We were looking for comfortable, quiet accommodations in the North Conway area that fit within our budget. We were a party of four (myself, husband, brother-in-law, daughter) for the first week and my daughter (15) and I stayed on for a second week. To save money, we wanted kitchen facilities so we wouldn't always have to eat out. I spent hours reviewing cabins, cottages, and motels on the internet. Right off, Will's Inn stood out in that they had pictures of each rental space type. We could see for ourselves exactly what the accommodations were like. They also did a great job of describing their amenities--including a non-chlorinated swimming pool that uses salt in place of chemicals! I've got to say, this pool was a big hit with all of us. No more chlorine fumes, and no need to shower that stuff right out of your hair when you get out. The website also described the owners, Mike and Beverly, their family and background in a way that made us feel like we'd be amongst friends.
When I phoned to make the reservations, Beverly worked hard to meet our needs, fulfilling the impression projected by their website that they are in the business of helping their guests have the most satisfying experience possible. At Will's, their slogan is "The Family Place" and we really found that to be true. My daughter had a wonderful time hanging out with various kids and teens she met at the pool and at the Saco River out back. There's also a nice area to have a campfire and a playground area for the younger ones. My daughter made friends with most of the front desk clerks and some of the cleaning people. We all enjoyed meeting Beverly and Mike, who were personable and welcoming.
There was only one disappointment: one of the beds we had hoped to use was a sleep sofa in the living room. When we opened this out, the mattress was in very bad shape. My husband ended up sleeping on it as a sofa. I'm sure they would have given us a cot if we had asked, but my husband didn't want to bother.
