04.15.15Our first B&B: Rosemont Manor

When we recently made our day trip to Gettysburg, we stayed at a Bed and Breakfast between Charlottesville and Gettysburg: Historic Rosemont Manor in Berrysville, Virginia. We found the B&B on a Groupon deal and thought it would be great to be able to drive there Friday night, then drive another hour and fifteen to Gettysburg the next day, and then stay there once more Saturday night before heading home on Sunday.

All the bedrooms were named after presidents, and we stayed in the Johnson Guestroom. Breakfast was served each morning from 8:30-9:30 in the dining room. The first morning we had a delicious apple croissant and sausage, and the second morning we had a ham and cheese omelet with bacon. They serve one dish each morning, but if you have an allergy or objection, they would be happy to make you something else.

The interior was gorgeous and the staircase wrapped around the foyer, leading to each of the guestrooms. Because this was my first stay at a B&B, one thing I didn’t know to expect was the thin walls and close quarters. From our bathroom, I could hear our neighbors’ conversation perfectly, and I felt like Rob and I needed to whisper the whole time. Not a deal-breaker, but something to be aware of when visiting historic B&Bs!

A beautiful place to arrive back to after a day in Gettysburg! Then, on Sunday before leaving, we scoped out the back porch and vistas. We could have spent more time out there enjoying the peaceful morning! For anyone looking, the manor also hosts weddings and special events.

What I loved most about staying in this B&B was the charm and how it truly felt like a “getaway.” And I loved how we could pair it with our Gettysburg visit to make for a full but efficient weekend!
