We enjoyed the beautiful surroundings of this historic home. The owner was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. This B&B is a good value, probably because of it's location, but it was the perfect place for us to stop on our way to Michigan.

What a terrific place to stay when visiting the Rensselaer area; this B&B is in a great location of town with a quite neighborhood. Fred & Sally are quite the hosts and really make you feel right at home. Super opportunity to take a step and feel back in time during a stay in this historic home.

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.
