Immaculate and Serene

5 on August 23, 2015

This was our first stay at the RoseMary Inn, and we were delighted! First and most important, the place is spotless! The common rooms, the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, patio were pristine! No stains, no spots, no dirty grout. Honestly, the place is immaculate! Our hosts, Theo and Elaine, are wonderful, always available but not hovering. We really enjoyed Theo's tales as a teen in Amsterdam. Next, the breakfast was plentiful and scrumptious, huge fruit cocktail and an excellent quiche-like dish with the crust, filled with fresh veggies. I wish I had asked about the coffee, it was the best I've had in years. The grounds are beautifully manicured and the patio overlooking the pond is comfortable and inviting. We booked this inn because our regular inn was unavailable. From now on this is our first choice when we are in the area. It costs a little more and it's worth it. Everything was PERFECT! Thanks, Theo and Elaine for a great weekend getaway! We stayed in the Heiss room, at the top of the stairs. It was quiet, well decorated, comfortable, and had a fantastic shower. I recommend this room and will request it in the future.


A luxury experience

4.6 on March 28, 2015

The B&B is beautiful - modern style with and antique flair. Not stuffy at all & very clean! The innkeepers are very friendly & are available without being overbearing. The rooms and the inn are very comfortable and welcoming. Breakfast is hearty and delicious, with high quality ingredients. The area is amazingly quiet with its proximity to the highway. Would definitely recommend to someone looking for a luxury stay.


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!

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

5 on February 26, 2012

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.


"Simply Breathtaking"

First time at a B&B and I have to say that it just blew me away!!! The hospitality of Elaine and Theo was outstanding! The breakfast in the morning so delicous and the presentation to beautiful to eat! From the snacks and beverages which are provided to the many different teas and coffees to the movies and books you can enjoy in the study. Also the scenery is soooo beautiful, so much to see and do.We will be back again. Donna & Mike


Where nature and comfort surround you...

..is an under statement when it comes to describing this B&B. What wonderful hosts!! I needed a place that provided peace & quiet to study for multiple IT certification exams. My only regret was choosing such a BEAUTIFUL place during the peak of fall and having to fight the urge to be outside hiking in the mountains. I can honestly say the RoseMary Inn contributed to my success in PASSING all 3 of my exams!!!! I will definitely be returning next time with my wonderful supportive husband!


A beautiful oasis near a beautiful river

4.8 on July 31, 2011

Having not been to the Delaware Water Gap before, we were excited to check out the river and the surrounding area. The Rosemary Inn definitely stood out amongst all of the other surrounding B&B websites when it came to picture appeal. Upon arriving, it surely did not disappoint us, and if anything, exceeded our expectations that we formed based on the reviews on this website. The hosts were such a delight, greeting us at the front door and reviewing the property with such detail that one could tell how truly committed they are to providing their guests with a comfortable and relaxing time while at the Inn. The house has wonderful character and the property is truly beautiful, including the stars on a clear night which were vivid. The back porch is set to a backdrop of the pond and fountain which was a wonderful spot for a good read. Our bedroom was top notch. Having stayed at many bed and breakfasts this is definitely one of the nicest we have stayed at (and we tend to only stay at those with a more "modern/sophisticated" appeal than the more traditional Victorian style. The breakfast as commented on was scrumptious; our favorite was the homemade peach coffee cake. We would highly recommend the Rosemary Inn to all wishing to find peace and tranquility near a beautiful part of this region.
