Rosendale Inn Bed and Breakfast

17917 Farmhouse Lane , New Market, VA 22844 USA (Show map)


Welcome to Rosendale Inn, a historic Shenandoah Valley bed and breakfast lodging located midway between New Market and Harrisonburg and just 15 minutes from Luray. Since 1790, Rosendale has graciously hosted presidents, their first ladies, foreign ministers, aviation pioneers, explorers, and celebrities. Celebrating over 200 years of hospitality, Innkeepers Paul Murphy and Juanita Miller take pride in faithfully preserving “the Rosendale tradition” for their 21st Century guests. In the heart of Virginia’s wine country (eight vineyards 10-20 minutes away) and central to Endless, Shenandoah and Luray Caverns, the New Market Civil War Museum and Battlefield, Skyline Drive, and more, Rosendale promises history, beauty, serenity, nature, and an abundance of things to do. We receive dozens of calls a year from people asking how far our Inn is from Luray. Did you know that we are only 15 minutes or so from the underground wonders of the Caverns, the Shenandoah National Park, and the breathtaking views and hiking opportunities along Skyline Drive?
