First time visit

5 on January 02, 2017

December 16-18 2016 Our first visit to the INN was a fantastic weekend. Our reservations were handled by Christine and she did everything perfectly. She made sure everything was covered and set up for us. Mary and John are the nicest innkeepers!! Rooms and experience were beautiful and the food was phenomenal. Looking forward to our next visit. This visit started a new tradition of an annual Christmas trip. Thanks to Mary, John and staff!

Relaxing weekend getaway

5 on August 14, 2016

Absolutely amazing. Second time staying there with my boyfriend and we will definitely be back many times more. Mary and John are incredible and make you feel extremely comfortable the moment you walk in the door. Even if it weren't for the bacon we would still go back. But take my word the bacon is to die for.

Perfect Wedding Ceremony & Reception

5 on July 29, 2016

My wife and I had a small ceremony and reception at the inn on July 4th. Mary, John, and Christine were more than accommodating for all of our requests and needs. Every staff member we encountered was happy to help on a moment's notice. I cannot understate the amount of work and time they put into making our wedding day perfect. We would definitely recommend this Inn for other events or weddings! Multiple guests (including my wife and I) were so happy with our stay that we will be returning again next year! We stayed in the Ellis River Cottage, a separate building that was like having our own little vacation home. Our friends and family were more than happy with their rooms throughout the Inn and we spent a lot of time by the river, playing darts, pool, and other games at the bar, and on our balcony. There's a surprising amount of ways to spend your time at the inn and in the area so we will have to go back to see what we missed. Breakfast was phenomenal and we enjoyed all the drinks at the bar. Can't wait to return!

Charming, Comfortable Inn Experience Time and Time again !

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Ellis River on two occasions last winter for ski get aways and loved our time spent here! The beds are super comfortable with feather beds and luxurious linens. We had a fireplace in the rooms we've stayed at and loved having them to relax and fall asleep by. The afternoon treats and availability of hot drinks anytime is a homey touch! We enjoyed the hot tub during an evening snow storm ...which was gorgeous. They have an enclosed room with glass all around so you can watch the snow falling. Breakfasts have been wonderful and I especially like the homemade granola and fresh fruit that is put out before you order a hot entree! They also have a billiard room with all sorts of games, which we always spend some time in..meeting guests and talking with staff. We love the area so much we had our wedding here at the Inn this past Sept, and all of our guests loved being together and everything the Inn and town had to offer! The wedding and reception all went off extremely well and the staff took good care of us! We look forward to a few ski trips here this season !!

Memory Trip

5 on September 29, 2014

My mother took my 3 sisters and I on a wish trip of hers to see fall leaves in New England. Our stay at the Inn at Ellis River was just perfect. We arrived just as new owners Mary and John began their life long wish of operating an Inn. They are guided by a wonderful staff lead by the most gregarious innkeeper, Christine, who makes everything so personal for the guests. John whips up wonderful breakfasts! In fact, at the Embassy Suites in Boston, Mom and one sister had waffles from the buffet. After one bite, they both said, "these are not John's waffles." We loved the location of the Inn as we took easy day trips to the quaint and beautiful surrounding areas and then returned to the quiet of the Inn.

Wonderful romantic getaway

4.4 on September 11, 2013

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!

Lovely Inn

My and husband and I had a wonderful stay. We had an amazing time - cozy, clean, delicious and romantic.

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.

Go and Stay Here!!! It's Amazing!!!

5 on October 19, 2012

These people were phenomenal!!! We had our wedding in their pub room and it was great. We stayed two nights; that was great. Frank and Lyn were around a lot and we saw a lot of Christine and Christie. Everyone was such a huge help. They were friendly and kind. The breakfasts were delicious, the room was wonderful, clean, and just everything we could want. The view was great. It was so hard to leave! We will absolutely return within the next few years.

Return visit didn't disappoint

5 on October 13, 2012

Frank and Lyn are two of the most competent and caring innkeepers in the business and they have put together a staff that makes each visit magical. Every needed is anticipated and provided before you even know you need it. The breakfasts, the cookies all beyond the best. Each room individually decorated and perfect. It was fun, it was perfect, anditwas magical. We'll be back. Dave and Bonnie/San Deigo,CA

The Best of the Best!!

5 on September 10, 2012

My girlfriend and I have stayed at this inn three times. Two of the three times were in the same week! This is a wonderful place to stay. We love everything about the place, all of the rooms are so cozy it's like being home. The last time we went they even upgraded our room to a room with a deck and hot tub just because! If you want to visit the white mountain are make sure you pick the Inn at Ellis River for your stay. There's a cozy game room where my girlfriend and I would play pool every night and chat with whoever is around like Frank or Christine. Everyone is so nice here and Lyn makes the most delicious breakfasts that you could imagine. Needless to say the place is a winner and we couldn't stay anywhere else, the Inn at Ellis River is the best!!

Another wonderful weekend

5 on September 03, 2012

Once again, hats off to Lyn and Frank and the staff at Inn at Ellis River. Just spend another wonderful weekend there and enjoyed every minute of it. The innkeepers and staff go over and above to ensure that you feel like the most important person there. The special touches, the delicious snacks and the best bacon anywhere......all reasons why we always return as often as possible. Thanks as always for a wonderful weekend......Anthony and Marianne LaMonica

Spectacular late summer relaxing weekend

5 on August 27, 2012

What a marvelous place!!! My husband and I were just so touched and pleased with the warm, friendly, accomodating staff, an immaculate, beautifully decorated room with its own patio, jacuzzi, fireplace, and oh so comfortable feather bed, and so so many more wonderful details, even chocolates in your room and home made cookies every day! The Inn at Ellis River is in the quaint, picturesque town of Jackson, the mountains are all around you, and there are so many activities to do. Every breakfast is better than the last one, you will never find a better, more delicious breakfast than at the Inn at Ellis River!! Cannot wait to go back, counting down the days!! Oh and on our last night, Yes, We saw a Moose right in front of us!!! How Awesome is that! LG-RI

Memorable Stay

5 on July 21, 2012

The sound of the river rushing past, the moonlight streaming in the balcony doors, and the luxurious bedding made the inn an unforgettable experience. From welcome to farewell, Lyn and Frank were gracious hosts. Their knowledge of the White Mountains and local restaurants led to delightful discoveries throughout the weekend.

Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer

4.6 on July 15, 2012

My wife and I stayed here while celebrating our Anniversary. The room was beautiful. The daily breakfast was good and extremely filling; we skipped lunch all three days because we weren't hungry again until the evenings. A small river borders the property the Inn has chairs nearby so you can sit and/or read next to the river--very relaxing. They have a quiet bar in the building that we did not utilize, but it was nice to know we could easily grab some wine if the mood struck. All that said, what really set the experience apart was the friendliness and thoroughness of the innkeepers and staff, and their eagerness to bend over backwards to do whatever they could do to make the trip more enjoyable--whether it was making it easy for us to check-in very late (after Midnight), bringing us a chilled bottle of champagne late at night, or making dinner reservations on our behalf, among much more. We wish we would have had more time to spend lounging around the Inn but had already booked most of our weekend before arriving. Next time we stay, and there will definitely be a next time, we will make sure we give ourselves plenty of time to relax at the Inn.

charming inn in a very nice location

5 on July 09, 2012

This inn has all of the things that I enjoy at a bed and breakfast. Beautiful clean rooms, gorgeous grounds, gourmet breakfast with choices, and a staff that is warm and friendly. Jackson NH is a great place...and the Inn at Ellis River is a very good choice. I met a lot of people at the inn who come back year after year, It is that charming.


5 on July 01, 2012

Upon finishing our second week-long stay at the Inn AND getting engaged, my fiancé and I can say without a shadow of a doubt, The Inn at Ellis River is the best Inn on the Eastern seaboard. The breakfast each morning is worth the price of admission alone. We will be dreaming of bacon until our next visit to the Inn in December. The InnKeepers and staff made us feel like family. The accommodations, specifically Pearl Cascade where we resided for 7 wonderful days, was absolutely spectacular. From listening to the calming sounds of the river at night, to the luxurious linens an decor, everything about this room and property was perfect. We give the Inn at Ellis River the highest recommendation. Anyone who visits Jackson, NH should stay at this Inn. Why? Quite simply: it's THE BEST.


5 on June 17, 2012

Just a wonder place by the river to relax and enjoy the time together


5 on June 11, 2012

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. Everything was excellent and we couldn't have been more pleased. We look forward to returning for future anniversaries!

Perfect Romantic Escape

5 on February 05, 2012

My husband and I recently enjoyed our fourth stay at the Inn at Ellis River and, as usual, we cannot wait for our next escape! Lynn, Frank & Christine are the perfect hosts and their attention to detail is exceptional. We lead, as most of us do, extremely busy lives and I can truly say that during our stays at Ellis River all of worries magically melt away upon entering their beautful Inn. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotless - we especially love the fireplace suites.

Excellent choice!

4.4 on January 30, 2012

we frequent B&Bs whenever we travel. these innkeepers have thought of just about everything and leave no details unattended. the rooms are exquisitely decorated and extremely comfortable. breakfast and snacks were superb and out of the ordinary. comfortable common spaces. an extremely welcoming inn. they couldn't do enough for you to meet your every need. we'd go again if we returned to the area without looking at any other accommodations.

perfectly located in the White mountains

4.4 on January 05, 2012

The three times we have stayed here have always been perfect. Every member of the the staff is warm and friendly. The location of the inn is perfect for any number off activities while still being set back away from the rush of the valley. Breakfast is amazing, best bacon anywhere! Rooms are warm and cozy and really clean! Looking fore-ward to going back soon!

Long Weekend Stay

4.6 on December 27, 2011

We have stayed in Jackson, NH over the last 15 years. This is the first time we stayed at the Inn At Ellis Reiver. This visit past all expectations and we will be staying there in the furture. The Innkeepers and staff were outstanding.


5 on November 13, 2011

This was our 3rd or 4th stay at the Inn at Ellis River and we NEVER tire of it!! The rooms are cozy, the beds are SO COMFORTABLE, and the innkeepers, Lyn and Frank, as well as the staff, especially Christine, are SO FRIENDLY,WARM,AND INVITING!! This is a top-notch inn! Just came home today and already looking forward to our next visit! You HAVE to experience this inn, if only for Lyn's bacon!! Love you guys!!! Marilyn and Jeff Mutter

Just perfect!!

4.8 on October 27, 2011

Just returned from a 2 week trip to New England, we stayed at this beautiful inn for 2 nights, it just was not long enough. Everything about the inn was bliss. Lynn and Frank are very welcoming and helpful hosts. The breakfasts there are to die for, all fresh homemade items, different both days. When we returned each afternoon there were homemade cookies and refreshments waiting for us. The inn is set in a beautiful location, the interior is so cosy and comfortable on bad weather days you really would not need to leave. Our bedroom was decorated beautifully with great attention to detail. Just one problem 2 days was not long enough, we would love to return. Julie and Dave England

Beautiful Inn, Incredible Stay!!

4.6 on October 20, 2011

A fantastic fall foliage weekend getaway, made even more memorable with a stay at the beautiful Inn at Ellis River. Great experience all around - from the comfortable, well-appointed room (Sparkling Cascade) with the fabulous view, to the delicious breakfasts and afternoon treats, to the helpful and friendly staff. We will definitely stay here again!!!

A wonderful stay!

4.6 on September 14, 2011

The inn was wonderful! The innkeepers were really nice, kind and helpful. The breakfast that was made is amazing (Try the bacon, you will love it) The room (Bridal veil) was great. A walk out deck, a spa tub for two and a fireplace and AC. I spent most of my days outside the inn for hiking and shopping but the Inn had equipped itself for things to do with hot tubs, a heated pool, a sitting room to do puzzles, pool table darts and movies as well as free wifi. Even the cleaning woman pay attention to our needs (without us asking) when she noticed that we keep using the bubble baths she needed to replace/stock so she end up giving us a some extras which let us pick the scents we wanted. The area of town was charming with its waterfalls and covered bridges and never seem too busy. Plenty of things to do in the area with the white mountains, shopping, dining and attractions. I stayed 6 days for my honeymoon and we still didn't have time to do everything! The inn keeper we very willing to fullfill our needs to insure our honeymoon stay was wonderful and on the wedding day itself, Lyn did not pause to help me zip up my wedding dress since my family was running late to help me. The inn has many packages/specials and I look forward staying here again.

An extemely comfortable stay.

5 on September 05, 2011

On arrival you are made to feel like one of the family. Within the very comfortable rooms are plenty of special little touches and VERY soft and fluffy towels. Then there is breakfast. WOW! The goumet brekfasts are exceptional and not to be missed.And then there are the afternoon cookies.Yum! The worst thing about staying at Ellis River is having to leave. We can't wait to return.

Wonderful "at-home" feeling!

