Restaurant suggestion for Jackson, NH.
- pianochikke Oct 16, 2006 12:45 PM
I found this Inn/B&B in Jackson, NH (online), called
Nestlenook Farm. My BF & I are probably going to eat somewhere
in Jackson, but we don't know of any good places.
Of course I'm going to look online for good restaurants
in Jackson, NH., it's that you all seem so knowledgeable,
that I thought I'd run it by you guys, first!
BTW, we're going there on the 1st of November, so if
you have any suggestions, please let me know before then!
Thanks! Cheers, Pianochikke
I should probably be more specific in terms of what kind of
restaurant I'm/we're looking for:
Something as romantic as possible, as comfortable as possible,
not too pretentious(sp?), & something moderately(sp?) priced.
The Wildcat Inn and Tavern meets your goals. The menu varies, but my wife and I ate their about a month ago and, as usual, had a couple of great meals. It's on the "Jackson Loop" and easy to spot.
The price isn't cheap, but if you go light on the wine and/or alcohol, it shouldn't break the bank. The tavern part has a similar menu, and a more relaxing atmosphere and occasionally has entertainment on weekends.
A little bit outside of Jackson is the New England Inn with Tuckerman's Tavern in Intervale (about midway on the Intervale loop). New England Inn has pricier stuff, but Tuckerman's Tavern has a full menu with everything from burgers and pizza to prime rib, as well as a great selection of beers.
Thanks for your suggestions!
Tuckerman's Tavern sounds great.
However, I have been thinking
that we (my BF!) will have driven
roughly 2hrs. & 40 min. to get to
Nestlenook Farm, and may not want
to drive anymore that day/evening.
Nestlenook Farm has a "special",
where it's $80-$85 (not sure if that
includes tips!) for dinner for 2.
Apparently, you get a choice from the menu,
including appetizers(sp?), and 2 coffees.
They bring it right to your room!
Does that sound like a good deal to you
guys. I know what I was looking for in
terms of pricing, that's kind of steep.
I might be able to get help from my Sis,
though! (As a Xmas present.)
That's also $40 per person, and I'm not
sure what the food'll be like. Should I
take that risk?
Actually, I was wrong about the Nestlenook Farm having
a special. What they do, though, is give you a gift
certificate to a local restaurant, for dinner.
The price stays the same as I mentioned in my post
The two restaurants are: Thompson House Eatery,
and the 1785 Inn. Anyone ever heard/ate about/at
either of those places? Thanks, Pianochikke.
Hey, Girl --
Something REALLY worth looking into -- The Inn at Thorn Hill in Jackson. If you want to spend the night, you can get a truly romantic room, with fireplace, jacuzzi, the whole nine.
A 3 course dinner and full breakfast is included in the room rate. The food is truly superior, and there are two options for dining -- the main dining room, which is (naturally) more expensive, and the pub, which is more reasonable and equally cozy! (You can also have dinner delivered to your room)
My husband and I live in ME, and try to get to The Inn at Thorn Hill once a year, to rest and recharge. Here's the link:
Final tip: if you call at the last minute, oftentimes you can get a room at a reduced rate. Mid-week specials are also available. Great food, great wine, great location!
Good luck :)
