“Nice, but I missed my jacuzzi soak.”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

This is a nice place to stay if you are visiting the area. The rooms were very clean & the food was good. The owners were very nice. We stayed in the suite which is a very large room with a comfortable bed. The soaking tub is huge but I was disappointed that it is not a Jacuzzi tub which is usually available in suites we have visited with similar rates for this time of year.

The White Garden Inn was just delightful. Our hosts, John & Linda, were very welcoming, and the room (Iva's Garden room) was very nicely appointed. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and we really enjoyed the company of the other guests. The Inn is just a couple of miles outside of town and easy to get to. We were sorry that we couldn't stay longer! Highly recommend!

We enjoyed another great weekend at the White Garden Inn. I mentioned in an email to the owner - that 2 of our children may stay with us (we were visiting for a sorority weekend at Miami University). John was kind enough to have 2 cots/rollaways in the room when we arrived.

Breakfast was delicious and the differing political views that were shared we're insightful.

We picked up a trail map for the nearby Houston Woods state park and hiked for hours.

I took advantage of one of the last sunny days and read outside on the porch in the back yard.

Word to the wise.... BOOK EARLY!

Enjoy.

This was the perfect place for a birthday trip with my sisters. When we arrived John showed us to the garden room, a lovely place to sit and enjoy a glass of complimentary wine.Each room is beautifully decorated with comfy beds and views of the serene 5 acre setting. John and Linda are very congenial people who gave us a warm welcome and delicious breakfast. We definitely plan to return!

I am selfishly hesitant to share this special place, but I know it is the right thing to do.

Our son is attending Miami University and we were searching for a place to stay when we visit. This is the place, so wonderful that I will plan my stay around their room availability. The innkeepers are warm and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and lovely, every one of them! The breakfast is fabulous and served family style. It is clear that this inn was planned with guest comfort in mind, from the spacious guest rooms to the wonderful, comfortable common areas. It has the charm of an older home with the convenience of a newer, modern home. The grounds are beautiful and well taken care of with beautiful flowers and gardens.

We loved it and hope to not have to stay anywhere else! Thank you very much innkeepers Linda and John, we lived it!

Room Tip: Any room is charming, they are all different, and wonderful!

It was my husband's and my first stay at a Bed & Breakfast. We splurged on the Queen Anne suite and had really high hopes about our stay. We ran into a lot of problems when we got there, however-- the toilet leaked when we first flushed it (which was easily fixed right away), the gas fireplace wouldn't light, the wifi internet didn't work, and while the bathtub/shower was GORGEOUS, the overhead showerhead and bath water spout wouldn't work... only the small handheld showerhead did while leaking water out the hose in the process... making for a clumsy time getting cleaned up in the morning!
The B&B and room themselves were so nice. I hope the owners can get these problems fixed before the next guests. If we go back, we probably won't splurge on the room with all the non-functioning amenities though.

We stayed at the White Garden Inn while visiting our child at Miami University and we hope to stay there again soon.

Owners John and Linda are warm, engaging, professionals who built this B & B from the ground up. They planned each common space very deliberately, thinking about how guests would enjoy spending their time. There are many places (both indoors and outside) for reading, playing cards, enjoying a cup of coffee, glass of beer/wine, or just talking – all perfectly well-suited for small groups of 3 or 4 as well as larger groups of people enjoying being together. The guest breakfast room works well for those who wish to eat a quick breakfast and be on their way as well as those who prefer to linger over a 2nd and 3rd cup of coffee while getting to know others staying at the Inn. The owner’s extended their hospitality to our daughter and suggested that she join us for Sunday breakfast, even though her meal plan at the dorm includes breakfast.

Since we arrived at night, we had no idea about the lovely rear yard with its stone patio, fire-pit, and seating area. I found this outside area when I headed into the sunroom early in the morning to read and wait for the others in my family to wake up.

The guest rooms are large, and very, very clean and the beds and bedding are comfortable. Guests are offered a basket (in the common area on the 2nd floor) of soaps, shampoo, hair dryers, and other items that one may need. The sun room (mentioned earlier) has a mini-fridge that is well stocked with beer, wine, and soft drinks – all complimentary.

White Garden Inn is just 2 miles from Miami University – close enough to be very convenient yet a “world away” in that guests are treated to an authentic country inn experience. There are only 5 guest rooms - so book early!
