“Wonderful, snowy weekend”
Reviewed 15 February 2006

It was a last minute decision to go to Abingdon for our anniverary weekend. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay if we had researched for a month! Our weekend at the White Birches Inn was a wonderful. We felt completely at home and probably monopolized Mike and Paulette's time too much. They were such a friendly, charming host and hostess, we couldn't help ourselves.

The Inn is a delight! Lovely rooms, complete amenities, beautiful grounds (made even more beautiful by a late night snowfall) and excellent hosts. We can't wait to return. My wife commented that the White Birches Inn is the standard by which she ranks all B&Bs.

White Birches Inn is a great place to stay. I was working in the area for several days a week and looked forward to my return each week. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is delicious, the comfort and service is unbeatable.

My wife Brenda and I enjoyed our stay at the White Birches.
They made us feel very comfortable, catering to all our needs.
The breakfasts were supurb around the table with good conversation.
The bed in the George Bernard Shaw Room slept as well as ours at home.
We will definitely go back.

The White Birches Inn was our favorite part of our anniversary trip to Abingdon, VA. Paulette & Michael, the inn keepers, took care of every detail for us. We had the best seats at the theater, our spot reserverd on the Creeper Shuttle, and our dinner reservations made. Breakfast was fun with entrees I have never tried before but were just wonderful. Our bed, which was extremely comfortable, was always made and free refreshments were always available. The Inn is so lovely. We felt completely at home and will not stay any where else next time we visit Abingdon.

Very relaxing! The house is beautifully decorated and beds are extremely comfortable. You feel so pampered after just a weekend stay at The White Birches Inn! The sheets and towels are so soft and comfy! The breakfast is delicious and the hosts are a delight. The hosts provide great recommendations on the sights and restaurants in the area. They also made reservations for us at a wondeful Spa. If you are looking for a luxurious, relaxing weekend with a warm, wonderful breakfast with shinning hosts---I highly recommend The White Birches Inn.

Our weekend trip to Abingdon was a wedding gift from some friends of ours. We had never been to a B&B before, and were surprised upon arriving to see that it was very different from a hotel. As we exited our car and approached the house, we noticed a little pond full of koi and lillypads, which made both of us smile. We were immediately welcomed and felt an air of comfort and friendliness upon entering the house. We were greeted by Paulette, one of the innkeepers, who gave us a quick tour around the house and filled us in on the fun things to do around town and which restaurants were worth a try. We stayed in the Noel Coward room, which is complete with a king size bed, whirlpool, and TV/VCR among other things. Our first night, we enjoyed watching a movie from the inn's video library in the comfort of our room. The next morning at 9:00am, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast with the other guests in the inn's cozy dining room. After our two night stay, we left White Birches Inn looking forward to our next visit. We were very surprised upon reading the reviews on this website to see that someone gave such a comfy, cozy, friendly little place a negative review. Our advice: listen to what most perople are saying :).

P.S. - Cookies and chocolate will reappear in your room on a daily basis.

My college friend and I have been visiting Abingdon for the past three years. We get together for 3 days once a year leaving our husbands in charge of the kids. Abingdon is the half way point and we always stay at the White Birches Inn. The inn is very beautiful and very well appointed. We both live comfortable lives and don't want to downgrade when we're away from home. In the past we had some less than pleasent b&b experiances but the White Birches Inn has always met our expectations and more which is why they win all the awards. The hosts go the distance to make our stay memorable. They have a wonderful way with people and are most accommodating. When we need 7:30 breakfast to go on the Creeper Trail, it is never an issue. Our favorite place is the wonderful porch. It seems to be the meeting place for all the guests in late afternoon for complimentary wine and great conversation. When we get home our husbands want to know when will they get to go? We tell them "this is our special place for girls weekend away." Abingdon is a wonderful town to visit with great shops and art galleries and White Birches Inn is definitely the place to stay.
