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"

These folks run a very nice B&B! Our room was gorgeous, although the bathroom was quite small (due to renovation which probably split the plumbing from one bathroom to allow for two, I suspect). The proprietors were friendly and accommodating, helping us find dining options and bike trails, and waiting for us when we arrived for check in several hours behind schedule. The scheduled breakfast is 5 star itself, but the 9 am scheduled seating time was a little later than we prefer. The porch has two swings and lots of comfy seating options. Parking is a little tight if they are full, which they were the second night we stayed. Overall, very nice place with wonderful service.

The Rosehill Inn is the place you want to stay in Wilmington, only a couple of blocks from Front Street dining and shops, a gourmet breakfast that the owners make from scratch, and their hospitality is second to none! The Inn itself is a historic home with all of the modern conveniences and antique furnishings, superbly maintained, and very reasonably priced, I think the best value in Wilmington for the accommodations. We will be back many times to enjoy this perfect getaway, thanks to the Milton's for being excellent hosts!

This place was amazing, we didn't want to leave. The attention to detail these owners have is beyond amazing. I am very particular where I stay and I can't say enough about how clean this Bed and Breakfast was. The Owners were very accommodating with every little thing we needed. I requested ice one evening in the room and there was ice every evening in our room when we came in for the night. We left early this morning to catch our flight so we told them last night we couldn't make breakfast, they both were up this morning to see us off and handed us a hot egg sandwich plus a brown paper bag with lots of goodies for our trip home. I will always stay in this Bed and Breakfast anytime we are close to Wilmington. Wonderful accommodations and close to every thing.

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!!!!

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

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.

We recently spent two nights at the Rosehill Inn and were very pleased with the accomodations. The only disappointment we experienced was the parking for this location is very limited to small vehicles. We could not park our full sized vehicle in the off-street parking provided by the inn. (it barely fit in the alley between houses) However, the innkeeper allowed us to park next door temporarily until street parking was available. The inn was easy walking distance to the riverfront attractions and restuarants. The breakfasts were quite delicious and served hot and ontime. Our room was very clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. We will recommend to anyone planning a trip to this location!
