It was a crisp fall day when we checked into the Rosemont Manor. We chose the Nixon suite because of its larger size and a sun porch. The room was quite nice except for the rather bad Nixon portrait and a few stink bugs. I guess we will have to choose a different room next time.
After unpacking we explored some of the other rooms which had yet to be occupied. All were very well decorated with themes based upon historical figures who had visited the Manor.
In the late afternoon, we were treated to wine, cheese and other snacks.
The town of Berryville has some very good places to eat or one could drive a few miles more to Winchester for a broader selection.
That night we were quite pleased with the comfort of the queen sized bed and slept very well.
The next morning we had a great breakfast which included three ginger pancakes with a dollop of vanilla yogurt topped with apple-butter jam, link sausage and baked apples. Yum-Yum.
In our package we were given passes to three nearby boutique wineries; each with their own variety of grapes and ways of creating some interesting wines. Rosemont also packed us a picnic basket lunch including a chicken wrap, chips, apple, cookies, bottled water and wine. Because of the excellent weather, we were able to enjoy a wonderful lunch on the road in a very scenic area of Virginia.
There is no television, so we brought reading material to enjoy before going to bed.
Breakfast the next morning included half of a pear accented with Devonshire cream, three cheese omelet, Canadian bacon and corn muffins. The service both mornings was outstanding.
We also were very pleased with all the other staff at the Rosemont.
This was a nice getaway with many interesting things to do or not do.
