A Perfect Experience

5 on June 13, 2012

I found the White Oak B&B on website - proved to be a good choice. Close to Genesee Country Village where we had reservations for a special event evening. Arriving early in the afternoon, we had time to freshen up and walk through the Victorian home's well-kept gardens. We had a great night's rest and awakened to the aroma of "breakfast" cooking. The delicious meal was enjoyed in the multi-windowed dining room which offered a beautiful view of the lawns. We'll be back!

This inn surpasses quality, excellence, and hospitality. Barb is such a pleasure and I can't wait to stay here again!

A sense of history

4.6 on October 31, 2011

Barbara was as charming and genteel as her elegant town house and made us very welcome. We had the Garden Room which was furnished tastefully with antique furniture...what a magnificent wooden bedhead! The room and en suite were clean and comfortable and breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Barbara gave us information and ideas for visits in the area and was a very lovely host. We really enjoyed our brief stay here and would happily stay again.

You won't be disappointed

We arrived for a one night stay and was welcomed with a beautiful historic home within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Our room had beautiful antiques and breakfast was absolutely delicious.

Outstanding stay at White Oak

4.6 on August 24, 2011

Our stay at White Oak Bed and Breakfast was wonderful and unforgettable. Barbara is the best innkeeper. She was not only extremely friendly and warm, she also made you feel like this was your home for the days you spent there. The rooms were comfortable and also charming. The library was wonderful and the food was outstanding too! I would recommend White Oak to all of our friends and we will definitely be back! Thank you Barbara!

Lovely Historic B&B

3.6 on August 20, 2011

Lovely historic home with beautifull furnishings. Barbara is a wonderfull hostess, knowledgable about the area. She also has a wonderfull collection of hand made items by herself that make great gifts for friends and even for yourself. We so enjoyed our stay at White Oak that we will drop in again when we are in the area. A great thing about at White Oak is that we were accepted for a one night stay. Many B&B's do not offer that option and that is where Barbara is great in catering to those travelers who are passing thru to a final destination where one night only is needed in their journey. To Barbara my wife and I say THANKS!!!!!!!!!!! We will be back when we travel thru again down the road. Tom & Carol Krol Easthampton, MA

Enjoyed stay

Met with husband for long weekend visit. Gracious & helpful hostess. Excellent breakfast service.

Found a treasure

We were excited to discover such a jewel so close to home. It was a charming escape at such a reasonable price that we might get away more often. The photos don't do it's beauty justice. The host was very welcoming.

Homey feel

4.0 on February 16, 2011

This B&B is like going into your favorite grandma's home. It is warm and cozy. The innkeeper greets you with a smile and gently brings you to your room after a brief, but pleasant conversation. The breakfast is served in a large dining room with big picture windows on two sides. You are not rushed to finish either. It is a complete breakfast, not a continental one. Intend to use again if I am up that way again.

Tremendous Value

4.8 on December 23, 2010

This is a great B&B. The innkeeper, Barbara Herman, provides superior service but is not overly intrusive. The room we stayed in, the Garden Room, was beautifully furnished, roomy and comfortable and a terrific value. The house overall is very elegant. It's close to Letchworth State Park where we did a great winter hike above the canyon. We'd also recommend Yard of Ale, a nice dinner spot that is 15 minutes away.
