and so are we! We apologize for our absence from this blog. It has been a very busy few months with all sorts of happening around the inn. For the latest and greatest happenings, like our Sunday cribbage games and weekly FREE Pasta Feed, be sure to check out our events calendar.
It’s a full schedule here at The Wildcat Inn & Tavern in Jackson, NH. With the natural snow that has fallen and the outstanding work of the snowmakers at the many surrounding ski resorts this is an ideal time to come to Jackson for either a mid-week or a New Hampshire weekend getaway. Through the end of January (2012) you can stay Sunday through Thursday nights for only $59 per night (double occupancy). In addition to our low lodging rates here’s a quick rundown on the fun nights at The Wildcat Tavern:
Tuesdays: Our Hoot Night (open mic night) has been going on for 25 years and brings the best local musicians into the Tavern for a night or great live music and lots of fun.
Wednesdays: Our popular Dinner For Two night happens every Wednesday. Two entrees, two people and one great price…only $24.50 for our best entrees. Reservations are strongly recommended as the dining room fills quickly.
Thursdays: FREE all-you-can-eat pasta feed for area ski resort, ski shop and Forest Service employees. Not one of these employees? That’s ok, show today’s lift ticket and pay only $5.95 and if you didn’t ski pay only $8.95. (Ends mid-March)

Happy New Year!
It’s hard to believe that we’re full on into September now with the children back to school and foliage season just around the corner. The busy summer tourist season may be over but that doesn’t mean the wedding season has ended. For us, the fall wedding season is just as strong as the summer. After all, there isn’t much in this world more beautiful than being outside surrounded by the glorious autumn colors of New Hampshire.
The Wildcat Inn & Tavern in Jackson, NH is comprised of a 90 seat main dining room divided into 5 distinct spaces, a 90 seat Tavern with roaring fire places, our beautiful outdoor gardens and deck, and 12 inn rooms and suites. Each of these areas can be used exclusively for wedding rehearsal dinners, private parties or business meetings and events. For guests thinking of holding any kind of ceremony at The Wildcat there are several great locations, inside and out, for exchanging vows. There are also other great locations within walking distance of The Wildcat including, “The Little White Church” and the waterfalls.
Every event at The Wildcat Inn and Tavern is customized to meet the needs of our guests so we invite you to come for a tour of the entire inn and the beautiful grounds surrounding the inn. We look forward to helping make your event special and as wonderful as you imagine.
It’s hard to believe that Memorial Day and Father’s Day have come and gone and July is just around the corner. Recently, we’ve been very busy doing some spring cleaning around the inn and prepping the gardens for your enjoyment. Whether you prefer sitting in the sun or in the shade we have a spot just right for you. Doesn’t it seem that food always tastes better when you’re dining outside?
Speaking of dining…on Monday nights we are now offering half price ribs and on Sundays we have 2-for-1 appetizers all day. We’re also putting the finishing touches on a brand new summer menu with lots of new additions, all your old favorites and even some daily specials we think you’ll find darn near impossible to resist. To highlight just a couple of our more popular menu choices we have Lobster Macaroni & Cheese which has penne pasta, garlic & cheddar cheese, cream sauce, lobster meat, parmesan cheese, parsley and garlic bread. For something on the lighter side how about our Walnut Gorgonzola Salad made up of mixed greens, candied walnuts, cranberries, gorgonzola cheese and sweet raspberry vinaigrette.
Whether you want to dine in our air conditioned dining room, the tavern or in our outside garden we hope to see you soon.
Though the weather has been quite rainy lately the temps are due to climb dramatically this week and land in the 70′s with a bit of sunshine mixed in. With this weekend being Memorial Day it’s a long weekend and the unofficial kickoff of summer activities here in Jackson, North Conway and the greater Mount Washington Valley. Here are just a couple of the many things to do this weekend:
Alton Weagle Day: Come help us celebrate this great man who had a great love of Mt. Washington. He climbed Mt. Washington several times and a variety of ways including walking backwards and pushing a wheel barrow full of sugar. Check out The Mt. Washington Auto Road for more details.
ENTRAIN in the Valley: The valley favorite ENTRAIN will be performing Saturday at Theater In The Wood in Intervale. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door and it’s BYOB.
Race for Reading: Also in Intervale is the annual Race for Reading. This event is a fundraiser for the Believe In Books Literacy Foundation which encourages the reading and love of books.
And of course we have live music, Jeremy Dean & Heather Pearson, performing in the Tavern Saturday night. We’ll also have prime rib available.
This time of year the valley is fairly quiet since all the ski resorts are now closed and they haven’t opened up yet for their summer activities. There’s plenty going on at The Wildcat Inn & Tavern though. It seems we’re always busy planning for the next special event like a wedding rehearsal dinner, business meeting, birthday party, holiday party or just our regular weeknight special promotions and live music.
This week coming up we are having 100 guests from the Tri County CAP organization for a meeting. Then on Tuesday we have our weekly Hoot Night (open mic night) hosted by the great Jon Sarty of The White Mountain Boys. On Wednesday, it’s our weekly dinner for two (only $23.50) and some great jazz and big band music by The Swingtones. The events seem to go on and on all week.
The entire month of May is very busy with private parties but don’t let that stop you from visiting us and enjoy the fun here in Jackson. Don’t forget that during the month of May you can stay FREE on any Tuesday or Wednesday night so we hope to see you soon.
I know you’re going to find this hard to believe since I work for The Wildcat Inn and Tavern but I don’t get the chance to go to Hoot Night on Tuesdays very often. Then when I do go I always ask myself why I don’t go more often because it’s so much fun.
What makes it so fun? Glad you asked. First there’s the Tavern itself. A lot of places might call themselves taverns but very few actually have the look and feel of an authentic tavern. From the flooring to the fireplace to the old fashioned wooden sled used for the beer taps the Wildcat certainly fits the bill as a tavern. Next is the people. You have people of all ages and walks of life that come to enjoy their friends company and some good music. Last and certainly not least, the music. The quality of musicians that perform on Hoot Night is incredible. On any given night you could have pianists, guitarists, fiddlers, drummers and the list goes on.
So the next time you’re at home sitting in front of the tv and you realize it’s a Tuesday night, shut off the tube and head to The Wildcat Inn and Tavern in Jackson for a night you’ll enjoy and talk about for a long time.
