Friend and I were exhausted and we did an online search and found the Snow Owl Inn with a few miles of Mt Tecumseh. We were exhausted and their rates were reasonable. The room and Inn was clean and neat. They wered a continental breakfast the next day. Thereafter we left to climb another 4,000 footer, Mt Osceola. Two 4,000... More

We stayed at the Snowy Owl for the second time this past July 2016. We came with a group tour for the Nascar races. The staff at this hotel is phenomenal. Very caring and ready to help in any way possible. This is an older ski lodge that oozes with charm. We love it, and this bus tour has been... More

This hotel is right next door to the "town" of Waterville Valley, has free parking and was rather clean. It is very dated. The bathroom is strange, with a window opening to the bedroom. The bedding was acceptable. Many long dark hallways. One can only exit or enter at the front desk, therefore the rooms are a bit noisy with... More

Recently we went back to the Snowy Owl Inn for one night. We had been going there off and on for many years and had always enjoyed the amenities. We had not been back in a couple of years, so decided to go back up to enjoy the beautiful foliage. We were very disappointed. The room was comfortable enough, clean... More

Thank you for helping us out. We had booked a condo with air bb and what a disaster. We were in the area for a wedding need a last minute change of arrangements. I called the Snowy Owl and they had a room for us. Was comfortable and clean.

Have been coming here for well over 30 years, simply a wonderful, quaint and country place to stay. Many things do do in the Valley Square, great place to come and relax in a clean and comfortable setting.

When we arrived, prior to dinner, there was no-one at the front desk. Instead they left paperwork and keys. The hotel was mostly dark, with few occupants the first night. There was no map of the hotel so we had a hard time finding the indoor pool. When found, it was too cold to use. We never fond the sauna... More

Stayed here because my favorite hotel in Waterville was booked. This hotel is clean and next to the downtown. I'm giving this review a two because the hotel is very dated, lumpy mattress, old style TV, poor lighting. I'm sure for families traveling with kids that just want a place to sleep it may be ok.

Great location right near the village and eating places not too far away. Plenty of trails and activities around. The room was clean and pleasant. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The A/C unit in our room kept shutting off and not working properly. Had to open the window and use the fan instead to cool it down at night. If... More

I chose the Snowy Owl Inn as the venue for my wedding reception; and I was not disappointed. The staff at the Snowy Owl were amazing!! They were all so friendly and accommodating.
