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 room (prior reservation) which faced (you guessed it) Park Avenue. In addition to a full, private bathroom, Cameo had lots of space, with several tables and chairs and plenty left over for our suitcases and travel clothes too. Breakfast was made to order - very tasty and plenty of it, a special herby egg kiche as we recall. On our forthcoming trips from Minnesota to Indiana, the White House will become a regular stop for us.
