Nestled in a sea and country setting, the Rose Farm Inn is situated on a hill a short walk from town and island beaches. This historic 20-acre farm offers two handsome buildings, the original 1897 Farm House and the Captain Rose House. Bordered by stone walls and flower gardens, the inn’s two houses host Victorian parlors with wet bar. Gracious rooms are decorated individually with old fashioned wallpapers and romantically furnished with antiques, some with canopy beds. All offer ocean or country views; some have whirlpool tubs and separate decks. One favorite room offers a king canopy bed and dramatic views from two windows, one looking north to town and Crescent Beach, the other looking east to the Atlantic Ocean. Another favorite room has a king canopy bed, in-room whirlpool for two, and a separate deck that looks out over the farm, which is home to marsh hawks, ring-neck pheasant, and white-tail deer. In fall, the Canada geese stop by on their migration south, and the Gulf Stream warms the ocean so beaches and swimming are favorites for September and early October. The island’s songbirds and sunsets can easily be enjoyed from the Farm House’s grand deck. Guests may rent bicycles from the inn’s Beach Rose Bicycles. Biking is the best way to see the 9½ square mile island, with its walking trails, secluded coves, and historic landmarks, including two lighthouses.

Been to Rose Farm 3 times. We love it more each time. First of all the rooms could not be more clean. The staff is so willing to help for whatever your needs might be. You are walking distance from town, just far enough away to have absolute peace and quiet. The grounds are immaculate. Peter at the bicycle shop is terrific. Breakfast is adequate and what you might expect for a middle of the road continental breakfast. You are close to 2 wonderful hotels for sunset cocktails - The Spring House and The Atlantic. Other fine restaurants are walking distance as well. Great place and value.

Rose Farm is a calm retreat offering a quaint atmosphere with comfortable furnishings, conveniently located close to town. Mrs Rose makes you feel right at home with wonderful beautifully landscaped views. Each room is furnished with fine antiques transforming you back to a quieter time. No need to bring a bike, Rose Farm has it's own bike rental facility right on the premises, Beach Rose Bicycles. We have been returning for years and always have a great vacation experience.
