Amy: Our 2nd stay at your inn was every bit enjoyable as the first. The room was light, airy and delightful. The breakfasts were excellent. We especially enjoyed the Parmesan cheese "baskets". Thank you and your staff for your hospitality, and we hope to see you again. Rosalie and Mac.


Another perfect stay at Rookwood Inn
