We booked last minute for one night during a road trip around New England. Staff upon check in couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, recommending places to eat and visit. We were offered evening wine, cheese, lemonade and cookies in the cosy lounge area - the open fire would be super in Winter! We ended up in an accessible room near the kitchen, but we did book last minute and a bus tour had taken up most of the rooms. The bed was huge and very comfortable, not noisy even though beside kitchen. Breakfast was tasty and filling. A friendly fat cat roams about so keep that in mind if you're allergic etc. Overall a very pleasant stay with friendly staff in a lovely, quiet area. Would return for skiing.

Thank you for your kind words. The wine and cheese social to which you referred is very popular as you probably noted from the size of the gathering. It makes for a great opportunity to meet the other guests who are lucky enough to discover our lovely little inn. Next time you're in America stop by and say hello.

We booked a room for an amazing price for Columbus Day weekend and we only had to book for one night, unlike pretty much everywhere else! We only wish that a few tiny things were different - our hairdryer didn't work, but a replacement was provided and there wasn't a pack and play for our infant. We brought one just in case. But everyone was so nice and they even upgraded our room for free. There were snacks in the afternoon provided by the sweet innkeepers who live there. We will most definately be going back!!!

Room Tip: If your type of room isn't available, call and ask. That's how we got our larger bed!

Thank you for taking time to leave such nice words. I'm particularly gratified that I was described as "sweet" a fact I will promptly remind my boss/wife. We hope you took the opportunity eat breakfast on the deck where the views are just spectacular. Please come back and stay with us again.

We stayed in the Silver Fox Inn for 2 nights in August and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel was charming, particularly the lounge area and we loved the complimentary wine and cheese. Breakfast was varied and of a good standard. The location was beautiful with lots of activities to do. We'd love to visit again during the ski season!

Stayed here and went back in time....looks like nothing has been updated since about 1990....and that was just the age of the zenith tv in our room. Then you have to go way way back to about 1970 to catch the rest of the carpet, curtains, fixtures etc. First...the rooms were inexpensive and they came with a breakfast, and even wine/cheese in the late afternoon. The rooms were clean.....so that gave another star, but that is where it ended. We heard pipes and drains making noise a lot during the night and early in the morning and we actually woke up to it at about 5 a.m., and that was with earplugs. This sort of destroyed any further positive vibe I had and flat out ruined my attitude...... Will not go back.

Thanks for your comments regarding your recent stay at the Best Western Silver Fox Inn. We are redoing all of our rooms and should have them done in a couple months. New Carpet, Draps, Furniture, Flat Screen TV's and painting. We have over half the rooms done at this point and should have all done in shortly. Thanks for the comments. Next time in WV please give us another try ... Tks Tor Brunvand - Owner

We arrived about 3 hours early and since our room was still being cleaned we headed out for lunch nearby. It's within walking distance. Most of the restaurants were not open for lunch but we did find a sandwich place upstairs. It seems to be the downseason between summer and winter time. Then we headed back to our hotel and got checked in. We had a king size bed and I didn't notice until my husband checked out the bathroom that we were in a "handicap room" because of the number of rails in the bathtub walls. There is a free wine and cheese reception from 4 to 5:30 which is free and met some people from PEI, Holland and Manhatten. What a great idea!
Breakfast each morning was buffet and lots to choose from. We ate supper at the Coyote Grill and it was excellent and great service too. Beautifully surrounded by the Green Mountain view and large windows.

Thank you for the kind words. You point out one of the outstanding features of our inn, it's location. Restaurants and shopping, all located in the Town Square, are just a short stroll down a beautiful path and along the creek. If you're not completely relaxed when you arrive, your first stroll to town will get the job done. Please come back and visit us again.

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.
