Great bartender named John Mark steered us toward delicious dinners. Pigs' ears and a short ribs burger for spouse and a tuna burger for me. Loss if a star for including a pickle when specifically directed not to. This loss mitigated by manager's gracious apology. Classic Vt setting and service.

We drove past this wonderful old inn and had to turn around and drop in for lunch. The sunken bar offers a great cocktail with a fabulous view. The burgers are fabulous!

I can't speak to the lodging but only to the restaurant/food experience.Situated on a hill overlooking the western hills, you have a wonderful view with the gorgeous VT sunsets. So we arrived to sit on the deck just at sunset and were told, "It gets cold out here and we can't guarantee you a table inside if you decide to... More

4 of us came for drinks in the bar around 5:30, (we were the only ones), had high expectations...the bar is pretty and very cool in the fact that the bartender is below us in his "'pit" (which we loved) so its not a typical high bar. The sun was setting thru the trees outside coming thru floor to ceiling... More

Getting a cup of coffee and a breakfast sandwich this morning at 8am at The White House was a big problem for the staff. There wasn't a guest around and I see why. Who would want to inconvenience the staff or at least I felt that way. So I drive done to Dot's restaurant in town. Wonderful place. Maybe I... More

The White House Inn is a beautiful facility. We didn't stay there, but went for dinner with friends. We were disappointed in the menu selections. Basically, they offer pub fare (plus sushi) with a very limited selection of dining entrees. The White House used to be a place for fine dining and now is a place for excellent burgers. But... More
