This is undoubtedly our all time favorite bed and breakfast. We have always felt welcome and enjoyed our stay. We have been going there since our 25th wedding anniversary and we are ready to celebrate our 50th (at the White Oak, of course). Ian and Yvonne are the best and we always get dinner because she is a fantastic cook. We've introduced many of our friends to the White Oak and would recommend it to anyone for any occasion.

My boyfriend and I just stayed at The White Oak Inn on June 6-8th. It was absolutely wonderful! We stayed in Cabin B. It was clean, comfortable and very quaint and beautiful! We had chocolates and roses by the Jacuzzi tub, and rose petals scattered on the bed. They are very happy to answer any questions about the surrounding areas and if you need anything they are right there to help you! We had dinner one of the nights of our stay and it was wonderful! Everything is made from scratch, and delicious! Breakfast was just as delightful! The butterscotch pecan muffins were to die for! Thank you so much for our wonderful weekend!!!

We went back again to the White Oak Inn and as usual everything was superb! They are so gracious and the food is the best ever. We took our friends which have never been to a B & B before and they were a little nervous, but Yvonne and Ian made them feel so welcomed. They are already talking about going again. We will definitely be going back. If you haven't been yet please do and you will know why I think it is the best ever.

We had our wedding/honeymoon (elopement) at the White Oak Inn on March 17, 2012. It was perfect!!! The cabin was so cozy and private. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. Our wedding took place in the gazebo beside the Inn and the ceremony was beautiful, as was the weather. We had a cute little reception with delicious home-made wedding cake and sparkling cider in the Inn right after the ceremony. Our wedding pictures turned out wonderful. The innkeepers took care of everything and made us feel so welcome and special. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend! Looking forward to visiting again soon!

We just got home from "The White Oak Inn" and I can't stop talking to our friends about the wonderful time we had. We were greeted by Ian, which was very friendly and helpful during our stay. Later on we met Yvonne also very nice , but can she cook. Oh my!! the meals we had were just awesome!!! It was definitely a 5 star Bed"n Breakfast. All I can say you will not be disappointed at this Inn. You will feel like you have landed in paradise. We will go back again. We have not stayed at one that was we feel like compares to the White Oak Inn.

We discovered the White Oak when we were celebrating our 25th anniversary. We loved it and have been back many times. We have attended the Murder Mystery weekends and the Christmas Carol play. The Murder Mystery weekends were fun and entertaining. The food is wonderful--Yvonne is a gormet cook. Ian and Yvonne are great hosts--warm and comfortable to be with. We feel like we are visiting friends when we stay there. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Can't think of a thing to complain about!!! This is our favorite bed and breakfast and we have stayed in many of them all over the country.

Spotless accomodations, delicious breakfasts and lovely setting made our trip wonderful even in the gray dark winter. Our 7 year old loved the house dog and cat. Ian gave her crackers to feed the sheep which she has talked about ever since! It's a great get-a-way.

We just spent a fabulous weekend at the White Oak Inn as part of their "Murder Mystery Weekend". So much fun! The breakfasts were delicious (french toast bananas foster, anyone?) and Saturday night's dinner was absolutely perfect. We also loved the "Chocolate Friday" evening buffet - a great way to start the weekend. Yvonne and Ian are perfect hosts; their staff is friendly and helpful, and the Inn itself is charming. We highly recommend this Inn to those who wish to experience a special weekend. Can't wait to go back!

While I was deployed, my husband and I traded emails on "the perfect vacation" to pass the days. He put together a baseball trip to Cincinnati that was great fun, but I looked for the perfect bed and breakfast. I found the White Oak Inn and decided it was The One. Yvonne and Ian were incredibly helpful from the first time I contacted them through checkout- I really felt that we were treasured guests. The Acorn Cottage was the perfect getaway to shut out the world and just enjoy being with my husband after so many months of separation- the little kitchenette was perfect for us to pack a few snacks and drinks, the bathroom was plenty toasty (I HATE cold feet in the morning!), the bedroom was very homey, and the living room was perfectly stocked with great touches! As for the food? Lovely! We had the dinner basket the first night, and it was just what I had hoped for. I remember the DELICIOUS muffins at breakfast the next day, and everything was just wonderful. It's been a couple years- I've been remiss with this review- so I don't remember details well, just the lingering memory of tasty and filling food with great company. If you're considering some time away from hustle and bustle, this is the perfect place to slip away to!
