The entire stay was lovely and the breakfast prepared each morning by Kay was delicious! I definitely recommend it for a quiet rustic getaway. There are separate cabins and rooms inside the main house.

We stayed in the Alamo cabin and it was rustic and cute. The property is in a nice location - away from the main road and relatively quiet. There was a donkey braying away Friday night and it was rather humorous. However, the bed was very uncomfortable. It sags terribly and creaks so loudly we did not get a restful... More

In reading previous reviews I was skeptical about staying here. We went for the weekend and came in late Friday night, as with other B&B's in Salado we were not charged for coming late, our key and instructions were waiting for us. In previous comments they say the place is falling apart, well it IS over 100 years old. Yes... More

We booked two rooms for two nights. On Saturday morning when we went to breakfast there wasn't any food left except two canned biscuits, two dried out scrambled eggs that were cooked in muffin pans. We were informed that we should have been there at 9:00. If they had prepared enough food there would have been enough for all the... More

My family and I rented two rooms in the Chester House on March 14 & 15, 2014. The rooms were nothing like the website, as the wall paper was pealing, boards were very loose in the floor, and the rooms were dirty. Never once did we get the room service we were charged for. We ran out of toilet paper... More

My husband and I rented the Summer Kitchen cabin in November 2013 for the Scottish festival. The other B & B's at which we'd stayed on previous trips to Salado were already booked, so we weren't quite sure what to expect. Our cabin was at the front of the property near the main house, but so quite and peaceful. The... More

Birthday celebrations here for years - Donna is a great hostess and cook! The property is charming - and not just a cookie-cutter type experience. Shopping opportunities in Salado and nearby communities recommended!

My college roommate and I had a reunion at the Rose Mansion when the original owner was still tending it lovingly. It was a gem of a place, clean and beautifully decorated. Now, two owners later, the place is in a sad state. The lawn looks a mess. At first glance, Garrison cabin looked charming, however, the doorknob fell off... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled among towering oaks, elms and persimmon trees, this traditional Greek Revival style mansion, complimentary cottages and log cabins are located on two acres of landscaped grounds surrounded by a picturesque picket fence. The grounds offer a mini tour of early Texas dwellings. Texas markers and one National Register marker attest to the authenticity of the Rose Mansion, two beautifully restored log cabins, a summer kitchen cottage and a larger Greek Revival cottage. The main home, built in 1870 by Major A.J. Rose, has four bedrooms (three have fireplaces), a grand parlour, an elegant dining room and a cozy country kitchen. The mansion is complimented with Rose family memorabilia and authentic antiques. A windmill with a cypress storage tank, a rock smoke house and an old wagon are nostalgic reminders of the past. Shaded seating areas, swings and hammocks located across the grounds compliment these accommodations. No wonder the Mansion was featured in the June 1996, February and November 1999 issues of Southern Living Magazine! ... more   less
