Nestlenook has very special sleigh rides. We were here 22 years ago for our honeymoon and took a sleigh ride. We came back for our 22nd anniversary and not much has changed. We actually took two sleigh rides this time. One on Christmas Eve and one the day after Christmas. Our driver was Bobby and the two Belgian draft horses were Pete and Fred for both rides. Both were excellent rides. The one on Christmas Eve was icy, as freezing rain had fell in the previous days on top of snow. Bobby did a great job taking us through the icy woods and fields that entails the trail. The ride on the 26th was more than beautiful. It was snowing which made it that much more special. Courier and Ives or Thomas Kinkade could not have painted a better winter scene. The trail takes you througout the Nestlenook property. You go through their fields and up and down some small hills. You see all the highlights of their property such as the lake and the skating area. Unfortunately the 200 year old Inn burned down in early November so that is not there any longer. Hot Chocolate is also availble in the Gazebo before or after your sleigh ride. Ice skating and snow shoeing is also available but we have never did either. All of this is weather dependant of course. The fee for the sleigh ride is,IIRC,$18 per person. Well worth it, IMO.
This is perfect outing for couples or families. if you are in the Jackson area in the winter you should not miss the opportunity to take a magical sleigh ride through the Nestlenook Farm Resort.

As a surprise Christmas gift, my boyfriend booked a day trip to Nestlenook to take a sleigh ride and go ice skating. We were told to arrive at the sleigh drop off 15 minutes early. We got there and had no trouble finding parking. The grounds are very beautiful. The snow and white lights make everything look magical! Our sleigh ride was a lot of fun and our driver told us stories along the way. The horses (Rex & Bob) were stunning. The man made pond was very large and the fires that they had going assured you wouldn't get too chilly! The only complaint that I would make is that the owners have 2 very large dogs that sit in the check in area. They have a lard bark and are a bit intimidating. If you have small children, this may scare them. Other than that, it was a wonderful trip!

My family and I visited Nestlenook for the first time and we loved it. The place is perfectly set up and overall it's truly something out of a storybook. We went on the sleigh ride and our tour guide was very friendly. And it started to snow right as we were on top of one of the bridges. Ice skating on the pond was also wonderful. Definitely the highlight of our trip to New Hampshire.

Absolutely loved the enchanting sleigh ride through the woods of the Nestlenook Farm. The several Christmas lights on the trees and gazebos were enhanced by the icy snow reflection, it was a beautiful winter wonderland. Looking forward to returning for another sleigh ride and some ice skating!

We hit it just right -- fresh snow, 3 horse drawn sleighs full of happy people with comical "drivers" -- oh and the 8 stops along the route to get delicious chocolates from a variety of inns and country stores!
