Snowy Owl Inn
Reviewed 7 August 2017

We have stayed at the Snowy Owl during ski season, but loved it in the summer! We had a spacious room with a jacuzzi- great after our hiking in the mountains. It's a perfect place for families. It was also great to walk to activities and dinner in the village and not have to get in a car!

Room Tip: Mountain (front) view great but busier, river view (back) is tree-lined and quieter

I'm shocked that anyone would give this place more than one star. Between the run down condition of the facility, the surly fan desk staff, the strange mostly empty and lord knows how old the food is vending machines...it's amazing the board of health hasn't condemned this place. It seems as though it had a great run back in the 70s and 80s, but trust me when I say that NOTHING has been done to improve or modernize this place. It is sad, really. Please please please do yourself a favor and stay away.

Hello, I want to share with you our favorite inn in the white mountains. If you have a family and are looking for a place to stay that can comfortably sleep 7, you will not find a more affordable inn. The atmosphere reflects what I consider Waterville Valley. Summer or winter, we have always enjoyed our stay. In particular, My wife and I enjoy the many quiet places in the inn to get away and relax. There are some great hikes in the area, not to mention the shops and restaurants, all a short walk next to the small river that runs out back.

This place is a colossal dump. The 1980's ski house kitsch lasts about 20 minutes and then you notice that you are the one who should be paid for staying here. Is anyone going to vacuum? Does anyone work here? Hello? The cereal and the contact lens case on the floor from the previous guest along with the dents in the wall just add to the ambiance. I wish there was a hot tub time machine if only to get me out of here.

Very nice location and great views. The bed was comfortable and room was clean. Walking distance to some good restaurants, shopping and pubs. Bikes can be hired and lovely trails to bike through. Lot of play areas around for the kids.
