Jackson vacation rentals

Enter the White Mountains in Jackson

Swathes of spear-like spruce trees pop up on the horizon, while oaks and chestnuts dress the low ridges closer to town. Half-timbered homes and handsome Georgian cottages all line up between the leafy streets, colored red and yellow and forest green beneath the hulking outlines of the beautiful, brilliant White Mountains in the distance. Jackson vacation rentals are your ticket to one of the most elegant highland resorts in New Hampshire. Hiking and gorging, river rafting and canoeing, mountain biking and waterfall hopping, skiing and snowboarding are all on the menu, making it a veritable mecca for outdoorsy types both summer and winter.

Delve into the forests and the peaks in Jackson

The enviable location of Jackson town, up in the heights of the snow-mantled White Mountains, between thick forests of fir trees, crashing waterfalls, and babbling creeks, means it's a real hotspot for anyone who likes to get out and about. You can wax down the walking boots and hit the seemingly endless trails that connect the painted New England villages in fall, don the salopettes and carve through the ski fields in winter, or cool off in icy mountain streams during the height of summer. Meanwhile, travelers with kids in tow can ride scenic railroads or enjoy local fairy-tale theme parks.

Mountains and majestic castles beckon in Jackson

There's no question about it – Jackson's main attraction surrounds it on all sides. Just look up from anywhere in the town and you'll see the rugged rises of the White Mountain National Forest, where trailheads weave this way and that, creeks babble, and cross-country ski routes cut through the woods. Other Jackson vacation rentals will offer good access to the duo of golf courses in the valley, and the family-friendly Story Land theme park, where crooked castles and rumbling rollercoasters are all part of a day out.

Jackson is alive all year round

It's hardly a surprise that Jackson vacation rentals are popular all year round. In the winter, they offer access to more than 250 ski runs, with a season that typically goes from December to April. Then comes the summertime and the wealth of hiking routes that open between May and September, followed closely by the fall. That's when people say the painted towns of New England are at their prettiest, and the red-yellow blooms of the White Mountain National Forest at their most photogenic.

Living in the shadow of Mount Washington

At 6,200-foot-high Mount Washington towers over the tops of Jackson to the north, heralding the zenith of the White Mountains that surround the resort on all sides. It's this highland patchwork of windblown peaks and forest-clad valleys that forms the outdoorsy playground around the town. People flock here to wander the nature trials and spot bald eagles and black bears, or to hit the ski pistes of Wildcat and Bartlett. Others come to wade through the rivers doing some fly fishing, or for intrepid peak-bagging excursions in the summertime.
