You begin a journey back in time upon arriving at Rosemont Manor. The sweet smell of boxwood greets you as your scroll to the carriage house for check in of the house tour and afternoon tea. We were greeted by a young man dressed in a suit and tie offering a "fizzy" to relax by while watching wedding photos and historical figures once present at Rosemont. After check in you are escorted by the owner to the main house for a house tour. My friend got caught in traffic coming from DC so we missed the before tea house tour and went straight to the tea but were promised, several times, an"after tea tour". The offering of tea, sandwich bites and sweets were elegant and tasty! The chef was introduce and talked about the fusion of fresh mint herbs used for the mint custard (OMG- TDF)! The service as impressive as the decor and landscape. The owner has done his home work offering historical information as well tidbits on owning this incredible Virginia historical property. There is a genuine down to earth appeal of this family and the service they and the staff are offering. There was no presure and guests are encouraged to walk the property and enjoy the wonderful peace Rosemont is. I never would have guessed such a treasure lie in my own backyard. Kudos to the owners for taking that leap of faith and investing in a remarkable part of Virginia history but better yet, representing "service" the old fashion way - one person at a time. I love this place and look forward to booking a room stay for my anniversary.
