A respite for many US Presidents and celebrities, a private get-a-way for the Washington DC elite, comparable to Mount Vernon and Monticello in many aspects, only a 40-minute drive from the Washington-Dulles Airport in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Now after 200 years, Historic Rosemont Manor is opened to the public for overnight lodging, breakfast, and catered events. An elegant B&B property on a 60-acre park-like setting, Rosemont is the previous estate of the late Virginia Governor and US Senator Harry F. Byrd, Sr. The historic manor house boasts twelve well-appointed suites and guestrooms with private baths, and magnificent views. Experience true Southern hospitality in the same elegant surroundings as did Presidents Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon.

Upon arriving we were greeted at the front desk by a lovely young lady who showed us to our room and briefly gave us a tour of the unoccupied rooms for our viewing..a ladies "afternoon tea event" was taking place and the area was full of hustle and bustle, yet we were made to feel welcomed and special..we were given options for the afternoon and then welcomed back for the "wine and cheese social" early evening..we sat under a large tree with our wine in hand and reading material, very comfortable and enjoyable..the staff was great and the accomodations met our expectations..

My husband & I recently spent 2 nights at the Rosemont, and it was absolutely lovely! Upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff, and were welcomed w/a wine & cheese reception. Accomodations were very nice - we stayed in one of the larger suites (the Eisenhower), which featured a confy bed, 2 love seats, and a private bath w/a claw foot soaking tub. We found the historic aspect of the inn to be faciniating. Such a peaceful & relaxing place, and the view from the grand portico was magnificent! We were served coffee a delicious b'fast each morning, which was prepared by the chef. She was very kind, and even spent time walking around to each guest to ensure that we were happy w/our meal. The inn offered us tickets for wine tastings at 2 different wineries, which was a lot of fun. And the inn's staff was more than happy to offer suggestions for dining, as well as various area activities. The only negative thing about this trip was that we were sad when it was time to leave! My husband & I are already looking fwd to our next trip to Rosemont! d:-)

Really loved this beautiful home. A nice getaway with beautiful surroundings. Breakfast was amazing. The only annoyance were the stinkbugs. Would go back again.

Overall, we had a very nice experience at Rosemont Manor. The grounds and the building were lovely. We were pleased to be able to upgrade to a larger room with a small balcony we could open for fresh air. Luckily, I had a small electric fan as the rooms do not have ceiling fans. We had originally reserved the Einstein Room It was too small for my comfort and I am certainly glad we upgraded. The staff we had dealings with at Rosemont Manor were very good. The breakfast frittata did not meet the expectations described on the menu. The fruit presentation was very nice. We had to ask for jam or apple butter to accompany the meal. The coffee served with breakfast was not hot. All in all, it was a very pleasant get-a-way.

Rosemont is set in a beautiful area. Expect your stay to be fun and filled with antique stores, history and rolling hills. We visited several of the nearby towns and enjoyed several different restaurants. The Manor's chef creates wonderful breakfasts sure to incite your taste buds. The only thing I caution is that many of the stores are only open Friday-Sunday or have limited hours so plan accordingly.

Everything was great, very romantic. Don't be too worried about the stink bugs! they didn't bother us much and there is a disclaimer at the back of the brochure about them. Also, bath was nice, but we wanted to take a quick shower after a bath but the water was cold. O well. Everything else was perfect, bfast was super good :)
Thank you for visiting Rosemont and thanks for your review! We are so sorry about the water temperature - that is unusual but we encourage guests to let us know so we can work to rectify the problem. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and delicious breakfast, too! Come see us again soon.

Very cute. We went at Christmas time and the decorations were feet. The staff was nice and the tea was fun. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you for your review and thank you for coming to see us for the holidays! Be sure to come back in the spring or summer and enjoy seeing Rosemont "in bloom"!
