Spring is Finally Here!

April 27th, 2016

Although the temperatures are cool at present, recent warm weather has caused everything to “green up” – or other colors.

We become busy at this time of year, with Saint Joseph’s College commencement just around the corner. May begins our busy season, which runs through the end of October.

Book now for a getaway this summer!

Fall at the White House on Park Avenue Bed & Breakfast

Great week at the BnB with some wonderful people: guests from California, Colorado, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Indiana! A full house around the breakfast table, as guests related their stories of visiting the sandhill cranes at dusk and dawn, their journeys in life, and lots of laughter.

It’s a great day to be an innkeeper! We are blessed!

Happy Halloween!

November 1st, 2015

A small but hardy band of Trick or Treaters last night for Halloween. The wind and rain kept some at home, but we enjoyed the costumes of the brave souls who ventured out!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

We hope you enjoyed a cold, windy Valentine’s Day! A couple from Chicago on a getaway came for an overnight – what a great day to spend at The White House on Park Avenue Bed and Breakfast! Sally made baked eggs, Yogurt Delight, ham and homemade banana bread.

Here’s to warmer days ahead!

We had a great houseful of guests this weekend, here for a wedding. Beautiful weather and delightful breakfast conversation.

It’s nice to see budding trees and flowers blooming. This is our favorite time of year – so much green and color beginning to show.

We’re getting busy – all weekends in May are busy with weddings, graduations and getaways! Plan your trip now!

Football Season!

September 7th, 2013

SJC Flag

The college football season has begun, and locally Saint Joseph’s College hosts Valparaiso University today. There is excitement around campus for a successful season – we wish them good luck, as we do with all of the college’s sports teams in action here in the fall.

It’s a busy weekend at The White House Bed & Breakfast: we’re hosting a wedding on the grounds; and have a full house with guests attending a reunion, others at another wedding reception, and parents visiting their children at SJC.

Fall Festival weekend

August 25th, 2013

It’s that time of year – this weekend was the annual Fall Festival. That means our friends Bill and Marge are here visiting! We enjoy our return guests so much, it’s like catching up with distant relatives!

This weekend we also are hosting a minister and his wife, and another couple on a getaway. As summer comes to an end, we find quite a few guests are looking to get in one more weekend before schedules fill up with school activities, etc.

Enjoy what’s left of summer!

Back to School at SJC

August 11th, 2013

It’s hard to believe that school begins in a week at Saint Joseph’s College! This weekend we enjoyed a full house: one couple on a quick getaway weekend, a business guest, and a family from Florida bringing their son to start at the college.

It’s not too early to start making reservation requests for home football games. Although we’re full for homecoming October 4-5, we still have rooms available for some other dates: September 7, September 14, October 26, and November 2.

Terrific Guests from North of the Border!

July 26th, 2013

We love our guests! This week we entertained a group of motorcyclists from Ontario, Canada on a vacation road trip. They were funny, interesting, complimentary, and we wished they could have stayed a week! After an early breakfast we wished them well on their return trip home. God bless you all!
