Painting part two…

August 5th, 2017

Now that the power washing and scraping is mostly done, the primer is being applied. Cesar (CJ Painting) and Joel are working hard every day – in heat, threat of rain, and on ladders & a lift.

Here’s a picture Sally took of some of the house with primer…

We hope everyone enjoyed a patriotic 4th! There was plenty of booms and flashes of color in the neighborhood the past few days as townsfolk celebrated!

The White House on Park Avenue Bed and Breakfast entertained guests from Michigan, Minnesota, and Illinois over the holidays. Great conversation and we enjoyed meeting new people, and welcoming back previous guests. Be sure to visit our reservations page to check for availability for your visit to Rensselaer and surrounding areas!

House painters are here and beginning on the time-honored tradition of painting the house. I wonder how many coats of paint have been applied to this house since it was completed in 1891?!

Summer is upon us, and be sure to visit our Reservations page to secure your room for weddings, reunions, family gatherings, getaways or just to spend a quiet night away from home! We’re keeping our low rates the same – we haven’t increased in 8 years!

We are busy this summer with odd jobs, including painting the entire house for 2-3 weeks later in June/July. It’s a big house, and we imagine that there are a few coats of paint on this 126-year-old house!

Friends and Followers:

Many of you have heard about the suspension of operations at Saint Joseph’s College, and some of you know that we are both tenured professors at the school. Sally has been teaching at SJC for 19 years; I have been there 39 years.

According to industry research, over 80% of innkeepers have at least one full-time job outside the inn. That applies to us. While we enjoy bountiful bookings from May – November, we need our salaries to assist in the winter months.

Because we don’t know what we will be doing after May 6 (or where we will be doing it!) we will be actively pursuing options to sell the bed and breakfast. We will insist the new owners honor reservations already made. In the meantime don’t hesitate to book rooms, and check back here often to see updates! We will be posting similar updates on our blog on www.whitehouseonpark.com

Additionally, we are open to the idea of selling it as a private home. Those who have visited and stayed with us know that this is a well-maintained historic home in a quiet neighborhood just minutes walking to downtown shops and stores.
