Just came back from Rosemont; what a wonderful experience. A twelve room bed and breakfast (no children under 12) with a 200 year old history. Large plantation style house that has been beautifully furnished - every room is different. Stayed in the Johnson Suite and enjoyed all the peace and quiet of the estate. Staff was especially wonderful; helpful and accomodating. Grounds beautiful - flowers and bushes blooming everywhere. Could go on and on about this Manor but, you will just have to go there yourself to see how wonderful it is. It only took about 3 1/4 hours to get there from Pa. and it was a beautiful rides. Nearby Shoenadoah National Park and numerous wineries kept us busy while we were there. Will definitely be returning soon.

Room Tip: Did not really see any room that was not a good choice. You can pick your room over the website.

Thank you, Nancy, for sharing your experience at Rosemont. We are so glad you made the scenic drive down from Pennsylvania to be with us. You definitely picked a great time of year to be with us as our spring blooms were at their peak -- but of course, we think Rosemont is beautiful any time of year! Thank you especially for saying that people need to "see for themselves how wonderful Rosemont is" -- we often say that to potential guests, brides, and families. We are blessed to have many beautiful and historic things to capture in photographs, but all pale in comparison to the real thing. Thanks again for your kind words, and come see us again soon!

Warmly,
Biff Genda

What a wonderful place to celebrate almost any occasion. The grounds were in full bloom, the house is beautiful, the staff accommodating and very personable. The Churchill suite was the entire end of the second floor and had windows on all three sides, looking out over gorgeous grounds. Our suite was spacious (the guestrooms, however, are quite small, though lovely) with lots of chests. The breakfasts are delicious and served on beautiful china in the lovely dining room. The welcome reception with wine, cheese and crackers, and fruit was refreshing and enjoyed in the chairs on the lawn.

If you make a trip to D.C. and want to get away from the crowds for a couple of days, there is no better place to stay than this place! During the non high-traffic periods of the day, it's only about an hour drive from D.C. The inn itself is just beautiful and has only been open to the public as an inn for a few years. It was the prior residence at one time of the former govenor Harry Byrd. While it used to have about 500 acres attached to it, I think it has all been sold off except for about 50-60 acres, but there is still plenty of room to feel like you are isolated. You drive down a long winding road to reach the house. Once inside, there is a great entrance and a beautiful stairwell leading to the bedrooms. I believe there are around 4 suites and 10 or so regular bedrooms. They leave the doors open of the ones not in use, so we peeked in the empty rooms and they are all beautiful. We stayed in the Churchill Suite, and it had great views and was very large. Each morning we had a nice breakfast and the wait starff was very nice and helpful. Since we bought a package, they included a picnic lunch for us our second day, which was very good and unexpected! I would say the only slightly down side to staying there is that the really excellent restaurants close to Berryville are in Winchester, which is about 10 miles away, but no big deal really. You are close to many many winieries, so that's a plus to staying there. I would definitely go back to this inn!

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet and I don't think you could choose a bad room. All the suites are big and beautiful. Most the rooms are upstairs, so if you have a problem getting around, ask for a downstairs room. I know there is one suite downstairs, but not sure if there are regular rooms downstairs.

Thank you so much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! At Rosemont, we have 5 Luxury Suites, 6 Guest Rooms, and our newest addition, the "Byrd's Nest" which is a detached cottage which we often call "the honeymoon suite". The grounds are made up of 60 acres, most of which is manicured and available for a leisurely stroll, picnic lunch, or just to "sit a spell" in one of our adirondack chairs.

As far as restaurants, as you said there are a number of wonderful places in nearby Winchester, but we also recommend the Battletown Inn located just down the road from Rosemont in Berryville, as well as L'Auberge Provencale which is located a few minutes outside of Berryville on Route 340.

Again, thank you for sharing your experience at Rosemont and we hope to see you again soon!

