“Comfort of home but a step above”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Saying a place feels like home is in my opinion the highest form of compliment. Rosewood Inn is all of that and a step above. The amenities are gracious and memorable, but it is the inn keepers that truly set the house a step above. They are professional, attentive to detail, and full of real live personality. We had such an enjoyable visit, and came home feeling rested and pampered. We will definitely go to visit Rosewood again.

The ambiance of this historical home takes you back to another era. The innkeeper is right out of the story books with her welcoming, creative personal touches and ever so pleasant with any requests. The food was fabulous. My husband who is a cook raved all day about his breakfast. The house nit picky clean.

Room Tip: They are all nice ...last time we stayed on top floor and it was quite large. Enjoyed having the add...

Nice place, with a lot of potential. However, the prices, in my opinion, do not reflect the competition. The B&B lacks much of nice details. The host is nice, but one gets almost summoned with many rules and dos and don'ts (one can get already a feeling based on the replies from the host to other reviews). The breakfast was good. would not come back

Feel very bad that this guest must not have liked my response to his or her traveling companion whose review dated September 1 gave us same rating. It is obvious this is same reviewer with same places traveled. We are sad that they were not more specific as that is how we learn and make improvements. We also feel bad they felt it necessary to give two reviews for one stay and wish we knew what rules they refer to..There are no rules here except for fireplace instructions and whirlpool instructions and tongue in cheek no running with scissors. No limit to cookies or ice cream or firewood No set time for breakfast, guest chooses,Also guest chooses where breakfast will be. No curfew, you get your own key. We again ascertain that we are not in competition with other inns and we love them all and all innkeepers too.Some of our favorite inns are those different than what we offer like log homes or train cars or yurts.Have said it before --there is nothing more important to us than our guests' comfort. We feel lucky with all your travels that we had the opportunity to serve you. We appreciate your kind words about breakfast. We wish you and your traveling companion the very best.

My husband and I were enroute from Twin Cities in Minnesota to a week in Wisconsin Dells and really needed a totally restful night where we could crash and sleep. The Rosewood Inn was just the place --. The breakfast the next morning was so delicious. We really hated to have to check out as early as we did. Our only problem was getting our luggage to the second floor on the winding, steep staircase as my husband had hip replacement surgery a year ago and still has difficulty. The gentleman host graciously took some luggage up for which we were very grateful. The only difficulty was the very small shower -- but this home is an 1880 Queen Ann style home that has been made into a Bed and Breakfast, so some things aren't going to be spacious.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this Inn!! Everything from the decor to the food to the Innkeepers themselves was exactly what you would want from a true bed and breakfast! My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and will certainly be back!! Many of the other B&Bs in the area lack the necessary Victorian charm, but not this one! The Rosewood Inn is decorated with exquisite taste and remains true from crown molding right down to the beautiful stone figurines! And don't even get me started on the food!!! The three breakfasts we enjoyed here were among the best we've ever eaten, (and we're breakfast people!) and were delivered to our room in such lovely wicker baskets! I could go on and on about this wonderful inn, but I recommend you see it for yourself!!

Thank you for a wonderful honeymoon stay!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for our getaway weekend. The innkeepers were very friendly people however the town and curb appeal were not what we expected. The room was a good price however being on a restrictive diet was very difficult. The cook tried hard to prepare appropriate food but wasn't successful.

Thank you for your comments. However we wish we would have known that efforts at meeting food requirements was not successful. We do try very hard. In fact we have offered this guest a chance for us to try again because of our guarantee on this very subject. We use local foods,most all organics and are continually trying new ideas for those with special needs so they do not have any less food or less tasty than others. (They did not indicate at breakfast or at checkout so we could have made it better right there and then) We have learned much over the years about meeting special needs and will continue to learn. Also we feel must not have given proper orientation about the uniqueness of Hastings and its wonder. Some only know it from passing through on Highway 61 and it is so much more than that. Three rivers, a beautiful waterfall, two lakes and hiking biking paths that touch all these waterways. Historic LeDuc Estate, Carpenter Nature Center, Alexis Bailly Vineyard, free outdoor concerts in summer and bountiful orchards, farm stands, historic Main Street and I could go on and on. As an innkeeper, I am not doing my job as host to the town if a guest would not be able to enjoy all this or know about it. I sincerely apologize. .

The exterior of this building is very impressive. The Victorian decor of the main floor is very nice. I kindly but honestly comment that I was mildly disappointed with the rooms (saw 3). The decoration didn't have the wow factor that other B&B's we have stayed in had (Rivertown Inn, Phipps etc). I was turned off by the hand painted animal scenes in the Solarium room. The inn keepers were welcoming and the breakfast was nice. They have ice cream, water machine etc in patio but perhaps we have been spoiled at other B&B's that have wine and cheese or other such things at check in. It was nice enough but I can't call it amazing in comparison of others in the Stillwater/Husdon area.

Thank you for your critique and also for being a B & B traveler. We are grateful for each of our guests not just because we love serving and we get to enjoy this historic town Hastings and our two grand old buildings daily but we believe each guest is aiding the preservation and new life of these places! We believe the industry in fact pays tribute to those who built them over a century ago..We also love the Rivertown Inn and Phipps Inn and personally know the owners and of their dedication to preservation and service. We are not competitors although a forum like this might lead one to believe we are. We are friends and all loyal to the industry. The benefit of having eight rooms here is that each one is unique not just in decor but in architecture. The best feature we think of the solarium is the 15 foot glass wall that vaults to 18 feet with a view of the stars on a clear night. Again what is so applaud worthy in our industry is that each inn, each room, each food offering is unique and we think special in its own light. We appreciate the incredible opportunity we have to serve in hospitality and preservation. Thank you.
