Such a delight! Pearl Cascade was perfect. Listening to the river all night, viewing the fire from the bed and the jacuzzi, great breakfasts and grounds... We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary celebration - we'll be back!

What a Find!

4.8 on June 13, 2013

We looked for a cozy, comfortable unique B&B in the White Mountains and found the Ellis River Inn. Great location, outstanding hospitality and comedy of Halloween all together in one place.


Our new favorite place!

5 on May 27, 2013

I planned a surprise birthday getaway to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. It was our first visit to the Inn, but it certainly will not be our last! From our first greeting, every detail was attended to. Frank gave us a gracious tour, showed us where we could find menus for local restaurants, and made a great martini in the pub. Christine walked us through breakfast - which was beyond excellent. (the homemade granola was amazing and the bacon is heavenly). We also had a gourmet picnic and a birthday cake with champagne. We stayed in the Theroux Falls room, which was cozy and so comfortable. The jacuzzi tub and fireplace were excellent. We are looking forward to going back when we can stay longer. If you've never been here, don't hesitate. It really is spectacular!


Just Fantastic!

5 on April 17, 2013

Fourth time there. Place seems to be better each time. Looking forward to our next visit.


Mid-Winter Get-Away!

5 on March 10, 2013

Great place to get away and find some peace and relaxation. Lots to do in the area including hiking, skiing, shopping and just enjoying the town. The Inn at Ellis River is in a perfect location for walking around Jackson. The staff is exceptional and there's also opportunitite to meet and socialize with other Inn guests, if you want too! This was our second visit and it is now an annual event for us.
