A Stay at the White House

 For our anniversary/shopping trip/couple of days off,
we drove 3 hours to Medford Oregon, and stayed in a
B&B called "The White House".
A beautiful old home,
huge pillars in front....
Above was out wonderful cottagy bedroom suite.....
 My sweet fella lounging and watching TV.....huge TV....
 Wonderful several course berakfast each morning,
served by a delightful hostess/owner of the White House,
 My sweet fella, enjoying the last of his breakfast.
(in evenings she always had a snack, and a sweet in our room). =)
cool drinks available any time.....a full service place...=)
 Everything was decorated all up for Christmas....
 Much more beautiful that my pics could capture.
 Cathie only takes one couple at a time.....
this is the spare room, in case Scott got in the doghouse while
we were there. =)
so, so cute.....

Wonderful stay. We would go back again...
Here is the link in case you would like to know more.
Be sure to tell Cathie we sent you. =)
