Best experience ever
I can’t say enough about Bob and the Whitman. The house is absolutely gorgeous, welcoming, and inviting, and Bob Vardzel is such a huge reason for this. From the moment we inquired about this venue, he was unbelievably responsive and incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the house and the city. He helped with so many planning details from day 1, and when we arrived to triple digit heat, he was flexible and suggested some great alternatives so our guests weren’t baking in the hot sun. The dinner he made (just days after a major surgery- amazing dedication) was literally one of the best meals I’ve ever had. He was friendly and inviting to our guests, and to us. Bob went above and beyond all of our expectations and made sure we had an amazing wedding weekend. Booking the Whitman was the best wedding decision we made, hands down.Sent on 06/09/2019

The Whitman was a dream come true!
My (now0 husband and I had a very intimate destination wedding and the Whitman both served as housing for both our families and the venue. I can't even describe how amazing our stay was at the Whitman. The mansion itself was an amazing blend of beautiful historic architecture with top of the line amenities and appliances! Every room is absolute beautiful and the view of Forsyth Park is breathtaking. Bob (the general manager) was an absolute pleasure to work with. Anything we needed at all, Bob made it happen! He is also an amazing chef and catered our wedding dinner and brunch the next day. We had gone out to several highly rated restaurants prior to our wedding - and Bob's cooking was by far better than any of them! I still have dreams at night about his baked brie and beef tenderloin. A truly cannot have imagined a better place to get married!Sent on 04/21/2019
