“Go if you love history”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

Nice for an afternoon excursion or catch one of their ghost tour events. The historic house is well maintained and appointed with original furnishings and items. The information display in the office building gives good background and some history of the area. Need a break or a mini fieldtrip and love old houses, cemeteries, old car, this is the place to visit.

“Historic Rossetter House in Cocoa, FL”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

My movie group was using the Rossetter House in a movie they were filming, so I had access to photographing various areas of the property as well. There are 2 houses to the estate, with the office being across the street from the main house.

The interesting part of the main house is how it is connected to the rear of the house, with a separate area for cooking. Everything looks as if nothing was ever changed, original as it was back in the 1890's. Interesting to see how our forefathers lived back then.

“Neat piece of Melbourne History”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

My daughter and I decided to learn a little about the place she was born. We stumbled across the Rossetter House by accident. It was a neat little tour about an interesting family. Don't miss seeing the car in the garage and the history/story behind it.

“pretty house”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

the house is very pretty to look at ..not much to see ..the outdoors are very lovely and the people that work there are very friendly..i see that they throw events there and it makes a very lovely wedding pictures location..i didn't think it was worth the $7 that i was charged just to look at rooms in one house..but i guess i can chalk it up to keeping up with the grounds..
