The Wentworth Inn Giveaway

This past winter I hosted a getaway giveaway for a night at the Wentworth: a cozy Inn nestled in Jackson, New Hampshire at the foot of the White Mountains. Niko and Morgan were the winners, and I'm SO GLAD!! Not only did they win a night at the Inn, but also a photo shoot with me in the mountains! We dined together, hiked and relaxed at this historic and cozy hotel in the mountains! They were treated like gold with a welcome bottle of wine, a cozy bedroom with a hot tub, lunch, dinner and breakfast!

After finding out they had won, Niko took the opportunity to reach out and ask if it would be okay to plan a surprise proposal while we were there! I said OF COURSE and the plan was set in motion. Keep on reading to see more of this romantic Winter engagement in the White Mountains

 the Wentworth Inn, Jackson New Hampshire

The Wentworth Inn in Jackson, NH is a historic and cozy hotel in the heart of the White Mountains. Not only is it cute and cozy, but they offer a variety of amenities, including comfy rooms with hot tubs, lunch, dinner, and breakfast options, a recently updated Alpine bar and lounge, and so much more. The hotel staff treats guests like royalty, ensuring that they have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The hotel is perfect for elopements or small weddings, with its beautiful location and historic charm. They offer a variety of wedding and elopement packages for your event, and I have no doubt they would deliver on being an amazing New England venue.

Surprise Proposal in Crawford Notch

Nikola contacted me to set up the surprise proposal during our winter hiking photoshoot, and Morgan had no idea what was in store!  We even popped a bottle of champagne after she said yes! In addition to their giveaway photoshoot, we even documented their weekend giveaway and surprise proposal on Super 8! I'm so happy to offer this new addition as an add-on to my elopement packages!

We're so happy for Niko and Morgan and wish them all the love as they embark on an adventurous life together! We can't wait to see the joy on their faces when they say "I do" on their special day! Memories like these will last a lifetime.

Winter in the White Mountains

Winter in the White Mountains is a magical experience. The mountains are blanketed in snow, creating a winter wonderland perfect for outdoor sports and activities. Skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing are popular winter sports in the White Mountains, with many ski resorts and trails open and available. In addition, the White Mountains offer some of the best views in the winter, with snow-capped mountains and frozen waterfalls providing breathtaking sights. The Wentworth Inn is the perfect place to stay during a winter trip to the White Mountains, with cozy rooms, hot tubs, and easy access to winter activities. While it will be hard to leave the comfort of the hotel, you will be so fulfilled after spending a fun day out in the winter wonderland. And then just as happy to have a cozy room to return to afterward!

While the winter can be oh-so magical and enchanting, there are still some precautions and extra planning to consider when preparing for your trip! Like proper clothing, gear, and leaving extra time for slow travel conditions! Mother nature can throw some wild cards in the blustery season.

Winter Activities and Excursions in the White Mountains

There are so many amazing outdoor activities to enjoy near Jackson, NH. Whether you're planning an engagement, elopement, or just an adventure in the White Mountains; there are plenty of options! Even in the winter, you can still have a blast in the great outdoors, just remember to layer up!

Here are a few winter activity ideas:

Go skiing:

Jackson XC Nordic Ski

Black Mountain Ski

Attitash Ski

Visit the incredible Ice Castles

Go dogsledding with Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel

Rent an ATV or Snowmobile with Northeast Snowmobile rentals

Ride the Mt. Washington SnowCoach

I recommend booking your stay for AT LEAST two nights, but as many as you can truly! Don't rush your experience, but rather spread out your adventure as long as you can. It can be so much more enjoyable to have time to relax and lounge on your holiday, or elopement day! While you can absolutely hustle and see a ton and do a lot in a short amount of time, I guarantee you will be much more relaxed taking the extra time to just enjoy your stay in the area. I know every time I'm in the White Mountains it's never long enough and I can't wait to get back!
