We have been to the White Oak Inn on a couple of occasions. Let's get the negative out of the way first. The upstairs was too warm for sleeping well and too many blankets on the bed. No way to easily crack a window for ventilation. The Maple room is quite small. BUT, we went back again because the positives far outweigh the negatives.
The Ash room is very spacious and quite comfortable. Other rooms we peeked into seemed large enough to be comfortable as well.
Our first visit was Thanksgiving weekend 2010. Guests were invited to bring a potluck dish and wine to share for Wednesday night. This allowed the guests to get to know each other in a friendly fashion and made it easier for the kitchen staff to concentrate on making the most bountiful buffett for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. EXCELLENT. This is on top of the spectacular breakfast. Do not plan a diet for this visit.
Another trip was for a Murder Mystery weekend. Guests are given a character description before and the chance to dress the part. Actors come to move the story along and it's a fun evening.
Another visit was for Nature weekend. Guests were taught about mushroom hunting and learned about the local wildlife.
Your hosts are Yvonne and Ian and they are friendly and interesting and interested in lots of things. Yvonne is an excellent chef and she's got a nice staff to assist.
I think we'll go back!
