The White House Inn
Ranked #4 of 10 Wilmington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 August 2011

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 in the area we were blown away by everything the White House had to offer. From the moment we walked in we were amazed by the hospitality and friendliness of the staff. The owner Stacy gave us a tour, offered us a drink, and took us through all aspects of what they had to offer. Their flexibility and willingness to work with us was beyond anything else we experience on our search for a venue. At that moment we made the decision to go with The White House.
After making arrangements with Stacy we coordinated everything else with Wendy, the Inn manager. From the first time we spoke with her she made us feel extremely confident in her knowledge and expertise in coordinating the remaining details of our wedding. She went above and beyond from the beginning drawing us a details schematic of the entire inn so we could set up our guest’s accommodations and other event details. She was always easily accessible, and when she was not Mark or another of the staff was always there.
So after months off work and coordination on everyone’s behalf we showed up for our wedding weekend. The Inn was immaculate (I randomly went into some of the guests rooms before people arrived and they were all spotless). When a guest arrived and there was not an AC unit in their room the staff immediately installed one. All the guests arrived and were checked in immediately by the very courteous staff.
From the time we checked in there was not a time when one of the staff was not there to answer questions, take a food order, get people a drink, or any other request.
Once our wedding day arrived the staff was working hard behind the scenes making everything happen smoothly. Every aspect of the ceremony and receptions went off without a hitch. If this was the end of our experience we would still be absolutely amazed, but it was not…..thanks to Hurricane Irene!!
The morning of Sunday, August 29 2011 is one our guests and The White House will never forget. Irene held off until after our reception, but hit hard that morning. About 90% of our guests were not able to get home that day. Once everyone realized we could not leave the White House Inn that’s where the staff truly stepped up to the next level. All our rooms were held for us until we could leave. Even though we were basically and island due to the storm the staff that was there were still able to serve us breakfast (which is included in your stay and was AMAZING), lunch, and dinner. Oh, and this was all with NO ELECTRICITY. As most of the staff had their own issues happening because of the storm (Craig we are all relieved your cat was ok) they were still taking care of us, even driving us in the White House Inn truck to the supermarket to get supplies.
Monday morning Wendy kept us all informed of the road situations and help with giving everyone directions home. Even though we were all relieved to get back to our homes and loved ones, it was still sad to leave the Inn because of the way it was our home for a few days during that crazy time.
With all that being said I would recommend anyone to stay our have their wedding at The White House Inn and urge Wendy or Stacy to point anyone who wants a reference in my direction.
Thanks again to Stacy, Wendy, Mark, Craig, and the entire staff for an unforgettable and amazing wedding!!!

The Inn itself is very nice. The common rooms, bar, and dining rooms were well maintained. We had a room with a balcony. It was nice. Clean. But the balcony had chipped paint on the floor, and cobwebs, with bugs stuck in them, all over! I asked for a broom so I could sweep them off. The woman at the desk came up and swept it for us. Leaving a lot of webs and bugs behind. (I was wishing I could have done it myself)
The bathroom had no mirror over the sink. It was over the toilet! You had to straddle the toilet to use the mirror!! The lights were over the sink, so there was not much light on the left side of the mirror(over the toilet), and I kept banging my arm on the wall when I dryed my hair, when using the mirror. Very odd place to put the mirror!! Other than that, it was nice. The outdoor pool area needs some upkeep, it's starting to get taken over by weeds and bushes that need to be cut back.
A full breakfast was included, It was very hearty, and good. Although, I would have liked some fresh fruit on the menu.

We love this B&B and try to come every year. It's quiet, relaxing, picturesque. We've stayed in many rooms, but this time we stayed in Room 1. It was quiet despite being off of the main staircase. It had a lovely fireplace.

We had dinner in the bar - good food, super convenient! There's a nice restaurant option in the B&B as well that we have enjoyed on other occasions.

Breakfast is included and the blueberry pancakes are delicious!

There is a TV, computer, games, pool, and exercise area on the property. There is parking and if you get snowed in, they will help plow you out.

It's a lovely old estate, great for relaxing and/or romantic weekends away. It is located about at 15 minute drive to Mount Snow.

We have and will continue to recommend it to our friends.

From the time I made the reservations until we checked out it was a positive experience.
When we arrived we were cheerfully greated by the staff, who made it a point to show us all of the wonderful amenitites that this beautiful early 1900's home had to offer. It was extremely clean, and the decor was true to the period of the home. When we were brought to our room 112, I was immediatly pleased with the size of the bed (king) the large jacuzzi tub and our own private entrance. Again the room was very much true to the decor of the rest of the home. We relaxed and enjoyed the indoor swimming pool and steam room, they also have a sauna. We went to our room relaxed until dinner which they start serving at 5:30. You have your choice between a casual tavern style dining and a fine dining experience. We chose the fine dining experience. The menu had so many wonderful options at reasonable prices. The dining staff was very friendly and efficient. Our dinner was amazing every course was timed just right and the food was delicious. We had a table near the fireplace and it just set the mood for a romantic dinner. On our way out we stopped for a drink at their well stocked bar. The woman who served us was very friendly and knew a great deal about the homes history. Ask to see the secret door leading to a hidden stair case you would never find it on your own. When we returned to our room we had a cozy fire and just enjoyed the atmosphere.
I had the best night sleep I have ever had while away. When we awoke we were just past the time for breakfast, but they made us feel like we had plenty of time. We got to meet their sweet little dog who was your best friend for a piece of bacon. On to the food,
blueberry pancakes a must, a bottomless cup of coffee, lean bacon and fresh juice.
When we checked out we were asked about our stay, in a truly caring way. They really made you feel like it was important that you enjoyed yourself. The big suprise was that
we were a few days short of the price reduction on the rooms for the next season and stacy the owner reduced the price without any fan fare, we didn't even know until we checked out. I would recommend this lovely Inn to anyone who really needs a getaway, or someone who is just passing through. We will definately be back to enjoy their full spa in a couple of months.
