“From the moment we stepped through the front door, it was like a home away from home!”
Reviewed January 24, 2005

From the moment we stepped through the front door, it was like a home away from home!
The 4 of us (2 couples) had informed the staff that we expected to arrive late in the evening from Philadelphia, so our Innkeepers were out at dinner when we arrived ...their ward for the weekend "Scooby" (their son's yellow lab) was there to greet us with a wagging tail and his toy in his mouth - ready to play! For the non pet friendly - fear not, he is not a usual fixture of the inn. Ed and Marge were surprised to see us so early - they lit the fire and told us to make our selves at home.
We had planned only a 2 night stay, but Mother Nature had other plans and brought us a Blizzard - Ed and Marge took great care of all the details of our unexpected third night - What great hosts they are!
At the White House Inn, you are sure to find: A freindly and courteous staff, CLEAN and well appointed rooms with private baths and siting rooms, hearty and delicious breakfasts (feel free to ask for seconds in the unlikely chance you still have room), a laid back comfortable and cozy atmosphere.
I have stayed in a number of B&B's but by far Ed and Marge's White House Inn has won our hearts and has us looking forward to a return visit!!

The White House Inn is a wonderful place to stay with family. We stayed in the carriage house which had more than enough room for a family of five.It was nice to come back in the afternoon and sit on the back porch with a view of the garden and pool. The stream next to the Inn was very soothing especially at night. Margie and Ed are wonderful hosts, who make you feel right at home. The breakfasts were awesome and they went out of their way to accomodate the children. The location was perfect and you were able to walk to all attractions. We will definately be back again.

This H-U-G-E baseball fan figured the only way to get the Mrs. to the Baseball Hall of Fame was through a B&B. For putting up with my baseball babble for an entire weekend she deserves at least that. The Whitehouse Inn came highly recommended by a friend, and so off we were to Cooperstown. I need to stress that I am not a B&B fan. The few times my wife and I have gone were quite franky -- painful. As a 30 yr. old guy, high tea with blue haired ladies talking about basket weaving is not quite my thing. Until now, I thought this was too common a theme among B&Bs. I write this review to tell you I was wrong! The Whitehouse Inn was AWESOME! In short it was clean. Plus the rooms were private/secluded from the next room over (private hallways, bathrooms, and sitting rooms). We had great breakfasts with nice people, nice conversations with those that had similiar HOF interests. Also you are just a short walk to the Hall of Fame. Be sure to ask Ed about Ozzie, E Murray, Niekro and other HOFs that put their families up their for their inductions.

What a great place.

PS. Be sure to check the front staircase were some big leaguers sign thank you notes when they stay --directly on the wall.
