“Great Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Overall we had a great stay at the Silver Fox Inn for two nights over New Years. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. We very much enjoyed the afternoon wine & cheese and the warm and tasty breakfasts in the morning. Our family of five took advantage of both lounging areas. We especially enjoyed taking in the beautiful mountain views in the main sitting area. We will definitely be back next year!

Thank you. The views from our beautiful lodge style great room are quite wonderful. I don't know if the weather permitted, but eating outside on the deck affords a breathtaking backdrop for that wonderful breakfast you mentioned. Please come visit us again.

We enjoyed our stay here at the Silver Fox inn. The staff was friendly and helpful to our needs. The beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed the continental breakfast that they served. The hotel was in walking distance to the Town Square that served our other needs for dinner plans and other accommodations that we needed. I would definitely stay at here again.

First, you pull up and this looks like a quaint bed and breakfast, no a chain hotel and it stood true to that through and through. In this non-commercialized village this is not your typical Best Western.

The nicest touch was the the wine, cheese, cider, eggnog, and other snacks by the fireplace between 4-6. That made up for anything lacking and made the entire stay there worth it. Those mometns of peace and serenity with snow falling, fire crackling and kids playing games and enjoying the non-rushed moments were priceless.

The location is outstanding. You can easily walk to the village or the rec center. There is a shuttle but at non-prime time it comes very infrequently and there is no set schedule. So, you could standing outside in the freezing cold for quite awhile. I suggest to walk. The staff is very nice and helpful, especially Alex at the desk in the evening who gave us great advice and recommendations where to go, eat, play, etc.

The room was decent size. We prefer one bed and sleep couch with our two young children, but that option was not available. We also like to have a refrigerator for milk and snacks but that also was not an option.

I never made it to the breakfast, It went from 7-9 a.m.9 a.m. is early to me to end breakfast when you are on vacation and may want to stay in your pj's and relax in the a.m.

My children, especially my son, sleep very late in the a.m. and we usually miss housekeeping. In most places they leave extra towels outside the door and/or call and say the privacy sign was up and do we need anything. Not here. Also, our do not disturb sign was up and there was early morning vacuuming outside our door. Again, my kids sleep late, but this was between 930 and 10 which is not that late on vacation and you would think if you see the do not disturb sign maybe you could vacuum somewhere else first and come back later.

If returning to Waterville Valley I would definitely consider the Silver Fox again. It is a pleasant stay and getaway, but probably more suited to a couple or a family with older children.

Room Tip: This is an inn so there are not a lot of options on rooms. Maybe one away from common areas if you...

Thank you. I apologize about the vacuum outside the door. The do not disturb means don't bother us but we do need to keep common areas spic and span. In your case I see that was a bit of a problem. So sorry. I'm really sorry you missed breakfast which is the best in the valley. In fact, I think we are the only property that provides a wonderful, hot breakfast every day. Next time you visit make a point of trying it once. My wife is a former chef and her touch on breakfast makes sets it well above the typical hotel free breakfast. I hope we have a chance to serve you again.

That was our second time in the hotel. We loved it last year, and loved it this time. Very pleasant, nicely decorated, fireplaces. It has that B&B homey feel to it. We also loved the 4pm cheese and wine reception. The staff is very friendly and make you feel welcomed. We like the cross-country skiing there. One of the best places to ski. The forest is beautiful and there is something to do for all different level skiers. The sport bar is a convenient place to have lunch. The coyote grill is a nice place to have dinner.

Thank you so much for your nice comments. I'm glad you had good snow. Good call on the dining suggestions too. There are a number of other great places to eat in the valley as well. We'll see you next year.

Great place to stay, clean and cozy. Good value for all that the hotel offers. The rooms are basic but adequate size and the heating worked fine. The bathroom was updated.The breakfast is fantastic and we really enjoyed coming back from skiing to the wine and cheese.

Nice affordable bed and breakfast for ski vacation with a central location. They have a decent breakfast and after ski cheese snacks - providing good value. The rooms are clean and comfortable. They have free wifi and a shuttle bus that brings you up to Waterville Valley mountain so you don't have to wait in line. We visited during a busy holiday weekend and the whole resort seemed a little bit overwhelmed with the volume and the staff was all new so they didn't know when anything was open or have good recommendations of where to eat dinner, etc. I recommend the Wild Coyote Grill for dinner and you can walk there. Also, for $20 extra, pick up a freedom pass for everyone in the room to use the pool down the road or the ice rink in town.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. And thank you, as well, for pointing out what a great deal the freedom pass. Depending on the season it also entitles you to a whole host of other activities including: indoor tennis, climbing wall, various town recreation programs, ice skating, 9 holes of golf daily, 2 hrs. free bike rental, 2 hours boat rental and more. It's the best $20 you'll spend o vacation. And the pass is good for as many days as you stay...all for $20.

We only stayed for one night, but our room was neat and clean. Wi-Fi Internet service was excellent and the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the breakfast, which was great, and the awesome view of the White Mountains in the dinner room where breakfast was. This hotel is definitely recommended.

Thank you! Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and shared with others what a great stay the Silver Fox Inn is. The location is beautiful and because we are a small, family operated hotel we take great pride in knowing that our guests leave us feeling like they've stayed with friends rather than a hotel. Please come again.
