You couldn't ask for a better location to explore Keji. The host were very nice and helpful , providing bag lunches and accommodating breakfast requests. The rooms are quite small and basic not much in the way of amenities and WiFi not great. However, for the price and location was worth the trade off.

We have stayed at the Whitman Inn several times while visiting Keji Park. If you are not into camping and you want to explore Keji this is a quiet, charming, restful way to do it as the park is only 4 km away. The hosts Monika & Herbert are friendly and accommodating. We found the meals to be good, especially... More

From the exterior the Whitman is a place to love. Lovely porch to sit on with a late afternoon refreshment. Inside the rooms are bit below what we've experienced in other B&Bs. Rooms are comfortable and clean but no amenities -- like a sitting chair or a place to but your luggage. Wi-fi is very iffy.The owner (who is very... More

The Whitman Inn is very conveniently located near Keji and definitely a good choice. Monika was a very kind host and always happy to help. Both breakfast and dinner (which are not included in the room rate) were yummy, and the rooms are simple, but nicely decorated. The wifi did not work in our room, but we had good access... More

Monika of the Whitman Inn is very hospitable, even came out and brought your luggage to your room, very accommodating when my husband was unable to go up the stairs and let us stay in the honeymoon suite. She goes out of her way to make your stay a very pleasant and relaxing . The room had no tv, which... More

The location is excellent for Keji and the Inn keepers are very friendly and really helpful. The food was excellent - there was little choice but what there was was very well cooked. We had schnizel with potatoes and Blueberry pancakes for breakfast. Downside - The Inn is a little tired and run down, the rooms are small but very... More

Pretty setting. Pretty grounds. Nice looking house/inn. Monika, the owner is very sweet and accomodating. Expect no wifi. Ugh. You have to tour the substantial grounds to find a link with something "out there" which is not very satisfactory if you plan to watch anything on your ipad in the evening in your room or get your emails forget it....

We stayed here and chose the "Romance Room" for the awesome bathroom with Jacuzzi tub which was just what we needed after a long day out on the bike. The owners were great about last minute reservations and a late check in. Lots of surprising touches in the décor both inside and out made this a fun place to kick... More

It is exactly 3km from the Inn to the entrance of Keji Park. We enjoyed staying there and getting to know Monica. The hiking and stargazing in the park is amazing. I also went for an early morning run there, with the rivers steaming in the morning sun, just perfect. There are many rooms in the Inn and they all... More
