“BEST B&B WE'VE EVER STAYED IN!”
Reviewed 7 June 2011

I have traveled to many B&B's over the years across the country and I have never stayed anywhere as nice and as friendly as this place. My boyfriend and I were impressed with the friendliness of the owners and the style of the Inn as well. You will not be staying in your grandmother's house here. This place is new, incredibly clean and decorated like a pro. Our room was immaculate, almost as if we were the first ones to ever stay there. The bed was cozy and comfortable as well. We were able to adjust the light and temperature in our room as well. The shower was clean and stocked with soap/shampoo/conditioner and very very clean. In the hallway outside our room there was a cabinet filled with toiletries a traveler might forget.

In the lobby/ living room area was equipped with a refrigerator stocked with sodas/ water and there was a place to make tea/coffee anytime you wanted (with to-go cups as well). Snacks were also stocked (my boyfriend LOVED that!) and there were wine/drinking glasses available for us to have wine as well. Freshly baked cookies are a plus too!

BREAKFAST was AMAZING! Everything was brought to you and the presentation of every meal was great! I am still thinking about the fruit and delicious meals we had there. I enjoyed every second staying at the Rosemary Inn and it was perfect fro a romantic getaway. Although it is a little pricey, you honestly get what you pay for!

My Final advice about this place? YOU SHOULD STAY HERE!

This is our first time at a B&B so we didn't know what to expect - but from the minute we pulled into the driveway - we knew it was going to be wonderful. We were greeted by Theo and he proceeded to show us around the Inn and the grounds. The Inn is beautifully decorated, our room (Hahn) was extremely comfortable - we really liked the oversize shower in our bathroom, and the breakfast was plentiful and delicious! We were so impressed with the attention to detail - from the snack drawer/fridge with beverages to the Armoire with those essentials you forgot to pack! We were able to mingle with some of the other guests during our stay and one family told us they had stayed at several B&Bs but The RoseMary Inn was by far the nicest they've every stayed in. Elaine and Theo made our stay very special and we will definitely be booking with them the next time we are in the area.

My wife and i stayed here on Friday May 13.

Without a doubt, this was the best B&B we have ever stayed at... Here or in Europe! Theo (a native of Holland) and his wife are lovely people who have transformed the beautiful farm property into a first class place to stay. The newly renovated house and rooms are absolutely spectacular - we stayed in the Heiss room - a contemporary room with an amazing double shower. Everything is brand new and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was very good and very filling.

If you are looking for a tranquil setting with a European flavor stay here you will not be disappointed

We stayed at the RoseMary Inn with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. My wife and I were immediately thrilled with the elegant and cozy decor, wonderful layout, and tranquil atmosphere. Since we occupied the entire Inn, I did have a chance to look at every guest room and I can say with complete candor, there is not a bad room in the bunch. Every one unique and special, but all are wonderfully decorated and have every imaginable comfort. I would rank these guest rooms at par OR HIGHER than a room at a Ritz Carlton, Mandarin Oriental, or other ultra-luxury hotel. Bathrooms—unique and luxurious. Beds—as comfortable as they get.

Elaine and Theo were terrific hosts and arranged a wonderful cocktail hour for all of us in the spacious living room area. Their dedication to the Inn is obvious in every room you enter. On Sunday morning they prepared a delicious breakfast, as we shared coffee and stories from previous evening.

We visited with a group of ten guests and left with ten people that can't wait to return.

If you are traveling in the Columbia area, you really need to experience the place. If you are not traveling through.... make it a point to escape there for at least a night. You will be very happy you did!

Thank you Elayne and Theo!!!!

From the time we arrived it was apparent that Elaine and Theo love hosting their bed and breakfast. Attention to detail is second to none, they have thought of everything. The Bender room was spacious, comfortable and the steam shower delightful. We slept wonderfully on the comfortable bed with plush sheets, down comforter and fabulous pillows. My wife and I enjoyed a game of Scrabble in the library, the snow covered landscape, watching the beautiful white tail deer and seeing the sights nearby. The RoseMary Inn is close to so many attractions! My wife and I are already planning our next stay here!

We were looking for accommodations near Blairstown and were given the RoseMary Inn as a name. Tripadvisor reviews were great so we decided to try it. It was wonderful! Not sure we've ever stayed in a B&B that was so quiet and so clean. Very much like an Inn where we stayed in Alsace this past summer. The setting is beautiful and Theo and Elaine were knowledgeable about every little road we explored and the history of the area. We stayed in the Hahn Room which was quite comfortable-a HUGE bathroom. We had the living room downstairs if we needed an extra sitting area. Breakfast was delicious ---and huge. Bring your appetites. Homemade scones to die for. Ten minutes from Blairstown and about the same to the Gap. We'll definitely return.

We had a lovely stay at the Rosemary Inn, Theo and Elaine are great, very friendly and accommodating and so knowledgeable about the area. The common areas are beautifully decorated but remain cozy and comfortable, not stuffy. The rooms are gorgeous comfortable and impeccably clean. We will definitely go back.