Just returned from a quick trip to Jackson, New Hampshire where we stayed at The Inn at Ellis River. It was our very first "bed and breakfast" experience and this inn and the outstanding staff exceeded our expectations and made us wish our stay was much longer. The entire Inn is spotless and if there is something you need that is not provided all you have to do is ask. What a wonderful place. We will be going back very soon!

The Best Ever in New Hampshire

4.0 on August 15, 2011

My daughter and I stayed at The Inn at Ellis River the last 4 nights in July 2011. The beds in the large rooms are very comfortable. The food is fresh,extremely high quality, very large portions. Breeakfast times are flexible in the morning. Fresh cookies are always available if you are around after 3pm. The grounds of the Inn are gorgeous! There is so much to do outside in New Hampshire. The Inn has magazines and books if you come uncertain of what to do. If the weather isn't right for your plans, it is very easy to find something else to do. Of course, simply hanging out at this gorgeous relaxing Inn is also a plus. The longer you stay, the more you want to stay. I can assure you the Fall Season is probably booked early as the grounds around the Inn have gorgeous trees. The staff are all wonderful hosts. I definitely will plan to stay again. Susan, Nashville, TN

A place to relax

4.0 on August 15, 2011

We stayed three nights in mid July on a New England tour for our 30th wedding anniversary. We have used USA B&Bs for several trips now and the Inn at Ellis River did not disappoint - the location is quiet and a good centre for touring the area with several really good restaurants a short drive away. The inn keepers, Lyn and Frank, were very friendly and made us very welcome. The facilities were first rate and really exceeded our expectations. Breakfast was always a treat - good quality, good choices with very attentive personal service. Our room was beautifully decorated and maintained - very comfortable. Our only complaint was there were too many of the Stave jigsaw puzzles to complete in the time we had - so we'll have to come back!

White Mountain Heaven

4.0 on August 07, 2011

My boyfriend and I spent four nights at this incandescent gem of an inn, and, by far, it was our most memorable vacation yet. Upon arrival, Lyn, one of the innkeepers, graciously greeted us, gave us a tour, and made us feel welcome and at home, with her warmth and sense of humor. Frank, the other innkeeper, was consistently warm and hospitable, as well, and provided wonderful service at the bar inside of the inn. When we weren't exploring the local area, my boyfriend and I basked in all this wonderful place had to offer- a well-equipped game room, the atrium enclosed hot-tub, and a sauna (all of which were ALWAYS clean and maintained meticulously). Perhaps our favorite night was spent eating dinner and having wine in the illuminated gazebo on the property, listening to the quiet swish of the river. A gorgeous vacation in picturesque nature in a perfectly clean, cozy, luxurious place (with exceptionally delicious cider donuts!). Cannot wait to return in the fall or winter.

A Perfect Getaway!

4.6 on August 03, 2011

My husband & I stayed here for our 9th anniversary. We were very excited to get thee. When we arrived, we were greeted with a smile by Lyn. She welcomed us & told us all about the inn, the history of each room, and what the inn offers now. There is so much to do here! There is a game room where you can play pool, darts, chess, checkers, etc. They also have a full bar in the game room. They have a wide variety of DVDs that you can use free of charge. Breakfast was GREAT! You start off with a continental style breakfast, followed by your choice of a hot plate - some days an egg quiche, pancakes, frittatas, etc. Every morning it changes. Each day we came back to our room, there were Lindt chocolates waiting by our bed - how cool is that??!?! The river in the back of the inn was gorgeous. There is a sitting area there that I personally could have stayed there all day. We hope to return to this inn every year to celebrate our anniversary. We would highly recommend this inn!

Wonderful Experience!

5 on August 02, 2011

Beautiful, clean, inviting, relaxing, BEST staff ever!! Makes you feel like family. Such a home feel and the smells of Lyn's cooking and baking, OH SO GOOD!!!

Such a magical place.

5 on July 31, 2011

The area around the Inn is just beautiful and the Inn itself is beyond words. The Inn's team made our stay perfect.

Top Notch!

4.8 on July 26, 2011

This is probably the best B&B we've stayed at. The grounds are beautiful and right on the Ellis River. It's very easy to get to (right off Route 16) but you'd never know the highway was there. The main building is beautifully furnished and has two sitting rooms, one with a pool table, darts, a bar, and a fireplace. There's a small heated pool in the front. We stayed in the Pearl Cascade room which was large, had a view of the river, and a private jacuzzi. The breakfasts were delicious. We had special dietary requirements and they were met without any problem. The best part are the hosts Lyn and Frank (and Christine who seems to be the main assistant). They are friendly and flexible. Breakfast starts at 8am but on the days we left earlier than that to hike, they left us fruits and cakes (which Lyn bakes) to take with us. When I had a question about adjusting the air conditioning in our room (the controls are a little complex) not only was the room set the way we wanted when we returned that afternoon, but they left a photocopy of the manual in our room in case we had any other questions. The lobby/main room also has many guide books lying around detailing all the different activities in the White Mountains area, as well as dozens of menus from local restaurants. This place is top notch!

So much more than expected!!

4.8 on July 25, 2011

This was our first visit to the Inn and if we are fortunate enough to get back in the area we would definitely stay here again. Our room was beautiful, a jacuzzi tub for two and a gorgeous view of the river and mountains. We did a lot of hiking in the mountains during our stay so we were not able to enjoy all the Inn had to offer, I would like to return and have nothing to do other than spend the day relaxing at the Inn. The gazebo was a lovely place to sit with our afternoon refreshments after a morning of hiking. The balcony outside the room was a perfect for relaxing and listening to the river. The breakfasts were delicious. Lyn and Frank were very gracious hosts and you couldn't help but to feel right at home immediately. You will not be disappointed with a visit to the Inn at Ellis River.

a wedding paradise

5 on July 23, 2011

my husband and i got married at jackson falls and stayed at the inn at ellis river. we had our own private cottage that was absolutely awesome. we can't say enough good things about this place, as we loved it so much, we're going back for our 1st anniversary and those to follow. lynn and frank are wonderful hosts and the place was gorgeous, clean and incredible. can't wait to go back!!!

a wonderful experience

5 on July 23, 2011

Our recent stay at the Inn at Ellis River was just wonderful. The people were friendly, helpful and fun. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. Our daughter and her husband highly recommended it to us and we were so glad that they did. The food was outstanding both at breakfast and at afternoon snack time. We defiantely would like to return.

Always and excellent experience.

5 on July 22, 2011

My wife and I frequent the Inn at Ellis River, and it has always been a wonderful experience. The rooms are great, super-friendly staff, and amazing bacon!!! We have some dietary issues and they are amazing at accommodating our issues. Whatever season, our stay has been superb, and we plan on returning for years to come.

A Little Piece of Paradise

4.4 on July 22, 2011

We visit the White Mountain area pretty frequently and have stayed at many different bed and breakfasts. We happened upon Inn at Ellis River this last trip and are so lucky we did. Everyone was so friendly, helpful and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful and tranquil, just like their website promised! The room was beautiful and comfortable with a queen sized bed and a daybed which was the biggest and most cozy daybed we had ever seen! The full breakfast was delicious and we were more than entertained by Christine (won't spoil the surprise for others ;o). There is a crystal clear outdoor in-ground pool, an indoor jacuzzi, balconies in each room with comfortable chairs to sit and enjoy the sounds of the stream and nature, a screened gazebo with comfy wicker rockers. Perennial gardens to enjoy everywhere! It is impossible NOT to relax here! I haven't even mentioned all the amenities - needless to say that we were very pleased and will be returning on our next trip to the White Mountains in a couple of months :)

Our 40th Wedding Anniversary

5 on July 13, 2011

My husband returned again this year, July 1st through July 6th, to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary. The Innkeepers and all of the staff are so friendly and gracious. The room was all that we hoped it would be .... roomy, clean; just perfect! We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already reserved the same room for 2012.

Great stay. Would highly recommend!

4.6 on July 10, 2011

Everything about our stay here was wonderful. The owners were warm and friendly, the food was delicious, and the place was beautiful and cozy. I wouldn't have changed a thing and would go back with my boyfriend.

Our Favorite B & B!

5 on July 06, 2011

We returned to the Inn after 11 years and mutiple stays at other B&B's to find that the Inn at Ellis River is still our favorite! Lyn & Frank, the new owners since our first visit, have not only maintained but enhanced the ambiance of the atmosphere at the Inn. We enjoyed the sparkling pool, quiet walks along the Ellis River and through quaint Jackson Village. The combination of the warm, welcoming decor, delicious and substantial breakfasts, especially the bacon, and friendliness of the staff makes this the perfect destination for a wonderfully romantic, relaxing getaway.

will always return.....:)

5 on July 01, 2011

Beautiful inn....have stayed there many times and will always go back! Lyn, Frank and Christine have mastered the art of hosting and it shows!

Memorial Day memories

5 on June 12, 2011

We have stayed at this Inn several times & we are NEVER disappointed! The welcoming atmosphere & outstanding personal service always makes us feel at home!

Great Honeymoon

5 on June 03, 2011

My new hubby and I stayed here for three nights in the Ellis River Cabin and LOVED everything about the inn. It was quaint and romantic and Frank and Lyn (owners) were perfect, gracious hosts! The breakfast was DELICIOUS every day and the grounds were beautiful. We will definitely going back!!!

Another Fantastic Stay!

5 on June 01, 2011

We are repeat fans of the Inn at Ellis River. We keep coming back, because the rooms are romantic, the bedding is comfortable and the fireplace rooms all make it fabulous! Lyn and Frank and Christine are wonderful hosts and make you feel that you are a most welcome guest and take care of all your needs. That would include the superb breakfasts (yummy bacon) and afternoon treats! There also accomadate you with dinner reservations at local restuarants. We make bi-annual trips (fall and spring) and always after we leave are looking forward to our next visit. That pretty much says it all! A must visit for those who have never been.

Looking for Relaxation?

5 on May 30, 2011

Every year my boyfriend and I visit the White Mountains on one of our vacations. This year, instead of staying at a conventional hotel we decided to stay at a Bed and Breakfast. We had searched and viewed several in the White Mountain area but something kept bringing us back to the website for the Inn at Ellis River, so we booked out stay for 4 nights. WOW! We could not have been more pleased with out decision. Right from the beginning of check in, Lyn and Frank make you feel like you are part of their family and make you feel like you are at home. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the grounds are beautiful, and above all the breakfast is out of this world! Our room overlooked the river and we listened to the sounds of the river from our bed, jacuzzi or deck making this a relaxing and romantic week for us. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we have already planned our next trip to the Inn.

The Entire Inn

4.6 on May 23, 2011

We stayed at this inn for three nights and were very happy with rooms, service, breakfast and cleanliness. Lyn and Frank were perfect hosts. The inn was beautiful and every room was decorated perfectly. We will certainly go back next year on our annual spring New England vacation.

Wonderful as usual!

5 on May 23, 2011

We have stayed there numerous times over the years. Each time is NEVER a disappointment. From each reservation making, to check in, the fresh baked goodies in the afternoon and fantastic breakfasts in the morning.. EVERYTHING is wonderful!!! Unfortunately, we were only able to stay 1 night this trip Im looking forward to our next 2 night trip up there. Everyone there makes sure that you feel like you are the only guest there! We will definitely be back :)

Another wonderful stay!

5 on April 27, 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Ellis River for a get away weekend after he was deployed. This was our third visit to the Inn and each time we go we enjoy ourselves more and more. The Inn is the perfect size. It is small enough to get to know the owners, but large enough that you don't feel like you are in someone's home. The fbreakfast is spectacular ( the bacon alone gives us a reason to visit), the afternoon snacks yummy! It is such a wonderful place, I would highly recommend it to anyone.

A wonderful way to celebrate 10th anniversary.

5 on April 18, 2011

My husband and I spent our tenth wedding anniversary at the inn. We stayed in the Thoreau Falls room and really enjoyed the fireplace and the jacuzzi. Frank and Lynn were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast every morning as well as the yummy treats that awaited us upon our return from our daytime adventures. We would return in a heartbeat.

The Perfect Medicine

5 on April 10, 2011

This was our 2nd stay at the Inn & we'd been planning it for a while. The night before we were supposed to head up I hurt my back and was in a lot of pain. Not wanting to spoil our weekend I decided to brave the 2 1/2 hour drive and kept our plans. We had reserved a 2nd floor room for our weekend, thought I'd figure out the stairs situation when we got there, but Lyn and Frank upgraded us to a 1st floor room with a jacuzzi tub to help my back and a fireplace to relax in front of. It's that kind of attention to detail that keeps us going back to the Inn at Ellis River. From the moment we walk in we feel at home, being greeted by the staff as if we're old friends rather than guests. The room was amazing, we had the most comfortable bed you could imagine. The jacuzzi tub did wonders for my back and the fireplace made it a romantic weekend. Lyn's spectacular breakfasts were out of this world. We've already planned our next trip in August and can't wait to try yet another room at the Inn. Lyn, Frank, Christine, we'll see you soon and thanks again for everything! :o)

Place we love to go back to

4.0 on April 04, 2011

My husband and I have been coming to this Inn on an almost annual basis. We come in the off season, and it is super cozy and relaxing. The atmosphere is quaint and romantic, and it is a great way to spend quality time together. There is great shopping, restaurants, and hiking in the area. We love the homeade breakfasts and look forward to getting away to the Inn at Ellis River whenever we can.

