We very much enjoyed our stay at the White House. Though we were barely there long enough to sleep and eat breakfast, those needs were met very well. The house was very inviting and it would have been a very comfortable place to have spent more time. The hosts were warm and welcoming and very accommodating. It will definitely be our "go to" the next time we are in town.

The White House is a lovely Victorian home and Fred and Sally are very gracious hosts. Breakfast was great - orange French toast, sausage and fresh fruit. The bed was very comfortable and the quality of air conditioning was much appreciated on a hot summer day. I would strongly recommend The White House for a stay in Rensselaer.

We love Fred and Sally Berger and the White House on Park. We were married on Friday afternoon at this beautiful house and our family occupied three of the four charming rooms. We could not have chosen a more perfect place. We live locally and plan to return on our one year anniversary and every year after if we can.

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.