My boyfriend and I both needed a vacation full of relaxation so we booked a trip to Rosemont Manor for three nights. Brian and I had never stayed at a B&B so we were a little nervous about what our weekend would entail. We arrived on Friday evening around 4:30pm and we were greeted the second we walked in the door. The hostess checked us in, gave us a package that included: (6) free tasting passes for local wineries, multiple coupons for local eateries, and a map to help us get around. The hostess brought us to our room and as we were walking up the stairs Andrew, the Innkeeper, said "Carly! Is that you? Welcome to Rosemont!" It was a very nice touch and made us feel at home immediately! Upon entering the room, we were extremely pleased. We chose The Eisenhower Suite - it was a beautiful room from the claw foot tub to the iPod docking station.

That night we went out and found a little town called Middleburg. We had dinner at a little pub in town. The food and service were both enjoyable. After dinner we went back to Rosemont. We crept quietly into the house and were immediately flagged into the living room by some of the other guests. There were three couples staying at Rosemont that night, who had all stayed there previously, and they were a delight! We stayed up for a few hours talking and enjoying a couple cocktails. The next morning Brian and I woke up around 8:00am and headed down for breakfast shortly thereafter. We were given impeccable service and the breakfast was WONDERFUL! The chef came out to check on us and told us she was making her specialty - Gingerbread Pancakes.. yummm!!

That day we headed out for our Winery Tour around 11am. The first winery we visited, which ended up being our favorite, was North Gate. The lady who was hosting the tasting for us was actually the owner. She told us all about the grapes, what goes into the execution of a superior wine product, and why she enjoys it so much. Buy the apple wine! It is amazzzzing! We also visited Bluemont, Veramar, and Hillsborough. By the way - the hostesses at Veramar were very extremely friendly! We had a great time there as well!

After visiting all of the wineries, we went back to Rosemont and enjoyed a nice bottle of rose outside in the adirondack chairs that overlooked the property. We watched the sunset, took a little nap, and headed back out. We had dinner at The Berryville Grille. It is a very nice spot with afforable eats! After dinner we went to Winchester, which is a small town located about 10 minutes away from Berryville. Winchester has a slue of little pubs, restaurants, and shops. Brian and I found Piccadilly Public House - it had great music and a friendly staff! We actually ended up going back the next day!

We wrapped up our weekend by enjoying a lovely picnic lunch on Sunday (packed by Andrew!), strolling through the town of Winchester, and then going to L'auberge Provencale for Easter dinner. I highly recommend you check out that restaurant - it is wonderful!!

The entire vacation was perfect. We will certainly be going back!!

Room Tip: They are all beautiful! I recommend you go for a suite! They are HUGE!

Dear Carly,

Thank you so much for your review! We absolutely loved having you here at Rosemont and it sounds like you made the most of your time in the area. Kudos on your choices -- from the wineries to the Berryville Grille, to taking the time to enjoy the sunset views from the Portico. Middleburg and Winchester are also great locations to take in while you are here, so I'm pleased that you were able to fit those visits in as well.

So glad to hear that you enjoyed your top-notch breakfast! We are certainly blessed with wonderful cooks and I agree - those gingerbread pancakes are fabulous!

Thank you also for mentioning the Eisenhower Suite with its clawfoot tub - it's one of our favorites, too.

Again, we appreciate your kind words, and we look forward to seeing you at Rosemont again soon.

Warmly,

William "Biff" Genda
Owner

In my experience, not many people can honestly say they had the perfect wedding. Thanks in large part to Rosemont, I am one person who can.

I am not one of those women who grew up planning her wedding. When it came time to get married, I wanted simple, meaningful, and drama- and stress-free. My husband and I wanted a beautiful outdoor place to get married, in the scene Shenandoah. We wanted to find somewhere in Virginia convenient to airports and hotels, since both of our families would be traveling from diverse states.

I compiled a list of dozens of vineyards, wineries, and historic manor houses in the Shenandoah area. The very first one we visited was Rosemont. We were stunned by how beautiful it was, and the staff (three of them!) took the time to sit down to talk to us. We were not to realize until later how rare that was. My husband was ready to sign the paperwork right away. I was a little intimidated by the price, and insisted we visited all the other places on our agenda before making a decision. I was amazed. For not much less than Rosemont was asking, we could rent out barely decorated garages, muddy fields, rundown old houses, or almost inaccessible, inappropriately small buildings. It was staggering. We got back to Rosemont as soon as we could, and booked the First Lady Wedding package.

