“Good location, clean”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We stayed here on a Saturday night. The place was clean and looked well-maintained. The breakfast was pretty good. This inn is in the heart of waterville valley. It is not too far from Lincoln either. We hiked near Lincoln on Saturday morning and stayed the night here. Overall nothing to complain about. Good place to rest for the night.

The Silver Fox Inn was a wonderful surprise after a long bus ride. The Inn is small and cosy. Has a very homelike atmosphere to it. Our room was clean and comfortable. I was with a bus tour of about 50 people and we had dinner there one night also. The food was wonderful and have been told that it is prepared by the owners wife. I also liked the resident cat!! The owners live there.The wifi worked great and I enjoyed the vintage looking ski prints. I am sure that it would be a really neat place to stay in the winter. I also enjoyed sitting out on their deck and looking at the beautiful mountains. Too bad I didn't have enough time to just sit,relax and enjoy the property. Would definitely stay there again.

Thank you very much! We think we have the best breakfast for 100 miles and our guests rave reviews seem to confirm that. It is quite unlike most hotel "free breakfasts" in that everything is prepared fresh from scratch daily and the variety is always one of the things guest rave about. It sounds like you'll just have to plan another trip to sit, relax and enjoy the property and our beautiful valley.

We got there last minute, without reservations and we were able to get a room.
The front desk clerk was nice and helpful.
The room, is outdated (if you compare to some big chain places) but clean and comfortable. And the air unit made a little noise, but we were so tired that didn't really matter.
The breakfast was very good. Homemade and plentiful.
and the staff makes the place, very nice and warm people.

Thank you for your review. You point out something that seems to please all of our guests: we are definitely a large chain property. We provide more the feel of a bed & breakfast and a mountain lodge surrounded by breathtaking views. We our a family owned and operated hotel so we are on the property at all times to insure our guests get the kind of attention one NEVER finds at a big chain. We hope you come back soon.

This is not your regular Best Western hotel. Our experience at the Silver Fox Inn was made wonderful by the most friendly people who own and manage this place. The hotel is located in the Waterville Valley which is a beautiful place. Not play did we enjoy the outside but also the inside. We are a family of four (2 young kids) and prefer eating home cooked food which we carried along with us on our 3 day trip. The wonderful couple who manage the hotel welcomes us to use their kitchen, dining area and cutlery which meant more work for them. There also provide bicycles which hotel guests can use without any extra charge. Overall it was a wonderful experience - a perfect location with perfect hosts.

We're glad you got a chance to stay with us and to see one of our local celebrities, the bear. It's wonderful to come from a city and realize that just a short drive from the hustle and bustle the wonders of nature about. It's why we chose to operate our family owned hotel here what makes our guest come back again and again.

What a great place to stay in lovely Waterville Valley. My mother and I shared a nice ground floor room with two double beds, only for one night. We arrived early and it was right before summer busy season so they cheerfully let us check in early. Room was clean and comfortable, not a lot of frills. Hotel is laid out nicely, with a large living room type area to hang around in , a GREAT library upstairs, and lots of deck area outside. Location is supurb. Although we didn't, there wewre bicycles that were available for guests to ride. Everything was within an easy walk. Beds were comfortable, shower was great. There was a nice wine and cheese time in the afternoon, and a really noteworthy breakfast in the morning. The breakfast was so above and beyond what they really had to do. Staff was pleasant. I would be happy to return and to recommend this hotel to anyone. Great value.

We're glad you enjoyed our mountain retreat. It definitely isn't a typical Best Western but, rather, more like a bed & breakfast and that's just the way we like it! I wish everyone would stop raving about how great the breakfast is because my wife, our chef, is going to demand a raise. Please come back and see us again.

I stayed here off season for a workshop. I loved the homemade food and personal service. The chef is amazing! I would like to see more electric sockets however. I did not find one in the room to charge my phone, laptop or kindle. Also, the only socket in the bathroom was placed ideally for the hair dryer, which I did not use, but was completely unsafe for use of the coffee maker, which I did use. They really need to update this if marketing for class and workshop getaways. For a ski getaway without plugging in, it would be ideal.

Thank you for your comments. We are family owned and operated inn and the chef is my wife Susan who also owns a catering company that serves the region. So, guests at our hotel always get great tasting, freshly prepared meals. Our breakfast has become almost legendary if I might brag a bit. I did want to comment about the electrical outlets. Per Best Western brand standards there is a large, 3 outlet plug located on each desk in the room, right next to the coffee maker. Perhaps because you hadn't had that first cup of coffee when you went looking you missed it.
