Wildcat Inn & Tavern
94 Main St, Jackson, NH
The Wildcat Inn and Tavern is one of Mt Washington Valleys most iconic Inns, Tavern and after ski venues. Located in the beautiful destination resort Village of Jackson NH, the Inn offers short steps to many of the Valleys outdoor activities with the famous Jackson Cross Country trails passing through the property. The Inn offers 13 cozy, clean and comfortable rooms, some with fireplaces and includes a separate free-standing cottage next to the Garden, an outdoor dining and entertainment center.
Long known for the entertainment, good food and friendly after-ski or golf scenes the Taverns atmosphere perfectly matches guest expectations. The outdoor Garden with seating for 166 offers exceptional dining and entertainment from Spring through the foliage season. The Gardens are also a popular spot for private parties, rehearsal dinners and welcome parties, and weddings.
For over the 60 years the gardens at the Wildcat Inn and Tavern has been a favorite summer lunch and dinner spot for customers who come to enjoy the cooling shade of an ancient maple tree surrounded by an explosion of flowers and bushes from late spring to early Fall. Recently a modern outdoor stage was added for nightly music and larger concerts featuring nationally know musicians and bands. The most recent addition to the Gardens is an outdoor bar popular for cocktails and light dining.
The current owners have owned this Inn for an extended period of time, made many improvements to the Inn and feel it is time for a new operator to bring the Inn to a new level. The property is currently priced based upon the 2019 income and expense financials. Obviously 2020 with the pandemic is not a good indicator and in 2021 they had to close the Inn for a period of 3 months as they replaced all under-ground piping and septic leach field.
Long rumored at one point in time to have served as an “ice house” for the storage for blocks of pond and river ice stored in sawdust to chill the meats and produce of local inns and households – the building that is now a luxury 3 bedroom home is affectionately called “The Igloo”.
There are two smaller rooms that could be combined to create a nice suite that could increase revenues by another $20,000 per year. Also, there are two rooms off-line used for laundry storage and employee housing which would add at least another $40,000 in revenue.
As the Inn is well known for its entertainment a long-term plan has been to build a post and beam barn on site that could hold up to 120 people. This could increase the Inns ability to hold indoor entertainment in the winter months, weddings and group functions.
The Wildcat Inn and Tavern has a long-time reputation for making people happy and there is a great opportunity to continue the tradition.