Great weekend getaway

5 on April 04, 2011

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the Inn at Ellis River. This was our second time there and we love the inn. The inn is so cozy it has a warm and inviting atmosphere. The food and staff are just amazing. It's a great place to visit and will be going back again.

Astute Scholars of Hospitality

5 on March 26, 2011

The team at the Ellis River House are astute scholars of hospitality. The Inn provides a tranquil romantic atmosphere perfectly situated in the White Mountains. The way the Inn Keepers attend to our needs is just the prescription we needed to recharge our battery after this long winter. The only complaint is that our trip was not long enough. This is our 7th visit to the Inn and we feel as if the Inn has become an extension of our family. We have been too many places over the years but the Inn at Ellis River is by far the greatest.

Relaxing Pre-spring Get-away

4.6 on March 20, 2011

My husband and I just arrived home from our sixth visit to the lovely and romantic Inn at Ellis River in Jackson, New Hampshire. We're ready to go back! As always, the innkeepers were gracious and welcoming. An unexpected but pleasant surprise was being treated to a tray of assorted crackers, cheese and fruits. This may have been because we were returning guests many times over. Regardless, it made us feel special and was a delightful way to kick off our relaxing weekend. We've stayed in several of the inn's beautiful rooms. This time around, our accommodation was the Thompson Falls room. Though one of the smallest rooms that we’ve had at the inn, the room was just as lovely and comfortable (and clean) as others we’ve enjoyed. Falling asleep by firelight on the fluffy soft bed- what a treat! Each morning we woke early to walk the mile plus loop around Jackson Village. Trekking uphill to view the Jackson Falls was invigorating! This proved to be a great way to wake up our senses and work up an appetite. Our breakfasts were nothing short of wonderful! We were travelling with another couple. Between the four of us, we sampled both the egg offerings and the French toast or waffle breakfasts. Both were equally delicious. My husband enjoyed his “pre-breakfast” of homemade granola. I stole a few bites of his and decided that it would make a tasty trail mix. I thought about asking for a baggy to take some home but decided to use a little restraint. Had I asked, I have no doubt that the servers would have kindly let me take a sample. I noted that another couple asked to take a couple of delicious cider donuts for the drive home and they were promptly given a baggie in which to store their snack. The staff at the inn went above and beyond to make our stay special. After so many stays at the Inn at Ellis River, the innkeepers and staff are beginning to feel like family and the inn to feel like a home away from home. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are delighted when guests return to visit us again, and we do try to welcome them back with a little special treat ~ perhaps some chocolates, a memento of a special event, or in your case, we remembered that you had requested a fruit and cheese plate during an earlier visit, so we decided you might enjoy the fruit and cheese as our way of welcoming you back for your recent stay. We'll have some trail mix waiting to welcome you on your next visit!

February Get-Away

4.8 on February 21, 2011

My wife and I hadn't had a weekend to ourselves for over a year. The Inn provided us with the relaxing time we desperately needed to recharge our batteries in the middle of a long, cold winter. We loved everything about the Inn and Frank and Lynne were the perfect hosts! This has become our special get-away and we look forward to another visit in the fall!

Wonderful vacation at the Inn

5 on February 21, 2011

Could not ask for a better B&B! Outstanding in all areas including location! Jackson,NH is a winter wonderland. Lyn, Frank and staff make the Inn a friendly place to stay.We are home now... missing the bedroom fireplace and featherbed!! Looking forward to a return visit next year!

Great stay-Exceptional service

5 on February 13, 2011

From the hearty daily breakfast to the afternoon cookies and everything in between, my stay at the Inn at Ellis River ranks as one of the best ever. Beautiful accommodations; beyond outstanding staff. Looking forward to a return visit.

Exceeded Expectations!!

4.8 on February 13, 2011

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Inn at Ellis River for an entire week. During that time we enjoyed consistantly exceptional service. From the moment we woke up each day and were served a hearty country breakfast to returning from a day of skiing and enjoying warm, homemade cookies with hot apple cider and every detail in between we were certainly spoiled. The staff went out of their way to accomadate our every need. The room was even nicer than could be shown on the website. We've both stayed in Jackson many times over the years and feel that there is no better value to be had. We had a wonderful week and cannot wait to go back.

A delightful bed and Breakfast

5 on February 08, 2011

It was a delight to stay at the Inn at Ellis River! A cozy room with a wonderfully comfortable mattress, an exceptionally nice breakfast and a sincere friendly staff all added up to an outstanding Bed and Breakfast experience. We will definitely be back!

excellent stay

4.2 on February 06, 2011

We just got back from a great weekend. This Inn is very comfortable, cozy and the staff is very friendly. Can't wait until our next getaway!!!

Great Winter Get-a-way

4.0 on February 06, 2011

What a wonderful treat to stay at this Inn. The service by the staff and the innkeepers were superb. Great (and huge) breakfasts, make sure you try the bacon. Wonderfully helpful finding restaurants and arranging lift and ski passes. Hot tub was a lovely plus. You will be very happy staying here. We stayed in "Jackson Falls" but next time I would spring for "Thoreau".

2nd trip to Inn at

4.0 on February 01, 2011

We had chosen this B&B 3 years ago and had such a wonderful experience that my husband chose it for our short honeymoon get away. We chose the same room but always look at the other rooms thinking which one would we consider the next time because they all look charming. Everything was just as nice, clean and comfortable as it was the last time. The Innkeepers were just as nice. Breakfast we thought was even better this time. We also took advantage of the hot tub and a massage at the local Moondance spa. It was all very relaxing. There are many B&Bs in this area and maybe we'll consider trying another just because there are many that look nice but Inn at River Ellis really has everything we need and want.

The Perfect Getaway

5 on January 31, 2011

I can't think of a greater place to stay in Jackson. The fresh baked cookies, the wonderful breakfast, the tastefully decorated rooms and the thoughtfulness of the innkeepers and staff, make this inn a place you'll want to visit again. Take it from me; we just returned from our 7th visit, and looking forward to the next one in the Fall!

A Time Away

4.4 on January 19, 2011

My wife and I spent a great weekend at Ellis River. It was a time for us to reconnect and leave eveything else behind. My wife took care of all the details in planning this and I must say "She did great!" The Inn is warm and comfortable as well as the staff. They were helpful, and courteous and I believe just real nice people (Thank You). The breakfasts were out of this world and with such attention to detail and the presentation. The room we stayed in was excellent, they even had a romantic music cd in the player. We enjoyed our stay and we will be back, perhaps in the warm weather to really see the beauty of the area. Thank you all.

Fantastic Anniversary getaway!!

4.2 on January 19, 2011

My husband and I returned to the Inn after several years. It was better than it was before! The room was newly renovated and just lovely. It happened to be the same room we stayed in before. I was able to read my comments in the book provided in the room. The cheese and fruit platter we ordered was enough for a meal in itself. The cookies in the afternoon were scrumptious!! It was so relaxing. Lyn and Frank are wonderful innkeepers, so warm and friendly. The staff was so helpful in anything we needed. Christine welcomed us to the Inn. She made you feel very much at home.

Winter Get Away

4.8 on January 18, 2011

Inn at Ellis River is a great place to get away with that special someone. The owners and all of the staff are genuinely friendly, helpful, warm and inviting. The food was beyond anything we could have expected not to mention the service! Great atmosphere! Close to plenty to anything we could imagine wanting to check out.

Fall leaves visit

4.4 on November 28, 2010

We loved our stay at the Inn. Our room overlooked the river and we could listen to the runnning water all night. Slept great, great food and the leaves in late October were terrific! I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone wanting a great & relaxing get away. Only wish it was easier to get to from CA!

Stay At One of The Best

5 on November 23, 2010

The Inn at Ellis River has come closer than any place I have known to being associated in my mind and senses with home. The building itself, set back 100 yards from the road is long and low, possessing a comfortable scale of a private house for someone with a large family. The Ellis River runs down from the mountains another fifty yards behind the building adding sight and sound that I found comforting. The interior compounds the impression of a private residence, and one that might have been on the cutting edge of Edwardian style at the turn of the twentieth century. There is a billiard room with green complicated wallpaper and a dark wood bar. I could almost see stout, elderly gentlemen sitting reading the London Times while puffing on Havana leaf with a snifter of whiskey by their side. The most important part of the Inn At Ellis River, however, was not the building or the decor, or even the beds, but the inn keepers and staff who consciously and unconsciously went out of their way to make us feel welcome and part of the Ellis River family. We got a hug from Lyn Norris and a warm handshake from her husband, Frank. We swapped laughs and a joke or two with the friendly woman making up a bed in one of the rooms. The morning we were due to depart, we enjoyed an excellent breakfast(eggs benedict en croute were superb and the Harrington bacon that came with it was almost in a totally different food group from the standard offerings at the supermarket) and were served by a young woman who joked and smiled as if we were family. Do put this inn on your MUST VISIT list. It will be well worth the time and effort.

This inn was perfect, very friendly staff, beautiful room with jacuzzi....peace and quiet ...We can't wait to go back!

Comfortable, Relaxing, Enjoyable at Inn at Ellis River

4.6 on November 09, 2010

Staying at the Inn at Ellis River for the first time, my wife and I had an excellent stay. The service was terrific, and friendly as well with suggestions offered for area sights, and activities. We enjoyed the breakfasts, spending some time in the common area, as well as the comfortable pub at the Inn. It was great to come back to after spending our days exploring the many attractions in the White Mountain area. Lyn, Frank, and Christine do an exceptional job with the Inn, and their guests, and keep it extremely clean as well.

The best place on earth

5 on November 08, 2010

My husband and I will be heading back in December for our 15th wedding anniversary this will be our 3rd visit in 5 years...We love it here, everything is perfect at the inn...I am getting so excited about our visit in a couple of weeks... You must visit here...

The Best Bed and Breakfast Inn Ever!!!

5 on November 07, 2010

My husband and I have been going to the Inn at Ellis River for almost 15 years now and we wouldn't think of going anywhere else. There have been some changes over the years, but every change has made the place better and better. The decor is so beautiful. Everything is spotless. The breakfast is unbelievable. They have everything you could possible want to make your stay enjoyable. And most importantly everyone there is so nice and helpful. We are so happy to have this place as our little get away to relax and enjoy.

Lovely Inn

3.6 on November 01, 2010

This is a very nice Inn in a convenient location to the White Mountains. Jackson is a very nice little town within walking distance. The staff is very friendly and the accomidations are comfortable and clean, albeit a bit heavy on the floral patterns. We had an electric fireplace in our room and a private balcony, both nice features. We stayed two nights and had breakfast each day. The breakfast could have been a bit better. It seems that the food was prepared in bulk (about 20 rooms at the Inn), and I would have liked a bit more variety.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your room’s fireplace, balcony, and our friendly staff. Our traditional decor draws its inspiration from our classic New England village location. Each of our rooms is decorated uniquely, and some rooms have more dominant floral motifs than others. On a future visit you might wish to consider our Sparkling Cascade, Franconia Falls, or Arethusa Falls rooms which are decorated in richer tones. We provide photos of each of our rooms on our website to assist you in selecting the decor you prefer. We are sorry that our breakfast did not provide the amount of variety you desired. Our first course includes a selection of fruits, juice, two sweet breads or coffeecakes, homemade granola, cereals, and yogurt. The sweet and savory entrees, served with bacon or sausage and toast from a local artisan bakery, both change daily. A number of our breakfast entrees, such as the Eggs Benedict Strudel, garden vegetable frittata with smoked mozzarella, and baked orange croissant or rum raisin french toasts are recipes prepared in multiple servings. However, if you do not wish one of those entrees, we always are happy to prepare an alternative such as scrambled or fried eggs. We hope that in considering a future visit you will give us a call so that we may assist you with your room selection and any special breakfast requests.

A New England Must-see

5 on October 27, 2010

My husband and I have visited this lovely Inn 4 times over the past decade. The current owners (or the dynamic duo as we like to refer to them) have cultivated the quintessential New England Inn experience. This is a must-stay/see for any couple looking for relaxation, rejuvenation and plenty of delicious morsels to fill the belly and the soul with a slice of Yankee heaven.

