Upon arriving we were greeted at the front desk by a lovely young lady who showed us to our room and briefly gave us a tour of the unoccupied rooms for our viewing..a ladies "afternoon tea event" was taking place and the area was full of hustle and bustle, yet we were made to feel welcomed and special..we were given options for the afternoon and then welcomed back for the "wine and cheese social" early evening..we sat under a large tree with our wine in hand and reading material, very comfortable and enjoyable..the staff was great and the accomodations met our expectations..
My husband & I recently spent 2 nights at the Rosemont, and it was absolutely lovely! Upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff, and were welcomed w/a wine & cheese reception. Accomodations were very nice - we stayed in one of the larger suites (the Eisenhower), which featured a confy bed, 2 love seats, and a private bath w/a claw foot soaking tub. We found the historic aspect of the inn to be faciniating. Such a peaceful & relaxing place, and the view from the grand portico was magnificent! We were served coffee a delicious b'fast each morning, which was prepared by the chef. She was very kind, and even spent time walking around to each guest to ensure that we were happy w/our meal. The inn offered us tickets for wine tastings at 2 different wineries, which was a lot of fun. And the inn's staff was more than happy to offer suggestions for dining, as well as various area activities. The only negative thing about this trip was that we were sad when it was time to leave! My husband & I are already looking fwd to our next trip to Rosemont! d:-)
Coming from DC the trip was a short drive to Waypoint House. We had a wonderfully comfortable stay in the Home and Hearth Room and our hosts were incredibly helpful in giving us tips for dinner and for a hike on Sunday morning. Rachael's culinary skills are fantastic and they were very accommodating in providing gluten-free alternatives.
We stayed overnight on June 28, 2014 in a charming room with en suite bath. The host and hostess combine graciousness and warmth with an easy business process that we appreciated very much. Rachel readily accommodated my request for a non-sweet breakfast and gave us a meal that went far beyond the bacon-eggs-toast alternative I rather expected. The house is quiet, cool, and comfortable. The garden is a lovely place to read or contemplate --- and the variety and song of the birds was wonderful. We recommend Waypoint House without reservation.
Beautiful late 1800's house with so many amenities....porch, patio, garden and superb bedrooms. We stayed in the Shore Room with attached bathroom, very comfortable. Rachael and Jonathan were great hosts, we wish we could have stayed longer. Loved the breakfast!
Overall, we had a very nice experience at Rosemont Manor. The grounds and the building were lovely. We were pleased to be able to upgrade to a larger room with a small balcony we could open for fresh air. Luckily, I had a small electric fan as the rooms do not have ceiling fans. We had originally reserved the Einstein Room It was too small for my comfort and I am certainly glad we upgraded. The staff we had dealings with at Rosemont Manor were very good. The breakfast frittata did not meet the expectations described on the menu. The fruit presentation was very nice. We had to ask for jam or apple butter to accompany the meal. The coffee served with breakfast was not hot. All in all, it was a very pleasant get-a-way.
We had a nice weekend away from our lives in DC. We visited some vineyards and checked in around 3PM. Rachael was ready for us and welcoming. The rooms were clean and contemporary but retained some of the feel of a 130 y/o home. After dinner we had a long and pleasant conversation with both Rachael and John. We toured the gardens the next morning and left very impressed. Would recommend without reservation.
It was our first stay at Smithfield Farms, but certainly won't be our last. What and amazing location!! The Summer Kitchen Cottage is charming, well appointed, clean and comfortable. The Inn Keepers could not make you feel more welcomed and comfortable. The food was delicious and so fresh. A terrific feature was the location, after a lovely drive up and apple blossom lined orchard, one goes over a small stone bridge with a running brook below to look up to a beautiful set of three old world, charming buildings. Well decorated interior, with just enough, but not too much. The grounds surrounding the house are well kept and beautiful, very relaxing. Walking the farm is an adventure that takes you back in time in a most relaxing and nostalgic way. Graciousness and charm abound, and definitely worth another visit.
Rosemont is set in a beautiful area. Expect your stay to be fun and filled with antique stores, history and rolling hills. We visited several of the nearby towns and enjoyed several different restaurants. The Manor's chef creates wonderful breakfasts sure to incite your taste buds. The only thing I caution is that many of the stores are only open Friday-Sunday or have limited hours so plan accordingly.
We had a lovely time during our short stay. We needed a small break from home, but had to stay close to home. Waypoint House was the perfect place. Our room was perfect, the owners were very friendly and made us feel at home. Breakfast was fantastic. Would not have changed a thing! Would definitely recommend.
We found the home enchanting in a lovely quiet neighborhood. Rachael and Jonathan were absolutely wonderful in providing an excellent and relaxing stay. Last but not least, the meals served and the atmosphere was excellent. I will absolutely stay there again.
My wife and I were only able to stay for one night but the house was well kept, quiet and nice. The food was great and Rachael gave us some great suggestions so that we could relax while making the best of our short stint. Book a room here you will be happy you did.
Everything was great, very romantic. Don't be too worried about the stink bugs! they didn't bother us much and there is a disclaimer at the back of the brochure about them. Also, bath was nice, but we wanted to take a quick shower after a bath but the water was cold. O well. Everything else was perfect, bfast was super good :)
I booked a room with Rachael and Jonathan for my husbands birthday and we loved it! They are both so friendly and the accomadations were fantastic. The house is close to a variety of restaurants and they were great at offering suggestions. The house was exactly what we were looking for....a non-traditional b&b. No clutter, no bulky furniture. Clean crisp rooms with just the right amount of decor. And breakfast was outstanding!!! We will definately be return visitors! Susan & Dave
We stayed here for only one night and loved it. The owners were so welcoming and nice. Our room was comfortable, beautiful and charming, as was the rest of the house. Rachael served us scrambled eggs with ricotta and chives with fresh fruit, yogurt and bacon. Needless to say, I cleaned my plate. Delicious! During breakfast, we talked with Rachael and learned about the history of the house and local facts. We will definitely be back to check more activities and sites she recommended and Waypoint House, of course! Two thumbs up!
