Bob and Steve were very helpful and attentive to our needs. We got first class service in a gorgeous setting with what my guests described as the best wedding food they'd ever eaten!

Booking The Whitman for our wedding was one of the best decisions I made. The house was so beautiful and charming and created the perfect environment for us and our guests for our wedding weekend. Bob Vardzel went above and beyond our entire stay. We got married in the courtyard, had a cocktail hour on the first floor of the house and then the reception in the courtyard. Thanks to him and his staff everything went smoothly on our wedding day and I cannot thank him enough for that. Our guests also raved about our food at the reception!Sent on 08/21/2018

We can not say enough about our wedding at the Whitman. Bob made preparing and planning very easy, he was quick to respond to any of our questions which made making decisions very easy. He was flexible and extremely accommodating. Every detail of the house is incredible. Plenty of space for everyone (we had 14 people sleeping there) and the kitchen was to die for! Bob came in the day of the wedding, started cooking and prepping....he had everything ready, his team was like a perfectly oiled machine. The food was amazing (the salmon is the very best we have ever had)!! His team cleaned up at the end of the night and by the time we went to bed, the house was back to it's pre-wedding state. They were truly amazing. We enjoyed our time at the Whitman so much! You will not be disappointed!Sent on 05/16/2018
