Beautiful and comfortable

The Rosemary Inn is on a beautiful piece of land that is well maintained. Your surrounded by nature. Both Theo and Elaine are gracious hosts and more than willing to accommodate your every need! Cookies and breakfast are a must!

Most Relaxing Place I Have Ever Stayed!

Not your typical B&B - Home away from Home!

We've stayed at the Rosemary Inn three times - each time was wonderful and memorable for us. Our first visit was for Valentine's day in 2010 - we stayed in the Beach Room that contains a jacuzzi tub and stunning views of the grounds from our room. We took advantage of the ski package and were able to head over to the nearby Shawnee mountain during the day, while coming back to the comforts of the Rosemary Inn for a hot bowl of soup! What a great way to end the day and with such hospitable/welcoming innkeepers. This is not like your typical B&B -the Rosemary Inn is equipped with all the modern accessories and decor that you might desire. Our second visit was in the Hahn Room and this by far was the most special of our trips as it was on this visit that my fiance and I became engaged. It couldn't have been a better get a way on a most momentous occasion! Our most recent visit was to have our engagement photo session on property in honor of the locale where we officially began our future together! I can't say enough of how delicious the food is, very comfortable atmosphere - a feel of being at home while away from home, and lastly just how great of a stay you will have! Near by you have horseback riding, wineries for wine tasting, the wolf preserve and much more. We hope to come back time and time again and encourage you to do the same as you can't go wrong with this Bed & Breakfast!

Recent Stay

My family recently experienced a tramatic time with the loss of a family member. The location was near the RoseMary bed and breakfast. When the owners, Theo and Elaine, heard about it they went over and above to offer assistance and made sure we had a place to stay. The rooms were perfect, the study gave my family a nice place to gather. Their hospitality was off the charts. We have stayed at various bed and breakfast locations and this was by far the best. Thank you Theo and Elaine.
