Christmas Farm Inn in Jackson, N.H.

The purpose of Z and I staying overnight in Jackson, N.H. was to visit the Christmas Farm Inn. I had bought an Eversave deal for a weeknight stay there, so it was the perfect excuse to jet off to the countryside for a few days.

The Christmas Farm Inn, in one word, is adorable. Their motto, scattered throughout the inn, is "There are no strangers, only friends we haven't met." 

The inn has also got quite a bit of history - just take a look at this tidbit of information from the inn's website:

"Part jail, part church, part farm house… Few country inns have as fragmented a history as the Christmas Farm Inn. Sadly, most of the official records of the inn’s early years were destroyed by a fire in the courthouse in 1886, but certain remnants of those roots have been passed down through time."

The room we stayed in was one of the main rooms - the Vixen (yes, most of the inn's rooms are named after reindeer). The entire inn had a Christmas theme, actually, as one would expect (we even enjoyed a drink at the Mistletoe Pub). 

The Vixen's amenities included a jacuzzi and a king-size bed.

Our Eversave deal also included a bottle of red or white wine.

Our room was spotless, comfortable and full of sunlight during the daytime. The jacuzzi wasn't a bad addition, either. 

Our Eversave deal also included breakfast in the morning. Christmas Farm has a short but simple breakfast menu, in addition to a spread of cereals, fruit and yogurt. I started my morning with a hot cup of coffee.

I also helped myself to some fresh fruit - including grapefruit, grapes, strawberries, cantaloupe and honey dew melon - while we waited for our breakfast orders. 

For my main course, I ordered the blueberry pancakes. I never order pancakes when I'm out for breakfast, so this was a nice treat (especially considering Christmas Farm uses their "own special recipe"). Much to my delight, the pancakes were slightly crispy on the outside/fluffy on the inside, loaded with wild blueberries, and wonderfully buttery in flavor. 

My pancakes also came with a side of crispy, semi-underseasoned homefries (I substituted the bacon or sausage for homefries).

Unfortunately, our stay at the Christmas Farm Inn came to a quick end. After we checked out, we made use of the beautiful morning by walking around the inn's property. In addition to the main inn, Christmas Farm has several other cottages people can stay at, as well as a spa and an indoor pool and fitness center (they also have an outdoor pool, which I assume opens this weekend).

This house is said to be the oldest home in Jackson - it's right next to the main inn.

More to come on where we went and what else we ate during our time in Jackson!