Our second stay at Inn at Ellis river

5 on October 27, 2010

Frank and Lyn are the best of hosts when it comes to caring for you at the inn. they really make you feel like family, and that you are most welcome staying in their home. the accomodations are top notch as is the wonderful breakfasts that are carefully prepared each morning. They are both very thoughtful friends who want our vacation in the white mountain area to be the best it can be.

A Perfect Gem

5 on October 22, 2010

This was our 4th stay at the Inn. Lyn, Frank, Christine and the entire staff are absolutely wonderful. They make you feel at home and just like family. The breakfast and afternoon treats are scrumptious and plentiful. The rooms are so beautiful, clean and comfortable. Every detail and comfort has been provided to you. The Inn is situated so conveniently to do so many things. Everyone at the Inn is extremely helpful in suggesting places for you to see or they will make arrangements and reservations for you. I can't say enough about the Inn. We are already thinking about when we will come back again. The Inn is definitely are go to place!

Ellis Take US Away!

5 on October 09, 2010

When you want to get away from it all come to Ellis River. Frank and Lyn are extremely helpful. They helped create the perfect 3 night get away! My husband and I relaxed on our balcony listening to the river. The rooms are beautiful and they have special little touches that make the inn unique. We would awaken to the unbelievable smells of breakfast! Lyn helped set up adventures for us hiking, horse back riding, Kayaking. Then massages were needed! We would come back in the afternoon just so we could enjoy the homemade cookies! We needed a get away and it was absolutely wonderful! Thank You!

The Best So Far

5 on October 08, 2010

We had just stayed at 2 other very nice B&Bs in Maine and our stay here was the last part of our vacation. It was just the best! Not only were the owners just so professional and helpful but so was the Inn's manager. Our room was so beautiful and so very clean. We are looking to revisit them again. We highly recommend staying is also a great vacation spot! Not only was the breakfast delicious but the service and attention was impeciable. Thank you all for making our stay the best ever. Sherry and Ralph

Fall Color Trip

5 on October 02, 2010

My wife and I stayed at the Inn at Ellis River for 4 wonderful days in September 2010. The owners are such nice people and the staff is outatanding especially Christine who overdid herself in the cookie department. The breakfasts were a great way to start the day. IT WAS A MOST ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE!!

Best kept secret inn

4.8 on September 21, 2010

We had a wonderful and delightful experience! We were made to feel very welcome and were given a warm introduction to the inn. The breakfasts were awesome! As well as filling. I liked the fact that you may choose a time for breakfast. And the snacks were great. The accommodations were homey yet professional. We've stayed at many B&B's, this one is at the top! WV

wonderous getaway

5 on August 14, 2010

Inn at Ellis River was a hugh sigh of stress relief as soon as we walked through the door. Our greeting and feeling very welcome was immediate. Our comfort level as we looked around became fully secure. All of the staff were attentive and personable and so easy to talk with. Our room was everything we wanted in a romantic, cozy, beautiful, and very comfortable room. The staff could not do enough for us to make us as comfortable as we could be as to even supplying a little table top stand for my fiance's computer. No tiny detail was ever gone unnoticed every day of our stay. The entire inn and grounds is absolutely immaculate. No worries about anything there. Our room was always ready when we got back from our travels and sight seeing and always the best cookies in the world with your choice of coffees and teas. Finally, the breakfast made for us every morning was the best breafasts we have had anywhere, even in restaurants. The choices are intersting, appealing, and just gourmet scrumptious. the worst part was leaving!! Can't wait to go back to our beautiful stress free getaway Inn at Ellis River. Lynne - RI

Peaceful, Charming Inn

4.6 on July 26, 2010

Innkeepers and staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful in many ways. Our room was charming and the bed was quite comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and more than plentiful. In an area with many charming and welcoming places to stay, the Inn at Ellis River stands out. If you really want to relax, sit by the river and read a good book.

Best Innkeepers

4.8 on July 25, 2010

The Innkeepers at The Inn at Ellis RIver want you to be happy and comfortable. My husband has sensitivities to scents and perfumes and the Innkeepers did their best to remove all scents from our room. When that was still not enough, they rewashed towels and bedding so we would have a comfortable stay. They really cared about us. The food was fantastic. The Inn is very relaxing. Sitting in the hot tub watching the river was the best.

Favorite B&B

4.8 on July 17, 2010

The Inn at Ellis River is our favorite bed and breakfast that we've visited. It was clean, beautiful, and serene. The best points were the fantastic breakfast (much more filling than others we've visited, and really yummy), the amenities around the inn (hot tub, pool, game room), and most of all the service. Each staff member was extremely polite and caring, and went above and beyond the norm. Many other places profess to act this way, but these people truly did it. We are eager to return.

Truly a Find

5 on July 05, 2010

This was our first visit to the White Mountains. We did a lot of research and selected the Inn at Ellis River. We were not disappointed by our selection. The B&B is in a great location. Frank, Lyn and Christine are great hosts. They are very welcoming, helpful, accommodating and friendly. Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Can't forget to mention the breakfasts - they were amazing. We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning to the Inn at Ellis River some day. Cindy & Don

Delightful B&B

5 on July 03, 2010

Relaxing and pampered stay with attentive staff and innkeepers!

We Will be Back!

4.2 on June 02, 2010

We stayed at the Inn at Ellis River for the 2010 Memorial Day Holiday weekend. We were very impressed by the hosts/staff and their attention to detail. They really took great care of us. If you stay here, don't skip the breakfast! Breakfast is out of this world . . . BACON. You have to try the bacon! This is a great location for just about everything NH has to offer. It is walking distance to a number of fine restaurants, art galleries, shops, etc. Our room was on the second floor of the inn with a balcony overlooking the Ellis River; that was a nice treat. We spent a lot of time on the balcony just relaxing. Having a room located in the main house afforded us the luxury of smelling breakfast being made each morning. Did I mention the bacon? Some inns and B&Bs can be stuffy, but not the Inn at Ellis River. It offers a casual, relaxing environment. It has an outdoor heated pool, pub room/bar that has board games, a pool table, darts, a collection of DVDs, chess, checkers; there's a sunroom with a hot tub; beautiful gardens, a lovely gazebo, where you could sit and enjoy a book or just listen to the sounds of the river. Even if you stayed here during a rainy day/weekend, I think that there is enough to keep you busy. I'm glad that we stayed at the Inn at Ellis River. We will share our fabulous experience with others for sure!

A wonderful inn

5 on May 31, 2010

We have stayed multiple times at the inn. The innkeepers and staff are great and make sure you are comfortable. The inn is a great romantic destination. The breakfast included in your stay is to die for.


5 on April 22, 2010

We have stayed there 3 different times and different times of year. It is just a wondeful place to go to relax and unwind. The staff is just awesome and cant wait to come back again! We have nothing but wonderful memories!

Cozy and Romantic!

5 on March 15, 2010

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Inn at Ellis River for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. It was a beautiful place with a wonderful staff that really made our one night stay one to remember. We are looking forward to returning and staying during the summer months! I highly recommend this inn for a romantic getaway or even just a place to relax.

Girl's ski weekend

4.6 on March 07, 2010

From the moment we walked in the door, we felt welcomed and where sure that we had found the perfect place for our girl's ski weekend.

Feel right at home B & B

5 on March 02, 2010

This was a great choice. Inn was clean, the staff was friendly and the hospitality was beyond our expectations. The breakfasts were exquisite and the fact that the staff went above and beyond to meet our dietary needs was more that one could ask for. We'll definitely go back.

Great Getaway

4.0 on February 28, 2010

We enjoyed everything about this inn - from the warm welcome from all staff, to the immaculate room with king-size bed, fireplaces, jacuzzi tub, hot cider and cookies, pub room at night and scumptous breakfast in the morning. Inn at Ellis River has it all. We will definitely return in the future.

best inn in Jackson

5 on February 16, 2010

Every winter we go to Jackson for a weekend getaway. After staying at 7 other places in the Jackson area, only once apiece, we finally found the perfect place, the Inn at Ellis River! My wife and I came here for the second time and were just thrilled with everything. I really liked the room we had with a balcony overlooking the river, as well as the pub, the hot tub and the yummy breakfasts and afternoon goodies and cider. The owners and the staff are all very friendly and accommodating, and helpful with suggestions for restaurants and places to ski and snowshoe. This is also a gay-friendly establishment, which we appreciated. We feel at home here. Can't wait to come back.

Lovely inn, wonderful owners

4.0 on February 16, 2010

We stayed for 3 days over Valentine's Day weekend with 2 other couples. The inn is lovely and immaculate. The owners, Frank and Lyn were wonderful and very attentive and accommodating. They have a top notch staff including Christine who works very hard to make sure all guests are comfortable and happy. The home cooked breakfast each morning is wonderful. Lyn does the cooking and is superb in the kitchen. We stayed in the "Diana's Baths" room and it was immaculate and well appointed. The beds are very comfortable and we slept very well. Although the inn has 21 guest rooms, it did not feel crowded and we had the inn to ourselves during the day as most guests go out after breakfast. We chose to stay at the inn most of the day to enjoy the quiet comfort by the fireplace in the Pub room. We look forward to returning to the Inn at Ellis River next winter.

Snow Sculptors Delight!

5 on February 07, 2010

I have stayed at the Ellis Inn three time and have never had a complaint of any kind. clean , friendly andgreat breakfasts!

Like coming home

5 on January 13, 2010

We have stayed here eight times over the past two years, and keep coming back because of the people. This place is well-run, by folks who care about what they do. Not a false note anywhere; they just get it right again and again.

A Beautiful Weekend at a Beautiful Place

4.4 on January 01, 2010

We visited the Inn at Ellis River for our 22nd wedding anniversary weekend. The Jackson/No. Conway NH area is our favorite vacation spot and this stay made that even more so. The Inn is so quaint and comfortable. The decor is homey and charming, from the sitting rooms to the bar, even the entrance way. Our room was very beautiful, albeit a tad small. But the bed, decor and the jacuzzi tub were top notch. The owners and staff are wonderful. They made every attempt to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable. The breakfast was delicious and the service was impeccable. All-in-all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Inn at Ellis River.

An Excellent Choice!

4.8 on December 07, 2009

This was our first visit to this part of the country and is is beautiful. Our Inn was cozy, warm, restful and just perfect. The hot cider, warm cookies and blazing fire was perfect after a long day out. Our bed was so comfortable we slept like babies. The breakfast is delicious and the service is first class. A great value for your money. We surely hope to return!

Outstanding Bed & Breakfast Inn

5 on November 22, 2009

This was our 3rd stay at The Inn at Ellis River. The service was outstanding as always. The owners and staff are very accommodating and eager to please. The room was very clean and was always promptly cleaned the next day. The rooms were very cozy and added to our romantic weekend. The Inn has plenty for guests to do from watching movies in your room, relaxing in the hot tub, to playing pool, shooting darts, playing a game of checkers or chess in their very nice game/bar room. The icing on the cake is the personalized breakfast that is served each morning with a friendly smiling face. The bacon is out of this world. We had an unfortunate event in which our car broke down in which the car had to be toed home. Under the circumstances the innkeepers were extremely accommodating and even offered us to stay a couple of extra days if we chose. You will be very pleased with the outstanding Inn.

Wonderful and relaxing time

4.4 on November 02, 2009

We can highly recommend this inn, for so many things you can do in and around this house (TV is absolutely not necessary during a stay at Ellis river). The innkeeper and the staff was so warm, helpful but discreet. We had 4 awesome days at Ellis river!

October 2009 Anniversary Stay

5 on November 02, 2009

Our children surprised us with a 50th Anniversary Stay at Inn at Ellis River in New Hampshire. The Lord must have guided their search and choice. Our entire stay was perfect. We had a most restful time of renewal. The innkeepers were especially helpful in recommending local scenic routes beyond the usual. We hope to go again someday.

Charming, pretty little inn

4.2 on October 27, 2009

This was quite a charming inn, with great amenities... atrium hot tub, pub with darts/pool table and games on site, and delicious breakfasts. However, the only things that kept me from giving it top rating were such small things! It's a shame, with just a few touches it could be top rate. The afternoon "goodies" served I didn't deem even to be worth the calories, sorry to say. The lemon bars were the only one that tasted fresh or homemade. Now the warm spiced cider WAS delicious. As for the room, it was delightful, but our "mountain view" also included a parking lot view, and car alarms were going off early a.m., not very romantic, but what can ya do ? However, we chose this room, since as there were two of us, it included two chairs to sit by the fire.. unfortunately the rocking chair I had looked forward to has seen better days and was not comfy. I also had the opportunity to check out another room, and of the two chairs in it, one was practically falling apart and obviously not for sitting on, so there was no place to sit other than the beds, basically. Luckily, the inn was not full when I booked, so I asked for (and received, with no hassle) a discounted rate, and truthfully, that is about as high as I would have wanted to go for the room. Chris was delightful in every way!! Great service, smiling and helpful all the way!! There were numerous helpful boooks/mags about things to do, where to eat, etc. and the 24/7 coffee/tea was great, as well as fridge to store any snacks, ice, etc. Overall it was enjoyable and cozy but just a bit more attention to detail would have enhanced the experience so much more. there were candles in the pub, etc. but none were ever lit that I saw, no fresh flowers or any special touches, but again, I would recommend it.

