Although we live fairly close to Whitehall, it was wonderful to explore the area "close-up" from the convenient location of the White Swan Inn. Our accommodations were wonderful and hosts Cathy and Ron made us feel right at home -- not to mention fed us wonderful breakfasts! Though our primary focus was kayaking the White River, we also thoroughly enjoyed... More

My husband and I just returned from an AMAZING weekend at the White Swan Inn. The accommodations were lovely. Beautifully appointed rooms, super comfortable bed, and fresh cookies and tea available at all times right outside our bedroom door. The breakfasts were FANTASTIC, and Kathy served them whenever it was most convenient for us. The Inn is RIGHT next to... More

Stayed here for the weekend in the summer while our daughter was at Blue Lake summer camp. Very welcoming inn keepers and Cathy makes delicious breakfasts. The room was very comfortable and felt like home. Good distance to downtown Whitehall, beautiful Lake Michigan and White Lake. Also, breakfast at "The Dive" is an option not far from here. For 4th...

We stayed at the White Swan Inn on a Sun. and Mon. evening in February for a midwinter break. It was extremely cold outside, but warm and cozy inside thanks to the electric fireplaces and the hot drink dispenser in the hallway that was available 24-7. Cathy and Ron were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were excellent and Cathy... More

White Swan Inn is a elegant and relaxing place to spend the night on Lake Michigan's eastern shore, made even more incredible by the reasonable rates. Cathy & Ron were very courteous and welcoming, our late arrival was no problem for them, and breakfast was very good.

We stayed at their White Swan Cottage for 3 weeks in October 2014 and were extremely pleased wtih the accommodations. The cottage was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed for our long vacation. Only a couple blocks off the rail trail and a short walk to downtown, the location was perfect for us. The fenced in back... More

Stayed at the White Swan Inn this past weekend on our way up to Glen Arbor. We got in around 10:30pm and was still given a nice warm welcome. We were given a short tour of the house and the different amenities offered (One cup coffee maker in the hallway for anytime access and a WIDE variety of coffee/tea options).... More

Overall, the White Swan was a good place to stay and I would recommend it. We stayed in the Jasmine room and it was very nice. The room was clean and spacious, the bed linens were luxurious, and the sink in the room had a lot of counter space. The ceiling fan allowed for good air flow. The window AC... More

The White Swan was our very first B & B experience and boy oh boy, was it worth it! Our stay was beyond our best expectations. We were there two wonderful, relaxing nights. We had a late check-in the first night, which was not a problem. Kathy & Ron, were accommodating, friendly and made their home feel like our home... More

We stayed here for one night and were treated to a spacious, beautiful, comfortable bedroom and bathroom. The hosts are friendly, helpful, and welcoming and also very knowledgeable about the area and things to do. We will definitely stay here again.
