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!
