Winter Sleigh Rides in Jackson, New Hampshire

It’s that time of year again when sleigh rides through the snow, hot cocoa steaming in the cold air and the Christmas season is upon us. Wintertime is our favorite and one of the busiest seasons in the quaint Granite State town of Jackson.

Though, home to many winter activities, we most enjoy the old fashion horse-drawn sleigh rides through the panoramic White Mountains, country roads, meadows and wooded trails. Enjoy a romantic date night, cuddling under a warm blankets and sipping warm apple cider, or with the family in a larger sleigh keeping warm with a hot cup of cocoa.

The Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour is one of our favorite sleigh rides. Named one of the five tasty tours by The Concord Insider, the Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour is a beautiful sleigh ride that takes us on a wintry, mouth-watering ride through a picturesque winter wonderland. We start the tour at the Nestlenook Estate where Santa awaits our visit. Holding our jingle bells and listening to the sweet sounds of carolers, we board the Austrian Dawn Sleigh and start our adventure, stopping at different lodges where we taste specially prepared chocolate treats. This event is so popular that it sells out each year, and you can only participate by staying at one of the participating properties, our beautiful inn being one of them.

This winter, grab your winter hat and mittens and book your getaway with us at The Wentworth. Enjoy all that the granite state has to offer including magnificent horse-drawn sleigh rides through the majestic White Mountains followed by a warm soak in the hot tubs in our romantic cottages and an evening of local source dining to captivate and inspire our guests.
