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.
How to Get There
My fiancé and I spent two nights at Rosemont Manor in January while visiting the Shenandoah Valley area and it did not disappoint. This was a first experience for both of us at a B&B and we were both impressed. Upon arriving, we were greeted by Marta who helped us check in and made us feel very welcome. Both mornings Brandon served an amazing breakfast, and Suzanne was around on Saturday to greet us in the afternoon when we can back to relax for a bit. The staff here is extremely helpful and goes out of their way to make you feel at home, something we really appreciated. The home is beautiful and full of history! We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend, and hopefully we will be able to return again in the future!
About 4 years ago, I attended one of their Spring tea parties with my then 14-yr-old daughter. After many years asking to go back, she bought us tickets to go to their Christmas Tea this year. It was so worth it! The manor was beautifully decorated for the holidays and the tour was as interesting as always. The history of the manor is fascinating, including the many visits by U.S. Presidents over the years. This time, we were also able to see the rooms inside the manor and they were impressively appointed. Of course, the tea and treats were absolutely delicious as well, and the staff very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back again!
We enjoyed a delightful Christmas Tea with other guests in rooms all decorated with various Christmas themes. The staff was friendly and engaging and the service was excellent. Talked history with the owner. Stayed in the Byrd Study overlooking the Portico from a balcony. Beautiful sunrise and delicious breakfast. Well worth the price. So beautiful and historic.
My husband and I stayed at Historic Rosemont Manor this week (Monday and Tuesday nights)...it was our first experience ever at a bed and breakfast, and it was wonderful! From the time we made our reservation with Marta (who also greeted us upon arrival!), to the wonderful Suzanne who served our breakfast each morning, we had such a lovely time. The Churchill Room was fabulous, as were all of the other rooms we peeked at. Nice and quiet, in a beautiful setting, I highly recommend this lovely home away from home for a quick getaway! 5 stars!
We recently stayed at Rosemont Manor for a wedding and were wowed by the service throughout the entire stay. Each member of the staff was friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had all we needed. From the check in service, where the clerk carried my suitcase up the stairs, to the hostesses at the bridal events, to the host at the reception, the service went beyond expectations. I'm sure the bridal couple was thrilled.
Our room was very small, to be expected in a historic building, but the bathroom was large with a good hot shower. The manor is in need of some maintenance and I'm sure the staff will get there. Again, the manor is historic and old buildings need lots of TLC. The history of the manor is so interesting and the grounds are a pleasurable place to walk. Additionally, there is plenty to do in the area, from the nearby wineries, to a short drive to places like Harper's Ferry.