I am so glad we did. Working with Rosemont made planning our wedding probably as stress-free as such an endeavor could be. They were creative in helping us come up with pie-in-the-sky ideas, and realistic in helping us address our budget. They worked with us on the size of the wedding and reception, and proposed locations for each. Staying in one location all weekend—for the rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception—gave the whole weekend a wonderful sense of self-containment and continuity. And the historical beauty of the house is not to be rivaled.

We ended up doing a rehearsal dinner inside, with our wedding out on the lawn (I walked out onto the portico), and the reception in the gorgeous Carriage House. Each event had its own distinct flavor, but each was surpassingly elegant and lovely, and a perfect reflection of our taste and style. The rehearsal dinner was the perfect size and coziness in the parlor, and we were able to move out into another room to watch a slideshow of photos. The wedding out on the lawn was absolutely amazing. The hills and trees made the perfect backdrop, and I won’t ever forget the way it looked. The gazebo, rocks, fountains, fields, trees, and guest houses made for absolutely stunning wedding photos. And the Carriage House was decked out in fairy lights (a happy surprise for us!) and we had decorated with candles and old-fashioned barn lanterns. It was absolutely perfect, exactly the picture I had in my mind.

Rosemont partners with Celebrations Catering, which meant we didn’t have to look for or test out caterers; an excellent one was built right in, and Celebrations and Rosemont work together very well, coordinating table linens, chairs, tables, decorations, menus, and layouts.
We got married on an October afternoon, and were very lucky to have perfect weather and stunning golden light. Our photographers took pictures of us separately getting ready, and here’s something I hadn’t anticipated when planning the wedding: The preparation photos are almost as good as the ceremony ones, with the Rosemont suites as backdrops. (The dapper groomsmen in the red Churchill suite, and the demure bridesmaids in the sunny Eisenhower suite.) They’re lovely intimate portraits.

We had a lot of family and large wedding parties, but we were able to house all our immediate family at the Rosemont itself for the entire weekend. Some of our close friends and the rest of the wedding party were able to stay in the houses on the grounds, which was very convenient and cozy for everyone. It was perfect. Having everything in one place allowed me (and everyone else in the wedding party and family) to remain calmer than we would have any other way.

We didn’t have to rush around driving anywhere, nothing important got lost in anyone’s car or left somewhere it shouldn’t have been, and it felt like a big, old-fashioned house party with all of us running into and out of each others’ rooms getting ready. The suites are so beautiful and comfortable that it was like being at a luxurious hotel, but with the cozy intimacy of staying at someone’s house. It’s as if, for this weekend, you miraculously inherit a gorgeous estate, run by family who want nothing more than to see you happy.

I would highly recommend anyone get married this way. The First Lady Package offers a wonderful value; having family housed all in one place was priceless, the house itself is beautiful, and the scenery is unmatched. The experience is one I will treasure, and the photos are gems that will last forever. I had no idea a wedding could be all at once beautiful and perfect, and also so calm and so much fun. Rosemont is a perfect place to have your wedding.

Room Tip: They're all beautiful, but the bigger suites (Eisenhower, Roosevelt, Nixon, Churchill) are well worth it. Byrd's study is cool but, in my opinion, the suites are nicer.

You, your hubby, and your families are so dear to us and we are thrilled to have been a part of your big day. At Rosemont, our number one priority for ALL our guests -- whether they come for a wedding, a corporate event, a Manor House tea, or for B&B accommodations -- is that they feel like we take care of them "like family". Rosemont was, after all, a home long before it was a business, and we go to great lengths to make sure that our guests experience the elegance of top-notch accommodations while still feeling at home. We appreciate you relating the care and attention you were given at Rosemont throughout the wedding "process" and we hope that we always meet that same standard with all of our guests. Best wishes to you in the future, and please come back and see us!

Blessings,
Biff Genda
