My husband & I hadn't stayed in a B&B for years, shying away as we often felt smothered, rooms were too cutesy, etc. We were traveling to Abingdon specifically to bike the Virginia Creeper Rails-to-Trails and decided to take a chance on the White Birches Inn. Our gamble was rewarded a hundred fold! Mike & Paulette are the perfect inn... More

Stayed one night on the way to a wedding in Fredericksburg. ( This is about 1/2 way from Georgia). The innkeepers graciously greeted us, showed us to our room and to the wine and the back porch overlooking a beautiful garden (redbud and dogwood trees in bloom) with a Koi pond. They provided a map and good directions to downtown... More

Folks, this is the real deal. If you want to have a beautiful wedding ceremony for a small price in a luxurious venue, The White Birch B&B is the place. Outstanding service from arrival to departure. The innkeepers do a fantastic job taking care of the wedding traditions. Our package included chocolate covered strawberries, an impressive cheese tray, dozen red... More

We decided to elope and it was the best decision ever. Paulette and Mike were so great and accommodating. They have an elopement package and some add-ons. Mike performed the ceremony while Paulette videoed the ceremony. Paulette took more pictures around their beautiful B&B including the traditional cake eating. They didn't forget much of anything and they were very open... More

If you've ever had a bad experience at a Bed & Breakfast, visit White Birches Inn! We had such a wonderful time. Paulette and Michael met us at the door when we arrived. Our room was very clean and comfortable. There is a gas fireplace in each bedroom, and we had ours on every time we were in the room... More

My comments echo Billy O's. We just spent 4 nights at the White Birches Inn & were very pleased. The entire feeling of the inn was one of quaint, old world charm. An extra plus was access to complementary beverages in the guest mini-frig & evening wine. Our thanks to Paulette & Mike for a memorable stay.

Paulette and Michael were wonderful -- very warm and accommodating. They spent quality time with everyone in the Inn while not being too present. Paulette provided a superior review of Abingdon that allowed us to take advantage of everything the town had to offer. The property was beautiful -- great back porch -- and the rooms were lovely and wonderfully... More

The 8/19/12 review sums it up. Nothing has changed. Within 15 minutes of arriving, Paulette began vocalizing her liberal political beliefs. Although the home is very nice, there are way too many shortcomings. We were served the same "McDonalds" potato cake, the same french toast that others have mentioned. The servings were indeed meager-especially when many visitors are either hiking... More

This is a late response to the above review, as we have been away from the Inn for a few weeks. We remember this couple very well because of our first 15 minutes of conversation upon their arrival. Normally, when guests arrive, we show them around, go over a map, show them their room, get them registered, talk about the... More

Nothing wrong with this inn. It is within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and the Barter Theater. Our room was spacious and clean. Cookies, soda, beer and wine with the room don't hurt either. Breakfast was very good. My only complaint is that another towel bar is needed in the bathroom.
