We had a great stay in the wonderful Cottage Retreat at the White House. It really felt like a retreat with the large whirlpool tub, thick robes, super comfy bed and relaxing atmosphere. This B&B gets top marks in all areas: The hosts are very accommodating, the place is spotless and has been lovingly cared for. It's quiet with a... More

I enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the delightful company of owners Fred and Sally. Convenient location off of I65 in homey Rensselaer, Indiana. Victorian decorations are beautiful yet functional. Rooms are private and no expence was spared to make them comfortable. Worth a visit.

We had a wonderful experience staying at The White House B&B in my home town of Rensselaer, IN, while we were there for a family wedding. I'd walked by the B&B countless times growing up and since moving to Arizona and finally had the opportunity to stay there. The late 1800's house and the guest rooms are beautifully furnished with...

This is a lovely B&B in the small community of Rensselaer, IN. The hosts have taken care of your every need before you even realize it. The decor of all the rooms (we've stayed in 2) have a Victorian elegance and are just beautiful and spacious, with all the modern updates required in the 21st century. The breakfasts are simply...

Visited my hometown in Rensselaer and stayed at this wonderful inn again. The hosts, Fred and Sally are wonderful inn owners - with great memories - they recalled the ages of my sons from the first visit we stayed in 2010. Peace, quiet and a wonderful gourmet breakfast are what awaits you if you choose this great B&B. Cookies and... More

Rensselaer is my hometown and this is such lovely place to stay when returning. Our most recent visit was a few weeks ago and the quality was as top notch as ever. Wonderful bedroom, great bathroom, delicious breakfast, gracious hosts. And interesting conversation at the breakfast table to boot.

Sally and Fred are gracious hosts. They knew our names when we arrived and we had a nice conversation and tour upon our arrival. We pre-ordered the cheese tray which was very welcome to these hungry travelers. Breakfast was incredibly delicious: yogurt with bananas and pecans; mountaintop bacon; orange french toast. Sally is especially sensitive to those with allergies/special food... More

Found a great house with superior rooms and a great breakfast. This is a nice place for a romantic getaway. We stayed in the rose room. We ate at the city pub restaurant in town and enjoyed the prime rib and perch.

The White House is every bit as spiffy on the inside as it is outside. We entered the former Kannal mansion and stepped back to the glory days of the late 1890s. It is a huge house with an unusually well laid-out floor plan. Sally greeted us at the door and made us feel welcome immediately. We selected the Cameo... More

Was in town for what was supposed to be only one night, but breakdowns turned it into two nights. Sally took us in without reservations at the last minute and made us all feel right at home. This is a stunningly beautiful old home filled with antiques and surprisingly, each bedroom has it's own bathroom. Breakfast was elegant (especially the... More
