“Pat and Kerry - Innkeepers Extraordinaire!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

We had a wonderful three-night stay this August with Pat and Kerry. They were the most hospitable innkeepers we have ever met. From the moment we arrived, they made us feel at home with their warm personalities. We were incredibly pleased with our room (Whitney View): it was immaculately clean with charming (new) furnishing and a very, very comfortable bed (the entire house is wonderfully restored). After restful nights, we came down to our breakfast table where Pat lit candles, bringing a little romance to the morning. Then came tasty fruit cups topped with yummy sorbets or ice cream followed by Kerry’s delicious breakfasts. We enjoyed eggs in a nest, lemon ricotta pancakes, and stuffed croissants during our three day stay. At night we returned to our rooms to find turn-down service and chocolates on our nightstand. Encountering this level of thoughtfulness would have been enough for me on this visit, but we happened to be staying with Pat and Kerry during Hurricane Irene. After venturing out that morning to see what was open, and finding nothing, we returned ready to make the best of a veggie platter and a block of cheese for dinner. Instead, Pat and Kerry invited us to a cookout, knowing that restaurants were closed due to the storm. They literally invited us into their home, opening their quarters to us. After dinner we relaxed in their living room, as if we were at an aunt and uncle’s for family dinner, sharing stories and laughs before heading up to bed. We can’t thank them enough for making us such welcomed guests!

My husband and I spent this past Sunday night (10/23) at the Whitney House Inn, and this beautifully restored B&B did not disappoint! The owners, Kerry and Pat, went out of their way to make our stay special. They made a fire for us to enjoy in the downstairs living room when we returned from our dinner out, along with a bottle of chilled champagne for our anniversary. They were never intrusive, and generous to a fault. When I realized I didn't have cell service, Pat gave me her phone and insisted I give our babysitter the phone number so we could be reached at any time! The best part is the tray they leave outside of your bedroom door at 7am, with coffee and muffins. They don't wake you, they just tell you the night before that it will be there. My husband and I enjoyed coffee in bed and then went down for a delicious, candle-lit breakfast (in our pj's) of baked bananas, lemon-ricotta pancakes, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, juice and coffee. By the time we said our good-byes (with hugs all around!) we knew this place was a keeper. I can't wait to go back In December and see it decorated for Christmas and do some shopping in Manchester! Absolutely lovely!!

Room Tip: The room called "Whitney's View" is a little bit bigger than the other 2. We loved it!

We spent three nights at the Whitney House in late September 2011 and couldn't recommend it more highly. Patricia and Kerry made us feel very welcome. Their love for the Inn was evident in all the personal touches and effort that they put into every aspect of our stay.

Our room was immaculate, the beds were large and very comfortable. There was a communal refrigerator in the main entrance of the Inn that was very convenient. Tea, coffee and muffins were served at 7 on the dot every morning. This was followed by a more substantial breakfast in the large main room. For us, each breakfast was different, but equally delicious.

Moreover, Arlington is a perfectly located town. It was our first visit to Vermont and it didn't disappoint. There are an abundance of great drives and hikes within minutes of the Whitney, and Patricia and Kerry were very helpful in terms of directions and suggestions. With their help we found a number of great local delights that we may otherwise have missed, such as Jonathon's Table, which was excellent.

We'd definitely go back!

We absolutely loved every minute of our unplanned, but especially delightful stay at the White House Inn! The home baked morning extras, those divine lemon ricotta pancakes (dying to have that recipe!) for breakfast and the genuine, warm & welcoming hospitality we received, will bring us back for another visit. We will be recommending Whitney House Inn to family & friends! P.S. Make sure you go to Jonathon's Table for dinner!

We stayed at the Whitney House Inn for 2 nights recently. We were warmly greeted by Kerry and Pat the owners, who have made the inn a very warm and comfortable place to stay. The rooms were spacious, impecably clean, and decorated in a nice style that befits the age of the inn. The beds were comfortable and the shower was great. Both Kerry and Pat were very accommodating in obtaining map directions for us and in giving us recommendations for very good restaurants. Our only regret was that there wasn't a television or radio available, so that we could get the results of the Red Sox game. In spite of this we would definitely stay again with Kerry and Pat.

All the reviews asre correct. This is a wonderful place and Pat and Kerry are gracious and friendly. Breakfasts were awesome esp the lemon ricotta panckaes. They even put a candle in the fruit salad and sang happy birthday to my husband. Charming and very reasonable prices. NB they only have 3 guestrooms and often take the overflow from weddings so book early.

Room Tip: Ask for the green room. It's the largest.

For all the reasons Norman Rockwell may have fallen in Love with Arlington Vermont we have one, The Whitney House Inn the home of Pat and Kerry Meade. Welcome is not just letters forming a word on a door mat but from the moment you are greeted at the door you are home. That is what you will experience when you stay at the Whitney House Inn and after two days it is like visiting family. Their home is a wonderful example of a Victorian / Colonial style which Pat has decorated so beautifully in a country theme and the Inn is absolutely immaculate in both the common areas and guest rooms. The Inn has windows throughout revealing beautiful views of the Vermont countryside and surrounding the mountains.
The guest rooms are warm, comfortable and tastefully decorated and where in most Inns you would normally spend more time in your room Pat and Kerry have created an atmosphere where you move freely through the house as if you were in your own home. The Great room is a place to sit and relax as you enjoy a warm fire in the evening or a wonderful breakfast that Kerry prepares each morning.

Open the door to your room at 7am and like magic a carafe of coffee and freshly made muffins are waiting to welcome you to a new day. What was amazing is you never hear Kerry outside your door as he leaves this tray every morning almost like Santa Claus placing gifts beneath a Christmas Tree.

The only part of our stay which I regret was when we had to say good bye to the our wonderful Innkeepers and their beautiful home.

Pat and Kerry have done such a wonderful job of creating a Bed & Breakfast experience that absolutely captures the true essence of Vermont and the hospitality that one can only find in their own home.
