We are proud to have appeared in the Winter 2007 issue of Country Accents. The article provides an in-depth profile of The White House Inn and what makes it tick. We appreciate the publisher's permission to reprint the article. It is available here in PDF format (1.25 megs).

Centrally located in the historic district, The White House Inn is just a minute's walk to Cooperstown's museums, shops and restaurants. This 19th-century Classic Greek Revival home was built by George Bowne, a reputed pirate who amassed his fortune plying the waters off the southern coast of the United States, resettling upon retirement to this quaint, upstate village on the shore of Lake Otsego.

The White House Inn provides the comforts of home, the elegance of fine lodgings, gracious hospitality, and the convenience of parking on site and walking to local attractions. Enjoy the seclusion of our private garden with inground pool. On a cool evening, relax by the fireplace in the gathering room, or repair to the parlor with a good book. At the end of your day, retire to tastefully appointed rooms and private baths. Awaken in the morning to a full, gourmet breakfast with delightful treats fresh from the oven daily.


Personal service is our commitment to make each guest feel special whether here on business or vacation. Allow us to assist you in planning your tourist activities, making your dinner reservations, and guiding you to places of interest. We want your visit to Cooperstown to be comfortable and exciting!
