Why would anyone stay in a cookie-cutter motel room with polyester sheets and a plastic spoon for your cold cereal in the morning? For about the same price, the Royal Rose offers gracious decor, inviting rooms, fine linens, and a breakfast that can't be beat. It has been completely remodeled from an elegant hundred-year-old home near the lakeshore. Each room is furnished in antiques, and has a unique theme. Unlike many B&B's, each room has its own private bath (even a whirlpool!). Breakfasts are served in multiple courses, on fine china, with real silverware. Best of all, the hosts, Gilbert and Rosemary, are wonderful people. They are engaging, and go out of their way to make one feel at home. We are looking forward to our next visit!
