A beautiful Georgian mansion visited by six U.S. presidents, including a welcome reception
If Historic Rosemont Manor had kept a guest ledger throughout its more than 200 years, the book might be sitting in a museum today. The TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning hotel’s roster of previous visitors reads like a who’s-who of American-history icons. It includes not just seven presidents, Kennedy and FDR among them, but Charles Lindbergh and Albert Einstein. Even more impressively, such a book would comprise but a page in the property’s past. You could write a treatise on this Georgian mansion’s aristocratic owners, military importance and social scene – and indeed, someone already has.
Why the prestige? Part of it’s surely the former residence’s D.C.-accessible address (its 60 Shenandoah Valley-facing acres sit less than an hour from the bustling capital) and part of it’s the graciousness that comes with such a setting. Berryville is a cradle of Southern gentility, and beyond the Grand Portico’s fluted Doric columns are richly appointed accommodations, featuring details like mahogany four-poster beds, gold-leaf wallpaper or double-headed showers. Each of these honors an iconic guest from that list, so stay in one, and keep history alive.
The accommodations at Historic Rosemont Manor are individually decorated to honor the legacy of the many American-history icons they’re named for, each of whom has previously graced the property’s gracious grounds. This elaborate tribute entails rich appointments, with upholstery that might include velvet or brocade and furnishings that might include a mahogany four-poster bed, double-headed shower or balcony. Upgrade from the Standard to Deluxe room, for added comfort.

Berryville is in rural Virginia’s Clarke County, and while you’re in town, you can partake in all the proper country pleasures. There’s plenty of choice in the way of golf, ballooning, fruit-picking and horseback riding, and if you’d rather continue your Rosemont Manor history lesson, you can visit a local museum or battlefield.
