Jackson House Hotel Review: Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Jackson House was built by Moses Jackson in 1894 and now provides guests with a taste of the nineteenth century --- albeit one that features modern amenities. Guests can enjoy a wealth of relaxing activities, such as lazing in the Victorian-era parlor or lounging in front of the fireplace. They can also savor a full breakfast at private tables in the dining room, linger over afternoon tea, lemonade and homemade snacks, or simply sit out on the front porch and listen to the fountain. A heated spa pool is housed in a stained glass-encased conservatory. Despite its emphasis on history, Jackson House has kept up with the times and offers many modern amenities, including high-speed Internet access, gas fireplaces and in-room TVs with cable (including HBO). Its six guest rooms are furnished with period antiques such as spacious desks and chairs; they also come with high-thread count cotton towels and linens, hair dryers, central heat and air-conditioning, ceiling fans, signature robes and private marble bathrooms with luxurious amenities. The rooms are housed on two floors, and first-floor rooms feature twelve-foot ceilings. Families on vacation should consider seeking alternate accommodations, however; the Jackson House only welcomes children over the age of thirteen.
