We stayed here in the off season. If you aren't a hiker there is very little to do as everything closes in mid- October. However, the place is hopping in the summer and winter and this is a great place to stay.We had a kitchen,two bedrooms and a living room for two nights for under $200. This included access to...

We checked in on Monday 10/19 to a very quiet hotel. The rooms are large & tidy. The staff is super friendly (although the restaurant recommendations were not so good) & housekeeping did an awesome job servicing our room. Our only issue was with the temperature of the pool. It's half outside & the water was very cold for a...

We stayed here over the 10/18/15 foliage . It was ok. No thrills type place but ok to sleep at. People at front seat where very nice and courteous . Place needs a little updating. We bought the stay on groupon so I didn't feel I was paying to much for something that should be cheaper.

We arrived Thursday to a quiet night. That all changed Friday when all the hockey kids showed up. These kids ran the hotel and were never supervised by adults. Groups of at least 8 kids were running throughout the halls knocking on people's doors all night long making a ton of noise waking my 4 year old repeatedly. We were...

The goal of our vacation was to explore a place we'd never been and the Black Bear Lodge and Waterville Valley NH greatly exceeded all expectations. Upon arriving, check in was very smooth and we were provided with a list of activities, hiking trails, freedom passes etc. by the friendly desk clerk. We were on the first floor (room 112)...
