Rose Garden review

What a lovely home near downtown Weatherford! Very clean, spacious and the lovely scent of roses in every room. We certainly enjoyed our stay.

Invasion of 5 sisters!

4.8 on May 09, 2017

My sisters and I have been having a yearly get-together since the late 1980's. Of all the places we've landed, The Rose Garden Cottage Bed and Breakfast is our favorite... so much so that we've visited there twice and plan to return next spring as well. Lee Ann and Gary are very accommodating to all our needs, and the cottage itself is not only beautifully appointed, but peaceful, relaxing and restful! We spend almost as much time outdoors there as we do inside. I have nothing but good things to say about this lovely place of respite and her proprietors!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a sweet review. We always enjoy having you for our guests and are so excited you will be back for a third time next year. You are all very delightful and we love getting to visit with you. The kitchen enjoys getting used by you all, too!

This was the 6th week we've spent at the "cottage" since March, 2015. What more do we need to say! The Gillespies are wonderful hosts, the accommodations very charming and comfortable with attention given to every detail! We will be back!

Innkeeper Response

Adorable place - feels like home

My sister, nieces, mom, and daughter (6 of us) live in all parts of Texas and decided to have a weekend together. We could not have a picked a more perfect home. There was plenty of room inside and out. Everything was super clean, the beds were very comfortable and we especially liked the jacuzzi tub to relax and let the stress melt away. Lee Ann & Gary are the nicest people to work with and they even let us bring our poodle who enjoyed exploring the nice back yard. This home is convenient to many restaurants and the Chandor Gardens which is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. Made many happy memories in The Rose Garden Cottage.

What a JEWEL! Of all the B&Bs where we have stayed, ROSE GARDEN COTTAGE is at the top of the list! Lee Ann was there to greet us and had the house all warm and cozy since the cold weather had swooped in, even a little snow. I told my friend, " I would love to live here, but I couldn't, because I could never keep the house in the beautiful condition that it is in. I'm just not that good of a house keeper." Every aspect of the house is perfect. Lee Ann has created a true piece of ART with this house. Hopefully we'll be able to return and stay longer next time.

Awesome get away!

All in all I would recommend the Rose Garden. They happily supported the youth at our church and helped them raise money for camp. The master bedroom was very nice and comfortable. However, the other bed is a double bed and was not comfortable for two adults unless they are small but for one night we made it just fine. If you are a walker it is within walking distance of First Monday, shops & great food downtown. Thank you Gary & Lee Ann for your support and hospitality.

Had a wonderful time with my sisters on out yearly Sister Trip

Wonderful B&B

My sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rose Garden Cottage. The accommodations were fabulous and our hosts very accommodating and welcoming. Weatherford is a wonderful town also. Hope to come back soon!

Perfect Place for an annual sisters trip!!!

This is the ninth year the four of us have met for a weekend to catch up life's happenings, relax, play games, laugh, cry, and simply enjoy each others' company. The Rose Garden Cottage provided us with the perfect atmosphere to make this happen. The selection of antiques, the comfort of every room, the beautifully landscaped backyard, and everything we needed at our fingertips made for a perfect stay. Gary and Lee Ann, you definitely exceeded our expectations. We usually try to stay in a different place each year, but I have a feeling we will be back at the Rose Garden Cottage someday.
