My wife, two-year-old daughter and I stayed here a week ago (August 2013). Marlene took such great care of us. We really wish we could have stayed longer (our daughter especially!). We stayed in the Safari room, which like the all the rooms, has a wonderful view of the lake. In the morning, Marlene made a lovely breakfast for us,... More

If you want a great bed and breakfast stay at the Whitehouse! This was the first time we ever stayed at a bed and breakfast, we are now spoiled. This beautiful house is located right on Long Lake. From the time you get there Marlene makes you feel so welcome. We stayed in the First Lady suite, it is much... More

Great, quiet, hilly residential location on the lake. I felt well taken care of and like I was visiting family where the house and furniture are a bit dated and there may be dust in the corners but everything still works. The Presidential Suite is like a house by itself with a full kitchen, bedroom, living room, balcony and separate... More

To me, authenticity without pretension usually scores very high. This place is an exception. The White House has fake collonades, rooms named such things as the Presidential Suite and First Lady Suite. In fact, the whole B&B plays like a musical riff on the Washington, DC icon. But this thematic element really is just a backdrop, and does nothing to... More

Lovely B&B overlooking lake, Unfortunately the weather was too cool to take advantage of sitting beside the lake on the lakefront patio or use of the paddle boat. Room was tastefully decorated and very clean with a charming African theme. Breakfast was hot and very tasty as the proprietor is a good cook. Pleasant stay and affordable. I would

It takes a long time to get from Tennessee to Vancouver Island. Marlene's cheerful greeting made thoughts of that grueling fourteen hours disappear. There is always a moment of hesitation when booking a B&B. Without equivocation, The Whitehouse lives up to the photographs. The dock is a perfect place to spend many hours with a book. Active types will find... More

We stayed at the Whitehouse on our way across Vancouver Island. The property is amazing, and there is lots to do! We especially enjoyed relaxing on the large floating deck's patio furniture, watching the sun set on the lake. The room was large and clean and had all the amenities we needed. Marlene was incredibly sweet and very knowledgable; she... More

With flowers everywhere and a pretty view of the lake from the room, the dock and the hot tub, you can't help but decompress here. Maureen, the owner, is kind and thoughtful as well as knowledgeable about the area. We expected that the Whitehouse would be in a remote area surrounded by woods or green rolling hills, and it's not... More

We are Vancouver Island residents and needed to find a hotel or B&B to put up some visitors to the Nanaimo area. We chose the White House by location on the lake and after talking to Marlene on the phone but basically sight-unseen. What a lucky choice! Marlene was the perfect B&B host and went out of her way to... More
