I grew up in Rensselaer. When my family and I travel back home, we try to stay at the White House. I remember walking around Rensselaer as a teen and admiring this mansion and the nearby homes in this historic part of town. The owners are absolutely lovely and their breakfasts are immense and incredible! They - and the previous inn owners - have done wonderful research on the history of the home and very knowledgeable about this small town. The rooms vary in size and rates; the home is very quiet and the beds are comfortable. The fresh baked cookies at night were a nice touch too! One room was suitable for our two boys and us to share; most rooms are perfect for couples.