Wonderful B&B

5 on September 28, 2009

First Class accomodations all around. Superior cleanliness and service with outstanding breakfast each morning. Lyn and Frank are excellent inn keepers and a pleasure to meet. Hot tub was great bonus after Mt Washington hike. Look forward to returning.

Casual Elegance

5 on September 26, 2009

This beautiful inn offers a quiet retreat from a busy world. The innkeepers are polite and attentive to every need. Take advantage of the dinner packages they make available at the local restaurants - the food is outstanding and the value of the packages is excellent.

Great vacation spot!

5 on August 31, 2009

Greetigs fro innkeepers Lynn & Frank and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The attention to detail from our delicious breakfasts (great bacon) to our cozy room & bed were exceptional. We had a relaxing week with breathtaking views of the white mountains. Loved our stay.

Peaceful haven

5 on August 21, 2009

We have stayed at Inn at Ellis River three times for a reason. It is peaceful, relaxing and very accommodating. The breakfast is wonderful and the rooms top notch.

Our Second Visit

5 on August 17, 2009

This was our second visit and it was everything and more that we remembered. Lyn, Frank and Christine made our 1st Anniversary a very memorable time. They treat you better than Family! The Gourmet Breakfast send you out on your day full and very satisfied. The afternoon goodies recharge you for the rest of your Day. The rooms are immaculate. If you think you are not a Bed n Breakfast person Come here and you will look at the hotel/motel stay and wonder what took me so long to discover this Gem!!

Short stay, but exceptional

5 on August 10, 2009

The Inn at Ellis River is a real gem - unfortunately, we spent only one night there. The next trip to the White Mountains will definitely be longer with more time at this exceptional place!

Best Inn forever!!!

4.8 on August 07, 2009

It was a very nice experience. The owners, Lyn and Frank, are two wonderful people we will always adore! The staff were wonderful, and made us comfortable in every possible way!

We Needed a Break

5 on August 03, 2009

With a lot of responsibilities on our plate, my wife and I needed a break and found the Inn at Ellis River searching NH on the computer. Good reviews and we took a chance. What a great 4 days! Clean rooms with great views and a staff that treats you like family. We'll be back. Thanks.

Best vacation spot ever!

5 on July 24, 2009

The Inn at Ellis River is the most charming Inn we have ever stayed at. We just returned from our third stay and are already planning our next stay. The Innkeepers see to every guests needs and treat them like family. The decor is immpecable and the rooms are very clean and so comfortable. The food and afternoon snacks are delicious. We wish Lyn could cook for us all the time. We highly recommend the Inn for your next stay in NH. You will not be disappointed.

You NEED to stay here!

5 on July 05, 2009

Lyn, Frank, Christine and the entire staff have a unique way of making you feel extrememly special at the Inn at Ellis River. The rooms are emaculate and the cozy atmosphere throughout the inn is enough to make you never want to leave. Breakfast is the absolute best and the afternoon cookies are better than the ones Mom made! (Sorry, Mom) We have been to this inn numerous times and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else in Jackson. They exceed in every aspect of inn-keeping and if you are travelling north, you really need to stay here and check it out. You will not be disappointed.

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

5 on July 01, 2009

This was our second time back to the Inn and we celebrated our 1st anniversary! The Innkeepers treat you like family and when you return it's like you never left. There is much to see and do minutes away! The breakfast bacon is the best!

Fell in love again at the Inn

4.6 on May 13, 2009

My husband and I were looking for a place that would give us quiet, peaceful surroundings with beautiful views of the mountains but got the added relaxation of a river that flowed right outside our room (Sparkling Cascade, each room named for an area waterfall). The second weekend in May was perfect for this as the snow had melted and the river was flowing. Knowing how we love the sounds of oceans and flowing rivers this room we chose was perfect for us we left the room door open all night to hear the river. Frank and Lyn and staff were very helpful in choosing our water fall adventure we decided to do. After a full day of hiking the falls to come back to a beautiful room and the jacuzzi was heaven. The little extras in the room from the trail mix and special candy to the goat milk soaps and aroma scent for the jacuzzi ended the day on a perfect note. There is plenty to see and do all around. We have already booked our next visit for the cookie tour package in November and look forward to many more adventures and checking out each and every room in every season. We left refreshed renewed and in love all over again.

Everything I needed

The whole experience was truly a delight. The staff was the best! The food was gourmet. Loved every moment of our stay!

The staff and owners could not do enough for us. The rooms were clean, and designed so nice. Makes you feel at home. the food was excellent.

Great getaway for two! Full of comfort and cozyness. A must.

Hidden romance in the mountains

5 on April 22, 2009

The Inn At Ellis River is a hidden jem, that once you experience it, you will be waiting til you can return. The rooms are beautifully done, each in thier own special way. The entire staff is always friendly and makes you feel like family. My girlfriend and I have stayed there quite a few times over the past couple years and we can't imagine staying anywhere else when we travel to northern NH.

quaint getaway

5 on April 15, 2009

Stay at a beautiful hideaway that is just outside the craziness of Boston and close to great shopping, hiking, golfing. Between the cookies, the best bacon in the AM, you will be sure to love the place!

Winter fun at Inn at Ellis River

4.2 on April 13, 2009

The innkeepers were so friendly and helpful, as well as other staff. Not only did they make reservations at some exceptional restaurants, but also provided information on fun things to do in the area. The breakfasts were fabulous, but the hot apple cider and fresh baked cookies in the afternoons were great. We will stay at this B&B again.


5 on April 07, 2009

This was our 3rd trip back to Ellis River. When we walked into the cottage, we felt like we were home. The owners and innkeepers spoke with us like we were old friends! We love this place so much, we look forward to coming back again and again! The room, the atmosphere, the breakfast, everything!

Our wonderful winter vacation

4.6 on March 19, 2009

Lynn and Frank made sure we were comfortable and well-fed, as well as well informed about what to do in the area. Christine also gave us lots of useful info. The place is clean, beautifully appointed, comfy, but not stuff. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Elegant, comfortable relaxation

5 on March 09, 2009

Lyn and Frank have really set this up to be an exceptional stay. We didn't expect the inn to be so beautiful and to provide such leisure in the evenings. Many places say puzzles, chess, etc. But this one really has it set up nicely in 2 rooms so that several people can be engaged in recreation such as darts, billiards, etc. without being in each other's way. Breakfast was delectable. Very accommodating so that I could still enjoy their breakfast specialties with all my dietary restrictions: lactose intolerant, vegetarian, wheat sensitivities. The bed was the most comfortable we've stayed in away from home! Highly recommend a stay here.

just like home

5 on February 12, 2009

This is the 4th time we have stayed at the inn. Three times in the winter, once in the summer. The innkeepers make you feel part of their family and when you come back from your day's activity, you are always greeted with smiles and delicious treats. We never stay any place else in Jackson!

simply wonderful

5 on February 12, 2009

Loved it, loved it, loved it! Everything about it, hospitality, decor, cleanliness, delicious meals, warm cozy atmosphere. Plenty to do within minutes of the inn in all seasons!

A Wonderful Get Away

4.6 on February 07, 2009

I've stayed at many B&B's and this one is wonderful! Our room was lovely, with a two person jacuzzi, Four poster king size bed .... Our breakfasts were delicious and Lyn and Frank are helpful, accommodating innkeepers - always ready to suggest a restaurant for dinner or fun places to go. Our afternoon cookies/treats were great!

great inn!

5 on February 04, 2009

We enjoyed our mid-week stay- as a bonus lift tickets were included. The innkeepers, Lyn and Frank, are wonderful people- great breakfasts and afternoon cookies baked by Christine.


5 on February 03, 2009


Great Place for a Weekend Getaway

5 on January 22, 2009

I visited the Inn at Ellis River for a weekend Ski trip. The first thing I noticed about the Inn was the cleanliness. Breakfast was fantastic. I also enjoyed the freshly baked cookies and hot cider in the afternoon. Lynn and Frank, the innkeepers, were so very nice and accomodating. I simply cannot say enough good things about this place! If you are looking for a home away from home, then this is the place to go.

best ever

5 on January 14, 2009

Relaxing, sparkling clean, friendly, food was awesome, close to x-country, restaurants. will definitely return!

excellent place to stay

5 on January 14, 2009

I'm sure we'll be back there again. We enjoy it very much. Cozy, quiet, and romantic place.

I will always come back!

Everyone at Ellis River treated us very well! Everything at Ellis River is outstanding!

The Inn at Ellis River is the perfect mix of country coziness and luxury. It is just a wonderful place that hasn't forgotten that the little things matter!! A real getaway!

Alot of extra touches

4.6 on January 04, 2009

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Ellis River in Jackson, Vt. Frank and Lynn added many extras such as unlimited tea and coffee, hot cider and cookies and granola bars, informal "happy hour" with hors d'oeuvres, a game and a puzzle room as well as a welcomed hot tub. etc which made it all the more enjoyable. The room with fireplace was cozy and the breakfast was outstanding. We would return for more!

Innkeeper Response
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the Inn at Ellis River in Jackson, NH and are looking forward to returning for a future visit. We should note for others reading this review that while we provide fresh baked cookies and seasonal beverages each afternoon, we offer the informal hors d'oeuvres you mentioned on a much less regular basis to celebrate special events such as New Year’s, our Inn-to-Inn Spring Herb Tour, Jackson’s Memorial Day Weekend Wildquack Festival, our Inn-to Inn Holiday Cookie Tour, etc. Thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back!

We went here for the first part of our honeymoon and stayed in one of the cottages. It was absolutely perfect. The staff was great, the food was delicious, and the rooms were clean.

From the initial inquiry about reservations to the good-bye hug. The innkeepers are the epitome of warmth and professionalism. Their staff reflects this too. The room was spacious, spotless, and cozy. The meals were spectacular. Special requests were welcomed. It seemed as if each guest was given the exact amount of attention they wanted. This is a warm and welcoming place we highly recommend.

Our Amazing Stay at the Inn at Ellis River

4.0 on November 12, 2008

My now fiance and I went to the Inn at Ellis River last Thanksgiving weekend, and stayed in the Thoreau Room from 11/23/07 to 11/25/07. Lyn and Frank (and their daughter-I cannot remember her name!) were the best hosts imaginable! The room was beautiful, cozy, warm, and very comfortable. We joked around that we were staying at Grandma and Grandpa's, because everytime we came back from an outing, they were waiting with tea, coffee, cookies, and other treats. Breakfast was amazing-Lyn is a fabulous cook! Our recommendations are her bacon and the stuffed french toast. When we left, it was very hard to say goodbye. I hope during your stay you will write about your experience in the guest journal that they provide for each room at the inn. Everything was worth it while we were there. And if we can afford it (although the prices are very right), we will be going back for our honeymoon next October, if not, we will at least spend two nights there. Thanks Lyn and Frank! :) Love, Lisa and Greg

Great Romantic Getaway

4.8 on November 01, 2008

The Inn at Ellis River exceeded our expectations. Our room was amazing (Cascading Falls - one of the newer rooms). The breakfast was delicious each morning and don't miss the homemade cookies and treats each afternoon with warm apple cider or tea. The staff was friendly and thoughtful. This was our first Bed and Breakfast experience and it will be hard to beat!

2nd visit

This was our second visit to the inn, and it was even better than I remembered! The food, the staff, the atmosphere: all wonderful!

Enchanting Country Inn

Beautiful B&B inn nestled in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Offers exquisite and friendly service providing for relaxation, romance, and rejuvenation.

Perfect New England Honeymoon

5 on October 28, 2008

We're from New England (Connecticut) and decided we wanted the quintessential Northeastern autumn experience for our honeymoon. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to stay in Jackson (after having passed some of the other locations we were considering on the way), and loved our experience at the Inn at Ellis River. In fairness, we stayed in what I believe to be the best room at the inn (the Pearl Cascade room), though Christine was nice enough to give us the grand tour of the unoccupied rooms. They all had that quaint B&B charm, but our room had the 3-sided gas fireplace, the 2-person jacuzzi overlooking the river AND the charm. It really was incredible. Lyn and Frank are tremendous hosts, and are always ready with helpful advice, be it where to hike, where to go for dinner, or what shot to take in pool. Christine and Laureen were as helpful as could be, and do yourself a favor and say hi to Ginger in the office when you go. I'm not sure how many more 5 star reviews the Inn at Ellis River needs, but add ours! We'll be sure to come back next time we're in the White Mountains.

