“True Southern Charm with History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

My husband and I stopped here on our way back down from Vermont. While we only stayed one night, the experience made me wish we had stayed longer. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a friendly history buff who made us feel welcome. I enjoy all that historical background, so I was enthralled and kept him talking. My husband....not so much. We stayed at the Johnson Suite on the second floor. It had an attached bathroom which was small but still provided everything we needed. I believe most of the rooms are on the second floor. I saw one room on the first floor, so if you have bad knees this may pose a problem for you. My favorite part of the stay: watching the fire works from the huge porch on the rocking chairs. The breakfast itself was too sugary for my taste (some sort of pan cakes with berries) but the presentation was excellent (I don't buy expensive china but I do appreciate it when I get to use it elsewhere!). This is a lovely plantation property.

Thank you so much for your feedback and thank you for choosing Rosemont for your lodging as you travelled down from Vermont. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! There is a lot of history available to learn about the manor, for those who are interested, and it sounds like you took good advantage of that. We are also pleased that you received friendly service and enjoyed your room.

To clarify, we do have two options for guests needing first-floor accommodations: The Roosevelt Suite, which is the one you saw on the main floor of the main right near the entrance, and also the Byrd's Nest Honeymoon Cottage, which is a separate structure just across the driveway from the main manor.

Again, thank you for your review and we hope you will come back and see us again soon!

Warmly,
William "Biff" Genda

We stayed three nights at Rosemont and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was one the smallest in the house but more than comfortable with a comfortable queen size bed and a spacious private bathroom. Our bathroom didn't include a shower head with the claw foot tub, but we didn't miss it. The staff is kind and attentive. The food was excellent and the portions are NOT small. The grounds and setting are stunning. Waking and awaiting breakfast service early in the morning became a routine of sitting in one of the rocking chairs on the porch enjoying the sun rising above the Blue Ridge Mountains. The perfect way to start a day of visiting the nearby vineyards. This truly was like being the guest in someones elegant home. We had a most enjoyable time and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: All rooms have private baths, but some rooms do not include showers with the bathtubs.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your 3-night stay at Rosemont! We are glad that you were able to relax and enjoy the scenery of the northern Shenandoah Valley. Thank you for your feedback as well that you felt the breakfast portion size to be substantial, and that the room, bathroom, and customer service were all top-notch.

We're glad you didn't miss the hand-held shower head in the Harriman room/bathroom. All of the other rooms in the manor have either a full shower or a hand-held shower wand, but due to the layout of the Harriman bath, and the historic nature of that particular clawfoot tub, that one bathroom is the exception!

Again, thank you for your gracious review and we look forward to having you come for a visit again soon!

The Rosemont Manor is like staying at a beautiful southern plantation with a large study, living room, dining room, grand staircase, and huge portico with an expansive, beautiful view. There are many books and a few games, but no TVs to disturb the quiet atmosphere. The Einstein Room had a comfortable queen bed, with a large bathroom and double head shower. Although the dining room was a great setting for breakfast and the service was excellent, the food served was average and portions were small. All facilities were immaculate. Overall our one night stay was a wonderful, relaxing experience in a unique setting.

Thank you so much for your gracious review! We are so glad that you enjoyed a relaxing, peaceful retreat at Rosemont. We do our best to offer the best in southern hospitality - after all, Rosemont was a private home for 200 years, and we want all our guests to feel at home as well.

Thank you for your feedback about the portion size for breakfast. This is something we revisit often. Sometimes, we hear from folks that their "bellies are full" and so to reduce waste, we try not to serve too much. But we most definitely want our guests to feel that they got enough, so we appreciate the feedback and will take this into consideration as we plan our upcoming menus. We encourage future guests to discuss this with your server or our house chef while you are here at Rosemont, as well.

Again, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, and we hope that you will come back and see us soon!

Sincerely,
William "Biff" Genda

On Sunday,July 7, 2013, I had the pleasure of attending a tea held at Rosemont Manor with friends. It was a wonderful experience. The owner, Mr Genda welcomed us and gave us a tour of the historic house and grounds. He explained the history of the house and showed us many of the trees and flowers on the property. He was so kind and made us feel so welcomed. The tea was grand! The teas, the food, the ambience were presented in such a lovely way. Tona, the Rosemont chef, did a wonderful job of explaining the the different finger sandwiches, scones and ice cream that were served to us, as well as telling us how she made them! They were delicious. Jonathan, the owner's son, came around to each table and showed us the artifacts that had been found on the property many from the civil war. His presentaion was top notch. Playing the grand piano in the living room was Ben ( another son of Mr. Genda) the music was just the extra touch to make the experience special. After the tea we were able to tour the guest rooms that were not occupied. What a treat! Beautiful, simply beautiful.Mr. Genda even showed us a two way mirror in the Kennedy Room bathroom. I will not give the explanation away, but do ask about it when you visit. Do visit the Rosemont Manor for an afternoon tea or an overnight. It is an amazing place and Mr. Genda and his staff go out of their way to make you feel special. Top notch in every respect!

Spent a delightful afternoon at Rosemont Manor enjoying a "Tea & Tour" package. The grounds are incredibly beautiful at any season; the food was delicious and the Manor is impeccably furnished & tastefully decorated. There couldn't be a better place for any event -- whether a simple afternoon tea, bed & breakfast, or wedding. Highly highly recommend you check it out!!!

We just returned from a beautiful wedding at Rosemont Manor. From walking through the front door, we were treated royally by the staff. The rooms were lovely and so nice to relax in while waiting for the festivities to begin. The bride and her party had lovely large rooms to get ready and of course in a beautiful manor like Rosemont the photo opportunities were amazing. Several of the family members stayed overnight which was so nice to all be under one roof and have such beautiful rooms to retreat to. The ceremony was breathtaking with the large porch for cocktails and appetizers and then going down to the carriage house for the reception was wonderful. Food, drink and overall atmosphere made for a wonderful day for us (family of the flower girl) and I can only imagine the memories it made for the families of the bride and groom. Looking forward to coming back to Rosemont for a quiet weekend retreat or family reunion!
Thank you, Rosemont.

We used a Travelzoo special to stay at the Rosemont Manor for my birthday weekend. The entire place is beautiful. We upgraded to a suite which I highly recommend, but all of the rooms are nice. The rooms also look exactly like they do on the website. It's not like a lot of places where you arrive to find that the pictures on the website were clearly taken a decade earlier. The service was great, everyone was friendly, we had a very relaxing stay. Berryville is in the middle of nowhere, but if you do a little research ahead of time there are fun things to do in the area. The C&O canal towpath was a great place to ride bikes and we had planned on going canoeing had it not rained. The nearby town of Winchester is worth a visit. They have a pedestrian mall with some shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: I believe most of the rooms have tubs with a handheld shower (I believe there is another review that...
