This is a great place to relax. The place is spotless and the staff are very friendly. Ed is so accommodating. Been going there for the last 7 years. The breakfast is fantastic everyday. Going back again this summer.

Found this place on trip advisor and chose it due to it's reviews. Have to agree the staff was friendly, location was excellent, room was nice and breakfast was great! The owner offered to make us something to go as we had to leave well before breakfast the second day, thought that was very nice.

Don’t miss breakfast. We slept in our first morning and regretted it the next day when we found out how fantastic the breakfast is. Our experience has been mixed with B&Bs. Some B&Bs have a nice breakfast and some B&Bs have a very sparse breakfast. The breakfast here is outstanding. Tables are set beautifully, the food was delicious and the...

Historic property just a short walk to the village center and Baseball Hall of Fame. Excellent breakfast selections, not just ordinary bacon and eggs. TV in bedrooms for those who require a daily TV fix. Free off-street parking.

Hi, What can I say about this Inn? I would give it 5 stars for customer service ( changing pre-paid reservation was very easy ). It has a 5 star location: 1 block to the downtown with easy parking!

I loved my room, the Birch Room, with its own separate sitting room and library during my stay at the White House Inn, while attending the Glimmerglass Festival. Arriving late at night, mine host, Ed Landers, had kindly arranged for signs to show me to my room on the ground floor! Next morning, he was the first to greet me...

This inn was built in 1835 and retains a warmth and charm the is the result of the level of detail in every room. From check in by Josh, with tips on what was available for dinner options, to the outstanding breakfast supervised by the owner, Ed, the whole stay was perfect. Several comfortable common rooms for guests to meet....

Location is excellent for everything downtown. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and the breakfast was enjoyable too. We would stay here again. No complaints. Several common areas to talk with other people and off street parking.