Celebrating beirg Empty-nesters

4.6 on October 22, 2008

After getting both of our children through college and married, my wife and I celebrated by spending 5 nights at the Inn at Ellis River. Over time there was amazing, relaxing and refreshing! the rooms are very nice and clean. The inkeepers and staff are exceptional. Great views of the mountains.

Don't miss the Inn at Ellis River

The accommodations were excellent as always. Innkeepers and staff extremely friendly and available.

Excellent Inn

3.8 on October 14, 2008

This was an excellent inn. The breakfasts were fabulous! The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend Ellis River to everyone.

New Hampshire Getaway

5 on October 13, 2008

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Ellis River. The rooms were well equipped and comfortable and very clean. The staff is very attentive. If you can't climb stairs, pick a lower floor (stairs are very steep) and do not try to put wine in their refrigerator (innkeepers have a liquor license).

White Mountain Sojourn

4.8 on September 24, 2008

My extended family spent three very comfortable and peaceful days. Both my elderly parents and my hounger nieces and nephews were very pleased with our stay. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The quiet and beauty of this village is a balm for urban dwellers. This is the perfect base from which to explore the white mountains.

Home away from home

5 on September 15, 2008

The Inn at Ellis River is by far the best B & B we've ever stayed in. From the comfort of the beds, freshness of the linens and towels to all the other amenities it truly lacks nothing. AND then there is the breakfasts that rival 5 star restaurants in presentation, originality and taste- plus the afternoon fresh backed goodies!! The staff is more than welcoming and helpful. It's truly a place we consider our "home away from home" and try to stay as often as possible.

Lovely Inn

5 on September 14, 2008

We spent three nights at the Inn at Ellis River and were thoroughly pleased with the lovely accommodations and the friendly, helpful staff people. I look forward to staying there again if we return to the area!

Our New Favorite Getaway

4.6 on September 12, 2008

The Inn Keepers and Staff are especially helpful, accomodating and fun to just chat with. The grounds and facilites are beuatifully kept. Our entire stay in May of 2008 felt like a romantic, calm getaway, perfect to celebrate our aniversary. I hope to do it again and again. I would recommend this Inn to everyone. The area has something for everyone, and the company and service is so plesant you can't help but to relax and enjoy.

Special Weekend- Relaxing

5 on September 03, 2008

We just stayed this past weekend. Had a great time and of course relax and had a great time. Lyn, Frank, and Christine were so helpful in making dinner reservation, places for hiking, waterfalls. The breakfast was fabulous...the Bacon yummy! The cookies and goodies in the afternoon hit the stop after a long day. We will definately be back soon....

Weekend Getaway...

5 on August 25, 2008

My fiancee and I had a wonderful weekend romantic getaway. We needed to leave the stress at home behind and relax. We definitely found that here at the Inn at Ellis River. Our hosts Lyn, Frank, and Christine were wonderful, very friendly, and ready to help in any way necessary. We had a wonderful stay and I was able to propose to my now fiancee over by Jackson Falls!!! Our fruit and chocolate and sparkling cider was also prepared nicely for us and ready when we arrived. We had the babymoon package because we are expecting in February! Our room was spotless and very calming and relaxing, just what we needed to forget about the hustle and bustle back at home. We can't wait to go back again soon!!! Thank you for such a wonderful B&B. Brian and Michelle, Cumberland, RI

Beautifel setting, perfect getaway

I've never stayed somewhere that had such an ideal combination of the perfect setting (right on the river) with such a lovely place(our room, the dining room, everything was beautiful)

Inn at Ellis River

4.8 on August 19, 2008

The inn is a wonderful, peaceful, great place


4.8 on August 08, 2008

My husband and I have stayed at Ellis River 4 times and each time has been great. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are perfect. Also, the staff and owners are terrific. Morning brekfast is to die for.

Quiet getaway

4.6 on July 31, 2008

This was the first time my husband and I stayed at an inn. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The room was beautiful from the two person jacuzzi (little rubber ducky included) to the fireplace and the four poster king size bed with the luxurious bedding. Our gourmet breakfast included fresh fruit, homemade baked goods and a choice of two hot entries also homemade, (my hats of to the cheif.) We enjoyed the pool and pub on the premises and the beautiful surroundings of the White Mts and Ellis river. N Conway is close for those who like the outlets. You can make the trip as busy or a quiet as you want. (we prefer quiet) The innkeepers and staff were very frendly but didn't envade your privacy. Every inch of the Inn was immaculate with many special touches. We will be returning with recommendations to friends and family.

Definitely going back.

5 on July 30, 2008

The Innkeepers were very warm, helpful and sociable. The breakfasts were wonderful. Will definately be going back.

Wonderful Adventure

4.8 on July 29, 2008

The more I reminisce about my trip, the more I like this inn. The innkeepers did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. Great attention is given to details like high thread count linens, heavy towels, abundant information on the area, excellent breakfasts (and a good variety too), etc. If I return to that region I would definitely stay again and recommend it to all that visit the Great White Mountains.

Unforgettable Weekend

5 on July 27, 2008

We had an amazing vist to the Inn at Ellis River. It was a truly magical weekend. The owners and staff are such warm loving people, we felt as though we'd known them for years. Our room was so romantic and the view was inspiring. We can't wait to return for a visit in the winter.

Simply Perfect

5 on July 27, 2008

Superlatives often should be ignored, but in this case the title "simply perfect" was earned. We had the pleasure of staying here from 3/31-4/02. We stayed in the Pearl Cascade room, which is in a separate building from the main house. It's an upstairs suite (so go easy on the luggage) with a view of the river from a balcony (and from the roomy jacuzzi tub!). Despite the cold weather, we found ourselves opening our door regularly just to hear the sound of the river. The accommodations were roomy, and (for guys) not too frilly. Very comfortable bed, great jacuzzi tub and fireplace warmed up the room. Our hosts were friendly, but not at all pushy or overbearing. Breakfast was excellent. Our hosts also gave us solid recommendations for dinners. Cannot recommend this Inn too highly. When we return to NH we won't consider staying anywhere else.

Great Location and Friendly Innkeepers

3.8 on July 22, 2008

The rooms in this inn are carefully decorated with period pieces, though I felt in some cases they could use a bit of updating. The bathroom was a bit of a disappointment--very small and just the standard fiberglass tub. The Inn has a very nice hot tub and pub area and swimming pool, but unfortunately we were not able to take advantage of them. In general, a very nice stay.

Innkeeper Response
Our rooms are decorated in a very traditional style, which we realize may not be to everyone’s taste. We are sorry that your bathroom was a bit of a disappointment. Nine of our rooms have jetted tubs for two, while ten have standard tubs. We try to post photos and room descriptions that are clear on our web site and group our accommodations with jetted tubs for two separately. We regret there may have been some misunderstanding about the room you selected.

The Weekend we were looking for

4.6 on July 20, 2008

We needed a quiet romantic getaway weekend without having to mortgage our house....well we found it at The Inn at Ellis River. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful , but not pressuring or overpowering. They seemed to know when you needed something without asking. The atmosphere was appealing and very relaxing. The rooms were cozy and romantic. The attention to detail throughout the whole Inn was phenominal....a lot of thought and care went into the decorations. And oh yes....the breakfasts were great. There were only 2 choices for hot breakfasts, but they were have to have the bacon, it's to die for. We are not usually attracted to the B&Bs but we will go back again...Thanks for a great weekend, Frank, Lynn & Christine. See you soon. Angelo & Linda


5 on July 15, 2008

Breakfast is exquisite. rooms are elegant. service is exceptional and outstanding. the innkeepers are very welcoming and the inn is always a pleasure to return to. its very clean and we always are eager for our next visit and to keep trying different rooms. the inn has so much to offer and very hospitable. scott and carol julien, danvers mass

"A Magical Visit"

5 on July 14, 2008

What a wonderful time we had at Frank & Lyn's beautiful Inn. The location is gorgeous, tucked away from the main road at River's Edge. The rooms graciously appointed (fresh & spotless) and so was the service warm gracious & excellent.

Great Getaway

5 on July 09, 2008

My husband and I just got back from a wonderful weekend. Lyn, Frank and Christine were always helpful in getting dinner reservation, suggesting hikes, or friendly conversation. Ginger is so sweet, and her bark is so quiet compared to my shepard. We will be back soon, maybe in the Fall. This Inn is one of the best we have stayed in, in a long time....Thanks for the great hospitality.

Great Place

4.6 on July 08, 2008

We found the Inn via the internet, and spent a long weekend there recently. The hosts were gracious, rooms were clean and comfy, and breakfasts were delicious.

Fantastic inn

4.8 on July 08, 2008

Stayed there last December and have already been it! Lyn and Frank are outstanding hosts and Lyn's bacon alone is worth the trip. Can't wait to get back.

Excellent Hideaway in the relaxing heart of the white mountains

4.8 on June 22, 2008

Plenty of onsite entertainment, excellent food and service, with a very nice jacuzzi/pool setup, as well. Great location in the moutains, with a picturesque drive in/out. We stayed in the cottage next to the inn, providing plenty of privacy with the comforts of home, but with all the usual inn amenities. A few ants and a bad run of weather were the only minor setbacks to our peaceful weekend getaway.

Perfect Holiday Weekend

4.2 on June 19, 2008

Of course when the weather cooperates, that's a big help, but Frank, Lynn, & Christine needed little of that as they are excellent hosts.

4.8 on June 16, 2008

This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast. The Inn at Ellis River exceeded any and all expectations that I had! Frank, Lynn and Christine were so friendly. We stayed in Franconia Falls, which was beautiful! They have thought of everything, from the comfortable bed and fluffy towels down to the candle, romantic cd and even the rubber ducky for the tub:) Lynn is a spectacular cook and the breakfasts were amazing! Lorene showed us some of the other rooms at our request and they are all beautiful and each unique in their own way. If you are looking for rest and rejuvination, Ellis River is the place to come. Christine was so helpful over the phone when booking. At checkout, she remembered that it was our anniversary (19 years!) and gave us a special gift. We will certainly be back and will highly recommend the Inn to EVERYONE! Mr. & Mrs. P. Rhode Island

Absolutely Loved It!

4.6 on June 16, 2008

The Inn and Innkeepers were perfect... They were very friendly and accomodating, right down to the smallest detail. The room was beautiful, with a spectacular view from the deck. The breakfast was delicious. My husband & I are already planning our second trip..

Peaceful Bed & Breakfast

4.2 on June 15, 2008

Inn at Ellis River was a peaceful atmosphere to relax and unwind. The location allowed for easy access to gorgeous mountain hikes with breathtaking views. We returned from our adventures to thoughtful innkeepers ready to pamper us and meet any of our needs. Our only disappointment was we could not have stayed longer.

Well worth it!

4.6 on June 04, 2008

My husband and I decided to steal a few quiet days away from our hectic life. We are getting ready for his deployment and staying at the Inn at Ellis River was just what we needed. The innkeepers, Frank and Lyn, were attentive and friendly, as were the rest of their staff. The attention to detail was amazing and our room was beautiful. We took advantage of the romance package that was offered and it was well worth the price. We enjoyed dinner at The White Mountain Cider Company, which was excellent, and massages at MoonDance, which were perfect. Any issue that we had was immediately attended to and I would highly recommend the Inn at Ellis River to any couple seeking a quiet, romantic getaway!

A sweet Experience

Lovely place to stay for romance!

5 on May 19, 2008

This was our second visit to the Inn at Ellis River and everything was wonderful, as usual. Lyn and Frank are gracious hosts. We stayed in the Pearl Cascade Suite and it was so quiet and romantic. You can sleep with the screen door open and listen to the sound of the River all night. The fireplace and jacuzzi tub are added pleasures. The atmosphere is so friendly. The place is clean and well kept. They have a game room with darts, checkers and a pool table to mention a few. They have a beautiful outdoor pool as well as an indoor Hot tub. The food is alwasy delicious and the bacon is to die for. I would highly recommend this place and look forward to many more visits.

A Wonderful Experience

The Inn was quite lovely and the staff was friendly without being intrusive. The breakfasts were an uncommon and delicious treat. We had a very nice weekend visit. We plan to return at a later date.

A #1 B&B

5 on May 18, 2008

The staff and Inn were above and beyond anything we ever expected for our first B&B. The room and breakfast were amazing. Thank you for a relaxing weekend.

Beautiful Mountain Retreat

5 on May 15, 2008

Meticulous and well-maintained B&B. Spectacular views. Breakfast was delicious...fresh berries and herbs, every dish homemade. The rooms are spacious and so comfortable. A must visit.

Best place to stay

5 on April 14, 2008

What a beautiful Inn. The Innkeepers truly went above and beyond our expectations. It felt like we were old friends coming home for a visit. The food was exceptional, always hot and homemade. The room was unbelievably clean with great attention to detail on the decor. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone looking for a relaxing, warm and inviting place to go. It was like a little piece of heaven right there in Jackson, NH.

