Kay, the longtime manager for the B&B, is absolutely fabulous. The breakfasts that she made were simply wonderful and her hospitality and courtesy is top-notch. I stayed in Beatrice's Room and it was a charming and comfortable room. There were a number of fabulous options at the Rose Mansion, though, that can accommodate additional family members. Everything was clean and... More

We went overnight for a shopping getaway and stayed in one of the cabins. It was perfectly adequate with period furnishings and a comfortable bed. The grounds are quiet and peaceful and the owner was very gracious. The breakfast was substantial and very tasty. All in all a pleasant stay and I would recommend the Rose Mansion.

My daughter and I stayed in "Callie's Room". This was her first and my second stay at the Rose Mansion. They offer lovely, clean accommodations in historic buildings. The inn keeper was so friendly and made us feel truly welcome. And breakfast was SO GOOD! The breakfast here was the best part of our trip to Salado! Thanks again Rose... More

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend getaway in the Sharecroppers Cottage. It is 100 year old cottage sitting behind the main house at Rose Mansion. Lots of history on the property which is super neat. Miss Kay was a wonderful hostess. Super friendly, welcoming, a wonderful cook and keeps everything really clean. I didn't see one bug the...

We have been to many B&Bs in Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma and we find that the thing that makes a good experience for us is getting to visit with he innkeeper and the guests. Both were wonderful at the Rose Mansion. The house has an interesting history and is well maintained and the grounds and cabins are lovely. We stayed... More

I'm quite the history buff, so when traveling to visit my son and his family at Fort Hood, I thought I would look for a bed and breakfast with character. I found it! We stayed in a log cabin that had been built in 1855. It was one room, but had a loft with stairs and a bathroom. It was... More

Visited the Rose Mansion on a get away... Had a great time on one of the cabins and enjoyed a great breakfast on the main house. The manager was a nice lady who offered us any help we could need to make our stay as wonderful as possible. Had the great visit of a deer early morning, unforgettable experience!

George's Log Cabin was fabulous. We had a great time reading on the front porch, while enjoying a bottle of wine and looking out over the small field while the deer strolled by. Kay was wonderful and the breakfast was fantastic!

We stayed in the Garrison Cabin and it was nice, relaxing and peaceful. Kay was wonderful taking care of guests food requests and being a wonderful host. We were able to peek into most rooms/cabins before other guests checked in and I think mine and the Sharecroppers was my favorite. Had some extra space. The only thing I would suggest... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled among towering oaks, elms and persimmon trees, this traditional Greek Revival style mansion, complimentary cottages and log cabins are located on two acres of landscaped grounds surrounded by a picturesque picket fence. The grounds offer a mini tour of early Texas dwellings. Texas markers and one National Register marker attest to the authenticity of the Rose Mansion, two beautifully restored log cabins, a summer kitchen cottage and a larger Greek Revival cottage. The main home, built in 1870 by Major A.J. Rose, has four bedrooms (three have fireplaces), a grand parlour, an elegant dining room and a cozy country kitchen. The mansion is complimented with Rose family memorabilia and authentic antiques. A windmill with a cypress storage tank, a rock smoke house and an old wagon are nostalgic reminders of the past. Shaded seating areas, swings and hammocks located across the grounds compliment these accommodations. No wonder the Mansion was featured in the June 1996, February and November 1999 issues of Southern Living Magazine! ... more   less
