We stumbled upon this place just looking for a long weekend getaway and all I can say is it was a very happy accident. We were looking for a nice place to unwind on our anniversary weekend and this was exactly what the doctor ordered. The Inn is just stunning from the outside . The Inn is perched on a... More

From the moment we walked into the White House Inn we were impressed. Every staff member went out of their way to be friendly and welcoming. Room 5 was beautiful, complete with a very comfortable king bed and a brand new bathroom. We were fortunate to see the hidden stairway and get to check out the gorgeous new wine cellar... More

This charming hilltop inn was the perfect backdrop for a wedding we photographed last year. The couple was married in the flower garden out back and the reception was held throughout the ground level. Cocktail hour, held on the patio, overlooked the town below. The bridal suite was cozy, complete with French doors that let out on to the second... More

Three of us ate here at the end of MLK weekend. We started with drinks and snacks in the sunken bar. The margaritas were perfection. Jack is a very professional bartender who will happily make you whatever you want and do it well. The deviled eggs are crave worthy. We then moved to the dining room. We ordered the 64... More

The Inn has recently been purchased by The Hermitage Club and appears to be in the renovation process which is good, because it needs it! The room was nice and the bathroom updated but . . . the tile work was shabby with grout spatters, the hardwood florrs need to be cleaned and refinished. The Inn smelled old and musty,... More

Thank you for staying with us at The White House recently. You’re absolutely right, the Inn was in desperate need of some TLC, and boy is it going to get it! The good news is that what you saw was just phase 1 which we are finalizing now. In phase 2, starting soon, the entire basement level is undergoing a... More

Love coming here for dinner. I sit at the beautiful bar looking out over the Valley. For some reason, every time I come, I have a wonderful conversation with fellow diners! I think it is the intimate atmosphere of the bar and the fact that there isn't a television playing. On a cold snowy night they have the wood stove... More

Oh my god --trying to make a reservation at the White House restaurant was a nightmare. First we hear a recording that "you've reached the Hermitage properties, your call is important to us"--then on hold listening to music for 20 minutes--"you are caller number 5"---then finally switched to an answering machine to leave a message!!! Can't believe that these guys... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The White House is a Victorian mansion offering you elegant yet relaxed surroundings in Southern Vermont located near the Mount Snow Resort. Set on the crest of a high, rolling hill, and surrounded by towering hardwoods and formal flower gardens, it is readily obvious why the Boston Herald and New York Times selected the White House Inn as "one of the ten most romantic places in the world." The White House Inn has established a superb reputation for providing gracious accommodation which is complimented by outstanding cuisine in the restaurant. Newly renovated in 2015, all rooms updated, brand new bathrooms, new wine cellar featuring a private dining room compliments the newly re-launched tavern/dining room menus. Rates start at $175. ... more   less