Cozy getaway

5 on April 06, 2008

This has to be one of our favorites. The inn is so quiet and homey it's absolutely perfect in every way. I really don't know what else to say, it's a definate romantic getaway for any couple!

Great Romantic Getaway

We were able to escape from the kids for one evening and the Inn at Ellis River was just what we nedded! The room was cosy with the fireplace - -our room was nancy cascade. The breakfast excellent and the jacquizzi was jsut what we needed to unwind. The staff was there to service our every need!

Great Getaway

5 on March 24, 2008

My wife and I stayed here over Easter weekend and the B&B is awesome. Great food, room and view. I highly recommend the Pearl Cascade room.

Charming and Delightful

4.0 on March 23, 2008

This was our first time staying at the Inn at Ellis River, and will not be our last! It is the perfect "get away". We stayed in the Paradise Falls room and it was beautiful. The jacuzzi and fireplace was a huge plus to our evening. The breakfast and afternoon goodies were delicous. The staff are kind and willing to help in anyway possible. We will be back in the summer time for another "get away".

Great Bed and Breakfast

4.0 on March 19, 2008

I stayed in the Bridal Veil Suite. The room was a bit smaller than I expected but the jacuzzi and fireplace were awesome. The only thing I did not like about the room was that the temperatue fluctuated a lot. However, the service was great and the everyone was extemely friendly and helpful. There's a lot to do in Jackson if you enjoy the outdoors. Also the breakfast at the inn was amazing and some of the best home cooking I've ever had.

Most relaxing weekends we have ever had!

5 on March 17, 2008

We have stayed at the Inn at Ellis River three times over the past year and everytime has been just as fantastic if not better than the last. The rooms are beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Frank, Lyn, Christine, and Lorraine make everyday you are there a pleasure. When you visit be sure to try the bacon in the morning and try to figure out what the special recipe will love it.

Our new favorite

4.2 on March 17, 2008

The innkeepers and were very friendly and went out of their way to make guests feel cared for. The breakfasts were good but eggs dry. We have stayed at seven other inns in Jackson, NH and this is our favorite.

A Great Weekend

4.0 on March 16, 2008

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn at Ellis River. We stayed in the Franconia Falls room, which was excellent. The fireplace that could be turned on at the flick of a switch created instant coziness. We stayed with another couple and enjoyed the well thought out common areas (billiards, movies, puzzles, games, sitting areas, internet access). They seem to have thought of everything at the Inn. We also enjoyed the breakfast, the hospitality, and the beautiful XC skiing along the river.


5 on March 13, 2008

This was the second visit to the Inn for me and my husband. I took him there last year for his birthday and, before we had even checked out, he said he wanted to return the following year for his birthday! We just returned from another romantic weekend in the mountains! We love the Ellis River Cottage because you feel like you are all alone even though you are only across the parking lot from the rest of the Inn! The jacuzzi is wonderful and relaxing after a day of shopping. The bed is SO comfortable that you never want to leave...especially with the CD playing Mendolsohn and a fire lit in the fireplace! What could be better (OR more romantic) on a rainy Saturday afternoon? Lyn, Frank and Christine are some of the warmest, friendliest, most welcoming people you could ever meet! They make you feel like you are visiting their home. I always ask for the fruit and cheese platter, as well as wine and a cake for my husband's birthday and they are always more than happy to acommodate me. Everything is waiting for us in the cottage when we arrive. These innkeepers are the best you will ever encounter! They'll even help you plan your day or recommend a great place for dinner if you need advice. We could not have chosen a better, more romantic place to stay and we will be returning to the Inn at Ellis River for many more romantic visits in the future! Marilyn and Jeff Mutter Cumberland, RI P.S. Lyn, I don't know WHAT you do to that bacon, but I could eat a pound!! The gourmet breakfast that you get each morning is unbelievable!! KUDOS to Lyn (and Frank!) Thanks

Rest and renewal

4.8 on March 07, 2008

We loved staying at the Inn at Ellis River. Everything was just right, the delicious cookies, the plentiful and tasty breakfast and the comfy bed. This was our second stay and we enjoyed the comfortable and peaceful surroundings. Hanging out in the hot tub after skiing, playing pool and working on a puzzle all lend to relaxation. We especially enjoyed our dinner at the White Mountain Cider Co. This is our favorite place for a retreat and we recomend it to all our friends.

Very pleasant weekend in the cottage

4.6 on February 27, 2008

My girlfriend and I had a great stay at the Inn at Ellis River. We booked the cottage for 3 nights, and it was totally relaxing, exactly what we wanted. We'd play a little pool or scrabble during the day in the main inn, have some tasty cookies, then at night in our cozy cottage we would toss in a DVD while we drank wine in the jacuzzi... and after that we'd go upstairs and relax by the fireplace. We also got some nice massages during one of the days, which is highly recommended if you're up for just a relaxing weekend getaway in the mountains. The food at the inn was incredible, the coffee and cookies were delicious, and the breakfasts were amazing! Also, the innkeepers and staff were very friendly and pleasant to be around, which is not always the case with certain B&Bs. We would definitely return anytime!

Fall Foliage Trip

4.8 on February 24, 2008

Every day started out perfect with a scrumptious breakfast and the staff was very hospitable to ensure we enjoyed our stay at the inn as well as saw all the sites to make it an exceptional trip!

delightful, even with kids!

4.6 on February 24, 2008

We stayed for three days while skiing at Wildcat. We have not been in a B&B since having children, though now at 11 and 13 years old, they are at least theoretically civilized. The innkeepers were very friendly and made sure that we were very comfortable. Christine even suggested kid-friendly activities around the Inn to keep them busy. Not just a great Valentine's Day destination!

Wonderful Valentine's Weekend

4.2 on February 23, 2008

I brought my girlfriend to Inn at Ellis River for a Valentine's / Birthday gift. I don't really care much for the Bed and Breakfast sort of trip, so I was planning to grin and tolerate the experience for my girlfriend's sake. But I must say that our stay at the Inn at Ellis River really exceeded my expectations. Lyn, Frank, and Christine were incredibly helpful with reservations for wherever we wanted to dine or whatever we wanted to do. Skiing, snowshoeing, snow tubing, even dog sled riding are within an easy distance. The room was very nice, I especially enjoyed the fireplace and jacuzzi in our room after a cold day out in the snow. Breakfast was a highlight of my stay there. They have two options: savory, which my girlfriend strongly prefers, and sweet, which was perfect for me. I would not hestitate at all to book another weekend there the next time we visit Jackson.

Loved the Basin Room

5 on February 21, 2008

We spent President's Day weekend at The Inn at Ellis River and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The inn was charming - beautiful setting on the river - well appointed and very comfortable. The Basin room is in the older part of the inn with a beautiful view of the river and mountains from the windows on three sides. Big comfortable king size bed. The breakfasts were outstanding - they start with delicious coffee cakes (one we loved included coconut, mango, pineapple and other exotic fruits) followed by (on various days), baked French toast, frittata, etc. Cookies in the afternoon, delicious coffee all day. A bar in the game room serving good wines and cordials. Superb. They also have a number of puzzles, games, a pool table, darts to while away a quiet hour or two (if you're not out cross country or downhill skiing). Lyn, Frank and Christine are very friendly and helpful - they are knowledgeable about nearby restaurants, activities, etc. The inn is located nearby Jackson Ski Foundation (crosscountry skiing mecca), the Thompson House Eatery (delicious) and a number of other Jackson restaurants. Highly recommended.

Loved it!

Lovely place and great location for xcountry skiing. Breakfasts were delightful. Enjoyed chatting with Lyn and Frank and petting Ginger. The decor was beautiful.


4.8 on February 14, 2008

My boyfriend and I were looking for a relaxing and quiet couple of days away and we found it at the Inn at Ellis River. We stayed in the Pearl Cascade (private entry, top floor) and had an amazing time. The jacuzzi was relaxing, the bed was gigantic with the softest sheets I've ever felt, and the food was beyond incredible. The breakfasts were enough to get us through until dinner time! And my boyfriend especially enjoyed the bacon. Only thing I'd suggest is going when there are less people (weekdays, not weekends) - when we did have downstairs neighbors, we were able to hear them talking. And breakfast was so much more quaint when we were the only people there!

2nd time back and just as great!

4.0 on February 10, 2008

This was our 2nd trip to the Inn at Ellis River. We stayed at the Inn the 1st weekend of February 07 for what I thought was my birthday weekend, but I we got engaged!! The Inn at Ellis River helped my fiance's vision become reality. Frank, Lynn and especially Christine helped my fiance with every detail and made it absolutely beautiful. They decorated the room with rose petals, chilled champagne, and filled the jacuzzi with bubbles and petals. It was absolutely beautiful. We went back the 1st weekend of February 08 to celebrate our one year engagement and it felt like we never left. It was so nice to be greeted by Frank, Lynn and Christine again. They make you feel like family. Any questions or suggestions we had for restaurants or winter activities were right on. Everything they suggest is perfect! They are truly wonderful people and amazing at everything they do! We can't wait to go back next year.

Romantic Getaway

5 on February 07, 2008

The Inn run by Frank and Lyn Baker is a beautiful, romantic, place to stay. We have stayed there twice so far and want to return. Their unique, mouth watering, aroma filled breakfasts are a treat. We stayed in Franconia Falls the last time. It exits onto the pool. (It was snowing so we didn't use it!) The hot tub is in a beautiful floor to ceiling windowed room. It looks so pretty while the snow is falling. Christine bakes the best cookies for an afternoon treat. The pool table room with bar invites conversation with Frank while he does the Suduko puzzle. A wonderful place to visit, like home, only better! The Furano's of Londonderry, NH

Comfort and Romance

5 on January 31, 2008

My husband and I have stayed at this Inn twice now. Our second, and most recent visit, was for our honeymoon. The innkeepers and staff are so kind and welcoming that you feel as though you have known them for years. When we decided to spend our honeymoon in Jackson, there was no doubt that we would be staying at this comforting and romantic Inn!

Jackson 5 stayed here!

4.0 on January 30, 2008

We came in late (around 2:00 A M ) and everything was ready faor us to settle in quickly. There were 5 of us and we had perfect accomodations and our last name is Jackson.The breakfast and facilities were outstanding and the Inn keeper, owners and staff were execellent. We only stayed 4 nighgts but we could not have picked a better place.

Lovely stay

5 on December 31, 2007

We stayed in the Bridal Veil Falls room and enjoyed the romantic comfy bed, fireplace and jacuzzi. The breakfasts and goodies made from scratch by Lyn were delicious, which really makes this Inn shine, and service by Frank and Christine was wonderful. They were very helpful with restaurant suggestions and we enjoyed dinner at the White Mountain Cider Co., frequented by locals and tourists alike. We also took advantage of the jacuzzi in the atrium, very relaxing after a day outdoors. The Christmas decorations and trees throughout added a homey touch. Frank, Lyn and Christine really made our stay memorable. We look forward to our next visit!

An Excellent Getaway with Outstanding Service

5 on December 31, 2007

Never experienced such a beautiful place with outstanding service with the prices offered. The location is perfect for multiple winter events, including skiing, ice skating, sleigh rides, etc. The area and the Inn is absolutely a dream.

A fantastic getaway spot!

5 on December 10, 2007

This was our second stay at the Inn at Ellis River, and definitely not our last! It is the perfect place to "get away from it all" and relax. We stayed in Thoreau Falls this time, and it was gorgeous (as are all their rooms!) We couldn't have asked for a better long weekend getaway - 3 nights were NOT enough! Frank, Lyn and Christine are fantastic hosts, and the breakfasts are to die for! Thanks again for a teriffic trip!


5 on December 07, 2007

We stayed in the "Pearl Cascade" room right on the river. We could see the river & our fireplace from the jacuzzi! The room itself was like something you would see in an old love story!!At night while you were in the most luxurious bed you could imagine, you could here the river running. Everyone from the Inn made you feel so special. Just like family. It was the 3 R's RELAXING REJUVINATING & ROMANTIC. It truly was a little piece of Paradise. Dawn & Rick

The Friendliest place to stay

5 on December 04, 2007

This was our second visit, and everyone is always nice. The atmosphere was like a home away from home. Breakfast was fantastic, the rooms are all great and I highly suggest this inn to all...We will be going back on our 15th Anniversary..

The Most Relaxing Weekend of My Life

4.6 on December 03, 2007

I cannot think of a better way I could have spent celebrating my 4 year anniversary with my boyfriend than a weekend at The Inn at Ellis River. This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast, and the cottage exceeded our expectations. From the jacuzzi overlooking the river to falling asleep by the light of the fire, we were lulled into the deepest relaxation. We also enjoyed the small details, such as romantic CDs provided in the room and freshly baked cookies in the afternoon. The food was delicious, and we found ourselves asking for recipes on the bacon glaze! Whenever we needed something, Lyn, Frank, Christine, and Lorreane were there with answers. We already can't wait for our next stay at the inn!

