We had admired the White House Inn for 40 years before finally staying there in Feb 2012. It did not disappoint. The breakfast was amazing and the dinner was as well. We ate in both the tavern and the dining room. Our room was clean and comfortable and nicely decorated. Check in was super easy as was check out. We...

This inn is absolutely charming, and a wonderful place for a quiet, romantic get-away or a ski trip base. My boyfriend and I went for a long weekend in January 2012. Every little part of the experience exuded their friendliness and hospitality. I needed to redeem a Groupon for the trip, and the process was easy and transparent, even when...

A beautiful inn on top of a hill overlooking tiny Wilmington, VT. We had a great meal there - and some of the best mushroom soup we've ever had... hope they keep it on the menu nightly! The waitstaff was really sweet and on point - will definitely make it our go-to place for great drinks, good food and a...

I'm surprised to read so many negative reviews recently. We stayed over President's Day weekend and had such a lovely time. Room 1 was immaculately clean and beautifully appointed. On our second day, we returned to find wood thoughtfully stacked in the fireplace ready to go. Brenda, Laura and the rest of the staff were warm and welcoming - and...

My husband and I recently stayed at the inn by purchasing a Groupon which gave us half off the rates. Thank goodness as I would have been even more disappointed if we had paid ful price. Upon arrival we parked at the door closest to what they called check-in. The path was not shovelled and it was not early in...

The White House is an elegant Victorian mansion/small hotel nestled on a hill, with gorgeous views of the Vermont mountains, beautiful gardens, and elegant furnishings on the comfortable porches and other public areas. A great get-away in summer, with the Marlboro Music Festival near-by, or in winter, being near Mt. Snow. The rooms are comfortable, but some are a bit...

Let me start off by saying our thoughts are with all the residents of Wimington, Dover, and all towns affected by hurricane Irene. We booked The White House Inn for our wedding ceremony and reception back in January. My wife grew up in East Dover, Vermont and was very familiar with all venues in the area. After visiting every option...

Lovely inn with very friendly staff. Good restaurant and cozy bar. We look forward to coming back later this year. It must be amazing during the foliage season.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The White House is a Victorian mansion offering you elegant yet relaxed surroundings in Southern Vermont located near the Mount Snow Resort. Set on the crest of a high, rolling hill, and surrounded by towering hardwoods and formal flower gardens, it is readily obvious why the Boston Herald and New York Times selected the White House Inn as "one of the ten most romantic places in the world." The White House Inn has established a superb reputation for providing gracious accommodation which is complimented by outstanding cuisine in the restaurant. Newly renovated in 2015, all rooms updated, brand new bathrooms, new wine cellar featuring a private dining room compliments the newly re-launched tavern/dining room menus. Rates start at $175. ... more   less
