This is a perfect place for any history lover! The innkeepers, Walt and Jean, have thoroughly researched and documented the property and it's history is absolutely fascinating. While the antiques in the home are not original to the property, they are of the period, and beautiful. The deer and other wildlife, seen both evening and morning, from the upstairs porch... More

Vistors to Mississippi in search of a relaxing retreat at an historic antebellum home should find their way to Lorman, Mississippi -- just a few miles off the Natchez Trace -- to the Rosswood Plantation. This is a lived-in property that evokes both a homey coziness and the splendor of a time gone by. For history buffs, the diary of... More

This is the most wonderful B&B we have ever stayed in...we've been there several times & will return again when we can. Walt & Jean are warm & wonderful hosts & we absolutely LOVE this place. It is a journey back in time, for sure. ♥

The home is amazing, a must see. Plan to spend a good amount of time here for the tour. Walt gives a lot of history of the home before the house tour. We were on a schedule and had to leave without hearing all of the history and Jean did give us a tour of the home. Both Walt and... More

I felt like I had truly stepped back in time visiting this gorgeous home of Colonel Walt Hylander and his beautiful wife Jean. Learning the history of the original owner when it was a 1250 acre plantation was so interesting. But Jean and Walt have made the Rosswood Mansion their home since 1975. Jean shares wonderful stories about the amazing... More

Five star breakfast. Seriously - I've eaten at lots of inns and B&B's and this was absolutely the best breakfast!! The room was excellent, very comfortable, and we experienced a good southern thunderstorm from the comfort of the wicker seats on the second floor porch. Great experience~

Your breath is almost taken as you drive by the white fence and then see the house off in the distance. As you drive up the long drive towards the home, you feel like you are going back in time to the antebellum South. Mrs. Jean is a gracious lady and her son gave us a wonderful historic review of...

We had rooms 2 and 4 last Friday night. Ms. Peggy greeted us with enthusiasm and hospitality when we arrived and prepared an amazing breakfast for us the next morning! It will be one that I never forget. I felt like royalty. The Hylander's were also gracious and the house is beautiful. The view from the upstairs balcony in the... More

We reached the Rosswood plantation on our road trip on September 22nd at around noon. It was a lovely, sunny sunday. Great weather. We wanted to take a tour, as stated in our tour guide and at the entrance of the plantation, but after waiting for a good 45 minutes, we knew nobody would come. Just shortly after we arrived,...

I have had the pleasure of staying in many B&Bs but Rosswood was exceptional. It wasn't so much the accomodations as the people. Mr. Walt gave me a very long tour which I loved. He loaned me one of the diaries to read that night and was just so gracious! Ms. Jean was a lovely Lady and we talked for... More
