'''The White Forest Inn''' is an abandoned inn found in the Outlands. During ''Half-Life 2 Episode Two'', Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance pass through the area on their way to White Forest.

The inn is located in a small hamlet that includes several houses, storage buildings, and a gas station. In the years following the invasion, all of the buildings of the area, including the inn, were presumably looted and almost all items and possessions in each building were taken. When Gordon and Alyx visited the area, the buildings of the inn were almost completely devoid of furniture of any kind.

Due to the abundance of supply crates stored in and around the inn, and the discovery of a few dead bodies in the area, it appears that Resistance members used the area as an outpost at some point in the past, but either abandoned it for unknown reasons, or have been ambushed and killed by the Combine.

===''Half-Life 2 Episode Two''===

In ''Episode Two'''s fifth chapter, ''Under the Radar'', Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance find the tunnel on the main road sealed off by a Combine roadblock and are forced to take a detour through the village, straight into an ambush set by the Combine. They take cover in the inn, where they are besieged by several squads of Overwatch Soldiers, supported by Hunters and Overwatch Elite|Elite soldiers. They eventually fight their attackers off, disable the forcefield blocking the exit from the village and escape. The firefight leaves the inn in even worse shape.

When driving up to the inn from the road, the G-Man can briefly be seen walking inside the inn. However, he is not found inside or anywhere near the inn once the player reaches it.

==Behind the scenes==

*According to the script file "level_voices_episode_02.txt" found in the Source Particle Benchmark files, the White Forest Inn was apparently originally named "Olde Inne".

*The White Forest Inn has an The Orange Box Achievements|''Orange Box'' Achievement, "Quiet Mountain Getaway", requiring to survive the ambush.
*The gas pump can also be found at the Petroleum Station in ''Half-Life 2'', although it cannot be destroyed this time. The preview image for the gas pump model also reveals it originally had the temporary name "Cetaxo", an anagram of the real-world gas brand name "Texaco". Furthermore, the text displaying the cost and volume is in Swedish.
*This is one of the few location where Alyx Vance|Alyx is reprogrammed to use http// cover and http// blindfiring when close to a window, other being in The Radio Tower|Radio tower. However, it is not very effective.
*When not in the visible range of Overwatch Soldiers, the soldiers are actually shooting at the building instead of chasing the player and Alyx.
*During the ambush, if a Overwatch Elite|Elite Soldier is killed, he will drop a Battery instead of Energy Ball. This is most likely a balancing reason, as they are very efficient against Hunters.
