Fantastic experience

5 on October 23, 2013

This is the best bed & breakfast I've ever stayed at. I loved the house... I enjoyed the huge Jackson Suite and sitting outside on the veranda. It was very neat to be able to kick off my shoes and make myself comfortable in a place like this. What really put the experience over the top, though, was the current owners' incredible customer service. They truly understand outstanding customer service down to the smallest detail. They've thought of everything and they're wonderful people. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to stay in or as a location for a wedding.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the outstanding review! It is humbling and much appreciated. I am very sorry that I am just now getting to the response. I did not realize this site had reviews! I will in the future be on top of them. We are thrilled you enjoyed the Jackson Suite and that we were able to meet your needs. We hope you can stay again. Thanks again and all the best to you!

“Unterbringung und Frühstück”

5 on September 06, 2012

Alles war ausgezeichnet: die großzügigen, historisch und liebevoll sowie sorgfältig eingerichteten Zimmer erwecken den Eindruck, man sei nicht Gast, sondern ständiger Bewohner. Klasse war, dass wir trotz sehr später Ankunft mit Kaffee, Tee und anderen Getränken versorgt wurden! Das Inhaber-Ehepaar ist überaus freundlich und sehr an deutschen Gästen interessiert. Außerdem hat auch das Frühstück 5-Sterne Niveau, und bietet neben Säften und frischem Obst ausgezeichnete Eiergerichte . Ein Aufenthalt in diesem typischen Südstaaten-Mansion ist ein absolutes Must, wenn man Augusta, das Golf-Mekka der USA, besucht. It´s a real highlight!!!

Elegant Inn

5 on April 30, 2012

This stately inn is a magnificent jewel located within five minutes of the Savannah River and downtown Augusta, Ga. The furnishings are opulent--a throwback to the era depicted in The Great Gatsby--yet the atmosphere was very relaxing, helped in no small part by owners Kelly and Diana Combs. They struck the perfect balance between being helpful and attentive to our needs and affording us our own time and space. A perfect visit.

The most personable in Augusta, both in house and service

5 on January 25, 2012

The house itself is absolutely amazing. Coming from Charleston, SC, it truly had us feeling as if we were back home. Well, back home visiting someone else's beautiful home. We stayed in the Carolina Suite which afforded my wife and I to wake up to an absolutely beautiful sunrise while laying in the bed which was equipped with a fantastic mattress warmer. The rest of the house offers just as much, with each room being so unique, and the Innkeepers, Kelly and Diana letting you know the history behind them. I highly recommend leaving some time to get a tour of the house with them. For those of you that like history, particularly of the South and all the drama it can bring, go for a little tour. The most unique BnB that we could find in Augusta, outside of it's sister inn the Lookaway, so look no further if you are a BnB fan.

Rosemary Inn a special place

5 on January 10, 2012

Rosemary Inn is a special place. The way we found this beautiful place was something also special. When we arrived to stay for one night we felt that this place was for staying for more time. The rooms are very beautiful, elegant and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, and consisted of home made waffles, which were the best we've ever had. The owners Kelly and Diana are special pleople too and when we heard all the history of this place we felt more than interested in going again and getting to know more of this place and this beautiful city. Kelly and Diana we hope this december, in our next trip to the mountains we are going to stay with you for 2 nights. Thanks for the special attentions you gave us. Eduardo and Lourdes Fernandez Miami, Fl

Our stay very relaxing & I loved hearing the history of the house.