Everything we wanted and more...

4.4 on November 25, 2007

We needed a weekend getaway and found this place after reading reviews of tons of B&B's in Conway and that area. The website and pictures don't even do it justice! The room was amazing, and we barely left! Everyone there was super nice, and went out of their way to accommodate my gluten free diet, as well as anything we needed throughout our stay. What a perfect, romantic, rejuvenating place to stay when you need a break from life!

Wonderful Getaway

4.8 on November 19, 2007

We just spent the weekend at the Inn at Ellis River... and we can't wait to go back. From the warm hospitality of our hosts, Frank and Lyn (and their assistant Christine), to the luxurious room with its jacuzzi tub and heavenly bed, to the picturesque setting, and the delicious breakfast, it was all that we had hoped for and more. We highly recommend this Inn for anyone seeking a romantic getaway.

Most Wonderful

4.6 on November 09, 2007

We brought my parents for a couple of days vacation. My parents are close to 90 years old so it was hard for them to use the stairs.(My fault I did not think of this when booking) The owners switched their room to the first floor bridal suite at no extra charge. Lynn, Christine and Frank are 3 of the nicest people I ever met. They were available for our every need. We had gourmet breakfasts cooked by Lynn that were truly scrumptious. We will be back!

Fall at Ellis River

5 on November 07, 2007

I have to say that I felt very comfortable staying here. I ended up staying by myself unexpectedly at the last minute, and felt very much at ease with the staff. They were very caring and made my stay very nice. The breakfasts were awesome as well as the cookies in the afternoon. The rooms were very set up for romance and were very comfortable, especially the beds. The staff was outstanding and worked very, very hard at being there for all their guests this busy time of year. Thanks so much...

Great Getaway

Great Place to Stay

5 on October 07, 2007

My husband and I stayed at this inn at the end of September 2007 for our second honeymoon. Our stay was fantastic. We had a wonderful time and will definately go back. Lyn and Frank were wonderful and the breakfast was wonderful every morning. This is a very romatic place and great for a honeymoon or just a romantic get away. I wish we lived closer so we could visit more often.

Inn at Ellis River.

This bed and breakfast exceeded my expectations.


5 on September 19, 2007

This was our 5th or 6th time at the inn and it keeps getting better! Frank, Lyn, Christine and the whole staff go "above and beyond" the call of duty. The room was perfect, the breakfasts were delicious, and the over-all stay was absolutely splendid. If I could, I would keep a permanent year-round room! Can't wait to go back in November!

Great Stay!

4.0 on September 18, 2007

We loved this romantic inn. Very helpful staff. Delicious breakfasts. Everything was homemade. Loving touches throughout the inn. Granola bars, lemonade, homemade cookies. Clean, romantic, beautiful grounds, many extras.

"Just like Paradise"

5 on September 15, 2007

Prior to arriving, I had frequented the Inn's web site in anticipation of a long over due vacation.This was the perfect place to unwind and be pampered! The cottage overlooking the Ellis River was delightful! It was warm, cozy, private and romantic.We enjoyed the private patio and watched the stars every night while listening to the sounds of the river!Lyn and Frank were warm and friendly, and made us feel at "home"! Their added little touches meant so much. I especially looked forward to breakfast every morning, kudos to " chef Lyn"!! We turned into "cookie monsters" in the afternoons and could hardly wait to see what delicious treats Lyn and the staff had prepared!!We enjoyed visiting many waterfalls,browsing quaint little shops and Mount Washington.I would have to say Jackson Falls was my favorite water fall of all. We spent hours there climbing over granite rocks and splashing my feet in the cool water, what a peaceful place! I loved it so much, we went there twice!We enjoyed relaxing on the Inn's grounds, spending time reading in adirondack chairs overlooking the river and also swimming in the pool! We are hoping to send my daughter and son-in-law here for a romantic getaway when he returns safely from Iraq. We are looking forward to returning in the winter season to enjoy the snow and relax by the fireplace in the cottage! We stayed five days, and it wasn't long enough!

Superb Stay at Inn at Ellis River

5 on August 20, 2007

We have just had a marvelous stay in a gorgeous Bed and Breakfast—the Inn at Ellis River in Jackson, New Hampshire. We had the kindest hosts in the world—Lyn and Frank Baker. We had such a wonderful time that I would like to write and let others know about the fabulous hospitality and lovely rooms and public spaces. Our room was delightful and the breakfasts were superb. The spectacular frittatas, omelets, and home-baked raspberry, blueberry, and lemon cakes were just the beginning. Each afternoon after a day of hiking, we were greeted by the smiling faces of Lyn and Frank in addition to home-baked cookies and beverages. The screened-in pagoda overlooking the beautiful Ellis River is another touch never to be forgotten. Thanks to Lyn and Frank for a truly delightful time.

A Memory to Cherish!

4.0 on August 12, 2007

Expecting a pleasant environ from the web site, we were delighted to find the Inn at Ellis River far exceeded our expectations. Nestled at the edge of Ellis River a discreet distance back from SH16, there was very little traffic noise to interrupt the lullaby of the rapid water flowing over rocks outside our balcony. Our room was luxuriously appointed with great and loving details: from the satin-sheeted king size four post bed to the spa additives for the double jacuzzi to the fragrantly inviting fluffy white towels. We enjoyed Lyn's excellent gourmet breakfasts, Christine's mouth-watering cookies in the afternoon and a picnic lunch in the screened gazebo on the grounds. Our hosts were solicitous without being intrusive on our anniversary celebration and the entire experience was one of elegance without demanding formality. We had so many choices for on site entertainment - pool, sauna, game room, lounge - the only time we left the premises during our three day visit was to dine out. Even then, Lyn facilitated our experience by securing advanced reservations for us at the very busy restaurant. We highly recommend the Inn at Ellis River for any special occasion or just for a weekend of relaxation! Frank, Lyn and Christine go out of their way to make your time with them at the Inn at Ellis River a memory to cherish!

Ellis River Review

5 on August 03, 2007

This is about our third year staying at this Inn and we enjoy the Inn thoroughly and the Innkeepers. When we come, we sort of "take over" the Inn as we are very comfortable there we fell like we are being waited on hand and foot for all our needs. This time we stayed for Seek the Peak and they were able to accommodate our getting up early on Saturday as well as ice packs on our return.

Gracious hosts and Romantic Setting

4.6 on July 26, 2007

This is our 2d time visiting the Inn at Ellis River. The hosts are so gracious, and remembered us from our last visit. Our room was wonderful - balcony overlooking the river, wonderfully comfy bed...we kept our sliding door open and let the sound of the river lull us to sleep at night...just wonderful!

A perfect stay for our anniversary, 2 years in a row!

5 on July 22, 2007

My husband and I have had 2 wonderful experiences at this inn! We loved the hospitality from Lyn, Frank, and Christing (and Ginger too!). They are so welcoming and friendly. The breakfast is out of this world! We had 2 perfect anniversaries in a row and are planning a third for next year!

A weekend in heaven!

5 on July 19, 2007

My boyfriend had taken me to the inn as a birthday present. We were so comfortable here that we had to stay an extra night. Lyn, Frank, and Christine are really the ones who made the weekend so wonderful. The rooms were gorgeous, and had everything we needed. The meals were amazing (don't even get me started on Lyn's bacon!). The sound of the river out the bedroom slider, and relaxing in the jacuzzi each night made the trip unforgettable. Every last detail was thought about for us. We are definately planning on coming back, hopefully soon!

Wonderful Wedding Weekend!

5 on July 12, 2007

Inn at Ellis River is truly a gem in the White Mountains. The property is beautiful inside and out, and immaculately kept, but the true treasures are the Innkeepers. Lyn and Frank helped us plan our wedding "long-distance" and enabled us to make our dream a reality, even finding our favorite cheeses and making our favorite hors d'ouevres for the reception! (I think if they could have held off the rain on Saturday, they would! As it turns out, we moved the ceremony inside by a candlelit fireplace, and it was wonderfully romantic -- possibly even better than the planned gazebo overlooking the river!) Our closest family members joined us for the ceremony and reception at the Inn, and all have told us how truly impressed they were by the gracious hospitality of the staff and the easy elegance of the event. Lyn, Frank, and Christine were truly wonderful, and made us feel like we were the only guests at the Inn during the busy 4th of July week and weekend! The amenities at the Inn at Ellis River are simply superb. The rooms are gorgeous! The service is amazing! The breakfasts are consistently outstanding! The picnic lunch is delicious! The pub room is fun, and the puzzles by the piano are endlessly entertaining! We are planning to spend our first anniversary back at the Inn, and cannot wait to return! The trip from Long Island will be well worth it! We most highly recommend Inn at Ellis River!

A gift for our 30th

5 on July 02, 2007

Our children chose to give us a gift of two nights away for our 30th wedding anniversary. Somehow they found and made reservations for us at the Inn at Ellis River. this was our first stay at an inn. It was wonderful. They could not have made a better choice. It was a perfect blend of hospitality and privacy. Frank, Lyn and Christine seemed to know when to show up and offer conversation or advice and when to just let us enjoy each other. The location in Jackson offers solitude, access to Jackson with an easy walk, and a short drive to the best of activities, both out-of-doors and in. the food was to die for, falling somewhere between breakfast and desert. All the rooms provided a blend of luxury and comfort that made us feel that we did not ahve a chance to take full advantage of them. Oh well, I guess we will just have to come back.

A Perfect Stay In Every Way

5 on June 07, 2007

This is truly a special place, run lovingly by special people! Lyn, Frank and Christine made our early-May stay during "MS Week in Jackson" perfect in every way. From the moment Lyn and Christine met us at the door to welcome us, my friend and I sensed that we were in for an enjoyable stay. As we toured the "common areas" we soon realized that there was nothing "common" about them! Everything was beautifully decorated with obvious attention to both style and comfort. The cozy lounge was the perfect place to sit, talk, and enjoy a glass of wine. Our bedroom was lovely and the beds were SO comfortable that the delicious gourmet breakfasts were our only incentive to get up in the morning. I've stayed in numerous inns throughout New England and can honestly say that The Inn at Ellis River is one of the best - it's THE place to stay if you're visiting Jackson!

A great time to relax and enjoy

5 on June 07, 2007

Myhusband and I choose this inn to spend our very long over due honeymoon....we were married in May 2005 and we had want to stay here then. It was worth the wait for us OUr room was wonderful, I especially liked the gently niose of the river that could be heard from our porch door. We had great service from Lynn, frank and christine. Great the sweet stuff. Ginger(the dog) was a nice homey touch that made me and my husband hate to leave. We'll be making a yearly trip to this INN for our anniversary. I'm even going to spring for my parents to go to this Inn, I enjoyed it that much.

Honeymoon Delight

5 on June 04, 2007

Our stay at the Inn at Ellis River exceeded expectations - to say the least. The hosts are so warmly welcoming and offer all the right attention to detail (e.g., being served gluten-free food for breakfast as followup to our reservation note) that makes you want to book another stay immediately. We highly recommend this idyllic locale for a romantic getaway.

25th Anniversary Trip

4.6 on May 29, 2007

We chose the Inn at Ellis River to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. Our stay was very pleasant and Frank, Lynn, and Christine were excellent hosts. We stayed in the Paradise Falls room and it was very comfortable, with oh-so-soft sheets, a very comfortable bed, a sitting room, and large bathroom with a two person jacuzzi tub. The gourmet breakfasts were delicious...Lynn is a marvelous cook. It was a delightful stay and we felt very much welcomed and at home. We will be returning for weekend in the near future!!

Hospitality with a capital H

5 on May 29, 2007

We just returned from a week-end stay & we were treated like royalty! We've visited the Inn several times & we are never disappointed. Frank, Lynne & Christine are superb hosts - their attention to detail is outstanding. The gourmet breakfasts are to die for!! We will definitely be visiting again!

Absolutely Wonderful

5 on May 25, 2007

After staying at many inns in the New England area, I've stumbled onto my favorite. Christine, Lyn & Frank are very sweet and down to earth. The service it excellent. The rooms are beautifully decorated and immaculate. The food is as good as any I've ever had. And the attention to detail throughout the inn is amazing. It's a place that you look forward to arriving and don't want to leave. Jana & David

breathtaking and rest assured

5 on May 21, 2007

Lovely, quiet, well maintained Inn. The Innkeepers should be commended for their hard work and dedication. The rooms were all beautifully furnished and the decor is perfect. the food is fabulous. Lyn should be a chef. It was our 2nd visit to the Inn and Lyn offered to help us get married there. We love it there!!
