Bottom Line

The 61-room Wentworth is a charming historic boutique hotel centrally located in picturesque Jackson. Housed in several Queen Anne-style buildings, this upscale property offers a variety of room types, all decorated in cozy traditional inn decor, and many featuring outdoor hot tubs and working gas fireplaces. There is plenty to do on-site year-round, including swimming in the heated outdoor pool, working out in the well-equipped gym, or getting pampered at the spa. The restaurant serves an excellent farm-to-table menu and an outstanding free breakfast. The nearby Eagle Mountain House & Golf Club has similar amenities and lower rates, but The Wentworth has more charm and is in better shape.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Charming Victorian-style boutique hotel with cozy interiors and a romantic atmosphere

First opened in 1869 and remodeled several times over the years, the historic Wentworth has a quaint, romantic atmosphere that draws couples year-round. Its 61 rooms are housed in several Queen Anne-style buildings on either side of Main Street, and although each section has its own unique style and features, the property has lovely cozy interiors throughout. Some elements verge on dated -- such as the moss-green carpets and the pastel-color chairs -- but the style overall is cute and homey. 

Housed in the Main Inn building, the lobby feels warm and inviting, with wooden floors, an open fireplace, Persian-style rugs in red hues, and several seating clusters placed along the large bay windows. Located off the lobby, the small sun room with a pool table, a fireplace, and some couches is a favorite among guests on colder days. The bar is cozy but quiet, with weekly piano and jazz nights and a good selection of drinks. The restaurant has a similar vibe and decor style, with handsome wood floors, a fireplace, and a neutral color palette. 

Location

In central Jackson, adjacent to a golf course and near Jackson Falls

Map of The Wentworth

The Wentworth is centrally located in picturesque Jackson, adjacent to an 18-hole golf course and within walking distance of pretty Jackson Falls, the town’s cute covered bridge, and a handful of restaurants, bars and shops. A cross-country ski area can be found right by the hotel, and Crawford Notch State Park is an easy drive away. Attitash Mountain Resort can be reached in about 10 minutes, while Black Mountain and Story Land amusement park are each just five minutes’ drive from the hotel. The location a 25-minute drive from scenic Kancamagus Highway allows for easy access to the rest of the White Mountains region. 

Rooms

Quaint, old inn-style rooms, many with outdoor hot tubs 

The hotel has 61 rooms ranging from cozy Standard Rooms with dated carpets, to elegant suites with large jetted tubs and separate seating areas. All are decorated in a charming old inn style, with neutral tones and a few wine-color accents, and all have large windows overlooking the grounds. Classic touches such as tufted chairs, oriental-style rugs, and heavy drapes are in line with the property’s historic atmosphere, but some may find the style a little stuffy. 

Standard amenities include flat-screen TVs, quality mattresses (last replaced in March 2015), DVD players, free Wi-Fi, coffeemakers, and Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. All but the Main Inn and a few Fairlawn Cottage units have working gas fireplaces, outdoor hot tubs, and king-size sleigh or four-poster beds; a few also have single sofa beds. Groups and larger families seeking some privacy can book the Amster Cottage, which has four rooms overlooking a private courtyard with an eight-person outdoor hot tub and a sauna. These rooms can also be booked individually. The property also owns several two- and three-bedroom condos complete with kitchens, living rooms, washer/dryers, and gas or wood fireplaces. 

Features

An outdoor pool, a spa, a fitness center, a restaurant, meeting rooms, and free parking

The property offers a wide array of on-site amenities for all seasons, including features for families and couples of all ages. The seasonal outdoor heated pool is located in a quiet spot in the back of the property, and draws all types of travelers in the warmer months. Housed in the Thornycroft Cottage, the spa offers two massage rooms, including one for private treatments and another one for couples. In-room spa treatments are also available. The fitness center is small but features a decent array of cardio and strength-training machines as well as a yoga room. 

The restaurant is known for its excellent farm-to-table dinner menu, which changes seasonally and is made with locally sourced produce. With its fireplace, cozy decor and weekly piano and jazz evenings, the bar is a great spot for a quiet drink. The hotel is a popular wedding venue year-round, and features both indoor and outdoor event spaces with catering services. All guests get a free continental or full breakfast, and hotel-wide Wi-Fi and outdoor parking are also included in room rates.
