Nestled within the White Mountains, Jackson is a picture-perfect embodiment of New England charm. This village often hailed as the "Jewel of the White Mountains," invites visitors to step back in time and immerse themselves in a landscape of natural beauty, outdoor adventures, and warm hospitality. Jackson is a gateway to some of the most awe-inspiring natural wonders in the White Mountains. The village is enveloped by towering peaks, lush forests, and the scenic Ellis River. In the fall, it's a canvas of vibrant foliage, drawing leaf-peepers from far and wide. The Jackson Covered Bridge, an iconic symbol of the town, adds to its picturesque allure.


Nature enthusiasts will find their haven in Jackson. From hiking the renowned Jackson Falls to skiing at the nearby Black Mountain Ski Area, this village offers year-round outdoor excitement. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling in the winter are complemented by summer pursuits like hiking, biking, and golfing. Jackson is steeped in history, with roots dating back to the 18th century. Visitors can explore the past at the Jackson Historical Society Museum, which preserves the town's heritage through artifacts and exhibits. The village itself feels like a living history book, with its preserved architecture and timeless ambiance.


The quaint Main Street is a delightful stroll through a bygone era. Lined with charming boutiques, cozy cafes like Autumn Nomad and J-Town Deli, the inviting Snowvillage Inn, and cute shops like Dutch Bloemanwinkle and the famous White Mountain Puzzle.


 Its charisma and the scarcity of private land - over three-quarters of Jackson land is National Forest - have pushed house prices to a higher level than elsewhere in the Valley. Housing in Jackson includes homes and townhouses near the Village, in the hills heading north toward Black Mountain, along the Ellis River to Wildcat Ski area, down the Thorn Hill and Dundee Roads toward Bartlett, and west on the Green Hill Road toward Iron Mountain.
