An inn in the White Mountains changed hands last week.
The Silver Fox Inn was recently acquired by the Waterville Valley Resort. Formerly a Best Western, the 32-room hotel had been operated by Tor and Susan Brunvand.
Waterville Valley Resort announced the acquisition of the Silver Fox last week. The purchase price was not disclosed.
“This is an exciting opportunity for us to expand our portfolio, and we are especially grateful to the Brunvands for their many years of service to the Waterville Valley community,” said Tim Smith, the resort’s president and general manager, in a statement.
Matt Hesser, the resort’s director of marketing and sales, hailed the Brunvands in their retirement.
“Their longtime dedication to their product has generated an incredible reputation,” he said.
“They have been a great help in the transition, and we are looking forward to continuing their high standards of service.”
The Silver Fox, according to the Waterville Valley Resort, will offer a lodging level that is in between its two- and three-bedroom, fully equipped Town Square Condominiums and the budget Snow Star Inn.
The Silver Fox Inn is located next to the resort’s conference and event center.
Both are a short walk from Corcoran Pond and the shops, restaurants and ice rink at Town Square.
The Silver Fox Inn will continue the hot breakfasts and afternoon wine-and-cheese welcome receptions for which the Brunvands were famous.
