My Husband and I took our two nephews for the weekend to the mountains. The loft room provided more than enough space, allowed the boys private sleeping area, the breakfast was amazing, the indoor pool was perfect (stop sign shaped 4ft around the perimeter and 5ft at the center). Finally the price was perfect, much less than I would have...

This is an average, basic hotel. It is not fancy, but rather a rustic New England ski lodge. I find the lobby to be charming and cozy. I go to Waterville Valley to walk, hike and spend time outdoors. This hotel is perfect for that life style. It is comfortable enough and the staff are friendly. The rooms may be...

We travel once a year to Waterville Valley and always check the Snowy Owl website first. By booking in advance and paying up front you can get some really great rates. The hotel rooms are comfortable but basic. As other reviewers have mentioned the TV's are old, the towels are a bit scratchy and the continental breakfast is minimal. But...

We stayed in kitchenette suite, Check-in and check-out is easy, free wi-fi, conveniently located next to town square that is the only advantage. You carry your own vacuum cleaner, brushes to clean sink because they don't clean or vacuum, if u leave anything in kitchen sink other hotels house cleaning will clean everything, these guys forget kitchen didn't even clean...

We have stayed at the Snowy Owl Inn many times and are always very pleased. This time we upgraded to a room with a king size bed and it was very comfortable, It is not luxury but that's not what we are looking for. We were only there for one night and the room worked fine. The surprise was the...

We stayed here for a conference that was held in the same building. The rooms were comfortable, while small. I had a hard time finding coffee in the morning which was distressing but the cook in the kitchen gave me some. The conference was held downstairs and to be honest I felt it was really tight quarters. The noise in...

My husband, age 79 and I, 69, made reservations on Expedia for 2 nights in June to attend a family reunion in Tamworth. Expedia claimed the hotel was 12 miles from Tamworth. Policy stated reservations were non-refundable, but this didn't appear to be a problem, place looked good, and close enough that we wouldn't have to drive after dark, as...

The Hotel website draws a great image of the hotel, however, reality is quite different. The hotel is outdated, service is quite low, reception personnel is bored, rooms are smelly, beds are uncomfortable and no window curtains (just flimsy and very cheap venitian "blinds" that are so thin that by 5 o'clock the room is very bright). When we checked...

My wife and I had an awful time finding a place to stay during this past motorcycle weekend at Laconia (June 2014). We were blessed to have found one of the best for a decent price. Some on this site have quoted that the look is dated - from the outside, that may be true. However, on the inside we...

Yes, the Inn is a bit outdated but you can't beat the location and price. Reception was very friendly and even offered us a room upgrade! Everything was very clean and quiet, even though there were a few bus loads of groups visiting. We were able to park the car and then enjoy many trails in the area as well...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Snowy Owl Inn is considered one of New England's finest country inns. Set in the heart of Waterville Valley and the White Mountain National Forest, our all-season 82 room inn offers a relaxing vacation, a great family getaway. It's also the perfect place for business meetings, seminars, conferences, reunions, weddings and celebrations. In the winter enjoy alpine and cross country skiing along with snowshoeing, tubing and even sleigh rides! In the summer we are just as busy with paddleboats, beach on Corcorans Pond, hiking, golf, tennis and even a chairlift ride up Snow's Mountain. Be as busy as you want to be. ... more   less
