A gateway to the White Mountains

In the foothills of the White Mountains just to the north of White Mountain State Forest National Park, Jefferson is the perfect vacation destination for exploring this beautiful wilderness. Choose from romantic wooden chalets in flower-filled mountain meadows to expansive wooden homes under the shade of forest pines for your Jefferson vacation rental. Then, head out into the rural splendor for hiking, biking, fishing, wildlife spotting and kayaking adventures, or unique and life-affirming swims in the cold mountain lakes and streams.

Get outdoors in Jefferson

Jefferson is an adventurer's paradise. From canoeing on the Androscoggin River to driving spectacular mountain passes, you can expect stunning scenery and wildlife encounters. Several tour operators offer wildlife tours around the White Mountain State Forest, including helicopter flights over pristine lakes and waterfalls or evening jeep safaris to spot moose grazing the open meadows. The streams and lakes are popular with swimmers and anglers alike – you can expect to be treated to rainbow trout in the clear waters and in local restaurants. Or, for something a little more orderly, head to the scenic Waumbek Golf Course for rolling greens framed by distant mountain peaks.

Family-friendly days in Jefferson

If you're staying at your Jefferson vacation rental with kids, don't miss a visit to the Santa's Village theme park. In the snowy depths of winter, its North Pole theme provides true seasonal fun. That said, it makes for an equally fun family day out during the summer months, when you can enjoy the little water park as well as all the rides, slides and trains. The nearby Fort Jefferson Fun Park offers more family-friendly rides, water slides, go-karts and a rollercoaster – all with an Old West theme.

Jefferson through the seasons

In winter, expect snow and freezing temperatures perfect for winter sports. Snowshoeing and cross-country ski trails can be easily accessed from your Jefferson vacation rental. A number of major downhill ski areas are also within an hour's drive, including the Bretton Woods ski resort. Late spring, summer and fall are all glorious seasons for hiking and biking and exploring the mountain scenery. Whether you're hiking alongside roaring meltwater in spring, across scented flower-filled alpine meadows in summer, or under a canopy of red and golden autumnal leaves in fall, expect jaw-dropping nature at its best.

Hike the White Mountains from Jefferson

There are several challenging day hikes that can be enjoyed close to Jefferson vacation rentals. Mount Jefferson is a looming mountain in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains, and the third tallest mountain in New Hampshire. The glacial cirques of Jefferson Ravine, Castle Ravine and the Great Gulf, the Monticello Lawn of green alpine grass close to its summit, and the spectacular views of Mount Washington to the south make this a popular, if challenging hike. Wherever you hike in this park, you can expect to encounter incredible wildlife, sparkling waterfalls, pristine mountain lakes and dramatic snowy peaks.
