Jackson house description

Top of the World - a lovely home on Top of a Mountain with spectacular views of the White Mountains.


We call it the "Ski House", really it is the perfect vacation home for one or two families, a few couples or group of friends. The house is designed to share great meals and conversation and enjoy memorable sunsets. Stay home and read and relax, or find your adventure of the day. Depending on your interests the options in the area are endless.

You can take a short hike right from the house that provides a 360 degree view of the mountains. There are gentle and more rigorous hikes just a few miles from the house. Ski Attitash, Wildcat, Cranmore or Black Mt. for beginners and no crowds. Nordic skiing and golf are just down the road in the village of Jackson.

In the summer there is canoeing or kayaking the Saco River, rock climbing with trained guides, hanging out on the Ellis River, Zip lines at Wildcat or Bretton Woods, hike up Mt. Washington - if you are tired take the Cog Railroad down. If you can't resist the opportunity to shop, check out the world class stores in tax free NH in North Conway. For younger kids Storyland is just down the road. If you like to dine out there are outstanding dinner restaurants in Jackson and beyond, great lunch and breakfast as well.

We welcome you to create the same kind of magical memories our family and friends have experienced for years at the "ski house" in Jackson. There is a history of laughter, adventure and story telling. We are happy to share our space with you, our favorite hikes, restaurants, and things to experience in our book of our personal favorites for all ages on the coffee table when you arrive. My Dad, who was Swiss, built this house in search of the closest thing he could find to Switzerland without being there. It was one of the best decisions he ever made!
