From lovely breakfasts in the relaxed opulence of the formal dining room, to comfortable beds in well-appointed rooms, to commanding views from the balconies, Rosedell Mansion is a great place to spend a weekend. Innkeeper Holly was unfailingly gracious despite our late arrival, and produced yummy and beautiful breakfasts. I was particularly charmed by the banana slices arranged like plinths, each supporting a perfect raspberry. Holly is clearly someone who knows her Palladio. Anyway, Rosedell is a fine - and surprisingly economical - place to stay. If your travels take you to Yakima, you would do well to check it out.
Stayed in the Parker room. This was absolutely perfect. I was visiting my sister, and this room gave us a comfortable place to hang out. The house if fun. The neighborhood is a great place to stay. Holli was very accommodating. Breakfast was nice.
We stayed in the Master for a Senior Softball tournament and had enjoyed Holli's hospitality and wonderfully prepared breakfasts. The Rosedell is a grand building to wander, with many original features. I'm looking forward to our next visit and seeing Holli's progress on the carriage house - another restoration project under way. If you stay in the Master, look in the guestbook for the notes from a Larsen grandchild, who stayed there in 2014. It's a sweet recollection of childhood happiness and family holidays at Rosedell.
Holli was overly accommodating for our entire stay! She let us stop by early and get the door code and show us our room, then went on to give us a map of wine country and point out local favorites! The house was beautifully restored and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, and Holli sat with us and chatted while we ate! The front porch has a beautiful view of the grounds and relaxing porch swings to enjoy the morning sun on! Loved our stay!
Very nice stay here. Quiet and relaxing. Rooms are super clean. Breakfast is great!! Holli is wonderful. We stayed on Halloween and the B&B had over 2,000 trick or treaters!!! The appeal here is to die for!! Cost is reasonable for B&B. Will go back. Surprised my wife here for her 63rd birthday. She loved it!!!
We stayed in the master room, which was outstanding with a very large bathroom. The house is very nicely restored. The website said there is a view of the city from the balcony, but really just trees. Not a big deal since downtown Yakima isn't much. Only negative is the very creaky floors, which I guess is to be expected in an old home. However, it could be a problem if you were on the main floor or if guests arrive late at night. The atmosphere is very comfortable and Holli, the owner, was great!
We stayed in the Master Bedroom, and it was wonderful--a large room with a king-sized bed, a balcony where we enjoyed our morning coffee and the view, and a bathroom-to-die for: heated tile floors, a large shower with a rain shower head, and a big claw-footed bathtub. The innkeeper has done a lovely job of restoring this beautiful, old home and is very attentive to detail--little extras, like a Kuerig coffee station outside the room and water and wine glasses in the room and keyless entry, made for an especially pleasant stay. Breakfast was delicious and ample, and its presentation was very attractive. We were completely satisfied and hope to be back!
This was our first visit to Rosedell B & B, we had a wonderful night's stay. Very comfortable and charming. Lovely old home, beautifully restored. Holli has done a great job on the house. Breakfast was delicious. We would definitely stay here again.
Shirley is a treasure. A marvelous host and human being. The setting is spectacular In an apple orchard. Our second stay. Food is marvelous fresh and delicious. We travel a lot a.d highly recommend shirley and her inn. See you soon shirley ! Mark Driscoll
Stayed 3 nights August 2014 in the Master Suite. Landmark old building sat empty for years and beautifully restored by the owner, Holli, herself. Yes, she is a master trades woman as well as B&B owner. Wonderful breakfasts, peaceful balcony retreat perfect for end of day glass of wine. Highly recommended. David & Jennifer
Didn't find anyone to help with check in until end if day. Very nice and attentive when we did. The house is original inside. The wallpaper and furniture looked to be the original from when the house was built. Museum quality and preservation of Victorian Era decor and furniture. Found he overall wallpaper, colors and furnishing to be dark and too depressing for my personal tastes, so I didn't think it was that pretty. My friends thought it was great looking inside. Stairs are super steep on the side if the house, so pull in the front to load and unload luggage before parking car in back. Located in lovely neighborhood and had a great morning walk. Quiet and restful sleep in comfortable bed. Breakfast was outstanding. Overall a very comfortable and peaceful stay.
