We enjoyed our stay at The White House on Park Avenue. The breakfast was wonderful and there was a different meal each day. Coffee was ready for us before our meal, so we could enjoy a cup and relax in the beautiful sitting room. We will be back to stay again!

We were in town to see the migration of sandhill cranes, we left 5:00 in the morning and there was hot coffee and pumpkin bread for us at 5:00. We returned at 8:30 to a great breakfast. The rooms were very comfortable and the house was grand. We look forward to return and will make this a tradition to stay and to see the cranes.

Wow, Sally and Fred are such incredible hosts, they are family as soon as you walk in the door, even late as we did. Staying there for 3 nights wasn't enough so we will HAVE to go back to experience the great hospitality they provide. The atmosphere is just so warm and charming. The breakfasts are to die for each day and are served promptly at the predetermined times. Wow, can't wait for our next experience at the White House in Rensselaer, IN!!!

Our stay at the White House on Park was perfect. Cottage Retreat room with its oversized tub is the best and Sally's homemade cookies were a nice touch. The breakfast is another reason I love this place. Thanks Fred and Sally for making us feel right at home.
