About

Welcome to the Rosehill Inn, located in the heart of Wilmington's historic district. This beautiful house was built in 1848 by Henry Russell Savage, a prominent Wilmington businessman and banker. It was also the home of Henry Bacon, Jr., architect of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Rosehill Inn has been meticulously restored as an elegant, yet comfortable, bed and breakfast with an appealing mix of historic craftsmanship, antiques, fine fabrics and beautiful gardens. Each of the large, luxurious guest rooms has been individually designed and decorated. The amenities in each room include a private bath, cable TV, downy-soft comforter, large fluffy towels, and plush robes. Step outside and be surrounded by the Victorian charm of Wilmington's renovated riverfront. The historic district provides abundant opportunities for fine dining, outstanding entertainment, and unique shopping. The sparkling blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, wide beaches, and world-class golf courses are within a 20 minute drive from the inn. Rosehill was awarded AAA three diamond award and Historic Wilmington Foundation interior restoration award in 1996. "This no ordinary B&B"

Great b & b

5 on March 16, 2012

Joe and Pat., we stayed at the Rosehill Inn, recently, and everything was outstanding. It is in a great location with restaurants, shops, and attractions just steps away. The inn keepers make every effort to ensure that their guests are comfortable. We have stayed at a lot of b and bs Over the years and the breakfast served here was the best. We'll be back!!!!


Wonderful Visit at Rosehill !!

The Rosehill is one of the most relaxing and charming B&B's we have ever been to. Although the inn itself is wonderful, it is the innkeepers Bob and Tricia who make you feel special and welcome. Service is A+ and breakfast is a treat in itself. Staying at the Rosehill Inn should be on everyone's "A" list. Jimmie & Elvia Lucas


Better than Mary Poppins: Perfect in Every Way

5 on December 30, 2010

The Miltons are warm and accommodating innkeepers. The property itself is a stately one on one of Wilmington's most beautiful historic-district streets. Every public and guest room is impressively designed and impeccably appointed with beautifully selected antiques; the rooms have various themes that are tastefully handled in coordinated designs. The attention to detail - thick terry bathrobes, superior soaps and creams, the absolute cleanliness of the rooms - is apparent throughout your stay. The photos are wonderful, but don't do the physical beauty of the house and its rooms sufficient justice. But for all the beauty of Rosehill and its central location and the graciousness of its innkeepers, what may be the most remarkable aspect of our experience - and we are repeat visitors - are the spectacular breakfasts that are a staple at the inn. Many B&B offerings include the word "gourmet." Rosehill delivers on that promise, in quantity and variety, with imaginative preparations of traditional American breakfast fare from the freshest fruit, eggs, breakfast meats from specialty-craft provisioners, breads and toasts, juices, and coffees and teas. We've been B&Bing for decades and Rosehill is far and away our favorite place to stay when we're on the road.

Owners are all friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Feels like being pampered in a grand home from another era - quite fitting in a visit to the historic district of Wilmington. The breakfasts were delicious and I loved starting the day with the other guests at such a fine meal.

If you have ever wondered what true southern hopitality is like, spend a few days here with the Miltons! Even in the midst of the wonderful antique surroundings, it felt like we were at home with family. The breakfasts were absolutely fantastic! Couldn't ask for more.
