FUN ON THE WATER
Spring and summertime are about staying cool in the heat. What better way to do that than to have some fun on the water? Whether it is swimming, tubing, or taking a canoe out for some sightseeing, our White Mountains Inn is in a great spot for finding something near H20.
We have an indoor pool that is available year-round, so you can swim laps even If there’s snow on the ground outside. In July and August, our outdoor pool is open to our guests.
Around Jackson, there are areas with lots of pools and small waterfalls to explore with plenty of spots to picnic and large flat rocks to sunbathe on.
Some places to swim include:
- Diana’s Baths Waterfalls
- Echo Lake State Park
- Jackson Falls
- White Lake State Park
- Swans Falls Campground
Conway Lake is about 20 miles south of our Inn. The meandering Saco River is roughly twice that distance. These waterways are great for tubing, canoeing, kayaking, or paddleboarding. Rentals are available (with shuttle service to and from the Saco River and Conway Lake) from Northern Extremes Canoe & Kayak in North Conway. You can enjoy a lazy float down the river or paddle a canoe. Saco Bound Outdoors in Conway is another great option for outdoor enthusiasts with canoe rentals available.

Closer to our inn, you can enjoy the beautiful waterfalls and covered bridges that are typical of our corner of New Hampshire. There are a number of covered bridges within just a few minutes from our inn! Some of these bridges include the Ellis River Covered Bridge and the Bartlett Covered Bridge. Of course, no trip to Jackson is complete for couples without visiting the famous Honeymoon Bridge—no honeymoon is necessary!
The Honeymoon Covered Bridge is a wooden covered bridge that spans over the Ellis River. It resides at the intersection of Route 16 and 16A. The bridge was built in 1876 and includes driving lanes as well as a sidewalk on the inside of the bridge that was added in 1930. Jackson’s beguiling symbol for more than a century has been the bridge, which received its name from the tradition of lovers kissing under it for luck.
History of Christmas Farm Inn Name
The Inn is not 'Christmas themed' but rather received its name from the gifting of the property at Christmas time – renamed the ‘Christmas Farm’ in honor of the season and spirit of the gift.
