“Great Experience!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

We were met at the door with a glass of Champagne and it just got better from there. The staff were all very hospitable. The owners who also do the breakfast were very entertaining and fun. We felt comfortable and relaxed the whole time there. We definitely plan to return.

Room Tip: This is beautiful place. All the room were great. I heard nothing but compliments from the other g...

but certainly not the last! My husband and I were gifted a two-night stay at Whitegate by our children and grandchildren this past Christmas. We had no idea what to expect, since we don't travel much (any:), but we really enjoyed it! So very relaxing. Great breakfasts, elegantly served with pansy and fresh fruit garnish on antique china along with charmingly funny banter by Frank, and a friendly visit from Ida Clare and Stryker. Absolutely beautiful grounds, just awakening with the early spring. Comfortable room included all the amenities including remote-control fireplace; clean and well-kept. Loved the decor and the piano! Dare I say on a par with the Biltmore Estate? Maybe not, but sure was more to our taste and liking. We highly recommend!

From our arrival to when we departed, we were treated to excellent service. We had an abundance of bottled water, sodas, teas, coffees, amaretto, cake and cookies - any time we wanted. During the social hour we were treated to a variety of hors d'oeuvres and champagne and wine. There was always great conversation and service that was spot-on. Breakfasts were delicious and rich, served in a celebratory and beautiful way. Our room (Emily Dickinson) was clean and comfortable and nicely appointed with toiletries, remote controlled fireplace, comfy bed, and a great shower. The grounds were calming and gorgeous. The seasonable weather permitted me to bring my yoga mat outside and enjoy some restorative exercise and meditation. Best B&B we have had the pleasure to visit!

Room Tip: Recommend a room facing the water features of the garden - waterfalls/creek - very serene!

just returned from a long weekend at the 1889 whitegate inn. frank, ralph and their staff were very professional and warm, and their attention to detail is evident from the very first entry to the property. the house is clean, beautifully decorated and the garden is wonderful and well maintained. ask ralph to see the orchid house, wow. the breakfasts were a great time to socialize, and as i could tell from other guests, personal requests are honored. frank is really funny, the four legged team of ida and stryker add a homey touch. tasty fruit course to start, entree during our stay was generally sweet, had one savory entree that presented beautifully and was a bit unevenly cooked. desserts were light and delicious. the housekeeping team were very professional and would surely be approachable about any issue that might arise. this inn has ample parking, accessible parking and an accessible suite as well.

Room Tip: we stayed in the lovely walt whitman suite, plenty of space, comfortable bed, cold fridge in the roo...

The Inn is beautiful and exceptionally well decorated and maintained. Our room, the Robert Frost Room, was clean, comfortable and the perfect oasis for our getaway stay. Our hosts and their staff could not have been more attentive or friendly. Every little convenience or amenity you could think of was provided. The superb location so close to the shops and restaurants downtown was an added bonus. And, the breakfast... WOW!
