH GEM
The inn was all that we could have dreamed for and so much much more!
Lyn & Frank Christine, Tamara & Peter Christie & Tini
Owners/Innkeepers Innkeepers Housekeeping & Breakfast Staff were awesome.
The attention to detail in every way from rooms to breakfast(which were terrific) was so wonderful
We even had a 12" snowstorm overnite and the next morning ALL the guests cars were cleaned off!
Do yourself a favor and if you get a chance to stay in Jackson NH check this place out and next year check out the cookie tour......lots of fun

Room Tip: All rooms we saw were great...can't go wrong with any of them

This was our 6th trip to the Inn. Each and every time we enjoy it more. The Innkeepers Frank and Lynn were gracious as always. Breakfasts that make your mouth water {especially like the bacon and cider doughnuts). The room was warm and cozy, with the fireplace and sounds of the the river. We arrive each time with a renewed feeling of being home

We certainly did not expect to find the facilities we did, the swimming pool and Jacuzzi were a surprise. we could not resist having a swim even though it was nearly 5pm and the pool area was all in shade. It was cold but worth it for the fun. The Jacuzzi soon warmed us up. the pub was also fun to use in the evening, having the pool table and darts virtually to ourselves was a treat. The garden and stream were a lovely peaceful area to sit in. Teas and coffees were available at all times for guests to help themselves and there was a nice selection of afternoon snacks. the inn keeper was very helpful about places to eat and guided us on a lovely circular walk taking in the falls, a few shops which were sadly closed because we arrived late, the covered bridge and the Red Fox where we had a lovely meal.

Room Tip: We had the champney falls room, overlooking the swimming pool. A lovely room we were happy with. I w...

We are delighted you had a wonderful stay at the inn, and had the opportunity to enjoy its amenities such as the peaceful riverside setting, the heated pool, hot tub, and gameroom/pub. We hope you will return on your next tour of New England and be able to enjoy even more of what the Jackson area offers.

My boyfriend and I came up to Jackson for a weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arriving at the inn, we were greeted so kindly by the innkeepers and taken for a tour of the inn, with a lovely story behind the inns origins. The inn was so welcoming and inviting, and our room itself, although small, had a quaint and relaxing vibe to it. The fireplace was an added bonus, as it was pretty chilly that weekend and the extra heat was not only nice, but romantic! We ate breakfast both mornings we were there, and I'd have to say it was by far the best breakfast i've had while visiting the white mountains. The breakfast was included in the room price; it was continental as well as entree style, and the apple french toast melted in my mouth. The inn had its own bar, and although we didn't order any drinks, it was nice to know that we didn't have to travel far if we wanted to!

The inn is located in a great area, only minutes from Conway, and right down the road from the Red Parka Pub, one of my favorite restaurants in the white mountain region. It is also next to the river, and i'm sure it looks fantastic in the summer months being able to sit by the water and enjoy the scenery. My boyfriend and I loved our time at the inn at ellis river, and will be back soon!!

We go back to Jackson, NH frequently and almost always stay at the Inn at Ellis River - feels like home away from home. Everyone is so pleasant, cheerful and accommodating - they even made dinner reservations for us in town prior to our arrival. This trip we stayed in the beautiful Paradise Falls suite with a sitting room that has a walkout to a balcony overlooking the grounds and Ellis River, bathroom with Jacuzzi and bedroom with king sized bed and fireplace. The bed was so comfortable and the surroundings beautiful. The room was not only beautiful but also immaculate. A delicious breakfast was included with our stay and served each morning preceded by choices of baked goods, fresh fruit, homemade granola and yogurt, juice - an endless flow of fresh coffee! There is coffee and teas available for the guests anytime of day in the dining room and fresh baked goodies are there too each afternoon. While at the inn there are many areas for relaxation, reading a good book, doing a puzzle or playing a game of pool. The Inn is owned by Frank and Lyn who have made this a great place to stay and have surrounded themselves with great staff like Christine who, in addition to working tirelessly, does so with a smile on her face and makes it her business to spread the laughter and smiles to each and every guest; Teenie that not only keeps the rooms immaculate but is also in the business of "smile making". We were introduced to one of the new innkeepers, Peter, who also seems very nice and working hard at making everyone's stay effortless!

We had previously spent four nights at the Inn at Ellis River in 2010 and had a wonderful time there. We never thought that our travels might take us back to the New England region again, but when we were planning our current holiday, we decided to make a little detour so we could go back to this beautiful area and, of course, the Inn for one night. The location is idyllic. Prettily situated beside the Ellis River, it was very quiet and yet an easy walking distance to the centre of Jackson (and the covered bridge). The rooms aren’t big, but are certainly beautifully decorated, appointed and very clean. We especially like the fireplace in the rooms and loved the ambiance it provided. On our previous visit, which was during the busy autumn time, we had the pleasure of staying in two rooms, the Nancy Cascade and the Arethusa Falls which were both lovely, though the Nancy Cascade is smaller. The pretty bathrooms were on the small side and the hand basin was in the room which we found great if someone just wanted to clean their teeth while the another person was using the bathroom – no waiting. This time we stayed in the larger Crystal Cascade room with it's lounge area, en-suite and balcony overlooking the backyard with the river to the side. As we were travelling for a couple of months and had four large suitcases, we found the room size to be perfect. The queen size bed was luxuriously comfortable and the room impeccably clean. So if you need a little more space, there are larger rooms to be had. Just check the website as it gives you ample information to make the perfect decision for you requirements. But a word of warning, book early as this Inn is popular!! The home cooked breakfasts were delicious and the afternoon treat of freshly baked cookies was eagerly awaited. We enjoyed spending time in the bar/billiard room with its open fire and bar area, enabling friendly banter between the guests. The staff welcomed us like old friends which was lovely. Nothing was too much trouble, you had only to ask. They provide a home away from home for all their guests and we loved chatting to the Innkeeper, Christine, with her sense of fun and good humour and who never tires making sure that her guests are having an enjoyable stay. I maybe dreaming, but I would love to return one day and stay for a longer period, maybe even to experience my first White Christmas!
