Year Purchased: 2005
About: Norman, a self employed contractor and Lisa, a high school guidance counselor have two children who are in college and two dogs who were adopted by shelters in the Conway area. Since we have owned 'The Betty', we have worked part time at Black Mountain, become involved in Jackson XC Ski touring and have met many good friends and acquaintances. It is easy to feel a part of the close knit village of Jackson and you may feel the same by the time your stay ends. We enjoy taking advantage of all the amenities that are so accessible in the white mountains and especially enjoy hiking and both downhill and cross country skiing. When we are not in Jackson, we spend time on Cape Cod and are avid swimmers and sailors. Our dogs, Lewis, a beagle/bassett and Clark, an australian cattle hound/bassett join us as often as possible on our adventures. Our two children are in college, our son finishing at University of Tampa and our daughter a sophomore at University of Vermont. We try to follow in the footsteps of Bill and Betty Whitney who were so influential in the community and hope to leave our footprint as well. We have reveled in our time in Jackson and the White Mountains and hope that all who stay at 'The Betty' will accumulate great experiences and memories as we have.
Why Jackson, NH, USA:
We have vacationed in Jackson for many years and Norman was a S-kimo. When we had the opportunity to purchase our own home, Jackson was the only option we considered. We have never regretted the investment. We are located at the top of the J-bar on Black Mountain. It is the oldest overhead lift in the country and the slope is also pasture for the horses that are a summer feature of Black Mountain. The Jackson Falls is close by and not only is a beautiful sight but is a popular summer swimming hole. 'The Betty' is a stone's throw from many hiking trails including Doublehead, Diana's Baths, Wildcat Trail and Mt. Washington. For skiers, Jackson is close to Attitash, Wildcat, Cranmore and of course, Black Mountain. For parents, it is close to Storyland as well as a large indoor water park at Red Jacket Resort, miniature golf, ice cream and much more. Shoppers will love the close proximity to North Conway and the many outlets and shops. For those who want a nature experience, Jackson is quaint and quiet, with nature at your doorstep. For those who are looking for retail and entertainment, there are many fine restaurants and pubs that offer an active night life. 'The Betty' can provide something for everyone.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is situated in a perfect location and has almost 360 degree views of the mountains. The wrap around porch allows you to spend many hours relaxing in the sun and the screened porch offers shade and protection from the elements. We love that once we settle in, we do not have to move the car. A walk down the hill gets you to the Shovel Handle pub where good food and evening entertainment await. Black Mountain is also at the bottom of the hill and the Fichera family offers horseback rides as well as overnight treks up the mountain. Our daily walks around Whitney Hill Loop provide exercise and fresh air, and maybe even a moose siting! Trek to the bottom of the hill and two golf courses are available as well as a number of restaurants. When you return to 'The Betty' rest on the deck and watch the sun set as the horses graze practically at the front door. There will never be a lack of things to do during your stay in Jackson NH.
