We are a married couple just happen to be 2 woman. When the woman checked us in and saw us commented "we have you booked in room with one bed ". Owner needs to talk to her about that. Another issue I needed ice to treat my back and told to go buy ice at the market. Stay elsewhere.

My partner stayed here on the Labor Day weekend and then we both stayed for 3 days the following weekend. The place, as far as I'm concerned, is wonderful. Our room had a small microwave and fridge and coffee and tea was available in the lobby/sitting room area. The whole place has been re-done recently and it is wonderfully appointed,... More

If you are looking for a charming country inn look further. The Whitetail is cheap and basic, but has little charm--at leased rom unit 6. Eighty bucks a night and clean, it is not a terrible choice. It badly needs a dresser to put your clothes and we could do with a closet rather than a metal rack. But the... More

We've been traveling now for over a week from Florida and this Inn has been the cleanest. We were in the main building up stairs with a shared bathroom but we had a sink in our room. We loved all the windows and the spacious rooms. Everyone was friendly and helpful especially the gal that checked us in!

We stayed 1 night at Whitetail, really not knowing what to expect. It was a nice, clean room. The renovations that have been done are excellent (after speaking with Glen) and it's obviously his passion to revitalize the Inn. Great Kurig coffee & easy access. Comfortable bed!!
