My husband and I recently stayed at the Inn for the weekend to attend our cousins wedding. I love history and this Inn has a lot of it. We stayed in the Woodrow Wilson room. The breakfast was homemade and so good! The Inn was clean and host welcoming. The property was wonderful to walk around in the fresh fall air. The views were amazing of the mountain side and fall leaves on the trees. It was a perfect time for my husband and I to spend time together talking and reading, as there was no TV. If you want charming and relaxing, this is the place. If you want 5 star luxury, try somewhere else. For our stay, it was perfect. Thank you for your great service. We would definitely stay here again. Also, visit the Endless Caverns, it won’t disappoint either.

My family held a small get-together at a nearby KOA with our campers. It was something we wanted to do as COVID had kept us from seeing each other for our regular trips. My mom prefers to stay in lodging rather than in a camper. After evaluating the distance to Harrisburg, I thought that this nearby bed and breakfast would be a better fit. We've done this sort of thing before and she has had good experiences in the past. We went the second week of November 2020 - it was Wednesday night that we arrived at the campground and got everything set up. I called the innkeeper to let him know that we would be arriving about 8:30pm. As we were travelling to the inn, my mother asked if there would be TVs in the room - I was sure that there would be as this was a highly rated and expensive room. I will say that this place was WAY out in the middle of the woods. While making the reservation, on every call the innkeeper had asked for cash rather than a credit card. I wish we had used credit card and will never do this again. We arrived at the place went into the dimly lit main area. The entire area was very dark and there was nobody else staying at the place. We went in and my mom paid the cash as asked. It was nearly 9pm, we were tired from the day on the road, and my mom wanted to get to the room. But the innkeeper did not seem to have any inkling about this- he wanted to show off the library and museum and generally take up more time. He started telling us about the large French Toast and fruit bowl breakfast that he was prepared to make in the morning. My mom said that she just wanted coffee and perhaps a muffin or something. The guy acted offended and said he couldn't get anything else for her. It was like we'd done something wrong. The experience was weird. We finally got him to take us to the room and he started showing that off. We just wanted to settle down. I looked around the room and it seemed ok but weird since there was a bathtub in the bedroom. The side room was so creepy - it looked like an orphanage with a bunch of single beds. We had one person staying here and this was the room the innkeeper recommended. I noticed there was no TV and told my mom. She asked the innkeeper if there was anything that he could do to help with this. He stated that there was nothing he could do - they removed TVs 20 years ago and that we should have looked at the website to understand that there was no TV available. My mom did not want to stay at the inn at that point. My mom told this to the innkeeper and asked if we could get a refund. He refused because he'd "already turned down other reservations for this room". Keep in mind that there was nobody else there, and we pointed this out. He stated it that the place would be filled up this weekend "for the leaves". The leaves were long gone at this point. There was no color at all left save for a few yellow leaves. We asked if we could get a partial refund for the few days during the week - the place was EMPTY - but he refused as we should have cancelled 8 days in advance. We lost nearly $900 at this place. We spoke about this on the way back to the campground where she stayed with us in our camper. The inn was dark, she was alone with the only other person around was a man she did not know, there were no electronics - no phone to call out, no TV, she did not have a car, the innkeeper was tone-deaf to our needs, it was creepy at this point. I absolutely understand her perspective. So take from this what you will. Stay here if you like. This review is based on our experience and it's factual. We're not difficult people and just wanted something convenient with amenities. I never imagined that this B&B would be so odd that I needed to do extra investigation to understand that it would not have a TV. For us, it was a just an overpriced bedroom in a creepy dark house.

My wife and I came in search of a relaxing weekend, and we found it. We stayed in the Wilson suite, and it was very comfortable. We spent a fair amount of time on the big west-facing porch and also wandered around the country roads. Paul was a very pleasant host. We came in early June, just after Virginia began allowing limited reopening of businesses following COVID-19 shutdowns. The inn has restricted occupancy to achieve social distancing, and we also had breakfast at a separate table from the other guests. The room and bed were very comfortable. There is very lovely scenery, with the Massanutten Ridge to the East and rolling hills and farmland in all other directions. A creek also flows nearby. We also took in a beautiful hazy sunrise over the mountain one morning. We would be happy to come back sometime in the future.

When you stay here take time to ask many questions. Paul was more than willing to help us understand the history of the home and the area. He also cooks a very wonderful breakfast - worthy of a king. The old adage, Eat Breakfast like a King..... Comes to fruition here. LOL

Had a nice stay here in rural Virginia. Breakfast was excellent, though a decaf coffee option might be added. The FDR room was spacious and well furnished. Has an excellent bathroom with double shower and a tub in one of the bedrooms. This is a very historic house and yet is well maintained..

All I can say is WOW, what a great weekend my fiance and I had at the Rosendale Inn. I booked this Inn due to the fact that it was secluded enough to be romantic, yet was close to Harrisonburg and a lot of amazing new wineries that we made a day's trip out of. We stayed in the cottage and it was incredible.. romantic fire, beautiful wood floors, and a good sized bathroom and shower. The view was absolutely stunning and the nights were so quiet that I finally got some good sleep! What to say about Paul, he was incredible and truly a great man to run this Inn. He made any trips down to our cottage that we needed and he was one of the most friendliest people I have ever ran across. My fiance and I talked to him both days for quite a while and boy does he have some stories for you! He is definitely one of the best parts of this stay in my opinion! His breakfast was amazing both days as his mother and him know how to cook! We would recommend staying here to anyone who wants a romantic get away or even just a fun weekend full of wineries and great memories! Thank you Paul for your hospitality and great conversation, my fiance and I will most definitely be back this Summer and expect nothing but the same experience. 5 Stars all the way!

This place is FABULOUS! Being so rich in historical origin with no TV's to distract you, your soul will be renewed from the beauty of the landscape around you. The James Madison Suite has 2 bedrooms that are open to one another thru a 5-6 ft wide opening so there is plenty of room for a family to spread out. Luray Caverns is not far and Rosendale rests at the foot of the mountain range just below Endless Caverns so there is lots to do and see while you are there. The beds are very comfortable. The owner, Paul, goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable. If you love history & need a quiet place to get away, this is it! If my 12 year old daughter loves it, it's a winner.

We spent Halloween at “scary” Rosendale Inn. When we pulled into the driveway in the black of night there were no lights on anywhere, only the flicker of candles lining the drive and in the hand carved frightfully scary jack-o-lanterns outside the entrance door. As we got closer, being “escorted” by real “Gobblins” (seven black wild turkeys casually strolling up the lane), we could see a flickering chandelier and faint movement inside. Are these ghosts (we thought to ourselves); is this a real haunted Victorian house? We knocked and were greeted by the “scare crow man” (Paul) and other guests (some with children) who looked like they were scared too, but all grinning ear to ear. We “reluctantly” signed in (with a pen filled with “red ink,”) and then were told that our wooden coffins were awaiting us in the spooky James Madison suite, but to be mindful of the cob webs on the way up the stairway and in the hall. Oh my, what fate was awaiting us? Well, there were no cob webs as promised (the place was clean as a whistle) and no coffins either—only a big, fat, comfortable king size bed which we flopped on with a sigh of relief after our six hour drive. Our host had truly tricked and treated us. But “Ghosts” (other guests with their children) roamed the corridor after trick or treating in New Market. Despite the “haunting,” we slept like babies, and the next morning had a hearty breakfast of strong coffee, fresh squeezed “pumpkin” juice, egg soufflé, country (real locally butchered) smoked ham, and cinnamon toast served up by the “straw man.” The kids shared their treat-or-treat candy too. Our stay was a real treat.
