Meet the Innkeepers

Meet the Innkeepers

Your hosts are Sally Carter & Dick Green, who were lucky enough to take over the Inn in 2004.

Both Sally & Dick are from the UK and had visited New England many times on vacation. They fell in love with the peaceful way of life of the White Mountain region. Before moving to Jackson, Sally was a Marketing Manager & Dick was a Distribution Manager – both roles which involved plenty of customer contact and excellent customer service!

Having been tourists in the region for many years, Sally & Dick are happy to offer advice and tips on how to make the most of your stay in Jackson. Lulu the cat & Dudley, the Old English Sheepdog are also in residence.

Inn History

“Life goes on and some things never change.”

As the noteriety of the village of Jackson increased, large hotels were built, many offering more than 100 rooms each. One of these large great hotels was the Eagle Mountain House, which was built originally in 1879 by Cyrus E. & Marcia Gayle. The present Carter Notch Inn was built around 1890 near the large hotel and began its life as a two room “annex” for overflow guests of the main Inn. As the Gale family grew, it was decided to enlarge the “Annex” for use as the family homestead. The two parlors were incorporated into one large living room with a beautiful fireplace and a kitchen and 5 bedrooms were added.

Over the years other changes were made and at one time it housed the serving staff of the Eagle Mountain House. After years of neglect, the “Annex” was completely renovated and opened for business again in 1994 as the Carter Notch Inn.

It is easy to understand why this Inn and its location is so popular. Step back into time with us and enjoy life as it is and was.
